Dubbed ‘Betsey’s Hot,’ the new collection was definitely rock and roll, drawing influences from the Swinging Sixties, the Disco Seventies, and MTV Eighties. There were plenty of day-glo colors, leopard prints, fishnets, thigh-highs, and more to go around. Betsey also offered a slew of accessories that are sure to appeal to her many fans. The collection wasn’t for the faint of heart or the more conservative shoppers, but if you wanted to make a statement, Betsey’s latest will shout it out to the world.
