Forget about carbohydrate-phobic supermodels: A wild pack of Playboy bunnies, complete with glittering furry ears, triple-F cups and skyscraper heels stormed the tents at Bryant Park today. It was all part of neon-haired and notoriously outrageous designer Betsey Johnson's playful Spring fashion romp.
Johnson's 80-plus looks were divided into 12 segmentsone for each month of the year. Real-life Playboy Playmates cruised the catwalk wearing barely there georgette dresses, rhinestone-encrusted bikinis, sequined tube tops and "bunny belle" strapless dresses. There were also voluminous (but always short) layered tulle skirts, flamenco dresses, and festive paisley wraps in all shades of fuchsia. Johnson even showed her version of a bridal outfita skimpy white satin corsetlike suit accessorized with a little bow tie, a trail of scandalous bridesmaids and not much else.
