Fashion News: Betsey Johnson Given Lifetime Award

By Liz Donovan

Tastefully outlandish designer Betsey Johnson was awarded the 2009 Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in Fashion by the National Arts Club in Manhattan. The award was given at a black-tie presentation last month, which drew a large crowd of fashion editors and insiders, and even Betsey’s childhood dance instructor (possibly the same woman who taught the 67-year-old designer how to nail that famous runway cartwheel). “I’m so excited, honored, and thrilled,” said Betsey. “It doesn’t get any better than this.” Congratulations, Betsey!
