Betsey Oh Betsey, Has Anyone Seen The Real Betsey Johnson???

Photography by Ricardo Garcia. Betsey Johnson far right.

Another frosty winter night was in front of us as we headed towards the Meat-Smacking district (don’t you hate the Disneyland style set up the city carved out of the streets there?) to cover the Betsey Johnson after party.  I handed my card to the doorman and I was not on the list.  Some strong words were exchanged and I wasn’t taking “no” as the final answer.  Fortunately, the “other” list was inside the door.  The apologies were exchanged and we headed towards the bar with my camera in hand.

I had a gander to my right, “was that Betsey Johnson?” I thought to myself.  No, it wasn’t.  I ran into a guy who dressed like Betsey Johnson, but certainly he was not Betsey.  In fact, I didn’t know if I was back in the 80’s with Madonna’s Like A Virgin followers or Cyndi Lauper colorful styled clones (obviously without died hair and a classier version). Nonetheless, champagne and vodka flowed while everyone seemed to be all smiles.
