More Spring 2011
Designer Gwen Stefani made her Spring 2011 collection ALL about prints. The vibrant mix of prints were influenced by African tribal style and the plaid prints were all Gwen style. The collection was filled with ruffles on dresses and tops, printed handbags, bustiers, plaid pants (tight and baggy), strappy platform pumps, bright beaded necklaces, plaid blazers, and so many more funky mixes.

Talk about an colorful and eclectic mix of clothes. All models had on super bright makeup and messy hair, then there were tiaras, sailor caps, Ride Me chokers, bike chain necklaces, striped thigh highs, 80's style prom dresses with layers of taffeta, funky biker wear complete with bodysuit, just a never ending show filled with surprises. Of course, it is Betsey Johnson, who came out after the show riding a bike
Classic Betsey...before she did her infamous kart wheel
This model actually rode the skateboard down the runway...until she tripped!
Love this skeletal bodysuit with a bicycle chain necklace, motorcycle helmet, and white jeweled headband
Betsey Johnson shows aren't complete without some time of florals. One was a two piece the other an old school dress paired with bright red rain boots
My favorite princess two piece all ruffled up with a tiara and diamond studded heels
The backdrop of the runway was little home amongst a wheat field. The clothes exuded a free spirited girl from a peasant home life. There was a lot of patchwork and paisley in all shades of brown, light blue, burnt red, ash, slate, and lilac. Sui said, "This spring I was inspired by Joni Mitchell, Thomas Eakins, Little House on the Prairie, Neil Young, Andrew Wyeth, Holly Hobbie, Ladies of the Canyon, Winslow Homer...the poetry and romanticism of the American prairie." All of that was clearly demonstrated in this show with silk paisley, handkerchief skirt bottoms, fringed ponchos, cream lace shorts, apron dresses, bell bottoms, printed bandanas, and endless chiffon. Everything was accessorized with some type of feather rope necklace, wood, turquoise, and bone beads, feathered and dried grass headbands.
