Betsey Johnson isn't letting bankruptcy rain on her fashion parade!

Despite filing for Chapter 11 in April, the eccentric designer is teaming up with The Levy Group's designer director, Suzi Chin, on a line of dresses that will be unveiled at her retrospective runway presentation next month.

The "solid and printed sexy, flowing" frocks will be relatively affordable, with prices ranging from $99 to $249, once they hit finer retailers' racks in the very near future.

We can't wait to see what BJ has up her sleeve!

It seems like bringing Nina Garcia onboard was just the beginning.
As another part of JCPenney's renovation, Ron Johnson, the company's CEO, will be putting boutiques, shops and stores inside the larger shopping space.

This will include things like denim bars, with everything from Arizona Jean Co. to Betseyville by Betsey Johnson.

Best, and most interesting of all, one of these shops will be a barber!

It's time for the baring of the leg!

Chaka Khan posed in the iconic leg demonstration, a la Angelina Jolie, at the BET Awards on Sunday looking ready to PAR-TAY.

The Queen of Funk donned a tight black fitting dress, with a slit that went all the way up to her unmentionables, paired with Betsey Johnson heels.

We don't know what's more puzzling - Chaka's red highlights, long chain earrings, body hugging attire, or her limb popping out!

Why must the singer do this to us?

When tutus go bad…

Porscha Coleman thought she was working the red carpet when she arrived at the BET Awards on Sunday, but we're here to burst her petticoat wearing bubble!

The singer wore a colorful tutu with a train paired with a bra, puffy sleeves, lace heels, studded hat, and chains.

Did Porscha go digging into Betsey Johnson's bankruptcy reject bins for her outfit?!?

We're assuming so, because where else could she have snatched her ridiculous ensemble?

Betsey Johnson's headed to the small screen!

The Style Network announced this week the eccentric designer will co-star alongside her daughter and muse Lulu in a new reality show titled Betsey + Lulu.

The show, airing later this year, will not only follow the mother-daughter duo around New York City, but also document Lulu's attempt to launch her own clothing label.
