NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dr. Betsey Johnson was in the house Wednesday with a dose of pretty, a dose of hip-hop and a whole lot of rock 'n' roll during her ever-loopy, always fun runway show at New York Fashion Week.

Taking on a medical theme with looks dubbed "Tylenol Tara" and "Benadryl Barbie," models in teased pink hair put on the swagger in the 71-year-old's trademark poofy prom dresses and metal "Betsey" necklaces. They pranced in metallic black, white and pink petticoats, or flirted in tight minis and leggings done in black, and sexy animal and floral prints.

Post-bankruptcy, the first season of her Style network reality show a wrap, Johnson has no intention of growing up, though her adorable granddaughters, Layla and Ella, now join her on the runway for her traditional cartwheel and splits. That is, after the day-of-the-week girls waved American flags and showed off their short boy undies in bright yellow, green and blue.
