Collab We Love: Betsey Johnson x Urban Outfitters

Collab We Love: Betsey Johnson x Urban Outfitters(Art by Tanya Leigh Washington; Source: Betsey Johnson Vintage for Urban Outfitters 'Juliana Rose' Maxi Dress, $129; and 'Alice' Flutter Midi Dress, $99)Betsey Johnson's clothes are not for the timid of heart. This is, after all, the woman who famously declared, "Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they'd just walk around naked at all times." Instead, the designer views fashion as an opportunity for excessive girly glam.

If her over-the-top approach to dressing is a little too intimidating (or pricey), you might dare to reconsider her latest collection for Urban Outfitters. The indie retailer has selected eight of her feminine frocks from the '90s, which Johnson has re-created for the lifestyle brand at a more attainable price point.
