Betsey Johnson's runway shows are always a hoot, to say the least—last year, Nicki Minaj almost couldn't handle Betsey's signature split. Unfortunately Nicki Minaj wasn't there this year, but a pregnant Kristen Cavallari was, and people were going apeshit over her. Coco Rocha was also there, in her third outfit of the day, as well as Cory Kennedy and that hunky Nigel Barker.

But enough about that, let's just talk about Betsey and her show. Before the models walked out, shots of screaming female teens played on a projector above. The looks were all titled with something Beatles or London related (the first was Sgt. Pepper, another, The Walrus) and Beatles songs did definitely play—spliced between 50 Cent and Lil' Mama (yep, that lipgloss song.)

At the end of the show, Betsey's daughter Lulu came out in the final number to "Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds," to which Betsey and her granddaughter Layla soon joined. Then, naturally, Betsey did a cartwheel and her split, and then a line of cheerleader models came out with pom-poms. You know, the usual Betsey show.
