Betsey Johnson celebrates lifetime achievement -- her way

From Betsey Johnson's splits to Caitlyn Jenner's hair inspiration, here's what's making fashion news today

Betsey Johnson must have been super-excited about receiving the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America on Monday. She did her trademark split -- on the red carpet, onstage to accept the award and at the cocktail reception.

We all know that actresses usually appear on red carpets in dresses they didn't pay for. Instead they are often walking billboards for a fashion label. It turns out that can be pretty lucrative. At the Vulture Festival in New York over the weekend, the topic came up during a panel discussion featuring some prominent fashion stylists. Stylist Jessica Paster said that in her experience, stylists receive $30,000 to $50,000 for choosing the dress, and that actresses often receive $100,000 to $250,000 for wearing it. [The Cut]

Marc Jacobs' new fragrance, Decadence, comes in a green bottle that looks like an evening bag. “I wanted something that evoked the sense of a bag, with python and gold chain and a black silk tassel, so it had a kind of opulence and glamour and became an object of desire,” he told writer Julie Naughton at WWD.
