Betsey Johnson Gets Lifetime Achievement Award

Last night's CFDA awards in New York City was a big moment for fashion. Among our favorite winners was Betsey Johnson, who received the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.

"I am overly very happy that it's over—I get nervous about speeches," Betsey Johnson told Style magazine. "It was the best awards ceremony I have ever been to, and I have been to a lot of them. Now, is there anywhere I can get some champagne?"

What can be better than receiving an award like this? How about receiving it with your daughter and two gorgeous granddaughters by your side.

Fabulous designer Johnson rocked the red carpet with her stunning daughter Lulu and granddaughters, Ella and Layla, while wearing a prison-striped jumpsuit, studded booties and some over-the-top jewelry. Did you expect anything less from this exotic fashionista?

Betsey Johnson is known for the infamous cartwheel and split she performed at one of her runway shows with her granddaughters. What better place to reenact her gymnastic skills than on the red carpet en route to receiving her award?

Her whole career, Johnson has been recognized for her punk-pretty pieces that have taken over every teenage girl's closet. This award, marking a new stage in her life, is pushing her to become the ultimate mom/grandma. In an interview on AOL, Johnson mentions that she wants to be as much with her family as she is with her work.

Sounds like the perfect work-life-family balance to me! Congrats, Betsey Johnson!
