Afternoon tea with the eternally youthful, infectiously energetic designer Betsey Johnson at the landmark Plaza Hotel cannot not be fun, and in fact it was a delight. We were there to mark the first anniversary of hotel’s Eloise-themed suite that she designed (there is some shared resemblance between Johnson and the insouciant heroine). After sipping pink Champagne and munching cucumber sandwiches (and being shocked to hear that she has GRANDCHILDREN), Johnson explained how Charlie Sheen is the reason she has not gotten to spend the night in her room, and how she ended up with a closet full of shoes she doesn’t wear. “They sure feel good in the store,” she said wistfully. Betsey, we feel you. Don’t miss the delightfulness.
