Punker Katy Perry loves Betsey Johnson! Although these flirty little mini dresses aren't all her style, they definitely are recognizable as Betsey Johnson.
Katy Perry says that's what she likes about the fashions. Put them on, get a compliment, say Betsey Johnson and everyone knows what you are talking about.
