Age-defying, cartwheel-crazy designer Betsey Johnson has herself a new look. Johnson, who is keeping busy with a line of dresses to debut in department stores this spring, stopped by The Grove on Saturday to celebrate the mall's 10th anniversary and a shoe she designed in honor of the occasion for Nordstrom. Working a "Hollywood gold cupcake dress" of her own creation, the fashion icon had traded her typically choppy cut for sleek, glossy blonde pigtails. More than 500 fans turned out for the event and to shop Johnson's pink, studded high-heeled pump. Named The Grovee, it will be available at the store through the end of August.
