Betsey Johnson shows can always be counted on for fun. This season the fantastical designer didn't disappoint, presenting us with her "Prenup" collection of wacky wedding wear and bridal lingerie. She opened the show with one gay and one lesbian couple, and closed with a bouquet toss and a drag queen. Given the debauchery inside the tents, it's no surprise that the designer's die-hard fans include Project Runway's Miss J, who we caught after the show. We also found a much more demurely dressed Jessica Hart, Karlie Kloss, and Christina Milan. Click through for a round up of Day 7's best and wildest fashion from outside the tents.

Monday afternoon, designer Karen Walker brought us to the West Side for her show at Pier 59. On the runway, Walker presented a modern take on a '70s vibe, using a retro palette of autumnal hues. Outside of the show, the street style reflected the designer's quirky aesthetic, and of course there were plenty of Walker's infamous statement-making sunnies both on and off the runway. Fashion bloggers Rumi Neely and Kelly Framel (of Fashion Toast and The Glamourai, respectively) came out to support, and a bevy of magazine editors streamed in wearing cheeky graphic prints and sensible shoes.
