Betsey Johnson Is A Huge Kate Middleton Fan & Thinks She's Handling Everything So Well: 'She's So Beautiful!'

We got to catch up with the fun-loving designer at her perfume launch and while some are quick to knock Kate, Betsey gushed about the Duchess and how down to earth she is!

Betsey Johnson‘s birthday is just a day away, but the designer celebrated a day early with a brunch unveiling her fragrance, ‘Too Too,’ in NYC on Aug. 9. In true Betsey fashion, there was awesome music, hot pink cupcakes, ballerinas, and the designer herself, clad in bright pink, doing splits! We got to chat with Betsey, who told us all about the inspiration behind her fragrance. She also told us why she’s so enamored by Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Royal couple’s attempt at living a normal lifestyle. While Vivienne Westwood has no problem knocking Kate, Betsey’s opinion couldn’t be any more different!

“I love her, and I love the two of them together,” she said. “I think they’re going to do big things and really try to take care of a lot of people around the world.”

Some may be quick to judge the Duchess, but Betsey commends her ability to remain calm, cool, and collected. There’s no denying the fact that she’s under extreme pressure and scrutiny! “She’s so beautiful and I think she’s handling the whole kit & kaboodle so well.”

Here at we really applaud the Royal couple for staying so grounded — and Betsey agrees! “I appreciate their hard try and all of their efforts to attempt to have a more ‘real’ lifestyle.”

While we’ve been smitten with Kate for a while now, her wedding gown gained her a lot of respect in Betsey’s book! “I was so happy when she chose Alexander McQueen! If she didn’t do that, I don’t know.”

Thank you Betsey Johnson for sticking up for Kate. She is truly a gem and we love her and William together.

Maybe more fashion designers will speak up Kate’s behalf.

And someday, I pray that Kate will call on you for one of your hot designes. Maybe something she can wear if and when William takes her out for a romantic moonlit dinner.
