Betsey Johnson appeared on the red carpet for the New York City Ballet's spring gala on Wednesday night accompanied by—or at least accessorizing with—a model wearing a leash. Since the ballet is performing The Seven Deadly Sins, Stephanie Wagenman, Johnson's guest, was dressed as Wrath, complete with Hot Topic hair and the word "Anger" written on her chest in case anyone missed the point. This ought to placate anyone who thought the Met Ball red carpet was unacceptably safe and dull.
