One year older and twice the fun is the only way to describe Betsey Johnson on her birthday. The fashion designer, who’s been making pink cool for the past 40 years, turns 73 today and we're pretty sure we know how she will be celebrating: by doing her signature move, the splits!

Yes, Betsey Johnson can do the splits and she does it often: at fashion shows, on red carpets, and during interviews (we've witnessed it!). And so, in honor of one of our favorite fashion designers, who never ceases to entertain and amuse, we’ve rounded up Johnson’s best moments doing the splits in public. Truth be told, we're not sure how she does it at her age (crazy yoga regimen?), but more power to her!
