Janice Dickinson walks off with $20K in jewels.

“See ya later bitches!”

Janice Dickinson showed the colorful side of Fashion Week at a benefit on Saturday. The former “America’s Next Top Model” judge — and self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” — was accused of walking off the catwalk with $20,000 in jewelry.

Dickinson participated in a runway show benefit, “The Reality of FASHION The Reality of AIDS,” at the Altman Building with “Jersey Shore” star Deena Cortese, “Mob Wives” Drita D’Avanzo and Ramona Rizzo and “Real Housewives” Sheree Whitfield, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer.

The bumpy runway began, we hear, when Dickinson asked organizers to pay to fly her fiancé, Dr. Robert Gerner, to New York with her. Our source says she explained his presence was crucial because, “Now that I’m sober, I really can’t go anywhere without him.” Organizers didn’t pay for his trip, but Gerner came on his own steam.

But after Janice walked the catwalk, sources say she left without returning loaned gems from brand Effy, infuriating organizers.

“She left with thousands of dollars of jewelry still on,” a source told us.

Sources add that Dickinson eventually turned in most of the gems to the company, but say organizers were still chasing her as late as last night to track down three unreturned pieces, including two valuable diamond bracelets.

But Dickinson’s rep Brad Taylor says she never intended to keep the jewels, and accidentally walked out of the event still wearing the baubles.

He adds that she gave back everything she wore a day after the show by handing the goods to him to return. Dickinson told us, “If you’re insinuating anything funny going on, you’re barking up the wrong tree.”

We also hear the ageless beauty managed to say one nice thing during her runway experience. The divalicious dame was overheard telling rapper Lil’ Kim she was a fan of R&B singer Keyshia Cole, saying, “Oh, I love Keyshia! I was in rehab with her mom.”
