Who She Is: British fashion designer.
Why She's an Awesome Weirdo: She's the woman who basically created the term punk rock, okay? Also, her fashions are incredible. Also, rather than grow old and turn into a dotty old lady, Westwood has only gotten more outrageous. In 2007, she created the Active Resistance to Propaganda, a manifesto urging people to resist consumerist culture and cultivate a belief in art.
