Ooh Baby, It’s Cold On This Runway

Men In Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are the downfall of the American man, apparently. Read More »

God bless Vivienne Westwood: Her Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show put a chill on the faces of the poor male models sent down the runway. The boys were forced to wear fake — and in some cases, real — icicle beards. The look was apparently an homage to British naturalist David Attenborough and his documentary “Frozen Planet.” Either way, those are some deliciously frosty snowmen. [Telegraph UK]

Vivienne Westwood Isn’t Fond of Kate Middleton’s Style, Either

“I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton. But I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style…I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up! The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none. … Let me put it this way. It seems to me, that her image is ‘ordinary woman.’ Therefore, high street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.”

–Punk designer Vivienne Westwood, on her disdain for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s style, or lack thereof. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Trashes NYC, Loves LA

“I don’t actually like New York … New York people are a bit stuck up and self important, and think that just the fact that they live in New York makes them better than anybody else. Sometimes there, you feel trapped by the concrete, and for me that means being trapped by the myth of Superman and American foreign policy and all these dreadful things that have done so much harm in the world. There’s just so much pressure there; it’s not nice.”

–Designer Vivienne Westwood speaks to W magazine about her decision to open her first stateside boutique in LA, rather than NYC. Now, Westwood has made some valid points about NYC (and its inhabitants), but I found some of her critiques to apply LA residents also, especially the part about self-importance. But I guess the beautiful Cali weather makes up for that. Of course, this isn’t really a battle of which city is better … I’d prefer LA to NYC right about now, too. [The Cut] Keep reading »

You’ve Got A Little Something … There, And, Um, All Over

At her London presentation, Vivienne Westwood sent her models down the runway with swipes of blue and green face paint. Either that, or things got a bit messy at the backstage arts and crafts table. Keep reading »

Check Out Vivienne Westwood’s £1,000 Charity Table Cloths

Vivienne Westwood, queen of girly grunge, wants to take over your dinner table. How else can we explain the 20 one-of-a-kind tablecloths she’s created for the charity Cool Earth? The designers — like the oh-so-Westwood one at left — were culled from past and current Westwood collections, then transferred onto tablecloths, with Westwood herself hand-signing ones for a limited time. The custom cloths cost £1,000 each, so we won’t be buying any, but props to those who do, as they’ll be supporting the worthy cause of preventing deforestation. More designs after the jump.
