Vivienne Westwood Turns Her Models Into Cartoon Girls

Legendary punk designer Vivienne Westwood has a flair for the colorful, the dramatic, the outlandish, the shocking, the absurd… but certainly not the tame. Nor the shy, for that matter: everything Vivienne touches, from her flaming orange hair to her punk-infused collections, is intended to Make A Statement. It’s kind of her MO. For her…

Vivienne Westwood Not A Feminist, Says Women In “The Privileged World” Can’t Be A “Victim Of Society”

Jemima Khan, writing for the New Statesman in the spring, asked [Vivienne Westwood] if she was an antifeminist, so I thought I’d check out how consistent her views are: is she a feminist? She says not, because she doesn’t see why women in ‘the privileged world’ need to be. She can’t see the point of…

Vivienne Westwood Thinks We’re All Ugly

“People have never looked so ugly … We are so conformist, nobody is thinking. I’m a fashion designer and people think ‘what do I know?’ but I’m talking about all this disposable crap. So I’m saying buy less, choose well, make it last.”

Ooh Baby, It’s Cold On This Runway

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 “Froze…

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…

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…

I Want Jennifer Aniston’s Jacket

Dear Jennifer Aniston, I’m really sorry I made fun of your belly shirt last week. I was in a bad mood I guess. Anyhoo, I take it all back, because this gray jacket is perfection! Is that Vivienne Westwood Red Label? I think it is, and it’s awfully sharp how the bottoms of your Loubouti…

Vivienne Westwood Attacked By Kitty On The Catwalk

When Vivienne Westwood stepped onto the runway to take a bow after her Paris Fashion Week showing, someone in the audience threw a stuffed cat at her. Yes. For reals. It took us a second to figure out whether the projectile kitty was real or fake, so thank goodness it was just pretend. But…

Vivienne Westwood Wants You To Stop Buying Clothes

But that’s exactly what Vivienne Westwood wants you to do: stop purchasing things. She has a totally legitimate reason however, as this designer is thinking…

It’s That Time Of Year, Folks

Exciting news, guys. Fashion Weeks are upon us — it’s men’s fashion week right now, so NYC women’s ready-to-wear is right around the corner — and you know what that means. Two words, my friends: Models. Falling. Even though I’ve personally argued against laughing, there’s just no denying that there’s nothing more fascinating (not to…
