"Every time I hear that word, I cringe. Fun! I think it's disgusting; it's just running around. It's not my idea of pleasure."

Vivienne Westwood's clothes have been described as perverse, irrelevant, and unwearable. Her creations have also been described as brilliant, subversive, and incredibly influential. Vivienne is unquestionably among the most important fashion designers of the late 20th century and beyond!

Oh, i love Vivienne Westwood's clothes!!! Her creations looks crazy sometimes but they always unusual and eye-catching.
The wedding dress she designed for Sex And The City film was amazing as was one of Carrie Bradshow's dresses - the assymentrical pink one with barely visible floral prints. And Christina Hendricks, who is a greta fan of VW, alwasys looks fantatsic in her dresses.
