Celebration of Vivienne Westwood’s 80th Birthday,
In the course of her long career Dame Vivienne Westwood, 80 on April 8, 2021, has gifted us not only with unforgettable runway experiences.The mother of punk, Westwood has little patience for propriety or prudery, as evidenced by a famous picture in which she’s joined by Chrissie Hynde and shopgirl Jordan. All are standing with their backs to the camera, their bottoms painted with letters spelling out the name of the designer’s boutique, which in 1977, was called Sex. Fast forward 43 years and there’s Westwood showing lots of leg and exposing her pull-up stockings, this time without garters, in the spring 2021 lookbook for the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood collection.
