Vivienne Westwood on THAT Pamela Anderson shoot

18 December 2008


If Pamela Anderson spilling about Vivienne and her husband Andreas decamping to her house for two days to shoot the S/S '09 campaign images wasn't enough to whet your appetite, now the designer herself has filled us in on the back story. Vivienne confirmed last night that Juergen Teller has shot the three of them in and around Pamela's trailer in Malibu for a campaign that is ‘full of humour'. Pamela has apparently worn Westwood for years but the two had never actually met - until Vivienne's Red Label show at London Fashion Week last September. The actress and glamour model was wearing a Westwood gold lurex dress and, after meeting backstage at the show, Vivienne remarked how stunning she looked. When thinking of casting her next campaign, Vivienne apparently immediately thought of Pamela and called to ask if she would be interested. She agreed on the spot. As you would if your defining fashion moment so far had been a cut-away red swimsuit. (As an aside, can we also make a quick remark on how instantly campaign stars seem to be decided, these days. Marc Jacobs' BlackBerry is to thank for those Madonna for Louis Vuitton shots and now we've got Vivienne Westwood's mobile phone... The wonders of modern technology, eh?).
