What's going on backstage at Vivienne Westwood RIGHT NOW!

Vivienne Westwood AW 09

Pamela Anderson is in hair and make-up!! Phew... it was a close call. The former pin-up turned Westwood muse was still at The Dorchester hotel in London last night waiting for some sample boots to be biked to her from, er, well Grazia actually! But luckily Pammie made it there in time - after all the rest of the models were cast with her in mind - and is very calmly being prepped by three people resplendent in white. Dame Viv meanwhile is being interviewed by - get this - Mickey from Eastenders (no, we can't figure out the back story behind this either!). Tan belts and hats fill the tables. The snippets we can see of the collection are covered in sequins. Oh, and looking at the seating plan the Princess of Thailand is in the front row. Crazy! More soon...

UPDATE: We've discovered what Mickey was doing chatting to Vivienne. He's doing a show for Living where he follows Pamela around for a week. Good week to use, Mickey! This show is a total homage to Pammie: the make-up is harking back to her full-on smokey eyes in the 1980s/90s. Navy, shimmery and just gorgeous. Not so sure about the shoes though. Full on platforms which might cause the models some problems on the very steep marble steps.

More pictures below too...
