As we heard the news that Anna Wintour is reported to have requested the removal of a 40ft naked sculpture of designers Dame Vivienne Westwood from the Met Ball space we have to admit to being slightly heartbroken at missing out on the chance to see a 40ft. Dame Westwood au naturel.
The furore got us thinking about the designer’s many brushes with controversy and in celebration of the woman who is keeping the flames of fashion fury burning, we decided to dedicate the gallery above to Vivienne Westwood’s most polarising moments. Long live punk and long live Vivienne Westwood! Click, click, click!
