Vivienne Westwood Red Label - London Fall 2009
(LONDON) This season, class was in session for Dame Viv. Vivienne Westwood Red Label was an homage to the rebellious school girl who has a strong sense of personal style. Marching to the beats of a techno-fied version of The Nutcracker, the likes of Daisy Lowe, Alice Dellal and Jo Wood (ex- wife of Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood and founder of Jo Wood Organics) stomped down the runway in figure-hugging dresses in autumnal hues, slim-cut trouser suits, knee-highs, woollen leggings paired with lots of layering, and prep-school blazers. Prints included lots of stripes and plaids. We loved the occasional buccaneer hat, the hooded poncho jacket and the thigh-high Pretty Woman boots (worn by a model with matching Julia Roberts reddish curls). Front-rowers included Kanye West, British comedian David Walliams, and Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts (who was supposed to be fronting the Westwood campaign that now features Pamela Anderson). Roberts told us what she used to do as a rebellious schoolgirl. "My friends and I used to set off the fire alarm at school so we could get out of math class," she laughed. Westwood would be proud.
