Style icon: Dame Vivienne Westwood

Viv westwoodface2  

Vivienne Westwood and Madonna both consider themselves style queens, but where Madonna is trying to hold back the years by constantly referencing how young she looks, the original Ms Westwood is attempting to forge a new path for older women.


At 66 she is doing something really new with how woman can approach dressing in their later years. Her unique eye scoffs at the notion of desperate face lifts, gym-forced bodies and predictable flesh-flashing and challenges us to wear sky high stilettos (white ones too!) and curvaceous crinnies with a massive dose of attitude.


So which look gets your vote? The make-believe world of Madge and her chemical/surgical transformations? Or the wildly ground breaking Viv and her refusal to conform?


We know who we’d rather spend a night at the pub with.
