VIVIENNE WESTWOOD DEFINES THE FUTURE OF FASHION AND TRANSPORTATION

Leave it to Vivienne Westwood and her equally eccentric husband Andreas Kronthaler to come up with a timely yet outrageous Spring 2019 collection. Her quirky husband Andreas seems to be very actively involved in the current designs. At London Fashion Week Vivienne showed her models on skateboards and motorized scooters -the same scooters that are presenting difficulties in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. Obstacles will be overcome and they probably represent the future in transportation. Westwood’s designs illustrate the inevitable evolution of red carpet fashion to streetstyle-athletic inspired garments.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER KNOWS HOW TO HAVE FUN ON A RED CARPET

You can always count on Helena Bonham Carter to liven up a stuffy red carpet event. We met her on the red carpet at the Oscars back in the 90’s and immediately loved her – she was wearing an outrageous Vivienne Westwood dress and stuck out like a sore thumb among the couture gowns. Versatile Helena is most famous for playing turn of the century women in corsets, but did you know she also appeared on Miami Vice as Don Johnson’s girlfriend? Helena, 51, wore black to the BAFTA awards for the #Me Too movement (Looks like Westwood) but she couldn’t resist that sassy handbag. Watch for her next in the female version of Oceans Eleven, and Netflix’s The Crown.

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ISIS: A HIT IN THE MAKING

The Brits are making fun of those desperate young women who leave home, don burkas and are willingly recruited into the jihadi life. Not everyone thinks it’s funny, but we certainly do. A BBC comedy show featured a Saturday Night Live style sketch in the form of a video trailer called The Real Housewives of ISIS and the supposedly religious women are just as shallow and snarky as their Beverly Hills counterparts. One ISIS housewife was upset because she had nothing to wear to “the beheading.” Another bragged that her husband Ali gave her a new chain – “eight feet long – so I can almost get outside, which is great!” She is shown chained to her stove. Vivienne Westwood also sees the humor in these delusional women – the outfit above is included in her latest collection. We want MORE! Are you listening, Saturday night Live? Bravo?

Vivienne Westwood has always been one of our favorite designers, and her latest menswear collection is as entertaining as ever. Her shows are always extravagant and make you wonder who is going to WEAR these looks. It so happens Ewan McGregor, rapper Common, and Gavin Rossdale, among many other celebrities, ALL wear Westwood. There are always a large number of highly wearable pieces and beautiful plaid suits for a man with a little courage and imagination.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER DOES IT AGAIN

#helenabonhamcarter #darkshadows

The best thing about “Dark Shadows“ was Helena Bonham Carter’s outfit at the premier. We happen to be huge fans of Helena’s eccentric and original style, and LOVED her Vivienne Westwood dress. More than we loved the movie, in fact. Bonham’s husband strong>Tim Burton’s film was definitely aimed at kids and the whole thing was just plain silly. But it was saved by the 1972 period costumes, hair, sets, and appealing music. Had this movie been set in modern times it might have been intolerable.

BOY GEORGE THINKS HE CAN OUT-JUDGE AND OUT-DRESS SIMON COWELL

Boy George showed up at Vivienne Westwood’s London Fashion Week show dressed within his physical and financial limits. George is trying to angle a job as a judge on a talent competition like “The X Factor,” but he wants a very large budget for his wardrobe. He brought a friend dressed in head to toe latex and we’re not sure if it’s a male or female. We’re guessing male.

FINAL DRAMATIC FAREWELL TO MALCOLM MCLAREN, THE ARCHITECT OF PUNK

Subversive punk icon Malcolm McLaren was laid to rest in the flamboyant style he’d grown accustomed to. “Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die,” the slogan from his “Sex” shop, was written on his casket. The funeral procession was led by a horse drawn carriage, and paraded through the home of the punk movement, Camden, in north-west London. Thousands of people lined the streets. Mourners included the remaining Sex Pistols, tarted up Adam Ant, and McLaren’s muse Vivienne Westwood. Westwood wants McLaren to be remembered as an inspiration to the new generation – she advised them to “Get a life – and do something with it!”

MALCOLM MCLAREN WAS THE ARCHITECT OF PUNK


We can’t let the passing of Malcolm McLaren go by without recognizing his immense cultural influence on both fashion and music. This “architect of punk” gave us The Sex Pistols and revolutionized the disco driven 70’s. In 1971 he opened his “Sex” shop on Kings Road with his then-girlfriend Vivienne Westwood and it became a magnet for style obsessed young people everywhere. On our first trip to London, that store was the first stop and it was amazing. (It was rumored that a girl had recently given herself an abortion in the dressing room with a coat hangar.) Bondage gear, red plaid suits, safety pin jewelry, and ripped insult t shirts. Malcolm and Vivienne changed fashion forever and inspired generations of designers to come. We wish we had saved a bondage jacket or seditionary t shirt – they’re worth thousands now.

Pamela Anderson is in London performing onstage as the Genie in “Aladdin” and this is how she was dressed as she left a London club at 3 AM. It appears she’s been getting some fashion tips from her friend Vivienne Westwood and the veiled hat is rather sexy and flattering. It’s refreshing to see Pamela dressing up and looking stylish.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
