Life and Death of a Bad Ass

Standard

Excuse my language, but there’s really no other word to describe the late designer Vivienne Westwood.

Last week the world lost another great force in fashion.

Westwood has never been one to follow the rules.

In fact, she made her own rules most of the time.

Today I want to take a look at some of her designs that stood out to me the most.

This look from ‘93 has always appealed to me.

Mixing fur with tartan plaid just works! Who would have thought?

Tartan has always played a big part in her designs.

Speaking of mixing textures…

Unfinished hems, satin with argyle and giant rosettes on boots just scream ‘Vivienne Westwood’!

Who can forget the time Harry Styles was on the cover of Rolling Stone wearing this cotton candy feather cloud creation?

One of the most recent, iconic Vivienne Westwood looks was this hat that Pharrell Williams wore to the 56th Grammy Awards.

I Do:

Dita Von Teese wore a purple Westwood wedding gown for her formal wedding ceremony when she married Marilyn Manson in 2005.

The purple was daring and most definitely Dita.

Of course at the top of my list is the Wedding gown Carrie wore when Big left her at the altar.

The world will mourn this talented designer, and we will always remember that she was, most definitely, a BAD ASS.
