Vivienne Westwood

I usually avoid Dazed and Confused magazine as it's a bit dry and "arty" for my taste, but I had to pick up the latest one, which was guest edited by Vivienne Westwood. Although I have just gotten over an unhealthy obsession with her pirate boots, I wouldn't use her designs to reflect my personal style. I haven't actually forced myself to read the issue yet (even with collaboration D&C just isn't for me), but I have looked at the pictures... a satisfying set featuring a cracked-out cavewoman Alice in Wonderland and sideshow friends.

This last one makes me feel sick, but I'm sure V.W., like any avante-garde artist, would be pleased to have provoked a dramatic response.
