LFW Spring 2012: Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Today's Vivienne Westwood Red Labelshow was a relatively subdued affair. Emphasis on relatively: Per usual, the collection featured feral hair and makeup, and a grab bag of looks. It also closed with ZZ Top's "Gimme All Your Lovin'" and the charming sight of model Eliza Cummings, in a strapless red ball gown, picking up the tiny Charlotte Free and carrying her down the catwalk, as Free was struggling in her shoes. Too often it goes without saying that Westwood wants everyone—models included—to have fun at her shows, and in her clothes. Well, good on her for that.
