Vivienne Westwood was predictably spectacular when she appeared last Friday on Jonathan Ross’ BBC1 TV show to talk about climate change. She swept in wearing a gown made of 7 meters of lightweight silk duchess satin cinched with a belt, and Ross had to help her fling her train dramatically across the couch.
“This dress is really 7 metres of fabric,” she said of her ensemble. “It’s got a label on it, so there we are.”
During the course of the interview she and said the best-dressed people are over 70, clothes look better over time if you never wash them, and that people should wear tablecloths and towels and only spend money on things that are truly excellent, like Vivienne Westwood.
