Vivienne Westwood is one of most fabulous and influential designers of all time. She was born on April 8, 1941 as Vivienne Isabel Swire. She taught primary school in North London. Vivienne's first husband was Derek Westwood. She had one son with Derek, named Ben, who later became a photographer.

Vivienne met Malcolm McLaren who was a friend of her brother. Malcolm and Vivienne became friends and Malcolm faked being sick for awhile to get Vivienne to take care of him and to be near her. Malcolm McLaren was the manager for the Sex Pistols and Vivienne designed the clothing for the band. Vivienne Westwood also designed clothing for the New York Dolls and other bands. Vivienne was one of the first original designers when the punk movement started. Many of her garments are now collectibles. The V&A museum in London had an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood styles from 2004-2005.

In 1970, Malcolm and Vivienne opened a shop on 430 King's Road in London called Let It Rock. They sold clothing targeted at the London Teddy Boy scene. Vivienne designed clothing for the store. The shop eventually went through a few incarnations. In 1972, the store became Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die and featured t-shirts with provocative slogans, leather clothing, and garments with zippers and chains. In 1974, the shop transformed again. It was called Sex and featured S&M clothing. Sex became synonymous with the punk scene. Then the shop became Seditionaries. Today, Vivienne Westwood's World's End iconic boutique carries her limited edition special clothing, shoes, and accessories.

Vivienne and Malcolm's son is Joseph Corre. Joseph Corre founded the women's lingerie company Agent Provocateur and now designs his own menswear line along with Simon "Branzley" Armitage named, A Child of the Jago.

Controversy surrounds the style of Vivienne Westwood. Supermodel Naomi Campbell famously took a tumble modeling nine inch platform shoes at a 1993 Vivienne Westwood Anglomania fashion show. The incident made these shoes famous. Always pushing the envelope, Vivienne Westwood excitingly experiments with the extremes of fashion.

In 1992, Vivienne Westwood married her current husband and creative partner, Andreas Kronthaler. In the same year, Vivienne caused another controversy when she received the OBE award. She twirled in her skirt and was knicker-less! She repeated the incident again in 2006 when she met the Prince of Wales.

Vivienne has always been a caring and political person. In 2005, she teamed up with British civil rights group Liberty to launch exclusive limited design t-shirts. One reads, "I AM NOT A TERRORIST, please don't arrest me!" The other shirt reads, "Liberty - Throw Away the Key."

Vivienne Westwood collections include four women's lines: Gold Label, Red Carpet, Red Label, and Anglomania. She has a men's line appropriately titled MAN. She also has a World's End line that features her classic pieces from the Vivienne Westwood archive. Vivienne Westwood also designs a collection of bags, shoes, sunglasses, eight perfume lines, and has multitude of stores all over the world!

Runs slightly small. The way the waist is stitched makes it fit long. For the dress to lay flat I had to pull the waist below my natural waist. The top and details are so gorgeous, I was sad to return it.

This dress makes me look how I imagine I look on my best day. The fit is incredible! I’m 5’8” 150, DD and sized up for a 12. I can not stop wearing it.

These jeans are a big "no." They fit, but are not at all flattering. (I am 5'4, 120 lbs., slender, wear jeans pretty much every day.) The fabric is not appealing, nor is the cut. I have a cute/fit 50-something butt, but the positioning of the pockets gives the illusion of a much wider and not attractive derriere. I returned the jeans.

This garment arrived poorly packaged (in a jumbled ball), smelling of someone else’s perfume and with tape on the sleeve indicating a defect in the fabric. Does Zappos not have a quality control department? Items like these are simply not suitable for sale to clients.

This item arrived with someone else’s deodorant and makeup on it, balled up in the bag. Not what I would expect for the price tag.

This is very stylish. Very designer- ish. Be aware that it's a body con dress. Really hugs your stomach and probably your behind. Even though I feel that I have to wear a control panty with it, and I wish that it didn't hug me so much ( I am older), I am resolving that problem by using the stretchy material to create folds under my stomach. Bunching up the fabric there, I THINK, hides that there is a big drop off under my tummy. I love it so much- I am keeping it any way!!
