I love Vivienne Westwood, I really do.

From the Sex shop on King's Road to her pirate collection to Carrie Bradshaw's wedding dress, but when I was sitting in a cab last night on the way to her show reading her invitation, which listed statistics on hunger, women, babies and climate change and flipped it over to see in fine red print, "This print is available on tees at all Vivienne Westwood boutiques," without a mention of to whom or where the money went, was exasperating.

Especially when coupled with the silver Sigg water bottles on every seat. Westwood decorated them and their red tags declaring their symbolic stance against the plastic water bottles usually found at fashion shows (no mention of the Vitamin waters at her SS10 show). But half the shoes she showed were plastic, and each head of model hair must've taken an entire bottle of aerosol hairspray.

So while the clothes were cute (we'll save gorgeous for Gold Label), the spectacle was just annoying.
