Vivienne Westwood and Cartoon Faces

Legendary punk designer Vivienne Westwood has a flair for the colourful, the dramatic, the outlandish, the shocking, the absurd… but certainly not the tame. Nor the shy, for that matter everything Vivienne touches, from her flaming orange hair to her punk-infused collections, is intended to MAKE A STATEMENT. It seems to be her mission objective.

For her latest venture, the Autum 2013 show for her eponymous Red Label, at London Fashion Week, the British visionary sent models down the runway in what would be best described as… cartoon or comic makeup. Saturated primary colours, exaggerated outlines done in start black or white, and blanked out faces with airbrushed nails which resulted in a look that was very unique. This is a Look with a capital “L” that should not be attemped off the catwalk, but as for on it? It was a hit – and it provided the perfect foil for Vivienne’s soft metallics and loose, lovely grunge-girl knits.
