Something Different: Vivienne Westwood

Karl Lagerfeld isn’t the only one who’ll be making bold statements at Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. Dame Vivienne Westwood has unveiled a capsule collection of regal frocks in honor of Her Majesty’s 60 years on the throne. The Red Carpet collection bears the usual Westwood hallmarks—lots of drape, crinolines, an eye toward historical dress—but also takes inspiration from gowns the Queen has worn in her long reign. Still, as with the wedding of WIlliam and Kate, we’re guessing it’ll be the hats that get most of the commentary.
