Vivienne Westwood: saving the planet in a swimsuit

Photo: David Ellis.

Forget Helen Mirren in her sassy red bikini, how fabulous does 71-year-old Dame Vivienne Westwood look in her classic black one-piece? The iconic designer is featured in The Times magazine today on a trip to save the Amazon rainforest with the charity Cool Earth.

The cover portrait by Zac Frackleton is pretty special too.

She and Grace Coddington are so amazing and have so NOT thrown in the towel. It's interesting that she's latched on to something so completely the opposite of the throw away world of fashion. But then her clothes are eternal.

Both photos are gorgeous and inspirational. Vivienne is leading the way for those of us about to cross over into the 70's.
