WHO? Vivienne Westwood Red Label

IN A NUTSHELL: Ethereal and nymph-like, but Westwood style. These Spring/Summer styles had attitude.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: As always, Westwood's tailoring was the highlight of her collection, but the use of softer shades (pale blues and light grey), turned sharp suits on their head. This was playful power-dressing. Other favourites included boyfriend cardigans worn as belted dresses, oversized denim shirts, dropped-waist silk sun-dresses and a cherry red, cleavage-boosting, strapless gown. We also can't fail to mention the cute, leather clutches, studded with the Westwood emblem.

F-ROW: Jacquetta Wheeler, Erin O'Connor, Pamela Anderson, Paloma Faith, Sadie Frost, Tracey Emin, Kelis

VERDICT: Westwood's contrasting patterns, shapes and textures looked all the more wearable in pastel and neutral tones. Yes, the incredible hair and makeup always adds to the spectacle of the show, but each and every design screamed look at me, in its own, unique way.
