Late feb, the queen of punk, Vivienne Westwood gave London style setters their first LFW treat, in honour of her new collection of Palladium jewellery.
The 'Get a Life' party was held in the Wallace Collection, a place which holds the inspirational key to many of her past and present collections (situated in Machester Square).
As expected, the fashion glitterati attended, eager to share a glass of bubbly with Westwood. Which is exactly what was in store for them - the fashion-forward guests were given the opportunity to gaze at the artwork held within the museum while feasting on champagne and oysters.
Attendees noted that Westwood's new jewellery collection has very strong pagan influences. The acorn tiara and brooches remind me of childhood fantasies of when I used to imagine fairies drinking tea from acorn cups... Perhaps good old Viv was going for that look (ha).
Naturally, the fashion crowd were attracted to this event, key guests included Lily Cole, Josephine de la Baume and Christina Hendricks.
Since the show, the Mad Men star (Hendricks) has revealed her most fashionable role yet, as she is set to be the face of the jewellery collection of which the event was in aid of. Christina said (of the collaboration with Vivienne) that, "It was a great honour for me to be asked to represent the 'Get a Life' Palladium Jewellery collection. I admire that Vivienne uses her designs to inspire change and the pieces are just so wonderful. The pieces really sparkle under the lights and I cannot wait to wear them on the red carpet".
*The Vivienne Westwod 'Get a Life' Palladium Jewellery collection will be available in Westwood's boutiques across London from March 2011, we await with baited breath!
