Wake up, cave girl!


Vivienne Westwood's latest has provoked all the usual suspects; slogans and cave girl ideology did the trick. Quite where triumphant Flea-ish hats fit into the picture escapes me for the moment but I am certain I will come up with something.

"It's a political message. The cave girl has just opened her eyes and doesn't know human beings yet," Westwood said backstage ahead of her show, as make-up artists were applying thick layers of silver-sparkle eye shadow to models' faces.

"She doesn't know that human beings have a choice. They can become cultivated ... or become animals that destroy. We have become animals that destroy. The message is that there is no progress without culture," the red-headed Westwood said.

Small aside: Who writes this stuff? I would like to point out I was interviewed and turned down for an Entertainment Reporter position for a major daily newspaper just over a year ago now; I suspect I could do better than "the red-headed Westwood".

In related news, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano have activated their wonder twin powers to form IQONS, reportedly intended to be a MySpace for the fashion industry. The Flea's Château de Mauvais Goût label may soon have a home...

The sun did not shine
It was too wet to play
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold wet day


Now look what you did
Said the fish to the cat
Now look at this *Hat*
Look at this! Look at that!
