Vivienne Westwood is one of most fabulous and influential designers of all time. She was born on April 8, 1941 as Vivienne Isabel Swire. She taught primary school in North London. Vivienne's first husband was Derek Westwood. She had one son with Derek, named Ben, who later became a photographer.

Vivienne met Malcolm McLaren who was a friend of her brother. Malcolm and Vivienne became friends and Malcolm faked being sick for awhile to get Vivienne to take care of him and to be near her. Malcolm McLaren was the manager for the Sex Pistols and Vivienne designed the clothing for the band. Vivienne Westwood also designed clothing for the New York Dolls and other bands. Vivienne was one of the first original designers when the punk movement started. Many of her garments are now collectibles. The V&A museum in London had an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood styles from 2004-2005.

In 1970, Malcolm and Vivienne opened a shop on 430 King's Road in London called Let It Rock. They sold clothing targeted at the London Teddy Boy scene. Vivienne designed clothing for the store. The shop eventually went through a few incarnations. In 1972, the store became Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die and featured t-shirts with provocative slogans, leather clothing, and garments with zippers and chains. In 1974, the shop transformed again. It was called Sex and featured S&M clothing. Sex became synonymous with the punk scene. Then the shop became Seditionaries. Today, Vivienne Westwood's World's End iconic boutique carries her limited edition special clothing, shoes, and accessories.

Vivienne and Malcolm's son is Joseph Corre. Joseph Corre founded the women's lingerie company Agent Provocateur and now designs his own menswear line along with Simon "Branzley" Armitage named, A Child of the Jago.

Controversy surrounds the style of Vivienne Westwood. Supermodel Naomi Campbell famously took a tumble modeling nine inch platform shoes at a 1993 Vivienne Westwood Anglomania fashion show. The incident made these shoes famous. Always pushing the envelope, Vivienne Westwood excitingly experiments with the extremes of fashion.

In 1992, Vivienne Westwood married her current husband and creative partner, Andreas Kronthaler. In the same year, Vivienne caused another controversy when she received the OBE award. She twirled in her skirt and was knicker-less! She repeated the incident again in 2006 when she met the Prince of Wales.

Vivienne has always been a caring and political person. In 2005, she teamed up with British civil rights group Liberty to launch exclusive limited design t-shirts. One reads, "I AM NOT A TERRORIST, please don't arrest me!" The other shirt reads, "Liberty - Throw Away the Key."

Vivienne Westwood collections include four women's lines: Gold Label, Red Carpet, Red Label, and Anglomania. She has a men's line appropriately titled MAN. She also has a World's End line that features her classic pieces from the Vivienne Westwood archive. Vivienne Westwood also designs a collection of bags, shoes, sunglasses, eight perfume lines, and has multitude of stores all over the world!

"You have a much better life if you wear impressive clothes." - Vivienne Westwood.

Great shoe, great fit, however...what on Earth is the smell? The shoes smell so strongly of talc that they have to be stored in the garage! Anyone have the same issue? I may have to return them because right now they are being stored in the garage.

Gorgeous shoes. Order 1/2 size larger due to height. Steep angle.

I'm usually pretty consistent with shoes and wear a 7.5 regardless of they're sneakers, heels...I ordered up to an 8 based on the prior reviews and they were way too big. I even added some inserts in the back and extra pads for the balls of my feet and they were slipping. I could put my index finger between my heel and the back of the shoe. The material is pretty flexible so I think they'll give after some time. I returned them and am waiting for the 7.

Love these shoes! I bought them for my "something blue" for my upcoming wedding. They are very comfortable. I usually wear a 6.5 wide so I bought size 7 just in case and the fit is perfect due to the height. The shoe hugs your foot well. The sides of the toe box are supple enough to allow for comfort but still structured enough to stay on.

This shoe is stylish and quite comfortable. It is true it has a strange smell, but that is because of its unique flexible material. The inside of the shoe is nicely lined with moderate padding. I had trouble knowing what size to get from the prior reviews (there are no half sizes up, just whole sizes). I ordered my true size, and it did feel 1/2 a size too small. So I had to order the whole size up, as there are no halves, and that's rather big! I will keep the bigger size though, and purchase some shoe pads to stuff inside. It's a shame they didn't make this shoe in half sizes, because I really like them!
