Vivienne Westwood's 'Gold Label' metallic paillette evening gown in The Darnell Collection

As part of the Autumn/Winter 2011/12 campaign, Vivienne Westwood sent down a catwalk, glittering with gold sparkles, her Red and Gold Collection, dedicated to the idea of the "World Wide Women" for which she chose compelling and strong women as her muses. 
A very appropriate message in the year of her 70th birthday.

She said: "Fashion is global, influence comes from everywhere in the world. You can wear anything in our part of the world. Anything goes". 

Her show-stealing, gold paillette-encrusted gown 
looked as stunning in the sumptuous setting at Darley's Restaurant, at the luxury hotel Lilianfels in the Blue Mountains of Australia, as it did on the catwalk at London.
