Vivienne Westwood and Isabella Blow prove eccentric English ladies take the cake-Fashiontribes Fashion Blog

I only pray I age this gracefully. 
Maybe it's something in the blood of the kooky English woman, but every time I see Vivienne Westwood, I can't help but be in awe of a woman of her age who teeters around in the clothing and shoes she does.  While I feel the boyfriend-less than half of her age- veers slightly towards creepy, the woman strikes you with euphoric glee.  Her style, though madcap , is always impeccable for her genre.

Speaking of impeccable for her genre, Hello Isabella Blow!  Talk about a woman with presence.  No matter where you see her, she always looks young and totally irreverent.  Somehow, someway, she made totally inane hats and crazy clothes become so desirable, it seems any woman could pull them off.  Any woman couldn't, of course, because then the Isabella's of the world would have no purpose.  But sometimes I yearn for a hat made of a banana or something....
