Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News, Sales, Women, Jeans,

Vivienne Westwood is creating a denim line!

The legendary fashion designer will collaborate with Lee to release The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee collection next autumn through Vivienne Westwood boutiques and selected retailers. According to reports, the collection will include superskinny jeans, microshorts and bondage jeans in a range of washes from indigo denim to metallic gold- and copper-colored denim.

Carlo D’Amario, the managing director of Vivienne Westwood, told WWD, “It is very important for us to work with a denim brand like Lee with such a strong heritage.”

The collection will retail from $128 to $320. Meanwhile, the designer is delighted with the results of her wallpaper collaboration with Cole & Son, which features iconic prints and patterns she has used throughout her career.

“It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media. This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper.” The wallpaper is available from Liberty, John Lewis and Heal’s.

Kate Moss Saved Money on Make-Up

Kate Moss in Calvin Klein's Obsession campaignApparently make-up artists need to save money, too—Kate Moss wore only moisturizer for a Calvin Klein photo shoot to save money.

Renowned makeup artist Kay Montano has revealed that she only used a lightweight base on the supermodel when preparing her skin for a perfume campaign in the late ‘90s because she had been urged to be frugal by bosses.

“Yes, the recession came and after that fashion and beauty became rather more pared down. One of my first jobs after moving to New York was to make up Kate Moss for the Calvin Klein Obsession fragrance campaign, and I just used moisturizer. She looked absolutely perfect.”

Kay, who has worked on London Fashion Week since it began 25 years ago, made a name for herself as the woman behind the dramatic make-up of the ‘80s. The British beauty expert said that her trademark smokey eyes were inspired by many of the decade’s biggest stars.

“My icons were women like Debbie Harry, make-up artist Barbara Daly—who did all of the Stanley Kubrik films—Jerry Hall and a makeup artist called Yvonne Gold. Yvonne had big, blonde dreadlocks and worked with Vivienne Westwood and her partner Malcolm McLaren who at the time had a new-wave band Bow Wow Wow. A signature technique of hers was to use gold paint over the Cupid’s bow, which makeup artist Pat McGrath uses a lot now.”

Pam Anderson poses alongside Vivienne Westwood and her husband Andreas Kronthaler for the designer’s Gold Label collection.

In a myriad of colors, fabrics, and patterns that is so very Vivienne, the trio playfully present the line in a non-typical ad campaign fashion (check out more pictures after the jump).

This will be the second time Westwood picked Anderson to promote her line—last season, the Playboy cover girl walked the Milan and London catwalks on top of fronting the Spring/Season campaign.

Maggie Gyllenhaal models for Agent Provocateur

Maggie Gyllenhaal “mentally disconnected” when she agreed to model underwear for Agent Provocateur.

The Hollywood actress couldn’t believe she was fronting the raunchy campaign for the French lingerie company so soon after giving birth to her daughter: “I never think of it as modeling—it is just like playing a character. I mentally disconnected when I agreed to the Agent Provocateur campaign. Then, suddenly, I’m in my underwear on top of a piano adjusting my garter belt for a picture, having just had a baby. I thought, ‘What? How did I end up here?’”
