VIVIENNE WESTWOOD JOINS 'OCCUPY' MOVEMENT
An enthusiastic Dame Vivienne Westwood was at the Occupy London protests again this weekend, this time addressing 400 protesters outside St Paul's Cathedral. 'What you're doing, I think it's wonderful,' she told them. The 70-year-old later went on to discuss her concerns over climate change, an issue that she frequently uses her collections and campaigns to address.                         Occupy London Stock Exchange spokeswoman Naomi Colvin was particularly excited by the Dame's participation- she told the Evening Standard, "Vivienne Westwood is a great British icon and it's brilliant that she wants to contribute."
