Vivienne Westwood Dreams of Earth-Loving Nymphs
There was no mistaking the season on the Vivienne Westwood Spring 2014 runway. Each model was depicted as a woodland nymph or Earth-loving fairy; their faces were splattered with brown and gold paint as if there had just been a romp on the forest floor. The lips were burnished with brown lipstick, and a dark contour was added on the cheeks for a sun-kissed glow. The hair was styled in a classic bouffant with tendrils around the nape, and some models wore wreaths or floral barrettes. We're accustomed to extravagant costumes on the Westwood runway, and this season the theme was straight out of a Greek poem.
