This event seems like the very best time to trot out that Vivienne Westwood dress that looks very slightly as if its former life involved being an awesome set of curtains in a very rich man’s very over-the-top library, until it decided to mate with a can-can girl and run off to New York to make its fortune. (That’s a compliment: I love libraries, New York, the can-can, AND fortunes.)
