Lily Cole opens Vivienne Westwood show with solo dance

Lily Cole stunned fashionistas as she opened the Vivienne Westwood show with a solo dance in silence.

Wearing a Grecian-inspired, draped gown and bathed in a pool of red, Lily looked stunning as she performed the interpretive dance.

Speaking backstage, Vivienne said the performance was a "metaphor" for her climate change concerns – a theme that ran through the show. "I just use fashion as an excuse to talk about politics," she said. "Because I'm a fashion designer, it gives me a voice, which is really good."

The collection, with its collarless shirts tucked into high-waisted, paper bag shorts and stunning brocade dressed paired with 'climate' emblazoned tshirts was also a talking point.
