I’m late, apologies, but I couldn’t let Dame Vivienne Westwood’s seventieth birthday, which was April 8, pass without commemoration. The Wall Street Journal gave us a fun glimpse into her world as she celebrated the opening of her first United States store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles (not NYC!).
One of the best quotes from the WSJ piece:
I think men are much more insecure than women. In history, women had an awful lot more power and influence, from Greek prostitutes to the women who ran the salons right up until the first World War. I think that feminists have definitely underestimated the role that women have had historically. I think I would be insecure if I were to be a man; there’s so much pressure on you.
And as a married lady myself I rather enjoyed this comment:
The secret to a good marriage is tolerance. Don’t expect anything. I’m quite secure in my marriage. I could be wrong; if I am, I don’t really care, actually, because I am so committed to this relationship.
Funny I feel exactly the same way.
