Emmy says:
A fun glimpse into the legend that is Vivienne. Great details with the get up and go possessed by the woman and the beliefs held by her. 8/10.

Jeff says:
An intriguing look into the story of an icon of fashion. The insight into the times when she wasn’t an icon of fashion – because the establishment didn’t want to recognise her – was fascinating. There’s a lot of material covered, but there was a lack of coherence that made it hard to follow at times. This seems to be a deliberate choice (the movie is framed around Westwood not wanting to deliver a standard biography, but it was distracting. The stories, fashions, and causes were all there though – but not all that deeply, the movie could have done with being longer to spend more time fleshing out details. Worth watching though. 7/10.
