Vivienne Westwood Gets A FiFi-------
Last night, Vivienne Westwood was bestowed a prestigious award that most beauty legends would kill for—let alone a fashion icon who dabbles in perfumes and powders. Inducted into the Circle of Champions by the Fragrance Foundation, Westwood was honored at an industry-only affair at Claridge’s Hotel in London for making “notable and newsworthy contributions to the fragrance industry,” according to an article from Cosmetics Business. Following in the footsteps of fellow Brit Paul Smith, who won the award last year, Westwood was selected for an ability to continually create fragrances “evocative of decades gone by,” including Boudoir in 1998, Libertine in 2000, Anglomania in 2004, and Boudoir Sin Garden and Let It Rock in 2007. Her personal perfume strides have been noteworthy, for sure, and there’s also the fact that she produced Joe Corre, co-founder of Agent Provocateur, the brand that took home last year’s FiFi for best women’s prestige fragrance. A good nose apparently runs in the family.
