WestwoodLeaks? Dame Viv’s Son Taps Julian Assange to Walk the Runway

-------

Julian AssangeGlobally notorious towhead journalist…and catwalk star? Julian Assange will be hitting the runway at London’s Ecuadorean Embassy (where he has been granted asylum) come London fashion week in September. The stunt is a move by Dame Vivienne’s son Ben Westwood to “highlight Julian Assange’s plight.” The WikiLeaks founder will don pieces inspired by another outlaw, Clint Eastwood, in some of his most famous spaghetti Westerns. George Clooney and fiancée Amal Alamuddin (who has represented Assange) have reportedly both received invites, the Daily Mail reports. Westwood enigmatically added that guests can also expect “another garment with a Julian Assange print.” Tantalizing.
