Celebrities from home and abroad have expressed their sadness over the death of British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood. She died yesterday at the age of 81. “You were the sun for the world of fashion and for all humanity,” writes the top model Bella Hadid.
“From the first time I met you to the last time I saw you, you made me laugh, listen, learn and love more than the day before,” continues Hadid, who is grateful to have lived in “her universe.” ‘For the coolest, funniest, most amazing, humble and creative, tough, smart, damned wonderful human being who once walked the earth, my inspiration and idol in all areas: rest in love and rest in peace.’
Singer Annie Lennox also praises Westwood as an activist; she campaigned against climate change, among other things. “Her life force from her was beyond comprehension,” she writes. “She was 18 years old instead of 81 years old. A formidable force of nature, intrepid, that she turned everything upside down, inside out and inside out, literally and figuratively. (…) She hasn’t left, she’s just somewhere else.’
