If there's a designer that punks, you, and the Queen Mother could all agree on, it's Vivienne Westwood. Mixing avant-garde sensibilities with tried-and-true silhouettes, her pieces have the uncanny ability to make you look way cooler and way hotter than you ever thought you could.
A designer who never shies away from unconventional touches like mosquito-netting veils, glued-on tears, Kim Mathers-style lipliner, and go-go boots only fit for Louis XIV, Vivienne Westwood blew us away, yet again. Her fall '12 collection was an extension of her opulence-on-acid look, but you have to really see it to understand. So click through to see the parade of amazing oddball looks captured from Paris Fashion Week.
