Queen paved the way for every high-haired metal band and their music continues to be influential. Their campy theatrical approach to live performance and music videos have inspired bands and fans alike.

The band enjoyed mass success worldwide, but they often found themselves uncomfortable with the adoration. This discomfort may have contributed to their lack of critical acceptance, especially from the media.

Vivienne Westwood & Malcom McLaren’s “God Save the Queen” T-shirt
The Vivienne Westwood name is synonymous with the punk movement. The designer, who celebrated her 80th birthday in April, has had a tumultuous yet prolific career spanning half a century. She has been described as “terrible, vivacious, and rock’n’roll” by the New York Times and has a reputation for revolutionizing the fashion of her era.

Vivienne Westwood, who was born Vivienne Isabel Swire, started her career as an art teacher. When Malcolm McLaren persuaded her to leave her teaching job and join him at his Chelsea boutique Let It Rock, it was a radical move for both. Despite having no design training, she proved to be an adept designer and the pair grew to become a force to reckon with.

As a punk, Westwood was interested in breaking taboos and creating controversy with her designs. She took on political causes, and was a supporter of the anti-Vietnam war protesters. She also used Nazi symbols and sexual references in her work. Her 1977 God Save the Queen t-shirt was a bold graphic created in collaboration with McLaren and Reid that depicted a reworked image of Cecil Beaton’s portrait of the queen. It featured the queen’s mouth shut with a safety pin—an iconic accessory for Punks—and the words “God Save the Queen” and “She Ain’t No Human Being” surrounding her face.

During her heyday, in the 90’s, Westwood made her mark with voluminous skirts and dresses that were inspired by historical inspirations. She even brought out outdoor corsets that were modeled after the costumes of Marie Antoinette, which surprised many of her critics. Eventually, she became more jaded on the punk movement, telling The Guardian in 2011 that “It was just a fashion that became a marketing opportunity for people.” In this time, Westwood began focusing on environmental activism and promoting her ethical brand. She has since partnered with Greenpeace to protest against fracking in England.
