Vivienne Westwood with cropped hair

Vivienne Westwood showed off her newly cropped hair yesterday


She may be 72 years old, but age hasn't stopped Vivienne Westwood from making big style statements.

As she attended a climate change protest in her local borough of Lambeth yesterday, the fashion designer took off her beanie to reveal a freshly-cropped 'do. And we love it.

Gone was the bright orange locks that Dame Viv has had for as long as anyone can remember, and in its place is her natural snow white hair.

We think she looks better than ever...
