Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood Designs Uniforms For the Queen's Guards

On Our Radar: Vivienne and Stella Outfit the Queen's Guards

The Queen's guards have become quite the landmark in London. Who can miss those bright red uniforms and huge furry hats? They might look striking, but did you know that one bear has to be killed for each of their hats to be made? Tear. Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney to the rescue! Rumor has is that the two designers, in conjunction with PETA, will design cruelty-free guards uniforms for the Queen.

I wonder what lovely designs Vivienne, famous for her avant garde aesthetic, and Stella, known for using animal-free materials, will come up with. All they need is the approval from the Ministry of Defence, so let's cross our fingers.

Can't they reuse them as well? I mean, bear fur can't be that fragile.I don't like the idea of changing the style though.

I'm with wadewifey, that's a whole lot of fur. Especially when there's so many synthetic options out, and since I don't think they let tourists just run up and muss at their hats, who would know?

A whole bear for one hat??? That's nonsense, I don't like that.
