The name Jordan conjures up one image, for most: the artist now known as Katie Price. An artificial re-engineering of our contemporary ideal of woman. For me, it conjures up another Jordan, whose artifice again helped reshape views of femininity, albeit in a very different way.

FASHION & PERVERSITY: A Life of Vivienne Westwood by Fred Vermorel, Bloomsbury pounds 16.99
Thursday 18 August 1994
Catherine Deneuve and David Bailey are back together . . . on video, at least. Back in the Sixties (when it was cool to be married for five minutes) Catherine was, briefly, Mrs Bailey.

Bailey has included footage from their wedding, including a sighting of a youthful Mick Jagger, in the video.
