Philip Hensher: What would we do without Dame Viv?

The developing depression in the global economy is having many disastrous effects. But surely one of the lesser ones is that the inhabitants of Moscow are no longer going to be able to buy the mini-crini, the ripped pirate-style jacket, the safety-pinned T-shirt or any other of Vivienne Westwood's creations.

Fashion: Down and out in NYC

Fall fashion normally refers to the season, but last week’s Hervé Léger show in New York was more pratfall than catwalk. Up-and-coming models Monica ‘Jac’ Jagaciak and Karolin Wolter fell, and many more slipped, as they stalked down the slick wooden runway, but they clambered back on to their six-inch spike heels to applause. Designer Max Azria was upbeat: “I don’t care! If people talk about that instead of the clothes, that would be ridiculous.”

At the Financial Times party in Kensington Palace Gardens, Alistair Darling mingled with female performers dressed as flamingos on pink stilts.

Philip Hensher: Britain, 2008... it's our statues that will tell all

As artistic projects go, this one falls squarely into the category of the bizarre. Does it really need to be made? Perhaps the mere proposal, in an age of the conceptual, is enough to constitute a work of art. Anyway, after the Angel of the North and the proposed Giant White Horse for Kent, this one might have been foreseen. Be afraid: here comes the Colossal Naomi Campbell.
