Designers Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood mingled with the art scene for the Juergen Teller opening exhibition dinner in London
The coolest of culture vultures flocked to artist, photographer and all-round troublemaker Juergen Teller’s latest exhibition, Woo, last night.
Designers Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood mingled with the likes of Jefferson Hack and Kristen McMenamy at the opening dinner for Teller’s Woo exhibition, held at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London.
Covering the provocative photographer’s extensive career, which spans over twenty years, the show includes some of his most iconic shots, including ones of Kurt Cobain, Lily Cole and Kate Moss.
The award for the most shocking image, however? That one goes to 71-year-old punk rock iconic Westwood, who courts controversy again by appearing naked with her legs wide open in a series of artistic shots.
Speaking to New York magazine about shooting the flame haired eccentric, Teller revealed how he was blown away by her beauty.
‘It was lovely,’ said Teller. ‘In her house, on a Sunday evening. I’ve worked with her a long time, and I’m always amazed at how wonderful her skin is.
‘She looks amazing and she’s, like, 70 now. She was 68 when I did the pictures … and I was just curious about how she would look naked.
‘If you think of naked pictures of old people, they’re all wrinkled – and they are not! So I like it a lot.
‘And then when she said, ‘Okay, let’s do it,’ and she was sitting there I was thinking, ‘Oh my f****** hell, man!’ I didn’t quite expect it. So that was great!’
You go, girl!
