Fashion icon Dame Vivienne Westwood dead at 81: Tributes flood in for the pioneering punk designer who helped craft the look of the 1970s, as she passes away 'peacefully' in London
Dame Vivienne Westwood, the godmother of punk who changed the fashion world forever, has died at the age of 81. The 'undisputed Queen of British fashion' died peacefully surrounded by her family in Clapham, South London, her fashion house revealed yesterday. Dame Vivienne was one of the most influential British fashion designers of the 20th century, cultivating the punk rock movement with her unapologetically political designs. As the person who dressed the Sex Pistols, Dame Vivienne was synonymous with 1970s punk rock, a rebel spirit that stuck with her throughout her career including going commando when receiving her OBE from the Queen. Incredibly her career began when she was a primary school teacher, making jewellery and then dresses in her spare time after marrying Hoover engineer Derek Westwood. Her life changed when she met and married second husband Malcolm McLaren, with the couple finding fame with their 'Sex' boutique on the King's Road and dressing bands including the New York Dolls and then the Pistols.

PELE DIES AGED 82
A life as colourful OFF the field as on it: How Pele had seven children, MANY affairs, mixed with Presidents, acted in films - and even smashed the taboo around Viagra
Commissioned to produce a portrait of Pele in 1977, the artist Andy Warhol quipped: 'Pele was one of the few who contradicted my theory: instead of 15 minutes of fame, he will have 15 centuries.' It nicely sums up the adulation for the footballer widely considered the greatest to ever take the field. Pele was regarded by his contemporaries as the very best but esteem for the Brazilian extended well beyond the stadium and into the realms of sport, politics and popular culture. Nobody could remember exactly how Edson Arantes do Nascimento became contracted into just Pele but those four letters commanded recognition and respect in all four corners of the globe. Once a reporter asked Pele if his fame was comparable to that of Jesus Christ, to which he replied: 'There are parts of the world where Jesus Christ is not so well known.'
We have one Beethoven, one Bach, one Michelangelo... and one Pele: He won three World Cups, but the true legacy of Pele - who has died at 82 - was to unite people of every colour and creed, says DAVID JONES
Pele's funeral to be held on Monday and Tuesday at the home of Santos following his death at the age of 82... with the public able to pay tribute to the Brazilian great for 24 hours before a parade through the streets of his hometown
Steven Tyler is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the 1970s: 'Victim' files lawsuit claiming she is the 'teen bride' in Aerosmith singer's memoir
Aerosmith star Steven Tyler (left) has been accused in a lawsuit of sexually abusing an underage girl when she was 16 and he was 25 in the 1970s. Julia Holcomb (right) filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles in the final days of a California law that temporarily lifts the statute of limitations for such claims under a 'look-back' window that ends on Saturday.

Holcomb has also previously spoken publicly about her alleged relationship with the rock star.
