Vivienne Westwood bids emotional farewell to ex husband Malcolm McLaren

by /

Though they hadn't been in touch for a long time, it was clearly an emotional moment for Vivienne Westwood as she said her final farewells to her ex husband.

The British fashion maven wiped away a tear as she attended the funeral of former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, who passed away earlier this month, aged 64.

Wearing a headband emblazoned with the word 'chaos' in tribute, Vivienne was supported by her current husband Andreas Kronthaler as she joined mourners at the send off - which rolled back the years to the golden era of punk.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to pay their respects as the funeral procession made its way to One Marylebone, a private venue opposite Great Portland Street station.

And in Camden, a group of punk rockers lined up to witness the passing of the casket, which had a floral anarchy sign on the back and was emblazoned with the slogan from Malcolm's King's Road 'Sex' shop: 'Too fast to live, too young to die.'

Following behind was a green double decker bus, which blasted out punk anthems loudly over its sound system.

It was a fitting addition to proceedings since the late architect of punk's family had asked friends and admirers across the land to celebrate his life with 'one minute of mayhem', by playing loud music or doing something outrageous.

Other guests at the funeral included Sir Bob Geldof and Eighties electro pop star Adam Ant.
