The punk legend and fashion designer passed away in December aged 81 and a host of famous faces - many wearing the colourful, bold tailoring and tartan patterns the style icon was famed for as part of the 'if in doubt, dress up' dress code - gathered at Southwark Cathedral in London to say their final farewells.

Also joining Vivienne's widower Andreas Kronthaler at the service were singer Stormzy, Kate's model daughter Lila Grace Moss Hack, Lady Amelia Windsor, Helena Bonham Carter and artist Tracey Emin.

Grant and sculptor Daniel Lismore.

Dame Vanessa Redgrave was accompanied to the service by her daughter, fellow actress Joely Richardson, while Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, actresses Christina Hendricks and Jaime Winstone, and Sir Mick Jagger's ex-wife Bianca Jagger were also spotted outside the cathedral.

A host of fellow fashion designers also gathered to pay their respects to Vivienne, including Erdem Moralioglu, Dame Zandra Rhodes, Marc Jacobs, and Matty Bovan.

Following the Dean of Southwark's welcome, Andreas addressed the congregation.

He said: “What she wanted more than anything was to make the world a better place."

Vivienne was laid to rest in a private service in her hometown of Tintwhistle, Derbyshire, last month.
