At exactly at 8.21 pm on Thursday, the huge neon advertising screens in London's Piccadilly Circus projected a name: that of the British designer and activist Vivienne Westwood, who celebrated her 80th birthday singing "a message to the world."

True to her style, the Queen of Punk was dressed in a hat, gloves, jewelry, a bomber-style jacket, a purple skirt and black boots. She celebrated in an intimate way, surrounded by a few family members and friends. EFE-EPA
