This event has been and gone.

Vivienne Westwood is one of the icons of our age. Fashion designer, activist, co-creator of punk and a global brand. She is a true living legend.

Her career has successfully spanned five decades and her work has influenced millions of people across the world. Told in all its glamour and glory, and with her unique voice, unexpected perspective and passionate honesty, Westwood's diary is fresh and unpredictable.

Begun in 2010, it is generously illustrated with her own selection of irresistible images. Her thoughts are as fascinating and provocative as you would expect from Britain's punk dame - a woman who always says exactly what she believes. And what a life!

One week, you might find Vivienne up the Amazon, highlighting tribal communities' struggles to maintain the rainforest; another might see her visiting Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy, or driving up to David Cameron's house in the Cotswolds in a full-on tank.

Caroline Lucas is co- leader of the Green Party and is MP for Brighton Pavilion.
