Vivienne Westwood was spotted riding the escalators of London Waterloo underground station yesterday in the company of model Leebo Freeman and designer Sadie Frost. They were seen wearing 'Save the Arctic' T-shirts that Vivienne designed for the Greenpeace organisation.

Lining the escalators were 60 muted colour portraits of celebrities such as Maisie Williams, Sir Ian McKellen, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Tom Hiddleston and Sienna Miller to name a few. The portraits make up an exhibition that aims to raise awareness of the need to protect the Arctic.

If you're wondering why the exhibition is in an underground station instead of in an art gallery, it's because Waterloo is the London HQ of Shell, the oil company that will begin drilling in the Arctic this month.

"If we don't save the arctic, forget it. That's it. You know, first thing we have to do is save the rainforest, save the arctic otherwise forget it. End of the human race soon," said Vivienne. "People don't understand, we got to make or break. We're already there we just have to do it. Don't listen to the politicians, listen to us, and listen to the scientists. Look at what's happening."

You can get your own T-shirt here or you can see the rest of the celebrities from the campaign here. All proceeds from the T-shirts will go directly to Greenpeace.
