Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Shoes Timeline

The Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon style of court shoes has become something of an iconic shoe. The shoes, made from Melflex bubblegum scented plastic from the Melissa company, are mid heeled peep toe slingback court shoes, which have a stud fastening ankle strap. The shoes are sculpted and very comfortable to wear with a padded footbed, and the insole has the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Melissa logos as the shoe is a collaboration between both designers.

As a side note, there are also Lady Dragon shoes which have been made as a collaboration between Melissa and the designer Jason Wu which have a stylised golden bow across the toe. These shoes fall outside the scope of this article as they do not form part of the Vivienne Westwood / Melissa chronology, although they are available for purchase from the link at the foot of this page.

The first shoes to be released were the Lady Dragon Heart Shoes and the Lady Dragon Glitter Globe Shoes.

AllSaints Aura Dress, Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch, Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Globe Shoes

AllSaints Aura Dress AllSaints Aura Dress

This is a quirky yet sexy party look. It’s young and fun, yet figure flattering too, and all the elements of the outfit can be easily teamed with other items for maximum use.

AllSaints Aura Dress

This AllSaints evening dress is structured dress with cleverly shaped black side panels to create the illusion of a tiny waist. The green part of the dress has an all over geometric design and there is a full length exposed zip at the back.

The dress is sleeveless with a sweetheart neckline, two slim shoulder straps and it falls to well above the knee. The style is bodycon and slim fitting, although it does fit true to size.

The neckline is suited to a necklace, and you could go for a standard pendant or a more edgy choker style.

This dress would also look good with classic black stilettos or a pair of black ankle boots.

Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch

This silver grey box clutch is a brand new style from Diane Von Furstenberg. It is made from gunmetal silver metallic “tweed” leather, but the most noticeable part of the bag is the asymmetrical clasp fastening at the top, consisting of a large and a small polished silver tone spheres. The clutch also has a matching detachable shoulder strap; the inside is gusseted and there is a slip pocket.

This clutch is perfect for adding polish to any party look, and in addition its neutral tones mean it will go with anything, except maybe gold tones, and would look good teamed with a long black dress for a black tie dinner.

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Sapphire Glitter Globe Shoes

A collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and the Brazilian Melissa shoe company, the Lady Dragon design is a modern day classic. It is brought out each season in different colours and with different embellishments including wings, pom-poms and hearts, although the globe design pictured on the left is perhaps the most fabulous.

The pictured pair are made from glitter infused sapphire plastic, and the sparkle as they catch the light. The irredescent globe is also reminiscent of a Christmas bauble and perfect to wear for a seasonal celebration.

These shoes are ideal for dancing the night away. They are made to be supremely comfortable, with a padded insole and adjustable ankle strap.

You could also team these shoes with ankle crop skinny jeans, such as the stiletto style by Current Elliott, for a smart evening or day wear look.
