From George Clooney, to Hugh Grant; from Naomi Campbell, to Pamela Anderson, and again Stella McCartney, Chris Martin and Kate Moss. They all wear a T-shirt designed by Vivienne Westwood, who is supporting campaigns on climate for many years. She declared: “we need to continue this momentum until it becomes a torrent they can’t afford to ignore”.
