Ring in the new year with some great ballet—and great style. The Vienna Philharmonic's legendary annual New Year's concert—broadcast in more than 90 countries—will offer a special treat during intermission: A performance by the Vienna State Ballet. What's more, the dancers will be decked out in designs by queen of punk Vivienne Westwood, both while dancing on stage and in a film that was shot inside Vienna's ultra-opulent Palais Liechtenstein. The costumes will spotlight some of the designer's more romantic pieces, as well as a few of her punk-inspired classics. Take a peek at some of the looks at wwd.com.


None other than Julie Andrews serves as host for the festivities. See it all on PBS this Wednesday at 2:30 pm ET (check your local listings). Find out more at wienerphilharmoniker.at.
