Great Scot! 13 Fashion Insiders Who Fly the Tartan Flag

Let the haters hate. To commemorate Scotland’s vote today to potentially squash a 307-year-union with the United Kingdom and become an independent state, we’ve rounded up our favorite tartan-waving fashionables to keep you occupied until the tally comes in.

Leading the charge isgaspa Brit: Dame Vivienne Westwood. According to TIME, the Queen of Punk used her London Fashion Week catwalk to get in the game, handing out a statement to editors and buyers that read: “Scottish independence could be a great day for Democracy.” Then the 73-year-old designer let it fly to reporters: “I hate England…I like Scotland because somehow I think they are better than we are. They are more democratic.” Never a dull moment in the Westwood residence.

For more insiders that may or may not have belted out a “Scotland the Brave” anthem during shower time, flip through the slideshow below.
