The Telegraph's Lisa Armstrong talks punk

Fifth in line to share their favourite punk fashion moment for our Punk: On the Runway series is Lisa Armstrong, fashion editor of The Telegraph

Armstrong's recording celebrates Liz Hurley's infamous safety pin dress, worn to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994. Armstrong explains how this now iconic anti-fashion moment was punkish in both aesthetic (we all know safety pins are iconic of punk) and attitude - after all punk clothes were all about grabbing attention.

For Armstrong, Hurley's statement dress, which has since become known as 'That Dress', is a paradigm example of the contradictory nature of punk, and it was the buccaneering spirit with which it was worn that makes it stand out nearly twenty years on. To hear more, listen to Lisa here.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks for musings from Dazed's Karen Langley, NOWFASHION's Jessica Michault and freelance journalist and fashion consultant Melanie Rickey.
