The British designer has spoken out against the world's depleting water supplies, but surely a water-saving shower filter might do the trick?
Bizarre beauty tips: 'Don't bathe more than once a week' says Vivienne Westwood
Flamboyant British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood revealed the secret of her eternal youth: only taking a bath once a week.
The 76-year-old queen of punk fashion let the statement slip after watching her husband Andreas Kronthaler's spectacularly idiosyncratic show during Paris Fashion Week.
Asked by reporters how she managed to look so young, Westwood smiled and said: "Don't wash too much."
"She only takes a bath every week. That's why she looks so radiant," added Kronthaler, whom Westwood has described as "the world's greatest designer".
"I only wash once a month," joked the Austrian-born creator, who is 25 years Westwood's junior.
Westwood is also an environmentalist and a vegetarian, who has campaigned against the meat trade depleting water supplies.
