Vivienne Westwood: 'Don't Buy New Things' (VIDEO)

The Queen of British Fashion Dame Vivienne Westwood appeared on Britain's The Jonathon Ross Show to talk about style, the media, Pam Anderson and climate change. She told the host and his viewers to steer away from buying new things.

She described her penchant for do-it-yourself fashion, saying, "Take a tablecloth, if it's beautiful and even take a towel, if it's good enough...the curtains, or anything...take things from your husband or boyfriend, like boxer shorts." Westwood, herself, was wearing a nine-meter mass of bronze metallic silk, tied and draped around her.
