The designer has previously opened up about maintaining her youthful looks, having told BBC that one of her secrets is simply sleep.

She explains: “I’ve been asked what are my secrets. I’ve got to be really honest, one of them is sleep.

“I value having a vodka cocktail at the end of the day because it helps me transition from a very intense work schedule to a bit of private life.”

She continues: “I’ve been in fashion since I was 19 years old. Not in front of the camera, behind it.

“I never thought about youth, probably because I work with the most beautiful women in the world on a daily basis.

“And because of that I envision them as my muses, and maybe it’s a way of dealing with ageing that is productive.

“So I always said that vodka cocktail, a lot of sleep, but work, work is the magic elixir.”
