Unlike most celebrities who shave their head right before a rehab stint, Vivienne Westwood shaved her signature red hair to protest climate change. The Telegraph reports that Westwood appeared at a local protest, newly shorn. Her spokespeople explained that the new hair was a political statement:

Vivienne cut her hair as we must all wake up to Climate Change.

Hurrah! Less hydrofluorocarbons for all. But what does short hair have to do with climate change?

And secondly she wanted to cut the red out for a while and have it white — to show she's proud of her age.

Save the Earth and save money on hair dye.
