We all have something that makes us unique—a habit or two that we don’t share with anyone else for fear of being embarrassed. But hey, we’re all human, and it turns out celebrities, and some of the fashion industry’s power players, have some unique—and even unusual—habits of their own.
Karl Lagerfeld, Fashion Designer
This fashion genius is as much known for his signature white ponytail and love of Diet Coke as for his designs at Fendi and Chanel. He recently told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that he sleeps for exactly seven hours, no more or no less, no matter what time he goes to bed. How’s that for an internal alarm.
Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
It was revealed that Kate spends upwards of $17,000 per annum on beauty products and procedures a year, but we’re more curious about her preferred facial cream. According to reports, Kate slathers on a cream that contains bee-sting venom. Pegged as an organic alternative to botox, the cream was created by beauty therapist Deborah Mitchell, who also works with fellow royal inductee Camilla Parker Bowles!
Tom Ford, Fashion Designer
For Tom Ford, there’s nothing more important than making sure one’s appearance is perfection. That’s why he takes an average of five baths a day. As well as making sure he’s clean, the designer also uses the time to relax and unwind, and claims that it’s one of the best ways to think creatively.
Cameron Diaz, Actress
Washing Cameron’s face isn’t a regular affair. According to various sources, the actress prefers to cleanse with bottled Evian water. We’d like to see her grocery bill!
Tom Cruise, Actor
It’s not just exercise that keeps Tom Cruise looking so young. The newly divorced actor also indulges in the occasional Geisha facial—which includes powdered Nightingale droppings. The technique, borrowed from Japanese geishas who used the bird excrements as exfoliants, also counts Victoria Beckham as a fan. Sounds disgusting, but we’re intrigued.
