One to watch: Prabal Gurung

When Grazia spotted Demi Moore looking very matchy-matchy with Ashton Kutcher at the Gentlemen's Ball earlier this week, the only thing distracting us from her rather dashing hubby was that glorious monochrome dress with pretty floral print and double bow detailing she was wearing. Upon discovering it's by up-and-coming Prabal Gurung, we fell a little more in love. And it seems we’re not the only ones developing a serious fashion crush on the designer, as this wasn't the first time Demi has chosen one of his frocks for a hot red carpet event...

It was back in April when Demi first wore an asymmetrical design from Gurung’s Autumn/Winter ‘09 collection at the Cartier 100th Anniversary Celebration, followed by the definitive seal of approval via the A-Lister’s Twitter account two months later. Demi posted a picture of herself on the site during the launch of her fragrance clad in a luxe dress with feathered skirt and commented that it’s by a “[w]onderful young designer to look out for, Prabal Gurung!” (And who needs a publicist when you have Ms Moore's endorsement!)

Demi is in very fashionable company: Rachel Weisz and Zoe Saldana have previously walked the red carpet donned in Prabal Gurung frocks while Carey Mulligan and Becki Newton both opted for his feminine designs at events earlier this month. They’re clearly onto a good thing because Prabal Gurung is certainly one to watch.

As the Creative Director & CEO of his self-titled high-couture fashion house, Gurung’s star has been on the rise in the fashion industry. Since studying at New Delhi’s National Institute of Fashion Technology and working on major design projects in India, Gurung decided to continue his studies in New York where he interned at Donna Karan and subsequently joined Cynthia Rowley’s design house at her request. Once he was well-equipped with fashion know-how, Gurung launched his line in February 2009 during NY Fashion Week and a whole host of stars have been clamouring to wear his designs ever since. We can't wait to see which of his dresses Demi will be donning next...
