demi moore westwood

OMG! When we spotted these pictures of Demi Moore at the 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards, we were completely stunned at how beautiful she looked. That electric blue column gown, is, of course, one of the oh-so-distinctive designs by Vivienne Westwood. Demi usually favours sharply-tailored modern silhouettes from the likes of Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham, so seeing the 47-year-old actress in a softly-draped classical style from the Grand Dame of fashion was something of a revelation.

There are, of course, many Westwood obsessives out there, and we mean obsessives; those who collect Viv's clothes, wear them head-to-toe and will dress in nothing else. Kate Moss is known to be a huge fan (and collector) of Westwood's clothing, most famously igniting a revivial for those flat buckled pirate boots back in 2000; (and soon after becoming obsessed with Westwood's spike-heeled Sex shoes). But it's been a while since Mossy has been spotted in any Vivienne Westwood clothing. Meanwhile, the most high profile Westwood wearers are Nigella Lawson, whose Sophia Loren-style curves show off the designer's draping to perfection and, of course, endlessly eccentric posh punk Helena Bonham Carter, who wears nothing else for premieres and awards shows.

Seeing Demi Moore wearing Vivienne Westwood, (and looking so stunning in it too), made us very happy indeed. Hopefully this will spark a whole new craze for the much-underworn British designer on the red carpets of Hollywood. Oh, and we still think Viv would do Kate Middleton a rather magnificent wedding dress, despite her recent comments...
