NYMAG is reporting that Kate Winslet is set to play Vivienne Westwood in an upcoming film about the legendary designer's life. I think this was a wonderful casting choice and can't wait to see this film. Westwood has led such an interesting life and is largely responsible for taking punk fashion mainstream so you know the end result won't be dull. I also expect there to be a fabulous soundtrack featuring the Sex Pistols!
EDIT: according to NY Mag's blog The Cut, Kate has not yet been confirmed to play Westwood- apparently, the film is far from being written, let alone cast. We can still hope though!
