This Week in Fashion: Demi’s It Factor

April 16, 2010

“Striptease,” “Indecent Proposals,” “Ghost,” “The Scarlet Letter,” “The Butcher’s Wife,” “Nothing But Trouble,” “Mortal Thoughts,” “St. Elmo’s Fire,” and “Disclosure”…movies that I saw where Demi Moore graced the screen with her strong suited acting abilities – able to go from being one character to another, easily adapting to her title roles. 

Over the years, she’s lead a career that’s never wavered in spite of her marital affairs, and recent marriage to Ashton Kutcher that seems to have been a good thing for her. 

Demi, shown here, arrives at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre on March 7, 2010 in Hollywood, California. Photo from Yahoo.images.  She was elegantly dressed from head to toe.  Her shoes were the spitting image of what high heel shoes are designed for.  And the dress didn’t embellish on her figure as she is true to form in looks and glamour.

Who can remember the year she was splashed all over Vanity Fair’s cover when she posed nude when she was pregnant.  This, by far, was my favorite picture of her because she wasn’t afraid to expose herself to the world in this fashion.  She was jus as beautiful as she ever was.

I believe this was at the height of her relationship and marriage to Bruce Willis.

Born Demetria Gene Guynes, she was born 1962 in Roswell, New Mexico.  Her father left her mother, Victoria, before Demi was born.  Her stepfather, Danny Guynes, didn’t add much stability to her life, either.  He frequently changed jobs and made the family move a total of 40 times.  The parents kept on drinking, arguing and beating, until Guynes finally committed suicide.

Demi quit school at the age of 16 to work as a pin-up-girl. At 18, she married rock musician Freddie Moore; the marriage lasted four years. At 19, she became a regular on the TV show “General Hospital” (1982-1983).  She married Bruce Willis November 1987.  They had three children together and later divorced October 2000.  She married Ashton Kutcher November 2005 — they’ve been together every since.

We may not see much of Demi in movies these days, but you can guarantee that she’s keeping busy.  What is it that gives her the “it” factor?  It’s her ability to not make too much of a spectacle out of herself.  After her split with Bruce Willis she took some time off from her career to be with her children.  The last movie I can recall her doing was “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”  I don’t recall anything else after that. 

Regardless of her ups and downs, she holds it together.  Again, she is true to form.
