This morning, Vogue UK confirms last week's big fashion/movie rumor - that Kate Winslet's accepted the role of Vivienne Westwood in the British designer's upcoming biopic. To prepare, Kate will be spending lots of time with Dame Viv, to pick up on that certain attitude she's known for - and presumably, to learn how to seamlessly morph from concentrated dressmaker to political activist in just a few breaths - and to study the exact shade of pumpkin Kate will need to reprise from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. The movie, from Universal, is untitled so far, but here's a thought - with biopics about Valentino, Chanel (she has two, actually) and now Vivienne Westwood eventually being released in every Regal Theatre across the country, does this mean fashion's new mission to stay accessible has finally shifted from the small screen to the big? Or can studied, thorough movies about designers coexist with Project Runway anyway? UPDATE: Looks like Vogue UK may have spoken too soon...
