Kate Winslet to Star In Westwood Biopic

New York Magazine and British Vogue are both reporting that Kate Winslet will play Vivienne Westwood in the upcoming biopic of the designer, as confirmed by a spokesperson for the label. "The script is going well and Kate will play Vivienne," the Westwood office told press over the weekend. "It has been a long time in the planning but we're very excited that it's happening."

Winslet will reportedly spend time with Dame Vivienne to hone her performance once the script for the movie, which will chart Westwood's rise from her punk roots to international fashion super-stardom, is finalized. The as-yet untitled production from Universal comes hot on the heels of the eagerly-anticipated fashion biopic Coco Avant Chanel (for prior post on Coco film, click here).
