Actress, Hollywood Wife, 29

FASHION CREDO: Less is Moore.


COUTURE CONTRIBUTION: Dog bootees—at $400 a pooch—for her privileged Yorkies.

With or without child, Mrs. Bruce Willis sure knows how to model a birthday suit. It’s putting her clothes on that gets this actress into trouble. The gamine-faced beauty has a split fashion personality, and style watchers say both of them need help. First there’s Demi’s all-out ’40s pinup incarnation, in which she combines too little material with too much makeup. “She obviously has a good body,” says designer Vera Wang. “But it would be chicer if she didn’t show it all, all the time.” But when Demi dresses down, she goes to the other extreme—a Chaplin-esque waif whose Big Top—size clothes overwhelm her naked face. There is something to be said, after all, for not going all the way.
