I’ve been known to unpromptedly announce to anyone who will listen that I’m strategizing my entry into the Demi Moore phase of my life. I mean that on the most superficial level, of course. Specifically, I’d like to spend the rest of my forties — and the rest of my life — with what has been her signature look since the start of the new millennium, when she was entering her forties: very long, very dark, very straight hair. I’ve got two out of the three going for me already, but I never feel like I’m fully nailing the steadfast super-sleek hair that has become so closely associated with her. But after getting a glimpse of how she looked at the Academy Museum Gala, I’m pleased to see that pin-straight hair may not be a strict prerequisite for being in one’s Demi Moore era.
Moore was one of many celebrities to attend the Los Angeles event on Sunday, December 3, and she posed on the red carpet looking next-level glamorous in a glistening Tamara Ralph gown featuring a huge, sequined rosette on the bodice. Her makeup was decidedly in-line with her usual low-key glam, but her hair took a turn for the wavy.
Normally — and I mean two decades’ worth of normally — we see Moore wearing her waist-length hair parted in the middle and straightened within an extremely glossy inch of its life. At the gala, however, she wore her super-long style dramatically flipped to one side and, most notably, not straight. Instead, she opted for a slightly messy, loosely wavy finish with an air-dried mermaid kind of feel.
