Tallulah Willis Attends Debutante Ball in Paris, Dad Bruce in Tow (and Demi Absent)

Tallulah Willis, the youngest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, made one of her most notable public appearances to date at the weekend, appearing at Paris’ upmarket Hotel de Crillon on Saturday for the annual Le Bal des Débutantes.

The 17-year-old (center in the picture above) wore a vampish floor-length black Lanvin gown with a jeweled bust to the event, traditionally a rite of passage for eligible young women entering high society. Which begs the question: just how simultaneously awesome and terrifying would it be having Bruce Willis as a father-in-law?

Daddy Bruce was there as it happens, toasting his daughter and dancing with her towards the end of the ball. As one guest told People:

“He was a little different than three years ago [when older daughter Scout was a debutante], more reserved. He was there for his daughter, but protective. It wasn’t until around midnight when he danced with Tallulah that you saw him become more relaxed.”

Tallulah was joined by sisters Rumer and Scout, but one notable absentee was family matriarch Demi Moore.

Moore, who has remained good friends with her former husband, reluctantly announced her divorce from Ashton Kutcher earlier this month after he cheated on her.

Anyway, in another eighteen years the 56-year-old Bruce Willis could get to do all this again – his new wife, 33-year-old Emma Heming Willis, is expecting their first child early next year.
