There were two major star sightings at the House of Holland show at London Fashion Week this weekend: Kate Bosworth and Woody Woodpecker! OK, OK, so Bosworth was just wearing a dress with Woody Woodpecker on it, but the cartoon bird did have a surprisingly important role in the high-fashion evening’s festivities.

Showing a new capsule collection designed in partnership with Universal and its classic cartoon bird, House of Holland designer Henry Holland featured Woody Woodpecker prominently on his runway. Not only did Woody grace Bosworth’s style-savvy shoulder (check it out below!) but he also served as inspiration for every hyper-Americana piece in the collection.

With Woody Woodpecker’s image splashed across sweatshirts, T-shirts, jackets, and cowboy boots, and influencing — more subtly — the stars-and-stripes patterns on many of Holland’s garments, the presence of the uniquely American cartoon bird could be felt everywhere.

This could be the most ~American~ collection we’ve seen this season — and the designer is English!

Of her decision to wear the kitschy dress, Bosworth explained to Elle, “I’ll pay attention to anything with cartoons. I love them.”

Whatever the inspiration for this line, we’re into it. Who knew Woody Woodpecker could be such a style influencer?
