Celebrities are digging moats these days

There's a new medieval rage in celebrity homes – moats.

For stars such as Rihanna – who have to move to super secure buildings to avoid stalkers that end up on their back porches – a dense swath of impenetrable water starts to look appealing.

Gisele Bündchen and her hubby Tom Brady have a moat, complete with the requisite koi. Their architect Richard Landry is one of the hot designers credited with the trend.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the elite prefer the term “wraparound water feature.” No doubt when drums of hot oil are poured on invading hoards, that's also called “an immersive skin peel.”
