Kate Bosworth in Valentino, at the Deauville Film Festival: surprisingly lovely?


I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but Kate Bosworth looks really good here. These are photos of Kate at the opening ceremony for the Deauville Film Festival. She’s in Valentino and… it suits her? On another girl, I would think this dress would be super-boring. But the clean style and the simply bow belt, it flatters Kate’s too-thin figure. It adds a few inches to her skinny body. Kate brought her lover, Michael Polish, as her date. He walked the red carpet with her… which means that The Bos doesn’t really hate doing the red carpet thing with her lovers, which means that it was Alexander Skarsgard who didn’t want to be photographed with her.


Kate is at the Deauville Film Festival to promote her film Another Happy Day, which finds her at the centerpiece of an ensemble family drama. Something about a wedding at the family estate, basically rich, neurotic white people with problems, I think. Demi Moore is in it, as is Ellen Barkin. Sounds like a must-miss film!

The Bos also has Straw Dogs coming out soon, which should be an interesting promotional tour now that she and Skarsgard are over. Do you think they’ll pose together on the red carpet? Do you think The Bos will bring her new lover to the premiere in an attempt to make Alex jealous? Hahahaha. If you remember, Kate’s version of how that all went down was that she cheated on Alex with Polish, and then SHE dumped Alex. Rii-ight. Anyway, Kate talks about Straw Dogs in her Blackbook Mag interview, which you can read here.

UPDATE: I’ve added some photos of The Bos in white Chanel at the Deauville premiere. I don’t like this one.

    She looks very good. Nice to see her out of her ankle booties.

  2. Franny says:

    meh, don’t care. just happy that you guys are writing today, since everything else is so boring!

  3. Eve says:

    I think I have a serious problem with people’s ears (including my own — wish they were smaller)…because I look at these pictures and can’t take my eyes of hers. They’re…odd.

  4. Anon says:

    She does look very pretty in this dress, and I love her shoes. And I agree, the reason why she looks good is that the dress adds some weight to her.

  5. Gwen says:

    I’m going to sound like a wacko Skarsfan but I think she dressed for him (more simple, less girly) while they were together and now she’s back to dressing like she wants to. She looks much better stylewise here and I guess the new guy is more into her way of using their relationship than Alex was so yay for the Bos? An even bigger YAY for Alex be Bosloose though :D

  6. Green_Eyes says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the white number! The black is beyond matronly and the bow is just …. It’s just gotta go!

  7. Quest says:

    *mouth opened* She is looking good…nice color, nice dress. Surprise, surprise.

  8. samab says:

    I love her brown and blue eyes .I don’t get why a lot of people dislike her,she’s fine.

  9. Nick says:

    Why she looks cry?

  10. Call Me Al says:

    the outfit is chic but she is too skinny

  11. hairball says:

    She does look very pretty in Valentino. I always thought her face was beautiful. But she is sickly skinny….wow.

    When Alex and her were dating why would he walk a head of her or pretend not to be with her when cameras came around? His walking two feet in front of her didn’t fool anyone about their dating status and to me just makes it look like he’s embarrassed by the relationship / not respectful.

    I know people will jump all over that but I’m team Alex here and it’s likely because he doesn’t want his personal life invaded or be another shallow ‘Hollywood’ star. But if I was the girl, it might make me feel bad after awhile regardless of the reason if my boyfriend suddenly walked two feet in front of me when cameras showed up.

    With that said they really did not seem like a good match. He seems like a very nice guy who doesn’t want to turn his life into a distraction but keep it private

  12. ShanKat says:

    I love the brown dress from the bow down (including the shoes). It’s elegant and fashiony. But the top part is mother-of-the-brideish. I hate this trend of elasticised cuffs. It never looks good. It’s why I didn’t love the Fussy Pippa blouse. (well, the sleeves and the Pippa-was-wearing-it part.)

    I don’t “get” K-Boz. Blank, pretty, meh. The eyes are SO distracting. They should be rad, but…they’re just not. Her lovah looks like a blast. These kids are quite a party, obvs.

  13. Green_Eyes says:

    Do love her shoes though that she’s wearing w/ the black dress:)

  14. TG says:

    I have always thought she was beautiful even if she is too skinny and I like both outfits here, however why does she look like a 48 year old wax figure? This is the first time I have seen her where she looks old to me. What is that makeup they wear in hollywood that gives them that greasy look. It only ages them.

  15. amurph says:

    I thought she looked relatively decent here – she had been really missing a good number of her event outfits. Either the dress was just not good or her hair was a rat’s nest. She still is sooooooo thin, maybe more so than usual but not as thin as she got post-OB. She does look old and it doesn’t help her make up is caked on her face – the close ups of her face show a very noticeable slathering of foundation and powder. Still though, good on the dresses. And Polish seems very into her.

  16. The Original Ashley says:

    She does look good. How weird. And I love the white Chanel. It’s beautiful.

  17. cr says:

    Gwen, do you mean her style for red carpet, or ‘casual’ style or both? I’ve seen that theory on other sites, and I don’t know enough about her style history (nor care to know) to make a judgment. If she did changes styles for him, that’s rather sad because I don’t think he cared, just as long as she didn’t spend hours getting ready.

    hairball, while I suspect some of the walking way in front of her was due to height difference, it did seem very odd. It did make me wonder what he really thought of the relationship.

  18. Leigh says:

    ugh. Why is she SOOO skinny? I can’t even see the clothes on her anymore.. just her underweight frame and sad little face..

  19. Cheyenne says:

    Cover them knees, girl… you got some knobby-looking knees.

  20. cr says:

    Oh, and I like the darker blonde hair, the bleach job did nothing for her (Goop, please take note).

  21. Sheigh says:

    With her anorexic’s size and hands and face of an oldster, I only wonder myself how the wind doesn’t fall her down! Simply very scary!

  22. Turtle Dove says:

    Thanks for posting, Kaiser. Hope everyone has a good Labor Day.

    I’m aghast at how lovely she looks. I’ve never thought that she was unattractive; her facial structure is gorgeous. It’s the famewhoring, neediness and constant pap photos that are annoying. You can’t go on other sites without being bombarded with her posts. At least this site keeps the Bos to a minimum.

  23. Gigi says:

    Gwen – I think you’re right. Alex has said in interviews that he prefers women with no makeup and simple, soft clothes… which is how Kate dressed when they were together. I’ve noticed she’s wearing more makeup and more structured clothes since their split. It works for her – she looks great!

  24. Glyrics says:

    I think she’s beautiful. Not a fan gurl ’cause in my Legolas phase, I stuck pins in her image. A lot.

    I’ll bet her and the ex will be professional, like Johnny Depp was not when he posed with Angelina Jolie during The Tourist. That and his support of polanski lost me as a fan.

    Not that you asked.

  25. Cecile says:

    She is a living doll, I’m happy that she doesn’t look so skinny here.
    About the break-up story, only Kate and Alex know, so please please lose the “Rii-ight.”

  26. ElleGin says:

    pretty dress, fug girl

  27. layla says:

    More shoe p0rn!!!!!!!!! :)

    She looks great in the Valentino (with the AMAZING SHOES)

    She reminds me of Sharon Stone in the white Chanel for some reason (esp her look and pose int eh first white dress pic)… and not in a good way, in a older lady cougar way! -haha-

  28. munchies says:

    please… I want that shoes badly!

  29. K.C. says:

    I actually like both dresses, but she looks really really old and just fake. What has she done to her face?

  30. cr says:

    K.C., she’s done something to her face, peels perhaps? She used to have face freckles, where’d they go?

  31. sandy#1 says:

    love both dresses , i don’t know enough about her to comment on anything else, yay or nay.

  32. Jen34 says:

    Hmmmm I like both of the dresses. The black one especially flatters her. But her face and neck disturb me. She looks malnourished. It’s a shame because she used to have a pretty face.

  33. Gwen says:

    @cr: Among her fans it seems they’ve been very bothered by her casual style primarily while she and Alex were together. Like Gigi says, Alex has previously been very vocal about what he likes in a girl and to me it could really look like she tried to fit into his ideal. I don’t know about her red carpet style. I would think both her casual and red carpet style would reflect her taste but who knows.

  34. Boromir's bytch says:

    For someone with her own jewelry line she shows great restraint.

    Cher Coulter has made her look her best but she’s just so..so lifeless.

  35. Lady of the Lake says:

    Although she does look thin (always) this could be close to her natural weight – she does not have the protruding bones on her upper chest or back that people have when they are truly scarily thin.

  36. Madison says:

    Both dresses are really pretty, great styling she looks great.

  37. Lewis says:

    She looks great to me :D :D

  38. cr says:

    Gwen, so her look at say, Coachella the last two years, is not her natural look?

    Lady of the Lake, she looks better than she has, but looking at her pics from about 10 years a ago, she looks much thinner than then. She’s naturally slender and small-boned, but I think she’s still a little underweight.
    Sadly, in her two chosen fields of fashion and HW, she is probably considered fat.

  39. Dani says:

    I prefer the style of the black dress to the white one; I just wish it were another color.

    Her weight looks fine to me, though she never looked better than in her Blue Crush days.

    I’ve never thought her particularly beautiful or even attractive, but her face looks good in the pictures where she is wearing the black dress.

    She and the new boyfriend make a handsome couple.

  40. Camille says:

    @Eve: I agree with you. Her ears are weird…

    I think she looks fug here, in both outfits.
    And her new guy is a major downgrade from ASkars. HAHA.

  41. Tiffany says:

    How is it with all of the photos that are posted she has such a look of smug on her face. I mean all of them, not one smile or not softness in her face. What is going on?

  42. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    She does look much better covered. It’s sad, I think she’s rather beautiful, and would be even more so with 10 pounds added to her thin frame. If she was naturally this skinny it’d be one thing but she looks like she’s starving herself.

  43. ZenB!tch says:

    I love the white. I would love the black if she had a bra on. Just because someone is small breasted doesn’t mean they don’t need a bra.

    That length really flatters her legs.

  44. Blithe says:

    The brown outfit suits her. She really does look lovely in it. It’s a cute cut and it adds the illusion of a little weight to her body, which is a really really good thing. But…even though she’s pretty skinny, nothing beats this:


    she at least looks better than she used to.

  45. taksi says:

    I’m not crazy about either of those dresses but she does have really great style .

  46. JessJ says:

    “she does not have the protruding bones on her upper chest”

    Uh yes she definitley does, they stick out a LOT. They’re just mostly covered in these dresses.

  47. Jojo says:

    If the camera adds 10 pounds that means she must weigh, what….14 pounds?

  48. taxi says:

    Does anyone else remember her first interviews, when she was going on about her lofty ancestral lineage & how she’s an American “blue-blood” and from such an aristocratic background? She lost me forever with that.

  49. geekychic says:

    i do think she is beautiful, and as some of you already stated, her facial structure is classic. the eyes are out of this world. but, she is so skinny it’s scary: most of the time when i see her i keep thinking how sad her life and persona must be.
    her acting? i don’t think i’ve ever spotted her for her talent, i don’t even remember her in anything.
    sad, sad, sad.

  50. Claire says:

    Both dresses flatter, but the white is far superior. She needs a little more oomph. She’s sort of wan.

  51. hairball says:

    @Blithe: Holy f*ck! Is that photoshopped??

    @Geekychic: those are my exact thoughts pretty much about her. Sadness and emptiness. I know people hate her and I don’t have a visceral feeling for her – she seems like a lost soul with a sad life.

  52. Eve says:

    @ Camille:

    They’re weird, aren’t they? They remind me of Dopey’s ears (the dwarf from Snow White).

    But “people with strange ears” is one of my pet peeves so I admit that it’s weird in itself that I pay so much attention to something most people don’t care about.

  53. Gwen says:

    @cr: I know that her look at Coachella this year was put together with the help of her stylist Cher Coulter (or something) who happens to often tweet about the looks she and Kate are planning for events. So I actually have no idea what her casual style is or if she has one, since she gets help from a stylist going to a rock concert.

    Cher also styled her here btw and tweeted photos.

  54. Gretchen says:

    love her eyes (it may just be me, but i think her brown-eyed half is prettier), that aside she’s a famewhore and really really really needs to eat!!! I don’t know how ASkars (or anyone really) can date anyone of time that has no joy in food for a prolonged period of time.

  55. cr says:

    hairball, no that’s not photoshopped. That was summer of 2006, when the concentration camp chic look was in, I think Keira Knightly looked similarly skeletal.

  56. dahlia1947 says:

    The Valentino dress is nice. It suits her frame and I just love the shoes! Not really the color.. I just love high heels!

    She looks sad. She’s either hungry or missing ASkars! I don’t think she wanted to break up w him AT ALL!! And also the thought of her cheating on him makes me sick. Literally! lol

    I mean how and WHY do u cheat on that big HUNK OF MAN MEAT? :(

  57. Joanie says:

    I never get tired of looking at her, thanks for the photos. Who is Michael Polish, he seems very intriguing.

  58. Amy says:

    I love Skarsgard, and I don’t hate Bosworth. Her eyes are amazing, and I think she looks absolutely gorgeous in the brown dress. I like the backside of the white dress, but she doesn’t have the goods to fill out the bust. And its neckline is too high.

    She would be doing herself a favor to stick with a clean and sophisticated style. She too often goes boho or grungy, and it makes her look terrible (and emphasizes her thinness).
