Kate Bosworth in Prabal Gurung at the Vanity Fair party: stunning or terrible?

I think we’re pretty much done with covering the Oscar red carpet dresses, so that means it’s time to really start focusing on the party girls. Not so surprisingly, given how boring the Oscar ceremony was, all of the fun people showed up at the parties rather than the actual event. Not that Kate Bosworth is “fun”. Just that it would be fun to talk about her in the context of an Oscar red carpet, but that probably won’t happen anytime soon. Just look at The Bos – she’s been preparing for this Vanity Fair red carpet for WEEKS.

Anyway, The Bos wore Prabal Gurung. The dress is… cute? It’s suitable for the occasion – a sparkly cocktail dress that covers up everything that needs covering up. Her legs aren’t even bugging me here. I feel like she might have gained a few pounds. That face, though. That face is “LOOK AT MEEEEeeeee!” Ah, The Bos. She’s with her dude, too. Michael Polish. He seems engaged in her famewhore game, bless his heart.

And here’s Boring McSnooze, Olivia Wilde in Gucci. She’s a pretty girl but… I’d like to see her work with a different stylist. Either she goes way over the top, or it’s just too dull for words. Find a happy-medium, Olivia!

    I like Olivia’s black ensemble, but the gold accessories don’t work at all.

    • Aiobhan says:

      Agreed. It does not work with the style of the dress. Her bag is a miss too.

      • Lis says:

        I like the choker and bangles. I think they really work. It’s not too – *channels Tyra Banks* – matchy matchy. It’s just right.

        The bag, though, is awful – not just for the colour and not just with that dress.

  2. Zozo says:

    Never realized Kate Bosworth had two different coloured eyes.

    • Asli says:

      It’s called heterochromia iridum and it occurs because of the lack of melanin in the eye, usually it’s the lighter eye that is determined as the affected eye. I think Kate only has partial heterochromia because it’s only half of the right iris that is brown while the other part is blue.

    • Maguita says:

      Yep, it used to make her special and different. Now all we talk about is how much she tries hard, and how she needs to eat.

      However, the weirdest thing happened today: In all the Oscar pictures, Angie looks skinnier than Kate! This definitely needs immediate attention, when Angelina is scary skinnier than Kate Bosworth! Angie needs to quit the liquid diet, and get herself back into healthier shape, if only to give good example to her growing daughters.

      • Maguita says:

        Yeah, well, everyone is talking about it today. And her emaciated form popped into my mind when compared with Bosworth, who is quite known for her starving frame!

      • Zenb!tch says:

        When Kaiser said KB’s legs didn’t even bother her, I looked and they are much nicer than Angelina’s. Someone feed that woman!

  3. Nev says:

    love love love stilettos on Bos.

  4. Shelly says:

    Ugh. Another choker (Olivia). But Kate looks good. I generally like her style. Her skinniness works in her favor with outfits like this one.

  5. Asli says:

    I don’t hate Bos’ dress but I dislike the person wearing it. I would wear the dress, though. Olivia looks good.

  6. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Kate IS boring, but her dress is beautiful and she has great legs.

    • Rebane says:

      I’m going to have to disagree with you on Bosworth’s legs. From the front they are disturbingly thin, and from the side she has no calf definition. With heels that high her calves should be popping, but hers barely come out past her ankles. Not a great look IMHO.

      • Ginger says:

        I completely agree with you, her legs are horrible.
        The dress is…fine, though I also have to agree with another poster. I don’t like the person wearing the dress.

        Kaiser you kill me. Love your posts.

  7. Jane says:

    Why does this site hate Kate so much? She’s harmless. I think she’s gorgeous and the dress is actually quite nice. Her shoes are way too high though. Looks painful.

    • cr says:

      It’s not just here.
      I’d sum it up as a general impression that she’s stuck up, a famewhore, someone who had just enough talent that if she’d worked on it might have had a decent film career, but chose to focus on fame instead. IMO.
      I know there’s a circle in the fashion world that adores her, but I get the impression that’s the exception rather than the rule.

    • Samantha says:

      She also has a thing for breaking up relationships (or trying to)–Evan Rachel Wood and Skarsgård, Gwyneth and Chris. And she set up Orlando Bloom, too, by arranging for paps to shoot her hugging him, AFTER he’d gotten married and had a baby.

  8. Mirella says:

    I like bonesworth’s dress. And look at how happy she is with her ‘life partner’!! * eyeroll*

  9. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I think Kate looks pretty, love her dress. What is that statue of a boring person standing next to her though? Ugh..did she find him in the dark corner of a library or something?

  10. QQ says:

    We shouldnt feed the Bosworth attention, that way maybe she can find her way to a sandwich

  11. Ainsley says:

    I love the Bosworth dress, but I don’t like it on her. She’s just too skinny and has a smug face. She could slice someone with her cheek bones or hip bones.

  12. Aiobhan says:

    I really like Kate’s dress but think the belt could have been a little thinner. I am on the fence about the shoes though.

    • Lis says:

      The shoes are not bad, but they’re too big.

      That seems to be a very common problem on red carpets, come to think of it.

      Is it a comfort thing (easier to walk in/slip off), or is it really that hard to find them in the right size?

      I’m genuinely curious, here.

  13. Lis says:

    I like Bosworth.

    (I’m gonna get verbally shanked for this, amn’t I?)

    I like the outfit, as well, apart from the belt.

  14. eileen says:

    I liked the dress until the neckline-I just keep thinking “Bedazzled” when I see the neckline. I want to like Kate-but ‘meh’ is all I get.
    Olivia’s dress doesn’t look like a party dress-boring.

  15. Reece says:

    Idk maybe I would like it more if it was someone interesting. Or if it didn’t just stop at tulle. Is she actually standing on point in heels?

    I like OW dress but it needed better jewelry.

  16. Happy21 says:

    Like, Posh’s pose I am sick of The Bos looking like a complete smug bitch on every red carpet.

  17. Ari says:

    I choked at Boring McSnooze lol

  18. Amanda says:

    Kate’s dress looks like something my mom would have worn in the mid-90s.

  19. Dee Cee says:

    Raccoon eyes.. flat lifeless hair and nude lips style is over? The skating dress is pretty but not on Kate at this event.. and I bet it itched like mad..

  20. shannon says:

    She looks like an ice dancer.

  21. D. says:

    If an actor has given at least one performance I really like, I tend to have a soft spot for them, no matter how annoying they are in real life.

    Which explains why I’m not that hard on Bosworth – loved her in “Blue Crush”. I know so many tween/teenage surfer girls who love that movie too. And her body looked amazing in that movie – since she was playing an athlete, she put on about 15 lbs of muscle.

  22. poppy says:

    bonesworth’s dress is almost there. the belt is awful, the side sheers are unnecessary and the beading should have continued further down to cover up those sticks. i like how the beading/handworkwork looks like butterfly/insect wings. she tries way too hard, tho. goop jr, even shacking up with chris martian.
    i like mcsnooze’s dress and wacky dragonfly belt but the choker is all wrong.

  23. Samantha says:

    From a distance, it reminds me of Christmas tree lights–like someone grabbed a pile of them and made a dress.

  24. WaywardGirl says:

    Stunning dress on a boring person.

  25. original kate says:

    the fact that kate “my career consists of shagging famous dudes” bosworth is invited to the oscars is stunning and terrible.

  26. Gwen says:

    I can’t see the pretty in Kate since it’s all overshined by her greed for attention.

  27. Kim says:

    I would have loved Kates dress but the belt ruins it! Thick leather with this dress does not work. A silk or satin, thinner belt would have made it so much prettier.

  28. Jenna says:

    The dress is alright; the person wearing it however is far from it. I think the beading could have gone down a few more inches and that belt doesn’t help it. And those sticks she calls legs aren’t bothering you? Are you joking?

  29. UKHels says:

    the dress is fine until the belt and then it’s a hideous mess from there downwards

  30. Maritza says:

    Kate Bosworth looks very pretty, I like her dress a lot. I had never noticed the two different eye color, that really makes her unique.

  31. Vera says:

    Olivia’s necklace/choker thing is bad. Otherwise, I think she could have had her hair down and it would have been better.

    Kate’s…I think I would prefer it shorter. Like, end where the beading and embellishments do. Since it is the Vanity Fair party, it doesn’t have to be all floor length. and I think it would have been fine, but perhaps not.

  32. Ally says:

    Kate’s dress is gorgeous! Her boyfriend looks like a Ballet K-Fed lookalike.

    Who was Rose Byrne’s boyfriend, btw? Gorgeous man.

  33. blouson says:

    I think she looks absolutely utterly amazing. Full stop.

    or did the media not care as there were bigger movie stars??
