    She’s lookin’ so much better with a little more weight on her! A+

    Kinnamanfan Says:

    She looks pretty good here. The dress is pretty except for the weird cutout and spangly fringe belt thing. At least she isn’t wearing that white face makeup and I may be mistaken but it looks like she’s put a little meat on her bones! Good for her, maybe she really has found happiness with that Polish guy.

    She’s in NYC? I should go say hi :). The dress is a little too busy for me. But at least her tan is even!

    @Kinnamanfan: The dress is interesting, and not necessarily in a bad way, could stand to lose the collar, though. And the silver belt thingy.

    @Lilla: It does appear to have been applied more evenly this time! :)

    @ladybug: Yes it does! Good job :)

    Macy Says:

    The dress isn’t bad, except the spangly thing hanging there. I like the print, and at least it isn’t beige. She must have gotten a spray tan at the salon yesterday, she hasn’t had that much colour in months. Her profile is brutal though. That giant jaw and egg head are horrible from the side!

  12. 12
    ladybug Says:

    @Lilla: Much better spray tan than the Met Gala.

  13. 13
    Macy Says:

    I think it was the makeup on her face that made it so uneven. Often I’ve noticed she’ll have tan legs or arms, but a white face and neck. I have no idea why they insist on doing her makeup that way, but it’s usually pretty noticable that her face is much more white.

    Actually... Says:

    There is a lot going on with this dress with its loud print, the collar, the cut out, AND the bangly belt. But I think with the right styling it might have been nice. Something softer and more bohemian to go with the attitude of the dress. The black shoes and bag are too severe, as is the hair. But even if she had gotten that right, this dress is just not flattering on her from the side. At all. It’s *FAR* from her worst look, it’s falling somewhere in between meh and bad for me.

  15. 15
    Texas Swede Says:

    Although I find the dress a bit too busy for my liking I have to give credit where it is due. She chose a style that covers her worst points. She has done so on the last two public functions she has attended. And she is not as sickly thin as she was for a while.

    However she could have done much better in the accessory department. With the silver embellishment of the dress it cried out for a silver clutch and shoes embellished with silver. The black is just too rigid for a free flowing and lively outfit. And f ever she used hair extensions this would have been the time. The gypsy attitude of the dress needed a free hair style not a pulled back tight a$$ one.

    But is is one of her better efforts.

    Texas Swede Says:

    Why is my name printing like that?

  17. 17
    Nice Says:

    She looks so pretty. The dress is beautifully cut. The only thing I would change is the black shoes. I would have gone with burgundy pump or strappy sandal.

  18. 18
    Lois Says:

    The sari inspired dress is such a big FAIL. I really don’t think anyone except maybe Chloe Sevigny who could have pulled it off. KB does not have the moxie for avant garde. They should have at least have done a strappy metallic sandal or shoe to match the sash, at least it would have kept the busyness to a minimum. Btw, where’s the life partner?

  19. 19
    WTMF Says:

    Bollywood gone wrong. She should really stop pulling her hair so tight. It would look so much better if she either got extensions or cut it short like she had it before. I think lighter colored shoes would have worked better too.

    Gina Says:

    I am SO glad she finally stopped with that horrible coral colored lipstick. Her make-up is looking good. Don’t hate the dress. It’s not right but it isn’t wrong either? I agree she looks better with a little weight on her. She was smart to go with no jewelry.

    I also – can’t believe I’m about to say this but – I’m actually feeling bad for her . She couldn’t get into the main event. She’s only attending a cocktail party in celebration of the event.

  21. 21
    Lois Says:

    Her jaw looks really big here, but what I really noticed is that her stomach looks like she’s had a few good meals or….Perhaps it’s just the cut of the dress:

  22. 22
    Lois Says:


    I think you may be right that she was’t at the main event since everyone else was pictured against the CFDA background. Wow! She’s relegated to wearing new unknown designers and old discounted frocks from Topshop that are now on Ebay:

  23. 23
    Nice Says:

    She is at the main event. (shaking head)

    BLAH Says:

    i like it just before the cut out. after that is blah. the styling is terrible black?? ankle strap heels to chop of your legs?? i dont get the silver thing on the dress too. but i think its good she supports unknown designers

    i dont know why ppl are saying shes gained weight she still looks the same 1 years ago or 2 years ago.
    she just covers parts of her body and the patterns/colours of her clothes can make it looks likes she gained weight.

    but over all no one really looked fantastic at this event.

    its been over a year since they have split do we really need to keep bring alex up?? it just makes you look stupid.

  28. 28
    WTMF Says:

    @Annie: Funny because her fan(s) are the ones who constantly bring him up, seems like you’re the ones that need to let it go. This post is about her, not him, so leave him & her other exes out of it.

    frisbee Says:

    With that bony chest and thighs covered it’s much better, but she still looks years older than she is. And no, I don’t think she’s put on weight, the ‘extra’ meat on her arms and stomach is just flab from lack of exercise.

    fashionista Says:

    Kate looks fabulous! I remember when she went to this event a few years ago with Proenza-Schouler before anyone knew who they were. They won best new designers that year. She really gets fashion and has a great eye for talented new designers. I love her dress, shoes, hair, makeup, everything. AS started dressing a thousand times better when he met Kate. He dropped the silly Euro boy look – tight pants, sheer shirts, yuck!

  31. 31
    WOW Says:

    Great look but Kate makes whatever she wears look fabulous. What a beautiful woman.

  32. 32
    haha don't think so Says:

    Are you mad? You mean he started dressing far better since he left her. Look at Hobbit he dresses like a serial killer way too much gel and he is copying the euro look of Askars I wonder where he got that idea from but just like a stan your ideas are clearly clouded. She is as original as bottle water.
    That dress is hideous. The silver and the cut on the side what the *****. Is this fashion? I’ll got to salvation army.

    Horrible dress

    LOLLOL Says:


    um Kate is the one who changes her clothes to her BF. Alex still wears the same stuff before/during dating her and after splitting with her.

    at the oscars after party Alex killed it in the tux (and any other suit he wears) compared to the hobbit who looked sad in his.

    that dress is really unflattering on the side the gathering and her hunching, not sucking in the stomach makes her look pregnant even tho shes not.

    i swear stylists meant to make sure the clients looks good in all angles??

    ladybug Says:

    @getoverit: @WTMF: That’s what I keep having to write. Except for the backsliding in her last thread the ones bring up the exes are her fans.
    And for the most part we’ve been rather complimentary toward her, at least more than is normal in a KB thread :) It’s like one of them has to drop in on a thread, without reading it, and say that no one likes her because of her ex, as opposed to just not really liking her.

    @Macy, her upper arms appear to be tanned, the rest of her isn’t, but unlike the Met they did try and match the spray tan, and the makeup is better.

  37. 37
    Eresyn Says:

    I think the dress looks very pretty from afar (so does she LOL). But watching it closely, i don’t dig the cutout part or the belt. The shoes are nice,but they don’t belong with this dress, and the fake, even tan makes her look almost healthy. Hate the hair though, she should cut it into a bob, i think it’ll suit her better.

  38. 38
    In the sky Says:

    People are starting to be fair with her. She looks very pretty.
    To me Kate is more into the fashion world that into acting. Nothing bad with that.

  39. 39
    WTMF Says:

    @ladybug: Maybe when her & MP break up & they see that people still dislike her, they’ll stop. I doubt it though. It’s the only thing they have to defend her with.

    Lilla Says:

    @fashionista: He dresses the same way he always has. And like others have said, this post is about her, let’s leave the exes out of it.

    Marj Says:

    She looks like she has a plastic face. That is what you call real Botox.

    ladybug Says:

    @Nice: if you look at the other pics from this event, her post is the only one JJ didn’t use red carpet pics, hence the presumption that she wasn’t at whatever the main event was.

    @In the sky: “To me Kate is more into the fashion world that into acting. Nothing bad with that.”

    No there isn’t, and since she’s not done much acting over the years, she might as well focus on the fashion. Question is, even though she’s something of a fashionista, helped out by when she was getting more acting jobs, is she going to be able to get to another of fashionistadom by not acting? She’s not getting that extra bit of fame from acting that could get her known outside that medium-sized circle of fashion. Does she she actually have to learn to design her stuff, instead of just curate it?

  43. 43
    Lois Says:

    If anyone doubts that JJ is paid or renumerated in some fashion for the KB posts, the fact that more relevant people where at thid event but JJ used KB to spearhead the coverage should leave no doubt. Btw, I really believes that some of the trolls are JJ staffers that want more hits and posts on KB’s

  44. 44
    Macy Says:

    At least her face matches this time. Usually it’s fish belly white. Ugh!

  45. 45
    ladybug Says:

    @Lois: He uses this to spearhead the coverage because he knows she’s so popular! :)
    I do find it funny that he hasn’t added any photos of her on the red carpet, as he has with the other event posts, so she still looks like she was kept out in the lobby.
    And notice her last two post have put put on the top of the page almost immediately after they were posted. That’s not done on the basis of the number of comments. Maybe RB was begging for coverage.

  46. 46
    Nice Says:

    @Ladybug- They didn’t have to have pictures they knew she was at the event. They just wanted something to pick and laugh about. It’s okay though, I know it’s the way things go here.

  47. 47
    ladybug Says:

    @Nice: Every other post on this event had pics that were on the red carpet, including ones posted before hers. And he can add pics later. It’s not a KB thing, it’s a JJ thing. Unless you mean that JJ, despite his fawning posts about her, is secretly being mean by having hers look like she wasn’t on the red carpet.

    Lois Says:

    The outfit actually looks fierce on the runway model; trust KB to muck thingd up.,0,48

    Nice Says:

    @ladybug- you are making fun of me now. I was talking about those who were making fun that she was just invited to the cocktails not the event.

  50. 50
    Lois Says:


    I sometimes think that JJ is her frenemy; seriously, did he have to add the part about her running errands in the Topshop dress? There are tons of other pictures of her including ones with the designer but JJ hasn’t added any.

  51. 51
    Texas Swede Says:

    @Lois: I think he likes to ‘Feed the Frenzy’. She does help keep his hits up and his money coming in.

    I don’t think he cares one way or the other if she is liked or not. As long as it makes money for him.

  52. 52
    ladybug Says:

    @Nice: Not making fun of you, just trying to determine whether or not you were adding JJ to the list of people who might be mocking her.
    As Lois pointed out, there are times when it seems that JJ is her frenemy, he’ll do lots of posts on her, but sometimes it seems he’s just going through the motions.

  53. 53
    Texas Swede Says:

    Now he is showing her at the top twice. Once for this thread and again to link to full coverage of the event. But hers is not the top thread on that post. Exactly what I meant about feeding the frenzy. LMAO

    Whycantipost Says:

    Tbh, I like this outfit on her.. She also looks a bit healthier weightwise.
    Only thing that bothers me; when she is smiling, on side of her upperlip does something weird, it goes up more than the rest or something.. meh

  55. 55
    Whycantipost Says:

    Just realised the pic with her weird mouth-thing isn’t on here.. A link, I mean the thing in the second picture in this article:

    Something weird is going on there.

    chelle Says:

    @Lois: also just like her to use something straight from the runway. So yet again her “original look ” is not so original after all. That being said, it doesn’t suck. She actually looks decent… I agree with whoever said she should cut her hair. She did look good/better when her hair was shoulder length.

  59. 59
    Actually... Says:

    I actually liked the runway look better with the thigh high boots and the loose hair. Although she doesn’t have the model’s attitude so it still might not have been as good if she had kept the look the straight off the runway.

  60. 60
    fashionista Says:

    Kate’s look is much better that the runway look for this event. I actually prefer Kate’s look to the runway look for any event.
    Because she was there with Joseph Altuzurra, I’m sure he had some say in what he’d like her to wear. He probably offered a couple choices. BTW, he won best womenswear designer that night.
    @#32: Before AS started dating KB he wore tight pants and sheer shirts. He dresses so much better today.
    @Lois: JJ isn’t paid or renumerated in some fashion for KB posts. She gets a lot of comments and that’s good for his business. I wonder how many hits she’d get if the Alex fan girls went away. There’s a group who’s on here 24/7!

    WOW Says:

    She looks fit and happy! Love her.

    From E!’s Fashion Police poll:
    Half-Off Gypsy
    Kate Bosworth tries gypsy chic at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC with an Altuzarra print sarong dress with waist cutout and coin embellishments along the hips. Unfortunately for Kate, you couldn’t pay us to watch this gypsy dance. The velvet ankle-cuff heels burn our eyes, the print looks like something you’d find at a garage sale, and the flared skirt is all wrong. Yuck.
