Kate Bosworth has been hitting the scene pretty hard lately, and in some pretty ornate stuff.

For instance, I can’t name the last five movies she was in, but I remember her Oscars dress, the Schiaparelli vest and slacks, this terrible Erdem, some Peter Pilotto with a Giambattista Valli chaser, that “astronaut fashionier” thing… and now this, which is both elegantly interesting and also a screamingly jazzy straitjacket. Without a significant project to promote, as far as I can tell, I wonder if there’s an attempt afoot to rebrand her as a clotheshorse, in the hope that the rising tide there will float her other boats. Bless her for keeping it interesting, even though I am concerned that is designed to keep her from being able to raise her arms.
