In or Out: Kate Bosworth in Burberry Prorsum
The overwhelming impression we always get of her is “trying way too hard.” We have no opinion of her as an actress, but as a fledgling fashionista (for that is surely how she wants to be seen, sans “fledgling,” of course), she gets it wrong at least as often as she gets it right. And to be fair, when she gets it right, it’s usually in a manner more interesting than those of her starlet sisters. But when she gets it wrong she always looks like a total fashion victim.
This look just screams “HERE AM I, A FASHIONISTA, DRESSED TO SIT IN THE FRONT ROW AT THE BURBERRY SHOW, FOR I, A FASHIONISTA, AM WEARING BURBERRY RIGHT DOWN TO MY PANTIES.” We don’t hate everything here. That is one sassy-looking jacket, we have to say. We love it, and we love the quilted booties, but my GOD, that skirt is a WEAPON. A silly, stiff-looking, uncomfortable weapon that is not only trying too hard to look edgy, it’s failing miserably because all we can think of are those peel-off button candies you used to get as a kid on a strip of paper. So it’s a kind of Mad Max in Candydome kind of look and honeys? That is assy in the extreme. Very OUT. Don’t try so hard next time, girl. And we hope you learned something later that day when you got undressed. Repeat it with us now: “Skirts aren’t supposed to cause bruises, skirts aren’t supposed to cause bruises…”
