    I absolutely CAN NOT with her pursed expression in this photos.

    Usually I’m a big Pucci fan, but I don’t like the seam down the middle of her skirt, the sheer undershirt thing, or the weird flap it’s creating over her lower abdomen. It seems very shoddily constructed.

    • 3boysful

       I was interpreting the expression as
      Photo 1 – I hope I’m getting paid a lot to attend this Tarzhay thing . . .
      Photo 2 – No, really, why am I here, and there’s no Helen Mirren or Cate or Halle or Julia . . .
      Photo 3 – My agent’s going to die . . .

      And I agree with all of ya’ll–the purse IS heinous.

    In another fabric and color this could have been striking. As is, it looks cheap and dated. Also, I hate the bag. NM4T striking out so far.

    • FloridaLlamaLover

      Yikes! Cheap is correct.  The seams are all puckery.  Target’s dresses don’t usually have those, and that’s Target.

  • The purse is superbly heinous. Wow. 

    • pokokpuding

       What is it about this purse that brings the particular word “heinous” to mind? Because I saw it and thought, “Heinous.”

  • alyce1213

    Damn, is she wearing this backwards?  What a weird Pucci.  I really hate it.
    It’s giving me flashbacks of Lindsay Lohan’s dirty ivory satin dress last week.*

    *And I don’t normally hate nice ivory satin.

    •  It really does look backwards now that you say it. Even room for a butt.

    • gabbilevy

      Actually (again, different fabric, color) this would look *great* backwards, with the front as simple as can be. C’mon Pucci, ask the Bitter Kittens before releasing these dresses into the wild. We’ll help you avoid these mistakes.

    • MidArmJewel

      Maybe she’s channeling Kris Kross from back in the day.

  • random_poster

    Cheap looking dress.  Yuck!

  • filmcricket

    Satin pillowcase.

  • ojosazules

    It looks like her mother made it for her.

    • Monabel

      Hey, on behalf of her mother, I resent that!

  • Nope. Maybe in normal lighting, but here. She looks like a photographer’s bounce flash umbrella.

    • mjude


  • Oh no. I can’t with that fabric. 

  • NDC_IPCentral

    I exclaimed, in a disgusted tone, “Oh God.”  And I should be working here at IP Central.  Fie on you, Ms. Bosworth, for intruding on earnest legal work.  Especially when looking like this.

  • frannyprof

    She is at the top of my “Celebrities I Irrationally Hate” list.

  • Judy_J

    That dress looks cheap, and the skirt looks like it’s being worn backwards.  She looks supremely uncomfortable.

  • I hate that purse. WTH? That looks like a Claire’s purse.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    yes, to everything already said.  Plus…. Exhale, Kate.  You’re going to be going blue soon!

  • I’ll consider this for my hurried fourth marriage.

    • That would the one after the weekend long bender in Reno, right?

  • B_C_J

    Ghastly! It looks cheap and awkward especially because it looks like she accidentally put the dress on backwards. Her hair also looks lifeless. 

    • l_c_ann

      The backwards skirt does stand out, doesn’t it?  (In a chip way.)

  • kimmeister

    I marvel at the level of designer that is contributing to the T+NM line, but so far I’m wishing their end product was more appealing.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    she looks like a bored bridesmaid who’s hoping to hook up with one of the groomsmen..purse looks suitable for a third grader playing dressup….

  • Please tell us about Leighton Meester’s emerald green dress!

  • No. Hate the dress. Hate the way it’s accessorized.

  • crash1212

    White satin? NO. Just….no. I don’t even like the bag. This is icky….that would be a technical term.

  • H2olovngrl

    Needs a belt.

  • marilyn

    She  probably looks so tense because she knows the dress stinks.  White satin is fine for bridal, but this dress has no shape or design to it.  Poor girl. 

    Again:  NM and Target?  Really????

  • Sara__B

    Not only is the dress unattractive, but it does nothing to flatter the wearer. What was she thinking?

  • bertkeeter

    Actually like the fabric n color…but looks like she did her own alterations!

  • She looks like she hates what she’s wearing. And I kind of hate it too. 

  • teensmom99

    This looks like someone’s sewing project.  That is all.

  • LeifBallard

    I really like this look…but a tad too shinny for me.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Man, that looks cheap. And she looks like death warmed over. What is going on with her? I never see her actually acting anymore, just showing up at events in borrowed clothes and looking like she’s about to be blown over by a slight breeze. 

  • What a terrible fabric choice. It looks incredibly cheap.

  • guest2visits

    I think she’s looking very pretty – but I don’t like the dress very much. 
    Cuz white satin (or faux satin) is a difficult fabric, it shows every lump, pucker, wrinkle and bulge; even when there aren’t any.
    The dress looks a little messy, a little cheap; but I think that is the fault of the fabric.

  • victoria rodeno

    Too skinny ugly. Looks like a coat hanger. Feed that girl a cheeseburger. 

  • It absolutely looks as if she has it on backwards.

  • Is her skirt on sideways? You can see the seam and everything.

  • quiltrx

    I agree with those who said this doesn’t look well-constructed.  And the color is in Lohan-Dirty-Pillowcase territory.

  • Miss_Led

    Wrinkled, tight and shiny.

  • Monabel

    The dress is too small. The cheekbones are too big.

  • nannypoo

    Why is everyone complaining about her purse when her dress is so hideous? It seems to me that her purse is the least of her problems. Since there is a slit and room for a butt in the front of the skirt, it’s’ clear that she’s wearing it backwards. Then we have the cheap fabric, the home ec class seaming and the stretchy insert in the bodice, all adding up to a really crappy fashion experience.

  • I hear a chorus of chicks all singing “cheap cheap cheap”…..Jesus Mary and Emilio, this is awful.  Worse, I think Kate KNOWS it’s awful, and that is a sickening feeling.

  • Jackie4g

    That dress looks awfully short waisted on her, even if it is supposed to be a raised waist detail, that vee seam hits her in a odd place. The bag is Not Good.

  • decormaven

    The shiny fabric reflects light on the bones on her neck, and not in a good way. The white/black styling does her no favors, and with absence of jewelry or interesting shoes/purse, there’s nothing to commend this look. 

  • FloridaLlamaLover

    Forget Kate Bosworth: my brain froze upon reading “Target” + “Neiman Marcus.”  I think this is one of those matter colliding with anti-matter type situations.

  • thesixthbeatle

    Limp hair.

  • warnerave

    as bland as taylor swift..just sayin’

  • kat89

    When was the last time that Kate Bosworth actually acted in something? She should be grateful for any attention she’s getting instead of making faces.

  • julnyes

    It looks like she put it on backward.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    DOES SHE HAVE SOMETHING IN HER TEETH?  That woman needs to smile, dammit.  I am not loving that black bag and shoe combo. Did she have nothing else in her closet?  Also, the satin dress – how did she get it not to wrinkle?  Does someone walk behind her with a steamer or something?  

  • Carly Warnock

    eep. this is a low for her. i generally consider her fashionable. also, another ladystar in need of a bra. she’s too old to not have any support for those raisins.

  • Boring. Shiny. 

  • librarygrrl64

    It’s satin and yet she DOESN’T look like an unmade bed? That’s pretty impressive.
