I love Kate Bosworth. I think she has that certain something — or what the French people call je ne sais quoi — that gives her charisma and allows her to pull off just about any outfit on the planet. Her track record on and off the red carpet — sartorially speaking — is spotless and faultless. That is, up until Wednesday night at a party held in London.
Perhaps I was expecting more from the Blue Crush actress considering her reputation, but I seriously thought she failed to impress in the printed dress she wore for the evening. It was a simple shift with a halter neckline, an empire waist, and an above-the-knee hemline — a silhouette meant to flatter, if you think about it — but sadly, the print literally did her no favors.

What do you think, ladies? Did Kate Bosworth fail to impress in that dress?
This is a first for the renowned stylista, and I must say, even with an unflattering print, she still looks like a queen. Yes?
After all, everything but the dress is on-point here. Her jewelry, the makeup, the hair, the skin, the purse, and of course, the heels — they all deserve a thumbs up.
Kate’s dress is from Erdem’s spring 2016 collection. I couldn’t find any information on her purse, but her shoes appear to be from Gianvito Rossi. They look very similar to the pumps I found at Barneys seasons ago:

They’re crafted from black suede, feature double ankle-wrap straps, pointed toes, and 4-inch-tall heels. The shoes are from the labels’ fall 2012 collection so they’re no longer available.
If you fancy the double ankle wrap silhouette, a good alternative to consider would be the “Leyan” pumps from Manolo Blahnik. They come in a d’Orsay style, which I think is a lot sexier. They are also on sale at $519.
