At the Cushnie et Ochs show I spotted one of my personal hair and style crushes: Kate Bosworth. Clad in a sleek Cushnie dress, the newly-engaged starlet looked even more gorgeous in real life, if you can believe that.
Naturally, I couldn’t wait to pick her brain on everything from what shows she’ll be attending this week, to if she’ll ever design her own line of clothing (hint: yes!). Read on to see what K.Bos had to say.
How many shows are you going to this season?
I’m doing five. I’m doing Prabal Gurung, Joseph Altuzarra, Olivier [Theyskens, for Theory] and the Proenza boys.
That’s a good lineup! I know you already design jewelry [for Jewelmint] but do you think you’ll ever get into designing clothing?
So, there is a line in the works?
Yeah, we’re talking about doing something. It’s just you know for me, obviously I understand how much work goes into [designing a line] and the kind of team that needs to come together to make something really great. So that’s really where my focus is right now, kind of looking into that.
If you could collaborate with any established designer now, who would it be?
Oh, that’s so difficult! I don’t know how to answer that really. What I will say is that I’m excited about this fashion week, because there’s so much wonderful, young talent, and I feel very fortunate to be able to have a front row seat to that kind of talent. And the other thing I’m incredibly impressed with is how they’re all conducting themselves. It’s hard to maintain a sense of integrity, and whether its the Cushnie girls, or the Proenza boys, who I’ve known for so long now, or Alex Wang, they’re really suportive to one another and I think as artists we really need to do that.
Okay, I have to sneak in one last question that’s kind of for my personal benefit. I’m obsessed with your hair. How do you get it to look so perfect yet so effortless?
I was going to say, I love your hair! It’s kind of the same. [I die of happiness.] No, but I just let it air dry. I really do. No product, nothing.
In short: Kate Bosworth is gorgeous, stylish, starting her own line and, most importantly, she likes my hair.
