Kate Bosworth In Valentino – 2012 Spotlight Initiative Gala Awards Dinner

Kate Bosworth was honoured at the 2012 Spotlight Initiative Gala Awards Dinner during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday night in Park City, Utah.

Many of you stated that she was overdressed for this festival wearing an Antonio Berardi dress for a premiere, but I’m sure you will agree that this Valentino Spring 2012 dress is perfect for a gala dinner.

Her delicate black sheer and lace dress with a black velvet floral accented waistband was teamed with black Valentino pumps with an embellished heel from the Fall 2011 collection.

She wore her hair back in a ponytail again and accessorized with a JewelMint ring.

Neutral makeup completed her look.

Did she get it right or is she still overdress for a Sundance Film Festival event?

    Dressed perfectly appropriate for the event but still standing inappropriately – seriously, what´s with her pose…these awful spread-apart turned in feet(!). Simple lovely earrings and better support for her tiny bust would´ve been nice.

      i hate the way she poses with her feet it.

      i love the dress but is pretty much the same dress she wore to the French film festival last year, which is boring.

      there are so many dresses to pick from!!

      i saw other pics of this event not that many people dressed up. most were smart casual. it didnt look like your typical Gala. some were in jeans.

      but she did get an award so i would dress up too.

    There were other who had dressed up a bit for this occasion too.

    There were other people dressed up so this ok. It’s difficult to dress for occasion where some are scruffy, some are dressy. I think the dress is pretty and the relatively simple face goes well.

    I feel like I’ve seen her wear something like this before. It might have been in a another color though. But the shape is super familiar. And yea, I have to agree, really bad pose there. She does these super awkward slouches that are so obviously done on purpose (I’m thinking of one where she’s wearing a colorful print sweater at Sundance) her back is going to end up paying for it in about ten years.

    I think she is way overdressed. This event was like in someone’s basement, and in other pictures you can see all the other attendees wearing boots and sweaters.

    She looks way skinny here. Maybe it’s the pose the others have talked about. The model, who definitely looks healthier, is doing more justice to the dress IMO.

    Pretty dress, but I’ve not seen anyone else dressed like this at the festival. And yes, she needs to stop the pigeon toe pose. Where is the red dress she wore to the premier, where Lake wore the blue dress?

    Sucked in cheeks and pointy pumps – every singe time!! I do often like what she wears, but Kirsten Dunst’s longer version of this dress was better.

    Beautiful.

    It’s gothic but in a pretty, romantic way. Wish that she wouldn’t pose awkwardly like that :\
    Also, softer hair would look better.

    Her frame is distracting me from the dress– geez she looks gaunt! And very short, though some of that is camera angle. Looks/fits better on the taller, more shapely model, LOVE the look on the runway especially the barely there sandals.

    Too skinny – I’m so distracted by her gauntness, I can’t even see the dress.
