LONDON – “Oh my gosh, you look so hot! I want some of that,” Kate Bosworth gushed to her pal Vanessa Bruno, whose long, suntanned legs were clad in black shorts and thigh-high boots on Thursday night.
Bruno hosted a small dinner in honor of Bosworth in the private dining room at The Wolseley, with guests including Bosworth’s new beau, film director and producer Michael Polish.
“She really understands a woman’s sexuality, and her strength,” said Bosworth, who stars in a silent, melancholy fashion film promoting Bruno’s fall collection. It was shot in the Slovenian countryside, where Bosworth can be seen sailing, riding a horse, and running backward – and forward – at breakneck speed.
Bosworth said she loved the location: “It felt like ‘The Sound of Music’ to me, with the sugar-powder mountains in the background,” said Bosworth, who did all the stunts herself, “other than the back flips and crazy acrobatics.”
Bruno, who calls the film a “visual poem,” has been a busy lady. This month she’s opening stores in Madrid and Cannes. She also recently designed her first children’s wear collection for La Redoute’s fall catalogue.
