Cranky Beauty Pants: Kate Bosworth


Congrats to Kate Bosworth on covering the January 2011 issue of shopping magazine Lucky. This cover has been bugging me since my copy arrived in the mail a few weeks ago, but, until now, I couldn't quite put my finger on why.

Kate is 27 and, according to, we're going to be seeing a lot of her in 2011 and beyond. That said, none of these movies on her filmography is anything I'm wildly anticipating. In one, Little Birds, she may play (let's face it, I don't care enough to research the heck out of this) a teenager who runs away to LA. That may explain this cover, for which she's been photoshopped to look, well, younger than her 27 years.

So why did she score the cover? For her new jewelery-by-subscription service, JewelMint, of course. For $30 USd a month she'll ship you a piece of jewelery inspired by vintage costume jewelery designed by her and her stylist. While she can update jewelery from another era, help you select it over the interweb and send it to your house, science still hasn't figured out how to go back in time and pull her hair into a cute ponytail instead of this. How great would a low side pony have been?

Alas, we'll never know.
