Vanessa Bruno’s Stylish and Surreal Video Look Book Starring Kate Bosworth

Kate Bosworth green flares Vanessa Bruno

Hands down, Vanessa Bruno delivers THE coolest video look books. In the past, we’ve seen Lou Doillon playing drums in the jungle and shedding a tear while balancing on a wooden beam (uh-huh). But for Autumn / Winter 2011, the Parisian designer has recruited Kate Bosworth’s ethereal prettiness, sending the actress on a dreamy adventure from a bleak car park to snow-capped mountains, all to the rousing sound of Tchaikovsky.

Thanks to being in reversed slow-motion, we’re taking the film as a masterclass in Getting Dressed, the Bruno way. Begin with emerald green velvet flares and a crisp white shirt, pull on a slouchy hat, grab a fitted blazer and finish off with a snug, ankle-biting coat.

OR for frolicking in a fairytale forest and gliding over a lake, channel medieval princesses with a floaty peasant smock under a fur cape. Hmm, yes please.

Oh, and did we mention Kate has a fierce alter-ego, appearing on a white horse wearing a metallic brocade long-sleeved top with a tartan mini-skirt? The knight in shining armour with a twist, perhaps?

And finally, Kate’s back in a white blouse, chunky boots and head scarf for the romantic climax when, you guessed it, she cries. Is a gorgeous outfit nothing without a tear drop, Ms Bruno?

So what’s YOUR verdict on K-Bos - the ‘fashionista disguised as an actress’ - as Vanessa Bruno’s new muse? Although we’ve become quite accustomed to Doillon as the flawless Frenchy fit, we reckon Kate is a great candidate for showcasing the designer's Russian-esque A/W '11 collection. Her white-blonde hair is centre-parted and pulled into a low ballerina bun, her two-tone eyes are mesmerising, and her skin is as fresh and glowy as a morning sunrise.

If that sounds mushy, we just don’t care. Click play below and we defy you not to feel the love - or should that be LØV?
