Kate Bosworth still thinks about the “edgy” canary yellow dress she selected to wear to a party following the 2019 Oscars.

In an Instagram Live interview with make-up guru Charlotte Tilbury for her Charlotte’s Beauty Happy Hour series, the 37-year-old was asked to name the “iconic beauty moment” that changed her life.

And while the Blue Crush actress has had many stunning red carpet moments, it was her show-stopping sleeveless yellow gown by Vietnamese designer Cong Tri, which featured delicate embellishment and a sweeping train, that was at the top of her list.

“I wore this canary yellow dress for the Vanity Fair Oscars party, it’s a hard colour to wear,” Kate explained. “Any time I can skate the line to edgy I will. It’s a little tricky, but any time it works, it’s fun.”

Elsewhere in the Q&A session, the star shared her skincare ritual, and said she’s a huge fan of using at-home laser therapy treatments on her face.

“I use a handheld laser called Light Stim, it’s a handheld mask that emits red and blue frequencies. It’s really incredible, I use it all the time,” she noted.

Kate also revealed she is a devout sunscreen wearer and desperately seeks shade when out and about.

“I always protect my skin with sunscreen, I am always hiding under things when there is sun. I will take a baggy sweatshirt and drape it over my head!” the blonde beauty laughed.

Kate Bosworth is ready to hit the beach again for a follow-up to her 2002 film Blue Crush.

The actress, who portrayed a competitive surfer in the sports drama, is eager to re-join her co-stars Michelle Rodriguez and Sanoe Lake for a second instalment, revealing she has her own ideas for the sequel’s plot.

“I’m 100 per cent in for a Blue Crush reboot,” she told People magazine at a recent event. “I have thoughts on how to do it.”

Bosworth would also love a chance to bring back forthright female characters to the screen.

“What better time for a bada** female reboot. Why not now? That would be a dream,” the 36-year-old added. “I just love strong female characters, and I feel like right now it’s so important to see those strong female characters on screen. If I’m a part of something that inspires and it has longevity – that’s it for me.”

Blue Crush went on to gross over $40 million (£31 million) in the U.S., and a total of $51.8 million (£40 million) worldwide, with the flick receiving largely positive reviews.

Another movie, Blue Crush 2, debuted in 2011 as a direct-to-video release but was not connected to the original production and featured a different cast.

Since starring in Blue Crush, Bosworth has appeared in a string of films, including Superman Returns, Big Sur, and Still Alice.

Next up, she will appear as KC in Netflix series The I-Land, and is in the pre-production phases on The Devil Has a Name, a film about an oil matriarch who leaves the whole industry exposed when she attempts to outfight a bullish farmer whose water has been poisoned, and on action feature Force of Nature, which will be directed by her husband Michael Polish and is to co-star Mel Gibson.

Kate Bosworth has teamed up with bosses at Women In Film and the Chloe Wine Collection to launch a new campaign aimed at female moviemakers.

She Directed will fete women who work behind and in front of the camera, while a contest linked to the new initiative will offer female filmmakers the chance to win mentorship and money for their projects, according to Variety.

“I’m always a big fan of brands who put their money where their mouth is,” Bosworth says. “That’s really where you can start getting things out in front of people. Putting people in front of people that are going to start moving the dial and dialogue; it’s really going to make a difference.”

The Superman Returns actress is also looking to confront the issue she sees in Hollywood when male actors are cast before their female counterparts – even when the woman is the lead character.

“Ultimately, what it says to me is that we don’t matter as much as a different sex,” she adds. “You don’t have as much value is what that says to me, or you’re not important enough. And I think that’s the wrong message to be sending out to anyone.”

“There’s this misconception of women at the forefront of a movie – that that’s just a catastrophe, that’s never going to succeed, that it will be a box office failure,” she continues. “And we’re seeing, time and time again, that that’s just not the case. I never would have expected that for the 20 years I’ve been working I’ve heard we have to cast a male first, and now, I’m hearing so much in the world of, ‘We’re looking for female-forward material, we’re looking for women-led pieces’, and that’s very, very exciting.”

The campaign launches on Friday (22Feb19) at the 12th annual Women in Film Oscar Nominees Party in Los Angeles.

Aquaman dominating at New Year’s box office

Aquaman swam into the new year by hitting the $200 million (£159 million) mark at the North American box office.

The blockbuster, starring Jason Momoa, has been on top in North America for the past two weeks, and it earned a solid $16.7 million (£13.2 million) at cinemas on New Year’s Day alone to bring its 12-day total to $216.3 million (£172 million).

That puts the film ahead of other blockbusters like Superman Returns, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Batman Begins, Sherlock Holmes, and Venom over the same time period, and Aquaman will pass Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s 13-day total on Wednesday (02Jan19).

Box office experts predict Momoa’s film will match fellow DC Comics juggernaut Man of Steel, which snagged a $291 million (£231 million) North American total.

The film is well on its way to becoming one of the biggest global releases, thanks in part to a massive $277 million (£220 million) haul in China, where Aquaman is currently the fifth biggest Hollywood import behind Transformers: Age of Extinction, Avengers: Infinity War, Furious 7, and Fate of the Furious.

Aquaman has grossed over $790 million (£627 million) around the world so far, putting it on course to become the biggest DC Films movie – it is $80 million (£64 million) shy of tying The Dark Knight as the studio’s third biggest release.

According to Forbes, if Aquaman sails past the $1 billion mark, which is expected, it will become the first non-Disney/non-Universal movie to do so in almost five years.
