In January 2016, fashionistas Jessica Alba, Jaime King, and The Rules of Attraction actress Kate Bosworth gave us a sneak peek at a new affordable clothing collection while attending the Who What Wear x Target Launch Party held at ArtBeam in New York City.

14 years earlier, Kate portrayed Kelly, a girl who sleeps with drug dealer Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek) in the filmization of The Rules of Attraction.

She co-starred with James Van Der Beek, Shannyn Sossamon, Ian Somerhalder, Jessica Biel, and Kip Pardue.

The black comedy-drama film is based on Bret Easton Ellis’ 1987 novel of the same name that you can buy on Amazon. Filmed at the University of Redlands, a private university headquartered in Redlands, California, the plot takes place at the fictional Camden College in New Hampshire.

While all three of these beauties definitely won some style points for their ensembles at the launch party, we couldn’t keep our eyes off Kate in her sleek and classic LBD, thigh-high suede boots, and surprisingly-cute fanny pack.

The then 33-year-old actress and model looked bold and glamorous on the black and white carpet before the event.

Her demure t-shirt style LBD could easily be considered too plain if it weren’t for the playful addition of a fanny pack at her waist.

She ditched a clutch with the explanation that “you can hardly fit an iPhone in a clutch anymore.”

“I haven’t worn a fanny pack since the late eighties, but I thought Who What Wear did a great job of keeping it minimal and chic,” Kate confessed. We have to agree with Kate on this one, she totally rocked this throwback look!

Kate styled her platinum locks with a middle part and soft waves that fell past her shoulders.

The actress went minimal on all fronts by wearing little makeup save for a touch of shimmer on her eyes and a neutral pink lip.

To complete the outfit, Kate chose a pair of black suede Stuart Weitzman “Highland” boots

These thigh-high boots feature 3.25-inch heels, leg-hugging lycra and stretch suede fabric, and rubber soles. We think these classic boots perfectly rounded out Kate’s simple, yet chic ensemble.

The Stuart Weitzman boots Kate wore are some of this season’s hottest. You can find a pair for yourself at Nordstrom and Zappos.
