Luv the suit (I want 1), and I’m so glad 2 C her looking healthy again. She is such a pretty girl and has been looking much happier since she has a new beau.

I love this swimsuit and Kate is looking healthier. I don’t get it when People makes a big deal out of celebrities buying from “cheap” places. It’s ok when they go to the thrift stores and buy used.

If you are interested in London Street Fashion, take a look:

She’s so pretty. Even though she’s thin, she still has a really womanly shape — i.e. a bustline, hips. She looks nice. When I saw she’d gotten so thin in some pictures awhile back, I imagined the worst. But I guess things have worked out for her.

The suit is pretty, but I feel too immodest in a bikini (I know, ALL women’s bathing suits are somewhat immodest).

kate looks great!

I too think she looks great here, but why does she only feed herself if she has a boyfriend? After she and Orlando split up she was in all the headlines for being “Scary Skinny”. Now she has a new man and she’s eating again? Where is her self worth? What is up with that?

perhaps she has the kind of personality that craves control–meaning, when she feels out of control or unhappy (going through a breakup) she compensates by controlling what she can (her weight). a lot of women do this, and it is unfortunate. or maybe she was just depressed and lost her appetite.

i just hope no one was pressuring her to lose weight. actresses take a lot of flack from the public for being thin, but they don’t realize the pressure that is put on some of these girls to look that way.

i just hope she maintains the healthy look, boyfriend or not!

So glad to see Kate looking a little healthier and much happier lately! Love the bikini…. but not on this body.

Elda on

Good to see her looking healthy again.

Heather on

Actually I’m 99% sure this is a J. Crew bikini… but yes, very affordable.

Maryse on

I love that bikini! I’m gonna go check it out.

Kate looks much better these days. Much more healthier, and I’m so happy for her. She doesn’t need to look the way she looked before, she was VERY thin, almost sickly. She’s beautiful and doesn’t need to look the way she looked before.

Angie on

I think she look’s great nice and healthy, And I love the baithing suite

Amanda on

I love the bathing suit too, and I agree with everyone else. Kate looks great and more healthy now than she has in a long time. Go girl!!

Mari on

She could have more body… She’s skinny! Her body is ugly!

Melissa on

i love kate and its okay to be skinny. maybe not everyone has to be fat and chunky. skinny is classy too. im not saying anorexic skinny but she looks great and did evwen then. i am skinny myself and its very offensive when people say skinny is unatracted. fat is unnatractive in my opinion.

Stacy on

You know, people are never perfect…either too skinny or too fat…who cares…is ya’ll life that perfect that you can sit there and critize her for her problems. key word here is HER PROBLEMS…get a life…I bet if she would put on five more pounds people at that point wouild say OMG look at how fat she is getting…people are never happy. Look at your life, deal with yor problems.
By the way that swim suit is totally cute!

Chris on

Great choice, Kate. The style builds on her athletic image (circa Blue Crush) and looks expensive on her. It’s a very good photo, too.

Blair on

I don’t like her bikini.It’s 2 ordinary.And i don’t like her 2.Some people say that she’s the most beautiful girl they’ve ever seen.But i don’t believe them.Cause in my opinion she’s not beautiful, she’s just ugly 4 me, and a very cold person.

I love that suit and actually have one similar to it.

BellaBoo on

Hey Heather, it’s most definitely a Gap bikini and not a J Crew. I work at a Gap, I see that bikini everyday! It comes in a turquoise blue, too. As for the ladies complaining of it being to plain… Gap swim has been taking a more streamlined approach this season. There’s some with funky patterns, but this season it’s all about the hardware (ie the buckles in Kate’s, gold rings in others).
