Kate Bosworth flashes skin as she goes topless beneath leather jacket for cover shoot

Kate Bosworth has evolved into one of Hollywood's stylish women since her early 2000s claim to fame.

But it turns out the Blue Crush star wasn't always the effortlessly chic fashionista we've grown to love.

She recently went topless in a sexy shoot for her Elle Canada cover story, as she opened up about her introduction to style.

The 36-year-old cut a chic look on the cover in a white pantsuit, worn with the jacket open to reveal her taut tummy and décolletage.

She rocked the same style in a roomier brown suit with billowy pleated trousers, which she wore while lounging in a matching leather chair.

Bosworth also went topless in a black leather jacket with matching underwear as she struck a sultry pose on a leather couch.

Keeping with the theme, she revealed her bare torso once again in an open white dress shirt with high-waisted black trousers and a Valentino belt with a large gold buckle.

Bosworth revealed during her interview that before finding her sense of style, she 'wasn't cool' in high school. 

She said: 'My first introduction to fashion was not actually as an actress but as a young girl, through my dad. 

'He worked for a company that had the finest fabrics and textiles. He would pick up a tie and say: "Do you feel this? This is called cashmere." From a very early age, I really understood artisanal quality, but I wasn’t cool.'

She added: 'I was a beanpole in high school and felt so dorky. I lived in a small town, so the things available to me were, like, Gap, Old Navy and Claire’s. 

'When I moved to LA in my early 20s, I started to form my fashion identity. Now it has evolved into relationships with designers because I style myself. There’s a lot of joy for me in the intimacy of that process—it feels like creating a moment with a really good friend.'
