What's On Kate Bosworth's Head?

11/06/2006 at 04:00 PM ET

We know that hats are usually part of traditional Derby Day outfits, but we are still a little confused by Kate Bosworth’s unusual headgear that she wore to the Victoria Derby Day in Melbourne, Australia over the weekend. We can’t help thinking that it looks an awful lot like something Cher would have worn in the 80’s, and it’s a little late for a Halloween costume. Tell us: What do you think of Kate Bosworth’s headpiece? Would you ever wear it?

ok, for those just noticing her different colored eyes, i just don’t know what to say about you. This condition is called, Heterochromia iridium. as for the headgear, it’s a very eccentric choice. i searched for other pictures to see the outfit in context. instyle magazine is spotlighting the whole look on their website today (11/7). in context, it looks better but it is definitely a fashion forward decision. you can tell that she is nervous about the look by her posture but it its interesting. the best news is that she looks healthier in that picture!

i think the point about her being in australia for the melburne cup where the taste is different and it is a tradition to wear something on your head is well taken. i can’t imagine her wearing a wide brim hat either. that would be too old for her. i admire the risk she is taking.

she is such a freak; i’ve never liked her. and that headpiece makes her look even more ridiculous!

Well, the idea is not a bad thing. I mean like one person said in India and in Pakistan, the middle part is known as a tikka, and with the beads going on the side, the whole piece is called a Bindi (different than the sticker you put on your forhead, that is also called a Bindi, but so is this). I wore one on my wedding, except it was gold and had red, green and gold beads on it. I think that her idea is nice, but it’s just a tad bit too big, and it doesn’t match. Maybe if she wore something a little smaller and a little less tacky, it wouldn’t have looked bad. She just needs to change it thats all…

By the way, SDC… the entire piece, inclusive of the beads on the side, is called a Maang Tikka, not a bindi. A bindi is solely the ornament – whether of kumkum powder or a decorative sticker- worn on a woman’s forehead.

you guys didn;t know she has a blue and a brown eye???? she was born with it!!!! and i agree, the head thing looks tacky…

Maybe she wanted to make everyone talk about something else for once…looks like it worked.

I first saw Kate when she was in the short-lived WB series Young Americans, and I absolutely LOVED her in Blue Crush. She was so confident and had the most gorgeous body. It’s sad to see her melt away to nothing. She looks so sullen lately and some of her recent fashion choices are frightening, including this headpiece. I wish I knew what was going on inside her head.

I like it on her. She’s young and hip….why not try funky things once in a while?
