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?

That chunky thing on her head is seriously ugly…but then, I guess it exactly matches her 40year old face. Some people would do anything to get attention.

It’s usually known as the Melbourne Cup [Day = optional], not usually called Derby Day. Gah, every American site is calling it Derby Day.

I think she needs to put some caramel colour and some conditioner (mostly the conditioner!) in that hair. It’s looks so brittle, it looks painful. I do like the actual beaded headgear though…she looks very 1920’s.

Kate as a whole looked so much better when she first came out, not only did she have the athletic physique, but her hair color was more naturally looking (though i love the bob on her). Here the color seems really awkward compared to her skin complexion (she needs some low lites added and a ton of super rich/deep conditioning treatment, she also needs to be banned from any chemical process and dryers/irons bec. her hair looks like it could break with a slight breeze). She should wear her hair natural, without straightening it…too harsh for the color.
Now for her headgear. It’s an interesting piece. Not with her at that moment though. She should have worn one with a smaller piece in the middle, and with a black dress, and leave her hair curly. That would have looked better.

I don’t know what the hell that thing is or how she could look at it in the mirror and think “Hey this looks cool” but she seems happy about it so who really cares?
Everyone’s got their own style and it’s good to see someone trying something different for once. Then again you won’t see me rushing out to buy one of them…what the hell is it?

Okay, first- Kate Bosworth’s left eye is blue. Her right eye is about 2/3 to 3/4 blue with a patch of brown in it. (see here: http://img388.imageshack.us/img388/6344/kate2eo.jpg ) She has what is known as sectoral heterochromia, which is the rarer form.

Second, Jane Seymour has one green eye and one brown eye. No blue. She has complete heterochromia, which is the more common form of the condition.

Heterochromia (or heterochromia iridis/iridium) is either congenital, as with Kate Bosworth and Jane Seymour, or it is acquired, as with David Bowie.

Dear Dee, as you said…
“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 that comment…we can’t help it if you are so much more smarterer than the rest of us…golly gee, i wish i was as intelegunt as you.
That thing still looks like a spider trying to eat her face though.

Impo, Kate *was* at Derby Day, the actual Melbourne Cup Day is a different day altogether, they’re both part of the Spring Racing Carnival.

I think Kate looks fantastic. It’s great to see people doing something not safe.
