Fashion Multi-Tasker: Hayden Wears a Skirt as a Dress!

08/11/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


The Heroes star is turning into quite the fashionista both on the street and red carpet. While shopping in L.A. recently, Hayden Panettiere traded her little yellow dresses for a bright purple tube number. We loved the color and brass bottons on the top, so we had to track it down! After a little bit of hunting, we discovered that Hayden’s dress was actually a skirt! She isn’t the first fashion savvy starlet to try this trick –remeber Keira Knightley’s belted look from last summer? Hayden’s dress/skirt is actually the “Lena” high-waisted skirt from Tart’s fall line, which will be available soon at We actually like the way it looks as a dress — and a skirt! Talk about getting the most out of your shopping money. Tell us: Have you ever worn a skirt as a dress?

Want a tube “dress” like Hayden’s? Try this one at, $29, this one at, $20, or this one at, $20.

I would never say that what she’s wearing is a skirt, it looks too fine for a dress… very good Hayden

Hayden is such a cute girl with an awesome sense of style. I love this look exactly BECAUSE it looks like a dress. It’s genius! I recently tried the same style with a long, tight skirt with leggings and got more compliments than i did with an actual dress! Gotta love it!

Her “skirt” doesn’t even look like a skirt, it actually looks like a dress. I think she looks pretty. Nothing wrong with this picture.
