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.

Hayden is such a doll. Yes, I wore a skirt as a tube top dress once, and no one ever suspected a thing, not even my friends, until I was getting tons of compliments from them and I told them. I love the color purple, and the color looks great on Hayden. I like the gold accessories too, the gold hoop earrings, the gold buttons on the dress, and the shoes tie in perfectly with the dress. Purple and gold are great colors that go together.
