Best dressed of the week: Battle of Bosworth, Kate Conquers All

This week was a huge improvement style-wise from last week which was rather quiet and with fewer parties and little to report on.

This week however, has pretty much been all about Kate Bosworth who was out three nights in a row at various parties and dinners.


On thursday, she attended the Seventh on Sale Gala Dinner, as did Mary Kate, and wore one of the dresses from the SS08 Proenza Schouler collection, which made me very happy indeed. Naturally she carried it off with perfect grace and looked completely at ease, and made merealise just how perfect the piece is for her.


Kirsten Dunst made a return to the street this week, after what feels like months of being MIA with filming schedules. Wearing a girly sheer dress, Kiki looked as casual and street cool as ever, hopefully she's around to stay for a bit, as this issue of Lula Magazine hasmade me realise how much I "miss her".


Rachel Bilson wore a dress reminisent of that Brian Reyes dress that she wore last year, and verged on chav with oversize bling, but in a refreshing way.


Two people, who I was surprised by, and who I hesitated about featuring, purely because I've never talked about on Discotheque Confusion before are Keri Russell and Jessica "Yawn" Alba. Keri, kept things simple for her TRL appearance and went minimal and black. She looked radiant and ultra feminine in a wool black dress paired with dark tights and was very season-aware in PVC oxford booties. Julianne Moore also went to for a similar idea, though she was more adventurous in a frilled and pleated top, whichshe thankfully managed to pull off.

The reason for Alba? Though I find her hard to like, I thought the pairing of the Steve McQueen tee with the grey tulip skirt was very clever, and well, rather un-Albalike, and like Keri she opted for wooly tights and booties, a winning combination this winter.

Alba does look surprisingly chic! Kate is definitely bringing out all her fashion chops.

Kate looks good! And that last in the row dress she's wearing is just beautiful!!

And Kirsten is fashionable as ever. I actually like everything she's wearing. Except that sheer dress thing..

I love kirsten!!! Her style seems always so underrated, but she is amazing. Although the colours are very neutral, there is just something about the way she puts an outfit together.

Rachel Bilson always looks nice-she picks out frocks that flatter her height.

frocks...gotta love that word.

Jessica Alba is and will always be not very interesting at all. Unless she goes through a major transformation.

the seventh on sale dinner was so fab! my favourite outfit by far was ashleys white pillar dress. i adore your blog almost as much! xo

You know, people are always fawning over what these girls are wearing next. But do we take the time to stop and think that maybe they ask seven stylists for their opinions before they leave the house for a latte? "Oh, this old thing? I just rolled out of bed this morning and came out looking like this. Yeah, I fired my stylist ages ago."

Bullshiiiiiiiiiiiiiz.

Love the entry though.
