Mischa and Anna's night of wardrobe malfunctions


Last updated at 09:47 20 May 2007

It may have been a higher class of ladies' night than most. But the end result was just the same as what spills out of pubs and clubs across the land every night.

Actresses Mischa Barton and Anna Friel looked more than a little worse for wear as they emerged from Boujis nightclub, the favoured haunt of young socialites and Royals.

Only their companion Kate Middleton managed to maintain her poise after letting her hair down inside.

US actress Miss Barton, 21, who is studying drama at Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), was the last to leave - and so it showed.

It seemed she may have been partying a little too vigorously as her white open-fronted top fell apart, revealing a little more than it should have.

An onlooker said: "Mischa basically flashed her chest as she came out, but then it would be hard not to in a top like that."

She left the club with her hand tightly gripped by old Etonian and Tatler magazine editor Geordie Greig.

British-born Miss Barton, who was has also recently enjoyed a string of evenings out with Keira Knightley's ex-boyfriend, model Jamie Dornan, is best known for her role as Marissa Cooper in American series The O.C.

actor Lee Pace, looked in a similar state as she stumbled into a waiting taxi on
Thursday night.

The 30-year-old mother of one obviously needed some support, as she had to cling on
to Pace's jacket to prevent herself falling over.

And at one stage, rather embarrassingly, her floaty chiffon dress flew up in a gust of
wind, but her actor friend quickly caught its edge so preventing any further exposure.

The onlooker said: "Anna did look as if she had been enjoying a few drinks at the very
least. She was stumbling a lot as she left the club.

"She had been in there for hours, from about midnight until 3.30 in the morning.

He added: "Kate Middleton on the other hand looked very lady-like, even though
she spent almost as much time in the club as Anna.

"She left with her sister Pippa about 15 minutes before Anna did, and if she had
been drinking lots of alcohol, she certainly hid it very well."

Miss Middleton, 25, has wasted few opportunities to let her hair down following
her split with Prince William barely a month ago.

Perhaps the antics are not surprising, given the reputation of the South Kensington
venue, where a night out is always awash with expensive alcohol.

Last month 18-year-old Princess Beatrice was pictured leaving the club, bleary eyed
and unsteady on her feet.

The A level student had been enjoying a Friday night out (30 April) with her 24-year-old
boyfriend Dave Clark, who works in marketing.
