How Would You Wear It? Mischa Barton

My heart goes out to Mischa who's been getting a lot of unneccesary flack for her body lately. But my heart does not go out to girls when they wear unflattering clothes that draw attention to their so-called problem areas.

The Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony floral corset top Mischa wore to the Event to Prevent benefit is lovely, but the wrinkled khaki mom pants? Not so much. The combination of high waist and tapered bottom does not work here. Instead, she should have worn a pair of high-waist dark jeans that are more slimming. Or, a black pencil skirt to keep with the alternative vibe. I do like her messenger bag, metallic heels, and layered jewelry, though.

How would YOU wear it?

Slimmer pants, same color okay and a little cute jacket to go over the top.

Those pants look like they're from the late 80s or early 90s. The top is far too short to do anything with but if I had to I'd wear it with a white skirt.

I disagree. The pants nip in at her waist, and flatter what curves she has the rest if the way down. altogether adorable.

I wouldn't wear either the top or pants, but only because it would look awful on me. For all the crap she gets about her body, it's definitely pretty good if she can pull off a look like this!

I wouldn't want to wear the top or the pants!

I usually Mischa's outfits!! But for this one I would lose the top and the pants! Both are quite ill-fitting. I would keep the bag though... :D

I personally would have worn it with a highwaisted black skirt... sheer black leggings and the burberry black studded platforms. you gotta make that top pop baby.

Hello 80's! No thank you :)

A funky pencil skirt would have made the top sexier.

I like it. and Mischa is young so she can get away with it (unfortunately, when comes to fashion, age is a huge factor).

I actually like what she's wearing. A little eccentric, but looks good on her nonetheless!

God I hate her personal style. Her ex-castmate Rachel Bilson dresses a million times better.

While I wouldn't wear those trousers, I think if she changed her top she could make it look more fashionable, and less of a time warp outfit

I love it! Other than the hair, I think she looks great : )

I don't know, I kinda think she looks cute. It's nothing I would wear but she is funky and spunky enough to pull it off.

I would trade the pants for the Alexander Wang khaki high-waist skirt (or tulip skirt?) Then I would definitely wear it.

i don't like the top either...i dunno, but to me it just screams tackiness.

I am really not a fan of hers whatsoever, but I agree that the top would have been better with maybe a pencil skirt or something? Those pants are horrifying. Did she not have a mirror?

I definitely would not be caught dead in pants like that! But I love her top.
