Mischa Barton Looks Better Than Ever During a Night at the Ballet

Mischa Barton walked the red carpet at the New York City Ballet's annual Spring Gala in Manhattan on Thursday. The actress stunned in a silk dress with matching floor-length jacket and looked smiley and happy while posing for photos. It's been a difficult few years for the former O.C. star, who recently filed a lawsuit against her mother, Nuala. News broke in April that Mischa's "greedy stage mother" posed as her talent manager and "schemed to defraud her unsuspecting victim." In 2013, Mischa opened up about her "full-on breakdown" four years earlier, which landed her in a Cedars-Sinai Medical Center psychiatric ward. Judging by her recent red carpet appearances and Instagram feed, it looks like Mischa's life and career could be looking up.

After attending the ballet event, Mischa took in a Noel Gallagher concert at Webster Hall in the East Village; she shared a photo of the marquee on Instagram, saying, "I'm pretty sure nights don't get better than this. This AND the ballet!! Are you joking me?!" Keep reading for more photos from Mischa's night out, and find out what all the former O.C. stars are up to now.
