How Would You Wear It? Mischa Barton

Who is this matron and what has she done with the sassy Mischa Barton? I've always known that Mischa is capable of making fashion faux pas, but this is pure insanity! At the Closing the Ring UK premiere, it appears the actress is having an identity crisis.

The only thing I applaud Mischa for are her studded, Louboutin Mary Janes. Other than that, I'd save the bow-tie blouse for a luncheon and the poofy black-taffeta skirt for a Halloween costume. She should have simply chosen a more age-appropriate dress. Perhaps she can take some pointers from her former O.C. co-star Rachel Bilson.

How would you wear it?

That top would be super hot (possibly untucked?) with a leather mini. Take a look at the waist part, use your imagination, and tell me it's not promising. She's tall and willowy, but this skirt as is actually manages to make MISCHA BARTON look short and dumpy. I didn't think it was possible.

Separately, each piece is amazing. Together they are a disaster. I would wear the top with jeans or drainpipe pants (in black). The skirt just needs a top that is not as voluminous; a tank or even a t-shirt would look better. And those shoes are my favorite shoes, I like them more in creme with gold studs, but they are incredible.

If you had to keep one thing, the skirt is "different". The shirt doesn't fit the skirt's proportions. I agree with those who said that she should have worn a tighter shirt. The hair is too big. Maybe she did that to balance out the puffiness of the skirt. Sleek hair, a sequins top would really make this outfit better. I think she should add color. Maybe in the top or with a bag. I also want to comment on her makeup. It's horrible. She looks really old. The foundation color really washes her out. She should have bright lips. It's all washed out.

That outfit looks like something out of Dynasty. I wonder if the Alexis Carrington look is her new inspiration?

I like the pieces of the outfit separately, and it could have been done a right way (plus_2_kid had some good ideas) but the big problem with the whole thing is it makes her look completely disproportionate.

she looks horrid. she has always had bad style, but seriously - this has to be a joke!

So over-styled. Look how the studded shoes pick out the studs on the blouse top. Maybe if the skirt was a satiny, softly pleated and triangle shaped skater skirt. But then Mischa's calves often stay more covered up. At least it's something different. Though I think she should get her roots/hair colour sorted out a little.

i agree with plus 2 kid. a tank top would work better than this. at least something form fitting. that has to be the ugliest shirt in the entire world.

No. Just no. I think the hair is the worse of all of those choices. It looks like she curled her hair and then brushed them all out and greased it down. As suggested before that blouse should be burned, and at the very least the skirt might look better shorter and all one length. The shoes are actually cute. I like mary Jane's. But with this outfit, shoes will not come to the rescue.
