What Was She Thinking? Mischa Barton's Early Halloween

10/03/2006 at 10:36 AM ET

Normally, we applaud Mischa Barton’s fashion daring — if any one can pull off a wacky look and still look beautiful, it’s usually her. But this outfit (left) leaves us scratching our heads and wondering if she just can’t wait the extra few weeks for Halloween. Is it just us or does that skirt/ankle boot combo look like the Great Pumpkin-goes-Punk? At least now we know the actress’s political stance, thanks to her Universal Mind t-shirt. Tell us: what do you think of Mischa’s look?

If there’s anyone who can pull off ankle boots with an orange high-waisted skirt, it’s the actress-with-a-model-build Mischa Barton. There is nothing that her long legs and lean torso cannot pull off– even the “diaper” and this orange skirt look good on her.

Who really cares?

Maybe she just wore the skirt and boots so that she would get attention to show off her statement tee, but wait then she probably wouldn’t have her hair covering the top word (DROP). Or am I giving her too much credit?

I don’t care for the get-up itself but, the tee shirt has something to say that should go on gaint billboards around the world and back plus, on all those memos/secret files those stupid politicans read! Governments should be run like a business!!!
Anyway, back to Mischa, she slouches way too much, her legs and arms look so flabby and weak, she needs a serious workout routine!
The shirts rocks, the skirt sucks, and those ankle boot have got to go!

I love it, because she’s taking a risk- treating herself as a canvas and expirimenting with new styles. She seems to be finding herself (in a fashion sense), and listening to her own needs, not to her stylist. That outfit is out of the common, especially in America where everything is so mainstream. Defenetly pushing the bounderies-love it!

What makes that skirt so awful are the oversized black buttons. Makes it look like a vest that went all wrong and ended up on her hips. More proof that celebrities will wear anything in order to get their photo taken. Remember: any publicity is good publicity. ;-)

Love the shirt. Could do without the boots. The skirt I think my mom worn in the early 80’s. But you know she has her own style and looks great in pretty much whatever.
