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?

I have always stuck up for Mischa’s fashion, especially during fashion week, I just loved those dresses she would show up in. She’s a beautiful girl with long beautiful legs and only she can pull off looks like this. But if there is one thing I cannot stand about this whole look is…..those ankle boots. Gawd I hate ankle boots, I think they look so tacky when someone wears them with shorts or something. But I’m sticking with the rest of the crowd on this one, I think this fashion look is a definite DON’T. I think it looks hideous. Mischa is young and is always dressing her age, not some old sophisticated lady. Mischa keeps it light, airy and fun with her outfits, which she should, because she’s not 30 years old. I say no to this outfit though, but I look forward to what she wears next.

Ok, her style has been a little off lately, but as an Aussie, I love that she is wearing a skirt by an Aussie designer! I think she could have made that outfit a bit more tolerable without the boots cos they really cut off her long legs. If you had all seen designer Alice MacCall’s show, the skirt actually looks fabulous, fresh and different, which is what Australian fashion is about. If only Mischa wore it better!

Her character on The O.C. died — and now her fashion sense has, too!

I’ve never been a fan of Mischa and I definately don’t think this outfit does her justice. It seems like she’s fabulous when it comes to dressing for parties and award ceremonies but for normal everyday clothes, she’s a little out there.

Oh and she has fabulous hair… I’m so envious! ;)

I don’t think she thought this outfit through!

Thank God she’s tall which makes her look a tiny bit less awful in that outfit!!!

She must have bought her Halloween costume early!

A hot mess!!!

I think that Mischa is such a cute girl – but who the heck taught this girl to dress? I know she’s supposedly a “fashionista” – I JUST DON’T SEE IT!!!! She’s pretty for a petite girl, but I just think she could show it better!
