Mischa Barton: Fashion Forward or Faux Pas?

10/06/2006 at 03:03 PM ET

Oh, Mischa. What has happened to the former fashionista? Her funky fashion choices have gotten more and more out-there since returning to the states from a summer abroad. Here are our votes for her most off-beat moments of the past month.

1. Her infamous diaper shorts/torn tank top combo, worn while grocery shopping with pal Nicole Richie on Sept. 2.

2. Her oddly frumpy palm-panted romper (left), worn while running errands Los Angeles, Sept. 19.

3. Her abstract printed Miu Miu bubble dress (middle), which is oddly reminiscent of crinkled wrapping paper, worn to a Teen Vogue event, Sept. 20

4. Her droopy metallic shirt and skinny jeans combo (right), worn to stylist Rachel Zoe‘s birthday dinner, 9/24

5. Her punk-pumpkin outfit, complete with a politically charged t-shirt, worn while out and about in Los Angeles, 10/1.

Tell us: Is Mischa making fashion-forward statements or faux pas?

What is the big deal about this chick. she is always all over the tabloids. she is far from the prettiest or best dressed person I have seen. I don;t want to attack her but her claim to fame is acting i have only seen her in one movie when she was like 13 and heard she was on a show, other than that she is popular for nothing really. Enough of her already.

Actually she was on Fox’s The OC for some 3 seasons! She is pretty famous. I think when she has people dressing her (ie. on the show) she looks gorgeous but come on whats up with this look lately? I know she quit the OC and all but hasn’t she been earning money anywhere else? Can she afford non thrift store clothes? I love her as an actor but get a stylist please!

I dont like any of this outfits…they are just UGLY. I dont care if she is a trend setter, risk taker, fashionista, whatever, IS JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLY UGLY CLOTHES…and they do not flatter her at all. SORRY I LOVE FASHION…BUT THIS GIRL IS A FASHION VICTIM ALL THE WAY !

j on

i’m w/the others–ENOUGH of her. she’s NOT attractive, and she doesn’t have any taste!! please stop showing her so much!

Chrissy on

She looks tired and washed out here lately. I have never liked her style (except for when she was on the O.C), and for someone who has georgous hair; do something with it! Yes, she is model thin, but she needs to tone those legs of hers.

THANK YOU GUYS! I thought I was the only one. Mischa is NOT pretty, her body is gross. But not only that, SHE HAS ALWAYS DRESSED HORRIBLE!!! Why is she EVERYWHERE? Maybe I dont understand because I never watched the OC.

Sheri on

She looks HORRIBLE!! The only reason she’s getting away with it is because so many people like her. (From the O.C.)If she wasn’t in front of the camera and dressed like this, she would not fit in anywhere! Can’t she just put on some jeans and a PLAIN tank? I have no words for all of those outfits, they are ALL downright disastrous AND FUGLY!! (F***ING UGLY!)

i have absolutely no clue as to why mischa barton is hailed for her horrible fashion sense…she always wears mini dresses that look like oversized shirts…they don’t ever really flatter her at all…also, she wears a lot of “granny” clothing…yuck is all i have to say to what she wears

Shasha on

1 word ………UGLY! But I did enjoy the political tee

Kathleen on

I think Misha is AWESOME. Tho, these past pics of her are not her usual great taste that she usually has. I guess we all have bad moments or ideas. Still love her tho and ALWAYS LOVE THE PICS OF HER
