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?

Didn’t they kill her off? Maybe she’d still be on the O.C. if she dressed better.

I would have to say that she is the worst dresser I have seen yet. Everytime I see her, it looks as though her closet threw up on her. You would think with her salary, she could afford to have someone guide her in the right direction.

I think Mischa is stunning. I also thing these outfits are fun and experimental…excatly what fashion is supposed to be. Yes sometimes she doesn’t look as great as she could do, but I’m quite shocked at the amount of people that think she is unattractive and needs stunning clothes to help her along. I appreciate baeuty is in the eye of the beholder, but I’m sure if you were to actually see Mischa walking down the street, you would definately notice her and think what an attractive girl.

I don’t know what maria and fairytale are talking about or where in Europe they see someone wearing clothes like these. (Gladly) I haven’t seen people dressing like Mischa here in Europe…

she need to take course in fashion ..

Sandy on

AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL!!!! She thinks she is being such a trendsetter, but she looks like a homeless person. Every outfit I have seen her in is terrible. You’d think she’d be able to afford a stylist!

Sand Beach on

Its obvious that her style is as a result of sleep deprivation and malnutrition, she needs to eat and sleep to think logically about what to wear- her look is not happening !!!!!!

Emily Bouyear on

um, I think she has potential to be pretty cuz she’s got nice features and all, but even though I’m broke half the time I can still afford to look better than she does. It’s really sad.


Linda on

I am so glad someone else noticed how stranger and stranger she is getting. She looks like she has gone completely insane. With each new picture, she looks thinner, more sleep deprived, and wearing something more horrid.

Jeanette on

She looks horrible. Besides I never thought she was pretty but she looks worst than never before.
