Mischa Barton: Fashion Multi-Tasker

03/27/2007 at 04:30 PM ET

Mischa Barton is due at a launch for Keds in less than an hour, so she’s multi tasking: “These onion rings are good,” she announces on my arrival at her Knightsbridge hotel suite, with an onion ring in one hand and a pair of Keds sneakers in the other. As ambassador for the sneaker line, Mischa is in town for the brand’s London launch. “I design as well,” she says as I sneak a look at her super skinny jeans and make-up free, dewy complexion with green envy. “I have some input – especially these sneakers with the hearts on them, they were inspired by me,” she says proudly. “They’re even going to be sold at Topshop which I thought was cool.” So how does her home town of London compare in the style stakes to her native New York? “I am a bit of a downtown girl because I live in Tribeca. I like the vintage shopping in New York. English style is sometimes more refined, it’s more about matching.” One quick change later, she reappears in a sparkly Miu Miu black dress and matching black Keds. I guess she is a Brit at heart! — Monique Jessen

Mischa doesn’t have the weight issue unlike most others. She is naturally slim and the legs are the result of her being active most of the time. BUT, please, leave the poor girl alone. She doesn’t need all of these negative cricism from us. She can dress whatever she wants to do. She’s a model and an actress and thats her life.

The dress she’s wearing in the poster ad for Keds is super cute, although I hate wording on any article of clothing, but the dress was for an ad she was doing for Keds.

I actually like her little black dress though. She looks much more put together, instead of frumpy and icky looking. The look isn’t horrible, it’s ok, better than the last red carpet pic I seen her in. I know she’s promoting Keds and all, but I would have loved to see a heel on her to bring the look and style of the dress together. I do love the Keds flat mary-jane looking shoe. Those are very cute, just not with that dress, IMO.

She has fat knees. Her legs are super skinny, but her knees look weird, chubby or something!?
I agree with everyones comments. Honestly, I don’t think she can do exercises to get rid of that, its just the way her legs are shaped. Trust me, I’m sure she works out plenty, she’s in Hollywood!!!
I know athletes who have cankles. There’s just nothing you can do about it. Not everybody is perfect I guess.
