Would You Wear Mischa Barton's High-Waisted Jeans?

04/24/2007 at 01:04 PM ET

Are we really looking forward to an entire summer of stars in high-waisted pants? First Jessica Simpson stepped out in her ribcage-hugging pants, and now the ever eccentricly dressed Mischa Barton has taken to the streets of London, channeling the ’70s in seriously high-waisted jeans over a Fleetwood Mac t-shirt. Sadly, this isn’t the most flattering trend we’ve seen in a while — and here we were so excited for our wide-leg denim to be in style! Tell us: What do you think of Mischa’s high-waisted jeans? Would you wear them?

They look great, at least she is not a girl with no booty wearing pants that make you look like you have booty and I mean look. I think it is a great look for those that dont want there stomachs or targets showing…

I like it, most women are to shallow to like this. Again they must not have a figure to begin with. Pants now days are made for women without figure i.e skinny girls, asian girls, girls with flat board hips and no butt

Ok. I dig the retro 70’s look just as much as the next girl, but Mischa is reeeeaally skinny, and these pants make her look like she has stomach rolls (albeit small ones) and some bizarre creasing going on in other areas. If someone as tall and thin as Mischa can’t pull these off, the there’s NO hope for the rest of us.

And I agree with the comment about there being a happy medium between skinn jeans and these horrid things that’s more universally flattering.

These pants are horribile. They make her like twice her actual size. She just looks kida dopey and like her outfit came from a BAD thrift store

All I have to say is that these pants went out of style for a reason. They’re terribly unflattering, no matter what your build or size. I’m disgusted that celebrities insist on bringing everything back into style; some fashions are better left to rest in fashion hell.

Yeah…These comments are pretty apparent of how horrible these jeans are :) … and I agree with almost every one of them… these pants were trendy in 1977, not 2007.
