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?

Oh, my… Let this be the end of a trend that was wrong the first time it came around. “MOM” jeans suck.

So the pants are not so flattering. But I think high wasted skirts can be cute.

I think it’s sad that she’s as thin as a rail and these pants manage to make her look fat. How is anyone else supposed to buy into this trend when it makes you look that horrible? I feel bad for young hollywood, they’re so desperate to be different and “trendy,” that they’ll try anything, but they’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel with these pants.

i think her style is awful all the time and her stylist (if she has one) should be fired.

i think her style is awful ALL the time and her stylist (IF she has one) should be fired. if she doesn’t have one, she needs one BAD.

Love the pants. Used to wear them years ago. Way more flattering than low rise jeans which show your fat tummy off. As for Mischa…..I don’t think she is pretty at all. She needs a make over bad……

Some people can put on unique outfits and really get it right; however, Mischa seems to miss the mark again and again. She is trying too hard to be a trendsetter, and is doing herself no favors. These jeans are particularly unflattering to her thighs and hips, and, as with many of her other outfits, leave me feeling that if she didn’t have the fame and fortune that she possesses, very few people would even consider wearing the clothes she does.

I think Mischa is adorable no matter what, but I really don’t like these pants. I don’t think they’d look good on anyone. I think it’s crazy when designers try to bring something back that should just be left in the past. Never will I wear pants like this.

i never thought i would say this but mischa looks fat in those pants. these pants are unflattering in every way. if there not good for tall, thin celebrities who can possibly pull them off?
