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?

Those are the ugliest pants I have ever seen. I thought she was on set shooting some awful movie!!

I agree that Misha is one of the girls who should be wearing any new trend because she wants to look original but only highlighting that she lucks her own imagination. Beside, for some reason she wants to look very serious and for that she picks up only bizarre nerdy trends. I never saw her looking anything nearly stylish or even good looking. I guess she has tall figure and bad posture. She always looks awkward. She cannot even wear this poor trousers well this t-shirt, her hair – it is just a mess. And her constant sheepish smile….

Hate ’em. Wore them years ago…..actually I think I had something identical to them. Un-tuck too, YUCK

There is no way I’d wear those. Unless you are super-tiny they are going to make you look chubby. Not to mention they look like they would make it difficult to breathe or sit down!

Oh man… these jeans are so unflattering. The sides of her thighs look large, and we all know she isn’t. She definately looked better in the skinny jeans. I am built with more curves, so there is no way in hell or high-water I’d wear these. Seriously… I didn’t like the skinny jeans b/c you might as well wear leggings. I don’t like these b/c they truely aren’t flattering. Also, what is up with tucking in a t-shirt like that… is she really trying to add “fluff” to her tummy section? I understand not wanting to wear the flowy shirts and look half-pregnant, but this looks just so “old fashioned” in a not nice way.

No, these jeans look like they are from the 70’s and there are reasons we don’t dress in 70’s clothes anymore…they look terrible! Pants that fit at the waist can look great but this extreme high waist trend needs to be stopped. Camel toes aren’t hot anyway you look them! And as a side note yes Misha is original but she looks horrible 98% of the time.
