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?

Clearly another woman in desperate need of mirror! I don’t care for her taste to begin with, but these really are worse than her usual faux pas fashion.

Jordyn on

What the hell is she wearing??? She looks like she shopps at the goodwill for the challenged!! She can’t put an outfit together if her life depended on it!

Rachel on

Yeah…her style is not great. It seems as though she is always trying to wear the things that are in style, but somehow she messes up. Get a stylist Girl! Many girls would love to have her figure…she should do it more justice.

Mandy on

OK! Mischa, tone those legs, get some sun and some rest, girl!

Daisy on

Yeah, it’s so funny because I thought I was the only one who was thinking that every time I saw her in a mag she looked really odd! What’s going on? Have a word to her, Rachel Zoe.

Mandi on

I think she looks terrible…she should have stayed on “The OC”

Annabell on

Why does Mischa wear those horrible and baggy clothes, she is so thin and fragile looking and she wears clothes that are made for people that weigh a good 20 pounds more than her.She isn’t 4 years old any more she needs to stop wearing those pathetic diapers

courteney on

her style sense is pathetic. all that money and you cant even hire someone to make you look good. what a waste. but then again shes not that attractive so what ever you put her in it needs to be stunning to help her.

debbie on

I guess those are designer clothes, but these clothes look like she rolled out of bed in the trailer park, threw on wrinkled clothes…and here she is! The makeup also makes her looke like she is sick! Maybe she has been spending too much time with her friend Nicole Richie and some of Nicole’s anorexia/bulima/possible drug use has rubbed off on her! I thought that these celebrities have stylists and makeup artists to help them…maybe it is time to get a refund!!

Alison on

She’s a pretty girl who tries too hard and is out of touch living in LA.
