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?

I dont understand what it is about this girl. She is everywhere and not very pretty. She never knows how to dress and her taste in men is gross.

EVERYTIME I SEE THIS GIRL IN PICTURES SHE ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE SHE MADE NO EFFORT TO EVEN LOOK GOOD. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S LANKY AND TIRED ALL THE TIME. GET YOURSELF NEW WARDROBE AND A NEW LOOK!

i have read some earlier comments about her style looking good in europe. well this ain’t europe and her style is horrible!!!!! she is not a trend setter, fashionista, or anything else. she isn’t pretty and honestly she is down right homely looking. i don’t watch the OC and until someone made a comment about her being on the sixth sense several years ago, I didnt think she was much of anything….and i still don’t. the media is making a big deal out of nothing and no one. we need to start looking at people who have a real sense of fashion and out fits are on point every single time like Beyonce, jessica alba, kate hudson, heidi klum, jennifer aniston, and halle berry just to name a few.

What’s the big deal with her anyway…She is not attractive…Has poor posture…Why is she so focused upon lately?

Yeah, I can respect this being a message board to type our opinions about someone’s fashion and so forth…I think it’s highly shallow to say someone isn’t beautiful or attractive. This isn’t about how pretty she is, this is about her style sense. If you don’t like my opinion, take a flying leap, because I don’t care.

ABOUT her fashion sense, well, I loved her fashion style during fashion week a few weeks ago. I loved those dresses she wore. Do I like her clothes in these pictures? No, I wouldn’t wear them myself. She is young, and she likes to mix things up and be fun and forward. And whomever said this isn’t Europe…your saying that she shouldn’t be able to wear their sense of style over here in the U.S., WRONG, she can wear whatever she wants. Her money, her body, her mind, she can do whatever she chooses.

Just a show? She was the star of the hottest show on tv, past tense, because it will most likely be a suck fest without her. I applaud her for her risky fashion choices..sure she’s made some mistakes but it’s not like she’s asking for it by being on the red carpet wearing weird diaper shorts..she’s just grocery shopping!

I HATE michca, she wears the rankest clothes, i mean she is rich, tall, and could be beautiful and has really nice hair, why does she go around looking like that….please, she needs some help…

I think that Mischa has a good taste in fashion and she looks good (she’s not fat neither she’s skinny, but she’s healthly thin).
Of course she’s not Audrey Hepburn, but at least she tries different things and dresses better than most of American women do.

I LOVE MISCHA BARTON!
LEAVE HER ALONE!
she has good red carpet style :)
