What To Do When Mischa Barton Steps On Your Dress

10/27/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

It’s not easy to walk down the red carpet with a long train on your dress, as Anne Hathaway learned when she donned this flowing Zac Posen gown to the Fashion Group’s Night of Stars event last night. “The biggest problem,” Hathaway told PEOPLE, “is not the train itself, but other people stepping on it.” And guess what? A moment later, Mischa Barton placed her stiletto heel on the back of Hathaway’s dress, didn’t notice and wasn’t moving. Hathaway turned politely and asked, “Sorry, Mischa, can I have my dress back?” Mischa lifted her foot and the two said hello. As for Barton’s dress, though not everyone loved her puffy, one-shouldered Bebe number, stylist Rachel Zoe, who was being honored that night, said it was “fabulous and edgy and gorgeous.” — Jeffrey Slomin

What do you think? Do you prefer Anne Hathaway’s classic gown, or Mischa Barton’s edgy dress?

A goth cupcake! Too funny.

Anne looks fabulous. Bubble-skirted dresses were cute in the 80s – on anyone under the age of six.

Is there any comparison?

Mischa should ditch the dress, stockings and shoes…and while she’s at it dump the rest of her wardrobe. She could do with hiring a new stylist or maybe just get a clue. She looks so bad.

Ann looks stunning.

I think that its ridiculous that we are picking apart these poor people. Mischa made a bad fashon mistake but she still looked beautiful, and Anne looked ah-mazing but either way i solute them for putting up with all this gossip~!!

I prefere Anne’s dress, it’s more feminine and more appropriate for an evening event or any more nobel ocassion. The dress that is wearing Mischa is for a party, I think that stars are sometimes exegerating with fashion – there can not be everything that is IN at the moment good to wear wherever they go…and I found out that most critics are positive about what celebs wear, although many of them are not having a good style. Like for example – black, brown, silver colors do not fit to each girl, woman, lady…there are different types and when this year everything is black or silver, grey, IN, it’s like THE FACTO, like this is now the only good think to wear. And in shop I can not see other colors – stupid.
Anyway, I like fashion, just in the way I chose close that really fit to me, to my personality, to my figure…

Anne always looks great. Mischa never does any more. I noticed a change when she became the “Bebe” rep. Maybe even a little before that. I know that “Bebe” is known for its unusal styles, however, not ever as unusal as Mischas new style is. She can be a very beautiful young lady if she could just find the correct clothes for herself.

Anne’s dress is gorgeous and elegant in royal blue, it also made her apear slim and tall. It matches very well with her, and I personally love a good train. But maybe it is a bit safe??

Mischa’s dress on the other hand, looks bulky and the thin footless tights are trashy looking. The bubble skirt did her no good as it made her look short and frumpy. I was gonna compliment on her shoe until I saw the hideos tie-up thing around her ankle. Although I do like her hair, make-up and jewelry.
