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?

I just don’t get why Mischa Barton has ever been referred to as a fashionista. Everything I see her in is like “Worst of the 80’s”. I mean every single picture. She does whatever she can to emphasize her most awkward features and just never looks classic or well tailored.

Anne, you lyook *mahvelous*.

The footless toghts are AWFUL, why do people keep wearing them with everything?!

Whoever has Rachel Zoe as a stylist MUST FIRE HER!She doesn’t even dress nicely herself so who would hire her as a stylist?!

they both look amazing. i love anne’s classic looks and dark hair, and at the same time, mischa’s edgy, rock/glam look totally works wonders for her!!!

Ann’s dress is gorgeous. Misch, who usually dresses very fashionable, looks like she got dressed in the dark, not deciding to the last moment what styke she’s going for. She had a great bod but looks deformed in the dress.

Again, Mischa Barton the no job walking around like a bum. AAAHHHHH enough! When the stylists put ungly clothes on their people they call it edgy, why can’t they accept it is just UGLY.
On the otherhand, most picture i see of Anne Hathaway are of her dressed beautifully. Why doesn’t she get mush attention? Is it because she actually has a job and goes to work so she doesn’t have the drama?
Let’s hear it for a young actress with taste! Way to go Anne!

Rachel Zoe, hmmm… I haven’t seen this girl put any of her clients (Nicole Richie, L. Lohan) together nicely. Of course she likes Micha’s dress. It doesn’t even look like Micha and Anne are attending the same event! Anne looks fabulous! Micha looks like a fashion victim with too many looks goin’ at once. The leggings, the bubble skirt, the one shoulder stunt, it’s…bleeeech!
