Mischa Barton Page 1
Ten years ago today, The OC debuted and it totally has us reminiscing for the days when we were positive that Mischa Barton had a long and fruitful career ahead of her. Yes, we were young and naive, and that’s why this TV show introduced us to many things that characterized our middle school years. We swooned over Ryan Atwood, quoted Seth Cohen (while crushing hard on him too, duh), imitated Summer Roberts’ sass, and lusted after Marissa Cooper’s closet.
Mischa Barton never really disappoints us when it comes to style and beauty. But, she may have missed the mark this time.
While The Bling Ring’s most famous victim, Paris Hilton, didn’t waste a second jumping on the film’s press bandwagon, other targets of the troop of young thieves — including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, and Rachel Bilson — aren’t too happy with the light the film sheds on the string of 2009 robberies. And now Bilson has spoken out against Sofia Coppola’s glamorized portrayal of the high profile larcenies.
Guess sometimes it’s just a cobalt kinda day. That was certainly the case yesterday at this Hollywood screening of Isla Fisher’s new film Now You See Me, where the red carpet was turned many shades of blue (albeit not quite 50) by the guests’ ensembles.
Mischa Barton hasn’t had the best luck on the red carpet — remember that flapper helmet? — which is why she’s finally enlisted the services of celebrity stylist June Ambrose, on whose upcoming reality show she’ll also be appearing.
First Lindsay Lohan had a modeling gig with Fornarina. Then came her ill-fated stint as creative director of Ungaro. Then she got her own line of leggings. Then came the shoes, which sadly, no one remembers. At every turn, Lindsay Lohan’s involvement in a smattering of fashion businesses has turned into embarrassing headlines — none of which are more embarrassing than the ones she generates on her own. So we’re legitimately shocked to learn that the fumbling actress just got hired to be the face of another brand.
Oh, dear. Mischa Barton went out on Sunday to watch the 1st Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic – a signature summer event from across the pond — and while celebs like Rachel Zoe and Minnie Driver managed to pull off vintage chic style with aplomb, Barton stumbled in her attempt to channel flapper fashion.
We love Miu Miu. And, to be honest, the more we look at this dress the more we realize it’s actually kind of cute. But in that very specific, hyper-idealized way in that no one other than Rachel Bilson — maybe — can pull it off. Which is why we’re trying to figure out what Mischa Barton was thinking when she put this on and left the house.
Pardon us for beating a dead horse — erm, zebra — but when we discovered these shots from Mischa Barton‘s latest modeling effort we couldn’t help but blow our photoshop vuvuzela. Barton appears in a new campaign for German fashion designer Philipp Plein and no matter your opinion of the actress and her career, the images are pretty startling.
With all the furor and controversy surrounding Michael Hastings‘ profile of General Stanley McChrystal in Rolling Stone, we never thought we’d find an angle that would fall under Styleite’s, um, area of expertise. But you know what they say: behind every good journalist, there’s a family member who works in fashion.
Mischa Barton hasn’t had the best luck lately. She can’t seem to get (or keep) an acting gig and she’s been making no small number of no good and very bad sartorial decisions. Which is why we were so surprised to see that bridal designer Rosa Clara had flown Ms. Barton out to Barcelona so that the troubled actress could walk in her fashion show.
We’re just going to get right to the point here: these are the worst shorts we have ever seen. This isn’t anything against Mischa Barton herself — she’s a beautiful woman and she has a very awesome car (see inside) — but these shorts, paired with these shoes, paired with both of these sweaters, make for one of the least-flattering outfits we have ever seen.

Nothing brings the party girls out of, um, rehab like a good, old fashioned birthday party. So you better believe any washed up “It Girl” worth her bedraggled roots was out with bells on to celebrate Nylon Magazine’s 11th year. Because what says “we’re totally current” better than a bevy of past their prime party girls? Especially, when they’re led by the poster girl of all things dishevelled and tragic: Lindsay Lohan.
Mischa, Mischa, Mischa. What can we say?
Once upon a time, we’d tune into the O.C. obsessively every week and crave your media mentions so that we could drool over your outfits. Chanel and Chloe were regulars of your wardrobe. You looked impeccable, clean, and put together — even when you were sporting your more casual L.A. look. On and off screen, we wanted to be you. And now there’s this.
This month marks Elle’s Work and Power issue, and many will wonder why the magazine opted for a just-out-of-her-teens superstar. While Taylor Swift is undeniably popular, would it not have made more sense to put someone a little, well, older on the cover? Maybe someone who could, at the very least, legally have a happy-hour cocktail?
