Mischa Barton attendedÂ Marc Jacobs' fragrance launchÂ on Thursday night at Harvey Nichols in London. The actressâ€™ look was much improved from her recent appearances. She wore an interesting black number with a nude skirt and ruffles on each hip. While the success of the outfit is questionable, her hair and make-up fared better.
At the party, Mischaâ€™s disheveled updo and smoky eye were a far cry from recent pictures of her with a wan look, pale coloring and unkempt hair. Gossip blogger Perez Hilton took to calling the actress a, â€œghost,â€ among other names. She was also called out for her belly-baring tops, super bright yellow pants and other outfits that didnâ€˜t show her figure in the best light. Showing she didnâ€™t lack a sense of humor, Mischa defended those yellow trousers with the words, â€œdonâ€™t hate on my banana pants!â€
The actress hasnâ€™t quite got her footing back, career-wise, since a string of unsuccessful movies, a DUI arrest in 2007 and an incident last year that led to a psychiatric hold in an LA hospital. Hopefully, this latest appearance signals a brighter phase for the 24 year old.
