Marissa Cooper, is that you? I can't believe my eyes! Did you come back from the grave to possess Mischa Barton's body and return her to her former glory? Seriously, I am so excited to see Mischa in her glowing, youthful self again after all those drugs, partying, yellow teeth, bleached blonde hair (see her appearance at Cannes) and weight issues. She looks exactly like she did during her O.C. heydays, slender legs, healthy body shape, natural blonde hair, rosy cheeks, structured cheekbones and all, as if the last five years never happened.
She's snapped here leaving Mahiki nightclub wearing a cream silk blouse paired with a bright yellow accordion pleat Willow skirt and matching Charlotte Olympia heels. Got to say I'm not a fan of the insect print (who would want to wear a shirt with cockroaches on it, I don't know), I suppose it's sort of quirky and 'out there' and does match the whole vibe of the outfit. Not too fussed because she's looking happy and healthy again, and I'm loving the accordion pleats, especially the layering (featured predominately at Magdalena Velevska's S/S collection at RAFW) which makes the skirt a little more interesting. She's killed two trends in one outfit: pleats and colour blocking. Yellow is a colour I've never really embraced, so to wear a yellow skirt and matching heels is a little risque in my eyes but she makes it work (it must be the blonde hair).
I hope this is the comeback of Mischa Barton, and I sincerely hope you're here to stay.
