Mischa Barton shows up in see through dress for Miss Sixty fashion week show

Miss Sixty Show Backstage Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Bryant Park

Mischa Barton is an attention whore. There’s no kinder or gentler way to put it, so it might as well just be said. She hasn’t had a single significant acting job since she was fired from “The O.C.” forever ago. Well… three years ago, which is forever in Hollywood. There’s several things I’ve never even heard of on her IMDB page (“Virgin Territory” anyone?), but mostly Mischa’s been making a name for herself by going the Paris Hilton route – being famous just for being famous. Oh, and her atrocious fashion sense.

So what else can you do to get people to pay attention to you? Well, not get a job, that’s for damn sure. So Mischa did the next best thing. When attending the Miss Sixty fashion week show, she wore a black dress that was completely see through under a photographer’s flash. And when the kind employees of Miss Sixty tried to find something for her to use to cover up, she ungraciously refused almost everything they offered.

You can lead a fashionista to couture, but you can’t make them wear it.

Only minutes before showtime, staffers backstage at Miss Sixty were in crisis mode—Mischa Barton’s dress was see-through.

Indeed, the O.C. starlet had arrived at the Fashion Week tents in Bryant Park wearing a thin, black frock that photographers’ flashbulbs would render transparent. Men and women working for the label immediately began scrambling to find something by the designer to drape over Barton, even taking clothes off their own backs and offering them to her.

“She’s a royal pain in the ass,” one staffer complained to another. “We sent all these clothes over and she ends up wearing nothing!”

She was selective, but wound up agreeing to a scarf that draped strategically over her shoulders. Thankfully, it was not the same scarf Kristen Bell was wearing, although that black, white and red accessory was about to be given to her when the potential faux pas was realized.

Zimbio reports that Mischa wasn’t just “selective,” but flat out “extremely picky.” Obviously Barton wanted the attention and headlines a naked dress would bring her. It had nothing to do with being finicky about fashion choices, as anyone with an ounce of class would probably tell you that showing your nipples is about the least fashionable and most tacky thing you could do. Not that tackiness ever stopped Mischa Barton. Nonetheless, thank goodness for that scarf.

Here’s Mischa at the Miss Sixty show on Sunday. Images thanks to WENN and Splash.

    They called her a “fashonista”? Maybe I just don’t know what the word means…

    She couldn’t have been to discerning on how classy she looked. Looks like she was rocking a pretty noticeable run in her pantyhose.

  2. barneslr says:

    Why is anyone writing about her? She is not a celebrity by any stretch. She is just someone who was on a show once a few years back. Completely irrelevant.

  3. Dani says:

    Mischa and Lindsay are looking increasingly alike. Toothpick thin with long scraggly auburn hair and horrendous roots grown out. Not to mention, their careers are down the drain so they use their bodies to keep attention. I guess I like Lindsay better. She seems more fun to party with.

  4. the other kate says:

    i don;t think her dress is that horrible – i’ve seen worse. and usually on goopeth paltrow.

  5. TinaWithPom says:

    The girl’s a wreck to look at. At this point, she might as well sign up as a contestant for Paris Hilton’s BBF show.

  6. MoJo says:

    I’ve definitely seen worse. Just on her alone.

    Having been one of the three people who have actually bothered to watching Virgin Territory (oh, what? Matthew Rhys is in it, and he’s lovely!), I have to say that, wow, she’s a terrible actress, and there’s a reason she’s not getting jobs. (Yeah, what else is new?) She couldn’t even do a proper English accent, which is odd because Im pretty sure she used to have one.

    god, is this bitch still alive?

  8. Blanche says:

    poor wittle Mischa

  9. Codzilla says:

    Mojo: I agree. Mischa’s acting skills are abysmal. And her “fashion sense” is even worse.

    Why are people still bending over backwards to accommodate her?

  10. Blah blah blah says:

    Hey, let’s be honest. She used to dress pretty well at least half of the time. She was also quite pretty when she looked healthy, mildly tan and had light brown hair. I don’t really dig the dark brown or blonde on her. Unfortunately, that was a few years ago…

    I bought similar scarf year ago in ESPRIT EDS, it costed approx 30 EUR.
    looks like one she wears is same Esprit. Kinda cheap for celebrity.

  12. She only has the scarf to hide her brests, lol.

    Just need to say, I love Miss Sixty!!
