Mischa Barton Seems To Have Rejoined Us On Planet I-Wash-My-Hair

By: Rachel Krause / July 18, 2012

Mischa Barton’s attempted comeback has not been what one would generally call a success, but she has improved significantly since her strung-out post-“O.C.” years, which had all the makings of a Lohan-doppelgänger life story (unfortunate mug shots, ever-present cigarette, cocaine-induced emaciation, and all). Now I guess she has this kind of bizarre and hilariously overpriced online store, and that’s whatever. She also enlisted celebrity stylist June Ambrose to give her a wardrobe revamp, which wasn’t the worst thing in the world, because Mischa stepped out last night for a club opening in London looking the best she’s looked since, like, 2005 (totally disregarding the sketchy Brillo Pad fabric of the dress) — pretty, natural, and even better, clean, not at all like when she was dating Cisco Adler. That was a weird time.
