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.

Bride-to-be and “Revenge” star Ashley Madekwe donned a stunning yellow drop waist dress for her bachelorette party in London this weekend. Her BFFs Christa Allen (in white lace) and Mischa Barton (in a leather mini dress) also brought their fashion A-games. Such a gorgeous group! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Mischa Barton seemed like she hit rock bottom for a while but she is looking very healthy now. She scored the cover of Nylon Korea (May 2012). What is she up to now? The former ‘O.C’ star has turned her focus to fashion. Her clothes retail between $45 and $450. She launched her clothes 2 months ago and they were sold out in days.
“It’s for women ranging from 15 to 35. There are different pieces that will appeal to different styles, but the main thing is I wanted it to feel functional and easy to wear,” Barton told WWD. “My sister, who’s 36 and a barrister in London, wears a lot of it.” Read more …
