Red Carpet: Mischa Barton Got A Makeover!

Mischa Barton is one of those famous people who got a lot of attention really early on in their careers: she had a hit show, a strong look and one of those figures fashion people are always hailing a “designer’s dream.” But her time on The OC came to a close and she seemed to quickly descend into a world of substance abuse, bad dudes, and increasingly disheveled paparazzi photos.

…Hence, the fashion crowd has been calling for a “comeback” for years now. Setting aside the issue of what it would mean for “someone from The OC who walked some red carpets sometimes” to make a comeback, let’s all be interested and amazed by the fact that Barton popped up earlier this week looking more polished than she has in a while.

She was attending the Metropolitan Opera’s opening production of Eugene Onegin (dope choices all around!) at The Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. She wore a delicately draped black gown, fantastic pumps and a statement belt in a shade of blue last seen on the Diva in The Fifth Element (let’s call it Diva Blue).

Also, her makeup was very minimal:

Again, we don’t really know what it would mean for Barton to make a comeback, per se, but it’s nice to see… people… looking nice! Other recent exciting makeovers include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hayden Panettiere and Wendy DavisVogue treatment.

    Love it all except for the cleaning implement she’s carrying as a purse.

  • LynnKell

    I might have worn a pink-ish lipstick because she looks a little washed out. Yet very pretty.

  • Jayjay

    Hmm, she looks washed out, black doesn’t work for her, but i do like the minimalist make up.

  • Amy

    What are you talking about? She looks exactly the same.
