love it or leave it?

At the Godiva Chocolate Cafe opening at Harrods in London, Mischa turned heads. When I came across these photos of Mischa Barton, I couldn't stop looking at her outfit. Unfortunately, this wasn't an entirely positive thing.



What I love:

This dress has an amazing print. From the colours to the patterns, it is bold and unique. The collar and shoulder details have dramatic flair, but are still fun and wearable. Also, the shape of the dress looks stunning on Mischa. This dress is completely figure flattering. She looks wonderful! Additionally, the understated but glamorous accessories, hair and makeup really allow the dress to stand on its' own.


What I loathe:

While the pattern on the dress is bold, the zipper detail all the way down the front distracts from the uniqueness of the print. I think this dress would have been a lot more elegant - while still retaining that bold vibe - without the exposed zipper down the front of the dress. Perhaps my biggest issue with this dress, however, is the feather details. They add nothing and unfortunately make this otherwise beautiful dress, look costumey.

What do you think of Mischa's look? Love it or leave it?

  7. I agree with you the feathers are adding nothing to the dress, it would have been better without them!

  11. I've missed seeing shots of Mischa everywhere - she has such great style! I agree with the feathers though - a bit overkill, and totally misplaced on the dress!
