Mischa Barton Reveals Her Style Influences

Posted on

Richard Young/Startraks

No one could every accuse Mischa Barton of having a fear of fashion, and in her video blog, the fashion muse does a little on-camera musing of her own, contemplating what style means to her and reflecting on the influences that led to her unique look. “I think that personal sense of style is all about being individual,” she says, “and wearing whatever makes you feel comfortable — as quirky or as normal and safe as you want to be.” How would she describe her own look? “It’s just kind of eclectic and all over the place,” she says. And although the jet setter counts her travels as a major influence, ultimately, it’s all about the rock ‘n’ roll: “I think my favorite fashion icons have always been women of the ’70s – real rock & roll chicks like Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull.” The actress finds it a little more difficult to get inspired by today’s stars, however. “I like quirkiness in people,” she explains. “And I like people who just dress like what suits them and their personality.” Her choice for a modern fashion tastemaker? Fellow actress Zooey Deschanel, she says, “has awesome style.” Click here to see Mischa’s video blog. Then tell us: Which Hollywood star do you think has the best style?
