But the end of 2008 saw a slight change for the better in Mischa's fashion choices (can't say the same for her movies, though, unfortunately), and all of a sudden things were somewhat looking up for Ms. Barton. So far, she hasn't had any major slips to send her back to "what was she thinking?" status, but then again, it's early days. But I have nothing but hope for Mischa and wish her well on her journey back to the A-List.
EDIT: Mischa continues her stylish transformation with this gorgeous Elie Saab, straight from the runway, at the Fashion Dinner for AIDS in Paris.
What do you all think of Mischa's look? Step forward? Or step back?
