There has been no images of Mischa Barton for a while. Ever since she failed to continue her career after The O.C. with her short-lived 'The Bautiful Life' TV show she sort of fell off the radar.
She did make an appearance at Cannes last week for the amfAR gala, where she was a host. She then looked quite a lot like her old self in a strapless sequinned black gown, which made me hope for a comeback.
Last night she was seen out at Mahiki in London wearing a Matthew Williamson dress and blouse combo that, to me, looked more like Giles. Her insect-printed top reminded me a lot of one of my favourite up-and-coming London designers. Charlotte Taylor debuted her namesake line two seasons ago and I've been a fan since. Her animal prints —the now signature penguins and also ants, lobsters and robots— are super bold and are a brilliant mix with the vintage cuts of the, mostly, silks that she uses. I'm also a huge fan of the turbans, which are part of the kind of colonial British heritage that Charlotte includes in her clothes.
Wouldn't Mischa look incredible in any of these pieces?
Check out Charlotte Taylore's web here and don't miss her blog.
