Kicking her heels

June 4, 2008 at 4:05 pm (Lace, Leather, Mischa Barton) ()

I wonder if Keds is rethinking selecting Mischa Barton as their spokeswoman. I can tell you that this look doesn’t inspire me to run out to my closest Keds retailer to pick up a pair!

In their ads, MIscha looks fresh-faced, demure, sporty and Audrey Hepburn-esque. In this photo, she looks slouchy, dried up, and homely. Plus, she has a “I’m wearing these shredded Grandma sneakers cuz it’s my only paying gig right now” look on her face.

The dress could be cute. We really can’t tell. But it looks a little cheap, especially along the hem. But the jacket seems rather random, with the erratic zippers, pockets, belt and other assorted doo-dads.

The accessories are a mish-mash of garage-sale bohemian cast offs. And her eye makeup is better suited for a formal avant garde look, not a rumpled suburban hippy .
