Former 'The O.C.' actress Mischa Barton has revealed people often find her sense of style strange, but insists she will never stop taking risks with her outfits.
Mischa Barton says people think her fashion sense is "nuts".
The former 'O.C.' actress loves taking risks with her outfits, but admits her efforts are not always well-received.
She said: "A few years ago people thought I was nuts for wearing headbands and fringing, but things I have been into have kind of become more popular recently.
"I grew up with pictures of Marianne Faithfull and Anita Pallenberg on my wall, they have always been my style. I am a weird replica of the 70s! But it is cool to see that it is back on trend."
Mischa - who was born in London before her parents moved to the US when she was five - enjoys spending time in the UK because people are more accepting of what she chooses to wear.
She explained: "What is nice about fashion in Britain is that you get to be more eccentric and a bit more yourself. In the States they don't like it when you look too different."
The 23-year-old star has also urged women to discover their own personal style.
Mischa said: "It is about experimenting by mixing and matching to develop your own look. You should try to wear something that embodies your sense of style. I think it is bad to wear head to toe all one look."
