Mischa Barton has been in heavy circulation during Fashion Week, and was front and center at G-Star's presentation on Tuesday night. G-Star sought to get away from the theatrics of its past shows, but may have gone too far to the other extreme.

 

The show's music consisted of two pianists playing dirge-like music while the models move around three catwalks. Benicio del Toro, G-Star's latest Raw Icon, ended the show with a reading of lyrics from Joy Division's song "Candidate."
