Mischa Barton is getting styled by a top fashion expert because she needs "help" with the "negative things" that have been written about her in the press.

The actress has hit headlines in the past for her bizarre wardrobe choices and fluctuating weight.

Mischa Barton has now turned her attention to working with June Ambrose, the acclaimed celebrity stylist with a new VH1 show called Styled By June.

In a video taken from the March 19 premiere of the show, Mischa talks about June helping her fallen image with fashion.

"I want June to style me because she has a great positive attitude and could help me with some of the press," she explained in the preview.

"Press is definitely not one of my stronger points. There's been a lot of negative things said and I really feel that she could help me with that."

Mischa rose to prominence after bursting onto TV screens as Marissa Cooper in hit teen TV drama The O.C .

The beauty says her immediate fame was overwhelming and led her to rebel.

"I was literally 17 when The O.C blew up. The paparazzi and that craziness sucks the soul out of you and distracts you," she added.

"That was why the press attention made me feel the way it did and made me a bit angry and want to do my own thing."
