Mischa Barton turned heads Eater Sunday when she stepped out in super-tight, yellow high-waisted jeans. ("OMG! What happened to her?" screamed one fashion blog.)

But Barton, 24, laughed off the criticism when grilled by TMZ photographers Monday in Los Angeles.

"That was my Easter outfit," she told them. "You guys shouldn't be photographing me if you don't like what I wear!"

Before speeding off, she yelled: "Don't hate on my yellow banana pants!"
