Mischa Barton is an British-American film, television, and stage actress, perhaps best known for her role as Marissa Cooper in the American television series The O.C.
New promos for The Beautiful Life have surfaced And the first one is COMPLETELY Mischa-focused. The second one is more general but still features a new scene from Mischa.
AUSTRALIAN design duo Sass & Bide wanted to celebrate 10 years at the top of their nation’s design tree – and so created the Shine Initiative in association with Barnardos. The designers – famous for their great denim and shiny Rats leggings – asked some of their celebrity friends, including Kate Moss, Mischa Barton and Twiggy, to create artworks depicting what “shine” means to them.
Launched at this year’s Australian Fashion Week in April, the works are now online at www.sassandbide.com – where fans can place bids on them before the bidding continues at an event at The Dairy in London on July 23. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to Barnardos UK and Australia to help fund workshops for abused children, hosted by the Sass & Bide designers; Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke.
“We are so excited to be back in London for our Shine project,” the designers told VOGUE.COM. “London is where our label was born so to be back here celebrating 10 years, exhibiting the works of 10 special friends for a cause that is so close to our hearts, it’s a really wonderful feeling. Each child we help will also receive a grant to pursue a dream.”

To celebrate ten years of creating, we invited ten of our favourite souls to interpret what ‘shine’ means to them…Kate Moss, Barry Humphries, Rankin, Daisy Lowe, Sam Taylor-Wood, Emma Hawkins, Darren Middleton, Twiggy, Daimon Downey, Mischa Barton, and Sarah-Jane Clarke & Heidi Middleton have each created artworks which will support ‘The Shine Collective’ project, a sass & bide and Barnardos initiative. The charity collaborative launched in April ’09 at Australian Fashion Week with an exhibition of the artworks. The artworks will be auctioned in London on July 23rd, 2009. The proceeds will fund creative counseling workshops for abused children and will be hosted by Sarah-Jane Clarke (sass) and Heidi Middleton (bide), in Australia and Britain.
