FOLLOWING in the footsteps of Katherine Jenkins and Kim Cattrall, actress and former Vogue cover girl Mischa Barton will this weekend open the Harrods summer sale.
“It’s really exciting and it should be really fun,” Barton, who also has her own handbag line, told VOGUE.COM ahead of the renowned shopping event. “Harrods is iconic and a great buy during a blowout sale is a girl’s dream come true. That said, not only is it an honour to be asked to open its annual sale, but something I’m truly looking forward to.”
And what about sale-shopping tips?
“Look for staples,” advises the actress – noting a Topshop leather jacket to be one of her own best sale buys.
Arriving in horse-drawn carriage, Barton will be welcomed by Mohamed Al Fayed before taking the all-important tour of the store.
“I love London style – it’s nice and eclectic. I see, in my future, spending a lot of time in the UK,” added Barton.
Mischa has taken part in a new campaign for Save the Children and Bvlgari in this new video and photoshoot shot by Fabrizio Ferri. The video features a plethora of other celebrities including Willem Dafoe, Terrence Howard, Ben Stiller, Isabella Rossellini, Ginnifer Goodwin and Olivia Wilde. Check it out below.
Just under 2000 screen captures from Mischa’s recent horror/thriller “Walled In” have been uploaded. Huge thanks to Marie for taking the time out to follow through with this enourmous task! Also a shout out to Padme for offering to send in caps as well.
Please note: Due to the violent nature of some scenes, not all captures are appropriate for children.

Mischa Barton, the English American film, television, and stage actress, perhaps best known for her role as Marissa Cooper in the American television series The O.C. and hailed as one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People, will open the Harrods Summer Sale at 9.00am on Saturday 27th June 2009.
Mischa will be welcomed to the store by Harrods Chairman, Mohamed Al Fayed. After the traditional countdown to the opening of the doors at 9.00am, Mr Al Fayed will take Mischa on a tour of the store’s best bargains.
Speaking ahead of the event Mischa said, “Harrods is iconic and a great buy during a blowout sale is a girl’s dream come true. That said, not only is it an honour to be asked to open their annual sale, but something I’m truly looking forward to.”
The CW have released a couple of new promos for “The Beautiful Life: TBL”. The first is just a quick 10 second promo featuring Mischa’s character Sonja Stone. And the second promo is a shortened and slightly revised version of the extended trailer that was posted last week. “The Beautiful Life: TBL” premieres Wednesday September 16th.
A couple of scans from the current issue of InStyle UK have been uploaded. It’s a one page interview with Mischa regarding her hair care and beauty routines. Lots of Mischa’s favourite products and brands are listed, namely Chanel and Herbal Essences. The scans are marked ‘June 2009′ on the album page.
