NOW hat’s what I call doing it in style! American star Mischa Barton looks tops flying the flag for British fashion.
The jobless It girl says her favourite celebrity style icons are Brits. Now that I like.
The former OC girl – about to launch a handbag range (who needs to act, eh?) – said: “I’ve got friends in London who I think are very fashionable. Girls like Pixie Geldof. And Noel Fielding looks so fantastic.
“They get away with it and they get to be themselves. It’s far more interesting and iconic. In the States they don’t like it when you look too different.”
As mentioned, Mischa is now back in the US and as always was quickly snapped by the paparazzi. Here are the latest candids both from the same night:
– Mischa leaving club Bardot in Hollywood – May 21
– Mischa at a coffee shop getting take out food at 3 A.M. – May 22
Mischa Barton loves throwing paint parties.
The former ‘O.C.’ actress enjoys inviting friends over to her New York home to create unusual art pieces by throwing colours around. She said: “We mess around and throw paint on canvases. It doesn’t have to be serious. Art is about enjoying yourself, a moment in time. That is the most exciting stuff.”
Mischa is predominantly based in Paris, France, and says the people she has met there have encouraged her to pursue her artistic ambitions. She said: “Paris is such an inspiring city. A group of friends there have brought out my creative side like 10 times more in terms of doing art, paintings, sculpture.”
Mischa’s next small screen project sees her play a model in ‘A Beautiful Life’, in a TV show produced by Ashton Kutcher. The series is based on Ashton’s early experiences as a male model and is set to air in the US later this year.
Mischa graces the cover of ASOS Magazine. Hopefully someone will be kind enough to send in scans. *begs*. Thanks to Maz for the tip!
Mischa has written a blog about The Beautiful Life getting a pick-up. She’s also arrived back in the US, unfortunately just missing out on the upfronts presentation. Hopefully next time The CW can work around Mischa’s Herbal Essences commitments more successfully.
I’ve been traveling so extensively that I barely had time to react to my pilot getting picked up for a Fall launch. I’m so excited that even being in a foreign place like Moscow right now couldn’t stifle my enthusiasm. Russia was awesome and so too will it be to relocate to NYC and begin a regimented schedule for Beautiful Life.
Production is supposed to get underway as of mid July and I couldn’t be more thrilled to call the likes of Ashton Kutcher boss; not to mention being affiliated with the CW. Think America’s Next Top Model will be the perfect lead-in.
Hope you guys enjoy!

I uploaded some additional photos of Mischa at the Herbal Essences Young Icon Awards in Moscow. They went all out with the presentation.
Another preview from Mischa’s upcoming CW show featuring the opening credit title!
Completely forgot to mention this in the updates yesterday but those keen observers of the “latest uploads” link have already noticed the photos. Mischa is currently in Russia promoting Herbal Essences where she attended the Herbal Essences Young Icon Awards in Moscow. I’ll be adding more photos from the event asap.
