Mischa Barton has lent her name to and joined Save the Children’s Board of Celebrities for the Rewrite the Future campaign. The effort is expected to bring in millions of dollars in donations for impoverished and war-stricken children.
“I visited a primary school in Soweto, where a lot of the children are orphans and there is a high incidence of AIDS,” Barton reveals. “I helped prepare and serve lunch to the children; it’s just simple maize and for many it’s the only meal they get. We chatted and I took part in their class. They are heartbreakingly beautiful children!”
Barton hopes that her work with Save the Children will result in a new irrigation system for Soweto, along with tools to allow the township to grow its own food.
Notes Barton, “I feel so privileged that I could just meet [the children] and hope to make a difference!”

A stunning Mischa Barton stepped out in London to attend the Temperley London Spring/Summer 2009 fashion show. London Fashion Week runs through until September 19th, so hopefully she’ll attend some more shows.
First up, I’d like to officially welcome Natasha to the team! As you can see she’s already made her first update below and I hope that together we can build the site into an even better source for your Mischa fix.
Onto my update for the day. I’ve added some additional photos of Mischa out in Los Angeles. No idea who the mystery guy is. Despite being hq though, these add-on photos have been hit with too much flash so you can’t really see them that well.
Some tiny stills of Mischa’s upcoming “Homecoming” co-starring 90210’s Jessica Stroup have surfaced online. Hopefully larger versions come out soon. I’ve also included a really short fan video on the set of “Homecoming” of a fan taking a picture with Mischa but realizing that the camera is actually in video mode.
Alternatively, ASOS has a selection of different styles from Mischa’s collection.
A couple of random things, first is regarding Mischa’s break up with Taylor. Taylor’s reps confirmed to People that they have indeed broken up.
Next is a paparazzi video of Mischa at Crown Night Club. (thanks to Chiara)
And finally, for those of us upset that Mischa didn’t attend New York Fashion Week, evidently, she’s due to attend London Fashion Week instead which kicks off September 14th.
A couple of candids of Mischa spotted leaving Foxtails in West Hollywood have been uploaded. Thanks to Marie for these!
Mischa Barton’s relationship with Rooney frontman Taylor Locke ended on September 5, just shy of their seven-month anniversary a new report from In Touch notes on Tuesday. The magazine says that according to an insider, it was Mischa who pulled the plug on the relationship and called it quits.
The magazine reports that the couple had just returned from a nearly three-week safari and charity junket through Africa and all that togetherness seems to have been their downfall. “Mischa and Taylor’s romance worked because they spent so much time apart,” an insider tells In Touch.
“He’d be on tour or she’d be working in Europe and they talked over the phone or e-mail.” The insider explains to In Touch that spending 24 hours a day in close proximity with Taylor, 24, caused the 22-year-old actress to rethink her future with him.
“They fought almost every day on the trip,” the insider says. “She broke up with him just a few days after they returned to LA.” “They’d only see each other for a few days at a time,” says the insider. She has a thing for musicians: She also dated Cisco Adler.
