A couple of news stories have come out with some new quotes from Mischa regarding The Beautiful Life:
‘It’s a younger version of Sex And The City,’ Mischa told me at the launch of Matthew Williamson for H&M. ‘I play a super-bitchy model in New York, which is fun but hard because that is so not me. If the pilot does well, I may be spending a lot more time in New York.’ DailyMail
Elle Macpherson uses insight to help make drama out of fashion
Mandrake hears that the 45-year-old actress has signed up to play a former model turned agent in A Beautiful Life, for which a pilot episode has already been filmed in America.
“It’s a really great show,” said Mischa Barton, who starred in the glamorous drama series The O.C. and plays a model in A Beautiful Life.
It’s like The O.C. times 10. Everyone is dressed in the latest Versace and McQueen. Zac Posen has a fashion show in the first episode and plays himself.”
Mischa, 23, who was speaking at the launch of Matthew Williamson’s range of clothes for H&M, at the chain’s flagship store in Regent Street, added: “It’s hilarious to be playing my character because she’s the famous bitchy character, but she has a heart of gold. She loves a drama. I really enjoy playing her like that, a bit catty.
“I was trying to be as realistic as possible, portraying the good, the bad, everything. I think it’s a fascinating world, couture. I bought most of my wardrobe. My character wears these [she pointed to studded Christian Louboutin heels], which I love.” Telegraph
