Photographer Tyler Shields has a new book coming out in November called The Dirty Side of Glamour and Mischa’s going to be featured. The Huffington Post shared some photos from the spread. We’ve already seen two of the shots as they were used by GQ magazine a while ago, but featured below are the two previously unreleased photos. You can check out the pics used by GQ magazine here.
Check out Mischa’s stunning beauty editorial from Marie Claire Korea earlier in the year. The ed seems to be promoting rouge holic lipstick from a brand called Hera. Thanks to this Korean blog for the pics.
Extra shots from Mischa’s shoot for Uunique London by Alisa Connan have been added.
Landing a role in The OC made Mischa Barton a household name almost overnight. Then the world watched as Hollywood’s new ‘It’ girl became a tabloid bad girl – before turning her life around again. The actress explained all to Grazia and dished on growing her business, living in London and dealing with depression. You can read the full interview in the new issue out tomorrow but in the meantime, read on for Mischa’s thoughts on all things style…
Grazia: Do you prefer style in the US or UK?
Mischa Barton: What I really respect about the UK is the high street we have here because for some reason clothes are very expensive and look very cheap in America and we don’t have high street. That high fashion at an affordable price. It blows my mind when I go into almost any store on the high street and it’s direct knock offs of Chanel. Good knock offs. But I resepct buying both. I do appreciate you can get really good pieces at an affordable price because nobody wants to spend that much money on their clothes all the time. I think it’s just silly.
Grazia: Do you change your style in London?
Mischa Barton: I do a bit. People look at you when you wear the stuff in LA because you’re so overdressed. It’s so casual which is nice on one hand but then I really enjoy coming to London and being able to put on proper clothes because you could go for weeks wearing slouchy clothes and T-shirts and jeans and sweats. I’m not a huge wearing-sweats-out-of-the-house person but it is the kind of place where you find you can get away with that stuff. I like a reason to get dressed up.
Grazia: Is there one bit of London you associate your style with?
Mischa Barton: Not really, I’m not into that whole East vs West thing and I’m lucky enough to not have to because I’m not really a Londoner per se so I don’t really have to fit into that group but I know people take it quite seriously. For me I’m a funny little mixture of all things I like.
Grazia: How would you describe your style?
Mischa Barton: A little bit quirky and eclectic. With a kind of sixties nod to it because my palette is quite narrowed down. I like metallics if they’re silver and gold I like mustard and tan brown and navy and white and black. I’ve narrowed down what my palette is. but it is a bit eclectic because I like a bit of random tweed or vintage pieces and things I’ve had for many years that I’ve collected. I like my vintage rock t-shirts. I’m tall so I don’t really wear heels but it’s hard not to buy them. I don’t really wear them nearly as much as I should considering the price.
Grazia: Do you like Kate Middleton’s style?
Mischa Barton: I love her style, she’s beautiful. I love that graceful well put together style.
Grazia: Favourite designers?
Mischa Barton: I like Louis Vuitton, Helmut Lang, Alexander wang, Roberto Cavalli is a friend and so is Karl [Lagerfeld] and I’ve always liked their clothes. And I love Stella McCartney and Alice Temperley, who’s a friend too.
Grazia: What’s Karl Lagerfeld like?
Mischa Barton: He’s nice and not as scary as he thinks everyone thinks he is. I haven’t met Choupette. I think my three dogs want interviews now.
Photos of Mischa at the Phillips and Quintessentially Contemporary Art Dinner have been added.
And on the same evening, Mischa attended the VIP Private Viewing of Tyler Shields’ ‘Chromatic’ Exhibition.
Candids from outside the Imitate Modern gallery have also been added. Unrelated to these events, I added a couple of extra promo shots from Mischa’s appearance on Austria’s Next Top Model.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year! I decided to take a break from all things Mischa while she was having some downtime herself which is why there have been no updates for a few weeks. But, it’s now the beginning of 2013 so I’ll start the year off with a photoshoots update.
First up, here’s the first publicity shot for 2013 courtesy The Times UK. There is a corresponding article but it’s unfortunately blocked for non-subscribers. If you happen to be a subscriber, click here.
Next is a shoot from December 2012 at Mischa’s boutique in Spitalfields, London. These photos are by Joe Alvarez for Ikon London magazine.
Now we head back to January 2008 for a couple of outtakes from Mischa’s Vogue India spread.
And finally, here are HQ versions of a very young Mischa with a very young Lindsay Lohan from 1994.
