It looks like 2012 could be the year of Mischa Barton’s comeback, and I’ll be the first to say, “Finally!” Ever since I watched Fox’s The O.C., I’ve envied Barton’s ability to wear cute, casual looks without treading into adolescent territory. “When I was younger, I tended to dress much more sophisticated than the average teen since I was fortunate enough to have some of the world’s top designers willing to dress me,” said Barton.“I’ve become a bit more playful in my style as I’ve matured.”
The British-born actress has flown under the radar for the past few years, but little did we know that Barton has been expanding on her eponymous handbag line that she launched last fall. “Accessorizing has always been my favorite means of sprucing up an ensemble, which is one of the reasons I’ve launched my own handbag line,” said Barton. “It’ll culminate in my own boutique in London this spring that also includes clothes and make-up”
Barton is also wrapping up two new films, “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” and “Apartment 1303 3D”, so she admits she hasn’t had time to plan for her 26th birthday this Tuesday. “I haven’t put much thought into how I’ll celebrate, but I imagine it will be with a close-knit party of family and friends. Each year, people approach me with fantastic getaways or Vegas experiences, which can surely be fun,” said Barton. “But for me, it’s more about who I’m celebrating with rather than how or where, so I tend to prefer a low-key dinner at a favorite restaurant.”
While Barton celebrates her birthday, we asked her to share her thoughts on a few outfits from the past nine years. Check out her commentary in the captions, and tell us, which look is your favorite?

We caught up with Mischa Barton to discuss her new collection
The actress-turned-designer is back with her latest collection of handbags and we love them! Practical, affordable and on-trend, it’s everything we want. In a hidden corner of London, we stole a few minutes with Mischa to chat bags, style and body-image.
Hi Mischa! We’re loving the new collection of handbags, which one’s your favourite?
Hi! it’s difficult to pick- i love all the bags so much! The satchel styles are probably my favourite though, and the most roomy and useful for everyday.
What kind of things do you always carry around in your bag then?
I am guilty of throwing a lot of things in my purses a lot of like. I carry lip gloss, mascara, eye liner and my iPhone. Oh, and a book usually. My bags are usually big enough to fit my book in.
So what was your inspiration when you were designing them?
I’ll buy a stack of magazines and whatever the runway collections are in the magazines and then take out my favourite pieces of inspiration. Which is everything from vintage bags, I take a lot from Japanese style, I take a lot from brands like Miu Miu and Prada. Some stuff from vintage fairs and things that I own.
Cool and have you got a muse or an ideal person you would like to see with your bag?
It would have to be Kate Middleton because she’s a good, current fashion icon and I like that she’s got class to her and that’s the kind of image I want.
Yeah she always looks so stylish. Do you find that hard when people analyse everything you wear?
I hate that aspect of things. I mean I haven’t been purposefully in the public eye for a long time and I haven’t been going out but paparazzi shots you see of me I’m wandering around LA just living life. I hate the public scrutiny about clothes. I think it’s stupid. If it’s not gonna be positive I think it shouldn’t be there at all because I like clothes at much as the next person. I like risk-taking when it comes to clothes and also just trying different things, whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Do you feel confident when you go out?
Yeah I’ve got a good regime of like working out and a good balanced diet and I’m pretty comfortable with the way it is.
Would you ever consider having plastic surgery?
It’s really not something that, god, I mean you never say never do you but it sounds horrific so I don’t know but who knows maybe when you get older what you’ll want to do.
And what trends and bags do you like now it’s getting into autumn/winter. Although I don’t suppose it’s that cold in LA…
No, it’s still hot to be honest. It’s really hot over there. But I like all kinds of stuff – big chunky scarves, lots of V-neck sweaters, lots of t-shirts and layering stuff, long-sleeved t-shirts.
So what are your favourite brands from the UK then, are there any that you really like?
ASOS and Topshop I would say kind of top the list. I’m a huge ASOS fan and I’m really happy that they carry as much of the line as they do. They’ve upped what they bought for next season which is a big deal because I really do love their stuff I buy it myself.
We love ASOS and Topshop too! Thanks for chatting to us, Mischa.

To celebrate the seventh collection of Mischa Barton Handbags we caught up with the fancy dresser to talk the art of accessories, her plans for a clothing collection and what really happened with Rachel Zoe…
She’s still only 25 but Mischa Barton has lived a lot since we met her as Marissa Cooper in The O.C. There’s been highs and lows but her this season it’s safe to say she’s on the up and so is her handbag line, which is now in its seventh season no less.
With experimental fashion flare, it’s her individual approach to dressing that keeps us hooked on her look so we grilled the girl on how she sees her style and where she’s taking it to next.
What’s your style at the moment?
Recently it’s changed. People have seen me grow up in the public eye and so my style has grown up too. I went through a heavy bohemian phase but I cleared my whole wardrobe about eight months ago, and got rid of everything that was even kind of hippyish or even slightly floaty and paisley. It’s all in storage; I would never get rid of my clothes, a) It may come back, I may want to wear it again and b) I might want to give it to my kids, or friends. Now I’ve gone back to my New York-ey roots and these days I’m wearing streamlined things in mostly black, white and beige with accessories, and gold accents.
Do you work with a stylist?
No. It was well known for a long time that I worked with Rachel Zoe, but I never really ‘employed’ Rachel. It was more that she was a friend at the time – years ago. That’s the only stylist I ever sort-of worked with, she helped me pull clothes for red carpet events but she never dressed me; I was never dressed by anyone on a daily basis. I’ve always bought my own clothes and done my own thing when it comes to fashion, I do all my own wardrobe and I enjoy it! My thing with fashion is I genuinely love it, I love clothing and I love the way it makes you feel and I love design.
Do you follow any rules?
I’m tall so I don’t wear a lot of heels and I have huge respect for tailoring and getting your clothes altered so they fit right.

Very.co.uk also attended the party and grabbed Mischa to ask about fashion, her comeback and what she plans to do next.
QS: You’re looking amazing right now, what’s your secret?
MISCHA: “I feel happy when it’s sunny so I dress to reflect that. It’s simple. Everyone needs some items in their wardrobe that make them feel cheerful.
For me, that’s bright colours and maxi skirts and maxi dresses, but I know some of my friends love skinny jeans because they make their legs look amazing.
My secret is shopping around until I find something that I know looks good and then trusting my instincts and buying it. Easy!”
QS: Do you have any advice about how to accessorise an outfit?
MISCHA: “My top tip is to have a Mischa Barton handbag.
“No seriously, I’d say less is more with jewellery. It’s better to have one stunning necklace or a few bangles than both with earrings. It just means people notice what you have. Otherwise people can hear you when you arrive if you have too much jewellery on and that’s not cool.”
QS: Tell us more about your handbags, what has been your inspiration?
MISCHA: “I always loved handbags but I found it difficult to find ones with lots of pockets. I was constantly losing things because I was shoving them into my handbag and it became a black hole. So even my clutch bags have pockets, which makes them so practical.”
QS: What are your favourite bags from the collection?
MISCHA: “At night-time, I’ll take out a clutch. For day, I love big bags – with pockets – the Mischa Barton black tote bag is regularly used as it goes with everything.”
QS: What can we expect to see in your handbag range next season?
MISCHA: “I’m heading to China in a few weeks to oversee the next collection. I’m very hands on with the designs and quality control.
“I’m hoping to bring out some designer-looking handbags, some with bow details and charms and some big and simple. But the key thing is they’ll look expensive but they’ll all be under £100.”
