Mischa Barton has cleaned up nicely, thanks to stylist June Ambrose. The actress, who looked chic in a white dress, showed up arm-in-arm with Ambrose at the Style360 after-party for clothing line Sachika at Avenue on Tuesday night. A camera crew followed both for Ambrose’s new VH1 reality show, “June Ambrose’s Juniverse.” When discussing locations to shoot, Barton was overheard saying that she “loves vintage stores, book shops and the Lower East Side.”

As most of you know, Mischa was recently added to the cast list of the star-studded ensemble movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting on IMDb. Within the last 24 hours, Mischa’s name was removed from the list. So I guess this means Mischa won’t be part of the movie. If you’re a wishful thinker, the film is currently still in production with some lead actors not due on set until later in the month, so, it would technically still be possible for Mischa to be part of the movie. What a tease IMDb has become!
According to IMDb, Mischa has joined the cast of a star-studded movie called What to Expect When You’re Expecting. It’s listed as a comedy/drama/romance and if Mischa really is in this, it will be her first big studio movie in ages. IMDb doesn’t list any specific information on the character she’ll play therefore I don’t know if Mischa will be part of the main cast or more of a supporting actress. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. The movie is apparently currently in production so we should know either way pretty soon.
Some of the other actors linked to this project include Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison, Chris Rock, Anna Kendrick, Dennis Quaid, Elizabeth Banks, Joe Manganiello and Chace Crawford. I’m unsure if this is a final cast list as actors have been added and removed from the list depending on scheduling availability.
One line synopsis:
A look at the lives of four couples as they prepare to become parents.
The movie is currently slated for a May 2012 release.
MISCHA BARTON is in talks to launch a full fashion line, expanding on her current handbag label. The OC actress flew to Beijing last week to meet with manufacturers about the possibility of expanding her design repertoire.
“It’s something I really want to do,” she told us. “It’ll be Forties-meets-Seventies with the occasionally bit of Twenties – that sounds a bit random, but I’ll take elements of different decades. It’ll be a bit like Biba, but with a real simplicity of cut and lots of bright colours. The fabrics will be great quality, and there will be lots of separates, like slacks and shirts. I want people to be able to mix and match.”
Although based in the States, British-born Barton’s fashion heart still belongs to London.
“It’s my favourite city for style and shopping,” she said. “I love Vivienne Westwood obviously, but I’m also a massive fan of Giles. He always puts on a great show, and his clothes are bit futuristic – but interesting and different too. You feel confident in them, but brave.”
‘Water for Elephants’ to open Shanghai Film Festival
Director Francis Lawrence’s latest romantic drama “Water for Elephants” starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson will open the Shanghai International Film Festival.
The opening ceremony is bound to be a spectacular with over 300 celebrities from home and abroad walking the red carpet.
Among them are media mogul Keith Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng; Hollywood star Susan Sarandon, Matt Dillon, and Mischa Barton; director John Woo and Feng Xiaogang; and of course Barry Levinson. Levinson is the president for the seven-member jury for the Golden Goblet Awards.
The ceremony will be held at the Shanghai Grand Theater at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday, June 11.
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.”
