Mischa Barton flies flag

NOW hat’s what I call doing it in style! American star Mischa Barton looks tops flying the flag for British fashion.

The jobless It girl says her favourite celebrity style icons are Brits. Now that I like.

The former OC girl – about to launch a handbag range (who needs to act, eh?) – said: “I’ve got friends in London who I think are very fashionable. Girls like Pixie Geldof. And Noel Fielding looks so fantastic.

“They get away with it and they get to be themselves. It’s far more interesting and iconic. In the States they don’t like it when you look too different.”

Mischa Barton’s art attack

Mischa Barton loves throwing paint parties.

The former ‘O.C.’ actress enjoys inviting friends over to her New York home to create unusual art pieces by throwing colours around. She said: “We mess around and throw paint on canvases. It doesn’t have to be serious. Art is about enjoying yourself, a moment in time. That is the most exciting stuff.”

Mischa is predominantly based in Paris, France, and says the people she has met there have encouraged her to pursue her artistic ambitions. She said: “Paris is such an inspiring city. A group of friends there have brought out my creative side like 10 times more in terms of doing art, paintings, sculpture.”

Mischa’s next small screen project sees her play a model in ‘A Beautiful Life’, in a TV show produced by Ashton Kutcher. The series is based on Ashton’s early experiences as a male model and is set to air in the US later this year.

Mischa Barton bags a new role as celebrity designer

Mischa Barton has jumped on the celebrity-turned-designer bandwagon by creating her own range of handbags. The actress and fashionista tells Albertina Lloyd about her style icons and life after The OC…

It may surprise you that Mischa Barton, actress, model and brunette beauty, sees herself as more of a goofball than a fashion icon.

The 23-year-old fashionista burst into the spotlight at sweet 16 when a little TV show called The OC became a massive teen sensation.

With her effortless ability to pair vintage and casual, Mischas character Marissa Cooper was the envy of millions of teenage girls, all eager to mimic her style.

But today, dressed in slashed jeans, shoe boots, a striped blazer and Alexander McQueen scarf, she downplays her own fashion sense.

Im sure I should be more conscious of it or conscious at all some days! she says, with a laugh.

Ive always been a free spirit and a bit of a goofball and really into trying new things and just being expressive and creative though clothing.

Mischa Barton tells theBuzz’s Luke Blackall off for linking her with Pete Doherty

MISCHA BARTON isn’t happy with theBuzz – but unlike other celebrities, she isn’t afraid to tell us to our faces.

Last night the kooky starlet stormed out of a party in Mayfair to confront our Luke – saying she wanted to set the record straight about her love life. “I want to talk to you about the stories you’ve been writing about me,” a glamorous-looking Mischa said, after marching out of the after party for the launch of the Belvedere Pop-Up Shop at The Connaught hotel.

First on her list of gripes was our exclusive revelation earlier this week that she had enjoyed a cosy reunion with former boyfriend Luke Pritchard – of The Kooks –in Camden over the weekend.

thought the fact that the headline said ‘Luke’ and you’re called Luke was kind of funny, but he and I are just friends,” she insisted. “Plus, I’m seeing a new guy at the moment so the story made it awkward with him.”

And who is the lucky guy? Misch refused to elaborate, but we spotted her getting cosy later on with James Regan, a barman and aspiring scriptwriter. Mischa also wasn’t happy that we revealed she’s been trying to hang out with Pete Doherty. “You wrote a story about me and Pete Doherty that upset a lot of my friends,” she said. “It was unnecessary.” We insist that it’s true, however…

Always happy to get feedback, we were pleased to listen to Mischa. Most celebs hide behind PR machines if they are not happy with stories. We think she’s a cool chick…

Mischa Barton Debuts Her Spring Headband Collection

Style icon Mischa Barton might be known for seamlessly shifting from retro-cool street style and red carpet elegance, but regardless of where she’s headed, Mischa tells PEOPLE.com, “Accessorizing is oddly my favorite part of dressing up.” It comes as no surprise then that the actress has been having fun developing her headband collection with designer Stacey Lapidus. Mischa says that she found inspiration for the hair accessories, which range from $50 to $200, in her jet set lifestyle. “I’ve been working in the likes of India, Milan, Paris, London, Montreal, L.A, and NYC,” she explains. “My style has been somewhat boho chic, which I think is a result of having traveled so extensively throughout the course of the past year.” And she’s about to get even busier! In addition to her headband line and a collection of handbags, Barton is waiting to hear whether her pilot for the CW, A Beautiful Life, will get picked up for a series this fall. “It was a blast to film and though I’ve only seen bits and pieces [of it], I’m proud of the show and hopeful that I’ll get to shoot some more,” she says. “Since I have an obvious passion for fashion, it was also incredible for me to be offered a role that’s immersed in the industry.” Check out Mischa’s collection, available now at staceylapidus.com. – Lisa Ingrassia

Unhappy in love Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton loves ‘dark’ men.

The former ‘O.C.’ actress – who recently split from Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard – is attracted to intense, brooding types even though they make her feel depressed and claustrophobic. She said: ‘I have always been in very heavy, long-term serious relationships… three in a row. I tend to be attracted to slightly dark men, meaning they have huge lows, which I can too. This is not conducive to being happy and carefree.

‘I have therefore set my mind to dating if I feel like it, but not getting into anything serious. It’s difficult to find the happy medium. I am dating in a general sense… nothing exclusive. I am enjoying myself.’  When it comes to choosing potential lovers, the 23-year-old beauty prides brains over bulging muscles. She added to Britain’s Hello! magazine: ‘I love men to be super-intelligent rather than Greek gods. I love hanging out with the boys, so even after a relationship has ended I like to stay friends.’

Mischa also spoke about her tumultuous past, including her 2007 conviction for driving under the influence and without a valid licence. She said: ‘I have no privacy and therefore I have grown up in the public arena. Not an excuse, just a fact.  ‘I should have known better than to drink-drive and I am just very happy nothing worse happened. I have learnt a huge lesson and am now also more wary of my friends and their influence over me.  ‘I should never have got in that car, and for that I admit my guilt. Sometimes you need a big shock to shake you up.’
