Diane Kruger, Mischa Barton, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Billy Idol have joined the team of famous ambassadors. All have been photographed for the cause by Bryan Adams, the initiative’s official photographer, in the Hear the World pose – with a hand behind one ear, symbolising conscious hearing. The goal of their participation is to raise awareness about the issue of hearing and hearing loss.
The Hear the World magazine utilizes a culture and lifestyle platform to address the topic of hearing. Always linking content to the subject of hearing and sound, the magazine’s features focus on a broad range of topics, from music, to art, nature, and everything else that makes life more beautiful. The magazine is supported by the global Hear the World initiative, which is dedicated to raising awareness about hearing.
A team at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore estimated that 55 million Americans have hearing loss in one or both ears. One out of six, or 29 million adults, have some trouble discerning speech, more than previous estimates, they reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
Current ambassadors for Hear the World include Plácido Domingo, Joss Stone, Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse, Harry Belafonte and Annie Lennox, among others.
Hear the World magazine is published quarterly and is available at select newsstands and at airports internationally for $8 an issue. A free copy of the magazine can be ordered at www.hear-the-world.com. Net proceeds of the magazine benefit the Hear the World Foundation.
“I thought it was so good because he won so early and I had just voted three hours before,” said Mischa Barton, who hit the party with some friends. “I was just blown away.”
An Obama presidency means Barton is staying in the U.S. If John McCain had captured 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Barton said she “probably would have taken my residency out of this country.”
So we had to ask: If invited to any inaugural balls, what will she wear?
Interestingly, it won’t be an American designer. Instead, Barton cooed, “Something fabulous like Chanel.”
Just a quick update to mention that Teen Vogue have added Mischa’s look at the Burberry store opening to their fashion blog. This gives you the opportunity to comment on Mischa’s outfit and interact with other Teen Vogue readers. Click here to leave your comment. Mischa has been Teen Vogue’s cover girl three times in recent years, here’s hoping another cover is on the way soon!
Hollywood’s leading ladies are picking up their favorite knitting needles and crochet hooks to spread some warmth to newborns in developing nations. Save the Children Artist Ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow, and actresses Rebecca Romijn, Debra Messing, Lisa Edelstein, Vera Farmiga, Mischa Barton and Patricia Arquette joined Save the Children and the Warm Up America Foundation’s Knit One, Save One campaign to help improve newborn survival globally.
Hollywood’s biggest stars made little caps in all colors and wrote personal messages to the mom and baby on a tag attached to the cap.
Mischa Barton, star of the “O.C.,” knitted a bright orange baby cap for the Knit One, Save One campaign.
The project has inspired some Hollywood artists like Mischa Barton to pick up knitting for the first time. “It’s great that you can help change a baby’s life in just an hour — or more like a few hours if you’re just beginning to knit like me,” said Mischa Barton. Barton’s simple square cap, bright orange with two multicolored tassels on top, is adorned with a cap tag that says: “Even though we are far apart, I hold you close to my heart.”

Mischa is featured in the music video for the In My Name fight against poverty campaign. Check it out below. Thanks to Angela for the tip.
The Handbag.com and Cancer Research UK Handbag Amnesty Auction is now up and running! The bag Mischa donated is currently at £155.00 with just under five days left for bidding. All proceeds go to Cancer research so this a great way to get one of Mischa’s bags whilst supporting an important cause.
As a bonus, the winning bidder will also receieve a photo hand signed by Mischa!
A waiting list for Mischa’s upcoming hair accessories collection has been added to the Stacey Lapidus website. Click here to sign up. The website states that the collection is due in Spring but a preview of it will be available soon. Also, the logo for the collection has been revealed which comprises a mixture of the Stacey Lapidus logo infused with Mischa’s flower logo from her handbag collection. Looks like Mischa is on her way to building a mighty fine fashion label. I’m personally very excited to have Mischa step into the world of business and branding.
As an aside, rumours are circulating that Mischa is in neogitations to attend the Melbourne Cup Carnival in Australia with negotiations also underway for an undisclosed department store to carry her label downunder. Mischa’s Australian reps are the same guys who represent and market Hilary Duff in Aus so if a deal does go ahead, my bets are on retail giant Myer picking up Mischa’s line.
And finally, big thanks to LindsayLohan.eu for making us their site of the month!
