AS one of Hollywood’s hottest “It” girls, Mischa Barton creates fashion trends rather than following them.
Now the British-born actress is bringing the international spotlight on to the Australian fashion scene with a high-profile shopping trip.
The 20-year-old former model, already a fan of Australian designers sass&bide and Collette Dinnigan, will arrive in Sydney on August 9 for the launch of the David Jones summer collection.
Barton, who played teen queen Marissa Cooper in the hit TV series The O.C., told The Sunday Telegraph she couldn’t wait to see Bondi beach and experience the outdoor lifestyle.
“I’m also looking forward to stocking up on the latest from Australian designers,” she said.
Her three-day visit will include a busy itinerary of fashion shows and shopping.
Barton says Willow, Alice McCall and One Teaspoon are among her favourite brands.
“Through my work, I have been lucky enough to be introduced to Australian brands that have become a staple in my own wardrobe,” she added.
Barton visited Australia four years ago to shoot a movie, but spent all her time in Brisbane.
Along with Kate Moss and Sienna Miller, she is regarded as one of the world’s most influential style icons.
Barton has been a covergirl for such titles as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle and Marie Claire.
Securing the young socialite is a coup for David Jones in its retail battle against Myer.
It is understood the store paid more than $100,000 for her appearance.
Since leaving The O.C., Barton has been pursuing a film career. Among her latest works are romantic drama Closing The Ring, with Shirley MacLaine; dark comedy The OH In Ohio with Danny DeVito, and thriller Guilty Pleasure.
