Acting fashion: Mischa Barton
Actress Mischa Barton talks to FE about hiking, chocolate and her love of clothes
British-American actress Mischa Barton launched her eponymous handbag label in 2008. Now in its eighth season, the brand releases its debut clothing offer and opens its first flagship store in London’s Spitalfields district this spring.
I knew I’d made it when… the paparazzi chased me incessantly.
The person who influenced me the most was… my mum.
You wouldn’t know it, but I’m really interested in… music and art.
When the weekend comes I… go on hikes and take care of my dogs.
Growing up I wanted to be… an actress, or somehow involved in fashion.
The thing I want to do before I retire is… travel the world. I love seeing different cultures and places.
I spent my first pay packet on… clothes – even as a little girl I had a love of fashion.
Doing this job allowed me to meet… a lot of very special people and pursue other creative endeavours such as my bag and clothing collections.
If I wasn’t doing this I\’d be… involved in the arts in some capacity.
The reason I still get up in a morning is… because I have so much creative passion.
It’s because of this job I drive a… Mercedes Benz.
I treat myself by… being pampered in a spa and nail salon.
I wish I could resist… chocolate – it’s my guilty pleasure.
My unfulfilled ambition is… having a family one day.
When I’ve retired I want people to say… that I always did my best.
