Check out this new interview of Mischa talking all things bridal-related to Wedding Ideas Mag. In case you missed it, Mischa took part in a beautiful shoot for the Intuzuri 2014 Bridal Collection last year.
Wedding Ideas caught up with The OC star on the set of her new film in Rome to have an exclusive chat about her recent collaboration with bridal designers Intuzuri and what she has in mind for her own big day…
Which is your favourite gown from the latest Intuzuri collection?
This is a really tough question as there are so many gowns in the Intuzuri new collection that I absolutely love! I particularly adore Berkhaya, I find it extremely sophisticated yet very romantic with a vintage feel. The Intuzuri shoot was so much fun! The entire Intuzuri team have been so great and I did feel like a princess trying on so many gorgeous gowns.
What are your top 3 wedding dress shopping tips?
My first advice would be to follow your instinct, to forget about what is trendy right now, listen to your heart and look for a dress that reflects your personality and your style.
The second tip would be to start looking for your dream dress as soon as you can so you have plenty of time to do your research, find out which brands you love and then search for your closest stockists.
My final advice would be to look for a dress with a good structure which will help enhance your curves and gives you the best shape. That’s why I adore the Intuzuri gowns, they all have an incredible fits which give you an amazing silhouette.
What would your dream wedding day look like?
I grew up in New York and for me this is still one of my favourite cities in the world, so I would definitely consider getting married in the Big Apple. I want my wedding to be classic, beautiful and elegant but I also want it to be fun! And I love colour, so that will play a big part.
Do you think women should try to lose weight for their wedding day?
Absolutely not! I support the idea that every woman should celebrate their bodies and their curves and feel confident in her own skin. Saying that I think it’s really important to lead a healthy lifestyle which will make you look and feel better on the day.
What would be your first dance song?
It would have to be Lovesong by The Cure.
What are the three most important qualities a husband should have?
I definitely look for a guy who makes laugh, and who doesn’t take himself too seriously. A perfect husband should also be caring, attentive and supportive.
What’s next for Mischa Barton?
I am currently shooting a new movie in Rome of which I can’t say much about! But I can definitely reveal that I have started to work again on my handbags line and on the Mischa Barton e-commerce site which I hope to relaunch very soon.
