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.

Michael Madsen and Daniel Baldwin will co-star in the crime film from mew [sic] Italian production and finance group AMBI Pictures.
Mischa Barton (The O.C.) and Danny Trejo (Machete Kills) have signed on to star in Hope Lost, a new crime thriller being financed and produced by Italian company AMBI Pictures.
B-movie favorites Michael Madsen (Sin City) and Daniel Baldwin (Vampires) have signed on to co-star in the feature set in the world of sex trafficking. Italian director David Petrucci will helm the feature. Shooting is set to kick off later this month in Rome.
Barton will play a young Romanian girl, bored with small town life, who dreams of entering the glamorous world she sees on Italian soap operas. One night at a club she meets Gabriele, who claims to be a TV producer who wants to cast her in a reality TV show he is making in Italy. But when she arrives, she is sold to the pimp Manol ( Madsen) and forced to make her living on the street. Things get darker with the arrival of Ettore (Trejo), a sadist who makes snuff movies.
AMBI toppers Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi will produce Hope Lost together with Cosetta Turco. Danielle Maloni is the executive producer.
The feature is the latest on AMBI’s slate, which includes the Phillip Roth adaptation The Humbling, which Barry Levinson is attached to direct and has Al Pacino, Mandy Patinkin, Kyra Sedgwick, Charles Grodin and Dianne Wiest attached to star.
The Rome-based group recently wrapped production on the action thriller Sights of Death, which stars Danny Glover, Daryl Hannah and Rutger Hauer alongside Madsen and Stephen Baldwin.

Also check out the first teaser pic of Mischa from the movie via Ambi Pictures.
It has been making the rounds across blogs and indie mags over the last few days, so I’m a little late posting. But anyway, here is Mischa’s debut as a cult member of the Church of Nobody as a guest star for Willis Earl Beal’s “Coming Through” video.
It’s kind of equal parts strange as it is funny – but overall it’s a really cool (also creppy) concept. The video runs for over 10 minutes.
Press play on the photo above to view.
Actress Mischa Barton guest stars as a cult member in the video for Willis Earl Beal’s song, ‘Coming Through’.
The 10 minute long video for the Cat Power-featuring song – from last year’s ‘Nobody Knows’ album – sees the former star of The OC as a member of Beal’s Church Of Nobody, a cult-like group based in New Mexico. The video is made up of grainy camcorder footage and veers on the NSFW. Click above to watch the video.
The video features a large scale version of a piece of Beal’s art, called Mischa, why the pencil?. Speaking last year to NME about the drawing, Beal commented: “The concept is really abstract. I think Mischa Barton is pretty attractive, so I drew her and myself stood behind her, but nothing specifically is happening… I’ve drawn quite a few lascivious pictures and there aren’t meant to be themes to them – I guess I’m just a person who likes to draw attractive women.”
A few production stills from Mischa’s upcoming role in Mining for Ruby have been added. The film also stars Billy Zane and Jonathan Bennett.
Jack (Daniel Ponickly, “Mona Lisa Smile”, “Raw Cut”) is a widower struggling with his continued depression as he falls for Ruby (Antoinette Kalaj, “Riddick”, “Don Jon”), a passionate environmental engineering grad student who is embroiled in a poisonous waste controversy. Due to the encouragement of his sister (Mischa Barton, “The OC”, “The Sixth Sense”), Jack finally leaves his Alaskan cabin for the first time in months and meets Ruby, only to be confronted by her crazed ex-boyfriend, Andrew (Jonathan Bennett, “Mean Girls”, “Van Wilder”). Against the warnings of her mentor – Prof. Goodwell (Billy Zane, “Titanic”, “Big Kiss”) – Ruby exposes the city to an environmental crisis, thrusting her grant funding – along with her doctoral research trip – into jeopardy. As their friendship blooms into something deeper, Ruby and Jack discover that love can be found anywhere, even in Alaska.
Check out this incredible new trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in A Prayer for Rain. The film is inspired by the real events surrounding the tragic Bhopal disaster. Mischa’s co-stars are Martin Sheen and Kal Penn.

In 1945 Union Carbide Corporation helped build the atomic bomb. In 1984 they built a time-bomb…
Starring Martin Sheen, Mischa Barton, Kal Penn and a powerful ensemble cast, “Bhopal A Prayer For Rain” is an epic, ‘whodunnit’ that exposes the shocking events that led to the biggest man made industrial disaster in history, in which as many as 10,000 people were killed in one night and for those that did survive, the tragedy had just begun.
Dilip, a rickshaw driver in Bhopal, India, lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant. It is a chance to prove his worth to his family and pull them out of poverty. The job is tough with long hours; everyone is desperate to hold on to their pay cheque and so Dilip keeps quiet when he notices managers at the plant ignoring safety standards.
Dilip’s long time friend, Motwani, a tabloid journalist knows that Bhopal residents complain of the constant stench in the air and wake up at night choking from the gas. He is on a mission to expose what he believes is a deadly time bomb ticking away in his home town. He feels as if no one will listen but when he meets feisty American journalist, Eva, he sees a ray of hope and persuades her to confront Carbide executive Warren Anderson.
As Eva and Motwani endeavour to delve deeper into Carbide’s activities, Dilip is using every resource necessary to pay and plan for his sister’s wedding. When the wedding night arrives the family are full of joy and celebration as two families join together as one. But as the music plays an invisible catastrophe is working its way throughout the town and wedding party. One by one the guests start to feel unwell the largest tower at the Carbide plant spews poisonous gas into the night air; one by one they collapse; and one by one they unknowingly become a statistic in the world’s largest chemical disaster to date.
Nearly thirty years later as the plant stands as a ghost-like constant reminder, the water in Bhopal is still contaminated and one person a day dies as a direct result of the tragedy, Eva visits the now retired Anderson. Will he finally bow down and apologise? Or will he continue to deny that Carbide had any part to play…?
A disaster that set a deadly precedent for multinational corporate activity in the developing world and revealed a poisonous corruption at the heart of India, the world’s largest democracy – this is a story that demands to be seen.
