Mischa Barton is back on the big screen next month in the supernatural thriller I Will Follow You Into the Dark and stopped by our LA studios to talk about the big life questions the movie raises. She also talked about how her world changed when she was cast on The OC at just 16 years old — and why she now chooses to split her time between England, NYC, and LA. Mischa, who owns a fashion boutique in London and has a handbag line now in its ninth season, also reflected on indulging her passion for style in recent years and her own fashion favorites.
It's hard to believe, but The O.C. — aka the defining teen soap opera of the early 2000s — premiered 10 years ago this week. While the show has been off the air since 2007, its cultural impact has lasted through the years, including its hand in launching reality TV's fascination with the Southern California county. But did the lead actors' careers survive after the show was canceled? Click through to find out what Rachel Bilson, Adam Brody, Mischa Barton, and other cast members have been up to since The O.C. faded to black.
Mischa Barton stepped out in London sporting one of the hottest runway and street-style trends: print on print. She styled her dark blue jacquard pants with a floral-print tuxedo blazer and crisp white button-down, then finished off her look with purple printed loafers and a black Stella McCartney crocodile crossbody ($958). Re-create Mischa's mixed-print pairing by working her exact bag with blue jacquard trousers, an orange printed blazer, and ikat print loafers.
White is the ultimate Summer color and eyelet is one of the sweetest warm-weather patterns, so put them together and you get a must-have Summer item.

Before Summer ends, hop on this refreshing trend by shopping our favorite white eyelet dresses below. Then sport your pick with sneakers for a sporty feel or sandals for a resort look. Throw on pumps and a blazer for work and sexy heels and a leather jacket for night.
Mischa Barton wore a hot-pink swimsuit to hit the beach with her boyfriend, Sebastian Knapp, in Ibiza today. The couple ventured into the water, then retreated to the sand for kisses. The day in the sun came after Mischa and Sebastian joined British celebs like Pixie Geldof and Nick Grimshaw for the launch of DJ Tiesto's collection for Guess at Ibiza's Lio restaurant on Tuesday. Mischa and Sebastian are off in Spain, away from their current home base in London. Sebastian, a UK actor, has apparently been in Mischa's life for just a short time. Mischa started dating Sebastian just this month, and went public with a night out clubbing in London about a week ago.
Cork pumps are a staple in many a celebrity closet — they're as versatile as a nude pump and elongate legs for miles. Just take a look at Kate Hudson in her red dress, brown leather fringe Jimmy Choo bag, and Briant Atwood cork platform pumps in NYC; Mischa Barton finishing her white cutout dress with Christian Louboutin cork platform pumps; and Rihanna sporting her Louboutin pointy cork pumps with jeans, a white blouse, and Fendi clutch. Whether you take your cork shoes in a platform pump, slingback, or peep toe, you can wear them with everything from flirty daytime Summer dresses to nighttime cocktail gowns to casual jeans. If you don't yet have a pair, shop our favorite cork pumps below.
It's official: blazers are one of the hottest items in Hollywood. And to keep them fresh, blazers are taking on entirely new forms. There are bright blazers like cobalt blue, light blazers like soft pink, and even funky ikat blazers. But the sweetest of all is the polka-dot blazer, which Mischa Barton, Kate Mara, and Molly Sims have all worn in various colors and styles. And as you can see from these three ladies, they can easily go from casual to dressy with the right accessories. Mischa dressed her polka dots down with jeans and oxford flats, Kate dressed hers up with a sheer blouse and pumps, while Molly went in an edgy direction via leather pants. If you don't have a dotted blazer in your mix, shop one of our favorites below and wear them like these three stars did.
Today is Queen Elizabeth II's first official event as part of her Diamond Jubilee Central Weekend. It's the 233rd Epsom Derby — this year named the Diamond Jubilee Derby in honor of the queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The Epsom Derby kicked off with Ladies Day yesterday, and women sported eccentric hats and plenty of Union Jack attire. As the country's most prestigious horse race, the event draws a who's who of England — including, of course, the royal family. At today's event, Queen Elizabeth presented the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup to the winning horse, Camelot, who was trained by Aidan O'Brien and ridden by O'Brien's son, Joseph. Katherine Jenkins sang the national anthem, and members of the royal family like Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie attended the races — along with some stars including Mischa Barton — to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's big event. We've already taken a look back at the royal family's Epsom Derby presence over the years, but now we're offering a glimpse of this year's sightings. Check out the best moments from the Diamond Jubilee Derby now!
Over the weekend, Mischa Barton attended a fancy party in Sweden wearing a pink draped dress topped with a green-and-gold bib necklace and finished with black ankle-strap platform sandals. What we love most about Mischa's look is that it's simple and snazzy all at the same time. The pink hue of the dress made her stand out, while the green necklace added a daring contrast color. If you have a cocktail party or Summer wedding coming up, consider mimicking Mischa's look by donning an equally pretty pink dress with a green bib necklace and black strappy sandals.
