Last night at the party for Burberry: The Beat for Men fragrance, Mischa Barton spoke about her new role on CW show, A Beautiful Life, produced by Ashton Kutcher.
"Ashton developed it about his life growing up as a model (Sonia) from Iowa, so it’s about the whole fashion world that he was in, and obviously I have a lot of friends in the fashion world, so I’m used to being around a lot of people in that,” Mischa shared. “[I play] a bitchy model-type character, like it’s a totally different character for me.”

Two new animal-testing bans for cosmetics manufacturers were enacted this week, making sure that our furry friends don't have to get made up to help us look good.
The first ban outlaws animal testing to check the safety of ingredients, and the second prohibits selling cosmetics that contain animal-tested ingredients. The bans are progressive and will be in full effect in the EU by 2013. Better late than never, right?
For Diddy, it's mo' money, mo' problems. For American Apparel, problems stem from having no money. Everyone's favourite one-stop for bafflingly small t-shirts and leggings of every variety narrowly avoided going bust today.
To the probable dismay of Cathy Horyn, That Decade popped up at Louis Vuitton - albeit things were more gothic than shock-neon.
Karl Lagerfeld took power dressing to a new level at his Chanel show this week. The Chanel briefcase is already a fall must-have....
