Michsa Barton Returns from Dead, Shows Up at Fashion Show

Marissa Cooper is dead!

That's not relevant to this story about former OC star, Mischa Barton, but we just wanted to scream it aloud in ecstasy. Fortunately for this tiny actress, there's an easy way to make money aside from actually earning it with any talent: paid public appearances.

Barton was reportedly paid more than $100,000 for her appearance at David Jones' 2006 summer collection fashion show. Call us conspiracy theorists, but The Gossip thinks Mr. Jones wants a certain someone sport his clothes around Hollywood.

Of course, we wonder how anyone would see the outfits on Barton. What if she turned sideways?

Despite gracing the pages of this month's Vanity Fair, Mischa doesn't consider herself any kind of fashion expert.

"Definitely there's some things from these designers that I want to wear to events … I think it's so funny when people say you're a trendsetter," she said, "I don't know, I'm not good at trends, I don't think I follow trends really."

She certainly doesn't follow decorum or good sense. At a press conference held before the fashion show, Barton wasn't even sure what local designer she was wearing, prompting David Jones' general manager to say:

"She's wearing Scanlan & Theodore and Mischa loves it. Alice McCall she also really enjoys wearing."

But we digress. The point remains: Marissa Cooper is dead!

Mischa Barton Quotes

I don’t care if people try to put me down. I just think it’s so sad that that’s what people spend their time doing. It might sound crazy, but I’m a really nice person.

Mischa Barton

That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested. I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with.
