Mischa Barton heads Down Under for David Jones

Helen Lee July 23, 2006 56

Firstly, for those of you who don’t know, David Jones is one of Australia’s biggest department stores. Stocking international designers from Armani and Prada to Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, as well as hot Aussie designers from Sass & Bide, Collette Dinnigan, Willow, Alice McCall and Kirrily Johnson. They’re known for throwing quite a party together for their Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer VIP launch collections.

Well this time around they have lured Mischa Barton (pictured left out and about in London) down under for a “shopping trip” as part of a whirlwind visit to attend both the Melbourne and Sydney VIP nights, and she will be “stocking up on the latest from Australian designers,” she told

She follows in the footsteps of Paris Hilton and Eva Longoria, who both did whirlwind visits to Australia, with both of them attending Melbournes Spring Racing Carnival, while Paris also did a bit of modeling at Australian Fashion Week for British born designer, Wayne Cooper.

I wonder what Mischa is doing… besides looking pretty on the red carpet. She has reportedly been paid AUD$100,000 for her appearance (on top of hotel and travel costs ofcourse).

Also I wonder if Megan Gale, David Jones’s “face” will be coming down to share the spotlight with her… last time Megan was trumped by another big name was when she couldn’t make it back to Australia for her twice yearly gig with the department store, and David Jones managed to snag Linda Evangelista as her replacement in 2004.

    there were HEAPS of people there today, most were turned away without seeing her. the crowd was stretching out onto the street and stopping trams it was insane. i saw her briefly she was cheerful and nice. but god SO many people there all entrances were jammed.

  50. candice August 11, 2006 at 4:35 pm -

    just wanting to let ppls know that i saw mischa barton on the 10th of august at david jones in buorke st mall. it was jam packed 3 whole levels were full of ppl! only 150 ppl got to get autographs from her and most of them were waiting there since 6am! when we were leaving there were police out the front and david jones was closed. Megan gale was also there shes sooo pretty! she went around and hugged ppl and asked questions. mischa told ever1 about her keds and about whos fasion she loved. when i went to the back door of david jones mischa and megan were leaving in mercedes and there was bodyguards everywhere! 1 girl i spoke to sed that she got mischa’s autograph just as she was entering the back door at 1pm and i had to wait three hours just to c her! SOO BUMMED… u were allowed to stand anywhere and take as many photos as u wanted!! it was a great experience love u all candice xx

  51. Emma August 11, 2006 at 5:55 pm -

    Thanks for the info. :) See I couldn’t line up for that long….I had a really important test on at school and then we werent allowed to leave school early….haha even if I did leave early there was still no way that I would get an autograph or a pic if I went there late!
    What time did you start lining up? How long did Mischa stay for?

  52. marina August 11, 2006 at 9:04 pm -

    hey all of u i just have to say that yesterday was the best day of my whole life. no joke. i was only waiting for half an hour at the entrence where she came in. i was right in the front so i could see perfecly and i got her autograph, pictures and she shook my hand and talked to me very briefly but hey its alot more than some. after she had gone i started hyperventelating i was that excited. i seriously am over the moon. its made my whole year…no my whole centuary. i was standing next to a few bitchy girls who thought they were above it all. they were like swearing at me and saying that i should get over her but they were there for the same reason as me. but honestly nothing could ruin that day. OMG I SAW MICSHA. anyway sorry for the long blog. i wont hate u if u cbf reading it lol bye bloggers

  53. stacey August 12, 2006 at 1:17 pm -

    Clothing companies caontct the publicists and wardrobe departments of production companies and say I will give you this dress for free if you mention that it is my dress on air .The publicist or wardrobe department tells the celebrity to put this on The celebrity wears the dress on the red carpet or on a show or in a movie and the clothing company or designer gets their name mentioned.The rest of the world goes OMFG! She wore that! NOW I NEED TO WEAR THAT! It is a rare thing that a celebrity wears something that becomes a trend that they chose to wear themselves.Celebs hire people to organize their wordrobe for them Celebs don’t have time to do it themselves Celebs that dress themselves get caught on camera wearing sweat pants, a half shirt, and hooker pumps It is all a process of Getting my name out there and associated with a celeb to push the brand It has very little to do with what the celeb does themselves. The only real acception to the rule is Oprah This woman is a pimp for whatever it is she likes $50.00 pair of plastic flip flops? Say the name on air and suddenly every braindead, brainwashed house wife on earth HAS TO HAVE THEM!Cheese cake that sells for $100.00 for an 8 inch round that is mailed to you in a wooden box? She mentions how much she loves it and the company is almost put out of business with the wave of orders The cult of Oprah is one of the few things that is actually pushed by the celeb because she likes it and not because she gets free shwag if she says their name on air. She is WAY too rich to care about free shwag.
