Mischa Barton’s model series gets picked up by the CW – watch the first preview video here!


The CW must love fashionably beautiful television shows because they’ve picked up The Beautiful Life, a new television series based around the trials and tribulations of models in New York City, starring Mischa Barton as Sonja Stone.

The show marks Barton’s CW return after leaving The O.C. in 2006. She plays Sonja, a modeling ‘veteran’ who struggles to keep up with the fresh new faces in the New York modeling scene while Elle Macpherson adds some fashion cred to the show, stretching her acting muscle in a recurring role as Claudia, a former 1980s supermodel who’s the head of a modeling agency.

This is definitely a show to keep an eye on when it debuts in Fall 2009, did we mention it’s produced by Ashton Kutcher?

Aside from hot clothes and hot girls, we love that Zac Posen will make an appearance in the show – if one of the promotional shots are to be believed.

Check out a preview clip of the show below. They’re filming ‘live’ at a Zac Posen show where the show must go on and it’s about who fits into the outfit and who can work it on the runway.

What do you think of the preview clip?
