When we heard Mischa Barton was in town to promote the new range of Herbal Essence's hair care, we couldn't resist popping into her hotel suite for a wee girly chat about lipstick, eyeliner, her favourite Malibu beauty tips and just how many headbands she actually does own. Turns out Mischa – looking ultra-cool in Charlotte Olympia heels, leather trousers and a military-style Temperley jacket – was in quite the confessional mood. So after we'd clocked her fashion credentials (she turned up to the P&G Beauty Awards later on in a gorgeous Alberta Ferretti S/S '09 dress), we got down to the serious business of gossiping. Check out the video to find out Mischa's must-have products, her favourite place to hang out in London and just who she had posters of on her bedroom wall as a teenager.
