WATCH Mischa Barton’s brilliant return to fashion TV

Confession: when we saw the pictures of Mischa Barton filming her new show, The Beautiful Life, in Regent's Park, we didn't have much confidence in her or it. After all, she has been swanning around for so long we had forgotten why she was famous in the first place. But, hold the phones, we have just watched the first clip of The Beautiful Life, and we think that it might revive her acting career (and that is despite Zac Posen's embarrassingly bad acting debut - ‘Wowee') - and give us a new fashion TV obsession. Set in the wonderful world of models, Mischa stars as a super whose star is fading and girth is widening, but who can't accept either. Elle Macpherson plays the fierce model agent. Uh oh. This Ashton Kutcher production looks set to destroy our social lives, just as Gossip Girl has, and we can't wait. Bitchiness, competitiveness, heavy eye make-up, strutting and ‘make that necklace a belt' amazing-ness. It might not be on screens in the US until autumn - and god knows when in the UK - but we have booked the sofa in preparation. Mischa Barton, welcome back! [NY Magazine]
