Mischa Barton Is Glad She Dodged Karl Lagerfeld's Acid Tongue

22 August 2012

Mischa Barton has revealed that she feels very ‘’lucky’’ not to have been stung by the acid tongue of Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. Don’t speak too soon, Misch…

The legendary designer drew attention to himself for all the wrong reasons earlier this year when he labelled British singer Adele ‘’a little too fat’’ and said that Kate Middleton’s younger sister Pippa ‘’should only show her back’’ because he doesn’t like her face.

But despite Karl obviously not checking himself out in the mirror of late, former O.C star Mischa is glad to reveal that she gets on very well with the clothes creator.

"Look, Karl's always been amazing to me and my career.

I have nothing negative to say about him. I think he said once I was the 'face of a generation' or something ridiculous," she told the British edition of OK! magazine.

"I've flown all around the world to go to different Chanel events.''

"But this is not great. You wouldn't want that said about you, but I've been lucky not to be on the receiving end!" she added.

And it looks as though Mischa, who has been buddying up to the Duchess of Cambridge’s brother James of late, is full of praise for Prince William’s wife.

The actress turned fashion designer said: "I think she's perfect. I like her style. She always looks put together, cute and pretty. I definitely wouldn't change her," she said.

"I think she's a much more positive role model than most we see in ads and magazines.

During the Olympics it's given people so many more positive role models and she's been one of the existing ones we look up to who's positive and healthy and cool,’’ she added.

Mischa has just opened an eponymous fashion boutique in the heart of East London’s trendy area, Spitalfield’s market, so we’re guessing she knows what she’s talking about.
