Mischa Barton to replace 14-year-old model as the face of Australian Fashion Week
It's day one of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (RAFW) and the dramas have already begun.
Mischa Barton has been quickly shoved in to represent RAFW after 14-year-old Polish model Monika Jagaciak was dropped from headlining the event due to her young age.
According to news reports Barton, who is currently in Australia for the MTV Music Awards, was placed onto the front rows this morning at shows such as Kirrily Johnston in a last ditch effort to 'repair' RAFW.
"Actress Mischa Barton has been moved into the front row at Australian Fashion Week as organisers scramble to put an acceptable face to the frock fest," reported News.com.au today.
I suppose it is no coincidence then that Barton, who is managed by IMG in New York, is also the same management firm behind RAFW.
