Is Mischa Barton the next celebrity designer on the New Look payroll? It seems fairly unlikely, but in this age of celebrity collaborations I suppose anything is possible. The actress's laid back style has reportedly impressed the British retailer, that they have asked her to design a collection for them.

Meanwhile, Mischa attended Britain's Best 2008 awards yesterday, where she presented designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa with the award for Best Business (pictured above). Barton's black lace dress, featuring feather hem was from Marchesa's A/W '08 collection.

Speaking of Marchesa, the designer duo have launched a cosmetics collection in conjunction with Stila. The partnership extends from four seasons worth of ready-to-wear shows, with the make-up brand creating the beauty looks for each show.

The colours from Marchesa's A/W '08 collection have been used to create a new Stila colour collection, known as The Backstage Beauty Collection, soon to be available from Sephora.

"Like Christian Louboutin shoes, Stila colors were essential to finishing our look for the show," said Chapman.
