Mischa Barton, in a glorious one-sleeved ivory blouse and ruffled black skirt — Chanel, no less — accepted the InStyle Germany VIPer award from legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld on last week in Berlin. The high lord of fashion gushed over the former OC star, saying: “So many girls want to look like Mischa Barton. She is a fashion role model for an entire generation. I am so happy to be able to present her with the VIPer Award.” Barton, in town with her mother, gushed right back, reports Bunte. “For so long I’ve wished that I would receive an award from Karl. Today my dream came true.” The VIPer Award, says Patricia Riekel, editorial director of InStyle, “was inspired by the VIPer Room in Hollywood. This club, which Johnny Depp founded, is the top address for all stylish and famous personalities.”

Mischa is really worthy of this award! I think she’s a beautiful stylish and elegant fashion role model for every girl and woman!

Why would Karl Lagerfeld gave Mischa Barton a style award? She dress like every other actresses in Hollywood. Her style is not at all original and just primarily copy looks duplicating over and over again. I really don’t see her as a fashion icon in any sense, beside the fact that she’s a pretty girl and that’s it.
