Mischa Barton's style makeover on 'Styled By June': What did you think of the premiere?
Barton sought out Ambrose because she was about to launch her handbag line in the U.S. and needed a fresh start with the media -- particularly the paparazzi and tabloids who haven't been particularly kind to her in the last five years.
Barton's handbags were a point of contention for Ambrose and her assistant, who was infuriated by Ambrose's suggestion that Barton carry handbags other than her own. Life-and-death stuff, this show.
In the end, Barton was pleased by a "positive" magazine blurb that read, " Mischa Barton, above, has cleaned up nicely thanks to stylist June Ambrose." We're a little confused as to why that back-handed compliment was considered an improvement, particularly given the fact that it was obviously pitched by Ambrose's PR team.
