Mischa Barton happy to escape Lagerfeld's wrath

Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton feels "lucky" not to have been on the "receiving end" of Karl Lagerfeld's taunts.

The iconic designer caused a stir earlier this year when he branded British singer Adele "a little too fat" and said that the Duchess of Cambridge's sister Pippa Middleton "should only show her back."

Mischa is glad she gets on well with the controversial 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!"

Mischa is full of praise for Prince William's wife Catherine. The actress - who recently unveiled her own clothing boutique in London - admires the British royal's chic sense of style.

"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."
