One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
For some unexplainable reason, Mischa Barton is the face of Phillip Plein's latest advertising campaign.
We're guessing she was cheaper than an actual model, but we're pretty sure they made up for the cost with all the photoshopping they did to her!
In the new ads, the out of work actress was looking like her pre-Mushy self back when she was on The OC.
We all know what Mischa really looks like, so why lie about it!?
