Mischa Barton of The OC fame pairs a feathered black blazer with leather slacks as she hits the Club Moda launch party in NYC
The OC alum Mischa Barton cut a youthful figure when she surfaced this week for a night on the town in New York City for the Club Moda launch.
Mischa, 36, who was born in London but raised in the Big Apple, looked at home as she caught a breath of fresh air out in Tribeca.
She rocked a pair of saucy black leather trousers and warded off the autumn chill in a blazer that featured a set of frou-frou feathery white cuffs.

Her latest sighting comes just three months after she set The OC fans wild by reuniting with her TV parents Melinda Clarke, 53, and Tate Donovan, 58.
They met up with one another for the Ep-ix And Chill convention in Charleston, where Melinda snapped a selfie of the three of them and posted it to Instagram.
‘SO THIS HAPPENED! Cooper family reunion!’ Melinda wrote. ‘Warmed my heart to see these two, @mischabarton and @t8dono, at @tripleellc in Charleston.’
‘So great to see you all y’all,’ Tate wrote warmly in the comments, while Mischa cooed: ‘Aww family photo so good to catch up with you.’

Mischa herself posted a group shot from Charleston with not only Tate and Melinda but also Gossip Girl alumni Chace Crawford and Jessica Szohr.
‘Ran into Gossip Girl last night what are the chances,’ Mischa wrote. ‘Just kidding we were there for a reason. It was truly great to catch up with mom and dad.’
Mischa began her career as a child actress on the New York stage in a play called Slavs! about the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The piece was by Tony Kushner, who shot to fame for Angels In America and more recently scripted multiple Spielberg films including Munich and Lincoln.

She shot to national fame as a teenager on The O.C., spending three seasons on the show before her character was killed off in a sensational car accident.
Last year Mischa pulled the curtain back on the behind-the-scenes drama that eventually resulted in her exit from the series.
‘It started pretty early on because it had a lot to do with them adding Rachel [Bilson] in last minute as, after the first season, a series regular and evening out everybody’s pay — and sort of general bullying from some of the men on set that kind of felt really s****y,’ she dished in an interview with E! News.

‘There were people on that set that were very mean to me. It wasn’t, like, the most ideal environment for a young, sensitive girl who’s also been thrust into stardom to have to put up with,’ added the blonde.
‘I was getting offers from big films at the time and having to turn them down. I had always been supporting in The Sixth Sense and any of those things,’ she noted.
‘My dream was to be offered those lead roles, so that’s what happened. It just felt like it was the best thing for me and my health and just in terms of not really feeling protected by my cast and crew at that point.’
