The “O C ” actress Mischa Barton attended the official Â opening of the summer sale at the luxury department store, Harrods in London June 27, 2009 in theÂ Pet Department!Â
She’s seen cuddling a pair of Dachshund puppies here.
She apparently is perpetuating a Harrod’s tradition of the owner of the store, Mohammed Al FayedÂ placing a puppyÂ on her headÂ in lieu of a crown. We can only assume this is the case, Â since it looks like this tradtion dates back at least to 2007 when Sara Michelle Gellar got the same royal treatment (see below). He was probably scared to put a puppy on Kim Catrall’s head in 2008.
I can’t comment on the selling of puppies in a department store, other than to say it seems odd.
Oh, those crazyÂ luxury department store owners sure know how to have fun, don’t they?
