Playtime as Mischa takes the plunge with a new friend

24 NOVEMBER 2008
Having spent the weekend partying with a host of celebrities at the opening extravaganza of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, Mischa Barton later opted for some time out, frolicking with a dolphin in the resort's Aquaventure water park.

After the star-studded events of the previous night, Mischa swapped A-list company for a refreshing dip with the friendly-looking creature in the water park - just one of the extravagant hotel's many lavish attractions.

The inauguration ceremony, which at a cost of 13.5 million is believed to be the most expensive private party ever thrown, was attended by a roll call of famous faces including Charlize Theron and the Duchess of York. The lavish bash featured performances by pop sensation Kylie Minogue and a fireworks display to rival that of the Beijing Olympics.
