A southern California native, Rachel Bilson was born August 25, 1981 in Los Angeles, California. Bilson was one of many in a long showbiz family history including her father, writer/director Danny Bilson, her great grandfather who worked in the trailers at RKO Pictures as well as her great grandmother who was also a screenwriter. During her youth Bilson was involved in a car crash that left her with occasional memory loss and migraines, although the incident prompted her to become a more cautious teen. In 1996 Rachel graduated from Notre Dame High School determined to pursue a career in acting. Beginning with small roles on commercials for products such as Raisin Bran and Pepto-Bismol, Bilson soon graduated to more respected roles on series such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. After being casted to FOX’s wildly successful evening drama The O.C. in 2003, Bilson, gracing Maxim Magazine’s Hot 100 List for 2005, fell head over heels for onscreen boyfriend Adam Brody (Seth Cohen), with whom she purchased a house with in late 2004.

It’s a good thing a room has four corners, because you know each of these four and her posse took up camp in one of them! While now famous rivals Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie claim to have not spoken to one another since filming the season finale of the most recent “Simple Life”, I am still holding strong to my theory that they are still friends and are playing up this whole hatred for publicity! And Mischa and Rachel, these two used to be BFF while filming “The OC”, but now are barely ever seen together and now that Mischa has been killed off of the show, probably won’t hang for a while! Geez, can’t everyone just get along!
Much like there is a big fat no logo through the parking sign, there is a big fat no nudity clause in Rachel Bilson's film contract! In her new film, The Last Kiss, Rachel refused to shed the clothes with co-star Zach Braff, so the studio was forced to call in a body double! I think that it's very admirable that Rachel stood her ground, because it might not be so easy to get everything you want on your first film! Either way, the movie sounds hot, even though there will be no Rachel-in-her-birthday-suit action.
Rachel Bilson’s much hyped show, The OC, has only been signed for 16, as opposed to the usual 22, episodes for the upcoming fall season. This much shorter season could be because the teens have graduated from high school, and writers are now faced with the challenge of keeping the show realistic and not falling prey to the usual teen-drama college life, with all the characters attending college together. Rachel’s character, Summer, will be attending Brown University in the upcoming season, so even if she must part ways from boyfriend Seth, at least we will be able to see what cute cold-weather clothes she’ll be rockin’!
Strolling the streets with her new puppy, Rachel Bilson goes in-cognito in hopes to avoid those pesky paparazzi. No such luck unfortunately, but she does have her coffee and snuggly companion to keep her company. As the season finale of Rachel's hit show, "The OC", gets closer to airing, fans are left to guess about whether her character, Summer, will die. Fox is claiming that one of the main characters may not return to the OC next season, so only time can tell if Rachel will make it back. Oh, the drama!
Rachel was just voted the most popular OC actress by the Sky Showbiz poll. Although she is popular with the fans, Rachel has had issues with reminders of a near fatal car accident when she was just 14 years old. She has a scar above her right eye and says that she still suffers from migraines and memory loss because of the accident.
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 19 2013 in Barbados. Rachel Bilson was photographed alongside her honey Hayden Christensen while on vacation in Barbados on April 19, sporting an easy, relaxed look for the afternoon. Donning a printed shift dress, Rachel accessorized with a pair of flip flops, a printed bag and a pair of brown Ray-Ban Wayfarers. To get Rachel's casual look on this occasion, choose one of Voom by Joy Han's similarly easy, printed frocks: try either the Suzy Bell Sleeve Dress in Multi, the Ira Off Shoulder Dress in Yellow or the Anette Dress in White. From there, add on Ray-Ban's New Wayfarer in Tortoise and you'll be good to go! The "Hart of Dixie" actress recently appeared on the cover of the May 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan, and chatted with the mag about being a good girlfriend and wanting to have children in the near future. Said RB: "I’m a really good girlfriend – I always put all that first in my life. I’m definitely the person who would make him his favorite dinner to come home to. I definitely have family on the brain. Having kids is something I want to see in my future – I hope." It feels like Rachel and Hayden have been together forever - I definitely think that having kids will happen sooner than later for them.
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 10 2012 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson and Lauren Conrad were both spotted celebrating the one year anniversary of ShoeMint that was held at Laurel Hardware in West Hollywood on November 10, taking a moment to smile for the cameras before indulging in their intimate brunch gathering. When it came to their personal style, both fashionistas couldn't have gone a different route; while Rachel opted for a bohemian-inspired ensemble with an autumnal color scheme, Lauren stuck to her usual girly style with this sweet-as-sugar lace number. While both looks are going to be broken down, let's start with Rachel. Pairing a colorful maxi dress (take your pick between Hale Bob's Maxi Silk Dress in Rust and Veronica M's Sleeveless Maxi Dress in Reef) with a smart black blazer (you can't go wrong with Tart's Tallie Blazer in Black), RB then slipped into a pair of black leather booties. For a taller pair that will do you well as these cold winter months approach, check out Report's Duke Boot in Black. Lauren, on the other hand, chose a super feminine cream lace dress (Free People's Gypsy Lace Dress in Tea is super similar; Kay Unger's V-Neck Lace Dress in Silver would be lovely for upcoming holiday parties) that she paired with nude Louboutins and minimal jewelry. Which starlet's look do you like better, everyone?
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 02 2012 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was photographed at the Piperlime Best Fashion Friends Night that was held at the Piperlime boutique in the SoHo neighborhood of NYC, looking cute as ever as she posed on the red carpet. For her outfit, Rachel paired a tan sweater (like Joie's Dewberry Sweater in Bisque) under a classic black blazer (get the look with Tart's Tallie Blazer in Black), and then slipped into a pair of black skinny jeans (like Goldsign's Lure in Black). Accessory wise, RB toted a bright red Loeffler Randall bag and wore a gold spike necklace; for an option that makes a savage style statement, check out Angel Court's Dangerfield Necklace in Antique Brass. Minimal makeup and a top bun completed Rachel's look. What are your thoughts on this outfit of Rachel's, everyone - is it a winner or a loser in your eyes. If you're a fan of Bilson's, you'll know that her popular CW show "Hart of Dixie" recently premiered, and she recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly about the new season. Rachel spoke to the mag about her character's predicament of having to choose between two guys, saying: "It’s quite a pickle Zoe is in. [But] I think it’s a sweet pickle because what girl doesn’t want two guys?" That's one way to put it!
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 15 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was seen leaving lunch with a friend in LA on August 15, sporting a printed ensemble perfect for a warm summer day. Wearing a mixed print Rag & Bone dress (for two similar items, check out either Hale Bob's Mission Dress in Grey or Vintage Havana's Printed Dress in Black) with a pair of nude Rebecca Minkoff sandals (check out Koolaburra's Daphne in Nude) and a Chloé shoulder bag (for a tote in a similar hue, try Merci Marie's Tazrun Large Handbag in Tan), Rachel kept the rest of her accessories to a minimum, choosing only a pair of black sunglasses to complete her outfit. Are you into this look on Rachel, everyone - or do you think she's capable of better? For those of you who are fans of Rachel's CW show "Hart of Dixie," the adorable actress recently offered a teaser about what to expect for the second season. According to Bilson: "It’s going to be fun. Well, there's definitely going to be a lot of love-triangle action. Team George vs. Team Wade. So that's going to be fun to play with. George is single. So that leaves that option open, and it's going to be fun. Wade's character is the fun, bad boy, and George's character is the more put together, responsible guy. So it's a little bit of both. I guess it's just personal preference." Will any of you be tuning in to "Hart of Dixie"'s second season?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 29 2012 in Beverly Hills, CA. Rachel Bilson was photographed looking pretty and polished as she posed on the red carpet for the CW, CBS and Showtime Television Critics Association’s Summer Party 2012, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on July 29. For her red carpet outfit, Rachel paired an ivory Malene Birger sleeveless blouse with a black bow accent (to steal Rachel's style, try one of Free People's similar blouses, such as the Silky Crepe Button Down in Ivory, or the Slim Chiffon Top in Ivory for a simpler version) with a pair of black Alexander McQueen peplum pants (try Nanette Lepore's Persuade Me Pant in Black), and then slipped into a pair of pointed toe Shoemint pumps to complete her look. What are your thoughts on Bilson's semi-casual, yet still very chic, ensemble here? Do you think the look could have benefited from a piece of jewelry, such as Satya Jewelry's Beyond the Clouds Ring in Turquoise, or do you like that it is accessory-free? In other fun RB news, she recently told Glamour what her favorite episode of "The O.C." was! Any guesses? Rachel says: "Probably the Spiderman episode where I kissed Seth upside down. There were so many fun episodes that it's hard to say, but [the Chrismukkah episodes] always stands out too." Did any of you have a favorite episode of this show?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 06 2012 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted doing some shopping at furniture store West Elm with boyfriend Hayden Christensen in West Hollywood on July 6, and was sipping on a smoothie as the paparazzi snapped away. For her shopping 'fit, Rachel wore a casual ensemble that consisted of a sleeveless button up top (Free People's Slim Chiffon Top in Black is nearly identical) and faded black skinny jeans (like JET by John Eshaya's Faded Skinny in Black), along with a pair of Ray-Ban New Wayfarers in Tortoise) and a white tote (try Zambos & Siega's Chloe Bag in Ivory). A pair of two-tone orange and magenta flats finished off RB's street style ensemble. Are you into it, everyone? Is this something you would wear for an afternoon of furniture shopping with your beau? In other Rachel news, the "Hart of Dixie" star recently opened up about her simple style secrets! When it comes to her one must-have, Rachel said: "A simple black dress paired with a statement shoe and minimalist hair and jewelery." RB continued, "I like to mix designer with vintage clothing. I love finding little hole-in-the-wall vintage stores. I like to be comfortable. I don't want to wear things that are high maintenance. I'm a jeans girl. I love Topshop. Every time I'm in New York I head there. I love Zara, too. Their clothes are so cute." Her tips are very relatable!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 15 2012 in Beverly Hills, CA. Stylish pals Rachel Bilson and Kristen Bell were spotted doing some shopping in Beverly Hills on June 15, and both ladies seem to have gotten the "bring your Coach Legacy Leather Duffle Bag" memo. Style coincidence or shrewd PR move on behalf of the handbag brand? Kristen opted for the brown version (for a similar option, check out Julie K Handbags' Lorri Chain in Cognac) with an over-the-shoulder strap, while Bilson went green (Zambos & Siega's Suede Izzy Bag in Grass is an interesting option if you like the idea of rocking a green tote. When it came to their outfit, Kristen started with a cute pair of floral skinny jeans (get the look with Level 99's Rose Print Pant in Cream) and a bleached denim button up shirt (try Joe's Jeans' Braided Western in Alexandria), and then wore a pair of well worn brown leather boots and a pair of vintage looking sunglasses. Rachel, on the other hand, wore a cute white dress (like Anna Sui's Tunic in Cream) that she topped off with a denim jacket (try Level 99's Denim Jacket in Mission) and a pair of brown sunnies. Leopard print sandals with black buckle accents finished off her look. What's your take on these two outfits, readers - who got their look right?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 01 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Photographed leaving breakfast with beau Hayden Christensen earlier today, June 1, in LA, Rachel Bilson looked totally down in the dumps as the paparazzi took her picture. Maybe she and Hayden had an argument at breakfast? Focusing on her fashion now, Rachel wore a pair of skinny jeans printed with a star pattern (for two pairs of jeans with unique prints, check out AG Jeans' Stilt in Ikat Blue or Rich & Skinny's Legacy Snake Print Pant in Caz) that she paired with a white tee and military jacket (for a similar, sleeveless version, try Nanette Lepore's Bonus Jacket in Army). On the accessories front, RB toted a white satchel and wore a complementary pair of sandals, and finished things off with - as usual - a pair of Ray-Ban's New Wayfarer in Black. Would you rock this look for a day out with your guy, everyone? It seems as though I am not the only one who noticed how grumpy Bilson looks here, as Entertainment Wise also ran an article titled "Trouble In Paradise? Hayden Christensen And Rachel Bilson Look Miserable Together!" According to the piece: "If Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson's relationship is smelling of roses, they're doing a great job covering it up. Maybe it was just the fact it was first thing in the morning, or maybe they weren't impressed at having photographers ambush them after breakfast, but the couple looked incredibly grumpy as they strolled down a street in LA today. Walking on complete opposite sides of the sidewalk, they certainly didn't look particularly close. At least not physically, anyway." What's your take on RB's body language here, everyone?
Rachel Bilson seen on May 08 2012 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was photographed at the launch of her new Edie Rose Home Collection that was held at Macy's Herald Square in NYC on May 8, flashing a huge smile and giving the thumbs up to the photographers. For her outfit, Rachel chose a printed maxi Theyskens' Theory dress under a dark grey ladylike jacket, and then wore a pair of ShoeMint heels. To get this look, opt for either Issa London's Criss Cross Long Dress in Jodhpur Black or Karen ZAMBOS' Hannah Dress in Bohemian, and wear under Jenny Han's Crop Jacket in Black/Grey. Or, you can opt for the same Karen ZAMBOS pattern in skirt form, the Abby Skirt in Bohemian, and pair it with a top under the jacket if you're not feeling like wearing a maxi dress. What are your thoughts on RB's ensemble here, readers? Rachel spoke out about the launch of her home collection when it launched last year, saying: "I was on what seemed like an endless search for really cute dishware and tabletop items when I thought it would be fun to design what I was looking for. I have a passion for dishes and thought it would be a great opportunity to design exactly what I wanted – cute and stylish entertaining and dining ware that is affordable." Sounds like she found a hole in the market and filled it with her own cute design ideas. Go Rachel!
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 15 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was the woman of the hour at the celebration of her most recent Nylon cover, which was held at Sherbourne in LA on November 15. It always seems to me like Rachel is on the cover of Nylon at least once a year... she's like the perfect cover girl for the quirky mag. For her partygoing outfit, Rachel started with a cuffed, skinny pair of Goldsign jeans (for a similar pair, try Current/Elliot's Stiletto Jean in Voyage) and a sheer black t-shirt from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's line The Row (try Kimberly Taylor's Crinkled T-Shirt in Black), and then topped things off with Vanessa Bruno's Fall 2011 shimmering blazer (for equal amounts of sparkle, check out Hale Bob's Sequin Jacket in Copper or Gold Hawk's Hollywodo Jacket in Military Blue) and a vintage hat. An oversized Miu Miu clutch (which was a little too oversized, in my mind) finished off Rachel's ensemble. What are your thoughts on this look, everyone - love it or lose it? In other Bilson news, it seems that the "Hart of Dixie" star is considering having kids in the somewhat near future. However, she wants to "do it right." She tells Celebrity Baby Scoop: "I've always wanted kids - it's sort of like an obsession, but I want to do it right, where I don't have to work. I've heard the stories, and I know it's possible. I don't know if I want that, though. I'm not sure if I want to continue to work when I have kids. So kids equal the end of RB as an actress? What happens if her new CW show really takes off? Says Rachel, "I don't think I want to wait too long to have children, either. You have to weigh up your options. I'll figure it out when I get there. I'm a firm believer that everything will fall into place and it will all work out." Wise words!
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 09 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth were spotted posing and smiling for the one-year anniversary of designer Vanessa Bruno's Los Angels flagship store, a soiree that was held at Lucques on November 9. Both beautiful babes wore Vanessa Bruno (of course), and let's start with Rachel for the outfit breakdown. Rachel chose a black blazer (try Tibi's Velveteen Blazer in Black) and skirt (for some added flare, check out Aaron Ashe's Paris Skirt in Black Wool) to start, and then paired them with a ruffled blouse (take a peek a Fifteen-Twenty's Ruffle Front Top in Slate) and black heels. Kate, on the other hand, wore a white shift dress with silver detailing (take your pick between Twinkle by Wenlan's Wrapped and Ready Dress in Cream/Black or Bianca Nero's Shift Dress with Shirred Neck in Ivory), and then accessorized with a grey bag (try Julie K Handbags' Meg Clasp Bag in Gunmetal) and black tights. Which young fashionista do you think got it right, readers? Rachel recently dished to Huffington Post about topics ranging from what she likes to do in her down time ("I like to cook and hang out in my PJs. I like to cook homey, comfy foods, meatloaf and chili and Italian food like lasagna. I'm half Italian so I make it all myself.") to her current fashion crushes and advice ("Right now I'm really into chunky cable knit sweaters. I love to throw them on with jeans or maxi skirts. I think they look great. My fashion advice is to experiment and wear what makes you feel comfortable."), in addition to her relationship with her two much-younger half sisters. Says Rachel: "I have two half-sisters, one is almost 10 and the other is 4. I know all the Bieber songs and Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. I showed them "The Princess Bride" recently which is one of my favorites. We watch all the Disney movies together. Cute!
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 06 2011 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted fulfilling her promotional duties as she made her way into the Sirius XM Radio Studios in NYC on October 6, working a feminine and delicate outfit that's just adorable. Rachel started with a white lace Suno lace frock (for two similar options, try Vava by Joy Han's Lace Ruffle Dress in Ivory or Meghan Los Angeles' Nirvana Lace Tunic in Ivory) that she paired with a blush colored Vanessa Bruno blazer (Laugh, Cry, Repeat's Cropped Sleeve Blazer in Grey has a similar silhouette and comes in a seasonally appropriate shade) and dove grey suede platforms. A black Chanel tote (if you're looking for a great tote that's a bit more wallet-friendly than Chanel, try Cassandra's Caroline Large Tote in Black), black Wayfarers, a glossy waves completed RB's outfit. Are you a fan? While Rachel's new CW show "Hart of Dixie" premiered recently, it seems that the stylish starlet has other business ventures in the works as well. She has just been named a celebrity designer for ShoeMint, which is in the same family as Kate Bosworth's JewelMint and the Olsen twins' StyleMint. Says Rachel of the e-commerce shoe store, "I loved the idea of designing really cute shoes that are affordable and accessible. The whole idea behind the BeachMint brand makes the online shopping experience so personal.” Are any of you planning on checking out Rachel's shoes when they debut?
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 02 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. "Hart of Dixie" star Rachel Bilson was spotted on a casual stroll around The Grove in LA on October 2, enjoying the sunny day with a group of gal pals. For her look, Rachel wore Alexa Chung for Madewell's Thora Shorts (for a similar pair, try Kasil Workshop's Taylor Jacobson Geek Short in Creamsickle) and a simple black t-shirt (like Boulee's Alexa in Black), and of course her favorite Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. Up next, Rachel carried along a polka dot sweater, slipped into a pair of black flats (for a similarly unique pair, check out Michael Kors' Black Sandal), and toted a black bag with fringed detailing. For something similar, check out Julie K Handbags' Terri in Black Cobra. Do you like this casual look on Rachel, readers? RB is making the press rounds now that she's back on TV, and spoke to MTV about her new project. She said: "My character is Zoe Hart. She wants to be a cardiothoracic surgeon, so she's very ambitious, and smart, and independent, which I admire, but she's a little—she doesn't have good bedside manner and not the best social skills, so she's a fun character to play. But, yeah, she goes to Bluebell to sort of figure it out. Everyone should tune into the premiere of 'Hart of Dixie' because it's a lot of fun and there's cute boys!" Did any of you check out the season premiere?
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 08 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Celebrating Fashion's Night Out while fulfilling her promotional duties, Rachel Bilson attended the Sunglass Hut store inside the Beverly Center in LA on September 8 as the brand's Style Director. Rachel's outfit consisted of a white Vanessa Bruno maxi skirt (like Free People's Cascade Convertible Skirt in Ivory) that she paired with a black A.L.C. tank (try either Splendid's 1 x 1 Tank in Black or Hard Tail's Lycra Tear Drop Tank in Black) and chic black blazer (such as Nanette Lepore's Le Smoking Jacket in Black). A Luv AJ headband and Chloe wedges completed Bilson's sweet yet safe ensemble. Do you like this black and white look on Rachel, readers? Rachel is finally returning full-time to TV this fall with her CW show "Hart of Dixie," and E! Online has declared it one of five fall shows they love! According to E!, "We want to bear hug this show and never ever let it go. It is more than a worthy successor to the feel-good WB drama throne. If Everwood picked up Gilmore Girls at a bar for a night of quippy fun, the result would be the adorable Hart of Dixie. Sprinkle some Doc Hollywood on that baby for good measure." Sounds like it's definitely worth checking out!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 08 2011 in Los Feliz, CA. Making a quick stop to pick up a pie at House of Pies in Los Feliz on July 8, Rachel Bilson opted for an earthy, ethereal look as she made her way back to her car. Starting with a gauzy lace-embellished maxi skirt (for something similar, check out Free People's Cascade Convertible Skirt in Ivory), Rachel wore a classic white tank (like either Hard Tail's slouchy Boxy Racer Tank in Cream or Minnie Rose's Spacedye Rib Tank in White) along with her trademark Ray-Ban Wayfarers and toted a grey quilted Chanel tote. For a bag in a similar shade of grey, take a peek at Julie K Handbags' Renee Lamb in Grey. I think Rachel looks great here, casual and totally cool. Is this an ensemble you would wear for a summer day? While it may have seemed like RB's career was stalled for quite a while after her "OC" days, it seems that she's ready to kick things into gear! It was recently announced that Bilson is joining the cast of the upcoming comedy The To Do List, in addition to a cast that already includes Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Scott Porter, D.C. Pierson and Dominic Dierkes. According to Cinema Blend, "The plot centers on a young, straight-A student about to graduate high school (Plaza) who decides that she is going to spend the summer before college gaining as much sexual experience as she can. The title refers to the list of all the sexual acts she wants to do." Is it just me, or does this film kind of just sound like a girl who wants to spend the summer being a ho?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 29 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Rachel Bilson was photographed doing some shopping in Beverly Hills on June 29, followed by a stop at a fresh juice bar alongside "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm. For her juicy look, Rachel wore a summery pair of cut off denim shorts (opt for a slightly longer inseam with Joe's Jeans' Sammy Short) along with Line & Dot's button down blouse (like Gold Hawk's Romantic Lace Shirt in Camel) and a grey tweed jacket (opt for Rebecca Taylor's Sparkle Tweed Jacket in Navy). For her outfit's finishing touches, RB wore her trademark pair of Ray-Ban aviators, toted a grey bag and slipped into a pair of black booties (similar to Juicy Couture's Cambria Bootie in Black). Is this something you would wear for a summertime shopping spree, ladies? In other Rachel news, it seems that the former "OC" starlet is sharing her summer faves, including her favorite vacation spot, must-have, and style tip. When it comes to a summer vacay, Rachel says: "The Golden Triangle Tented Camp, Four Seasons in Thailand. It’s pretty incredible. It’s a tented camp. They’re these luxury tents, and it’s an elephant camp, and it’s in the mountain region of Thailand where Laos, Thailand and Burma meet. It’s pretty spectacular. There’s lots to do. Just explore the local culture and everything like that is pretty neat." That sounds amazing! As far as her summer must have, she shares: "I’m really into good nail color. I think that’s a summer must-have. If you have a little sun, it’s good to have a bright color on your nails. Mimosa by Chanel is really great." Lastly, Rachel's summer style tip is: "I think it’s all about accessories. If you have a dress, if you have jeans and a t-shirt, if you have a statement necklace or shoe or bag or hair accessory... I think those really can pop an outfit." Do you agree, everyone?
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 17 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was snapped leaving a business meeting in West Hollywood on February 26, looking like the stylish starlet that she is. Starting with C&C California's Cheetah Roll Up Shirt (get a sexy, sheer version with Joe's Jeans' Leopard Military Blouse), Rachel donned a pair of black skinny jeans (take your pick between Work Custom Jeans' Viper Leggera in Black or Rock Revival's Suze Skinny, both are great) and toted an eye-catching studded black bag for her busy day. For a bag with a similar silhouette and minus the spikes, check out Julie K Handbags' Robin in Black. The finishing touches to Bilson's 'fit consisted of a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses (Rachel's trademark) and tan suede platform boots. Is Rachel's sidewalk style something you would wear for a day of errands, everyone? While it seems like Rachel is more of a fashionista than she is an actress these days, she's revealing her latest fashion must-haves to InStyle Magazine. Rachel says she's coveting Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony’s wool shorts - "These look like a skirt, but you don’t have to worry about those spring breezes!” along with a Suno cotton skirt. Another item she's lusting after> I love Monrow’s cotton-nylon blazer because it fits so well. I love how [it] has a surprise ruffle detail in the back." What are your spring wish-list items, friends?
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 02 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Heading to film an appearance on "Chelsea Lately" in LA on February 2, Rachel Bilson was hot on the promotional trail for her new film Waiting for Forever. For her stylish ensemble, Rachel paired a silk tie dress (while Rachel's definitely caught a major gust of wind in the photo on the left, check out two similar options here on CoutureCandy - Isabel Lu's Chain Link Spaghetti Dress in Nude or Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Shirt Dress with Tie in Mauve) with Vanessa Bruno's vibrant jacket (check out Free People's Sargeant Jacket in Ruby) and her favorite Maison Martin Margiela nude open toe booties. From there, Rachel donned Pamela Love's Quartz Tribal Necklace (get the look with Amrita Singh's Sonesta Necklace in Multi), a quilted Chanel tote bag, and her trademark Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. Are you digging RB's ensemble for her "Chelsea Lately" appearance, everyone? It seems that while filming Waiting for Forever," Rachel became best buds with British co-star Tom Sturridge. Says Bilson: "Tom, I absolutely love. Right off the bat we got on so well and he's like a brother to me. We formed such a great friendship we're lucky enough to still like each other after working together for such a long time. We were exploring Salt Lake City together so that was definitely an experience!" Any of you interested in checking out Rachel's new flick?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 11 2011 in Los Feliz, CA. Heading out for lunch with a friend in Los Feliz on January 11, Rachel Bilson bundled up in a cozy outfit but didn't seem too pleased to see the paparazzi. First, Rachel paired a cozy cape (for a cozy winter coat option, check out Hard Tail's Fleece Fur Collar Jacket in Black) with light wash skinny jeans (opt for either Genetic Denim's The Shane in Admiral or 7 For All Mankind's Roxanne Flood in Myrella) and her favorite furry boots. From there, Rachel wore a striped long sleeve t-shirt and toted a caramel colored leather tote - for something just as chic, check out Alexander Wang's Angela Small Pouchette in Smoke. Are you into Rachel's casual and cozy ensemble here, everyone? I think she looks adorable as always, but am not too sure about the cape. Let me know your thoughts! Recently, Rachel dished in InStyle that she has a new beverage obsession... Body Ecology Coconut Water. She said: "This is the only bottled coconut water I’ve found that tastes like an actual coconut. It’s so good – and good for you." I personally am not a fan of coconut, but for those of you who do love coconut water, have you tried this kind? On another note, I wonder how much Rachel was compensated for plugging the brand?
Rachel Bilson seen on Dec 14 2010 in Glendale, CA. Spotted out for some shopping at Sur La Table in Glendale, CA on December 14, Rachel Bilson did her best to avoid the paparazzi as she did some Christmas shopping. Starting with a pair of skinny grey jeans, like Genetic Denim's The Shane in Silver, Rachel then wore a comfy black sweatshirt (like Alternative Apparel's Eco Slouchy Pullover in Black) over a heather grey tee (try Monrow's Long Sleeve Oversized Tee in Dark Grey) and her favorite Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. Accessory wise, RB kept it pretty minimal - except, of course, for her shopping bags! - and finished her ensemble off with an edgy pair of black boots with studded straps. For a similar pair in a brownish-grey shade, try H by Hudson's Alba Calf Boot in Grey. Are you a fan of her look on this occasion? Rachel's been keeping an especially low profile as of late, something she's pretty notorious for. Unlike overexposing herself and her personal life a la certain other starlets, Rachel pretty much flies under the radar.

Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 10 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Photographed checking out some jewelry at the Chanel store in Beverly Hills on November 10, Rachel Bilson looked adorable as ever. For her outfit, Rachel paired a striped t-shirt (for something similar, try Gold Hawk's Stripe Square Tee in Black/White, or for a tank version, check out Rails' Deana Striped Tank in Navy/White) with James Jeans' Twiggy in Karma and a pair a tan lace up booties. From there, Rachel wore her favorite pair of Wayfarers and toted a black shoulder bag (loving Linea Pelle Collection's Perry Woven Mini Cross Body Purse in Black for fall) along with a bottle of what looks like some sort of lemon/lime soda. Are you liking Rachel's ensemble here, readers? If you're a fan of Rachel's, I'm sure you're aware that in addition to filming BFF & Baby with Kate Bosworth, Rachel is rumored to have gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend Hayden Christensen. A friend of the two said "They’re dating again, and JustJared reports: "A big tip-off that this is true: Hayden was spotted leaving Rachel’s house one week ago." Are you glad these two are back together?
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 15 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted looking incredibly chic as she ran errands in LA on October 15, taking a business meeting before doing some shopping with a few of her girlfriends. For her ensemble, Rachel wore a pair of the still-going-strong boyfriend jeans (Paige Premium Denim's Jimmy Jimmy in Denali are really similar to the pair that Rachel is wearing) along with an army green silk tank (take a peek at Gold Hawk's stunning Rain Stud Tunic in Dusty Grey) and a structured black jacket, and then toted a super enviable Chanel bag. She accessorized with her favorite Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and a dainty wrap bracelet (I love Ettika's Gold and Turquoise Wrap Bracelet), and added in a touch of exotic print with her two tone leopard print scarf. Goddis' Bondi Scarf Hoody in Ashes is a great alternative to leopard print. The final touch was a pair of gorgeous grey booties and a pair of black socks. I think it's great how Rachel cuffed her jeans a bit above the shoe line, to show off the hint of black socks below. So cute! What are your thoughts about this ensemble of RB's, readers? In Rachel related style news, she is speaking to InStyle about her tips for mixing and matching when it comes to outfits. She says, "It’s fun to add pops of color here and there. I like to start out with a basic canvas (a white T and jeans), and then add a yellow sweater (H&M has some great ones) and maybe pink shoes. If it’s too much, one or the other provides enough color. When combining hues, you want to use shades that complement one another, such as lavender and brown or blue and green." Do you agree with Rach's color mixing tips, readers?
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 26 2010 in Milan, Italy. Never one to let a good fashion event go by, Rachel Bilson was photographed at the Bulgari Presents Matthew Williamson Cocktail Party to celebrate his Spring/Summer 2011 collection on September 26 in Milan, Italy. Rachel looked gorgeous in a Christian Dior Fall 2010 silk and lace dress, along with a cropped black blazer, a white quilted Chanel clutch and nude Brian Atwood "Marlo" heels. To get a look similar to Rachel's, try a dress with a hint of lace (like Single's Scoop Neck Shift Dress in Black/Natural or Isabel Lu's Lace Cutout Zip Back Mini in Charcoal) and layer with a black blazer with an unusual silhouette, like Jack by BB Dakota's Jack Blazer in Black. From there, slip into a pair of leg lengthening nude pumps and tote a white clutch (Antoinette Lee Designs' Dolcita Clutch in White is very similar to Rachel's Chanel clutch) to complete your look. While Rachel is giving major pouty attitude in the photo on the left, I'm not sure if I'm fully loving this look. Your thoughts, readers? In Rachel career news, it seems that the petite starlet is teaming up with "The O.C." creator Josh Schwartz once more, as RB is slated to star in his brand new NBC hourlong drama "Ghost Angeles." The show "will revolve around a young woman living in Los Angeles who can talk to the dead." Hmmm... "Ghost Whisperer" deja vu anyone?
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 22 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Trying her best to avoid the shutterbugs, Rachel Bilson hit up Samy’s Camera in LA with a girlfriend on September 22, to pick some new equipment for her camera. For her look, Rachel started with a pair of black skinny jeans (just like Joe's Jeans' Chelsea Hi Ponte Black) and then added on a plaid shirt (try Arnold Zimberg's Playful Purple Plaid Shirt) that she seems to be pretty fond of - she wore this shirt for the first time back on December 18, 2009. Opting for a bit of preppy style, Rachel slipped a camel sweater (try BB Dakota's Thayer Sweater in Light Brown) over her plaid shirt, and finished things off with a pair of matching lace up booties and a big black shoulder bag (try Jalda's Fabric Masha in Black). Would any of you try Rachel's ensemble here for the upcoming autumn months, or are you not really diggin' this style as a whole? In other Bilson news, she is all set to appear on the season 6 premiere of "How I Met Your Mother," and is causing some controversy with her girl on girl kiss (with tongues) from the show. Check out the clip here and weigh in on whether or not you think this kiss is offensive. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 10 2010 in New York, NY. Stepping out to partake in Fashion's Night Out activities, Rachel Bilson was spotted at a Sunglass Hut (remember, Rach is the brand ambassador?) event on September 10 in NYC. Wearing leather Vanessa Bruno shorts (get the look with a pair that's a little more wallet friendly, like Ella Moss' Sedona Shorts in Black) and a patterned long sleeve blouse (try either Karen Zambos' Houston Top in Peacoat/Coral or Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti's Long Sleeve Ruched Front Top in White), Rachel slipped into a pair of killer peeptoe Maison Margiela booties (I love the cutouts of Coye Nokes' Joan Bootie in Embossed Black Python). On a beauty note, Rachel curled her usually straight locks, and wore a flash of bright pink lipstick. What are your thoughts of Rachel's look here, everyone? While at the FNO festivities, Rachel and Sunglass Hut announced a new blogger contest called Full Time Fabulous. According to the brand, "Sunglass Hut is looking for a FULL TIME FABULOUS Fashion Blogger to live, breathe and report from the cutting edge of cool in New York City and beyond. The winner will receive $100,000 + $1,000/month styling allowance, a fully-furnished apartment in Manhattan and VIP passes to fashion shows in NYC, Milan, London and more." Any of you interested in signing up? Sounds like a great opportunity!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 04 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Snapped looking quite summery and cheery as she ran errands and did some shopping at Nature Mart in Los Feliz on September 4, Rachel Bilson flashed her winning grin for photographers as she headed back to her car carrying grocery bags. There's really no better example of effortlessly casual summertime style, as Rachel basically just paired a breezy white sundress with nude sandals and a pair of Wayfarers. The pop of color comes from her bright turquoise wallet. CoutureCandy has a great selection of white dresses that are perfect for finishing out these last days of summer - take a look at Isabel Lu's Lacy Inlay Spaghetti Dress in White, Aude's Stacie Dress in White, Woo's Marlien Dress in White, and Luc by Lucy's Spaghetti Strap Suki Dress in White. Which one is your favorite? As I'm sure you know, Rachel was a part of the infamous "Bling Ring" Hollywood celebrity robberies, and in addition to Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Audrina Patridge and Brian Austin Green, Rachel appeared before the grand jury to testify against the burglars. The Associated Press obtained a copy of RB's testimony, where she said: "We have always sort of lived a very, I guess, trusting lifestyle, and we just didn't set the alarm. I now do, every time I leave the house. Even if it's for 20 minutes." Part of the goods that were stolen from Rachel included her mother's engagement ring - so sad. It's crazy how this crime ring hit SO many celebs!
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 26 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Spotted out and about for a sunny day in Los Feliz, Rachel Bilson did her best to deal with the lingering paparazzi as she made her way into a fashion studio. Rach is just back from a relaxing trip to Hawaii, where photos of her paddle boarding made their rounds online. For her ensemble, Rachel paired a tight red v-neck tee (for something a little more comfortable, try James Perse's Long Sleeve Relax Casual V in Bengali, or check out Splendid's similar 1x1 Vee Tee in White) with a pair of semi-unflattering Paige Premium Denim cut off shorts (for similar options, try James Jeans' Shorty in US Vintage and Joe's Jeans' Ex-Lover Flap Short in Shane). Is it just me, or do these shorts do nothing for RB's petite frame? They make her appear larger in the hips and thighs than she obviously is... what do you think? Bilson completed her look with a black tote, black Ray-Ban Wayfarers and gold metallic strappy wedges. After her trip to the studio, do you think Rachel made time for a little love in Los Feliz? That's what Perez Hilton thinks, and with none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. Perez says: "Very good sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Jake GyllenHO and Rachel Bilson have been ’spending a lot of time together’ – on the down low!" However, Gyllenhaal's rep says "Not true!" Guess that's the end of that, but if this was true, would you think that they'd make a cute couple?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 31 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. We've been seeing a lot of Rachel Bilson here on CoutureCandy lately, largely due to the fact that she's been cranking out some killer looks! Rach was photographed heading into the Four Seasons Hotel in LA on July 31, going for a relaxed jeans-and-a-tee look that she revved up with a pair of nude patent Christian Louboutin pumps (get a similar look without as hefty a price tag with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent). Rachel chose Paige Premium Denim's Jimmy Jimmy Jeans in Denali for her daily outing, along with a multicolored woven belt (try Motif 56's Pt. Megan Belt in Chocolate) and a comfy white t-shirt (try T by Alexander Wang's Classic Tee in White). Toting along her favorite Chanel raffia tote bag, Rachel completed her look with black Ray-Ban Wayfarers and a grey-blue shrug. What are your thoughts on Rachel's look... is this something you would try in your everyday life? Maybe everything except the towering heels? It's always interesting to me when I hear celebrities discussing other contemporary celebrities and their style, and it seems that Rachel is chatting about how she's envious of Sienna Miller's style career. Says Rachel: "I would love to do some more designing, but only if I could do it properly. I think Sienna Miller's clothing line with her sister, Twenty8Twelve, is really clever and the Olsen twins make great clothes... They are examples of talented people who have done it right. Some people just put their name on stuff, but those guys are authentic and know what they are doing because they have good taste. That's the difference." Not to shabby style crushes to have, I'd say!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 21 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted alongside fellow fashionista Kate Bosworth as the two girls showed up for UK clothing designer Vanessa Bruno's Spring 2010 Dinner in LA on July 21, and Rachel was wearing Bruno's designs from head to toe. She started with a striped tee (like Rachel Pally's Zuma Stripe Top in Zuma/White) that she paired with a vibrant orange Vanessa Bruno skirt (opt for a splash of bright color with Tt Collection's Renee Skirt in Peony) and complementary sandals. From there, Rachel chose a black Vanessa Bruno cape-style blazer (Wish's Glory Days Jacket in Black) and toted along a uniquely patterned clutch (like Inge Christopher's Jaipur East/West Frame Clutch in Multi) for her glamorous night out. I'm totally loving this entire look on Rachel - I have a borderline obsession with nautical stripes - but the one thing I'm not loving? The two-tone hair! I know grown out roots are all the rage right now, but this just looks sloppy and unkempt. I wish Rachel would choose between her natural brown or her dyed golden shade, but not let both collide in the center of her locks! What are your thoughts on this topic, readers?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 15 2010 in Studio City, CA. Proving that she's still a fan of the clog trend, Rachel Bilson was photographed out and about in Studio City on July 15, rocking a pair of black leather clogs with a pretty typical Bilson 'fit. Starting with a plaid shirt (like Joe's Jeans' Sexy Mili Plaid in Teal/Grey) tucked into a pair of cut off jean shorts (very similar to Tag Jeans' Malibu Cut Off Short in Outlaw), Rachel kept the rest of her look pretty simple, by donning her trademark black Ray Ban Wayfarer sunnies and toting a black messenger bag with chain strap (take your pick between Danielle Nicole's Katie Messenger in Black or Linea Pelle Collection's Dylan Messenger in Black). What are your thoughts about this outfit of Rachel's, readers? Are you ready for clogs to drift back into trend obscurity, or are you still into them? In other Bilson news, it seems that the stylish brunette has been staying pretty positive since word spread that she was taking a break from fiance Hayden Christensen. Rachel spoke out to InStyle Magazine about taking a summer vacation, and said: "Thailand has been on my top three list. A friend told me about the Golden Triangle, which is luxury tent meets luxury tree house." How fun! Rach also dished that horseback riding is something that she'll be doing a lot of this summer, adding: "I rode [horses] as a kid, and I loved it so much. I can’t wait to get back in the saddle." Cute!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 01 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Rachel Bilson was photographed running errands in Los Felis on July 1, opting for a casual summertime look as she made her way around town. Rachel started with a cuffed pair of grey skinny jeans (very similar to Genetic Denim's The Shane in Silver) that she paired with a slouchy white top (check out Bailey 44's Bird Watcher Top in White) and a lightweight black cardigan (try Wit.'s Light Weight Boyfriend Cardi in Black). She continued with a pair of oversized black sunnies, a brown shoulder strap bag, and a pair of studded bright green sandals (Gwyneth Shoes' Briee Strap Sandal in Lime are similar). I think Rach looks adorable here, and while this outfit is definitely something we've seen from RB before, there's no arguing that it works for her. What are your thoughts, everyone? In other Bilson news, it seems that the former "O.C." actress has chosen three bags from Coach's latest collection to benefit The Art Of Elysium. A portion of the proceeds earned from every bag sold is going to benefit the charitable organization, and Rachel's rep says: "Rachel looked over the selection of bags and decided which bags she would own herself, as well as the practicality of each bag for an appropriate time of day." How very methodical! It's always great to hear about celebs doing charity work - way to use their fame in a positive way!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 20 2010 in Antibes, France. Looking gorgeous as always, Rachel Bilson made an appearance at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS 2010 benefit gala at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes, France on May 20, going for elegance all the way in a Chanel maxi. For a similar gown to Rachel's at a much more affordable price, try Sky's Zuri in Black or C&C California's Stripe Tube Maxi in Black. Rachel accessorized her Chanel look with a pair of nude stilettos (try Gwyneth Shoes' Omyrah in Gold), an oversized cocktail ring, and a merlot clutch (I love the delicate detailing of Moyna Handbags' Abalone Flower Clutch in Red). What are your thoughts, readers - are you as taken with Rachel's look here as I am? The only thing I would change is maybe do something a little different with the hair. I feel like Rachel's hair always looks the same, no matter when we spot her! Exhibit A, B, and C. As I'm sure you've heard, Megan Fox has been dropped from Transformers 3 - ouch! - and certain bloggers are lobbying for Rachel to take her place. Do you think this would be a good idea? I'm not so sure that Rach's best genre is the action/thriller, I'm just dying to see her in a romantic comedy!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 14 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Paparazzi (and CoutureCandy) favorite Rachel Bilson was photographed running a few errands on a sunny day in LA on May 14, giving a coy smile as the paps flashed away. For her casual springtime ensemble, Rachel started with a pair of dark wash cuffed denim (try Joe's Jeans' Icon Muse Short in Corey) with a tucked in white button-up (similar to James Perse's Contrast Button Up in White) - very chic! From there, she chose a really cool Native American-inspired backpack slash bucket bag that she carried on her left shoulder, along with a cardigan (get the look with Qi New York's Mirage Boyfriend Cardigan in Natural) that she carried in her right hand and her sparkly engagement ring on her left. Rachel completed her look with a pair of basic suede ankle booties (Farylrobin's Valencia Heeled Ankle Boot in Grey are similar). Are you feelin' RB's look here, CoutureCandy readers? While it's a bit predictable, Rachel pretty much always looks great. While she is known for her sense of style, let's not forget that her true passion is acting. With that being said, it seems that Rachel is a huge fan of famous comedienne Lucille Ball, as she recently admitted to InStyle that she is obsessed with watching "I Love Lucy" on DVD! She says, "My mom [Janice] and I are obsessed with this show. We watch it together all the time." So cute! Love that they have mother/daughter bonding time :)
Rachel Bilson seen on May 08 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted running what seems to be some last-minute Mother's Day errands as she toted a metallic pink gift bag around LA on May 8. RB dressed quite conservatively for her day of shopping, as she donned a demure taupe frock (for two sassier options, check out Rachel Pally's Picnic Tube Dress in Putty or Isabel Lu's Chain Link Spaghetti Dress in Nude) along with a pair of ankle booties (like Farylrobin's Valencia Heeled Ankle Boot in Grey), a pair of classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and a small tote bag (similar to Antoinette Lee Designs' Dolce Handbag in Dove Grey). I'm not too sure how I feel about this look on Rachel, is it just me or do you find this look just a little too bland? Maybe if she added a bit of edge with a vibrant belt or a leather jacket. While it comes as no surprise that Rachel is incredibly close with her mother Janice - the two are photographed together very often - it seems that she was playing her Mother's Day plans this year quite by ear! She told OK! Magazine, "I don’t know [what gift I am getting her]. Something really great. My mom is the best. She’s an amazing person." So sweet!
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 28 2010 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted fulfilling her promotional duties as she made an appearance at the opening of Sunglass Hut's Flagship Store on Fifth Avenue in NYC on April 28, as Rachel was named Sunglass Hut's Style Director just days ago. For the fancy shindig, Rachel wore a royal blue RM for Roland Mouret frock (for dresses in a similar shade on CoutureCandy, check out Single's Skylar Dress with Chain in Royal or Mason's Strapless Chiffon Dress in Cobalt) under a structured black coat (I love the strong shoulders of Tt Collection's Dylan in Black) with a pair of opaque black tights and black platform heels. She completed her look with a black leather waist belt (similar to Rough Roses' Separated Straps Belt in Black) and an ivory Marni bag. Details about Rachel's role as Sunglass Hut's Style Director have been released, and it seems that RB will write a blog for SunglassHut.com as well as participate in online consumer chats as well as Q&A video podcasts with notable fashion figures. Says Bilson, "I love talking about fashion, so I can’t wait to talk to professionals who share the same passion. [Designer Karl Lagerfeld] an icon and he wears sunglasses at all times." Cool gig for Rachel, but I wonder when she's going to get back into acting?
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 01 2010 in Los Feliz, CA. Rachel Bilson made her way around Los Feliz, CA on April 1 with a friend, stopping by one of her favorite restaurants, Alcove Cafe, for lunch in the sun. How adorable is that little pup she is carrying along with her? Such a cute face :) For her outfit, Rachel paired distressed, vintage wash boyfriend jeans (try Denim of Virtue's Boyfriend Loose Fit Jean in Distressed) with a simple black tank top (the fit of T by Alexander Wang's Tank with Welt Pocket in Black is great) and grey cardigan (I really like the studded details on Bailey 44's Stud Poker Cardigan in Heather Grey). From there, RB slipped into a classic pair of black pumps, wore her favorite Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and toted along a woven bag with chain strap detailing (Danielle Nicole's Melanie Mini in Camel is similar). What are your thoughts on Rachel's look here, everyone? It's totally a classic Bilson look, I think. As for the recent reports that Rachel is pregnant with her first child, she says that these rumors are totally untrue and "hilarious." In her words: "It was like, 'Really? Where does this come from?' I went to the doctors because I have sinus problems. I walk out and it was raining, so I had a big raincoat on, so (the tabloids) thought I was pregnant. I had Q-tips stuck up my nose because I'm having sinus issues. If you want to think I'm pregnant, then fine!" Q-tips in her nose? That's something I've never heard of before!
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 05 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Cutie pie Rachel Bilson was spotted running some errands around Hollywood on March 5, and it seems that RB has taken to the clog trend that so many bloggers and fashionistas are obsessed with this spring (thanks Uncle Karl!). For her look, Rachel started with a sheer white t-shirt (try Monrow's burnout Ginko Oversized Tee in White) under a cropped blazer (check out Blaque Label's 3/4 Sleeve Jacket in Black), and then paired her favorite AG boyfriend jeans (similar to Joe's Jeans' Cuff Kicker Jean in Blanchet) with a pair of leather and wood clogs. She finished off her look with classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers, a skinny nude belt and a bright red handbag (take a look at Carla Mancini's Fringe Messenger Bag in Red). What do you think of Rachel's cloggy look here, readers - are you a fan of this trend, and if so, are clogs something you would try in your own outfit? While I'm sure young celebs like Rachel are constantly being invited to fashionable fetes, Rach recently attended the launch party for her friend Zac Posen's more affordable line, Z Spoke, which was held at Mr. Chow. Bilson was among the quite fashionable crowd, as other attendees included Amber Valletta, Emma Roberts, and hot newcomer Anna Kendrick. Tres chic and tres fun!
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 25 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was spotted running errands in LA on February 25, and although her outfit is a tad on the basic side, I am obsessed with the color combination she chose. Love love love her dusty rose scarf (check out A Graves' patterned Colt 45 Scarf in Pink) that she paired with an oversized caramel satchel (try Carla Mancini's Wavy Top Bag with Handles and Front Pocket in Orange), a long sleeve black t-shirt (try Splendid's 2x1 Long Sleeve Henley in Black) and skinny Current/Elliot jeans with zippers at the ankles (Dylan George's Lucy Jean in Mars also has this zippered detailing around the ankles). Final touch? Black ballet flats and her engagement ring. Love her smile in that picture on the left! It's only a matter of time in every female celebrity's life that they have to deal with pregnancy rumors, so of course Rachel has been plagued with this problem recently. I can understand why some might speculate this - she's been wearing flowy tops and lots of black lately, and her roots are majorly grown out too! However, this gossip is so false. Says RB's rep, "there is absolutely no truth to (the rumor about) Rachel being pregnant." That settles that!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 28 2010 in Hollywood, CA. The always adorable Rachel Bilson was spotted running errands in Hollywood on January 28, going for a casual look with with a pop of color thanks to her red boots. These boots are made for walking! It also seems like Rach is letting her lighter locks grow out a bit - what do you think, is it time for a touch up or do you like the natural, grow-out process? To get Rachel's easygoing look, start with a great pair of black skinny jeans (I love the slight distressing of Habitual Jeans' Ava Skinny Jean in Hurricane) and a grey t-shirt (try Rails' Gina Shirt in Grey), and pair with a cool cardigan (I'm so into the flirty accents of Gold Hawk's Double Cardigan in Grey Pewter) and shoulder bag. RB's is an enviable Chanel version, however the shoulder tote look is hugely popular right now, so a great bag is yours for the finding! To finish up your look, grab a fantastic pair of boots (the shade of Farylrobin's Felicia Flat Boot in Bordo is a darker red hue, if you aren't as into a brighter shade) and killer pair of shades. Voila! Insta-Bilson. For those of you who love reading her column every month in InStyle Magazine, you'll be relieved to hear that the fashionista has been confirmed to write her column throughout 2010. Rachel made the announcement at the recent InStyle and Diamond Information Center luncheon. Woohoo! Love reading this column, are any of you out there as excited by this news as I am?
Rachel Bilson seen on Dec 18 2009 in Culver City, CA. Cutie pie Rachel Bilson was spotted picking up some goods (perhaps for a festive holiday party she is throwing?) at Sorento Italian Market in Culver City on Friday, December 18 looking downright adorable as always. For her casual autumn look, Rachel started with a grey and blue plaid button down shirt (like Civil Smith's Parlor Shirt in Grey Plaid) that she then paired with skinny black denim (check out Serfontaine's Fox Peg Snakebite Jean in Black) and flat leather boots (very similar to Farylrobin's Felicia Flat Boot in Black). To complete her look, Rachel kept the jewelry to a minimum, opting instead for an orange leather shoulder bag (take a look at Trace's Ty Satchel in Pimento) and minimal make up. Is this an outfit you could see yourself wearing on a day of errands, readers? And if so, or if not really, do you like the way this looks on Ms. Bilson? It seems like this is going to be a very merry holiday season for Rachel and her boyfriend Hayden Christensen, as the couple was spotted carrying armful of cutely wrapped presents into her Los Angeles home earlier today, after spending a weekend with her family and delivering presents to her mother and sister, who was celebrating a birthday. I love this time of year, and so it seems does Rachel!
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 11 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was the picture of chic, black and white perfection yesterday, November 11, as she had lunch at Pizzeria Mozza with her stylist Nicole Chavez before heading to Maison Midi for a bit of shopping. For her day-in-LA look, she started with a pair of tailored black pants (get the look with Alice + Olivia's Arthur Pant in Black) and paired with a white button down blouse (like Splendid's Silky Shirt in White) and grey and black Ferragamo peeptoe stilettos. She kept her accessories to a minimum, only opting for a black shoulder bag for the day (take your pick of Linea Pelle Collection's Dylan Folding Tote in Black or Donald J Pliner's Reta Tote in Black). For those of you who caught Rach's guest judging gig on "Project Runway," Rachel is speaking out about how much she enjoyed the whole experience. She tells JustJared.com, "It was great. So much fun! It’s my favorite show so I was like a little kid. Heidi [Klum] was really, really nice!" Wow, she's really gushing! I can see why "Project Runway" would be Rachel's favorite show, seeing as though she is so into the whole world of fashion, and watching talented young designers must be super cool. Rachel's always had a pretty effortless style, and although she's been pretty open about having a stylist, she never seems like she's trying too hard. What do you think, readers?
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 05 2009 in Burbank, CA. The adorable (and much loved here at CoutureCandy) Rachel Bilson was spotted running a few errands in Burbank yesterday, November 5, including stopping at her local Staples and Michael's Arts & Crafts store. I wonder if she's working on a craft project? Rachel was definitely dressed for LA's semi-chilly fall weather, starting with a pair of shearling boots that appear to be vintage, paired with Hudson Jeans' Emily Super Skinny Jean in Trigger (get Rach's exact pair here on CC!) and a black and gold studded leather bag (check out Novella Royale's Clover Studded Bag in Grey). Up top, Rachel chose an oatmeal colored cardigan (try Splendid's 1x1 Long Cardi in Oatmeal) under a black jacket (I'm digging Habitual Jeans' Dietrich Jacket in Tux). She completed her look with a pair of Ray-Ban sunnies and her BlackBerry firmly in hand. What are your thought of RB's look, readers... is this something you would rock for a day of errands? Looks pretty cozy to me! For those of you who are Rachel fans, I bet you have already checked out her racy spread in an upcoming issue of Flaunt Magazine - take a peek at the pics here. Rachel is definitely bringing her inner fierceness to the surface - work it R!
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 21 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was spotted feeding the meter in LA during a day full of errands on October 21, and I have to say - I've never seen a parking meter with so many stickers on the pole before! For her casual ensemble, Rachel started with a cuffed pair of distressed cigarette jeans (for a slightly darker wash, try Genetic Denim's Davis Slouchy Cigarette Jean in Ol Vintage) that she paired with basic black ballet flats (for an added amount of graphic oomph, try Elaine Turner's Liz Flat in Graphic Haircalf) and a studded leather bag (I am officially obsessed with Novella Royale's Clover Studded Bag in Grey). On top, Rachel picked a brightly patterned button-up blouse (try 3J Workshop's muted Dixie Shirt in As Shown) under a cropped black jacket (for a leather option, take a look at Gold Hawk's Belted Leather Jacket in Moonless Night) and an oversized pair of black shades. Do you think Rachel's "casual chic in the city" look is working for her? Granted, it's a bit predictable but on the same token, she looks great and always seems effortless. Readers, let me know your thoughts! While it is a given that many girls are influenced by RB's style, who are her style inspirations, you ask? Well, Rach has revealed who she looks up to in the fashion world. She dishes, "I really look up to a lot of my peers and how they dress. I love to admire other people. Ashley Olsen I think is great, Diane Kruger, Sienna Miller - all those people obviously have good style, so it's nice to see that around you. Your peers surround you, and they all look good, so that's great." I definitely agree with her inspirations, all three women are very distinctive with their personal look. What about you, readers... which celebs influence your day-to-day style?
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 01 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. The always adorable Rachel Bilson was photographed supporting friend and designer Brian Reyes as he appeared at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills earlier today, October 1, back in her native LA after a trip to Milan for fashion week. For her simple yet chic look, Rachel paired a simple white tank (add a little extra flair with Interlud's Embroidered Chiffon Halter in Ivory) under a structured black blazer (try Signorelli's Logo Blazer in Black) and with a pair of greyish denim cut off shorts (check out Stitch's Totem Short in S48 Walker). Rachel kept her accessories to a minimum, only choosing an eye-catching red handbag (like Rocco e Dante Handbags' Rocco East West Bag in Red Patent) with a pair of lace-up camel booties and an unfussy 'do. What are your thoughts, readers - do you dig? It's really hard for me to ever dislike a RB outfit. Since she is so well known for her seemingly effortless style, Rachel was interviewed in this month's issue of Lucky, and had this to say when it comes to her personal style: "I’m constantly trying new things and experimenting, so I never really settle on one style. By the time I figure out how to define my look, I’m usually ready to move on to something else." Very interesting... however, I kind of feel like her style never changes that drastically!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 27 2009 in Milan, Italy. The always stylish Rachel Bilson was spotted sitting front row at the Salvatore Ferragamo show for Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 with her stylist Nicole Chavez on Sunday, September 27, rocking quite the interested get up. For her appearance, Rachel chose a purple-ish/navy silk frock with a sheer front panel from Ferragamo's Fall 2009 Collection, that she paired with cut-out lace gloves and black leather ankle boots. If you like Rachel's look, opt for a sexy, silky number like Single Dress' Violet Chain Belt Dress, or one of Gold Hawk's seductive pieces, like the CB Sheer Overlay Dress in Plum or the Beaded Abstract Top in Tempest Blue. Finish off your look with an oversized, statement cocktail ring and a classic black clutch (like Julie K Handbags' Sarah Clutch in Black Glaze). Always gracious to the press, Rachel spoke out about what she is most looking forward to this fall in terms of fashion. She says, "Something warm. I’m really looking forward to it getting cold again so you can start layering stuff and wearing tights and doing all that cozy cute stuff, ’cause that’s what I like. I like comfort!" In other Bilson news, it seems that RB is defending herself against claims that she and beau Hayden Christensen had a secret wedding. No way, her rep says! When attention sparked during NY Fashion Week due to the fact that Rach accessorized her ring finger with two gold bands, her rep says, "They were not married over the weekend. As you know she is known for her fashion forward style. She decided to accessorize the ultimate accessory." I'm sorry, but when you are a celebrity that is engaged and then wear two rings on your wedding finger, you are just asking for press speculation!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 01 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted indulging in a bit of retail therapy in West Hollywood on September 1, checking out the duds at chic boutique Opening Ceremony, stopping to get her beverage fix (with MULTIPLE beverages!) with a gal pal beforehand. For her casual yet trendy outfit, Rachel started with what looks like a pair of Stella McCartney ombre skinny jeans (if you're diggin' the stormy grey hue, try 7 for All Mankind's Roxanne Sunray Pocket Jean in Portland or Earnest Sewn's Harlan Jean in Orbit) and paired with a sheer black tee (very similar to Splendid's Feather Tencel Pocket Tee in Black), a pair of boy-inspired brogues, her trusty Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and a quilted cream bag (for a classic and versatile version, peep Julie K Handbags' Olivia Bag in Toffee). What are your thoughts on Ms. Bilson's look here - are you into her somber color scheme? In exciting Rachel news, it seems that the petite starlet is the latest to join the impressive roster of guest judges for hit show "Project Runway." It appears that RB will "appear on tonight’s episode of Runway during a beach-themed challenge which was shot at the Santa Monica Pier." In addition to developing her own line, Edie Rose, Rachel is also a regularly contributor to women's fashion tome In Style. Will any of you be checking out her appearance on "PR" tonight?
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 05 2009 in Los Feliz, CA. Former "OC" cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was spotted enjoying lunch at Joey's Cafe in Los Feliz with a few girlfriends back on August 5, rocking a casual/cute look on this sunny LA day. For her look, Rachel started with a pretty silk blouse (try Gold Hawk's Short Sleeve Ruffle Top in Soft Praline or Nanette Lepore's Enchantress Top in Smoke Grey, both of which are similar) tucked into a pair of Levi's denim shorts (check out Rich & Skinny's Lover Footloose Short in Vintage or Frankie B.'s Zig Z F Short in Mercurio) that she belted with a brown leather belt (like Pellemelle's Loophole Belt in Brown with Gold Tone Buckle). Rachel finished of her 'fit with a pair of her fave Wayfarers, flat sandals, and a green bag with a gold chain (try CC Skye's LuLu Day Bag in Grey). What are your thoughts on RB's look here, everyone? Personally, this totally strikes me as a very Jennifer Aniston-esque ensemble, don't you agree? If you're in the mood for a funny Rachel story, I have one for you! Last week, Rach was mobbed by the paparazzi after she appeared to be a bit tipsy stumbling out of Bardot in Hollywood, acting super annoyed that the photogs were acting so aggressive. That's when a few drag queens leaving a gay club nearby came to her rescue! They defended her from the paps, causing little miss Rachel to laugh. Hilarious! You can check out the pictures here. It's crazy how you can go from angry at the paparazzi to being quite amused at your knights in shining armor.
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 04 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was seen looking stylish as always as she left lunch at popular new hot Italian restaurant Cecconi's in West Hollywood on Tuesday, August 4, chatting with a few friends while waiting for the valet to arrive. For her daytime lunch look, Rachel paired a Brian Reyes charcoal grey pocket t-shirt (try Splendid's super soft Feather Tencel Pocket Tee in Black) tucked into a Brian Reyes skirt (for a playful collection of skirts, try Joe's Jeans' Ollie Skirt in White, Rebecca Taylor's Skinny Skirt in Chocolate or Karen Zambos' fanciful Lucille Skirt in Stripe Taffeta), which she accessorized with a brown leather belt (similar to Pellemelle's Loophole Belt in Brown with Gold Tone Buckle), killer patterned heels, and what looks to be a green Lanvin handbag (for a similar style, check out Julie K Handbags' Gigi Mini Bag in Pewter). Her one stand by? A pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. What do you think of RB's 'fit here - is she workin' it? Would any of you rock this for a casual summertime lunch? I think she is the picture of adorable class. In related Rachel news, I'm sure you remember when I reported here back in February that Rachel got engaged to boyfriend Hayden Christensen, where a friend of the couple said that "They’re so excited. They’re a great couple. Rachel seems thrilled beyond belief." It seems that Rachel has caused some confusion lately due to the fact that she has been appearing at events recently and not been wearing her rock. Have the happy couple called it off? No way, says Rachel's rep. "The engagement is on. She just doesn’t always wear the ring." Come on Rach - you're engaged! Be proud of it - show off the rock!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 23 2009 in Los Feliz, CA. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was seen enjoying lunch with a girlfriend at Los Feliz restaurant Little Dom's yesterday, July 23, opting for a casual look as she slipped into a comfy pair of nude flip flops for her sunny lunch outing. Rachel then paired a flirty LBD (try Shumaq's super similar Marrisa Dress in Black or Rachel Pally's Fortuna Dress in Black) with brown Wayfarers, an enviable and totally lust-worthy black and turquoise quilted Chanel bag, and a simple yet funky black and gold wrap bracelet (raid CoutureCandy's jewelry box and take your pick between CC Skye's Double Wrap Bracelet in Black, Accessories & Beyond's Button Leather Gold Plated Bracelet in Black, or Ettika's 24 Multi Faceted Beads Leather Bracelet, which also comes in eight other fun colors), and kept her amber brown tresses naturally wavy. What do you think readers, are you liking Rachel look here? Or is it a tad bit too plain Jane? While everyone is still buzzing about what a tragedy Mischa Barton's life has become, as she was checked into the hospital for a mystery medical condition and then forced to stay due to an involuntary physical hold, it seems that Rachel, Mischa's former co-star on "The OC," is not talking to Mischa in her time of crisis. While recently walking down Sunset Boulevard, Rach finally replied to the hounding paparazzi's questions about MB, and told them "I haven't spoken to her." Short, sweet, and to the point! Then again, I never really felt like Rachel and Mischa were that close off-set, as the two were rarely (if ever) spotted hanging out once the show wrapped. Still, it must be hard for Rachel to see someone who she spent so much time working with in such a state of distress!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 16 2009 in Hollywood, CA. The sometimes-elusive but always darling Rachel Bilson was spotted out and about after leaving a Hollywood studio yesterday, July 16, where she did a photo shoot for Signature Magazine. For her kickin'-around-LA look, Rachel started with a flirty, floral and ruffled frock (check out similar offerings, like Graham & Spencer's Cami Dress in Red, Tricia Fix's Dana Mini Dress in Orange Medallion, or Black Halo's Bustier Detail Pleated Mini Dress in Persimmon), and paired it with a studded, medium-wash denim jacket, lace-up black leather boots, and an oversized black hobo shoulder bag (check out Foley + Corrina's Savvy Tourist Bag in Black Patent). Later that evening, Rachel was lucky enough to play host for the 1 year anniversary event for the 3.1 Phillip Lim Los Angeles store, also hosted by Vogue. For that event, Rach chose a 3 piece 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010 look that consisted of a gold liquid lamé blazer, matching cuffed harem shorts, and a black sleeveless blouse. Check out her look here. What did you think of her metallic look - do you think she worked it out? I happen to love both her daytime and nighttime looks here, she makes easy and casual seem oh-so-effortless. Which Bilson style do you prefer though, casual day-wear or sophisticated nighttime looks?
Rachel Bilson seen on May 01 2009 in New York, NY. The usually sunny Rachel Bilson was seen looking mighty grumpy as she strolled through the Lower East Side in NYC earlier this morning, May 1, stopping by Au Bon Pain for a quick cup of soup. Rach also toted along a bright red umbrella with her for her morning outing, as rain was expected to be on the horizon. For Rachel's simple and casual look, she started with a pair of standard black leggings (like Zoa's Logo Long Leggings in Black) with a pair of black leather boots that almost look like a mixture between cowboy boots and riding boots. Next up, Rachel slipped into a long pocketed tank (Smitten's ) under a black blazer (try William Rast's Outerwear Black Jacket), and toted along the Jimmy Choo "Kiki" bag (check out Linea Pelle's Dylan Large Bowler Bag in Cognac). I know RB's look is super basic - but for running errands around town, do you think it works? While we all know Rachel from her role as Summer on "The O.C.," it is being reported that she is taking on a new role, that of a columnist. Rachel will be writing a column for InStyle Magazine," of which she says, "I can talk about fashion all day long, and I am an avid InStyle reader so the relationship seemed perfect!" In her column, Bilson will share fashion tips and advice, as well as answer questions from readers, and her first is set to debut in the May issue. RB added, "This column is the best homework assignment ever!" How cute is she??
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 13 2009 in Los Feliz, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted outside of her Los Feliz home on March 13, before being picked up and taken to The London Hotel in Beverly Hills to announce the Glow In The Dark program's second year, presented by Jergens and The Skin Cancer Foundation. In an intricately detailed navy and white 3.1 Phillip Lim dress (for options in a similar shade and without the hefty price tag, check out Woo's Berta Dress in Navy or Ella Moss' Luella Short Sleeve Ruffle Dress in Dream) under a blue velvet blazer (try Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's cropped version, the Lydia Velvet Jacket in Blue), Bilson accessorized with gold heels and a grey tote (take your pick of Julie K Handbags' Lizzie Mini Tote in Slate or Rough Roses' Roxy Tote in Grey), finishing things off with a pair of standard Wayfarers. What are your thoughts on RB's look - polished and pretty, or predictable? In addition to the outfit that she chose to attend the Glow In The Dark event, Rachel also donned the sparkling engagement ring that she received from fiance Hayden Christensen. Note how she held her left hand over her bag to show off the ring. Nice move, Rach! Way to show off the ring to the photographers!
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 17 2009 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted all over Manhattan on February 17, as the stylish sweetie was in town for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, looking chic as usual. For her nighttime ensemble, Rachel chose an oversized black blazer (like Signorelli's Logo Blazer in Black) over a dusty rose colored dress (check out similar options from Tricia Fix, like the Mina Mini Dress in Fuchsia Flower, or from 3J Workshop, like the Fawcett Shirt Dress in Rosewater)and violet scarf. She then slipped into a pair of black tights with black Louboutins and a long black clutch (try Julie K Handbags' Sasha Clutch in Black Glaze), keeping her hair pulled back for an easy and fuss-free look. What are your thoughts on Rachel's Fashion Week getup - do you approve? In other exciting Bilson news, it seems that she and longtime beau Hayden Christensen have finally gotten engaged. A source says that Rachel confirmed her engagement on a flight from LAX to JFK, saying, "A man sitting in front of her on the plane saw a ring on her finger and asked if she was married. She replied, 'I’m not married yet, just engaged. I know I look like I’m 15, but I’m actually 27.'" Additionally, a friend of the happy couple is saying that they've been engaged since December. "They’re so excited. They’re a great couple. Rachel seems thrilled beyond belief," the source said. Congrats to the happy couple!
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 04 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was spotted doing some shopping at Confederacy boutique in LA on February 4, flashing a coy smile for the paparazzi as she headed to her car. To get Rachel's look, start with a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and cozy up in a warm sweater (check out Autumn Cashmere's Tweed Popcorn Cable Shawl Sweater in Jet Smoke or Prairie New York's Wool Cardigan in Black). Next, Rachel chose a brightly patterned frock (Tricia Fix's Eva Mini Dress in Orange Sun, Woo's Michelle Mini Dress in Tan, and Prairie New York's Shift Dress in Navy Lynx are all cute, similar patterned options) with red and black flats, which her feet seem to be slipping out of. The finishing touch? A great, basic black caryall (like Carla Mancini's Whipstitch Double Handle Bag with Clasp in Black). What do you think of Bilson's look here, do you approve? While RB has seemingly come back into public eye all of a sudden, she has definitely been keeping her stylish fashion choices just as fresh as ever. She was recently spotted braving a cold, rainy LA day with her little sister, Hattie, as the two girls went toy shopping. It's super cute that Rach is spending quality time with her little sis, quite refreshing in the weird land of Hollywood, actually!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 31 2009 in Westwood, CA. Rachel Bilson's has been keeping out of the public eye lately, but was snapped by the paparazzi heading into the Hotel Palomar in Westwood on January 31, looking classy and chic as always. For her 'fit, RB started with a navy blazer (like William Rast's Blazer in Navy) over a gauzy white v-neck t-shirt (check out Qi's V Underslip in Antique White). From there, she added on a pair of skinnies (take a gander at 7 for All Mankind's Edie Staple Jean in Peru) with nude suede heels, gold wrap bangles (like CC Skye's Triple Cobra Stretch Bangles in Gold), a pair of black round sunnies and a black leather tote (similar to Carla Mancini's Top Zip Hobo with Braided Handle in Black). What do you think of Rach's look here - I think she looks absolutely stunning and classic. Outfits like this are perfect to run around in in LA - not overly fussy or like you're trying too hard. Belissimo! In other Rachel news, it seems that the New York Daily News are reporting that Rachel may be hosting her own cooking show - from the kitchen of the house she just moved into in Ontario, Canada with her beau Hayden Christensen! Wow - talk about the unexpected... I didn't even know Rachel could cook. This is quite the departure from the role that she is best known for, bubbly brunette Summer on "The O.C." I wonder what secret recipes Rachel in her cookbook - and I wonder if there is any validity whatsoever to this rumor. I guess only time will tell?
Rachel Bilson seen on Dec 23 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Well well well, we haven't seen much of Rachel Bilson here on CoutureCandy lately, so it was much to my pleasure that RB was spotted grabbing lunch at Dusty's American Bistro in LA with little sister Hattie and a friend on December 23. I know that she is one of the readers' faves, but I hate to say it- I'm not sure how much I'm feeling this 'fit of hers. Rachel started with a Mandarin-inspired jacket over a burnout tee (skip the jacket and pick Love Couture's Oriental Flowers Burnout Banded Waist Tee in White), and paired medium-wash denim (like Tag Jeans' Skinny 5 Pocket Jean in Medium Stone) and slouchy, vintage-looking brown boots. Pulling her brunette locks into a messy ponytail, Rachel finished off her outfit with a pair of aviator shades and an oversized leather caryall (take a look at Carla Mancini's The Shopper Bag in Black). Pretty basic, but I've seen a lot worse! When recently asked what her holiday plans consisted of this year, Rachel gave an expected (but still adorable and honest) response. She said, "The things I look forward to about the holidays are staying at home and eating all my mom’s food and cookies." Sounds delicious! I am still waiting for the readers to weigh-in on what they did for the holidays this year... don't be shy!
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 26 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted in Los Angeles yesterday, October 26, allegedly on her way to a Halloween party dress as a "hippie." Umm, to me it looks like Rachel Bilson on a normal day with a few peace signs, flowers, and hearts drawn on her body! Seriously, I would have never guessed she was in costume. To steal Rachel's look (either as everyday wear or a costume idea), start with a slouchy white tee (like Laura Dahl's York Top in Winter White) and tuck into a pair of medium wash wide leg jeans (check out Pierce Jeans' Santa Barbara Theresa Wide Leg Jean in Pacific). Add on a floral headband, a heart charm necklace (Robyn Rhodes' Michelle Necklace is similar), a shiny bag with a chain (take a look at Julie K Handbags' Gigi Mini Bag in Azure), and a pair of oversized sunnies (Nour's Baba Sunglasses in Oro Bianco will do nicely)... and you're all set! In other Bilson news, Rach is speaking out about marriage (and baby!) plans in the future. She says, "I don't need to get married right now. I am more ready for a baby than marriage. Not really tomorrow, but definitely in the next couple of years which is the pretty near future. You have to have the guy, you know?" You hear that, Hayden?
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 09 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Okay, I'll admit it. I totally busted out my "O.C." Season 1 DVDs this week and totally fell in love with Rachel Bilson and Summer Roberts all over again. I forgot how adorable she was on that show! She was spotted with boyfriend Hayden Christensen on the set of a Lacoste commercial in Los Angeles yesterday, October 9, along with her dog, Thurman Murmen. Getting all cozy during filming breaks, Rach and Hayden snuck a few kisses while she sat on his lap, with Thurman close by to protect his mommy. For her outfit, Rachel (or her stylist) put together a look consisting of a patterned dress (check out similar options, like Shumaq's Monica Dress in Black and White and Guy Baxter's Morgan Dress in White/Black), a waist belt (I'm loving Linea Pelle's Double Buckle Waist Belt with Pyramid Studs in Black), and knee-high flat leather boots. The finishing touch? Her Ray-Ban Wayfarers, of course! In the new Fashion Issue of Page Six Magazine, Rachel is speaking out about her new line, Edie Rose, and her relationship with Hayden. Of her line, she says, "[Even though I can't sew,] I came with some pictures, a couple pieces of my own clothes and some ideas in my head. It’s simple with one pop of color, which is like me." She then went on to discuss her relationship, and although it's never been officially confirmed by either of the two actors, Bilson says, "I’m happy and that’s all that matters. I have someone really great. Someone who can make me laugh— that’s always what comes first. It’s the best to be able to really, like, truly laugh with someone like they’re your best friend, you know?" Hmm, thoughts?
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 24 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted doing some shopping at Barney's New York in Beverly Hills while texting away on her BlackBerry on September 24, all the while wearing her green Chanel sunnies indoors. For Rachel's basic blouse-and-jeans look, check out For Love and Liberty's similar Shirred Front Top in Khaki and pair with a great skinny jean, like Denim of Virtue's Slim Peeptoe Jean in Night Club. Rach accessorized with a nude pair of leather platforms, along with an oversized leather hobo bag with ruffle detail (Carla Mancini's East West Shopper Bag in Rust is a similar shape and gives a great message). It seems like Rachel can make even the most basic outfit girly and fun. Props! In Bilson career news, it seems that she has joined the cast of a film titled Waiting for Forever, penned by Steve Adams and directed by James Keach. The Hollywood Reporter summarized the film as centering on "a young man who's happy without a job and decides to spend the rest of his life with his love- a 25-year-old TV actress living in Hollywood." Hmm- a jobless person mooching of someone who's a success in Hollywood? Sounds pretty familiar to most other real-life stories in Hollywood!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 05 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. Rachel Bilson made an appearance at The Bank Club in the Bellagio Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV on September 5, as she hosted "The Ultimate Bachelorette Party," looking pretty cute as she did so. For the evening, Rachel chose a brightly patterned mini-dress, similar to options from Tricia Fix (like the Aubrey Mini Dress in Orange Medallion), LaROK (like the Tiva Dress in Multi), and Miguelina (like the Tyra Dress in Multi), with black heels and a simple black clutch (similar to Julie K Handbags' Sasha Clutch in Black Glaze). A petite pleasure! In other Rachel news, it seems that I have uncovered the way to her heart... co-star in a project with her! She is opening up to the press saying that she has a hard time not developing feelings for her male romantic co-stars, such as former flame Adam Brody and current beau Hayden Christensen. She says, "They say don't date your co-star, but that's who you're around. If you're in an office, and you see someone everyday and you click well, you'll start dating. It's the same thing." Interesting analogy! Bilson continues, "I have someone really great. Someone who can make me laugh- that's always what comes first. It's the best to be able to really, like, truly laugh with someone like they're your best friend, you know?" Sounds pretty much like she is talking about Hayden... who knew that they had such a BFF-esque rapport?
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 12 2008 in Los Feliz, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted leaving a light lunch at bakery/cafe Alcove Cafe in Los Feliz on August 12, wearing one of her favorite little dresses, seeing as though she was photographed in this LBD two years ago (check out a blog I wrote back in 2006 featuring the frock here). For a similar little number, check out Ecoganik's V Neck Babydoll Dress in Black or Autumn Cashmere's luxurious Racer Back Dress in Black. Additionally, Rachel wore a pair of eye-catching gold sandals (she seems to be stepping it up in the footwear department lately, huh?) and an oversized leather satchel (like Rough Roses' Jewel Hobo in Tan). Cute! Rach was also spotted at Home Depot recently, gettin' her home improvement on, with her pooch Thurman Murmen in her arms. Wonder what sprucin' up Rachel is doing in these lazy summer months?
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 03 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson also rocked the blue carpet of the 2008 Teen Choice Awards at the Gibson Ampitheatre last night, August 3, in Los Angeles, looking simply sublime. In a sky blue, off-the-shoulder frock (check out Karina Grimaldi's Ruffle One Shoulder Silk Mini Dress in Royal Blue for a more casual version) with tan heels and a black clutch, Rach kept her jewelry simply, opting for only a pair of oversized gold earrings (like Jessica Elliot's Blossom Earrings in Vermeil). Gorgeous! Rachel paired a brown, smoky eye with fresh pink lips and kept her hair wavy, kind of doing a brunette version of the sunkissed California girl. Compared to last year's Teen Choice Awards carpet (in which she wore a very structural black dress, click here), her look was very soft this year. Which look to you prefer, Bilson's 2007 outfit or her 2008 outfit?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 30 2008 in Culver City, CA. Rachel Bilson seems to be photographed everywhere lately, and Wednesday was no exception, as the Jumper cutie was spied visiting a production office in Culver City. Rach wore a fashion-forward, edgy pair of Martin Margiela ankle boots for her outing, which I know many readers will hate, but I think are awesome and that Rachel totally pulls them off. Because boots that are this eye-catching need to be the focal point of an outfit, Rachel was smart to tone down the rest of her look. Pairing a simple white button down (like 3J Workshop's embroidered Float Like A Butterfly Shirt in White) with rolled up distressed denim (check out 7 for All Mankind's Gwenevere Jean in Butter) and Wayfarers, she let her boots take the spotlight. What do you think- do you love them or hate them? Later in the day, after her meetings in Culver City, Rachel was spotted shopping at Milk on 3rd Street with another equally stylish friend. All in a days work for one of the most photographed fashionistas du jour!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 23 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted picking up some treats for her pooch, Thurman Murman, at Los Angeles doggy store Tailwaggers on July 23. Sporting a cheerful summertime print dress (like Plenty by Tracy Reese's Ruffled Shift Dress in Gumdrop Stripes) with a pair of Wayfarers and strappy flats (check out Matiko Footwear's Oda Flat in Gold), Rachel looked breezy and lovely as always. I have to say, Rachel has been seen out and about much more than usual these days, and since supposedly her clothing line, Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans, is her "main focus" right now, I have to wonder how much of a "main focus" it can be if she is always out shopping with her sister and picking up treats for her doggy! I know that Rachel used to be one of Hollywood's hottest starlets back when she was on "The OC," but what do you think- is her fame dwindling down, or is she just as hot as ever?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 19 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Rachel Bilson was caught by the paparazzi in Beverly Hills on Saturday, July 19, and doesn't seem to be too pleased about it. She goes from looking like she's just going for a casual stroll in the picture on the right to looking like she's going to bust out a smackdown on the photog on the picture on the left. Can't she just get some privacy? Oh, yes... that's right... you're a celebrity in the public eye. Looks like the answer to that question is a big, fat NO! Like I always say, the day they stop taking your picture is the day you need to worry, Rach. As far as her outfit, she started with a vibrant blue zip-up coat, and paired it with a black tank (I love the embellished details of Wifebeader's Ribbed Tank in Black) and flared denim (extremely similar to 7 for All Mankind's Bootcut Jean in Vintage Honolulu). Next up was a pair of black Wayfarers and a leather bag, similar to Carla Mancini's Top Zipper Dome Bag in Chestnut. In related Rach news, it seems that she is giving her new clothing line everything she's got. She tells Women's Wear Daily, "This line is my main focus right now. I can’t draw at all, so I won’t be doing any sketches, but I am learning to sew. I think it’s important to know more about the whole process of making clothes." Sounds like she is actually invested in the line and has a strong interest in the creative process, unlike other celebs who just throw their name on a bunch of tacky crap and call it a clothing line... cough Heidi Montag cough...
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 17 2008 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted doing some outdoor shopping on the streets of NYC back on June 17, looking as cute and stylish as ever. For her utterly simplistic yet majorly drool-worthy outfit, Rach started with a grey cotton dress (check out Qi's Tea Time Dress in Granite) and belted it with a white chain belt (similar to Jack Rabbit Collection's Chain Belt in White). She kept her jewelry simple, opting only for a gold necklace and her trust green Hermes bangle (for a more affordable option, feast your eyes on Rachel Leigh's Audrey Python Bangle in Green), and slipped into a pair of black gladiator sandals. The finishing touch? Large shades and a fedora. Pure Bilson bliss. Since Rachel's film Jumper was recently released on DVD, Rach is speaking out about all that she learned while making the film. She says, "Shooting was so fantastic, the whole experience. We all became close friends, but I also respect all of them as actors so I got to learn things from them. I was very fortunate." Like I always say, you can never learn too much!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 01 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted hitting up Albertson's for a grocery run back on June 1 in Los Angeles, and was most likely the brightest shopper in the entire store. If you're loving the vibe of Rach's frock, I recommend taking a peek at similar offerings from LaROK (like the Tea Cup Dress in Brick), Tricia Fix (like the Miranda Long Dress in Orange Medallion), and Lotta Stensson (like the Flowy Dress with Embroidery in Poppy). For her look, Rachel also decided to accessorize with a classic pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers, in addition to a pair of casual black sandals (check out Matiko Footwear's Sara Sandal in Black). While critics weren't too fond of Rachel's turn in the big screen blockbuster Jumper, it seems that now Rachel is letting her fans in on a little behind-the-scenes info, on the filming of the love scene. Bilson says, "It's always awkward and hard to film love scenes, it's so unnatural, and it's mechanical. Actually Doug [Liman, director] made it very free and we went with it - and a shot of alcohol always helps ease the nerves." All I have to say is, do what you gotta do, girl!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 27 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. From one former-"OC" cutie to another, Rachel Bilson was spotted running errands at CVS with her momma earlier today, May 27, and was wearing a pair of wide-leg jeans so baggy, they might be Hayden Christensen's! For a similar pair, check out 7 for All Mankind's Match Jean in St. Martin. Next up, Rachel paired a delicate violet top (check out Gold Hawk's 2 X Layer Short Sleeve Top in Blush) with a basic brown belt (like Pellemelle's Double Ring Belt in Chestnut) looped into her jeans. Accessory wise, Bilson donned a pair of Wayfarers and a bright teal bag (Julie K Handbags' Eliza Flat Tote in Jade Python is similar). Sporting a fresh manicure (loving the ruby red!), Rach enjoyed spending some time with her beloved mother. What do you think, though- these jeans to me are teeter-tottering on the verge of TOO big and baggy, do you think that they look good on R.Bil, or should she gone down a size in wide-legginess?
Rachel Bilson seen on May 17 2008 in Los Angeles. Former "OC" cutie Rachel Bilson was spotted on a little shopping adventure in LA on May 17, along with her little sister Hattie and other friends. It seems that Rach is taking a page from Brit-Brit Spears' book of "HUH?" by carrying around that plastic baby doll (like when Britney was constantly sucking on her passifier). Oh baby! Bilson did look extremely cute however, save for the baby, in her abstract multicolored tank (I love the exotic look of Signorelli's Leopard Tank with Gold Chain in Pumpkin) tucked into her high-waisted black skirt (like Parameter's High Waist Mini Skirt in Black). Accessory wise, Rachel paired a hoop necklace (check out Amy DiGregorio's awesome Foster Necklace in Gold) with Wayfarer-esque shades, her lime green Hermes bangle and the pair of bright yellow t-strap sandals (I love the braided look of Matiko Footwear's Sara Sandal in Yellow) that she's been seen wearing more than once lately. I wonder if Rachel is carrying the doll around to prepare for motherhood, as "boyfriend" Hayden Christensen has often said how he can't wait to settle down and start a family. She's probably just carrying the doll because she's holding it for her little sis, but you never know. Why do you think Rach brought the doll along for her day of shopping?
Rachel Bilson seen on May 10 2008 in Glendale, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted shopping at the Glendale Galleria mall yesterday, May 10, with a friend, checking out gifts at Williams-Sonoma (most likely picking up a last minute gift for mom for Mother's Day). Rachel stepped out in her classic, casual style, consisting of a long-sleeve grey tee (Signorelli's Omni Peace Long Sleeve Tee in Grey is similar and proceeds go to a very good cause) with a white scarf (like Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's Imelda Shawl in Ivory) and skinny jeans (check out Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Jean in Midnight). Accessory wise, Rachel chose her good old trusty black Wayfarers (which do not seem to be losing their coolness factor with Hollywood "it girls" anytime soon), in addition to a practical brown leather belt (Pellemelle's Double Ring Belt in Chestnut is similar) for her jeans. Finally, Bilson punched up her look with a bright yellow Dior bag and matching t-strap sandals. While it's no secret that Rachel is quite the animal lover, she has been spending quite a noteworthy amount of time lately pampering her pooches. After her day of shopping for mom, she headed to a pet store to grab some treats for her dog Thurmen Murmen, and just days before, took Thurmen to K9 Loft Doggie Daycare for a day of pampering. Oh to be a celebrity's dog... must be nice!
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 17 2008 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted heading to the set of her new movie, New York, I Love You, on April 17 in NYC, and (like Leighton Meester on the set of "Gossip Girl" the other day), kept it casual and comfortable in a pair of olive green UGGs. The rest of Bilson's outfit consisted of an orange coat (check out Kushcush's Velvet Ruffle Front Wrap Trench Coat in Orange for a similar look, or if orange is too daring a color for you, this Kuschush coat also comes in classic shades of cream and black) over a casual black dress (like Rails' Vero Pocket Dress in Black), accessorized with a long scarf (similar to Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's Imelda Shawl in Ivory) and gold hoop earrings (which Rach was seen putting in). Rachel is working on this project with still unconfirmed beau Hayden Christensen (their second film together now), although the jury is still out on whether or not this couple is for real and just keeping their romance on the downlow, or if they were originally paired up for PR purposes and now are keeping the shenanigan going to drum up more press for this upcoming film. Thoughts? I tend to flip flop on whether or not I think they are truly together- I mean, they are rarely ever spotted out together on dates or in public at all... what do you think?
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 07 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was seen going on a Jamba Juice run on March 7 in Los Angeles, going for a cute and casual look while she picked up her smoothies. Sporting a Marilyn Monroe graphic tee (I never knew Rach was a Monroe fan... so cool) under a cream and neon green cardigan (Sydney Los Angeles' 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan in Vanilla Cream is a more basic, fitted version of Rachel's cardigan), Rachel also chose a pair of bootcut jeans (like 7 for All Mankind's Bootcut Jean in Vintage Honolulu) and Jack Purcells. Accessory wise, Rachel belted her denim with a brown leather belt (similar to Pellemelle's ), slung a brown messenger-style purse over her shoulder (Julie K Handbags' Lulu Fur Mini Messenger Bag with Chain in Leopard is an exotic take on a basic) and shielded the sun with her red Wayfarers. It seems that Rachel is taking precautions against a problem that is facing many young starlets these days... being photographed sans underwear! Recently, Rachel encountered a few paparazzi who were getting a little too up close and personal for her taste, and who seemed to be trying to get a "crotch shot" (her words). She says, "I’ve had these guys trying to get these shots, crotch shots, I guess, and you think, ‘You’ve got to be kidding. This is the ultimate down and dirty ambush. But it’s something you can pretty easily protect yourself from. I’ve seen what the paparazzi can do to someone if she’s careless about how she gets out of a car and if she forgot her underwear. Fortunately, I’m not one to forget about underwear. Ever.” Finally, a young woman in Hollywood with enough common sense to slip on some panties before heading out the door (and out of a car!).
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 06 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted making a stop at the bank in LA back at the beginning of March, on the 6th, looking every bit as adorable as we're used to seeing her. Starting her outfit off with a pair of red Wayfarers (for another option, in case you are looking for a fresh change from the Wayfies (as I am), check out JeeVice Optic's supercool Evil Sunglasses in Red, which come with peace signs along the side), Rachel slipped into a pair of basic black skinnies (like Deener's High Waist Cigarette Jean in Tar). Next up was a comfy cashmere sweater (I love the details on Autumn Cashmere's Puff Sleeve Babydoll Top in Sawdust), perfectly offset by the finishing accessory touches: gold sandals and a black shawl (similar to Elizabeth Gillet Ltd's Imelda Shawl in Black). As I've been saying lately, it seems like every young fashionista out there (not to mention Heidi Montag!) is getting her own fashion line, and Rachel is no exception. Rach's label will launch through DKNY, and will be titled "Edie Rose." Named after her grandmother and close family friend, Rachel says, "I want people to see these clothes for what they are, not just another line designed by another celebrity. I want the line to be taken seriously… I also want to show people that you don't have to pay a million dollars for clothes that look good. For me, I love vintage clothes and I shop vintage all the time. It's fun to play and put things together. You don't have to spend a lot to get a great look." What do you think- will her line be met with success?
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 05 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. From one Rachel to another: Rachel Bilson was spotted in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 5. Bilson sported a flawless, cutting edge look while her dog Thurman Murmen came along for the ride. Rachel started things off with a pair of Christian Louboutin's latest to-die-for shoe, the Ariella studded boot, and a pair of black skinny denim (check out Deener's High Waist Cigarette Jean in Tar). On top, Bilson wore a vintage style brown leather bomber jacket over a black tank top (similar to Autumn Cashmere's Racker Back Tank in Black). R.Bil accessorized with a vintage pair of brown polarized Ray Ban wayfarers and a gold pendant chain necklace (look at Jessica Elliot's 3 Faces Track Medal in Vermeil). Rachel was seen walking into a friend's house on this recent Wednesday in Los Angeles, and one might guess she may be celebrating after the success of her latest film "Jumper." The film debuted at #1 in the US , and has since stayed in the top 3 films for its third consecutive weekend. Overseas, it landed its third straight weekend at #1 with 12.8 million. Being Rachel's first leading role since "The O.C.," she has now proved that she was more than an actress on a hit TV show. Bilson has yet to sign onto any new movies, but we're guessing with the success of "Jumper" she is about to be a sought after actress. Take that, Mischa!
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 17 2008 in Burbank, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted carrying a booze bag out of a Burbank liquor store on February 17, leaving many to believe that Rach is on her way to having a party for one! Clad in super cute and casual everyday wear, Rachel started her outfit with a faded pair of skinny jeans (just like Serfontaine's Fox Straight Leg Jean in Vintage- all you need is a pair of scissors to tear a rip like Rachel's yourself). Next up is a basic, loose fitting white tee (similar to Laura Dahl's York Top in Winter White) and a funky, patterned scarf (check out Raw 7's Street Scarf in Ivory). To finish off her look, Bilson accessorized with a classic pair of Wayfarers and a navy blue pair of Converse. Cutie! While it's old news now that Rachel's film Jumper was a huge success at the box office over the weekend, it's pretty new and interesting news that Rachel found out she was cast as the female lead via text message! Rachel said in a recent interview that she "was at my cousin’s wedding in Tennessee and I got a text message. I guess it’s the new way to cast someone in a movie — the director just text messages you. It’s not bad, I wouldn’t mind if it happened more often. Doug sent me a text message and asked me what I was doing. I went, ‘Literally, right now? I’m at my cousin’s wedding.’ And he messaged, ‘Well, what are you doing this autumn? Are you gonna come be in my movie?’ I was like, ‘I’m going to have to talk to some people about that. Hopefully it will work out.’ And it did." Well there's a story to tell your kids!
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 11 2008 in New York City, NY. Rachel Bilson was snapped signing autographs while doing her talk show rounds in New York on February 11, looking chic and happy in her put-together outfit. Wearing a classic skirt (reminiscent of Laura Dahl's Darcy Skirt) with a v-strap top (check out Ella Moss' similar Catalina V Strap Top in Coconut), a white coat (like Walter's Zigzag Jacquard Coat in White) and black tights, Rach accessorized with black patent leather gloves (LOVE THEM) and a quilted midnight blue Chanel bag. Tres perfect. Rach has been workin' it promoting for her upcoming blockbuster Jumper, in which she is opposite "boyfriend" Hayden Christensen, and is not keeping quiet about how she feels about kissing Mr. Christensen. Rachel says, "I'm sure all the ladies will be happy to know Hayden is a 10 when it comes to kissing." Hayden replied with, "Rachel is top notch too, we kiss well." Don't oversell it, honey!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 20 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was seen Sunday, January 20 getting her hair did at Hollywood's Chroma Studio, and is it just me or does her hair look a little redder than usual? Bilson was looking lovely as always with her classic casual and chic look. Starting off at the bottom, Bilson began her look with a pair of black leather biker knee high boots (check out Matiko Footwear's Maria Boot in Black) paired with a pair of black skinny denim (just like Deener's Highwaist Cigarette Jean in Tar ). On top, Bilson sported a vintage style black leather jacket over a black and white stripped tee (similar to Signorelli's Butterfly Tee in Pearl). Bilson completed her look with a handful of accessories. Making sure to protect her eyes in the California sun, Bilson sported a pair of aviator sunglasses (check out JeeVice Optics' Crybaby II in Silver), along with an "H" charm necklace, and designer, and friend, Zac Posen's Tassled Bag (similar to E.D.E.'s Studio's Large Saddle Bag in Brown). Rach has been receiving a lot of press lately for her new movie Jumper, hitting the big screen nationwide on Valentine's Day. Bilson stars alongside rumored boyfriend Hayden Christensen. No word whether or not they are just friends, or something more. The movie is said to be on everyone's list for the perfect date movie on Valentine's Day; a little action for him, a little romance for her. Maybe Hayden and Rachel will just end up being spotted catching the flick together that very night... now THAT would spark some good gossip!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 15 2008 in West Hollywood, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted Tuesday, January 15 picking up a cup of coffee at West Hollywood's Vons grocery store. In a classic afternoon look, Bilson stayed chic and casual in a black ensemble with hints of brown, yellow and white. Bilson started her look with a pair of brown vintage style laced up heels (check out Matiko Footwear's Ruth in Brown Leather) and skinny black denim jeans (check out Deener's Highwaist Cigarette Jean in Tar). On top, Bilson added contrast to her look with a white cotton blouse (look at Cake Couture's Crescent Moon Blouse in White) underneath a black soft leather jacket. Bilson accessorized her look with a yellow knit scarf, pair of black aviator style sunglasses (check out JeeVice Optics' The Crybaby II in Brushed Silver) and a brown leather vintage style handbag (look at E.D.E. Studio's Sedona Bag in Brown). Bilson recently shared her latest secrets and stories in a recent issue of Playboy. Bilson opened up about her former boyfriend and "O.C." costar Adam Brody. When asked her feelings on dating a costar, Bilson said, "You can't help whom you fall for. I believed I would never date an actor or anyone else in the business. But you find you relate to people in the business because you're around them all the time, dealing with the same schedules, traveling all over the place. I haven't seen Adam in a while. We were together every day for four years. It's hard. That person is your best friend, but when the relationship ends, you can't be friends with him. It wouldn't be the healthiest situation." What do you think? Should actors and actresses date their costars? Or, should they go George Clooney style and stick to us normal folks?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 12 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson made an appearance at the Heaven Celebrates 10 Years Benefit on January 12, looking flawless and definitely turning the glamour factor up a notch. Wearing a long silk evening gown (Parameter's Silk Ruffle Dress in Champagne is a shorter, more casual version, while Sofira's Cleopatra Dress in Black is a black version that resembles Bilson's) with diamond drop earrings and tousled, wavy hair, Rachel did her best "seductive stare" for the photographers. While Bilson is STILL playing coy about whether she is dating Jumper co-star Hayden Christensen, she did however say that she is happy with the state of her love life in a recent interview for GQ Magazine. Regarding the "H" cuff that she is often seen wearing, the interviewer asked her if it had anything to do with the name Hayden. Bilson responded, "My little sister's name is Hattie, and my favourite food is hash browns." I'm just taking a stab in the dark here, but it is probably just an Hermes cuff that she is wearing. Wouldn't you agree?
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 28 2007 in Beverly Hills, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted making a Barney's run in Beverly Hills on November 25 in an outfit that perfectly complimented this petite beauty. Wearing an adorable camel colored cropped coat with straight leg white denim (like James Jeans' 5 Pocket Straight Leg Jean in Aspen White), black shades (check out Nour's Noushi Sunglasses in Crystal Mystery), gold bangles and a black shoulder bag (similar to Linea Pelle's Dylan Large Shoulder Bag in Black), Rachel is quick becoming the queen of polished, casual style. While it is no secret that Rachel and rumored beau Hayden Christensen are going to be turning up the heat on their "romance" with the upcoming release of their feature film "Jumper", I still have to wonder, is this a romance of convenience, or is their love for real? Gossip is spreading fast and furiously lately that Rachel and Hayden's courtship is merely for show, due to the fact that they have a movie coming out together and that Hayden, ahem, enjoys more of a male persuasion. At the premiere of Hayden's new thriller "Awake" in New York earlier this month, Rachel arrived by herself and did everything in her power to avoid being photographed with Mr. Christensen. Hayden chose to cozy up to co-star Jessica Alba for most of the photo-ops, leaving Rachel to pose solo. Wow, this faux-mance is sure being masterfully orchestrated! I think it would be great if Rachel and Hayden went on a double date with another "are they real or fake?" couple, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal! And what better place for this double date to occur than, say, The Ivy or Mr. Chow, where they are sure to have a completely private dinner absolutely free from any pesky paparazzi. Right... that would be rich!
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 20 2007 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted out and about shopping on November 20, looking like she's ready for the pending chilly winter weather with her classic winter-in-California wardrobe. Wearing a short sleeve white tee (check out Laura Dahl's Fievel Tee in White) with a long navy coat, cream knit scarf, 7 for All Mankind jeans (like their A Pocket Jean in Nakita) and leather boots, Rachel looks all bundled up for a busy afternoon of errands. And Rachel is getting busier and busier by the day lately, as she is gearing up for the release of her new film Jumper with Hayden Christensen. Rachel, along with the rest of the film's cast (including Hayden and Samuel L. Jackson) will appeared at the Great Sphinx in front of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas on December 7 for a world premiere screening of the flicks official trailer, taking place at midnight. Sheesh, talk about going through great length for a movie trailer! I'm wondering if once the film is released and all of the buzz surrounding it simmers down if Rachel and Hayden will still be a "couple". I'm leaning towards NOT. What do you think?
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 14 2007 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson hosted the Cartier Celebration on November 14, looking mighty fine if I do say so. Wearing a sophisticated and classic LBD (like Karen Zambos' Art Deco Dress in Black) with vibrant red Christian Louboutins and a silver and onyx necklace (check out Gemma Redux's Lariat Necklace with Black Agate), Bilson is the epitome of understated chic. While they haven't gone public with their relationship (and many people think it's a faux relationship to begin with- all for show), the pair made sure to keep their distance at the New York premiere of Hayden's new flick, Awake. Rachel and Hayden filmed the upcoming blockbuster Jumper together earlier this year, and have since sparked dozens of rumors about their coy rendezvous'. At the premiere, the two arrived separately and wouldn't be photographed together, that would just be too easy! What do you think, are Rachel and Hayden the real thing, or do you think they're pulling a Reese and Jake and only have a blossoming romance in the works to stir up publicity for their upcoming film?
Rachel Bilson seen on Nov 02 2007 in Nolita, NY. Rachel Bilson was spotted hitting up hot Cuban-Mexican restaurant Cafe Habana in the Nolita area of New York on November 2. Looking casual and cool in a black jacket (like Johnson's Jimmy Jacket with Tie Belt in Black) with a white quilted bag, vintage wash jeans (similar to Paper Denim & Cloth's Bridgette Low Rise Bootcut Jean in Emma) and green Wayfarer-esque shades, Rachel's funky style is even funkier in New York. While I told you before that Rachel is going to best guest starring on the new show "Chuck", we now know the episode names and airdates of Rachel's specific episodes. Rachel's November sweeps episodes are called "Chuck Versus the Truth" and "Chuck Versus the Imported Hard Salami", and air on November 12 and 19, respectively. JustJared.com is reporting that the viewership will determine whether or not Rachel comes back for any additional episodes, so if there are any die-hard Rachel fans out there, make sure and tune in!
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 22 2007 in Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted pumping her own gas on October 22, looking classic and cool in a simple LBD (like ZG by Grimaldi's New Michael Mini Dress in Black or Rails' Vero Pocket Dress in Black) with brown shades (check out Nour's Kiara Sunglasses in Manner Mania) and flat leather boots (like Matiko Footwears grey version, the CinCin Above Ankle Boot in Grey). It seems that Ashley Olsen wasn't the only one stirring things up at Christian Louboutins little gathering earlier this week, as it seems that Rachel and fellow fashionista Kristen Bell arrived in the same pair of Loubous! Not willing to let a fashion tragedy occur, it seems that Rach opted to pop on another pair of her coveted Loubs. Rach was heard saying that she "did a one-two switcheroo and put on my other favorite pair!" It's a good thing she had them with her, otherwise- what a gigantic disaster the night would have been! Kidding, kidding- but this probably would have put a serious damper on Ms. Bilson's night.
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 05 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson's all about the family lately! Spotted sitting on the green grass of a Los Angeles park on October 5, Rach managed to maintain her funky style while spending time with the ones she loves. Wearing a basic grey long sleeve tee (check out Hank Vintage Threads' Thermal Tee with Crown Logo in White for some added girly flair) and straight leg jeans (like James Jeans' Hunter High Rise Straight Leg Jean in Mercury), Rachel also accessorized with a black and white leopard print scarf, green Wayfarer-inspired shades, an orange fedora and a red bag. Talk about the colors of the rainbow! I'm on the fence... what do you think about Rach's look here- stylish and cute or over-the-top weird? Either way, it's good to see Rachel spending time with her fam, as she had an outing with her little sis (not pictured), her grey dog Thurmen Murman, in addition to an unidentified baby. Rach was also spotted at the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square on October 8, giving a blonde woman with a stroller a hug and chatting with another woman with a baby. Allegedly, Rachel was transfixed with the child and couldn't take her eyes off of the baby. Hmm.. wonder if Rachel's starting to feel maternal and wanting to do something about it??
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 26 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson made a trip to a local flea market on September 26, lugging along her precious pooch who I believe is Thurmen Murman (see my latest Bilson entry for my confusion over the identity of this mutt!). One thing is definitely certain, however- this dog is living the fabulous life being carried around by Miss Bilson! Wearing a white tee (like Laura Dahl's Fievel Tee in Winter White- go a few sizes up to wear it loose fitting like Rach) with a Missoni scarf and straight leg blue jeans (similar to James Jeans' Hunter High Rise Straight Jean in Mercury) tucked into caramel colored flat boots, I have to say- I love the stylish simplicity of the outfit, but I am not feeling the awkward-fitting oversized aviators... they make Rach look bug-eyed! I told you a few entries ago that Rach was in talks to sign on for a guest-starring role on NBC's new show "Chuck", and now she has confirmed and is good to go! The series has proved to be an early hit, and can be described as a mix of "Alias" and "Scrubs". Rach's arc will begin to air sometime within the next few months, so make sure and tune in for her triumphant return to television!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 18 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Famous animal lover Rachel Bilson was spotted on her way to lunch with her furry friend, dog Thurmen Murman (whose fur seems to have gotten white with age!), in Los Angeles on September 18. Wearing a black tee (like Rails' Consent T in Ash Black) with black shades (similar to Nour's Maadar Sunglasses in Oro Bianco), a black patent leather bag (Moe Bags' Camy Patent Lamb Bag in Janna is similar), grey-ish blue cropped jeans (like Hudson Jeans' Vixen Highrise Ankle Jean in Bliss) and red flats, Rach looked like her usual cute and casual self. While this pooch does somewhat resemble her main man Thurmen, I'm not 100% sure that this is indeed the dog in question! The hair's longer, it's a snowy shade of white instead of Mr. Murman's usual dark grey coloring… I wonder if Rach has kicked old Thurmen to the curb due to the arrival of new doggy BFF? Let's hope not- there's enough room in Rachel's life for all of her beloved pets.
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 13 2007 in Los Angeles, CA. Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson was spotted out in Los Angeles on September 13 looking classy if not a little frazzled as well! Wearing a basic yet stylish outfit consisting of a pair of good old reliable bootcut 7 for All Mankind jeans (like the Bootcut Jean in Dark Wash or the Bootcut Jean in Vintage) with a navy button-up, caramel colored leather belt (similar to Pellemelle's Pilgrim Belt in Chestnut) and boots, I have to say- Rach is totally channeling Jennifer Aniston here! Couldn't you so see Jen wearing this outfit? Maybe Rach is subconsciously trying to channel Jen in hopes of gaining some of her TV comedy success (is it a coincidence that Jen played Rachel Green on "Friends"? Ok I need to chill with the conspiracy theories). Rachel just signed on to guest-star on "OC" creator Josh Schwartz's new show "Chuck", and he says that he and Rach "were talking and thought it would be fun to work together again, even for a few weeks. Having worked with her for four years, I know how funny Rachel is and what a good match she'd make for the show. We are all really excited and grateful that she could do this." I'm sure Rachel is pretty grateful too, because besides her upcoming feature Jumper, Rachel's career has kind of been on stand-by!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 09 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson was spotted out in LA on September 9 having to deal with all of the headaches that come with getting a flat tire unexpectedly. At least she still looked adorable, which to be honest, is pretty difficult not to happen! Wearing a white top (like Karen Zambos' Scoop Top in Ivory) with skinny blue jeans (similar to Citizens of Humanity's Avedon Stovepipe Pant in Sao Paulo) and accessorized with brown shades (Nour's Kiara Sunglasses in Manner Mania are similar), metallic sandals and a gold necklace (Rachel would love Maya Brenner Design's World Peace Necklace in Gold), Rachel's simple yet stunning style is always present. While Rach has been cavorting with still-rumored beau Hayden Christensen on the islands of Turks and Caicos, she has recently opened up about the one condition necessary for her to go nude in a film. A sex scene with Hayden? Nope. Rachel says "when it comes to nudity onscreen, unless I have a love scene with Johnny Depp, I plan to keep some clothes on." You hear that Johnny?
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 27 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson was spotted stopping off at a gas station to pick up some snacks on July 27, looking like she just wanted to get in and get out of there! Wearing a plum colored cotton dress (Zoa's Laurie Two Pocket Dress is similar, comes in 5 colors and even has pockets!) with stylish heels, Rach of course was wearing her lime green Hermes enamel bangle that she is never (and I mean never) seen without. Talk about finding something you love and sticking with it- I think I might just keel over in shock if I see photos of her out and about without it! While Rach has been kind of laying low and seeming to run an endless amount of errands lately, don't be fooled; she's preparing for the media blitz that will undoubtedly come with the release of her new blockbuster motion picture, Jumper, which she stars in with rumored boy-toy Hayden Christensen. But there might also be something else in the works for Bilson… a role on the hit show "Lost"! Now that TV Guide has announced that there will be two new characters on the upcoming season, fans of the series are opting for Rachel (or possible Kristen Bell) to take the part. Only time will tell!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 23 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Putting aside all of the Lohan DUI-gate madness and the Britney OK! Magazine debacle for a hot second, there is actually (as hard as this is to believe) other celebrity news going on in the world, like Rachel Bilson being on the dating scene once again! She and rumored BF Hayden Christensen went shopping at The Home Depot in LA on July 23, picking up house supplies and buckets of paint for some good old fashioned summertime house renovating. Dressed in a short white embroidered dress (similar to Bellekat's Crystal Dress) with brown shades (like Nour's Kiara Sunglasses in Manner Mania) and matching sandals, Rachel also carried along a big black bag with a trio of side pockets (just like Aaneta's Poqueta Messenger Bag) and wore her "I'd-die-without-it" lime green Hermes ceramic bangle. I love how certain celebs have things that they just always wear and cannot live without (exhibit A: Mary-Kate and that fringe Prada bag or exhibit B: Nicole and her Balenciagas). See, stars: they ARE just like us! One thing that might make Rachel a little less like us, however, is what she does on dates. Rachel said that when she was set up on a blind date recently (wait- I thought she was dating Hayden! Or maybe she just shops with him?) that her suitor "took me to Skid Row in downtown L.A. to see the homeless people. And, you know, in a way, I thought it was cool to experience it, but it was a little random for a first date." I don't really know what to say about this, because it seems like Rachel is treating homeless people like they are animals in the zoo and you can just go and "see them" for entertainment. But then again, people watch Rachel and what she does in her own life for entertainment, so in a way- this kind of makes sense!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 18 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson opted for a shopping trip yesterday, July 18, in Los Angeles, stopping at the Virgin Megastore for some new tunes. Reunited with beau Hayden Christensen (I guess that guy Rach was spotted kissing outside of the Chip and Pepper event was just a friend), the two had a low-key day of shopping and hitting up In N Out for some post-shopping fuel. While the only pictures taken of the couple together were in Rachel's car, she sure looked cute as she left the Virgin Megastore solo. Wearing high-waisted, wide leg jeans (like Joe's Jeans' Muse Jeans in Tricky) with a basic black tank (Gold Hawk's Sheer Drape Cami is a little dressier), a brown belt and black shades, Rachel's cool and casual style definitely took center stage. For a while there, Rachel was staying out of the spotlight, but now she is finally being photographed more, attending events and just going about her daily routine. Maybe she is enjoying being in the spotlight once more, due to the impending release of her new film "Jumper"? Rachel and the rest of the cast (including Hayden) will be attending Twentieth Century Fox's Comic-Con, an event which previews upcoming films and gives fans a sneak peak. "Jumper" focuses around a young man who is able to teleport himself anywhere. Glad to hear Rachel is active with new projects- can't wait for more.
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 15 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Seemingly sweet starlet Rachel Bilson made a trip to a local Jamba Juice on July 15, casually strolling along and obviously thirsting for a refreshing beverage to cool her down. Wearing a cute red cap-sleeved dress (Revisteer's Pleated Dress is similar to Rachel's, as is the cut of Zoa's Short Sleeve Tie Back Dress, which also comes in red) with aviators and her favorite lime green Hermes bangle, Rachel seems to be as sweet as cherry pie. But are looks deceiving? Reports are swirling around the internet lately that although Rachel's character Summer was sweet and quirky on "The OC", in real life Rachel is anything but. One fan says, of her meeting with Rachel, that "she was so nasty to me. She wouldn't sign this magazine I had because the people said mean things about her in the editor's note. So she was rude to me!! So I asked her nicely, and she like flipped out, and I was like 'why are you being such a b***h?' and she told me to 'f**k myself'." Another person is saying that she "works at a store where Rachel shops often. Her credit card declined once, and she threw a fit. I wanted to slap her in the face. Plus, she's always been SO rude to employees." Can this be?? Then again, actors do get paid to act, so maybe all of Rachel's adorableness is all just an act. No- I won't believe it!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 11 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. When Rachel Bilson split with Adam Brody, it took her a while to move on, but then she was spotted with Hayden Christensen and suddenly the two were "dating". While Rachel and Hayden remained mum about their status many believed this was all a stunt to drum up publicity for their upcoming film. But this was a few months ago, and Rachel has rarely made public appearances since then. Now, Rachel was photographed in the arms of an older mystery man leaving the Argyle Hotel in Hollywood last night- and giving him a goodnight kiss! Now, let's not jump to conclusions just yet, this could just be a friend to whom she's giving a little peck. But then again, this doesn't reek of a publicity stunt like the whole Rachel/Hayden romance did, so maybe Bilson is finally over Brody and over pretending with Hayden? Time will tell! Earlier in the night, Rachel attended an event in Los Angeles and happily posed for cameras looking as cute as ever. In a loose-fitting top (reminiscent of Gold Hawk's Summer Breeze Top) and wide-leg jeans (like Kasil's Chelsea Jean), Rachel truly let her accessories take center stage: a delicate necklace, a lime green Hermes cuff and a white clutch with python detailing (Antoinette Lee Designs' Vita Stitch Clutch and Carla Mancini's Python Clutch are similar bags to Rachel's). While Rachel is definitely looking adorable, I am eager to see her in some new projects- you can't ride that "OC" gravy train forever, Rach!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 23 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson spent June 23 casually shopping and relaxing with her little sis, looking adorable as always (I mean really, can there ever be a Rachel sighting where I don’t say she’s “adorable as always?”) and very ready for summer. In a rusty red mini-dress (Karen Zambos’ Scoop Dress in Rust is similar) with aviators, white flats (Davis by Ruthie Davis’ Zipper Flats would be perfect with that Karen Zambos dress) and carrying a Zac Posen bag, Rach looked casual but not like she’s trying too hard. This look, trust me, is hard to pull off, but Rachel always manages to effortlessly. What I am wondering, however, is that since Rachel has been strolling, shopping, relaxing and attending so many charity events lately, when is she going to make her triumphant return to acting? Ex-“OC” bud Mischa Barton is working on new projects (granted, they don’t sound too stimulating- hello Finding t.A.T.u.), so when is Rachel gonna get back to work? Maybe she just wants a summer to relax and enjoy life, which is totally understandable. Save me a spot next to you on the beach, Rach!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 09 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson made an appearance at the "A Time For Heroes" event to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation over the weekend on June 9, and was accompanied by none other than her adorable little sister Hattie. The girls were definitely there for a good cause, as Rachel lent a famous hand for a deserving organization. Wearing black skinnies with a white burnout tee, Rach completed her look with a Chanel bag and black cropped jacket (Walter's Chambray Girly Moto Jacket in yellow is a similar, more Springtime-y version). Of course, Rachel looked eclectic and cute as usual. Doing everything she could do avoid questions regarding her rumored romance with Hayden Christensen, Rach devoted the day to the good cause at hand. Considering she has such a younger sibling, Rachel has said that pediatric AIDS is a cause that's very close to her heart. So refreshing to see a young Hollywood starlet not swept up in DUI or rehab scandals!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 06 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson cruised the streets of LA recently while munching on a freshly popped bag of popcorn, and while Rachel was eating her midday snack while looking cuter than ever, she was basically telling her ex-boyfriend Adam Brody to eat his little heart out! Wearing a classic white Spring-time dress (Walter's Antique Lace Combo Dress is a similarly stylish, intricately detailed Spring-time frock) with brown peeptoes and her favorite Chloe sunglasses and Chanel bag, it's obvious that Rachel set both men's and women's tongues wagging this day; the men's tongues due to her killer legs, the women's tongues because many of them would kill for her simple yet girly style! Someone else who seems to be unable to get enough Rachel in his life is her ex-BF, Adam Brody, because he is allegedly "distraught" over breaking up with his former "OC" costar. Sources say that Adam "is still gutted about his break-up with Rachel. He thinks he has gone from having it all to having nothing." Now that Rachel has been (very publicly) canoodling with Hayden Christensen, Adam thinks he has lost his shot at this cutie's heart. As big of a sap as I sound right now, I have to say, I'm still holding out hope for a Seth and Summer reunion in real life!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 02 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. As Rachel Bilson stepped out to pick up a snack in LA on May 2, she proved that she thinks skinny is so last season… skinny jeans that is! Clad in a light wash pair of wide-leg Levi's (Freedom of Choice makes a more stylish, darker alternative) and a black ¾ sleeve tee under a white floral cami (like this Paper Denim & Cloth Cotton Lawn Camisole), Rachel also accessorized with a patterned bag, aviators, and the lime green Hermes bracelet she's been so fond of lately. Even though she looks like she kind of just rolled out of bed with that hair, she's still cute as a button as she multitasks digging through her purse, holding her wallet, and yakking on the phone while it's propped on her shoulder. See, stars are just like us! Someone who is conspicuously missing from the picture however is her rumored new boo Hayden Christensen. Is he just around the corner waiting to pick Rach up in his Ferrari while she picks up the food, or is he on the phone with his publicist planning his and Rachel's next public outing? Hmm….
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 27 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson enjoyed a casual outdoor lunch with a girlfriend on April 27, sipping on a glass of red wine while she ate her meal. There's nothing wrong with that! Wearing cuffed jean shorts with a grey and black striped v-neck tee (IISLI's Rugby Tee has a similar pattern), gold hoops, a brown leather belt and lime green Hermes bracelet, Rach looked casual and cute as always. Rumors surrounding how much time she's been spending with Hayden Christensen are still on everyone's lips, due to how the maybe-they-are, maybe-they-aren't, and-it's-all-a-publicity-stunt couple have been seen together so much lately. From Hayden picking Rachel up in his Ferrari to take her shopping at Barney's to Rachel meeting Hayden's brother, I think things are definitely starting to heat up. Now whether this is real or artificial heat, that’s for you to decide!
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 23 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Rachel Bilson strolled the sunny streets of Los Angeles on April 23 with her mangy mutt, Thurmen Murman, as well as her rumored boyfriend, Hayden Christensen. Wearing a black and white floral patterned tunic (for a similar pattern in a sexier, more "going out"-ish top, check out this one from Tricia Fix) with black tights, shell earrings and black Uggs, Rachel of course added a touch of couture with her red quilted Chanel bag. While her former boo, lovably geeky Adam Brody, just released one of his first feature films, In the Land of Women (which ended up bombing), Rachel has been a whole lot more picky about her projects. That's why she's not releasing crappy movie after crappy movie! Rachel has made it evidently clear that she definitely wants to wait for the right film to come along (aw!). She said how she's "not just going to work, because there are films that you just could just do such as genre pictures and what not.” I get the point Rach, you don't want to do a lame movie just because you're offered the part, but still… I hope you attach yourself to a project soon, I miss seeing your adorable face on the screen!
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 23 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. As Rachel Bilson did some shopping on a sunny LA day on March 23, wearing cream boots, a babydoll black tunic dress, Chloe shades and a rope bracelet (new trend alert?), the stylish It Girl knew that the buzz about her this week is a new hookup alert. Since breaking up with her former "OC" co-star Adam Brody last year, Rach has been flyin' solo, for the most part. Rachel recently said that those cold, cold nights are the worst, and that "the nights can get lonely, y'know. I'm happy being single, but sometimes you need someone to cuddle [with]." Aw, poor Rach! But don't go feeling all sorry for her just yet, she has been spotted canoodling (don't you just love that word!) with Hayden Christensen, her co-star in the upcoming film Jumper. You can take a look at their public PDA fest here. Sources said that the "new couple didn’t seem to mind being seen looking “cozy” together, and openly showed affection to one another." While they are both adorable and are totally cute together, my Publicity Stunt Sense is tingling on this one. There are rumors, from multiple sources, that Hayden is not of the, shall I say, "female persuasion", and enjoys romantic partners of the other gender. Not sure how true these rumors are, but it would be a plausible reason for why these two are so publicly flaunting their affection for one another.
Rachel Bilson seen on Mar 08 2007 in Los Feliz, Ca. Cutie Rachel Bilson headed over to Los Feliz on March 8 for an appointment at a casting office, followed up with a couple of smoothies from Pinkberry. They would have to be crazy not to hire her, unless the role was for, you know, an unattractive woman with absolutely no charm. Looking professional in navy slacks, brown sunglasses and a sheer blue blouse, it seems that Rachel is pretty fond of this particular top, because it was definitely not the first time she has worn it! This is one of the reason's why she seems so down to earth, because like me (and I'm sure like you too), when Rachel has an item of clothing she loves, she'll wear it more than once. Totally modest, Rachel has said that "Everyone needs a stylist to pull clothes for you when you have all these events because you can't shop that much and you are not going to buy all these gowns for thousands of dollars. But I know what I like to wear. No one actually styles me or dresses me." No entourage? No tables at the hottest clubs? Nope. While Rach is seen at Hyde here and there, she definitely is more likely to spend the night in watching a movie or the day walking her dogs. How can you just not love her?
Rachel Bilson seen on Feb 24 2007 in Santa Monica, Ca. Talk about an open upbringing! Cutie-pie Rachel Bilson has recently revealed that, due to the fact that her momma is a sex therapist, she has never even bothered to hide facts about her sex life, because she knows her mom would find out anyways. While most parents haven't got a clue when their children lose their virginity, Rachel's mom was definitely on the ball. Rachel tells of how her mom's "great at talking about relationships. She knew the day after I lost my virginity. Oh, yeah. She starting talking to me about sex. She said, 'It happened last night, didn't it?' I was like, 'How did you do that?!' She did the whole mom thing, of course: Use condoms, etc. Weird, but helpful." I have to admit, this is way better than those parents who live in a fairyland and think that their children are never going to get busy, then are shocked when the kids come home one day preggers. Viva la Momma Bilson!
Recently, Rachel made an appearance at the 2007 Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica on February 24, wearing a basic white minidress with a big funky necklace. She looks kind of plain Jane here, I've seen her look hotter. Maybe she's doing the simple thing because she's been caught up with "The OC" finally ending.. but what a good finale that was!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jan 01 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Former-"OC" cutie Rachel Bilson is, like the rest of her castmates, looking forward to being cast in new roles, now that FOX has decided to pull the plug on the once white-hot teen soap. While Rachel portrayed the ditzy Summer Roberts, who dabbled in environmental activism but decided that it wasn't for her, rumor has it that Rach can't wait to get out there and stretch herself as an actress in different roles. After earning raves for her part in Zach Braff's "The Last Kiss", I don't think it'll be too hard for this stylish gal to nab some killer roles!
Rachel stepped out on January 1 in a white sweats, a black short sleeve tee (try going a size or two up, and wear it baggy like Rachel does), a black scarf, and brown shades with an adorable pair of moccasins. Talk about being chic and comfortable at the same time! Rachel truly can do no fashion wrong.
Rachel Bilson seen on Dec 11 2006 in Redondo Beach, Ca. Rachel Bilson was spotted on December 11 in Redondo Beach, going for a solitary stroll with pet pooch Thurmen Murman (I'm not gonna ask) and picking up some groceries. Rachel was stylin' in light destroyed jeans with an orange sweatshirt and oversized aviator sunglasses.The reason why Rach was spotted flying solo is that she and fellow "OC" cast-mate Adam Brody have decided to call it quits on their tumultuous three year relationship. Geez, talk about a chain of unexpected and sad breakups! First Britney and Kevin (about time), then Ryan and Reese (devastated), and Pam and Kid Rock (trying to hide my surprise), and now Rachel and Adam! They first met on the set of their hit show, and have been rockin' steady ever since. A source close to the couple told People that "It was a typical romance and they just grew apart; they've been on and off for a while now…". Think about how awkward their romantic scenes on the show are going to be now! Adam has been seen party hopping and hitting up such hotspots as Hyde, while Rachel has spent more time alone looking inward. They have decided to act mature, however, and are splitting custody (what is he, a kid?) of their dog Thurmen Murman. It looks like, for now, the sun has set on another relationship down in Orange County.
Rachel Bilson seen on Oct 04 2006 in West Hollywood, Ca. After last night's long anticipated premiere of teen soap The OC, fans of the show finally have answers regarding what has become of their favorite Orange County natives following the untimely kicking-the-bucket of Mischa Barton's character, Marissa. Now that Summer has gone off to college at Brown, leave it to Rachel Bilson to be the cutest darn hippie ever! Series creator Josh Schwartz says that "Summer is grieving in a strange way, and has completely reinvented herself as a hippie". In the premiere, Summer is knee-deep in random environmental causes, including one against the caging of chickens, that could not be farther from the ditzy girly girl who was obsessed with celebrity gossip that Summer used to be. I wonder if this "new Summer" will stick, or the good old Sum will come bursting through. Only time can tell, and in the OC, one this is for sure.. change is a given!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 26 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. While Rachel Bilson is currently globe-trotting to promote her new film "The Last Kiss", media attention has focused more on Rachel's on-screen (and off-screen) chemistry with co-star Zach Braff. Rumor has it that even though Rach is dating her longtime geek chic boyfriend Adam Brody that she has been cozying up to Braff. Who knows, this may only be gossip and I seriously hope it is! It's all about Seth and Summer... no man should come between them!
To get Rachel's casual look that's perfect for staying cool and comfortable while traveling, pick up a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans, like the Dojo Jeans in Katmandu, similar to Rachel's. For a basic gray tee, nothing is better than The Secession's Cougar Tee, which mixes in a little bit of that vintage, gym class t-shirt feel. While "The Last Kiss" may be Bilson's film debut, let's not hope she is also debuting another role.. boyfriend cheater!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 01 2006 in New York, NY. Rachel Bilson bops around in New York, doing a little shopping and picking up some coffee, on September 1st, looking adorable as always, and with SK3 tightly in hand. Although Rachel's gray skinnys, like our J Brand 12 Inch Pencil Leg Jeans in Gray are the hottest of the hot right now, it is usually not a very good idea to blend right into your surroundings. In other words, get off that gray street, Rach! To finish off this look, grab a cute pair of red flats and a red bag, and throw on with a black longsleeve, like out Nation Ltd Long Sleeve Inside Out Tee in Black, and hit the town. Holla!
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 25 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. Boy oh boy, Rachel Bilson sure knows how to walk sown the sidewalk in a diva pose! Arm out holding her bag, other hand fixing her shades, she’s workin’ it! Running errands before celebrating her 25th birthday with boyfriend Adam Brody and her family, Rachel always looks timelessly cool. In a pair of skinny jeans, like our Joe’s Jeans Chelsea in Fitzgerald, paired with cute stilettos and an oversize bag, Rachel looks super sophisticated with this wrap sweater and a basic tank, like our American Vintage Double Strap Cotton Tank in Black. And of course, she's gotta rock those trademark 80's shades of hers. But let's get back to one important topic, Rachel is 25!? Talk about not looking your age, she doesn't look a day over 22!
Rachel Bilson seen on Aug 20 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. On her way to the Teen Choice Awards, complete with bodyguard in tow, Rachel Bilson looks absolutely gorgeous and sophisticated. Pairing the hottest shoes of the season, patent leather stilettos, with a ruffled black halter dress, similar to our Ruth Knit Halter Dress with Gold Chain, it is definitely no doubt that Rachel will emerge as the definitive hottie this season on "The OC", now that Mischa is out of the picture. The one question that was on everyone's lips, though, was where was Rachel's beau, Adam Brody, at the awards show? Maybe filming a movie or taking care of the couple's dogs, either way, we miss Seth Cohen!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jul 18 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. In one of her casual dresses and funky sandal combinations that she is known for, Rachel Bilson takes laidback Californian style up a notch. This girl seriously needs to buy stock in babydoll dresses, because we all know she alone could keep that industry afloat! Rachel looks adorable as always in a dress resembling our American Vintage Voile Puffed Collar Dress in Black, paired with white sandals and a black quilted bag. Not going for the super oversized glasses, Rach sticks with a medium sized pair, like our Nour Madaar Sunglasses in Oro Bianco. Out and about with boyfriend Adam Brody, I always think it's so funny how celebrity couples never walk next to each other, one is always in front of the other! I mean geez, you're dating this person, would it kill you two to hold hands!
Rachel Bilson seen on Jun 04 2006 in Los Angeles, CA. Pairing the black version of the Lotta Stensson Best Top (we carry the turquoise version) with a medium wash denim, "OC" cutie Rachel Bilson is ready to hit the clubs and dazzle her fans. A basic, flirty top like this one that drapes gorgeously is a must for the choosy fashionista. Recently, a poll in In Touch Weekly found that Rachel's BF, Adam Brody, was one of the most desirable boyfriends in Hollywood! Call it geek-chic, but Rachel has two things going for her: an enviable boyfriend and a killer closet!
Rachel Bilson seen on May 20 2006 in Los Angeles, CA. No one has been doing the whole Bohemian-chic look better than Rachel Bilson lately. The petite star of the hit series "The OC" always seems to look bohemian yet classy at the same time. Running errands in Los Angeles with her on-screen, as well as real-life, boyfriend Adam Brody, Rachel has created a look that is sure to be imitated many a time. To start, get the pair of cropped jeans that Rachel wears, the Penny Jean by Siwy Denim, which is a nice medium vintage wash. From there, the beauty is in the details. A flowy linen tank, like our Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Racer Tank Dress, is perfect, along with our Jenna White Jewelry Citrine Stone Circle Necklace and Kooba Handbags Braedon Woven Bag in Brown to finish off this cute summer look. Known to be such an animal lover, with two dogs she adopted from the pound, it’s strange to see Rachel walking down the street without one of her adorable dogs in tow.
Rachel Bilson seen on May 03 2006 in Los Angeles, California. A breezy alternative to the season's perfectly tailored knee-length shorts, casually rolled cuffs are a shortcut to chic.
Rachel Bilson seen on Apr 13 2005 in Beverly Hills, California. Rachel is always sweet in a mini by Chip & Pepper, that isn't too short for Rachel's petit frame. Just perfect!
Rachel Bilson seen on Sep 22 2004 in The Grove, Los Angeles, CA. Rachel Bilson was spotted wearing A Cynthia Vincent sheer blouse over a Wyeth sequin cami with a pair of Hudson Jeans to the premiere of I Love Huckabee.
