Fashion Retrospective: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson Having Shopping Spree
Rachel Bilson takes her fashionable self shopping.
Hart of Dixie leading actress, Rachel Bilson, who is on the May 2013 Cosmopolitan cover and a clothing hoarder, has a laid back feminine vintage-inspired style with a wardrobe of a shabby chic 70-year-old woman.

THE ORIGINAL LOOK: Bilson wore a black tube top, extremely cuffed jeans, and Pepto Bismol colored pointed toe pumps at the 2003 Teen’s Choice Awards. This look embodied the LA girl in her quite well. She looked cute and innocent as always but those jeans and shoes were a bit tragic. Considering it was 2003 and a very casual event, we will give her a pass.

THE LATEST LOOK: My, oh my, what a change! Bilson wore a pink leopard chiffon Valentino gown at the Art of Elysium’s 6th Annual Black-tie Gala on January 12, 2013. Although wearing Jersey Shore-esque print isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, this works for her. If you’re used to Bilson’s style, you know she can somehow just rock a girly granny piece that wouldn’t work for a notorious skimpy-dressed starlet or most for that matter. After all, she is “not too crazy about slutty dresses.” (via Huffington Post

My favorite of the frocks and suits goes to the gorgeous embroidered feather Chanel dress she wore to the Art of Elysium’s 5th Annual Black-tie “Heaven” Charity Gala paired with a Chanel clutch and delicious satin pointed-toe Casadei pumps.
