Every celebrity seems to have a pet cause, and we have a hard time keeping track of who supports what and deciding which ones we’re going to contribute to on our non-star salaries. Take Rachel Bilson. She designed this bracelet to help support the Diamond Empowerment Fund, which works to educate and develop disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource. Would we have chosen to donate money to that organization on our own? Probably not, but we had already imagined the bracelet becoming our new signature accessory when we found out that $20 from each sale goes to the foundation. Isn’t it nice when buying something you already wanted benefits other people? [Macy's via Luxist] Keep reading »
“How I Met Your Mother” has me a little confused. I’ve watched the show since the beginning and think it is one of the best sitcoms, evah. It’s laugh-out-loud funny and unpredictable (Who can forget Slapsgiving or Robin’s Canadian pop single, “Let’s Go To The Mall”?), and gets the late 20-something experience like no other show. Not to mention that Neil Patrick Harris as Barney is one of the funniest characters of all time. But, I digress. The premise of the show has been that Ted is narrating to his children how he met their mother. Only, fours years in, we still have no idea who she is. Earlier this year, the show’s executive producer PROMISED that in episode 100—airing this coming Monday—we would finally be introduced to this elusive mother. At the same time, it was leaked that Rachel Bilson was cast for a recurring role on the show. It made so much sense—Ted and Rachel, Rachel and Ted. They’re both brunette and would look adorable together. But now new casting news is messing everything up. Keep reading »
The holidays and Black Friday are coming, which means it’s time to hit the mall for gift inspiration. Enter associated feelings of panic. This year, why not recruit a celebrity to do the hard work for you? After all, they’ve spent the whole year trying new clothing, shoes, and goodies, so who else would know better? Stylish girl about town Rachel Bilson’s picks, from Piperlime, after the jump! Keep reading »
Check out Rachel Bilson. She’s looking seriously put-together in her majah heels, chic black pants, fab Phillip Lim bag and pretty blow-out. (And her friend is looking adorable, too!) Where’s the party or red carpet, you ask? There isn’t one — she’s headed out for a day of shopping … looking so on top of her sartorial game. There isn’t a pair of tattered, L.A. cool jeans in sight! This reminds me of when I used to spend an entire Saturday shopping. Before hitting up, say, Barneys or Bergdorf’s to browse the racks, I’d spend a ridiculously absurd and laughable amount of time planning what I was going to wear. (Yep, all just to go shopping.) I had to look very put-together, but not like I was trying too hard. And while you may find this a colossal waste of time, I gotta point out that dressing up before shopping in fancy-pants stores really did get me better customer service from the sales floor staff (sad, but true!) and I just felt better about myself, even if I was just there to find a new pair of, say, gloves or something small. Do you ever do the same thing—seriously think long and hard about what to wear for a day of hitting the stores? Or can you just not be bothered? Keep reading »
Whoa, is Rachel Bilson indulging in some self-love in her shoot for Flaunt magazine’s November issue? To be frank, we would too, if we looked that hot.
This spread shows a side of the star that’s about as far from her sweet “O.C.”-girl personality as possible. We’re loving every shot, from a sultry pose in frilly lingerie to an adventurous Bilson in a leotard with a Catwoman vibe. Overall, not the most wearable styles (then again, what fashion magazine cares about that?), but an outfit with some zippered, rocker-esque pants does give us some inspiration. Check out some more images after the jump! [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
We’re all relieved that Rachel Bilson may soon get her jeans back—I just don’t know if she’ll want them now that they’ve been worn by someone else. We’re also glad that Paris Hilton has already picked up of big chunk of the $2 million-worth of jewelry stolen from her home. In September, we reported that 18-year-old Nicholas Prugo had been arrested on suspicion that he took part in the burglaries of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Partridge’s cribs, and we speculated on how long before he turned in his well-accessorized conspirators. Well, now the jig is up for Prugo’s fantastically dressed teen gang. Four teens have been charged in the robberies, and police expect to charge three more. Keep reading »
“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.”

We’ve waited patiently (SO PATIENTLY) for four years to find out who will be the titular mother on our fave sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother.” According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, the show’s executive producer told him that episode #100 of the show would contain “some serious mother action.” He elaborated, “It’ll be the closest Ted’s ever come to her. He’s getting a step closer every episode this season, and episode 100 we kind of go bananas with it.” And guess who Ausiello has just discovered has been cast for a role in episode 100? The amazing Rachel Bilson. I’m jumping up and down because that’s so freaking adorable. [EW]

Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
So the Fashion Police have a bone to pick with Rachel Bilson, seen here attending the Salvatore Ferragamo fashion show in Milan, asking what’s up with this “funky dress” and dissing her “lace gloves.” Here’s where we stand on the matter: Bilson is a total hottie who can get away with fashion murder, and we think it’s refreshing to see a well-tailored suit that shows off her figure in a more subtle way, as opposed to the usual starlet in flashy strapless bondage dress look. The gloves are actually part of the sheer shirt she’s wearing underneath, and it looks edgy and modern to let longish shirt sleeves peep out from a jacket. In short, back off you prosecutors, this woman is innocent. Keep reading »
No, I’m not talking about Rachel Bilson, but her unidentified companion needs to lean on Rachel after leaving Bardot nightclub. Other photos show that Rachel was the designated driver for this outing. [Hollywood, 8/7/09] Keep reading »
