What to wear to the premiere of the hilarious, female-driven new comedy “The To Do List”? A short party dress, natch. I’m completely obsessed with Rachel Bilson’s blue frock, while Aubrey’s sweetheart neckline dress is adorable too. Done well, ladies. [Photo: INFPhoto.com]
Serious question: is Rachel Bilson still an actress? What does she do nowadays? There are some celebrities who only seem to exist in the context of airports and coming out of coffee shops, and Rachel Bilson is one of them. (“The O.C.,” though. Now that was a great show.) Whatever her reason for being, I sure hope this neck tattoo situation is not for real. I mean, I doubt that it is — Rachel doesn’t strike me as the tacky neck tattoo type — but if it’s a temporary tat, that raises another series of questions entirely, mostly beginning and ending with “why.” [Photo: FameFlynet]
We first met wee Rachel Bilson when she played Summer on “The O.C.,” the improbably popular show about a California bad boy forced to live with a rich fam in Orange County. These days, she plays Dr. Zoe Hart, a young doctor who moves to a small southern town to take over her father’s medical practice, on the CW show “Hart of Dixie.” (P.S.

She also serves as a style advisor and blogger (welcome to the glamorous life, Rach) for Sunglass Hut. As for her own personal style, Rachel says she shies away from “slutty dresses,” and instead invokes a more modest silhouette. Let’s take a look at some of her best looks, shall we? Keep reading »
I often wish I had come into the world several decades earlier than my early-nineties debut (hi mom!), but one of the few benefits that make me grateful to have been an adolescent of the aughties is that I was of prime age for the glory days of “The O.C.” I am not being sarcastic; that show was fucking good. As a result of my unyielding affection for that paradigm of zeitgeist-y melodramatic (so melodramatic) teenage television, my love for Rachel Bilson runs deep. She’s just adorable in every way, even without mentioning the obvious fact that she owns one of the most crush-worthy wardrobes this side of Newport Beach. Oh, and Luke Skywalker.
Beyond that, I have never known Rachel to make a sartorial misstep, and this occasion for TCA’s Summer Party is no different. The critics, however, have spoken, and they are not liking the unusual hairstyle she sported on Sunday’s red carpet. It feels to me like an almost-hit: it would have looked really good had she mussed up the tight side to make it look a little prettier and more undone. As it is, I don’t hate the look, but there’s definitely an imbalance to it. Whatever — Rachel Bilson is still fundamentally perfect and I refuse to fault her for this slight blunder … even if said “slight blunder” vaguely channels Donald Trump.
