Fug the Cover: Rachel Bilson

In the interest of starting on a positive note, I must admit that if Aussie magazine Shop ‘Til You Drop were available here in the United States, I would totally be a subscriber. I am all about reading articles about fabulous bargains and what beauty editors are actually doing at home, and it goes without saying that I enjoy reading about the secrets of A List Hair (I suspect that in many cases, secret number one is: crazy expensive extensions). And if I were a subscriber, I can guarantee you that on the day I toddled downstairs to get my mail and pulled this out of the box, I would have said aloud to no one, “what is up with Rachel Bilson?” Because — while I love me some Bilson and think she almost always looks adorable — she truly could not look more perplexed here. Is the ginormo corset-belt impacting her ability to breath? Does she really hate that hat? Does she just want to get this over with and go home? Because that’s how it looks.

On the other hand, I like her skirt. So she’s got that going for her.
