Well Played, Rachel Bilson


well-played

So, Rachel Bilson is in NYC — presumably doing press for the return of Hart of Dixie, which is TONIGHT, so get ready for some abs — and for once, I actually do feel all Stars: They’re Just Like Us! Because she only packed one pair of jeans, and is wearing the heck out of them. Like a normal person. She also happens to look super cute. Let’s peek.

    I would very much like to own the swazer.

    Love everything about every one of these looks.

    The grey fuzzy thing looks like she dragged it out a dryer vent. Other than that, she looks perfect for casual autumn in the big city.

    I covet the shoes in the fourth photo.

    If it’s cool enough for a grey raggy-looking sweaterblazer, it’s too cold for the flimsy pink skirt and summery shoes under it.

      Absolutely. A mini topped with a heavy bulky sweater looks poorly thought out. The rest is excellent, except maybe the yanked-back, bump-it hair.

      I was just thinking that. And the white bag in the last pic with the fall clothing. She needs a Southern Get-A-Grip friend. “It’s after Labor Day, honey!”

        As another Southern Lady, I disagree — I really like the mix of textures and fabrics with the swazer and the flowy skirt, and the “no white after Labor Day” rule has thankfully passed on to the land of hoop skirts and crinolines.

        I think La Bilson looks great. The boyfriend jeans aren’t my favorite style, but hey, she looks cute and comfortable and fun and appropriate. And like she really knows how to efficiently pack a suitcase.

          I’m with Gigi on this one… I can’t bring myself to wear white after Labor Day. I think if the weather is warm, you can pull off some select white pieces (NOT shoes), but especially when it’s getting chilly like this over on the east coast, white is just silly.

      And it really isn’t cool enough on the East Coast yet to justify that sweater. It is in the low 70′s and super humid.

      That’s what I was thinking, too — swazer with summery dress? And boots without socks?

      Kat: I’m with you on no white after Labor Day, with an exception for the occasional blouse or sweater. Call me old-fashioned!

        That first part of my post (swazer and dress) was intended as a reply to Kirst. (The positioning of replies can be inconsistent!)

    She is too cute! And with a great sense of style. Total girl crush.

    Love the outfits, and love the heels from picture 1. She just reminded me why i used to like platform heels – I’d forgotten with the excess of super high, tacky, hoof-like, Kardashian-platforms the past year.

    Love it all! Rachel Bilson is so cute, and such a snappy dresser. I think in the dream scenario where you have one star’s wardrobe, I’d choose hers. We’re similar in body type, and she really knows how to dress herself to make her look taller. And everything is on trend, but not so boringly trendy. Sorry, I’m kvelling.

    You know you’re a serious Hart of Dixie fan when you recognize that Alexander Wang Noemi heels she’s wearing in the third pic as a pair that she’s worn on the show, but in a different color. *Hangs head*

      Yeah ditto.
      The AC at my work *doesn’t*, and I’m going crazy waiting for Fall to actually arrive.
      I can’t even wear my thinnest sweater yet, let alone a blazer…

    You guys! She puts on sunglasses and becomes Diane Lane’s mini-me! How have we never noticed this before?

    So in some photos the jeans looks trim and some they look baggy. Are they the same jeans and the slim photos were taken earlier and by the end of the weekend they were bagging out? She is super-cute and I love the sweater under the blazer, course on someone not wee, it would look line-backerish

    She is SO PRETTY in Pic 3. I would kill to look that lovely in a candid shot.

    Pic 3 is very Kate Middleton-esque.

    And so excited about Hart of Dixie. I never thought I would be so happy about the return of formal shorts.

    This is perfect, since I’m currently watching the season premiere of “Hart of Dixie” and loving it! Also perfect… Rachel Bilson! Also loving… Her wardrobe! All of it! WANT! Also want… Zoe Hart’s wardrobe! By the way, why does Zoe keep telling everyone *SPOILER ALERT* that she slept with Wade? If I slept with him, would I tell the world? Ummmm, I think I would, yeah! Go Zoe! FAB!!!

    This is how a petite woman should dress to look taller. Nicely done!

    I love these looks, though I’m not really into the mini and swayzer look (and it should be swayzer in honor of the dear, departed Patrick, who probably never wore one, but whatever). I do prefer her cute little Coach purse (or Coach-looking purse) to the big white statement bag. The big shopper is probably more convenient, but I sort of hate those bags.

    She looks great and i don’t always think that she does.

    Loved the opening night of season 2. Really like where they are going with the characters.

    Ach, Jessica, I think you’re fabulous but it’s “ogle”!
