Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Lucy Liu or Rachel Bilson


Two of the most well dressed women in Hollywood, wore this very interesting navy 3.1 Phillip Lim dress. I love the white origami-style folds on the waist and skirt, giving it a delicate edge.

One of my many girl crushes, Lucy Liu, looked very stylish wearing the navy Lim dress, when she attended Phillip Lim’s Fall 2009 show during New York Fashion Week.

She completed her look with a pair of black YSL Tribute pumps, and a stack of gold bracelets.

Rachel Bilson wore the same dress a few days later, when she lent her support for a good cause at the Jergens and Skin Cancer Foundation’s Glow In The Dark event in LA.

As much as I love Lucy, Rachel wore this dress much better.


After searching the web, I could only find this version of the Phillip Lim dress. This dress has the white fold details around the neck too. You can purchase it from Browns Fashion for £665/€715.36/$946.16.

    Suits rachel better because she is smaller and maybe also looks better against a white background…

    I think this dress looks much better on Lucy Liu. It fits her body more than Rachel’s.
