Rachel Bilson In Chanel – The CW Network’s New York 2012 Upfront

Rachel Bilson was in New York City today attending The CW Network’s 2012 Upfront presentation for ‘Hart of Dixie’.

The actress tends to favour two brands: Chanel and Vanessa Bruno. On this occasion it was the former, as she wore a Chanel Spring 2012 dress.

When I pictured this ivory dress on the red carpet, I assumed it would be modified to exclude the frilly piece around the neck, but I actually like the look with it.

The dress would’ve been any run-of-the-mill dress without the frilled collar.

Rachel’s ultra girlie look was teamed with matching satin Casadei pumps.

Ombre waves and pretty pink lips completed the look.

Rachel Bilson In Vanessa Bruno & Isabel Marant – Sunglass Hut’s Spring Line Launch Party

Rachel Bilson attended the Sunglass Hut Celebrates Spring Styles in Santa Monica, California, as Style Director for the brand.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ star sported a laidback ensemble of chic separates.

She paired a black Vanessa Bruno oversized blazer with a white tank top by the same designer and vibrant Isabel Marant hot-pink wide-leg pants.

A black Chanel bag and ShoeMint pumps completed her look.

Just as I was beginning to get the allure of Rachel Bilson, she wears a look of head-to-toe designers she’s worn several times before.

She appears to wear Vanessa Bruno for every occasion, whether it be events or running errands.

I hope she starts to mix things up again.

Rachel Bilson In Chanel – Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner

Rachel Bilson was of course at the Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner on Saturday evening with fellow Chanel ‘Les Fidèles’, Diane Kruger.

She opted to wear a Chanel Spring 2012 silver dress with metallic floral appliqués round the neckline and along the hem.

The actress teamed her feminine frock with a black suede biker jacket for a slightly edgy look that not many aside from Leigh Lezark, Alexa Chung and Leigh Lezark can pull off in Chanel.

A black sequined Chanel bag, metallic silver Brian Atwood ‘Martina’ ankle strap peep-toes and purposely messy waves completed her look.

Do you like this, or is Rachel trying too hard?

Rachel Bilson In Chanel – 2012 Art Of Elysium Heaven Gala

After meeting Rachel Bilson at the 2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in LA last night, I totally get why everyone fusses over her as she’s so cute, engaging, polite and funny.

The actress looked adorable on the red carpet wearing a Chanel Spring 2012 dress.

She looked like Tinker Bell in her embroidered dress with feathers and an additional tulle detail on the skirt to give it more structure.

Even with 5in Casadei satin pumps the star was still uber tiny.

A white Chanel clutch and a side parted faux bob completed her look.

Who Wore Vanessa Bruno Better? Rachel Bilson or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rachel Bilson was the first to wear this Vanessa Bruno jacquard metallic jacket when she celebrated her NYLON November cover at a swanky party held at Sherbourne in LA mid November.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress wore a black The Row Sabeen T-shirt and GoldSign Jenny high rise slim leg jeans with her jacket.

A black hat, a tan oversized Miu Miu clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ heels completed her look.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore the same jacket late last month whilst grabbing a bite to eat from In-N-Out Burger with boyf Jason Statham.

She opted for lighter-coloured MiH denim jeans and a cream top.

A mini Celine bag and tan booties completed her look.

Rachel was no doubt styled to the very last detail. I wish that detail didn’t include the clutch.

Rosie’s just-thrown-on look is much more appealing so she wins for me.

Who Wore Preen Better? Rachel Bilson or Ashlee Simpson

Rachel Bilson was spotted leaving the NBC studios back in October wearing a Preen kimono-collar crepe dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress teamed her sleeveless dress with a Chanel bag and ShoeMint pumps, which she designed.

A simple ponytail and red lips completed her look.

Ashlee Simpson was spotted wearing the same dress earlier this month whilst out with her son and pregnant sister Jessica in New York City.

The singer styled her dress with black open-toe ankle boots and a black wool coat.

Her street-style look was complete with a perfect pink glossy pout.

I’m going to go with Ashlee on this one. I much prefer her makeup to Rachel’s.

Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.
