Rachel Bilson Loves…Denim Shorts

Whilst some of us can’t wait so swap our jeans for denim shorts when summer arrives. Others shudder at the thought as it evokes images of Britney Spears wearing her denim shorts with a tank top sans bra.

Thankfully we have people like Rachel Bilson to show us the right way to wear denim shorts.

I’ve only felt the need to own one pair of denim shorts – which I only tend to wear on vacation – but Rachel Bilson owns several pairs in different lengths and colour washes.

The key to this look is to keep everything else simple.

Rachel does that as she pairs her shorts with simple tees, plaid shirts and sandals.

Yesterday she added a pair of Lanvin pom pom sandals to add a touch of colour to her look.

Below are a selection of denim jeans at different price points.

Andie Boy shorts £30
Current/Elliott The Boyfriend low-rise denim shorts £155
Citizens of Humanity Gibson denim shorts £235

“Take No Prisoners” Party – Rachel Bilson In Zac Posen

Rachel Bilson hosted the E3 ‘Take No Prisoners Event’ in LA this week in honor of Father’s Day and took her dad as her date.

The star had time to pick out two Zac Posen looks from different seasons to create her winning look.

Her Zac Posen Resort 2010 top is the stand out piece with the striking floral print and cutouts.

I also love her Zac Posen Fall 2010 stone mini skirt with the structural detail.

Brian Atwood ‘Marlo’ pumps complete the look.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Rachel Bilson or Diane Kruger

Rachel Bilson wore the black version of this 3.1 Phillip Lim lace playsuit when she was spotted making her way to a business meeting in LA earlier this month.

She carried a striped cardigan as she paired her look with tights and Rag & Bone Victoria wedge sandals.

Diane Kruger wore the same playsuit in a summery turquoise colour, when she was spotted signing autographs for fans outside Madeo restaurant in LA on Wednesday night.

She carried a purple cardigan and she wore Christian Louboutin Macarena chain link wedges.

Rachel wins for me as I’m not a fan of Diane’s turquoise version.

Yes Rachel’s wearing thick black tights in the summer, but she’s wearing them very well with this matchy matchy look.

Rachel and Diane’s 3.1 Phillip Lim playsuit is available to purchase in a beige and stone colour from Browns Fashion.

“Dinner with a Designer” Celebrating Brian Atwood – Rachel Bilson In Peter Som & Kristen Bell In Stella McCartney

Actress Rachel Bilson and actress Kristen Bell looked fabulous as they attended “Dinner with a Designer” hosted by InStyle and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, celebrating Brian Atwood at Soho House in California this week.

Keeping her hair pretty much the same as always, Rachel opted for a Peter Som Fall 2010 strapless floral dress with a black velvet band and a frill around the waist.

I love the look which she paired with Brian Atwood heels and a woven taupe Ferragamo clutch.

Kristen Bell’s look was more summery despite it being from the Stella McCartney Fall 2010 collection.

She wore a strapless dress with a sequined skirt and an organza layer.

Her look was colour coordinated with Brian Atwood Katie Lee patent-leather sandals.

Both look so good, I don’t know which one I like the best.

2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala Round Up

Here’s a look at the rest of the stars attending the 2010 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala which took place in Cannes tonight.

Go to page 2 to see all the other looks from this event.

Rachel Bilson makes me hit the snooze button even though she’s wearing a beautiful Chanel Couture Fall 2009 navy dress.

The dress is fine, it’s just the drab styling that brings everything down.

Michelle Williams unsurprisingly goes against the grain to wear this adorable Sonia Rykiel Fall 2008 multi coloured pailette mini dress.

This is a perfect example of having your own personal style and making it work for you at any event.

Ferragamo heels and a Chanel clutch complete the look.

This is what Rachel should’ve worn.

Mary J Blige looked breath-taking wearing a stunning Gucci nude pearl micro beaded one-shouldered gown featuring drape down her skirt.

Michelle Rodriguez looks the best she’s ever looked.

I love this fuschia pink dress, it’s stunning on her plus I’m lusting after her matchy matchy pink heels.

2010 Met Costume Institute Gala – Rachel Bilson In Louis Vuitton

Rachel Bilson also wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 dress at the Costume Institute Gala in New York last night.

I love the dress and Rachel looks stunning wearing it, but I would’ve loved to have seen her in a gown.

She wore a short style last year.

The floral belted dress is worn with Jimmy Choo shoes and a black clutch which complement the black straps on her dress.

We’ve screamed for her to sport new hairstyle on the red carpet, we got it but is still fails.

“Waiting for Forever” New York Screening – Rachel Bilson In Preen

Rachel Bilson attended the Gen Art Film Festival screening of her new movie “Waiting for Forever” last night in New York.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a white Preen Fall 2010 bustier dress with a keyhole cut-out and a tiered asymmetrical skirt which wrapped around her dress.

I love the dress, but I much prefer the runway version because of the nude colour plus it’s strapless.

I would like to give Rachel a 10 out of 10 for this look, but as usual she fails to present herself differently to the daily paparazzi shots we see daily on JustJared.

Her hair and make-up are what we’re see everyday. I really hope next time out she does something new and refreshing.

Brian Atwood heels completed her look.
