Bulgari Presents Matthew Williamson Cocktail Party – Rachel Bilson In Christian Dior

I attended the Bulgari Presents Matthew Williamson Cocktail Party last night as part of Milan Fashion Week.

I was shocked to see Rachel Bilson there.

I’m quite tall, so I towered over the tiny and petite actress.

As much as I complain about Rachel’s reasons for being on the red carpet as she never had anything to promote, I have to admit she did look beautiful at the event.

She wore a black Christian Fall 2010 silk and lace dress.

It was quite a coolish night, so I’ll forgive the blazer, but I wish she’d taken it off just once so we could see more of her dress.

She added Brian Atwood nude suede ‘Marlo’ pumps and a white Chanel quilted clutch to her look.

Front Row @ Roberto Cavalli Spring 2011

Milan Fashion Week was celebrity light, but that all changed today as Taylor Swift, Rachel Bilson, Heidi Klum and Leona Lewis were all front row Roberto Cavalli’s Spring 2011 presentation.

Taylor Swift – who was no doubt shopping many pieces from this collection – was head to toe in Cavalli.

She wore an ivory chiffon blouse paired with a satin tiered mini skirt, patterned tights and grey lace-up boots.

Rachel Bilson added a chic black Willow blazer to her printed Cavalli print mini dress which she teamed with booties.

Heidi Klum would’ve made Cavalli happy by wearing an animal print blouse.  The rest of her look included a black leather jacket and loose fitting pants.

Leona Lewis got lost on her way to her interview at Barclays Bank.

What a way to let us Brits down.  The US and Germany have all been well represented here.

Chanel Soho Boutique Re-Opening – Rachel Bilson In Chanel

Another star who also regularly attends Chanel events is Rachel Bilson.

She helped celebrate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho boutique in New York City last night by wearing a Chanel Fall 2010 dress.

At first I thought her dress had been watered down from the runway, but I believe that runway model is wearing a fringed necklace.

I’m glad Rachel didn’t wear a belt as I much prefer the silhouette without it.

I find myself surprised that I really like this look.

Usually I don’t think much of what Rachel wears, but she gets a thumbs up from me on this occasion even with the ombre hair and Brian Atwood ankle boots.

A black Chanel clutch completes the look.

Vanessa Bruno LA Dinner

Vanessa Bruno is another out-of-town designer, who’s keen to get young Hollywood wearing her clothes.

UK stars like Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Cole know all about Vanessa Bruno, so Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth were formally introduced at a dinner party in LA last night.

Rachel mixed two pieces from Vanessa Bruno’s Spring 2010 collection.

I absolutely love this look from head-to-toe.

Her look included a Vanessa Bruno cape style blazer with a striped top and an orange Vanessa Bruno skirt.

An embellished clutch and tan sandals complete this chic look.

This is the first time in a long time I’ve loved a Rachel Bilson red carpet look.

This is BDOTW worthy for me.

Kate Bosworth enjoys her second night out in a row with a fabulous designer.

The blonde actress wore an orange Vanessa Bruno Spring 2010 spaghetti strap dress which had a high-low hemline.

A matching Vanessa Bruno puff-sleeved asymmetrical blouse worn as a cardigan and matchy Jonathan Kelsey ‘Amy’ pumps complete the look.

I love matchy matchy looks, but even this is too one tone for me.

Rachel showed much more imagination with her look.

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.
