We’ve all been there. It’s the end of summer, you’re standing in front your closet (or wading in a sea of strewn shorts and tank tops) saying to yourself, “I don’t have ANYTHING to wear for fall.” Well, if there was ever a stylish celeb to inspire a full-on wardrobe revolution it’s former O.C.-er and new Hart of Dixie-er, Rachel Bilson. Gracing the cover of the new issue of InStyle Makeover in multicolored Proenza Schouler, she gives inspiring style advice, discusses her new TV role, and even touches upon her love life.
Bilson tells InStyle, “I know this sounds terribly shallow, but I’ve been mapping out my outfits for the next day every day since I was little, even before high school.” Sounds like a pretty good tip to us, especially for those of us snooze button-hitters who tend to rush around in the morning! No doubt Miss B will be rushing around this fall for her new role as Dr. Zoe Hart in The CW’s Hart of Dixie, which follows a young (and stylin’) surgeon’s relocation to remote Alabama after striking out in New York. Bilson says, “She’s a great character. I get to be tough and sassy and sarcastic—all that good stuff. And I deliver a baby!”
Speaking of which, what are the soon-to-be 30-year-old’s thoughts on the subject of bebes in her own personal life? “Having kids and a family is the most important thing,” she reveals. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom.” Hmmm, sounds interesting, especially when Bilson also revealed that her longtime BF Hayden Christensen is still in the picture. (“Yup, we’re together.”) Very interesting indeed! We can’t wait to see how everything unfolds in the actress turned style star’s life. We’re already in total J’ADORE mode over the grown-up T-shirt, pants, flats, and Chanel jacket ensemble she sports in the InStyle Makeover spread, which was styled by former Rachel Zoe assistant Brad Goreski. Bilson pulls off natural, easygoing style like a PRO, which we’re certain is a result of her advice on self-acceptance: “It’s really important to like yourself, even the not-so-pretty things.”
