Rachel Bilson has launched a million fashion crushes with her unique but subtle sex-bomb style. Â This week in Page Six Magazine, Rachel reveals her love for Coco Chanel and Hayden Christensen – and how she’s making it easy for copycats to steal her look in her new role as a designer.
The 27-year-old former star of “The O.C.” is recognized for her eclectic sense of style, which has also landed her in the crosshairs of the fashion police: “I think it’s cool to be on the worst-dressed list.Â If people aren’t accepting, that’s OK.Â Bring it on, I don’t care!”
Her passion for fashion had led her to unveil a new clothing line, Edie Rose (named after her late grandmother), debuting on DKNY Jeans.Â She admits she can’t sew, and “came with some pictures, a couple pieces of my own clothes and some ideas in my head. It’s simple with one pop of color, which is like me.”Â Rachel credits her style to her mother, Janice, a spiritual adviser. “Vintage is her love, she has a great eye, which I think I’ve inherited from her.”
Up next for Rachel is an abstract film collection of New York City stories due out next February titled Â “New York, I Love You,” in which she co-stars with current boyfriend Hayden Christensen.Â “I’m happy and that’s all that matters. I have someone really great. Someone who can make me laugh – that’s always what comes first. It’s the best to be able to really, like, truly laugh with someone like they’re your best friend, you know?”
She’s also serving as maid of honor at the wedding of “The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz and her girlfriend, Jill.
As far as her ex-costar/ex-boyfriend Adam Brody? “They say don’t date your co-star, but that’s who you’re around.Â If you’re in an office, and you see someone everyday and you click well, you’ll start dating.Â It’s the same thing.”
