Rachel Bilson, who skyrocketed to fame thanks to her adorable portrayal of Summer Roberts in the memorable television show The O.C., is one of the few actors who managed to escape a career death when the show ended. Although she is far from being called a true-blue movie star, Bilson does have several films under her belt, including Jumper, Waiting for Forever, and New York, I Love You. While Rachel Bilson still has a lot to prove in the box office, the diminutive star can sleep easy when it comes to fashion.
Similar to how the public may never be able to get over her character on The O.C., Bilson has never let go of her affinity for bohemian and vintage garments. Often noted by many media outlets as an expert in pulling out a knockout look, Bilson was always the picture of effortless style for the edginess she brings even in a basic tank top and denim jeans. Throughout the years she was with The O.C., the actress’ sense of style always leaned towards casual-chic. She was never afraid of wearing jeans on the red carpet. In fact, it was what separated her from the pack. It wasn’t long however, until the actress evolved into an enviable class act, trading her boho skirts and blue jeans for feminine minis and edgy shift dresses.
These days, Bilson continues to wow on the red carpet, opting for sophisticated frocks that work with her petite frame and striking personality. Although her love for pants still sprouts occasionally, there’s no question that Bilson is one of the most stylish celebrities today. Judging by her recent red carpet appearance, where she bannered class and edge in another blouse-and-pant look, it seems like there is no end to Bilson’s stunning personal style.
