STYLE MAVEN: R. BILSON

Rachel Bilson is one of the few celebrities whose looks I always cut out of magazines. She has made quite a few appearances on my inspiration board.

Apparently I was not the only one who noticed her as more of a style maven than an actress- InStyle has given her a monthly spread to answers readers’ style questions and Sunglasses Hut has hired her as their official Style Director.

This look from NY Fashion Week was perfect.

Her blush Vanessa Bruno floral print blouse has feminine details, like a draped panel at the neck, that help balance her edgier leather shorts. The VB version sold out in seconds after she wore it, so I suggest this Chelsea Flower twist-front silk top. It has made several red carpet appearances and it can also be worn tucked in to a high-waisted mini or pants.

The finishing touch on this outfit, her Maison Martin Margiela booties, stold the show and made this look Fashion Week worthy (and made her ankles look tiny!).
