Style Journal: Rachel Bilson

Mischa Barton may steal the limelight on the red carpet, but Rachel Bilson is the real darling when it comes to day-to-day style. Personally I think Rachel's got more of a sense of style, but Mischa simply looks gorgeous in almost anything because she's got that whole tall and skinny frame, (not to mention that beautiful face and hair). Anyways, here are some recent Rachel photos:

I really like that green half-length cardigan thingy Rachel's got on top of the white top -it's perfect to liven up an otherwise ordinary outfit.

This purple top has totally got that modern-vintage feel going on. Simple and effortless, which is very different from some celebrities' great layering efforts.

This outfit is so cute and daring. Before you start to criticise, wearing a black mini skirt and black stockings underneath oversized tops is so Kate Moss 2006. Be prepared to see more of it around!

The sweetheart couple who are amazingly (in celeb standards) still together are just sweeter than ever! I'm the type of girl who drools over Rachel's clothes rather than Adam Brody, but hey, if you don't like Rachel's style, you could stare at Adam instead!

I'm not much of a fan for wearing plain splandex as pants, but let's just divert our attention to the tops.The tops are soo adorable and colorful -perfect for summer.

So this is how real life people wear Chanel jackets with jeans (very Daria in Chanel ads.) The key is to wear something casual-looking underneath so you won't look too old or formal.

Rachel shopping with friends in a very pretty dress. It's such a casual, girly dress. Where where where does one get such dresses?

Wearing a black long sleeve top underneath a dress is a very practical trend right now (and you could probably try it again next winter.) The way to wear it is that the dress should be made of silk like Rachel's here. It gives a better contrast.

OK, this is not a very normal-day outfit, but it's stylish in a non-showy way. The lesson here is that when you're wearing a plain color dress (esp if it's neautral-colored,) then carry a bright-colored clutch.

She is lovely. Very real and natural looking. I tend to think Mischa looks like she's trying too hard to look casual sometimes, but maybe that's just me!

I think that she is so effortlessly chic and stylish in a way that Mischa Barton never really is, I think. Rachel Bilson is so cute! I love whenever she wears dresses...I always end up going "where can I find that dress?"

I've always loved Rachel's style more than Mischa. I think Rachel actually has style where as Mischa seems to just be trendy sorta.

i totally agree with ama. i always thought rachel is way more stylish than mischa (sometimes she's a total bore and dresses exactly like the moss & miller duo). rachel is more genuine. i also like the way they've improved her style in the oc too (at first, summer had that cheap california look, now she's totally cool). mischa is beautifull and has a perfect model figure, but rachel is the fashion-savy.

I think mischa is too over-rated, she's pretty but not too interesting looking, i think rachel has a more different sort of look, cute yet beautiful at the same time.

Mischa does seem to try too hard to be different and interesting but Rachel Bilson's style just seems to be her own.

wow! this is exactly why she always looks fresh et gorgeous at the same time. SHE DEFINITELY DOESNT FOLLOW THE TREND!!! I think this is why you wont find her pictures as much as Mischa's in any fashion websites,etc. Rachel dares to combine modern and vintage in a fantastic way.
But I dont think we can compare her style with MIscha's. It's just two different kinds.
I love both Mischa and Rachel's style (in different way)

I think Rachel has a totally original style, she´s not afraid to try different (aparently not matching) pieces in one outfit... and still looks gorgeous, totally cool.

Mischa is just a fashion-rules-follower. She is still attached to the super safe clothes mixtures, and always get the attention just because she´s all tall and skinny, not to mention the always flashing blonde hair.

I agree with Fel, Mischa is too over-rated... Rachel Bilson rocks!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
