|Rachel Bilson shares style secrets|
Rachel Bilson shared the secrets behind her wardrobe on TV series Hart of Dixie. The Hart of Dixie actress gave a behind-the-scenes peek into her closet for the series.
The petite brunette explained that she trusts the on-set costume designer Meredith Markworth-Pollack not to dress her in anything she can’t pull off.
The American star says there are similar things to consider when dressing for the screen as there are when attending high profile events. Rachel says it is important to get the fit of clothes just right as it can be unflattering to wear things that are too loose or too clingy.

|Hart of Dixie: Wilson Bethel and Rachel Bilson Weigh in on Wade and Zoe’s Shocking [Spoiler]|
If you’ve yet to watch Tuesday’s Hart of Dixie, avert your eyes now. Everyone else, read on…
Hear that? That’s the sound of many a Hart of Dixie fan’s hearts breaking after this week’s installment of the CW charmer, which found Wade reluctantly coming clean to Zoe about his wandering
Wilson Bethel, who portrays the misguided philanderer, couldn’t agree more with his co-star — and being the man behind the wrong-doer makes the twist sting all the worse.
With “Wade entering into a pretty dark zone” in the coming weeks, Bethel reveals that he too will be “entering into a pretty dark zone… But it’s good, too. From an acting perspective, it’s a new shade of the character and it gives me some new territory to explore.” That said, Bethel is going to miss the enjoyment of embodying “the playful guy that everybody likes. It’s not fun being the guy that everyone hates. But at the end of the day, we’re not doing Schindler’s List here, so there’s got to be a lot of light moments to come! Still, it’s going to be a lonely course.”
The after effects of Wade’s indiscretions will also impact other Bluebell denizens, including Cress Williams‘ beloved mayor Lavon.
Not unlike Bethel, Williams recalls that “it felt so weird when we read the script [for this episode] out loud. Wilson took it really hard. There was just a hush at the table read, like ‘Oh man, that’s not good.’ (Mircea Monroe [Tansy], for her part, also took the news badly: “I was crying — we’re all really invested!”)
Putting a slightly more positive spin on the Dixie shakeup, Bilson notes:
And what is next, you ask? For starters, some long-overdue girl time for sometime-frenemies Zoe and Tansy.
As for what’s to become of the broken hearted, Bethel can only muster up a solemn “who knows” for now. “But I think Wade and Zoe made a pretty good run at it,” he adds, “and maybe this will leave room for a continued development down the line.”

|Style according to Rachel Bilson|
The Cocmopolitan’s March cover girl is one of the chicest celebs in Hollywood, and here she lets Cosmo in on all her fash secrets.
Rachel Bilson is a pocket-size goddess of sartorial style – she’s just 1.58m tall – and she rocks a fitted black blazer like no one else in Hollywood. As far as we’re concerned, RB doesn’t put a dainty, size-five foot wrong when it comes to fashion.
Reminiscing about her time as Summer Roberts on The O.C. gave us a serious case of teenage nostalgia, but we’re glad she’s swapped skimpy-cute for understated chic. She always makes our Best Dressed list – and the perfect accessory to her look has to be her laid-back, be-yourself, who-cares attitude. She recently outed herself as a Justin Bieber fan (she blames her little sisters), and her dearest wish in life is to have the rotating closet fromClueless. And wouldn’t it be full of fabulous clothes!
Yep – if she can’t find the right shoes, Rachel whips them up. The Hart of Dixie star has teamed up with celeb stylist Nicole Chavez to release a line of footwear for fashion site ShoeMint. We love that she’s so dedicated to elegance she’ll roll up the sleeves of her tailored silk shirt and get to work!
Her simplest style secret?
Given the star’s comfy-chic style, designer credibility and endearing nonchalance, we’ll be taking that advice straight to the shops. Got to trust the girl – she is tight with fashion royalty Karl Lagerfeld, after all.
Picking the perfect sunnies
“I have a smaller face, so Wayfarers work because they have a small frame. If you want to try big ’60s frames, you kind of need an angular face and a good nose.”
On her street style
“I really just like to throw things together and be comfy. I’m a casual dresser. I enjoy mixing and matching and layering – just throwing things together. So it’ll be a mash-up.”
On her friendship with Karl Lagerfeld
“He’s just so warm and approachable. I want him to come over [to my place] and help me throw out scarves!”
On refusing to dress for men
“I know men hate harem pants, but I don’t give a sh!t.”
On smart casual
“I like that you can rock a shorts suit in autumn – you have a jacket, and you can wear a sweater.”
Her favourite fashion staple
“A classic, perfectly fitted black blazer is important. And I’m a really big accessories person.”
On her best-kept fashion secret
“I know nude shoes really help my child-size legs. You know, it helps in that area – you learn little things like that.”
Rachel’s top style tip
“Wear what makes you happy, and don’t put too much thought into it. You can’t pay attention to criticism, it’s not healthy.”
