Rachel Bilson Pregnant Is Just As Adorable As You’d Expect
Even though Rachel Bilson is in her thirties, there's just something undeniably adorable about her. Obviously when we heard she was pregnant, we were so giddy just imagining how cute her little one would be that we completely overlooked what pregnancy would do for Rachel. Well, shocker--it looks great on her! Take a look at Rachel's adorable baby bump: And it looks Rachel is already in full mom mode, shopping for her little one at Bel Bambino in Cali. We can't wait to see what cuteness she dresses her baby in. Don't miss Stacy Keibler's impressive maternity style, 30% off dresses at French Connection and Sophia Webster Mini. [Photo: Splash News]
Surprise! Rachel Bilson Is Pregnant With Hayden Christensen’s Baby
In surprising celebrity baby news that no one saw coming, Hart of Dixie actress Rachel Bilson announced she's expecting a baby with her on-again, off-again boyfriend/fiancee Hayden Christensen. Now if you'e over the age of 25 or so, this actually isn't all that surprising. Rachel, of OC fame, starting dating Hayden in 2007 and the next year they were engaged. They broke up in 2010, but then a few months later they were dating again. And now, four years later, they're having a baby. Of course, all we really care about is Rachel's maternity style. She's already a style star for making just about everything work on her petite frame, so we can't wait to see what she wears over that baby bump. Congrats to the parents-to-be!

Rachel Bilson Looks Really Freakin’ Cute In This Star Print Isabel Marant Sundress
We've always had a style crush on Rachel Bilson, so it's really no surprise we're obsessed with this Isabel Marant Etoile Stars Printed Silk Crepe Dress ($505) she wore recently. The print is subtle, yet also patriotic making it a perfect choice for a 4th of July celebration. We also love the lightweight one-shoulder styling, which is perfect for hot summer days. To complete her look, Rachel carried the Chloe Elsie Small ($1,495). Sure it's a splurge, but that's the price you pay for a perfect black handbag. Shop Rachel's dress and bag below.

Need Another Reason To Obsess Over Isabel Marant? See Rachel Bilson’s Dress
I don't know about you, but I love that Rachel Bilson has reunited with her Jumper costar, Hayden Christensen (did you see Life as a House? Watch it. Now.) They were spotted on a romantic Caribbean vacation looking oh-so-adorable even in the extreme heat and sticky sand. So just how does Ms. Bilson always manage to look adorable, even under sweltering conditions? Easy. A lightweight, printed dress by none other than Isabel Marant. Rachel wore the Daryl Dress ($505) and we can't help but wonder, who does celeb style better than Isabel Marant? Answer: No one.

Case in point: the Piperlime guest editor celebrated a company sip-and-shop event by wearing a sweater, pants, jacket, necklace and blazer that can all be found on the etailer (thanks, InStyle, for spotting the look). And this isn't the first time she's worn her own Piperlime picks before.

The Current/Elliott The Star Stiletto Jeans ($218) have been seen on such celebrities as Khloe Kardashian, Jessica Alba (are you surprised?), and Rachel Bilson.

Attention, Busy Girls: Four Online Subscriptions You Need To Sign Up For ASAP
If the phrase "crazy-busy" seems to be your all-time mantra, you're probably too overloaded to spend time shopping for the new work clothes you so desperately need, not to mention updating your handbag or replacing your eyeliner. Let us introduce you to something life-changing: the brave new world of online subscriptions. Just like getting a maid service and ordering Fresh Direct can change your life, being able to pre-order fashion & beauty stuff to arrive at your door at the same time each month is the next best thing. Forget magazine subscriptions--it's just another thing you don't have time to read. Here are our top 4 online subscription sites you need to know about now: 1. Birchbox For those of us who have been living under a rock, Birchbox is a beauty-subscription services for the every-girl. For $10/month (or $20 if you're a dude), subscribers get a gorgeously packaged box full of select beauty goods, from nail polish, to lotions, to fragrances and make-up. The best part? The boxes are often curated by celebs, and stuffed to the brim with hand-selected products and advice on how to use them. If you find something you love, you can order the full size on the website. 2. Little Black Bag Little Black Bag is a perfect choice for the adventurous. At sign-up time, you take a test to determine your beauty style. Then, you're presented with purses, jewelry and accessories from brands such as BCBG, Kenneth Cole, and Steve Madden. Select one goodie, marked down from prices up to $200, for $49.95. When it arrives in your mailbox, it's been packaged with two other accessories, selected by Little Black Bag stylists. Don't like what you got? No problem--exchange with other Little Black Bag users online. LBB is a super-fun way to spice up your wardrobe with items you may never have chosen yourself. 3. StyleMint We were sold on StyleMint as soon as we learned the collection was designed by none other than Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, but for those of you who need a little more convincing: Style-Mint curates an e-closet of T-shirts for users based on a personal style quiz. Every month, you get an email with T-shirts selected for you. Think they're cute? Buy as many as you'd like, for only $29.99 each. Want to pass this month? Just opt to skip the month and you won't get charged a penny. The best part? With every shirt you buy, you get credits, which can be converted to freebies after a few months--and the shirts are soft, stretchy, and absolutely perfect--but we wouldn't expect anything less from MK&A. 4. ShoeMint Essentially StyleMint's clone in a shoe version-- except with ShoeMint, your personal shopper is Rachel Bilson. Bilson's easygoing and trendy style is reflected in each pair of flats, heels, and booties in this collection, priced at $79.98 per pair--up to 80% off retail value! V. JewelMint Rounding up the Mint trifecta is JewelMint. Designed by Kate Bosworth and her stylist, Cher Coulter, the Jewelmint collection ranges from boho-chic, to classic, to super-edgy pieces. Rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings are $29.99 each, and you can load up on as many as you'd like monthly. One caveat--these go super fast, so order away, chicas.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Bilson And Alexa Chung Are Obsessed With Clogs. Can You Blame Them?

Eva Longoria And Gwen Stefani Look Pregnant In Oversize Clothes
When petite stars Gwen Stefani, Eva Longoria and Rachel Bilson were photographed in these baggy, oversize outfits - we had to do a double take. They look more like homely, bag ladies than slim style icons. What they did wrong: If they wanted to try the oversize trend, they should have gone with either a baggy top or bottom - not both. In head-to-toe baggy attire they look like they're hiding something. A baby bump perhaps? Also, horizontal stripes can be unflattering, so if you must wear them (a la the nautical trend) pair them with a fitted jean - not a gaucho pant or cropped wide leg like Bilson. What they should have done: To avoid causing the pregnancy or weight gain rumors, they should have paired the oversize pieces with fitted, tailored ones, like in these three looks: If you want to try the trend at home, go with a v-neck or scoop neck version like this sexy Monrow Oversized Tee ($72). The relaxed fit is flattering - especially in black. Balance the oversize tee with a pair of skinny pants like these celebrity-favorites. The J Brand 'Houlihan' Skinny Stretch Cotton Cargo ($231) are the season's most popular pant, and go great with the baggy black top. If you want to try the loose-fitting trend in a pants version, pair it with a fitting top like this versatile Kain Label Pocket Tank in Many Colors ($80). The gray pocket tee is on-trend and very hip. Wide leg trousers are a great way to wear the oversize trend while still looking incredibly polished. You will love these flattering Alice + Olivia Eric Pants ($254) - the white is a great base for summer outfits, and the trouser style will make you look like a Hamptons-goer (even if you aren't). Large horizontal stripes can be unflattering - but thin stripes are totally cute. If you're craving a striped, oversize tee, go for this Just Female Oversize Stripe Tee ($42.27, down from $84.55). You will love the pocket on this comfy style. Rather than pairing a striped tee with rolled up baggy pants like Bilson, pair it with black treggings for a more polished, yet still comfortable look. You will love these Silence & Noise Black Crinkle Jegging ($54).

Rachel Bilson Converts From Actress To Sunglasses Expert
Rachel Bilson might not be everyone's favorite actress, but she can sure pick out a great outfit--and of course, sunglasses. The young starlet has just been announced as Sunglass Hut's new Style Director and she's making sure Ray-Bans are on everybody's face. Look how great they look, even with a ball gown, as Bilson poses for InStyle, above. Today, in her first blog post for Sunglass Hut, she writes, "Think Tom Cruise in Risky Business sliding across the floor in socks, jocks and you guessed it, Wayfarers ($119). They’re back and they’re totally my staple." We can see why. Bilson is celebrating her new position by pulling her favorite sunglasses, like the Ray-Ban 'Original Aviator' ($139), into her own Sunglass Hut collection for us to shop. She's also been interviewing popular designers, such as Tory Burch, to find out the newest sunglasses trends and inspirations for the upcoming season. We look forward to see what her favorites are. Maybe she can include some fun aviators like the AJ Morgan Fez Sunglasses ($19.95, down from $28). Check out our guides to the best sunglasses, the best celebrity style sunglasses, and the best swim cover ups.
First Look: Four Genius Style Tips From Ann Taylor’s Roaring ’20s Party
The crowd at Ann Taylor's fall 2010 collection was surprisingly really cool, and so were the clothes. Once upon a time, Ann Taylor was my mother's go-to store for work wardrobe essentials, but the brand definitely went up a few notches on the cool scale with their twenties-inspired collection for fall. It-girl Rachel Bilson even made an appearance, and while I haven't seen any paparazzi pics of the starlet shopping at Ann Taylor, her outfit alone is proof that you must get thee to your nearest store. The collection won't be in stores until this fall, but check out four styling tips we took away from the presentation that you can use now: 1. Buy some fringe. Rachel Bilson (left) wore the cutest pair of fringed black shorts, and the Nanette Lepore Festive Light Miniskirt below ($149, down from $298) is a great piece to introduce the twenties trend into your wardrobe. 2. Pair an anorak with your work outfit. I loved the idea of pairing a anorak with a pencil skirt for work, and this Kenneth Cole New York 'City' Anorak ($98) (below) is a nice alternative to a trench coat for spring. 3. Add a touch of leopard to your neutral outfits. The presentation was full of splashes of leopard, and it made the outfits look hip. These Calvin Klein Women's Lexa II Ballet Flats ($93.05) will pop with any outfit. 4. Wear your ornate rhinestone jewels for day or night. As soon as I walked into the presentation, I was almost blinded by the amounts of rhinestone accessories, and they looked really cool with the everyday pieces. Wearing this Rachel Leigh Zelda Waltz Layering Necklace ($132) is a nice way to get in on the trend.

Would You Rather Celeb Edition: Rachel Bilson vs. Rihanna In Current Elliot Jeans
Both Rachel Bilson and Rihanna chose the same pair of Current Elliot Zipper legging jeans, and each wore it completely differently--they're almost beyond recognition. Whose outfit do you like better? First, start with the jeans: Current Elliot Zipper Legging Jeans ($220) clearly can be worn tons of ways, and the zipper makes them stand out from a crowd, even if you're dressed down like Rachel Bilson. If you like the Rachel: Start with a dusty rose Tophop scarf ($32), add these cute All Black quilted flats ($73.49, down from $94.95) and top it off with a beautiful Mango Fringe bag ($109). If you're more of a Rihanna fan, try out these edgy accessories: Sunglasses are key: get these checkered Von Zipper Rockfort sunglasses ($64) to really get the Rihanna vibe. Then slip on a sexy pair of booties like these by Pour la Victoire ($178) and a cool pair of Rachel Leigh pyramid fringe earrings ($66).

Project Runway: Surf’s Up, Or Down, If You’re Mitchell
When the show moved to LA for Lifetime, the only real, noticeable difference was the swap of New York's steel backdrop for golden California scenery. So, it was only a matter of time before Project Runway took advantage of the left coast's legendary beach culture. Witness: episode 3's surfwear challenge. Designers had to work in pairs to design a "fun and fashionable surfwear look," with one team member acting as the team leader. Even before Tim threw in the prerequisite Surprise! element--an avant garde outfit in addition to the first look--at least half of the design teams were on the rocks. One of the strongest teams was Johnny and Irina, who put together a beaded racerback tank with a light sweater and flowing skirt that guest judge and former OC star Rachel Bilson said she'd wear in a heartbeat. But it was the unlikely team of Mitchell and Ra'mon who wowed hard-to-impress Nina Garcia with their ocean-inspired dress and lime neoprene avant garde dress. The problem for Mitchell, though, was that he let Ra'mon do all the work. Gotcha! So, he battled it out with Qristyl and Epperson, who fought constantly for control. Q. threw E. under the proverbial bus when it came time to judge their palm-frond dress (above), but Mitchell got the three-strikes penalty from Heidi. Straight from the mouths of surfer girls to designers' ears, California style is inspired by comfort and colors of the beach. Like Johnny and Irina's fave beaded tank, the Madison Marcus "Cascade" Beaded Ivory Top ($238) is delicate and functional at the same time. Even better, the classic racerback shows off sunkissed shoulders. Pair with a soft, fluid topper like this cashmere Velvet Electra Sweater ($297), for chilly fall nights. And if you've never tried anything from Velvet, the sheer softness of the clothes lives up to the name. Did we mention the colors? The most successful thing about Ra'mon's avant garde dress was the shocking green. These pretty Sutra Green Onyx Leaf Cluster Earrings ($200), made with sterling silver, yellow gold vermeil and gree onyx, add a little sand-and-sea sparkle to any outfit--without the neoprene. Whether you need more fancy tanks or cardigans, we've got you covered with evening tops for jeans and our guide to the best cardigans out there.
