Rachel Bilson made a spectacular red carpet comeback this week at the premiere of her latest film, The To Do List. Looking every inch the fresh-faced girl-next-door we came to know and love back in the days of The O.C., the 31-year old joined fellow To Do List stars Aubrey Plaza and Scott Parker wearing a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta number.
The To Do List looks like '90s teen heaven, with skorts, awkward encounters with boys and very questionable fashion choices - we can't wait to relive our younger years when it comes out in October. But in the meantime, with summer still in full swing, there's a lot we can learn from Rachel's effortlessly cool style. International film premiere or Saturday night out with the girls, here's our step-by-step guide to looking hot, understated and glam, the Rachel way.
Step 1: The Outfit
We all know by now that blue is THE colour of the summer, and this strikingly cut dress ticks all the boxes. With the perfect hue to set off that sun kissed skin, and intricate floral detail to boot, this has all the right ingredients for a shoe stopping look. Oh, and no great look is complete without a simple pair of black stilettos and a matching clutch...
Step 2: The Make Up
Here, its all about subtlety. Big winged liner is toned down by a pale pink lip and she achieves the perfect dewy tones with carefully highlighted cheekbones.
Step 3: The Hair
Up or down? Why choose - go for both. With a short centre parting, her tousled locks have been swept back, accentuating her pixie-like face and completing a winning outfit. Voila!
