In or Out: Rachel Bilson in Chanel
Take a good look at that runway shot. There’s a reason that model is styled to within an inch of her life. It’s because someone somewhere figured out that this was a crap dress on its own and not even a world-class model can make it work without some major hair, makeup, and accessory help. On poor little Rachel, who is a mere pretty actress without access to Paris’ best beauty artisans, this thing looks like a sad, shapeless, old sack. Like the dress Molly Ringwald made for the prom in Pretty in Pink, which we were all supposed to pretend made her look breathtakingly beautiful instead of like she was wearing a pink shopping bag.
Anyway, whoever styled her (possibly Uncle Karl himself, continuing his odd fascination with generic American actresses) probably figured she was damn lucky to be sporting a Chanel dress on her back and put no real thought into the accessories. Not that they could have saved the look. She’s shapeless and wrinkled and she looks like she knows it.
IN! It’s Chanel, you idiots! She looks classic and beautiful!
OUT! Even Duckie would have ditched her at the prom if she showed up in this!
