Rachel Bilson is already one of our biggest fashion crushes, and in this week’s Page Six Magazine, their cover girl reveals her own fashion inspirations — and dishes about her real-life loves. Rachel might count Coco Chanel as a favorite style icon, but she says that her own look is also inspired by someone a little closer to home: her mother, Janice. “Vintage is her love,” the actress tells the magazine. “She has a great eye, which I think I inherited from her.” Part of Rachel’s sartorial success is a willingness to take risks and follow her instinct — no matter what others say. “I think it’s cool to be on the worst-dressed list,” she says. “If people aren’t accepting, that’s OK. Bring it on, I don’t care!” With a DKNY design collaboration coming out this fall, Bilson is turning her attention back to acting, including a role in the upcoming film New York, I Love You, which she stars in with boyfriend Hayden Christensen, another of her passions. “I have someone really great,” she says of the Star Wars star. “Someone who can make me laugh — that’s always what comes first. It’s the best to be able to really, like, truly laugh with someone like they’re your best friend, you know?” As for past love, O.C. costar Adam Brody, Bilson says, “They say don’t date your costar, but that’s who you’re around. If you’re in an office, and you see someone everyday and you click well, you’ll start dating. It’s the same thing.” Hear more from Rachel online Monday at pagesixmag.com

I don’t get who decides fashion “worst dressed.” Come on, she’s gorgeous and she wears what she likes. Why be judged for being her own person?

I think she shouldn’t wear anything:)Truth be told, she could just about make anything look good.

Rachel Bilson is beautiful no matter what any ones says. Being unique in fashion and in life is what sets one apart from everybody else. She totally can pull off anything.

Sara on

She only wishes she looked like Leighton Meester, who by the way, dresses a thousand times better than her.

And no! it is not cool to be on the Worst Dressed List. This is not made according to anyone’s standars, is some people’s(people who know clothes) opinion on what FITS someone.
Average. Fitting. Standars.

You should care about what you wear, young lady, because all our clothes are AWFUL!!!

I heard her on a radio station one time. She’s quite the B if you ask me.
