Many Hollywood fashionistas may rely on stylists like Rachel Zoe to look flawlessly pulled-together for every event–but not Rachel Bilson! “I really dress myself,” the actress told PEOPLE at Ann Taylor’s Fall 2010 fashion show on Thursday night in New York City. Demonstrating her style savvy, the petite beauty wore a giraffe-print sweater and a bejeweled black ribbon draped around her neck–both from Ann Taylor. “I’ve been known to put a necklace in my hair,” quipped Bilson. “That’s what getting dressed should be. It’s about fun and experimenting. I think you either enjoy it or you don’t–and I do.” The couture-loving star also loves a high-low style mix, especially using Ann Taylor’s new pieces: “The shoes and the purses are amazing. You can add them to a plain outfit to add a little pop,” said Bilson, switching into stylist mode. “That’s what’s great about [Ann Taylor]–you can incorporate it into your own wardrobe.” And with such a passion for fashion–not to mention a Hollywood budget–Bilson has amassed quite the closet. “I have a problem, in that I hold on to things that I’ve had since I was 13-years-old . . . So, yes, I probably should get rid of some stuff.” We bet there are plenty of women who would gladly take them off her hands! — reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
