I saw Rachel Bilson at the To Do List premiere in this bright blue embroidered Oscar de la Renta and thought “maybe she’s pregnant.” I mean, she doesn’t look pregnant at all, but she looks like she might be trying to hide something under that dress. Then I looked up some of her recent photos, including some airport candids in which she’s sporting a new (temporary) neck tattoo with three stars. She’s been wearing loose clothing and recently talked about having kids with her longterm boyfriend, Hayden Christensen. It’s a working theory, but a weak one. She was just rocking a bikini three months ago and from many angles there’s no suspicion of a bump in this dress. Oh well, I would love to hear some pregnancy news about her.
Other than the full bodice peplum thing this is a cute, flattering dress and it suits her well. She looks adorable, but the cat eye makeup is a little too much. Some thinner eyeliner would have been prettier. I like that Rachel didn’t over accessorize and compete with the dress, but she could have worn some minimal earrings or a bracelet.
The To Do List is out this weekend and stars Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation as an awkward teen trying to lose her virginity, step by step. (You might remember Plaza crashing Will Ferrell’s acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards.) The film is set in the early 90s and it looks goofy and predictable. There’s plenty of recognizable talent in it, including Bill Hader of SNL (his wife, Maggie Carey, wrote and directed this), Donald Glover from Community and Nashville’s Connie Britton.
Aubrey is in Calvin Klein. I’m not a fan of the structured bra thing at the top and think it fits her poorly, but that’s probably how this dress looks on everyone. Her shoes are a little too bridal matchy.
Rachel’s Hart of Dixie costar, Scott Porter, is also in this film. It took me all the way until the end of the trailer to realize who he was. He looks so different! Scott is hot on the small screen, but the newlywed is looking beat here. I think it’s his upswept hair and patchy, one-note beard. As Kaiser says, shave your neck!
Here’s the trailer. It’s all kind of meh to me, but I might see this on DVD just for nostalgia purposes. They got a lot of the fashion and hair right.
