Rachel Bilson in electric blue at The To Do List premiere: cute or bizarre?

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.

Bill Hader and Maggie Carey. Cute couple!

    Rachel looks so cute! Love this dress on her, it’s amazing that this style is not eating her up. Also, Zoe & George 4EVA :-P

    I’m sort of surprised that I love this dress, but I do. She looks adorable.

    Aubrey’s dress is either terribly designed or terribly ill-fitting. Really weird, inverted bra thing going on.

    This looks like a cute summer chick movie. Silly and predictable. I’m with Celebitchy, I’ll definitely watch this on DVD for nostalgic reason. I also like a lot of the cast, so expect to laugh a fair amount. Audrey Plaza is pretty hilarious.

    • Louminary says:

      yep, I agree. Ever see “Safety Not Guaranteed”? Wonderfully weird, cute movie she is in.

    Watching this will probably not to high on my “To-Do” list, but that popsicle bit int he clip is really funny.

    And then Clark Gregg popped up at the end – man, there is a lot I will do to get my Clark Gregg fix.

    I honestly (when glancing passed the preview pic for the story) thought it was Selena Gomez xD I think it’s the super exaggerated ‘cat eye’ thing Selena has been doing lately (& their hair & skin tones are close).

    I also agree, the nostalgia will get to me too. *sigh* Where did the time go…?

    • Eve says:

      that’s a huge compliment for Rachel considering she’s over 30 and still looks like in her O.C. days. Lovely and stylish girl, remains gracefully present though I haven’t seen she’s done much after that failure that was Jumper?

    I love the blue Oscar. I think it looks adorable on her.

    I’ll tell you what they didn’t get right – the eyebrows. Remember how thin eyebrows uesd to be? Seriously, look at some 90′s – early 00′s pics. Terrible eyebrows!!
