Rachel Bilson is hands down one of my all-time faves, ever since her days of Summer on The O.C. Last Thursday she attended the CW Network’s 2014 Upfront Presentation at the London Hotel in NYC, looking as charming and effortlessly chic as ever in a Mary Katrantzou dress.
I immediately was drawn to this look because this shade of pink looks fabulous with her dark hair and soft complexion. I also thought, what a fun floral print for summer. Then, wait…oh snap, it is not a floral print at all, but rather an enlarged jewel print set against satin. This uniquely fun print gives so much interest and playfulness to this femininely structured dress, making it all the more flirty while keeping it chic. The above the knee hem and short sleeves partner up to help the dress achieve ultimate perfection on Rachel, while her Bionda Castana heels, with great black and white contrast and fun ankle straps, tie the whole thing together.
While I wouldn’t have love to have seen her makeup changed up just a bit and her hair a little more lustrous, Rachel is definitely up front and center here, as she should be.
