Rachel Bilson has definitley made an impact in the fashion world. She is the petite lady's beacon of style who often rocks long maxi skirts and dresses. Anyone would assume that the combo wouldn't work together, but this little lady proves that you don't need height to pull off one of those outfits.

Rachel, who played fiesty Summer Roberts in the OC, may only be 5'2" but she knows what works for her body shape and boy, does she work the petite look well. The California starlet knows how to work a classy yet bohemian look.

When it comes to red carpet events, Rachel is never scared to ditch the dress in favour of sleek tailored outfits. She looks just as stunning sporting the tux trend in a patterned blouse as a cute little evening dress. 


Rachel is also a fan of the one shoulder dress. Often keeping to subtle colours, she keeps jewellery simple and allows her outfit to do all the talking.

A staple item in Rachel's wardrobe is the classic denim hotpant. She realises that shorts paired with either tights or bare legs and some chic sandals never go out of style and complement her small frame.

Rachel Bilson and Chanel are a match made in style heaven. The star is often snapped wearing Chanel's simple ensembles and is the perfect poster girl for the brands elegant designs.

The Last Kiss actress proved that she has what it takes to be part of the fashion world when, back in 2007, she turned up to an award show bravely sporting a Chanel dress back to front. The stunner also wrapped a necklace around her wrist to accessorise. This number definitley ticked the uncovential style box and worked suprisingly well.

Since then, it has been hard to find a photo of Ms. Bilson looking anything less than stylish which definitley makers her one to watch for autumn trend setting!
