Rachael Ray: Rachel Bilson Gives Fashion Advice

Oct 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Today’s ‘Rachael Ray Show’ was a special treat which they do from time to time. “We’re going to bring to life some of our favorite magazine columns!” Rachael exclaimed. Liz Vaccariello - Editor in Chief of ‘Every Day With Rachael’ magazine came in to show us five budget lunches. All five of them were under fifteen dollars apiece. Her ‘Spaghetti Salad With Herby Breadcumbs’ recipe will be found at the end of this article.

Rachel Bilson is from CW’s new show ‘Hart of Dixie’, and is also a fashion editor for ‘InStyle’ magazine. She shared the theme of her show in which she plays a doctor who has moved south to a small town in Alabama, where she has a hard time fitting in.

She answered Rachael’s “Big Three” questions with no hesitations. Rachael asked her who is the celebrity she gets mistaken for the most…she said she doesn’t so much get mistaken for a celebrity…she gets mistaken for a 15 year old girl. As far as any moment in her life that she could do over, she answered her fifth grade talent show…she didn’t make it. She explained that she was singing, “I should never do that.” The most groce thing she has ever done, “I snot when I talk,” she laughed. Rachael tried to laugh it off, and called it “charming.”

Rachael Ray used Rachel Bilson’s column from ‘InStyle’ (Ask Rachel) to bring some of the fashions to life. The audience asked Bilson questions, such as which boots will fit with the more petite people. Bilson recommends the tiny “shoe boots” which do not pass the ankle, and are actually shoes. Anywhere between the ankle and mid-calf is okay, but she advises not going any higher if you are petite. Bilson also gave advice on how to wear scarves and even ways to use dishes outside of the kitchen (to place jewelry in on a dresser, for example).
