Rachel Bilson: Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid Dress Designer

09/22/2008 at 10:19 AM ET


Having Rachel Bilson as your maid of honor comes with some very fashionable perks. The fashionista joined forces with long-time friend and designer Brian Reyes to create four one-of-a-kind silk georgette and chiffon bridesmaid gowns in a soft range of greens for the wedding of her best friend Jill Stonerick to O.C. and Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz. Rachel, who just launched her first line Edie Rose with DKNY Jeans, has been wearing Brian Reyes both on and off the red carpet since he launched his ready-to-wear label in 2004. We think the delicate dresses were perfect for the outdoor ceremony — when do we get to buy one of these for ourselves? Tell us: What do you think of Rachel and Brian Reyes spin on bridesmaid dresses?

Love the dress…it looks great on her. The only thing missing, a nice hair do. She should have wore it up or did something to it.

The dresses are beautiful, but Rachel should have done something special with her hair. She looks like she just wash it and let it hang loose. It’t a shame !!!

LOVE the dresses!!! Brian Reyes is so amazing! The different shades of green are a great combo…beautiful

Julia on

Did anyone stop to think that maybe the bride wanted her hair that way?

Brian Reyes is such a talented designer. I absolutely love the bridesmaid dresses- simple, classy, and feminine…just perfect for the occasion. His new collection is fabulous- you should check it out on style.com

She looks beautiful, very natural. All of the dresses are gorgeous. Love Bilson!

Wedding updo’s would’ve only ruined these beautiful dresses. Each girl looks amazing!

Very nice. I love the different colors of green. Since it was an outdoor wedding, I think they were trying to keep the hair causual by wearing it down. I would have went with one of those messy updos. But that’s just me. Love the dresses tho

Sarah on

Love the bridesmaid dresses, but not a fan of the wedding dress. Maybe they should’ve helped the bride a little more.

Brian Reyes-what beauuutiful bridesmaid dresses! Such a natural, gorgeous look!

I honestly don’t see anything out of this world. I’m a Rachel fan so I’m kind of disappointed. I would think she would have done something very “unique” to give bridesmaids dresses a “Rachel-knid-of-twist”. They look like anything that all the other nice but plain dress designers do.

While I really like the dresses and the shades of green, it looks like a mish-mash. I think it would’ve looked better to either have all the different dresses in just one shade or have all the dresses the same but in the different shades. It would’ve pulled it altogether instead of looking like the bridesmaids just grabbed something they already had in their closets. That’s just me though. I’m a matchy-matchy type of girl.

I would totally wear those dresses they are completely gourgeous!!!! I wish I could have them for my weddding! Do you know wear we could find look alikes of that dress?

Abby on

Who makes the wedding dress???

lily on

Please, every half ass somebody is now a designer…

Erin on

Love the dresses! They are simple but elegant!! I agree with the hair comments about Rachel, but then again it is a very casual look, which goes well with an outdoor wedding.

About the wedding dress, Sarah, I’m sure it looked beautiful in person! She (the bride) probably looked amazing!

Overall, I LOVE Rachel and Brian Reyes working together!!

The only thing missing are some TARA pearl earrings like the ones Blake Lively will be wearing next week on Gossip Girl 9/29! see http://www.tarasons.com and click on the Vintage Collection to see which ones!
