Tabatha's Takeover: Rachel Bilson's Animal Print Is Too Wild

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best — and worst — celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Rachel Bilson, who made a risky move when selecting this long-sleeve pink leopard-print maxi dress for the Art of Elysium gala in L.A.:

It’s okay animal lovers: No real leopards were harmed during the styling of this look. Even jungle animals know better than to drape themselves head-to-toe in this shade of pink.

I’m so confused right now. Did Rachel travel back in time, sneak onto the set of Three’s Company and raid Mrs. Roper’s closet for a gala? This is by no means the type of dress you wear to a gala! Maybe I would like it more if the length was slightly above the knee and the sleeves were capped. Heck, let’s just remove the sleeves altogether and show off more of her petite frame. Reveal a little leg with a sexy strappy heel. Bam! Gorgeous.

What Sofia Vergara Has to Say About J. Lo's Style

Jan/12/2013 at 04:00 PM ET

This Sunday we’ll be busy making our own best-dressed list for the Golden Globes, but recently, we turned the tables and asked celebs to tell us which stars they think are the most fashionable in Hollywood.

We started with Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara and she said that she’s currently style crushing on Jennifer Lopez. Watch the video to find out which other stars made Vergara’s list (one of them might really surprise you!).

While it was Charlize Theron and Eva Mendes whom Vergara named, fashionista Rachel Bilson had very different picks. As you heard in the video, she’s all about the envelope-pushing trendsetters. “Ashley Olsen, I love her style,” Bilson said, adding, “Alexa Chung — very cool. Sienna Miller.”

When Rachel Bilson and stylist Nicole Chavez launched footwear e-tailer ShoeMint last November, they definitely weren’t thinking about how they’d celebrate the site’s first year. But time flies.

The ladies hosted an intimate brunch at Laurel Hardware in West Hollywood over the weekend, celebrating the one-year anniversary of ShoeMint. “We are so proud of everything that we create,” Bilson tells PEOPLE. Friends of the design duo, including Bilson’s Hart of Dixie costar Jaime King, Lauren Conrad, makeup artist Amy Nadine and stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, all gathered on the charming patio of the L.A. hot spot to toast the talents.

So just how do the designers keep their creations fresh month after month? “I find design inspiration in street style, magazines and movies,” explains Bilson. “I love to see how people on the street throw things together. I also appreciate the skill and creativity that goes into the work of professional stylists — like Nicole! We have a constant dialogue about what we see that inspires us and what is missing from our closets.”

Rachel Bilson's Style Crushes: Ashley Olsen, Diane Kruger & Minnie Mouse

Every celebrity has a go-to piece, whether it’s a designer bag, sky-high heels or a favorite pair of jeans. But for years, Rachel Bilson‘s wardrobe staple was something very unexpected: an item inspired by a Disney character.

“There was a period where I only wore my Minnie Mouse dress!” Bilson tells PEOPLE. “I slept in it, practically bathed in it. I would not take this thing off. It was my statement.”

She adds that her fashion fixation on the Disney dress caused a bit of strife between her and her mom. “My poor mother. She wanted a daughter who she could dress and all that, but I never let her,” Bilson jokes. “I was always like ‘No!’ I had to dress myself.”

These days, the Hart of Dixie actress’s style icons are slightly more sophisticated than Minnie. She looks to Ashley Olsen, Alexa Chung, Diane Kruger and Sienna Miller for inspiration. “I like people who have individual style and look effortless,” she explains.
