Have you ever wanted to know what Rachel is like in person? I was right next to her last night!
Last night I was able to fulfill one of my former teen dreams — be in the same room as Rachel Bilson! I grew up watching and re-watching the Fox teen drama the The O.C. so you can only imagine what it was like for me to be standing right next to “Summer Roberts” last night! I was invited to preview Ann Taylor’s fall 2010 collection at the Ace Hotel in NYC Mar. 25 and after perusing the gorgeous clothes and jewelry while sipping champagne I figured the night was over — but I was wrong. Just as I walked out of the Ace Hotel a black Escalade pulled up and out popped a tiny gorgeous brunette wearing black fringe shorts, with her hair pulled back into a loose ponytail … it was Rachel! Of couse I went back in and looked on as my teen idol looked at the collection and even stopped to gush over an incredibly cute puppy named Gustav! Also at the cocktail party was Mad Men star Christina Hendricks with her hubby Geoffrey Arend, who stopped to chat with Ms. Bilson.
Last night was definitely one for the memory books!
