Another style we'll never see Bilson in: something too revealing. Although she has played characters who like to show a little skin — like"Dixie's" Zoe Hart, who Bilson says, "wears shorts, a lot" — the actress prefers to be modest, and let her clothes do the talking. "I guess I'm not too crazy about slutty dresses," Bilson, who has her own shoe line called ShoeMint, tells the mag. "You try something on, and if you feel like a slut, you probably look like one." Another trend Bilson is not a fan of? High-waisted skinny jeans! Instead, she opts for neutral colors "with a pop of color" and the right accessories. "You wear a plain T-shirt and jeans and then do something really cool with the jeans or the amazing shoes, or a really cool scarf or belt or bag," she recommends.

But as perfect as she always appears, Bilson has had her share of fashion faux pas — although no one really noticed. When the Lucky writer shows her a photo of one of her recent red carpet looks, a sleek black dress paired with gold bangles, the former "O.C." star reveals, "I was PMSing that day, and I just freaked out and wore [it] backward." She can't always please her boyfriend either. Although Bilson, whose favorite pair of shoes are her Chanel boots, says very little about her on-off, back-on again beau, actor Hayden Christensen, she does reveal she loves his style, but he really hates it when she wears harem pants.
At the end of the interview with Lucky, Bilson headed back to her place to de-clutter her closet with a pal — and of course, slip into something more casual. "I can't wait to get home," she proclaimed, "and get into my Miss Piggy pajamas!"
