Add Rachel Bilson to the ever-growing list of celebrity designers. "The O.C." alum launched her new Edie Rose clothing line for DKNY Jeans yesterday at Macy's in Aventura, Florida.
Rachel's 15-piece sportswear collection -- named after her grandma Edith and close family friend Rose -- consists of button-down tops, sweaters, jackets, t-shirts, dresses, and jeans. The color palette is mostly black and white, with a few yellow pieces scattered throughout.

"This is something I have been interested in doing for such a long time," the fashionable 27-year-old actress told the press. "I was just waiting for the perfect opportunity for it to be done right. I want people to see these clothes for what they are, not just another line designed by another celebrity," she continued. "I want the line to be taken seriously."
Even though I'm a little tired of all the celebrity "designers" fashion is currently binging on, I can't help but love everything Rachel Bilson touches (especially her boy toy Hayden Christensen). If I were ever given the opportunity to go shopping with a Hollywood starlet, I'd pick Rachel hands down. Will wearing the clothes she designed be the same thing? Not really, but it does help that the Edie Rose pieces are actually affordable, wearable, and can easily be mixed into any wardrobe. I'm loving the tuxedo jacket and the yellow shift dress.
