Style Bites: Rachel Bilson designs for Donna Karan & more

WWD reports that former "O.C." darling Rachel Bilson will take a hand at designing for label, DKNY35648174 Jeans. The junior sportswear line will be called Edie Rose for DKNY and while Bilson admits that she can't stitch or draw, the Rage expects interesting looks from this collaboration. Bilson consistently chooses up and coming designers and takes risks on the red carpet. Thumbs up.

Avril Lavigne will design a collection for Kohl's. Expect skimpy plaid ska mini skirts and lots of black tee shirts. Maybe a tweed vest too. Not as excited.

Nicole Richie may be designing a maternity line, sources say. That makes perfect sense because everyone in this town seems to be Preggy Guggenheim. Not sure what to anticipate--as Richie was, like, a size 2 while carrying--but it is a savvy move. A sixties-inspired maternity wear collection would rock. The Rage would even get knocked up to wear it.

fashion is a joke when someone who can't sketch and can't sew can now be a "designer." Hey, I can stand around and tell someone to add a bow to a plain shirt--does that make me a designer?

it's the same mentality that's killing the music industry--people who can't sing and can't write songs are "pop stars."

whatever. Take the money, Rachel, and then wear your self-designed crap all over the place so it can get a breathless mention in InStyle.

Nicole Richie’s maternity range may have potential but in the meantime there are already maternity wear designers creating beautiful sophisticated maternity wear. Celeb favourite, Homemummy has lots to offer if you are looking to create the perfect look whilst pregnant.
