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, DKNY 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.
