(Rachel Bilson)

If possible, I would wear broken-in jeans and white shirts (tee, button-down, tank, I’m not picky about the style) every single day for the rest of my life. There’s just something crisp, clean and totally easy about this combination. You don’t have to worry about matching anything (everything matches!), you can dress it up or keep it casual (how versatile!), you can just breathe easier knowing how classic you look (unless you spill then everyone will see it!).

I used to wear jeans and white shirts sooften in high school that my friend Sarah laid down the law to force me into wearing color – I’m still not sure why I actually obeyed but whatever. She told me I could only wear jeans and white ONCE every week. I did it but remember it was the hardest thing ever. I’m being completely serious, so you can stop laughing whenever. I think it was just a huge source of comfort for me, and since I was just a teensy * bit self-conscious as an 11th grader, I latched onto whatever source of safety I could get.

My younger sister used to laugh at me (in a nice-ish way) and play the song “White T” by the rap group Dem Franchise Boyz when I would visit wearing my jeans and white t-shirt. Don’t recollect the song? Check it, yo.

As for the photos sprinkled throughout this post? I love when celebrities wear jeans and white because, let’s face it, they look gorgeous most of the time anyways and it’s always better to look at pretty people for fashion advice. Also, they can get away with and afford to wear whatever they want (as demonstrated by Britney Spears and the Olsen twins in the previous post), so how wonderful that they love my favorite outfit, too! Enjoy the photos and consider pulling together a jeans and white shirt look tomorrow when you get dressed. Trust me, you’ll look great.

Look at how happy wearing jeans a button-down white shirt makes Selena Gomez! Yay for such a classy clothes combination!

Oh, Blake Lively, you know you love your outfit. Xoxo.

It’s hard to tell but this is country singer Taylor Swift and MY GOD she looks gorgeous…must be the white and denim.

Huh, well maybe jeans and white shirts won’t make EVERYONE look good. Way to step all over my theory, Amy Winehouse.

 

*‘teensy,’ in this case means ‘majorly, humongous, oh-my-god-people-might-look-at-me-today-why-are-they-looking-at-me-STOP-looking-at-me’

 

UPDATE (10/17) – I just found this photo and LOVE Hayden Panettiere’s outfit…I needed to share with you all for some reason. What do you think?

A slightly different take on the Boy, Boys, Boys post, I have compiled a list of my top 5 favorite female celebrities. Gals that I admire and would gladly trade places with. Girl crushes, if you will.

1. The Golden Girl: Reese Witherspoon

Hands down, all around most fabulous celeb I’d like to trade lives with. Everything she touches turns to gold (well, minus that awful-looking movie Just Like Heaven – yikes – but hey, we’ve all made mistakes). She’s so naturally gorgeous that she even looks amazing running errands (seriously, NOT FAIR). She’s been in great movies – Walk the Line, Cruel Intentions, Sweet Home Alabama (you know you love it). She is the face of Avon, owns her own production company (Type A Films), volunteers all over the world, is one of the highest paid actresses ($15-20 million per flick) in America, has been on People’s ‘100 Most Beautiful’ list 4 times, has 2 adorable kids who will probably grow up to be sane and down to earth people (sorry, Suri, you will not make this list), dates Jake Gyllenhaal, etc, etc, etc.

She might be perfect. And, as this makes me realize how far from perfection I am, sort of hope she snaps and gets photographed attacking an SUV with an umbrella or something.

 

2. The Girl Next Door: Rachel Bilson

Have you ever had a friend who you’re insanely jealous of but you can’t hate because she’s so damn nice all the time? I imagine Rachel is that type of girl. She just seems so natural and so refreshingly normal that it’s borderline irritating. She likes to go for walks with her dog (who’s name is Thurmen Murmen, which I find hilarious), loves watching Jeopardy,and has been quoted saying if she wasn’t an actress she’d be a preschool teacher. UGH. Don’t you just want to go punch her in the face but then apologize and invite her over to drink PBR’s and watch Super Troopers?

 

3. The Girl Who Could Kick Your Ass & Still Look Good: Mariska Hargitay

Christopher Meloni made the Boys, Boys, Boys list; it’s only natural Ms. Olivia Benson from Law and Order: SVU makes the cut too. What can I say? They may just be the perfect pair. The highest paid actress on TV, Mariska is also the founder of The Joyful Heart Foundation (to help victims of sexual abuse). She is probably the coolest woman in the world, and it’s my secret hope that she one day becomes President of the United States, even though playing a detective on NBC probably isn’t the best prerequisite for running a country but whatever.

 

4. The Hottest Girl in the Entire World: Shakira

Literally, I imagine she can melt people. She’s not only amazingly talented (recognized as a superstar the world over) and kind (she’s donated about $45 million to various charities), but she can move her body in ways nobody else can. Don’t believe me? Watch her video for La Tortura and tell me I’m wrong (I triple dog dare you). I’d even go so far as to say I’d consider swinging both ways for her. Yeah, I said it.

 

5. The Alternate: Katie Holmes

Get. Rid. Of. Tom.

Seriously, Katie, what in the world were you thinking?? Just slip some Tylenol PM into his morning protein shake before he impregnates you again, and GET THE HELL OUT. Then maybe you can officially make it on my list.

Oh, and if you happen to rekindle a romance with Joshua Jackson that would really just make my life totally complete. Seriously, not even kidding one little bit, do it NOW.

 

 ***UPDATE (9/25/08): One my closest friends just started her very own blog and has written about her own favorite celebrity girls! Check it out at Five Days Between. Wo ai ni, Connie!
