Rachel Bilson

Here is petite cutie Rachel Bilson of The OC fame. Many of you mentioned her, and she does indeed have very short legs, almost dwarfish like Jessica Simpson.
I think Rachel may not be aware of her proportions, as she primarily wears skinny jeans, or cropped trousers that are unflattering for her body type. One reader wrote "I would also hazard to say that Rachel as a worse torso to legs ratio than Keira. In addition, Rachel is supposedly very trendy, but I often think her fashion choices make her proportions look worse." When she wears dresses she looks absolutely darling, however notice her jeans and trousers in the last photo's, they do certainly draw attention to her short legs.

  1. goodness, you're right! never noticed! i do think she often wears scarves to draw attention upwards and distract us from the below bit.

  3. Could you sometime provide advice on swimsuits? I was thinking about it with summer coming. I looked at the photos of Trinny Woodall and the teeny tiny string bikini she was wearing, and the one with Claire Danes in the red strapless bikini top and small bikini bottom. And I thought it only emphasizes their long torso. Is it hopeless for women with shorter legs? Maybe a different bikini cut, or a tankini, a swim skirt, one piece, or a monokini is better? Let us know.

  4. I was thinking that a higher cut bikini bottom or bigger bikini top might help shorten the visual distance between the 2 parts of the bikini, and help make the torso look shorter. It was something I also thought looking at the bikini photos of Christina Ricci. If only her bikini bottom had a slightly higher rise (not much). I know Christina wants to look sexy and wear a trendy swim suit not a granny one ;). What do you think?

  5. Not sure about the bottoms, although it would makes sense. Certainly wearing a bandeau top or something that cuts the torso like that helps me...

  6. Thanks for the comments folks, and the additional photos. This first one is especially good.

    You are right I should gather up some bathing suit advice, it is indeed quite important now that summer is on the way.

  7. I think she is only slightly disproportionate, as she is very tiny anyway, so she doesn't have a long torso. In some of the pics her legs do look noticably short, but I actually think her legs look quite long in the pic with the cropped jeans and red shoes. If I only saw that photo I would think she was quite tall and leggy.
