We're obsessed!

Kate Middleton and Rachel Bilson's beautiful celebrity styles made us do a double take this week! We're telling you why in this week's installment of Friday’s Fashion Obsessions.

We're obsessed!

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge never seems to disappoint me with her outfits. This week was no exception either, and I'm drooling over her glam gray Roksanda Ilincic dress. The style star sported the pretty frock to the UK's Creative Industries Reception in London and paired the look with a chic braided chignon.

So why does the look work so well? That's easy: Kate has to look put together and "royal" for a lot of events she attends, but the 30-year-old always seems to maintain a youthful, fun aspect to her ensembles. This dress is perfectly constructed and the details are super flattering -- not that this skinny minnie needs it, though!

The final verdict? Royally perfect. Just reinforces why Roksanda Ilincic earned herself a silver medal in our Olympic fashion competition this week! Girl knows how to create elegant yet flirty looks that make a woman's figure shine.

Rachel Bilson

Is anyone else sort of obsessed with Rachel Bilson? Ever since her days as Summer on The O.C., I haven't been able to take my eyes off her fashions! She has such a fun vibe that seems quite effortless, to be honest.

This week, the CW star dressed to impress at the CW Summer 2012 Press Tour in LA sporting a nude sleeveless Malene Birger top with a fun black bow, and black Alexander McQueen peplum pants. To top off the ensemble, Rachel threw on a pair of cute off-white ShoeMint pumps.

The final verdict? I love the unexpected peplum pant! We've been seeing this hot trend on everything from shirts to dresses and skirts this summer, but this is a welcome surprise. And what girl doesn't like a top with a bow? Rachel, you look cute and summery and I love it!
