Rachel Bilson at MOCA LA | InStyle

Rex Features

Front-row favourite Rachel Bilson is starring in a new advert, directed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. We couldn’t get a peek at her outfit – hidden by a full-length white robe – but judging by the tutu-esque silhouette, we feel safe in predicting an on-trend ballet theme…


Filming on location in Paris, the actress wore her hair in a chic ballerina bun, topped by a tiara and feathers, and sported nude tights and ballet flats. A classic smoky eye and nude lip completed the look.

What could it be for? A new scent? Nope – the ultra-chic campaign is for Magnum ice cream! Former InStyle cover girl and The OC star Rachel is following in the footsteps of Oscar-winner Benicio del Toro, who has also shot an advert for the ice cream – directed by X-Men helmer Bryan Singer.


Rachel’s other latest project sees her reunited with The OC creator Josh Schwartz on a new comedy drama Hart of Dixie. Rachel plays an NYC doctor who inherits a medical practice in the Deep South. She also stars alongside fellow fashion fan Kate Bosworth in the upcoming BFF & Baby, out later this year. But we have to say, we're most excited for this ballet-meets-Chanel collaboration.
