Thursday, July, 29, 2010 Full disclosure: right now we're completely consumed with our summer TV lineup of True Blood, Mad Men, and, as of tonight, Jersey Shore. But just because our minds are preoccupied with our favorite shows and characters¬--yes, we have Snooki and The Situation on the brain¬--that doesn't mean we're shirking our reporting responsibilities. After all, nothing pleases us more than unveiling the coveted answers to all your celeb-style questions, so lets get to it! If you're eyeing Rachel Bilson's wooden shoes or craving Dree Hemingway's gray-on-gray ensemble, you know the drill. Just check out today's edition of What Was She Wearing: Answers!, and we will show you everything you need to emulate these oh-so cute looks (in an affordable way, of course).

Rachel Bilson
If there is one super stylish femme who can rock just about every kind of clog, it's top trendsetter Rachel Bilson. Whether it is a vintage red pair or the See by Chloe Slingback Wedge Clogs ($270) she wore out and about in Beverly Hills earlier this month, one thing is clear: Bilson has mastered this summer staple. We love the way she styled these shoes in a heat-friendly way, pairing the wedge clogs with a flowy vintage LBD. Obviously you know that a petite noir frock is a wardrobe must-have, but if you don't have an excellent daytime option in your wardrobe already, we suggest Kensie's Draped Sleeveless Dress ($88) or Gotha's 3/4 Length Dress ($125) for their lightweight and playful silhouettes. Pair your frock with Jeffrey Campbell's Snick Clogs ($138) and you will be ready for a summery afternoon. Last, but definitely not least, polish off your look with a chic carrier similar to Bilson's Chanel bag. There are plenty of options available, but we love how Kate Spade's Gold Coast Elizabeth Bag ($365) is an almost exact replica!

Peaches Geldof
We are always looking out for Peaches Geldof's next great fashion move, so it was exciting to see our inboxes fill up with questions about her latest cool-girl look. Snapped departing from the Heathrow Airport earlier this month, the Nylon columnist looked absolutely adorable wearing Topshop's Leopard Bow Tier T-Shirt Dress ($90) under a black American Apparel Unisex Solid Rib Oversized Pocket Cardigan ($42). You especially liked how her precious red hairbows and vintage sunglasses gave the otherwise sober color palette a fresh pop of color. For a similarly sweet pairing, combine Cooperative's Sunday School Dress ($58) and Ray-Ban's Keyhole Wayfarer Sunglasses ($120). While Geldof completed her look with a Temperley London Pyramid Shoulder Bag ($438) with silver and gold embellishments and Office brogues, Dune Adela's Two Tone Lace Up Man Shoes ($110) and Linea Pelle's Perry Stud Messenger Bag ($325) are superb options as well!

Dree Hemingway
It looks like we all have a little obsession with Dree Hemingway these days (ok, so maybe it's a big obsession!), but you, dear readers, are not afraid to show it. According to your emails, in addition to appreciating her extreme beauty, you really enjoy the her down-to-earth style, which is a lovely mixture of Parisian chic and California casual. Hemingway's fashionable sensibilities were on display last month when she attended the Cinema Society and Piaget screening of Twilight Saga: Eclipse in a chic monochromatic ensemble. The model wore an American Apparel Tri-Blend Short Sleeve Track T ($20) tucked into a similarly ash-colored wrap skirt. Fun fact: Hemingway designed this skirt when she was bored one day (with a creation like that, maybe she should be bored more often). She rounded out her outfit with Christian Louboutin's New Simple Pumps ($735) and an oversized black Balenciaga bag. It's not difficult to emulate Hemingway's all-gray look, just pick up her exact American Apparel tee, Ella Moss' Monaco Wrap Skirt ($90), and Steve Madden's Caryssa Pumps ($90), and you are well on your way. Just don't forget to grab Fossil's Vintage Re-Issue Satchel ($178) to reiterate Hemingway's subtle black accent.

Jessica Szohr
Gossip Girl's costume designer Eric Daman just might be a genius. From Blair Waldorf's polished, high society look to Vanessa Abrams' earthy-meets-downtown sensibilities, the man knows how to create darling outfits. Regarding the latter, we spotted Jessica Szohr¬--aka Vanessa Abrams¬--filming the show in a combination of this season's must-have trends. A brightly colored printed dress? Check! A little bit of denim? Check! Wooden shoes? Check! Zohr's Nanette Lepore Wild West Dress ($278) gives her whole look a burst of energy, so look to Firetrap's Printed Oversize T-Shirt Dress ($76) for a similar tribal-print dress with a slightly lower price point. She toughened up her sweet frock by adding True Religion's Leah Denim Vest ($185), but we also like J. Crew's Denim Vest ($88) for a more wallet-friendly alternative. However, it is Zohr/Abrams' choice of Stuart Weitzman Peep Toe Clogs ($170) that makes this outfit a hit for you. Of course, no Vanessa Abrams look would be complete without a bohemian touch like the JJ Winters Studded Multi-Fringe Hobo Bag ($473). If you're looking for more ways to incorporate some boho-chic accents into your ensemble, check out Free People's Austin Fringed Bag ($298) or Zuba Africa's Neutral Bead Necklace Set ($198), which was handcrafted by artisans in Rwanda.¬--Jessica Baker
