The return of Hart of Dixie tonight—at 8pm on the CW—reminds us how much we love Rachel Bilson. And not just for her witty turn as the city doctor gone country Zoe Hart on the hit series, but for her savvy sartorial sensibilities, too. Never far from the spotlight, the actress continues to be a reader favorite with her delightful down-to-earth fashion sense. As such, we thought it would be fun to put Bilson to the test for the first installment of our new Fashion Quiz series. The actress sounds off on going Commando, blasting Rihanna, and more!
