Rachel Bilson loves experimenting with her look.

The stunning actress says she doesn't rely on the help of a stylist when she goes to red-carpet events as she puts her outfits together herself and doesn't always stick to the rules.

She said: "I really dress myself. I've been known to put a necklace in my hair. That's what getting dressed should be. It's about fun and experimenting. I think you either enjoy it or you don't - and I do."

The beauty was speaking at the Ann Taylor fashion show last week and was impressed with what she saw.

She said: "The shoes and the purses are amazing. You can add them to a plain outfit to add a little pop. That's what's great about Ann Taylor -you can incorporate it into your own wardrobe."

However, Rachel admits she is a hoarder and holds on to her clothes for longer than she should.

The 28-year-old star told People magazine: "I have a problem, in that I hold on to things that I've had since I was 13-years-old . . . So, yes, I probably should get rid of some stuff."
