Judgement time is around the corner and Rachel Bilson's pulling out all the stops to make her first venture as a celebrity designer a success. The Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans campaign will feature the star in her own designs.

"Our customer has a real emotional connection with Rachel, and she's always on the best-dressed lists, so it seemed like such a win-win for us. Rachel has real personal style and she is very involved in every step. You can really see that in the collection" said president of DKNY Jeans, Kevin Monogue.

The photo shoot, which was shot in New York by Mikael Jansson, features Bilson and models Fabienne Vanderhaeghen, Regina Feoktistova, and Giedre Dukaskaite against a edgy NYC backdrop. "She was really hands-on with the entire process. She, with the help of stylist Tabitha Simmons, made the clothes come to life in such a youthful, authentic way, which is so true to Rachel's own personal style — always youthful, but appropriate" said the creative director of the shoot, Trey Laird.

The ad campaign will run in the September and October issues of Teen Vogue and Cosmogirl magazines to coincide with the launch of Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans line in September. Look forward to a trendy sportswear collection consisting of tops, sweaters, jackets, tees, dresses, and jeans to be sold at department stores including Macy's and Dillard's.
