Rachel Bilson graces the cover of well known diet and fitness magazine Women’s Health which has hit the newsstands on September 13. The star looks spectacular in a body-hugging dark colored dress and sporting the same ombre hair color that has made her a trendsetter just a while back.

Her recognition as a fashion icon is definitely something the star can take pride in. In fact, by her own admissions, fashion is one of her harmless “obsessions”, particularly shoes: “I’m obsessed” she mentions while revealing her love for Charlotte Olympia shoes. “I love her colors and textures. I have these emerald-green ones and a cool yellow raffia pair by her. They’re pumps, but I love wedges too…”

Despite her great svelte silhouette, it appears that Rachel does not obsess over hard fitness routine. Instead, she confesses that she doesn’t necessarily want to spend a lot of time in the gym: “I’m not the kind to go to the gym.” Nonetheless, she does not shun exercise altogether. She credits her great shape to dancing and yoga: “Yoga is a great way to relax and get your body toned.”

Her lax attitude extends to food and happiness as well. Unsurprisingly, she believes that being happy is a mandatory condition for perfect health: “You should enjoy food and enjoy life. Healthiness stems from being happy.” Amen to that.

The fact that she turned 30 last month on August 25 doesn’t seem to have altered her visibly optimistic view of life and she plans to accept her age with maturity: ‘Everyone tells you that things are going to change, so I’m waiting for something to happen. Like I’m going to grow another boob!” she jokingly says. ‘But it is a milestone. You’re coming into your own.”

She also expands a bit on her decision to get back to her boyfriend Hayden Christensen and an encounter with a cute cow that changes her decision of eating meat. “It approached me on the set of Hart of Dixie,” she tells the magazine. “We had a mutual exchange.”
