It was a solid 33 degrees Celsius today so what better way to cool off than to hang out with our favourite fashion star Rachel Bilson over a little ice cream, thanks to Magnum who just launched a new line of mini bars that are perfectly petite (just like Bilson!).

Tell us about what you’re wearing: “I’m in head-to-toe Phillip Lim, a huge fan of his. He’s so sweet and I think designs so beautifully made for women.” [Get the dress here!]

How do you beat the heat on a hot day like today? “Today’s so hot, so definitely some ice cream. Slurpees too, but I guess you call them slushies here…and white water rafting. I’d love to try that in Canada, we do it all the time in Tennessee.”

You’ve been to Toronto many times, do you have any favourite spots in the city? “I’m huge fan of Yorkdale mall. It has everything you need. And Topshop’s there too! Which is a big deal. So that’s definitely a plus for me. I love the drive-ins up North. Totally down with that. The Beaches is such a cute area and Centre Island. Also, all the antique malls outside the city. And for vintage I like to go to Queen Street West. Oh! I was under the CN Tower the other day and I saw people hanging over the edge in the orange suits. I’m totally going to do it [the EdgeWalk]. The suits are questionable. I guess they make you wear it,” we suggested a Chanel one, designed by her friend Karl Lagerfeld. Bilson’s response: “That’d be perfect!…and I’ll let you know when I do. Actually, let’s go right now.” [Editors Note: Unfortunately we did not…yet!]
