It's no secret that we love Rachel Bilson, not only for her pitch-perfect style but also for her laid-back attitude.

The Nylon cover star, who appears on the mag's November issue, proved her regular-girlness by rooting around in her purse... and we were surprised just how candid she was:

"I feel like Mary Poppins! Look at this, I have a bra in here!" She lifts out a teal bra and feigns disgust before stuffing it back in. Next she pulls out her birth control and takes her Saturday dose with a sip of milkshake. "The first week I get so nauseous so I have to take it with food... All right, let's see what else is here: makeup remover, Advil, nail accessories... Oh! I have socks and a pen in here, too! My wallet, sunglasses, my call sheet, checkbook... I have some Mexican jumping beans! You never know when you may need them!"

What kind of giant bag does Rachel carry? Because we want one for ourselves.

The "Hart of Dixie" star also reveals, however, that she's not so laid-back when it comes to getting dressed:

"I always had to dress myself, which is very interesting when you're two. My poor mom. There was this one dress, it was my favorite - it was really colorful and big and ridiculous. I wore it until it fell apart. I was a very bossy fashionista when I was three. I feel like if I ever have a daughter, there is going to be some sweet revenge placed on me because of how I was as a kid."

It's all been worth it, though, to achieve her signature personal style. Take a look at Rachel's cover shoot and a slideshow of her best looks below! And head to Nylon.com to read more.
