Actress Rachel Bilson played Summer Roberts on the television drama The O.C. In addition to her acting portfolio, she is also known as a fashion maven, pursuing it seriously enough to launch her own clothing line in 2008. However, her wardrobe suffered a major blow when her Los Angeles home was robbed in 2009 while she was on vacation in Canada.
A representative for Bilson claimed that the actress had lost hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of clothes and jewelry in the robbery. However, those close to the actress claimed that the stolen goods had sentimental value for her that far outweighed their monetary worth. Among the items stolen were a collection of vintage shoes and all of her jewelry, some of which was inherited from her grandmother.
