Without a doubt, Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson (Hanna) looked drop-dead gorgeous and incredibly stylish at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards (check out a gallery here). So how’d she get that look?

As it turns out, Rachel Zoe’s former assistant/frenemy Taylor Jacobson was her stylist for the night, and seems to be her perma-stylist for other events as well. We’d already reported the details on Ashley’s Alice + Olivia dress, but now we can hear straight from Taylor what she was going for:

“This white Alice + Olivia cocktail dress was great for Ashley to stand out on the red carpet because the color just pops, and the black trim on the dress gave it a little extra edge. The 50s style is unexpected on Ashley but when she put it on, it just seemed perfect for her. Ash and I always refer to this style of dress as a ‘cake dress.’ LoVe the look!”

We completely agree, and love the idea of putting current Bongo Jeans model Ashley in such a retro look. Not that we’re keeping count, but we’d have to say that Taylor’s post-Zoe career is looking a little brighter than others (ahem, Brad).

Catch an all-new Pretty Little Liars on Monday, January 30 at 8pm ET/PT on ABC Family.
