Celebrity Copycat: Hilary Duff’s Look for Less!

Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I love the way Hillary Duff dresses and I don’t think she’s given enough credit for her style.  She’s famous and has access to top designers but she always manages to keep a good balance between classic, trendy and sexy.  Best of all she has a girl next door style that is refreshing and relatable.  Here’s a great example: edgy leather pants toned down with a chambray top and booties. Stylish, sexy and perfect for a young mom.

Kinda loving Eva’s look!  The denim pencil skirt is a nice alternative to jeans and just as comfy (not to mention a great transitional piece for fall with tights).  I personally would keep the top a little sexier with a tank, an off the shoulder top or even a cropped one.  Check out Eva Mendes look for less with pieces from Forever 21, Target, maurice’s & more!

What was your fashion background prior to Project Runway?

I’ve always been an artist for as far back as I can remember.  I’m a self-taught designer and before Project Runway I worked as a set designer for TV and as a fashion stylist.

How have things changed for you after Project Runway?

My world has changed because of my experience on Runway.  I’m, now, able to work full-time as a fashion designer instead of it being just a hobby.  My Christopher Straub for maurices Collection is an absolute “Dream come true” and it may not have been possible if not for Project Runway.

What inspires your designs?

I find my inspirations from nature and it drives my creativity.  Flowers, stones, ripples in water…whatever…it sparks something inside me.

Who’s your favorite designer?

My all-time favorite designer is the late Alexander McQueen.  He was a fashion genius who took risks and challenged the limits of the female form.
