1. They're Living in a Material World

They're Living in a Material WorldWith their new movie, Material Girls, ready for wide release, Hilary and older sis Haylie Duff have teamed up to record a cover of the 80's Madonna classic of the same name. Upon first hearing this news, I was scared the girls would butcher one of Madonna's biggest hits. Yet, upon hearing the track, I found that I actually really enjoyed the Duff's cover! It has a funky, mod feeling to it, and although it's impossible to tell when Hilary is singing vs when Haylie chimes in, the girls are having fun in it. I do have to give Haylie the award for biggest Hollywood hanger-on-er, I mean really, is she riding Hil's coattails or what!

2. Bad Girls

Bad Girls
As if it's not hard enough to get Hollywood teen queens Lindsay Lohan and Hillary Duff in a club at the same time- MTV plans on having the two star side by side in the spin-off of Alex McAulay's novel Bad Girls. Bad Girls is an action-adventure novel about a group of menacing young girls who have been shipped off to the wilderness by their parents- Mean Girls meets Lord of the Flies, if you will. The film should be undoubtly "action-packed" when unscripted sparks fly between Duff and Lohan!

3. Animal activist?

Animal activist?Rockin' the skinny jeans look, in fact rockin' the skinny look altogether, the Duffster has apparantly angered animal activist group SHARK (Showing Animals Respect And Kindness) for making appearances at bullfights and rodeos. Claiming to be a passionate animal rights activist, Hil made a huge deal about not using animals to test for her line of cosmetics. When Duff performed at horse and bull shows, she drew record crowds, and criticism from SHARK. They should turn their attention away from Hil and back towards their cheesy acronym. And Hil should stop wherever she's bringing that cake, sit down and eat it!

HILARY GOES BOHO-CASUAL IN BEV HILLS

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 09 2014 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was photographed out and about in Beverly Hills on April 9, while chatting on her cell phone and munching on an apple. For her boho-casual street style, Hilary paired a chambray button up (like Chan Luu's Denim Blouse) with a pair of shredded jean shorts (try James Jeans' Shorty Slouchy Fit Boy Shorts in Genevieve), and then added on an oversized grey tote bag and a floppy navy hat. From there, HD slipped into a pair of suede boots (like Sam Edelman's Cody in Taupe) and accessorized further with a pair of mirrored Ray-Ban aviators and several layered necklaces. Get the look with Heather Gardner's African Wood Bead Necklace in Turquoise. Do you like Hilary's casual 'fit on this occasion, friends? In other Hilary news, the singer has recently sparked rumors that she and ex Mike Comrie may have rekindled their relationship - either that, or they are really amicable in their split! According to E! Online, "The two former lovebirds met up at the Chanel store in Beverly Hills in separate cars earlier today. While inside, the duo engaged in some innocent PDA, with Comrie hugging Duff tightly in the store, along with standing side-by-side with the actress leaning on his shoulder. While they were not wearing their wedding rings, the insider tells us they seemed very happy and were smiling from ear-to-ear." What are your thoughts, everyone - should Hilary and Mike re-think their split?

HIL'S LA CONVERSATION STOP

To get a look inspired by Hil's here, start with either J Brand's Wax Skinny Jean in Red or Citizens of Humanity's Phoebe Straight Crop Jean in Red Line, and wear with a grey tank (like Bailey 44's Twist and Turn Top in Grey/Black and a pair of studded booties. From there, add on a tan jacket (try The Fillmore's Missy Tinted Jacket in Vegan Tan), a bright yellow bag and a pair of mirrored sunglasses, and you'll be set. Are you into Hilary's bright street style on this occasion, everyone? In other HD news, the actress recently Tweeted a picture of a recent night in she spent with her girlfriends, and captioned the photo: "Bachelor. martini's. Reese's. chips and guacamole. killin this night." Sounds like a pretty fun girl's night in, wouldn't you say?

HIL GETS A LEG UP AT CECCONI'S

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 21 2014 in West Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff got a leg up as she left lunch at Cecconi's in West Hollywood on February 21, rocking a micro mini skirt for her daytime outing. To get a look inspired by HD's, try pairing a blush colored skirt (like Donna Mizani's Circlet Skirt in Sand) with a whimsical printed top (Joie's Iva Print Top in Caviar is similar, and Tibi's Leopard Ditzy Silk Henley in White/Black is an exotic long sleeve version), and then add on a red handbag and an ivory pair of pointed toe stilettos. Several delicate gold bangles (such as Jules Smith's Repeller Cuff with Crystal Stone in Gold) will provide the perfect accent to your ensemble. What are your thoughts on Hilary's daytime outfit here, everyone - does it get a thumbs up or down from you? When it comes to gossip, HD is no stranger to tabloid speculation, and this time around there are reports that she is already dating a new dude since her split with hubby Mike Comrie. After taking in the Miley Cyrus concert in LA, Hil was photographed leaving the venue arm in arm with a mystery man. The man, however, turned out to be her gay hairstylist Marcus Francis. Leave it to the tabloids to always try and turn nothing into something!

HILARY'S CASUAL STUDIO ATTIRE

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 21 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted looking casual and happy as she made her way into a recording studio in LA on January 21, with a MacBook Air and bright yellow purse in-hand. Outfit wise, Hilary wore a graphic print tank (both Nicole Miller's Printed Racer Tank in Black and Free People's Slumber Part Graphic Tank in Ivory are similar) and a pair of slightly ripped jeans (try Genetic Denim's Shya Cigarette Jean in Torch), and then added on a flat pair of Isabel Marant boots (Seychelles' Lucky Penny in Tan are similar to her Marants without the studs) to finish off her ensemble. Are you into HD's street style on this occasion, readers? In other Hilary news, she seems to be holding up pretty well since the news of her split with husband Mike Comrie went wide. After three years of marriage, Hilary's rep confirmed the split with a statement that read: "They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time." However, that didn't stop a number of tabloids from reporting that the couple were dealing with major problems, from living separate lives to going to marriage counseling. Hilary decided that she didn't want to deal with all of the rumors, and addressed them by taking to her Twitter account and saying: "Don't believe the s--t you read! & don't buy trash magazines! They are so gross and so negative. They literally make my skin crawl." Keep your head up, Hil!

DEALING WITH THE PAPARAZZI AS A NEW MOM

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 12 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted toting her adorable son Luca to lunch at Petty Cash Taqueria in LA on June 12, and flashed a quick smile for the paparazzi before heading into the restaurant. For her lunchtime look, HD started with a vibrant pair of red jeans (like Earnest Sewn's Skinny Leg in Crimson Cody) and then wore a slouchy white tee (Michael Stars' Scoop Neck in White is a wonderful basic) under a military green blazer with black lapels. For something similar, I am loving Free People's Linen Moto Jacket in Tech Green as a lightweight jacket for summer. From there, Hilary toted a tan bag and slipped into the celeb-favorite Isabel Marant boots that both Jessica Alba and Miranda Kerr were recently seen wearing. A turquoise ring (check out Robyn Rhodes' Nima Ring in Turquoise added the finishing touch to her casual street style. Thoughts, everyone? In other Duff news, the new mom recently spoke out about how the pains of paparazzi-tracked motherhood. Says HD: "It's hard having a baby and having paparazzi follow you all around all the time. I haven't had to explain it to my son yet, what's going on. For the most part they respect me and they respect my space, but it's tough to always be photographed." Even with all of the paparazzi craziness that she has to deal with on a daily basis, Hilary goes on to say how amazing this stage of her son's life is. She says: "It's a really fun stage right now. My son is 13 months, so we just celebrated his first birthday. He's running around everywhere. He knows what he wants and what he doesn't like and really has a personality now." So cute!

HILARY IS A

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 26 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was photographed out and about in LA on March 26, keeping her look casual and comfortable as she made her way about town. Starting with a mirrored pair of Ray-Ban aviators, Hilary then layered a white tank top (like Michael Stars' 4 x 1 Tank in White) under a long sleeve white t-shirt (like Chaser's Long Sleeve Scoop Back Tee in White), and then added on a pair of cropped black leggings. For a similar pair, take a peek at Hard Tail's Solid Cropped Ankle Legging in Black. A pair of tan flats (for a more interesting pair with a cool pattern, try BC Footwear's Calling All Cars in Tan), and a tan and black Celine tote finished off HD's outfit. Super basic, yes - but cute, no? In other Duff news, the former "Lizzie McGuire" actress recently discussed her feelings on motherhood now that her son Luca is about to turn 1. Said Hil: "There’s really no words to describe motherhood. It’s the most incredible thing every day. It softens you so much. I feel like a big mushy ball." Cute!

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 13 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff attended the Theodora & Callum and Coach Cocktail Party that was held on March 13 in Beverly Hills, along with several other stylish ladies including Christina Hendricks and Anna Kendrick. For her event outfit, Hilary chose a vibrantly printed top (for two options that are similar to Hil's, check out Fifteen-Twenty's Band Scarf Top in Print and Voom by Joy Han's Lily Ruffle Sleeve Top in Multi) and a pair of sleek black skinny jeans (Paige Premium Denim's Skyline Ankle Peg in Black Ink are a closet essential), and then slipped into a pair of nude heels and toted a neutral Coach bag. For another chic option that's similar in color to HD's, check out Zambos & Siega's Chloe Bag in Ivory. Several gold bangles and a glossy lip completed H.Duff's ensemble. Are you into it, everyone? New mom Hilary recently chatted with Access Hollywood Live about how she's pretty much "obsessed" with her son. According to Hil: "[My husband] Mike and I are literally so obsessed with Luca. He's perfect! We should just be one and done. But I think once your kid starts getting older you miss that baby phase and you go in for round two." Do you think that Hilary is going to give Luca a little brother or a sister in the near future, friends?

HIL BRAVES THE RAIN IN BEV HILLS

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 08 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was caught by the paparazzi as she braved the rain in Beverly Hills to do a bit of shopping, and seemed a bit peeved by the lingering photographers. For her rainy day street style, H.Duff started with a pair of grey cuffed pants (for a similar silhouette, try Gold Hawk's Rib Cuff Pant in Slate) and wore them with a buttoned up black cardigan (like Re.set's Button Cardigan with Pockets in Anthracite) and a warm black scarf. For an equally cozy option, take a peek at Minnie Rose's Rabbit Fur Hoody in Black Heather. A pair of black heels and several gold bangles (like Satya Jewelry's Renewal Bangle in Citrine provided the finishing touches for HD's look. Is this something you would wear for running rainy day errands, everyone? As Hil's son Luca gets bigger and bigger, she and hubby still make time for "date nights," a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly. According to the insider: "Her family babysits so they can go on dates. They make time for each other. Plus, they have sweet nights at home with Luca, cooking dinner and watching movies. They're closer than ever!" It's still wild to think that Lizzie McGuire is all grown up with a kid... but super cute to hear about how close her new family is!

HILARY'S NEW TAT

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 11 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. b>Hilary Duff was spotted doing some grocery shopping at Bristol Farms in Los Angeles with her adorable baby boy Luca on November 11, and didn't seem to be too pleased to spot the lingering paparazzi. For her errands ensemble, Hil started with a pair of printed Level 99 floral denim (for two similar denim options with floral prints, try Joe's Jeans' Pant in Electric Floral or Black Orchid's Skinny Tencel Flower in Malaysian Mist), and then wore a basic black long sleeve tee (like LnA's roomy Seamed Cape Tee in Black) and cozy scarf (Love Quotes' Hand Tied Tassel Scarf in Maritime is a great and stylish basic). Accessory wise, HD toted a yellow Goyard bag and then wore an oh-so-trendy pair of red wedge sneakers. What are your thoughts on the Duffster's outfit here, everyone? Is this something that any of you new moms out there would rock? In other Hilary news, the new mommy was recently seen getting inked! That's right, Hil got one more tattoo recently at Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood. According to E! Online, "Duff tweeted the above Instagram pic of herself getting inked and wrote, "dr_woo_ssc pretty bird." The artist who gave Duff her new tattoo later tweeted a shot of his handiwork, a small sparrow with the words "stand by me" underneath it. "Thanks again @hilaryduff," wrote Dr. Woo along with a photo." Very cute tat!

ONE MONTH BIRTHDAY

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 20 2012 in West Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving the Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood after a bit of pampering on April 20, which happens to be the one month birthday of her newborn son Luca! Ever the proud mom, Hilary took to her Twitter account to tell her followers how happy she was, tweeting: "It’s Luca‘s 1 month old birthday!!! I can’t believe how quickly a month has gone by!what a lovely blessing we received! #perfectionbaby :)" When it comes to her post-pregnancy style, it seems that Hil is keeping it casual for the most part... with the exception of her fiesty red heels! For her look, Hilary started with a pair of cropped and cuffed dark wash skinny jeans (like Paige Premium Denim's Jimmy Jimmy Skinny in Rebel) and then wore a slouchy grey tank (try Nanushka's Stellar Tank Top in Taupe), and accessorized with her trademark hoop earrings (check out Avanessi's Knot Hoops in Yellow Gold) and an oversized gold disk pendant necklace (like Danielle Stevens Jewelry's 10k Gold Plated Chain Monogram Necklace). A pair of aviator sunglasses and several gold bracelets polished off HD's outfit. Is this something any of you new moms out there would wear for a day at the salon?

BABY BUMP IN BEVERLY HILLS

Hilary Duff seen on Dec 16 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Photographed leaving dinner at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills with hubby Mike Comrie on December 16, Hilary Duff did a good job of camouflaging her baby bump beneath a cozy looking turtle neck sweater in a seasonal Bordeaux shade. Hil's bump is definitely pretty big at this point, but it doesn't look that huge in these pics, right? To get an outfit inspired by Hilary's, pair either Bobi's Long Sleeve Top in Cabernet or Testament's Lace Cowl Top in Plum with a unique pair of leggings. Hilary's are satin (a tricky material to pull off on any occasion, especially when pregnant) and have paneling detailing down the side, while Sena's Garter Leggings in Black have risque mesh cutouts along the front. From there, accessorize with a pair of gold hoop earrings (try Alex and Ani's Jordan Endless Hoops 2" Diameter in Gold) and a pair of black patent leather platforms and you'll be good to go. You've got to give Hilary credit - for being this far along, she still has the dedication to rock her platforms! While Hilary's son is due in March, the former "Lizzie McGuire" star is already making plans for the tiny tot's nursery! Hil tells Us Weekly that she's been having "so much fun decorating his nursery! I just remodeled the house so it was kind of perfect. My decorator found this wallpaper - this girl in England does it - and it's magnetic! It has all of these adorable characters, so you can move them around on the wall and stuff. There are flying pigs and little clouds, and you can write stuff inside the clouds. It's adorable! It's really, really cute. I know he won't be able to play with that for awhile, but when he's old enough, I guess we'll have to instill not drawing on the walls! But he can move the characters around the walls instead." Sounds super cute!

CHIC BEVERLY HILLS SHOPPER

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 14 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking chic as she shopped in Beverly Hills on July 14, Hilary Duff took a moment to wave for photogs as she toted her shopping bags back to her car. Outfit wise, Hilary started with Isabel Marant's heavily embellished Jordan Jacket (for something similar, check out Sue Wong's Embellished Cocoon Coat in Black) that she paired with a black t-shirt (try Three Dots' Sheer Cap Sleeve Drape Tee in Black) and black skinny jeans (like Siwy's Hannah Jean in It's Magic). Accessory wise, Hilary wore a pair of hoop earrings with red beading to compliment the red accents of her jacket - for a similar pair, take a look at Calico Juno Designs' Siren 40 Earrings in Gold. From there, she wore a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers and toted Lanvin's Amalia Bag, and finished things off with a bold blue bangle and Christian Louboutin's Big Stack 120 Heels. Thoughts on this ensemble, everyone? While I admire Hilary for the thought put into this 'fit, is it a bit much for a casual shopping trip? In other Hilary news, her sister Haylie's boyfriend Nick Zano is opening up about his experiences in the kitchen with the Duff sisters. Says Nick, "The girls are really into cooking so most of the time [our double dates are] going from house to house. The hottest restaurant in our neighborhood is like whoever's kitchen! It's great. Haylie cooks everything. She is an amazing cook and Hilary is an amazing baker." I wonder what Hilary's baking specialty is?

NOT PREGNANT IN PARIS

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 03 2011 in Paris, France. Making a promotional appearance in Paris, France on February 3, Hilary Duff posed before signing copies of her book "Elixir" for her French fans. Wearing the same Charlotte Olympia Dolly Canvas Pumps that Sarah Jessica Parker wore back on March 18 of last year when promoting Sex and the City 2 (these blush-toned beauties have a cool metallic gold platform, and for a classic pair of nude pumps, try Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent), Hil opted for a classic pair of skinny jeans (like Blank NYC's super affordable Skinny Classique in Denim) with a leather motorcycle jacket (get the look with Muu Baa's Buckle Long Sleeve Leather Jacket in Black) and an Alexander McQueen skull scarf. From there, Hilary opted for a rosy cheek, a red lippie, and a pair of oversized green stone earrings, similar to Amy DiGregorio's Tyngsboro Earrings in 14K Gold Filled. We all know how much H.Duff loves her oversized earrings! In other news, Hil recently laughed off the rumors that she was preggers with her first child with husband Mike Comrie. According to Us Weekly, Hil cleared up the rumors by tweeting "Nope, not pregs! Maybe I should start wearing some tighter clothes lol. Wow what a way to wake up and find out you're pregs! It's just a rumor guys! Not true. But thanks for all the good wishes! Lol." Hilary then told the magazine: "I'm really excited to have kids, but I'm only 23, so give me a little bit of time. Come on people!" She definitely has time, no question about that!

BLACK BIRKIN BABE

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 30 2010 in Studio City, CA. Seen grabbing lunch in Studio City on November 30, Hilary Duff was photographed strolling to her car and carrying her covetable black Hermes Birkin. Dressed in what appears to be a mixture of summer and winter items, Hil started with a pair of black leather leggings (get the look with Shirimiri's PVC Legging in Black) and then paired a textured tank (try Mike & Chris' Olyn Tank in Grey Stripe) with a full, cozy knitted vest (just like Burning Torch's Recycled Cashmere Vest in Charcoal). From there, Hilary wore a pair of nude Christian Louboutin heels and a ring with a vibrant blue stone (try Ariel Gordon's 14k Rose Cut Ring in Opal). What are your thoughts on the Duffster's ensemble here, everyone? Is this a look you would sport for a lunch date in late November? It seems that pop diva Kylie Minogue is a fan of Hil's, as the Aussie songstress recently said that HD should play her if a movie is ever made about Kylie's career. When asked who should play her, Kylie said: "I don't know! Not me. I've lived it once, I don't need to live through it again in biopic form. I've been told Hilary Duff resembles me. If she could manage to lose the American accent perhaps that would work. She'd have to watch repeat episodes of 'Neighbours' and 'Home And Away.'" Very interesting - would you agree with this hypothetical casting choice?

CHEERFUL AT TROUSDALE

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 13 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Proving that the married life agrees with her, Hilary Duff was spotted beaming from ear to ear as she made her way into Trousdale nightclub in West Hollywood on November 13. For her clubgoing ensemble, Hil started with an oversized t-shirt with a celestial pattern (get a similar silhouette with Tylie Malibu's Cocoon Top in Black) that she paired with leather leggings with zipper detailing at the ankle and a cozy grey scarf. If you're into to the zippered ankle look, check out Denim of Virtue's Intuition X-Fit Ankle Zipper in Indigo. From there, Hilary toted a metallic silver clutch (like Inge Christopher's Athena Flap Clutch in Silver) and finished her look off with a pair of black pumps and stacked silver bracelets (try Alex and Ani's Cat's Meow Expandable Wire Bangle Set in Silver). Do you like Hilary's outfit here, readers - or is her top just a little too kooky for your taste? Hilary has definitely been making the promotional rounds lately to plug her book "Elixir," and she has been opening up about all sorts of stories involving her wedding. For instance, Hil recently revealed that she thought her engagement ring was fake! She says, "I was kind of scared to look at (the ring)! I got a glance and it was like, 'Are you crazy? Are you kidding me? That's not real. There's no way it's real!' I don't actually know (the carat size). I wasn't like, 'Now, how many carats is this?" However many carats it is, sources have pegged the ring to be worth a cool $1 million. I can see why she'd think a diamond that big would be fake!

NY TIMES BESTSELLER

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 19 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Making another stop on her promotional book tour, Hilary Duff was seen signing copies of "Elixir" at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in LA on October 19. Hil must be on cloud nine right now, as "Elixir" is selling so well that it is on the New York Times Bestseller list for children's/young adult books. Hil tweeted her thanks, saying "You guys made me a ny times best seller! Omg!!!just had a much needed facial and get to go chat with ellen today!" Have any of you purchased the book? For her book signing outfit at The Grove, Hil opted for a casual look by pairing skinny jeans (try either Genetic Denim's The Shane in Admiral or Kill City's Super Skinny in Indigo) with a long sleeve tee (like C&C California's X-Long Sleeve Deep V in Faded Black) and a big floppy hat. From there, Hil slipped into a pair of brown boots (try Farylrobin's Lottie Chelsea Boot in Brown) and wore a pair of thin hoop earrings with, of course, her sparkling wedding ring. What do you think of Hilary's look - love it, or a bit too casual for a public appearance? In related news, Hilary is speaking out about the book writing process, and compared it to planning her wedding. She says, "It’s very similar - They (publishers at Simon & Schuster Children's) were very good to me during the writing process and very lenient with dates and stuff until the very end. Then it got hectic." She continued, "I was planning the wedding, and there’s deadlines with that, too, like getting the location and getting your dress at a certain time... I tend to do everything at the last minute. I couldn’t even choose which one is harder. I guess I’d say the book." Interesting!

BOOK SIGNING BABE

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 15 2010 in Miami, FL. Lauren Conrad isn't the only young celeb on a book tour at the moment - Hilary Duff made an appearance in Miami on October 15 to promote and sign her new novel, "Elixir." For her promotional appearance, Hil donned a pair of skinny camouflage pants (get the look with Robin's Jeans' Benson in Brown Camo) with a simple black top (get a cozy option with Ella Moss' Saint Long Sleeve Cowl Sweater in Navy or check out Corson's great basic Long Sleeve Pocket Crew in Black) and super high platform heels. A few bangles on her right wrist later, Hilary swept her blonde locks up in a bun and added a subtle smokey eye. It wouldn't be a Hilary Duff ensemble without a huge pair of earrings, and on this occasion, HD chose a pair of black showstoppers. If you're looking for statement making earrings, take a look at Kuo Ting Jewelry's Cushion Cut Smoky Topaz Drops in Gold. What are you feeling about the Duffster's look here, readers? Is it one of her best, or do you think it's only so-so? Hilary has been busy tweeting about her jam packed book promotion schedule, as she took to her official Twitter page to say: "Thx too [sic] all that came too [sic] signing in miami! soo sweet to me! means so much! I also got some puppy luv. someone brought their pug! Makes me miss my babies bad! three more days!" After her Miami appearance, Hil hopped on a plan destined for Chicaco, to which Hil tweeted: "Phone was dead all day until now! felt so twitter deprived!in chicago. ready for another signing. forgot how much I love it here." Have any of you made it to one of Hilary's book signings?

BRYON & TRACEY BABE

Hilary Duff seen on Sep 29 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Stepping out for a bit of pampering the day after her birthday, Hilary Duff stopped by the Byron & Tracey Salon in LA on September 29 and was all smiles as the paparazzi snapped away. Dressed in ripped bootcut jeans (like We the People's Madison in Distressed) and a pretty white tank (I love the added detail of Jenny Han's Cowl Arm Ribbon Necklace Blouse in Champagne), Hilary accessorized with a studded tote bag (check out Linea Pelle Collection's Perry Stud Large Tote in Cognac), taupe heels, and a statement cuff on her right wrist. Take a look at Rocco e Dante Handbags' Tara Cuff in Black if you're in the market for a cool cuff. I'd love to hear your thoughts on HD's ensemble here - is she making it work? For those of you who don't know, Hil is the next starlet to be a published writer. It seems that the Duffster has caught the writing bug, and a passage from her first novel, titled "Elixir," was just released. Check it out: "I couldn’t breathe. Wedged in the middle of an ocean of people, I gasped for air, but nothing came. The heat from a million writhing bodies radiated over me, their sweat weighing down the air. I searched anxiously for an escape, but painfully bright lights strobed on and off, clouding my sense of direction. I was losing it. I was going to pass out." Interesting - will any of you be checking out Hilary's literary debut?

DOMESTIC DUFFSTER

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 21 2010 in Studio City, CA. Picking up some domestic duties, Hilary Duff shops for groceries at Ralph's in Studio City, CA on August 21. The adorable newlywed is back in LA after tying the knot with pro hockey star Mike Comrie just a week ago, jetting off to Cabo for a quick honeymoon before heading back to their new multi-million dollar mansion in Beverly Hills. While Mike hit the gym to prep for the upcoming season, Hil took care of the eats for the week, shopping in a blazing red tank with a scooped back revealing her colorblocked bra (check out Ella Moss' Cassandra Tank in Flamingo or Quiksilver's Blackfriars V Tank in Ginger) paired with ripped, bleached skinnies (like Hudson Jeans' Collin Signature Skinny in Stephanie) and some super futuristic silver sneaks. What do you think of her boyish footwear, are you indulging in the high-top trend? To add some shine without looking too space cadet, try Gwyneth Shoes' glitzy Cassandra Ballerina in Metallic. This isn't one of my fav Duffster looks, but I do like that it's so laidback compared to Hil's recent red carpet looks. Thoughts? Now that her big day has passed Hilary has shared all the deets from her dress to the cake, but one surprising tidbit she added caught me by surprise: her wedding was only the second one she'd been to! She shared with OK!: “[I'd] only been to one wedding before in my life, and I just was like, ‘How does this work?” Luckily they figured it out, as Hil continued: “I married the best person I know. I feel so lucky for that, and for him and his family and his love, generosity and friendship. I’m starting to get emotional about it right now! Mike feels like home.” Awww!

SLIMMER FOR THE WEDDING

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 08 2010 in Universal City, CA2010. Always up for teen-oriented festivities, former teen queen Hilary Duff showed up for the 2010 Teen Choice Awards that were held at Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA on August 8. Showing off her curves in a slinky turquoise Herve Leger bandage dress (get similar looks with Boulee's Leah Center Pleat Dress in Blue or Lotta Stensson's Cowl Halter Dress in Peacock), do you think Hil's bod is bangin' here, or should she have picked a dress that's a little more forgiving? And while we're on the topic of her dress, do you think Hil missed the memo that bandage dresses have pretty much been done to death by now? Hilary completed her look with a pair of dove grey suede heels, her GIGANTIC engagement ring and a layered chain necklace. Get HD's necklace look with Robyn Rhodes' beachy Sophia Necklace in White Opal or Kuo Ting Jewelry's more colorful Multi Color Enamel Chain Necklace. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Duffster's look here, everyone! In related Hilary news, it seems that HD is dead set on having a smokin' bod (as is every bride-to-be) before her wedding day. Her personal trainer, Harley Pasternak, says that Hilary "really kicked up her training shortly after the engagement. She looks fantastic from head to toe. Her arms are definitely leaner." Pasternak says that Hil is on "my Five Factor workout five days a week, but each session is never more than 45 minutes long. My training methods incorporate cardio, circuit training and weights." He also says, "my program also includes a diet that consists of five small, healthy meals per day made with simple ingredients." Sounds like the recipe for success.

GORGEOUS AT GUCCI

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 15 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Former teen queen Hilary Duff was spotted doing some damage on Rodeo Dr. in Beverly Hills on July 15, stopping into Gucci to make a few luxe purchases. Hil definitely looked the part of sophisticated Beverly Hills shopper, as she wore a slinky black tank dress along with Lanvin's gorgeous nude chain heels and her black Hermes Birkin bag. To get HD's look here, opt for a body con black tank dress, similar to Splendid's Tank Dress in Black or T by Alexander Wang's Classic Pocket Tank Dress in Black, and pair with an eye-catching necklace (try Amrita Singh's Chalchi Necklace in Black) to make a statement. Finish your look off with a big black tote and a pair of nude heels. Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent are so classic and really lengthen the leg. What are you feeling about Hil's ensemble here, everyone? Are you into it or is it a little too dressy for a summertime shopping excursion? In the "I Wish I Was Hilary Duff" news of the day, Hollywood Life recently posted a picture of Hilary's estimated 10-carat engagement ring that they claim isn't retouched in any way - check it out here. In the article - which they've titled "Hilary Duff! Your $750,000 Engagement Ring Is So Shiny It’s Blinding — And Nope, This Photo Is NOT Retouched in Any Way!" - there's a picture of Hilary's crazy huge ring blinding the camera. Wow!!! It's almost crazy to think that this glare is coming from the ring, without any Photoshopping at all!

NOT AFFILIATED WITH

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 02 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was seen looking all-business as she left a two-hour lunch meeting at Benihana in LA on June 2, toting along a Louis Vuitton agenda to jot down notes in. For her lunchtime look, Hil started with a pair of grey skinny jeans (try Chasely's Denim Legging in Grey) that she paired with an army green tunic (Da-Nang's Printed Long Sleeve Tunic in Jungle is very similar) and her favorite Alexander Wang Coco Duffle Bag. If you're digging the studded style of the Coco Duffle but aren't down with the hefty $700 and up price tag, check out Tylie Malibu's Runaway Utility Bag in Black. For the rest of her 'fit, Hilary slipped into a pair of exotic strappy heels (edge up your look with Rock & Republic's Romy Pump in Pewter), layered a few dainty necklaces and carried a pair of sunglasses. What are your thought on the Duffster's look here, readers - do you think this is flattering on her? For those of you who have heard of McG's latest project called "The DUFF" and think it's a starring vehicle for our girl Hil - you'd be greatly mistaken! Hilary has absolutely no affiliation with the project, and it turns out the "The DUFF" stands for "The Designated Ugly Fat Friend." Ouch! The project "is about cynical 17-year-old Bianca Piper who finds herself falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone... man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush." I'd be pretty bummed if I was Hil, that's not a good acronym to have your last name affiliated with!

CUDDLY AT THE LAKERS GAME

Hilary Duff seen on May 19 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was photographed by a crowd of paparazzi as she made her way from the Byron & Tracey Salon in Beverly Hills on May 19, her blonde locks looking extra shiny after a blow-out at the famous salon. For her casual and colorful springtime outfit, Hilary paired a floral romper (I love the tie dye pattern of Hard Tail's Strapless Romper in Tie Dye, but if you're digging Hilary's foral vibe, Luc by Lucy's One Shoulder Summer Dress in Floral Print is adorable) with a cobalt blue cardigan (similar to Johnny Was' embroidered Alison S/S Cardigan in Dark Star Navy), a wide green waist belt, and a pair of nude peeptoe heels. For the finishing touches of her look, HD slipped on a pair of oversized white shades and toted along her new iPad. And of course, no Hilary Duff outfit would be complete without a pair of giant earrings! Danielle Stevens Jewelry's Oversized Hoops in Gold would definitely be Duff-approved, and are such a steal at only $42. Is Hil's easy, breezy outfit something you would wear for a trip to the salon on a sunny day? I think that Hil definitely made sure to show up in something cute, as she must have known there would be paparazzi outside the salon... there always are! In related Hilary news, it seems that she and finace Mike Comrie are as happy as ever. The two were recently spotted getting cuddly at a Los Angeles Lakers playoff game, as a source said: "Hilary was all smiles as she and Comrie watched the Lakers crush the Phoenix Suns 128-107 in the opening game of the National Basketball Association Western Conference finals." With Hil's hand on Mike's back and his left hand protectively and affectionately on her ankle, these two were the picture of pre-marital bliss!

HILARY STEPS OUT AT TROUSDALE

Hilary Duff seen on May 07 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was caught heading out for a night of partying at West Hollywood hotspot Trousdale on May 7, linked arm in arm with her posse of friends. For her night out ensemble, Hil chose her favorite white skinny jeans (like Genetic Denim's The Shane in Pale) which she was also spotted in on April 21, along with a striped tank (try Rails' Deana Striped Tank in Navy/White) and dove grey peeptoe heels. For her outfit's finishing touches, she slipped on a variety of mixed bangles in silver, red, and gold (I love the look of Alex and Ani's Makah Expandable Wire Bangle Set in Multi) and toted along a basic black clutch (take a look at Whiting & Davis' Classic Facile Clutch in Black). I know that white skinny jeans aren't really that popular of a look for most, but do you think that Hilary pulls them off here? As far as Hil's relationship with finacee Mike Comrie is concerned, it seems that she's getting a bit frustrated by the fact that he grinds his teeth at night. According to The National Inquirer (remember the source here), "The couple has to sleep in separate rooms. It makes the most awful, nails-on-chalkboard noise. Mike has agreed to see his doctor about getting a mouthguard so Hilary can rest easy." Have any of you experienced similar problems with your spouse?

WORK VS. LOVE

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 21 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was caught by photographers as she made her way around Los Angeles on April 21, looking stylish as she kept her 'fit to tones of white and black. Hil paired white denim leggings (like Genetic Denim's The Shane in Pale) with a shiny black top (check out Interlud's Art Deco Racer Top in Black) under a black blazer with strong shoulders (I love the minimal silhouette of Tt Collection's Dylan in Black), topping her look off with a pair of white studded Christian Louboutin pumps. The finishing touches to Hil's sophisticated ensemble were a black clutch (try Jalda's Fabric Kona Clutch in Black) and her iPhone. Do you think Hil looks chic in this outfit, or are you not into it? In other Duff news, Hilary is speaking out about her role in the new ABC Family Channel film "Beauty and the Briefcase," where she plays a journalist who goes undercover to find true love. Hilary says, "I have a girlfriend who interviews people for her job and one time I went on her show and we did this segment where all the tables were turned and I was asking all the questions. It's quite difficult to think of things on your toes and ask questions that will get answers that people want to know about that person." On the topic of a career conflicting with love, Hilary shares "People have to deal with that everyday. All the time is what's more important - am I going to go after my career and get what I want or if love comes along am I going to put everything on the backburner and go for that?" Tough call - what would you vote for?

HIL'S EMBARRASSED BY THE PROPOSAL PHOTOS

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 10 2010 in New York, NY. Former teen queen Hilary Duff made an appearance at the Samsung 3D LED TV Launch Party held at the Time Warner Center in NYC on March 10, along with Avatar director James Cameron, Melania Trump and NYC socialite Tinsley Mortimer. For her partygoer ensemble, Hil started with a pair of skinnies with shredding detail on the knee (try Joe's Jeans' Black Destroy Legging) paired with a white t-shirt (Aude's Flores Short Sleeve Pocket Tee is great), black patent pumps and a black fedora. She finished off her 'fit with a pair of HUGE earrings - can you imagine how heavy those bad boys are? - (for a similarly beautiful pair, try Amrita Singh's Boleyn Earring in Silver) and a black clutch (check out Jalda's Fabric Kona Bag in Black). What are your overall thoughts on Hil's look here, everyone - is it all working for you? As I'm sure you've seen in all of the weeklies, photos of the moments right after Hilary was proposed to by her now fiance Mike Comrie have made their rounds, although Hilary is allegedly super embarrassed by these snaps and think they're "awful." She says, "We had no idea they (the paparazzi) were there; it was weird. I hated that I was taking a picture of my ring and sending it to my mom!" Look on the bright side, Hil... at least you'll have the paparazzi pictures as a memory of this special moment!

WORKING UP A SWEAT

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 09 2010 in Toluca Lake, CA. Enjoying a casual weekend in LA, Hilary Duff heads out to weekend brunch at with sis Haylie on January 9 at Paty's restaurant in Toluca Lake, CA. From Hil's 'fit you'd think it was the middle of summer, not early January, but I guess if the slightly cooler temps don't bother you there's no reason to cover up! Both Duffs kept it low key while grabbing a bite to eat, starting with Hil's oversized boyfriend pocket tee (add a little edge with Rough Roses' Lexington Cropped T Shirt in White) with destroyed Daisy Dukes (start with Paige Premium Denim's booty flattering Palo Alto Short in Barcelona Blue and destroy as you please) and strappy leather flats (love Andrea and Joen's Sahara in Tan). Hilary layered up with a few Bohemian chic necklaces (try Sisco Family Jewels' Red Czech Wrap in Multi which can be worn as a bracelet or necklace!) and carried both a studded tote (try Danielle Nicole's Sahara Studded Messenger in Black) and black hoodie to her outing. What do you think of Duff's casual look, is it similar to what you would wear to a casual brunch? If you're thinking Duffster looks a little bit more toned in the New Year, you can thank her new work out obsession: Piloxing. Since arriving back in LA last week, Hil has been spotted hitting the gym every day to catch this new fusion class, combining the toning and stretching exercises of pilates with the strength building moves of cardio boxing. Sounds like an interesting combo – have any of you had a chance to check out a class in your area?

DUET WITH MORRISSEY?

Hilary Duff seen on Dec 10 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was caught by photographers while she was strolling around in Hollywood on December 10, either looking really peeved that the paps were snapping away, or just having a major case of sun-in-her-eyes. For her casual look, HD started with a vintage Morrissey t-shirt (get the vintage look with Lauren Moshi's Lightnight V-Neck Tee in Black) and a voluminous yellow checkered scarf (try A Graves' Crescent Print Scarf in Marino Wool), pairing them with grey skinny jeans (similar to Habitual Jeans' Ava Skinny Jean in Iso Smoky) and tall black boots (check out Gwyneth Shoes' Remi Boot in Black). She carried a black coat over her arms (like Suzabelle's Fremont Jacket in Black) along with a huge, slouchy grey tote (I love Antoinette Lee Designs' Stella Tote in Dove Grey), and completed her look with a black manicure and a lime green thermos. What are your thoughts on the Duffster's look here, readers - love it or lose it? While it's not unusual for celebs to rock vintage music tees showing off to the world who they are fans of, Hilary has taken it to the next level as she recently spoke out about her adoration for the Smiths frontman, Morrissey. She said, "My ultimate dream would be to do a song with Morrissey. I would be so embarrassed, I would never actually ask for it to happen. We’re so different, but I love him." What do you think, could you ever see this duet happening?

SIWY ON THE SET

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 05 2009 in New York, NY. Taking her new role on Gossip Girl seriously, Hilary Duff was spotted hard at work on the set in NYC on August 5 wearing drool-worthy 'fits for her actress-turned-student character Olivia Burke. She's been on set all week showing off a variety of looks, and I'm happy to see Siwy denim making into onto the show. Hil's stylist started with Siwy's sexy distressed Hannah in Snowstorm skinnies paired with a loose fitting Kain Label pocket tee (try James Perse's James Pocket Tee in White) with a provocative black bra. Love the coordinating black belt (try something funky like Motif 56's Suki Horn Belt in Black) and sexy peep-toe boots, but my eyes are on her Givenchy Maxi Nightingale Bag with the optional chain strap attachment (check out Julie K's Hayley Shoulder Bag in Black Glaze or Antoinette Lee's Stella Bag in Black to get the look without breaking the bank). Talk about fierce! While I think this look suits her, I would've preferred to see a boyfriend blazer with this 'fit. Just because Hil's bigger than the other GG stars doesn't mean she has to wear baggy tees! What do you think of her curvy bod compared to the other Gossip girls? On the show, Hil is playing a famous actress looking to for a "normal" college experience at NYU in a series of episodes set to begin airing in October 4. She'll be attending the university with Blair and Dan while rooming with Vanessa so I have a feeling her NYU experience will be anything but tame! Hil was spotted chatting on set with Penn this week, so you can expect to see a few dramatic scenes starring the pair. Are you looking forward to see Hil join GG or do you wish they'd picked a more "serious" actress for the part?

HIL'S ACTING CHOPS

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 10 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving a Los Angeles home on April 10, holding a script (it seems that Hil is dipping her toes into the acting pool quite a bit lately, with guest parts on "Law & Order: SVU" and "Ghost Whisperer" in the bag). For Hil's day-of-errands outfit, she started with a plain black tank (for a funky, detailed take on the basic tank, check out Qi's Mesh Yoke Ribbed Tank in Black Cashmere) and black leggings with brown knee-high boots (like Matiko Footwear's Scallop Boot in Brown), and carried along her favorite yellow Goyard tote (if you're diggin' the hue of Hilary's bag, try Linea Pelle's Dylan Medium Bowler Bag in Citrine) along for the day. Accessory wise, Hilary wore an oversized pair of silver hoops (I feel like the Duffster is ALWAYS wearing some sort of variation on these earrings - they're like her trademark - and for a similar pair, try Michele Michel Jewelry's Garden Earrings in Silver) and tied a patterned scarf around her neck (try A Graves' Dagger Print Italian Silk Scarf in Pink, or their Paisley Scarf in Grey for a similar look). What is your take on HD's outfit - simple, yes.. but cute? Lay it on me, readers! As I mentioned earlier, Hil has a part on the upcoming April 28 episode of "Law & Order: SVU," a part that she describes as "mysterious." Of her possible upcoming roles, Hilary says, "I would like to do something funny... or I would like to kick ass or something. [I'd want to] be some kind of... not a superhero, but some young person that's empowering and that does something no one expects from her, like take care of problems." What do you think, does Hilary have the acting chops to tackle a variety of roles, or do you think she's a one trick pony?

HIL SCREAMS FOR HOCKEY

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 27 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving the Byron and Tracey Hair Salon in LA on February 27 looking freshly coiffed and super blonde. For her outfit, Hil chose a charcoal grey tee (like P.G.D. Style's Basic Long Sleeve Tee in Smoke) under a black cropped jacket (check out Gold Hawk's Belted Leather Jacket in Moonless Night) and black leggings (Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Jean in Fun Black are like denim leggings). Next, HD slipped on a pair of grey stitched boots that I haven't decided if I approve of yet, as well as a black Hermes bag and gold ring (try Erica Anenberg's Blind Faith Braille Ring in Gold). Overall, though, I like this look on Hilary. As for her hair, it's a little big and fake looking, but I think it works. Add this to the file of things I never knew about Hilary Duff: she is a hockey fanatic! Makes sense, since her beau Mike Comrie plays for the Ottawa Senators. Hil says, "I'm the crazy lady sitting in the crowd screaming my head off." Of Mike, Hil dishes "I've never met anyone who can say a bad word about him. He's generous, caring and sunny. We just laugh our heads off." You hear that? He's sunny!

A RECAP OF THE FEUD

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 13 2009 in New York, NY. Hilary Duff was spotted earlier today, February 13, in NYC as she made her way to Bryant Park for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week Fall 2009, smiling ear-to-ear for the lingering paparazzi. For her outfit, Hil started with a dark brown top with built-in scarf (Gold Hawk's Scarf Tunic in Terracotta has a similar silhouette) and paired with a super wide-leg pair of dark wash denim (for similar options, check out James Jeans' Harley High Rise Super Wide Leg Jean in Kelp, Denim of Virtue's High Rise Wide Leg Jean in London Fog, or Joe's Jeans' Stardust Superflare in Beatrice) and oversized Chanel earrings. While Hil's look is a bit basic (to say the least), she has never considered herself to be a fashion risk-taker, wouldn't you say? For those of you who haven't heard, Hilary is in a major feud with actress Faye Dunaway, regarding Hil's casting in the upcoming remake of Bonnie and Clyde. Originally, Faye slammed Hil by saying that the casting director could have "at least hired a real actress, to which Hilary responded, "I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now too." Yeow! Hilary discussed these digs on a recent appearance on "The Bonnie Hunt Show," saying, "None of my fans even knew who she is. It’s not ok for people to take stabs at you and to say mean things for no reason." Who do you think is right in this battle? Personally, Team Duff all the way!

HIL IS BARELY LEGAL

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 13 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted out in Beverly Hills on January 13, feeding the parking meter before heading into a office building to take care of work obligations. Sporting a bold striped top (for similar, warmer alternatives (for those of you who aren't in sunny LA!), check out Lotta Stensson's Multi Ruffle Sweater in Stripe or Autumn Cashmere's Striped Scoop Neck Top in Black/Optic White) with dark wash wide leg denim (like Joe's Jeans' Stardust Superflare in Beatrice), Hil accessorized with a long pearl necklace (similar to Brian Nagourney Jewelry's Long Pearl Loops Necklace), a lacey tote, and of course, oversized shades. Hey, this is LA! In related Duff career news, Hilary recently signed on for the lead role on a new NBC sitcom titled "Barely Legal." On the show, HD will play a young lawyer, based on the true story of Kathleen Holtz, who passed the incredibly difficult California bar exam in 2007 at age 18, becoming California's youngest lawyer. Sounds like "Doogie Howser" for lawyers! What do you think - will you tune in to watch Duff's latest venture?

DUFF GETS NEW SHOW

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 24 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Pop princess Hilary Duff was spotted shopping at Barney's New York in Beverly Hills on November 24, bravely stepping out with what seems to be absolutely, positively no make-up on. And she still looks radiant! Lucky girl. To get a look similar to Duff's, start with a light wash pair of flared denim, like Aristocrat's Orlando Flare Jean in Harbor, and pair with a cozy sweater in a bright color, similar to Autumn Cashmere's Button Back Cable Sweater in Copen. Hil accessorized with a big, cozy black scarf, a black leather hobo bag (check out Rough Roses' Pamila Hobo in Black, and long drop earrings (Michele Michel Jewelry's Rose Swarovski Earrings in Silver would do just nicely) for her day of shopping with a friend. In other Hil news, it seems the "Stranger" singer has penned a deal for a new show on NBC! The executive vice president of NBC Entertainment, Teri Weinberg, says of Duff, "She is an incredibly versatile talent with a huge following." If the success of her first television show, "Lizzie McGuire," is any indication of how successful this new show will be, execs over at NBC should be very pleased! Then again, a large following of Duff's back then were the tween girl set, who have since moved on to girls like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. What do you think- will Hil's new show be a success?

PUSHING THE ENVELOPE

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 04 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted out in LA casting her vote with sis Haylie (in addition to proudly displaying her "I Voted" sticker) on Election Day, November 4. Looking sophisticated in a button-down yellow sweater (Autumn Cashmere's Cable Grandfather Sweater in Citrine is a snuggly sweater perfect for the winter months, or, if you love this hue and are looking for a bright new dress, check out Shumaq's Fiona Dress in Yellow) tucked into a black skirt (like Prairie New York's Wool Pleated Skirt in Black Flannel), Hilary completed her hitting-the-polls look with black patent heels, silver rings (check out Christie Martin Jewelry's Sterling Silver Band Ring), and cherry red lips. In other Hil news, if you are a fan I'm sure you know that she is releasing her greatest hits album this month. She has already released the steamy video for her new single, "Reach Out," which in a previous entry I reported that the song heavily samples Depeche Mode's classic track "Personal Jesus." Seeming to want to separate herself as much as possible from her Disney persona, Hil writhes around in the video, coos that she wants you to "touch her," and even sucks on a man's finger. Talk about pushing the envelope, H.Duff!

DUFF TURNS 21!

Hilary Duff seen on Sep 25 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff made an appearance at the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards honoring Manolo Blahnik in Beverly Hills on September 25, looking lovely as always. Pairing a patterned blouse (check out Tricia Fix's Betsey Top in Oriental) with a patent belt (like Jack Rabbit Collection's Patent Leather Breathless Belt in Black) and a high-waisted black skirt (similar to Tricia Fix's Kara Skirt in Black), Hil slipped her tootsies into a pair of black leather peeptoe booties (I'm sure they were Manolo's... the night was honoring the legend, after all!) and accessorized with statement earrings and a black clutch (check out Julie K Handbags' Sasha Clutch in Black Glaze). I'm loving the red nails and toes as well... such a classic. Can't go wrong with red! In related news, Hilary celebrated the big 2-1 yesterday in NYC with her beau Mike Comrie, stopping into a children's bookstore as a part of her birthday festivities. As we all know, a judge recently ruled that Hil's father, Bob, had to dish out $12,500 for a present and party for the birthday girl, with her mother paying the other half. A $25g birthday party? Yeah, because that's necessary.

DADDY DUFF GETS 10 DAYS

Hilary Duff seen on Sep 21 2008 in Glendale, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted strolling around the Americana at Brand shopping center in Glendale on September 21, casually sipping on a hot beverage from Coffee Bean while shopping away. Wearing aviator sunglasses with a white tank (like Rails'Lexi Tank in White) and a long grey scarf (check out Alchemy's Paisley Scarf in Grey), Hilary slipped her gams into a pair of skinny black denim (similar to Desert Blue's Bullhorn Jean in Black). Duff finished her look with an intense looking pair of patent leather, Chuck Taylor-esque kicks and a bright red clutch (Posse New York's Natalie Clutch in Fuchsia is actually more of a red shade, and is super similar). Very simple yet sweet. In case you didn't know, Hil's family life as of late has not been going very well, as her father was recently sentences to ten days in jail for contempt of court. The Houston Chronicle reports, "During his on-going divorce hearing, Bob Duff was found to have violated an injunction against selling assets without court approval and was led away in handcuffs by deputies." While I'm not too sure what all that means, it must have been pretty serious for him to score jail time. Eek!

ENGAGED?

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 15 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff and boyfriend Mike Comrie were spotted leaving a romantic dinner at Il Sole on August 15, with Hil looking none too pleased to see the paparazzi. Amidst all the commotion, it has been noticed that Duff was sporting a ring on her engagement finger, sparking the rumor that the two are set to tie the knot. Talk about the oldest publicity trick in the book! Whenever a young starlet wants to stir the pot, all she has to do is plop a ring on her ring finger and look horrified to see the paparazzi... voila! Instant engagement rumor. Duff's worked this down to a science. For her outfit, Hilary paired a brown sweater (like Autumn Cashmere's Button Elbow Sleeve Turtleneck in Pumpernickel) with black skinnies (check out 7 for All Mankind's Edie Zipper Jean in Black) and boots, in addition to gold hoops (super similar to Kimberly Faith's Large Hammered Dome Hoop Earrings in Brass with Gold), a sparkly silver necklace (check out Gemma Redux's Libby Necklace with Green Onyx) and hot pink nails. Regarding the engagement rumors, neither Hilary or her rep have offered up any comments as of yet, although the internet is blowing up with "are they or aren't they????" rumors. I'm sure they'll be on the cover of Us this week with some dramatic headline like "It's No One's Business Whether We're Engaged." What do you think- is Duff off the market for good?

DUFF'S NEW SCENT

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 31 2008 in Toluca Lake, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted out and about in Toluca Lake, CA on July 31, letting out her inner cowgirl by donning a pair of mid-calf cowboy boots. Yee-haw! For the rest of her outfit, Hil paired a tie-cami (check out Gold Hawk's Cami with Tie in English Ivy) with cuffed shorts (similar to Kasil Jeans' Piper Pin Striped Twill Shorts in Natural) and a big purple python bag. Duff kept the accessories simple, besides the bag, however, and paired gold hoops (like Rebecca Norman Jewelry's Large Hammered Hoops in Vermeil) with gold bangles and brown shades (JeeVice Optics' Edgy Sunglasses in Oyster Bronze). Fans of Hilary might be anxious to grab her new scent, "With Love... Hilary Duff," and for good reason- the scent is getting pretty good reviews. The New York Times says, of the fragrance, "With Love smells, interestingly enough, comforting. It’s not identifiably “floral,” not “perfumey” — no aldehydes — and not, honestly, particularly reminiscent of any fragrance I know. It is instead an abstract example of the contemporary naturalist school, a scent one might encounter were one lucky enough to be hugged close to the suntanned neck of a pretty volleyball player on a Malibu beach." Sounds pretty delectable to moi!

DEPECHE DUFF?

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 19 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff and boyfriend Mike Comrie were spotted at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood on July 19, taking in a screening of the record-shattering flick The Dark Knight. Just a side note... did you see this? Thoughts? I loved it! Okay, now back to the fashion. Hil sported a cutout black top (similar to LaROK's Shelley Top in Black) under a sheer shawl, just like Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's Lee Shawl in Black. Finishing off her look, Hil slipped into a pair of white short-shorts (Hudson Jeans' Hayden Signature Shorts in White are similar) and accessorized with black leather ankle booties and a black hobo bag (check out Rough Roses' Soho Satchel in Black). I'm kind of diggin' this look- nothing special, but not bad by any means. It's definitely not as bad as that fishnets-under-boots look Hil sported recently! It is kind of funny, however, that she is wearing pretty much a black cape and boots to watch Batman! In Hilary music news, it seems that her new single (to be released in August) is going to be titled "Reach Out (And Touch Me)" and will feature a sample from Depeche Mode's famous song "Personal Jesus." Oh no, I don't know how I feel about this. I like Hilary and all... it's just that when she tries to make music that is "edgier" (as the producers describe it) and goes so far as to tackle the legendary Depeche Mode- it might just be a recipe for disaster. What do you think- will Duff do Dave Gahan and the boys proud?

SHASTA DUFF?

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 03 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted at the Los Angeles California Animal Hospital on July 3, most likely for the care of one of her many pet cats that she so dearly loves. Hil played it pretty safe with her style, starting with a cuffed pair of skinny trousers and a white tank (like Joe's Jeans' Isley Pleated Top in Bone). Accessory wise, Duff paired a rose colored bag (check out Jenny Yuen Handbags' Gatsby Overnighter Bag in Metallic Rose) with blue suede heels, large aviators and gold jewelry (Rachel Leigh's Audrey Python Bow Bangle in Green is very similar to the bracelet that Hilary is wearing). In other Hilary news, it seems that the Duffster has joined the cast of the upcoming project "Stay Cool," which already has stars such as Chevy Chase, Jon Cryer, Winona Ryder and Sean Astin attached. The film, which can be called a "knowing-your-age comedy," follows "a successful author who is forced to confront an unrequited high school crush (Ryder) when he returns home to deliver a commencement address to graduating seniors." Hil's character, named Shasta, is "a sexy high school senior who flirts with the visiting author and invites him to the prom." Sounds interesting!

GRILLMASTER COMING THROUGH

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 25 2008 in Toluca Lake, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted going for a casual stroll through Toluca Lake with hockey player boyfriend Mike Comrie on June 25, and I'm sure you can agree that Hil's style is definitely questionable at times... and methinks this is one of those time! I just think she's DTM- Doin' Too Much. If you like particular elements of Hil's ensemble, I suggest maybe going the simpler route, and perhaps pairing her vibrant tank (similar to Prarie New York's Column Top in Acid) with denim shorts (check out Joe's Jeans' Braided 5 Pocket Short in Berkley) like she does here, but minusing the fishnets and knee-high boots. Fishnets and knee-highs? You're not working the corner, Hil! Since we are in June, I think she could have done without the scarf (if you like the patterned scarf look for, say, nighttime, check out Alchemy's Colt 45 Scarf in Pink), but the sleek shades (similar to JeeVice Optics' Edgy Sunglasses in Black/Ash Brown) and heirloom-inspired earrings (like Kuo Ting Jewelry's Antique Pendant Earrings in Gold) are nice touches. Overall though, Hil has definitely looked better and definitely looked worse- I mean this isn't a fashion disaster or anything. And did anyone else notice the grilling book Hilary is holding? So cool if she is aspiring to be a grillmaster!

WHO COULD BE MEAN TO HILARY?

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 18 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff worked it on the red carpet of the third annual Loveday celebration and Cartier Love Charity Bracelet Event in Los Angeles on June 18. Hil rocked a 3.1 Philip Lim frock and Jimmy Choo's "Genie" heels, and to get Hil's dress for less, check out similarly hued offerings from Smitten (like the A-line Turtleneck Dress in Blueberry), Ella Moss (like the Rhianna Cami Dress in Wave), and Lotta Stensson (like the Shirred Tube Dress in Peacock). She finished off her look with a striking gold necklace, a white clutch and black nails. To answer the question I posed in my title of this sighting, it seems that former Sex Pistol frontman, Johnny "Rotten" Lydon, was definitely mean to Hil! At the Mojo Music Awards in London recently, a source claims that Johnny "was saying some nasty things to her and her publicist had to step in. Then a bit later, when the artists were being brought together for the final big picture, she had to be kept away from some of the shots because she was so up set. She was in tears. It was a nasty thing to see." Poor Hil! I wonder why he felt the need to be so nasty?

DUFF LOVES HER SOME LAKERS

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 10 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted heading to the Neil George Salon (right) on June 10, and leaving (left) with a freshly colored, layered 'do. Looking very excited in the picture on the left, I have to say... Hil is really starting to look like older sister Haylie! I almost had to do a double take. For her day of salon pampering, Hil started with a pair of pinstripe trouser denim (like Tag Jeans' Bootcut Trouser in Silver Pinstripe) and paired with a black cami with cutout detailing (similar to Gold Hawk's Tribal Eyelet Camisole in Moonless Night) and a cozy-looking sand colored scarf. Duff accessorized with a hugely oversized bag (which, funnily enough, is extremely similar to the one Eva Longoria is sporting in the sighting below!), large aviators and bangles galore, in white, gold, and black (like Rachel Leigh's Audrey Python Knot Bangle in Black). While Hilary is gearing up for the release of her John Cusack-directed dark comedy, War, Inc., she is also making time to take in a few games from her favorite team... the Lakers! Hil was spotted on Tuesday at Game Three of the 2008 NBA Finals with boyfriend Mike Comrie, cheering and watching in excitement. Duff was also seen chatting with Vanessa Minillo, who is still being photographed for... what again?

GOOD GIRL STAYING GOOD

Hilary Duff seen on May 27 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving Mr. Chow on May 26, seeming to be in an awesome mood as she left the restaurant erupting in fits of giggle. Gigglemonster! For her nighttime look, Hil started with a black tank (like Sydney Los Angeles' Sydney Tank in Chateau Black) under a black vest (check out Black Halo's Shawl Collar Vest in Black) and paired with big bling earrings and a bright yellow clutch. Down below, Hil chose a pair of super wide leg denim (similar to Kasil Jeans' Sadie Trouser Jean in Frost) accompanied by a sort of beaded hanging belt thing. First the tassel now this? Hilary sure has a liking for strange waist-wear! While many of her Hollywood peers have done everything under the sun to deem them "bad girls," it seems that Duff is just fine with her "goodie two shoes" image. She told OK! Magazine, "I know people think I'm a good girl and I'm not going to fight it and be like, ‘I'm not, I'm bad.’ I don't really care that people think that. I'd rather them think that than think I'm like everyone else.” Ah, one of the many refreshing reasons why I love this girl.

HIL DISHES ON FILMING SCORPION SCENE

Hilary Duff seen on May 20 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted staggering out of Villa on Tuesday night, May 20, in Hollywood, seeming to have taken such a liking to the tassel that holds her curtains open that she turned it into a belt! For the rest of her look, Hil started with a basic black tank (like Laura Dahl's Racerback Tank in Black) and multi-length, layered necklaces (Robyn Rhodes' Grace Necklace in Gold is a great multi-length offering). Next up was a pair of chocolate wash skinnies (take a peek at Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Jean in Chocolate) paired with black Loubs and a bright yellow python clutch (Julie K Handbags' Envie Python Clutch in Berry Python is a similar bag in a striking shade of pink). While I'm sure many of you have seen the scene of Hilary putting the live scorpion down her pants for her new film War, Inc. when it spread around the internet about a month ago, and now Hilary is speaking out about what it was like to film that scene. Duff told LA Confidential magazine "I really did [put a live scorpion down my pants]. It was scary. I grew up in Texas, and we had plenty of scorpions, but I never had to put one down my pants before. And my pants weren’t that baggy, so I couldn’t get any space. I did it a couple of times with it going down my leg, and it was terrifying. The little thing kept doing backbends because it obviously didn’t want to go in my pants, you know? Everyone on set was cheering!" Yowza!!! Talk about a dedication to her craft!

John Cusack's praise for Hil

Hilary Duff seen on May 10 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted shopping on Robertson Boulevard on May 10 (and was basically swarmed by paparazzi), going super casual and managing to look stylish even though she's basically just wearing a hoodie and jeans. To steal Hil's casual look, grab Kushcush's adorable Samantha Hoodie in Silver and pair with Desert Blue's The Phoenix Skinny Jean in Opalite and flip flops. Accessory wise, Hil threw on a patterned scarf with gradient red shades (similar to JeeVice Optics' Edgy Sunglasses in Red) and a massive keychain. Is Hilary moonlighting as a janitor!? While Duff seems to be doing more acting than singing lately, her co-star and director in the film War, Inc., John Cusack, is heaping praise on the young Duff. Of Hil, John says, "We knew she wanted to do the movie, which takes a lot of courage for a young girl who's already got huge fan base, who's a big popstar. If you think about it, if you want to hold the screen with Sir Ben Kingsley, Marisa Tomei, and Joan Cusack, you’d better be good. And not only did she hold her own, I think she’s every bit as charismatic and wonderful as those other three actors." Wow! Quite the praise from Mr. Cusack. What do you think, is he right?

Duff dishes on new character

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 29 2008 in New York, NY. Hilary Duff hit up TRL in NYC on April 29 to promote her new film, War, Inc., which John Cusack wrote, produced and stars in. Hilary looked radiant and adorable as always, seeming to be freshly bronzed and sporting bountiful waves for her TRL appearance. To get an outfit like Hil's, start with a flirty silk top, like Black Halo's Shirred Halter Top in Red and pair with Denim of Virtue's Daisy Duke Shorts (the same short shorts that Hil is wearing, but in grey), which are also similar to Tag Jeans' Buttoned Roll-Short in Black with Gold Stitching. Accessory wise, Hilary was all about statement pieces, as she paired sparkling hoops (if you're feeling decadent, nab Lana Jewelry's Diamond Luck N Love Earrings in Rose, White and Yellow Gold) with a big cuff and silver ring (reminiscent of Femme Metale Jewelry's Koi Ring in Sterling Silver). Duff spoke out at TRL about her character, Yonica, in the upcoming film, saying what a challenge it was to play a character like her. Duff says, "It was such a trip for me to do this character because it was so different from who I am and even the way I looked in it– she has an accent, she’s Eastern European, she’s a little oversexed, super young, she doesn’t know what she’s doing. And the way she dresses is really cheesy and out of control. It was fun for me to do something so different from who I am." I wonder if Hil will be convincing in this roll, it sounds like it would have been perfect for La Lohan- oversexed, super young and out of control... ideal!

Will hilary's new zip code be 90210?

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 20 2008 in Malibu, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted in Malibu on April 20 toolin' around in a pair of Pretty Woman-esque boots. Her boots are definitely made for walking (and running from the looks of things!). For the rest of her look, Hilary paired cuffed silk shorts (like Johnson's black version, the Silk Shorts with Cuff) over tights, as well as a black coat (like Ecoganik's Mia Jacket in Black), sunglasses (check out JeeVice Optics' Red Hot Sunglasses in Brown Fade) and a studded white belt. E! Online is reporting that Hil in now in talks to star in the much buzzed about "90210" spin-off, allegedly because producers of the show reached out to her because they thought she was just right for the role. The role in question, sources say, "is that of Annie Mills. Annie is a Beverly Hills High student who is into theater acting, just like her predecessor. She’s listening to emo bands, and she yearns to fit in with the alternative crowd and leans a lot on her adopted brother, Dixon." I wonder if Hilary will decide to take this role or not- what do you think? Should Hilary sign up for the "90210" spin-off?

A burning question

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 24 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted grabbing two coffees to go at Starbucks in Hollywood on March 24, leading some to believe that Hil has become a caffeine fiend, a la the Olsen twins, by requiring two coffees to keep her going throughout her day. Caffeine fiend or normal person? I've found myself grabbing a double dose of caffeine on numerous occasions! Hil kept it basic with her look, pairing black leggings (like Laura Dahl's Longfellows Leggings in Noir) with a white tank (I'm loving Rails' Lexi Tank in White) and sparkly jeweled gladiator sandals. Hil also toted along a giant YSL bag, and for a few similar (yet much more affordable) options, check out Julie K Handbags' Debby Tote with Zipper Pockets in Black Patent or Aaneta's Olivia Bag in Black Patent. Hilary has been doing a lot of her normal day-to-day lately: grabbing coffee, shopping up a storm, and picking up groceries in Burbank. A question I've been meaning to ask my loyal readers it this... do you like Hil's style better when she is dressed to the nines, or do you prefer her like this, totally casual yet still put-together?

Hilary lets out her inner slut

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 24 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted making a healthy pitstop during a day of errands with her mom at Whole Foods in LA on March 24, lugging her bag of nutritious goodies to her car while the paps snapped away. Wearing a casual kick-around-town outfit, Hil started her look with a pair of knee length denim shorts (check out 7 for All Mankind's Dojo Bermuda Short in Lagoon) and paired with a white tank (like Sydney Los Angeles' Sydney Tank in Dawn) and a cream colored shrug. Accessory wise, it was all about silver bangles, a black scarf (similar to Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's Imelda Shawl in Black) and gladiator sandals. Hilary has set tongues a-wagging and fingers a-typing over a clip from her upcoming film War Inc. that hit the net this week, featuring Hil putting a live scorpion down her pants. Yowza! Hilary's role in the film is that of a "slutty pop star," and Hil's co-star, John Cusack, said recently that "Hilary played a pop idol from central Asia. So, she was like a Hilary, but not Hilary, because Hilary is so classy, but like a real, and I won't name names, but a real slutty pop star... Hilary is the opposite of that, of course. I think for her to play that, or to parody that, was really great." How many times can he say the name Hilary in that quote- jeez! Well, it must have been fun for Hilary to let her inner slut out for the role. What do you think- do you prefer Hil the actress or Hil the singer?

Tapping her brain on fashion

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 16 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted going on a little shopping expedition at Saks in Beverly Hills on March 16, looking adorable as always. Hil started her outfit with a pair of charcoal grey leggings (like Zoa's Logo Long Leggings in Charcoal), in addition to a slouchy black top (check out Ziji's Kimono Sweater Coat in Black). Hil accessorized with big gold hoop earrings (she is pretty much the queen of gold hoops in all shapes and sizes- take a look at Kimberly Faith's Large Domed Hoop Earrings in Gold), a pair of gold gladiator sandals and a funky pair of square-shaped shades (I am loving JeeVice Optics' Red Hot Sunglasses in Brown Fade). While many of you out there admire Hilary's sense of style, she has spoken out to the press lately about how she manages to look good with the hectic schedule she has. She says, "It’s crazy, but actually, keeping this schedule has taught me a lot of tricks about what to wear when I need things to be easy. I now have outfits that are both unique and quick that I know will absolutely work no matter where I’m going - I love that. I’m very particular about the structure, texture, and detail of all my clothes. My favorite pieces are ones that steer away from the norm, at least a little bit, and I like things that have some drama.” What do you think, do you agree with Hilary's fashion mantra?

duff's mickey mouse update

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 05 2008 in Soho, NY. Hilary Duff was spotted braving the cold New York weather while out shopping in Soho with BF Mike Comrie on March 5. Obviously letting the giggle monster get the better of her (I wonder what was so funny?), Hilary opted for warmth and comfort with her outfit. Starting with a warm black coat (check out Ecoganik's Fleece Wide Collar Coat in Black) and a wine colored patterned scarf, Hilary slipped into a super-skinny pair of denim (like Serfontaine's Starlight Jean in Rinse) and a pair of classic white Uggs. Duff accessorized with an over-the-shoulder black leather bag and a big pair of gold hoops (Rachel Leigh's Circular Earrings in Gold are funky and fabulous). It seems that Hilary has been asked to cover "The Mickey Mouse March" for an upcoming Disney Mobile promotion, and Hil jumped at the chance. Hil said in a statement, "'The Mickey Mouse March' was such a classic song, you know, so many people know it. And I feel it’s kind of like an anthem song when you hear it. You know, it’s kind of stuck in your head for a very long time. I was kind of in a way honored just to get to do a new version… kind of my take on it that’s up to date where you music is now but it’s such a traditional song." Wait, what is "The Mickey Mouse March"? Is it that song that goes "M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E"? I think it is, but how many different ways can you sing a song that is essentially spelling a mouse's name? Just saying!

Duff's (anything but) rough life

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 22 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Hilary Duff ran a few errands during the day of February 22, before heading out to a dinner at Mr. Chows with sis Haylie. All I have to say about Hil's 'fit: killer boots! I'm not sure whether I love them or hate them, but they definitely make an impact. For the rest of her look, Hil started with a pair of black skinny jeans (like Deener's Highwaist Cigarette Jean in Tar) and paired with a white tank (Rails' Alina Ruffle Tank in White is super adorable). Next up was a cropped brown leather jacket, and finally, Hilary accessorized with a LV datebook and leopard print bag (check out Julie K Handbags' Lula Fur Mini Messenger Bag in Leopard). It seems that after her long night out with her sister, Duff needed a pick-me-up, as she was spotted grabbing breakfast and orange juice at Coral Tree Cafe in Brentwood, looking super comfy in a pair of Uggs and jeans. Oh, to be a Duff!

They balance each other out

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 18 2008 in New York, NY. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving a romantic dinner at the Waverly Inn in New York City on February 18 with boytoy Mike Comrie (who bore a shockingly similar resemblance to Hil's old boo- and Nicole Richie's main squeeze- Joel Madden), and there's something different about her, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's just her lighter locks that are throwing me for a loop, but if I'm not mistaken, I think Hil has dropped quite a few pounds of late. Look how much thinner her face looks! Just saying. Hil's stuck to basic black with a pop of vibrant color for her outfit, starting her look off with a ruffled halter top (Autumn Cashmere's Sequin Halter Dress in Black has a very similar neck to Hil's top) and pairing with a pair of cropped black pants (check out Hudson Jeans' more casual Appeal Crop Pant in Black). Duff accessorized with a pair of firetruck red pumps, a classic Chanel bag and a pair of dangly hoop earrings (like Michele Michel Jewelry's Swarovski Hoops in Silver). It seems that the Duffster and Mr. Comrie are still going strong, despite the fact that Hilary has been traveling so much lately due to her Dignity World Tour. Mike's gruff macho-esque hockey player attitude seems like a good balance for Hilary's totally girly side, wouldn't you agree?

Hilary talks skin

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 13 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted walking down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills on February 13, carrying a movie script and talking business with a few men in suits. Hil on the other hand looked girly and chic, in a patterned mini dress (might I suggest Tricia Fix's Kirsten Satin Mini Dress in Black and Orange Spear or Karen Zambos' Short Satin Dress in Striped Satin) if you're looking for a flirtatious patterned mini) with a black sweater (check out Autumn Cashmere's Cable Drape Neck Top in Black. Duff accessorized her look with a pair of white pumps and a sparkly silver necklace (like Maya Brenner Designs' Sparkler Necklace in Sterling Silver) with her bag du jour, her new grey Louis Vuitton. It seems that Hilary is one of the latest celebs to jump on the good cause bandwagon, as she has been photographed for the Vaseline 'Skin is Amazing' campaign. The celebrity photos will be auctioned off and the proceeds will benefit the Coalition of Skin Diseases. Hilary is quoted saying that her skin "blushes when she’s embarrassed, but she is comfortable in it." Adorable!

Miley hearts Hilary

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 11 2008 in Studio City, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted in Studio City, CA getting her nails done on February 11, and seemed pretty chipper about the shockingly bright shade of white she chose for her manicure (check out the after-picture on the right!). Going casual for a day of errands, Hil's outfit consisted of a white tank (check out Rails' Lexi Tank in White) with a pair of dark skinny jeans (like Joe's Jean's Cigarette Super Slim Jean in Kennedy), a grey leather bag with a thick braided strap and a clustered silver chain necklace (super similar to Gemma Redux's Becka Necklace with Green Onyx). It seems that tween sensation Miley Cyrus is one of Hilary's biggest fans, and admires the fact that Hil stuck to the "good girl route," and didn't get all sexed up like Britney or Lindsay. Miley said in a recent interview that she admires Hilary, saying that Hilary's "kind of set the way for all of us, not only just in a business sense, but [by] saying that it is OK to be a good girl. Like, that’s cool! It’s kind of just given us all inspiration to go out. Whether it was her or not, I would definitely be doing what I’m doing, but she definitely made it more acceptable." Aw, how cute... Hilary's a role model for little Miley! But now, can someone explain to me what all of this Hannah Montana craziness is about?

No lip syncing for hil

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 27 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. No, this isn't Mary-Kate Olsen, it's just Hilary Duff doing her best MK impersonation. Spotted leaving a Beverly Hills Starbucks on January 27, 2008, it's clear who Hil's style icon du jour is. Going for the "just rolled out of bed yet still chic" look (and for the most part pulling it off), Hilary started her outfit with a purple knit cap and a pair of supersized shades (check out Nour's Moman Sunglasses in Street). Duff further accessorized with a pair of unique hoops (I'm totally loving Michele Michel Jewelry's Swarovski Hoops in Silver), a quilted Chanel bag and a huge set of keys (is Hil moonlighting as a janitor?). For her clothing, Hil opted for a faded blue hoodie (like Rails' Corado Pucker Hoodie Sweater in Dusty Blue) with a pair of dark, skinny jeans (similar to Deener's Charmer Skinny Jean in Helium). In case you haven't heard, Duff had an Ashlee Simpson-esque mini scandal earlier this month when, while performing in Mexico, she was seen silently singing into her microphone during a part of a song. "Faulty equipment" is allegedly to blame, with Hil's camp saying, "The microphone was faulty and she could clearly be heard singing by fans at the front of the stage. There was no sound coming out, but she was singing." Why is everyone always so shocked when singers are accused of lip syncing? While certain singers who are more "seasoned" and have, let's be honest, better pipes than Duff and sing live, Hilary's shows are more about the performance and less about her voice, don't you think?

Hil dishes on body image

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 21 2007 in Los Angeles, CA. Hilary Duff was seen leaving a hairdressers appointment on November 21 in Los Angeles with sister Haylie, rocking a look that I can guarantee some will love, and some will not. Wearing a long white skirt (check out JW Los Angeles' Cherry Blossom Skirt in White) with a black scoop neck tee (like Woo's Nikkie Tee in Black), a wide gold bangle (like Rachel Leigh's Panel Bangle in Gold and a black patent bag (Antoinette Lee Designs' Besa Stitch Hobo in Black Patent), what do you think of Hilary's long skirt choice- love it or hate it? I'm on the fence... I'm waiting to hear what you have to say about it in the comments! In other Hil news, she is speaking out candidly to OK! Magazine regarding, among other things, her own body image, and opens up on the time in her life when she bordered on scary-skinny. Hil says, "There definitely was a time, about a year and a half ago, when I was pretty obsessed with my body and my weight. It's not attractive when girls get superskinny. Guys don't like it. Girls don't like you as much. You lose some happiness when that's all you think about." I totally see where Hilary's coming from, because it's obvious when all someone is thinking about is food and calorie intake, they are unable to enjoy other things in their life. Seems like Hil sure is wising up!

Together again?

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 14 2007 in Toluca Lake, CA. Hilary Duff was spotted getting her pamper on as she was seen leaving a massage parlor in Toluca Lake, Ca on November 14, looking super comfy yet still staying stylish. In black sweats (like Rails' Corado Pucker Hoodie Pant in Black) with a basic tee (check out Misile's cute Stenciled T-Shirt in White) and a funky scarf, Hil accessorized with delicate earrings (similar to Christie Martin Jewelry's 3 Oval Earrings) and a brown leather bag (Linea Pelle's Dylan Bag in Mahogany is similar). While all the drama with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan and Aaron Carter seems like it all happened a million years ago (hello, it did!), it seems that Hil's not ready to let go of her preteen first love. The Duffster and Mr. Carter were spotted together out and about on Thursday in Los Angeles, and although they kept their distance, there was definitely some noticeable tension between the two. Maybe it's the fact that the both have significant others, as Hil is dating hockey player Mike Comrie and Carter has been rumored to be hooking up with Brooke Hogan (I know, right?). Either way, I wonder what they were doing hanging together once again? Any thoughts?

Hilary gives lap dances?

Hilary Duff seen on Nov 02 2007 in New York, NY. Well this might not technically be a turtleneck that Hilary Duff is wearing, but it's definitely in the turtle/cowl neck family! The piece in question is a grey knit sweater (Zoa's Mock Neck Bell Sleeve Dress in Dove Grey, Paper Denim & Cloth's Cable Sweater Vest in Natural and IISLI's Ibiza Top in Heather Grey are similar cowl slash turtle neck pieces) that Hilary wore with black leggings (check out Hudson Jeans' Skinny Leg Knit in Black), black boots and with her Louis Vuitton Damier bag. Currently in New York with ice hockey player boyfriend Mike Comrie, it seems that H.Duff showed off some of her wild side while on a recent night out. Sources tell the New York Daily News that when Hil and Mike hit up New York hotspot Tenjeune, "Hilary looked nothing like the sweet little ‘Lizzie Maguire’ she once was as she treated Mike to a series of raunchy lap dances. She was having a wild night, drinking Veuve Clicquot straight out of the bottle.” Straight out of the bottle? Work it out, Hil! The source continued to say that when the DJ started playing Hilary's song "Wake Up", Hilary seemed embarrassed and stopped dancing, being helped out of the club by friends a short while later. If you were a pop star and your own song came on when you were out for the night, would you be embarrassed and slink out or rock it out and dance up a storm to your own jam?

Here comes the brand new Hilary

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 19 2007 in Mexico City, Mexico. Hilary Duff stepped onto the red carpet at MTV's Los Premios in Mexico City on October 19 looking all sorts of yummy, like she had bathed in honey or something... her skin is absolutely glowing! This has to be the best I've ever seen Hilary look. Wearing a sultry gold minidress (Crispin and Basilio's Bow Dress is a similar, more casual gold mini) with all gold accessories- gold bag (like Julie K Handbags' Ella Bag in Gold), gold bangle (like Rachel Leigh's Panel Bangle in Gold) and gold earrings (like Vevina Juji's Majestic Hoops in Gold)- Hilary, in a word, looks flawless. Others seemed to think so as well, as a reviewer who took in Hil's Mexico City stop of her world tour focused less on her music and more on her sultry looks! A reporter from The Sun said that "Hilary wasn't afraid to show off some saucy moves much to the pleasure of the male members of the audience." But what about her young fans who adored her on Lizzie McGuire? Looks like there's a whole new Hilary in town now, kids! What do you think, do you prefer Hil to be more innocent and girly, or do you think her sizzling, more mature look works for her?

hil feels for brit and linds

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 18 2007 in Mexico City, Mexico. Hilary Duff continues to rock her hot new look as she appeared in a different outfit at the Los Premios MTV Latin America 2007 Awards on October 18 in Mexico City, Mexico, looking all sorts of smokin' in this sultry little number. Wearing a vibrant tube dress (similar to Holly's Madison Tube Dress with Ruffle in Atlantis and Lotta Stensson's Shirred Tube Dress in Peacock) with a black waist belt (like Linea Pelle's Lambskin Waist Belt in Black), tons of gold bangles and irridescent earrings (check out Vevina Juji's Coconut Shell Earrings), Hilary is definitely taking her more mature, yet still age appropriate, look to a whole new level. Hilary has spoken out recently to Cosmopolitan UK about the sorry state of some of her It Girl contemporaries, such as Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, but not in a negative way. Hil basically says that she would never ridicule or make fun of Brit or Linds, and hopes that they can get better. Hilary says, "It saddens me to know when one does not look for help, not looking for the support of family or friends. I think that the first thing that someone must do: family, help me to improve, help me to leave this behind. That's what they should have to do." Kind of hard for Lindsay to do that, though, with a loco momma like Dina!

Don't drown, hil!

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 02 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff was spotted leaving the Burke Williams Spa on October 2 after having some allegedly much needed R&R. Wearing grey sweats (check out these cute and different Ecoganik Side Tie Capri Sweats in Stilleto) with a white tank (Laura Dahl's Waikiki Top in White is a jazzier version of the basic white tank), black sweater (like Bellekat's Short Bella Sweater in Black), a black patent bag and a turquoise Chanel cuff, Hilary definitely seems focused on getting her lipgloss application just right. The reason why I mentioned that Hil's time at the spa was for some much needed R&R is that Hil had a drowning scare while filming her new film! While filming a scene in the ocean off of the New Jersey shore, it seems that the overpowering waves were too much for Duff to handle and two men in wetsuits had to come to her rescue. In the scene, Hil was supposed to merely float on her back, yet a serene float was quite the opposite of what actually happened! Alls well that ends well, however, as Hil wasn't hurt by the incident, and emerged seemingly unfazed. I wonder if Hil signaled for the men to come to her aide, or if the crew was just being overly cautious? I'm going to cast my vote for an overly cautious crew… because why take chances when a starlet's life may be in peril?

Hilary's acting stretch

Hilary Duff seen on Sep 27 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff was seen arriving at LAX on September 27, going for the comfortable-chic look while trying to remain unnoticed by the paparazzi (shield your face, Hil!). Wearing comfy black sweatpants (like Rails' Corado Pucker Hoodie Pant in Black) with oversized brown sunglasses (check out Nour's Moman Sunglasses in Street), a black long-sleeved tee (similar to Woo's Nikki Tee in Black) under a cream sweater-vest while carrying along her Louis Vuitton Damier bag and slipping her tootsies into her Chanel flats, Hil is a regular designer mish-mosh! Hilary has begun filming her new movie, Greta, which is a dramedy chronicling an interracial romance. H.Duff plays the title role of a waitress in a restaurant who falls in love with one of the cooks, played by Evan Ross, and then has to deal with her grandparents' concern over the criminal past of her new boo. Well I have to say, this definitely is the most challenging role Hil has ever taken on (I mean, her past credits include Cheaper by the Dozen and Material Girls), so I think seeing Hilary in a drama will definitely be interesting. Do you think she'll be able to pull off a dramatic role?

Hil makes dreams come true

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 28 2007 in New York, NY. Hilary Duff was spotted in NYC on August 28th with new boyfriend Mike Comrie and was seen clad in an orange-and-black outfit which is super reminiscent of Halloween! Wearing a funky orange version of Karen Zambos' spooky Cyia Dress in Black Cloud with black leggings, her favorite gold bamboo hoops that she wears everywhere and a coffee-colored leather bag (like Carla Mancini's Whipstitched Tote with Front Pockets in Rust), Hilary's outfit is definitely love-it or hate-it. Personally, I like this funkier look on Hil... I'm just not sure how I feel about her newly lightened locks. Thoughts? Either way, there's no denying Hilary's heart of gold, as she recently made 12 year-old Jeneece Edroff's dreams come true. Jeneece has neurofibromatosis and the little humanitarian has raised over $640,000 for various charities. Upon hearing of the girl's struggle, Hilary has granted Jeneece's wish of meeting the pop star and will be given backstage passes to an upcoming Hilary concert. Stories like this just melt my heart!

HIL WISHES NICOLE AND JOEL THE BEST

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 10 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff was seen leaving the Neil George Salon in Los Angeles on August 10, looking very coy and monochromatic. Wearing a casual black cotton dress (like Zoa's Double V-Neck Tiered Dress in Black) over black leggings, Hil accessorized with a chunky gold bracelet, gold hoops (similar to Rebecca Norman Jewelry's Large Hammered Hoops in Vermeil) and a dazzling gold pendant necklace (check out Rachel Leigh's Hammered Circular Pendant in Gold for a similar look). It seems that although the media painted a picture of Hilary being a jealous ex, in actuality Hil couldn't be happier for her ex-BF, Joel Madden, and his expecting babymama, Nicole Richie. US Weekly is reporting that after Nic and Joel appeared on "Good Morning America", Hilary decided to congratulate the two by sending Joel a text message that Joel warmly responded to. What would we all do without texting? Methinks that Hilary is so over Joel now because she has a new main squeeze of her own, pro-hockey player Mike Comrie. A source tells the mag that "Hilary plays it coy, but she's really into him. He's like Joel– he looks tough, but he's a really nice guy. They're just great together." Congrats all around!

Hil's tour kicks off in Canada

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 29 2007 in Winnipeg, Canada. As Hilary Duff left her hotel in Winnipeg, Canada on July 29, she waved at fans and photographers who were there to give Hil a warm welcome to their country. Wearing jean cut-off shorts (True Religion's cuffed Jessica Shorts in Urban Cowboy are similar) with a white tank (like Laura Dahl's Waikiki Top), gold hoops, Marc Jacobs aviators and oodles of bangles (Christie Martin Jewelry's Love Bangle in Sterling Silver is a good start), Hilary looked ready to go rehearse for her Dignity Tour which kicked off in Canada on July 28. Hilary describes her new tour as "a total dance tour. I’m only doing one slow song. It’s very high-energy.” Hilary wanted to start this new tour in Canada because of how well-received she has been there in the past. Hil goes on to say, "I love Canada. I feel like people there really, really support me, and I appreciate it so much. I don’t think I’ve toured any other place as much as I have in Canada.” I have to say, I admire Hilary, kind of in the same way I admire the Olsen twins or Rachel Bilson. She is smart, savvy and, although she does like to hit up Hollywood clubs every now and again, doesn't seem like she is headed down the "DUI slash rehab" path. At least I hope not!

Lohan in training?

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 25 2007 in Santa Monica, Ca. Now we all know that Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff have had a famous feud in the past, but some are saying that Hilary is headed right down the same road that Lindsay has now crashed off of, because Hil has starting hitting up Hollywood hotspots on an increasingly regular basis. Be careful Ms. Duff- take a lesson from Lohan and make sure not to let the Hollywood scene become your life! While it's true that Hil has been seen slinking out of Joseph's and Winston's at all hours of the night, it's also true that Hilary has a new man in her life. Hil is now dating professional hockey player Mike Comrie, leaving all thoughts of ex Joel Madden at the door. The two were spotted here on July 25, dining in Santa Monica at restaurant Giorgio Baldi, and I have to say, Hilary doesn't look too pleased with all the cameras around! Wearing a lacy tunic (Gold Hawk's Basic Tunic and Embroidered Tunic are both similar) over a pair of black leggings (still?) with white pumps and sparkly, dangly earrings (Michel Michele Jewelry's Rose Swarovski Earrings are similar), Hilary was definitely ready for another night on the town. Let's just hope things work out for Hil and Mike; she went through such a public break-up, she deserves some lovin'!

Is Hilary over being famous?

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 08 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff dropped off a friend at the airport on July 8, looking (like the majority of stars lately) casual and summery. Wearing a relaxed top with crocheted details (Bellekat's Short Sleeve Linnie Top is similar, and Paper Denim & Cloth make a camisole version) with super summery orange shorts (like Johnson's Millicent Shorts in Papaya), silver jewelry and flat leather sandals (Matiko's Ivy Sandals are just like Hil's), it is clear Hilary's main concern traveling to the airport was style and comfort. It seems that another concern on her mind lately is whether or not the rigors of being famous are in fact worth it. Hil told Stella Magazine that she does "get sad sometimes about the constant work. When I travel a lot, usually I'm just so tired that I just want to go to my hotel room and sleep. After doing that for a couple of months you think: 'Why do I do this? Where's the reward?'." Hmm- might the reward be being rich and famous, getting into clubs before you're 21, having designers give you free clothes? Just thinking out loud here. I'm sure, like most people, Hilary feels a little overwhelmed at times, but just remember- when the going gets tough, the tough get going!

No soul mate for Hil?

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 04 2007 in Malibu, Ca. Hilary Duff splashed around in the surf and frolicked in the sand on July 4 at a party she was hosting in Malibu, while flaunting her fabulous new body that she has been showing off on the covers of both Shape and US Weekly magazines. Wearing a black bikini (similar to 1690 Swimwear's Mariah Bikini) with Marc Jacobs aviators, big gold hoops (Danielle Stevens and Rebecca Norman both make to-die-for similar gold hoops) and a ton, and I mean a ton, of bracelets, Hil definitely looked like she was having a blast celebrating the festive holiday. Despite all the carefree fun she's been having this summer, Hilary did get serious in a recent press interview regarding the fact that she's not sure whether or not she believes in the notion of "soul mates", that one person who is destined to be with another. While Hil said that she does want to have a family one day, she doubts if she'll ever find that perfect man to share it with. She says, "I don’t believe in having one partner for your whole life, but I hope I get married. I want to have a husband and two kids and a nice little life baking pies." Sounds quaint! I don't know about you, but I have no doubts that Hilary will be able to have that sweet little life she wants so badly. I mean, who could resist that smokin' new bod of hers?

That pudding won't sell itself!

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 14 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff was on hand on June 14 at Normandie Avenue Elementary School in Los Angeles for a special guest appearance where she promoted backpacks and a special new pudding. Hey, a girl's gotta work! Dressed casually in a striped tank top with bracelets galore and in a pair of J Brand 10 Inch Ankle Jeans (like our Ink wash), Hilary was definitely a hit with educators and school-children alike. I wonder why she was there in the first place though. Did Hilary attend this elementary school as a tiny tot (doubt it) or was she simply makin' a quick buck to make an appearance (think so)? Either way, she was all smiles, which is probably all that the Normandie School wanted. In related Hilary news, she has spoken out recently regarding her own experiences as a child. She was quoted as saying that although her childhood experience wasn't that of a typical kids', she's "experienced things other girls haven't. I've travelled, I'm financially independent, I own a beautiful home and I'm happy with my job. I don't have to struggle with the questions a lot of other women do." Well good for you, Hil. As long as you're happy with yourself, that's the most important thing.

a duff/lohan reconciliation

Hilary Duff seen on May 30 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff was spotted at LAX with sister Haylie on May 30 looking happy and not seeming to mind that there were paps everywhere. Wearing light-wash bootcut jeans with a flowy light brown tunic top (like Karen Zambos' Low Scoop Dress) and paired with a grey button-down cardigan (ParkVogel's Cashmere Cardigan is a similar style in a tan shade), Hil made sure she still looked like her stylish self, even at the airport. In addition to soaring into the sky on a jetplane at LAX, it seems that the Duffster is also reaching new heights in the reconciliation department as well. While it seems that former Duff enemy Lindsay Lohan might have had the worst Memorial Day weekend ever (hello car crash, DUI, cocaine scandal and rehab part two), at least the two girls made peace before Linds headed into Promises. Hilary said recently that she and "Lindsay were out at the same place, and we were like, 'Let's get this out of the way.' And she was really nice, and I was really nice." And just like that, the hatchet was officially buried. Must be nice for Linds to not have any drama with Hil hanging over her head as she re-entered rehab, even though, let's be serious, the drama was about Aaron Carter! Ha!

hilary duff: a shopaholic

Hilary Duff seen on May 02 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. While this most likely not very surprising, Hilary Duff has recently admitted that she has a very serious addiction.. she's addicted to shopping! Seen heading into hot Hollywood eatery Mr. Chows on May 2, Hilary was doing the monochromatic thing, rockin' a pair of dark wash grey skinny jeans with a black v-neck tunic (Signorelli and Woo make two similar tops, the Signorelli tunic totally plays off of the print on Hil's hat!), a chunky necklace and nude peeptoes. Hilary was all set to have a delicious Chinese meal with her sister Haylie, but it's more than likely that she would much rather be shopping! Hil recently confessed that she "probably has 110 pairs of heels and flats, and about 25 pairs of boots. I love clothes. I have a huge fetish for shoes and clothes and makeup." When Hilary was visiting Toronto recently, she told The Toronto Star that she "never gets time to go shopping and I love it so much. I went to Holt's right after I got here straight from the airport yesterday. They were closing but they said, `Shop as long as you want.'" What? A store staying open for a celebrity shopping spree? Unheard of! At least Hilary is one of those it-girls who, even though she has a stylist, knows what she likes and does at least some of her shopping herself!

Hil is a regular stalker magnet!

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 21 2007 in Wellington, Fl. Hilary Duff attended an event thrown by the International Polo Club, Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida on April 21 looking cute as a button as always. Hilary's looks are usually one of two options; sexy and mature, or girly and young-looking, like this outfit is. Wearing 10 inch J Brand Ankle Jeans with a Saint Grace printed pocket tank (this Zoa pocket tunic is similar, but a solid color), white pumps, and a flirty gold necklace and earrings, Hil proves she can still appeal to the tween demographic. Another demographic the Hilary definitely appeals to is the freaky psycho stalker demographic! When Hilary was in Canada on April 24, she was doing an interview with MuchMusic when a stalker came forward and vowed to kill her! He was almost immediately pummeled by policemen and thrown to the ground, and witnesses say he was bleeding. Yikes! Thankfully, Hil wasn't super creeped out by this experience and continued to sign autographs for fans. Hilary was probably used to this by now, after her encounter last year with another stalker who threatened to kill her! Does Hil have like a stalker magnet on her chest or what??

Duff goes to the circus!

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 20 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. Hilary Duff attended the International Polo Club's Annual Polo Ball Black-Tie Gala on April 20, and for some reason circus animals were the guest of honor. Hilary busted out some freaky moves with an elephant, all while wearing her Louboutins, no less. Looking chic in a red/orange mini-dress ( Lotta Stensson makes a dress in a similar standout color with awesome embroidery) with gold bangles and the aforementioned nude patent leather Christian Louboutins, I think Hil has found a perfect polished, grown-up look. It seems that if Hil's recording career ever fell by the wayside, she could fall back on a career in interior design! Apparently, Hilary is obsessed with redecorating her home, and is constantly focused on how she can rearrange or spruce up her living space. Hil told OK Magazine recently that she "loves interior decorating so much. I’m a total OCD freak about it too. I rearrange things all the time, and Haylie’s like, ‘Oh, that’s pretty!’ But she has her part of the house and I have my part of the house.” Ok, now I'm totally envisioning a room with masking tape down the center, with all of Hilary's stuff on one side and all of Haylie's stuff on the other. At least it's good to know that if Hil has to quit her day job, she's got another one all lined up!

The Public enjoys a

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 03 2007 in Hollywood, Ca. Hilary Duff spent the day on April 3 promoting her new album and signing autographs for eager fans in Hollywood, stylin' in a pair of Johnson shorts (these Millicent Wool Shorts are the same style in a different color), which she paired with a leather jacket and black cami (check out the Karen Zambos Low Scoop Dress for the dress version of Hil's style). Doing all of this press for her album "Dignity" must make Hilary feel like she's on top of the world, due to the successful chart positioning of the album during it's first week of sales. "Dignity" opened at #4 on the Billboard charts, which is one of the best debuts of her career. The success of her new album prompted the Duffster to clear some things up, however, about her lyrical inspiration for some of the tracks. While it was widely thought that the song "Gypsy Woman" was about Nicole Richie, her ex-boyfriends new main squeeze, when in fact it's about the dissolution of her parent's marriage. I guess the gypsy was the other woman! Well known for her over-the-top facial expressions (along with Jessica Simpson), Hil made a shocking expression at her autograph session.. I wonder what someone said to her? Did they call her Nicole?

do you see the problems you cause, Joel?!

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 26 2007 in New York, NY. A sleek and sophistocated Hilary Duff headed into MTV's TRL Studios on March 26, chicly clad in a black trenchcoat ( Ziji and Lotta Stensson make similar stylish coats), cuffed 10 inch black J Brands and patent leather Louboutin stilettos. Hil has definitely come a long way from her pre-teen Lizzie McGuire days! Off to TRL to promote her new album, Dignity, it has recently been revealed that this album might have never been released at all. The Duffster was thinking of scrapping the majority of the songs from the record, due to how most of them were about how in love she was with her ex, Joel Madden. Instead of cutting them from the album completely, Hil wrote (yes, wrote!) and recorded some songs about love gone wrong to balance out the lovey-dovey ones. It's a good thing that she didn't decide to cut them altogether, as that would have made her run in with Joel at TRL even that much more awkward! Hil said that "it was the first time we'd seen each other and it was so, like, nerve-racking. I knew that he was going to be there and he knew. It is what it is." All I have to say is whoever booked these two on the same show… genious!

Hilary has dignity

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 05 2007 in London, England. Hilary Duff was seen heading into Nobu in London on March 5, as she is in the UK promoting her new album, Dignity. Wearing ink J Brands with a white cami and cool leather jacket with thumbholes, Hilary is getting more gorgeous as the days progress! Although the title of her album is Dignity, it seems like she's getting a little catty on the title track. " Where's your dignity? I think you lost it in the Hollywood Hills. Can't buy respect but you can pick up that bill," Hil sings, obviously lashing out against Nicole Richie, who is dating her ex-boyfriend Joel Madden. In the track "Gypsy Woman", Hil sings that " She lets you think that you found her first / That's how she works her sick and twisted gypsy curse / Talks with a grin 'cause she's got no shame / Enjoy the fame, bringing down the family name". Hmmm… might that family name be Richie? Just wondering. When asked if these songs are directly about this little love triange, Duff's people say that "Yes, some are. But she has gone through a lot, including a very frightening pair of Russian stalkers." How could I forget that! One thing is for sure, this new album is going to get the US Weekly writers working overtime!

the gays love hil

Hilary Duff seen on Mar 05 2007 in London, England. After a promotional visit to Madrid, Hilary Duff is back in London promoting her new album, but had time to stop for lunch with friends on March 5 at a Lebanese restaurant, and wore her favorite black 10 inch J Brands with a white cami, black fitted coat and white Louboutins. She's looking great! Recently, Hil had a little encounter that just goes to show, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Unbeknownst to me, apparently tons of gay men love the Duff, as evidenced by this little encounter Hilary had at Barney's. Hil recalls how she "was in Barneys, shopping. And there’s this kid who works there who looks like a hardcore kid, you know? And he was staring at me, and I was like, “Oh God. I’m probably about to get some rude comment. He probably hates me and thinks I suck.” Because he looked like a really hardcore kid, even though he works at Barneys. And he comes up to me and goes, “So, when am I going to get your new single? I’m gay, and I love you, and I’m just so happy that you’re doing this dance music because I can go out and dance with my friends!" Wow. First of all, how hardcore can this kid be, he works at Barney's. Second, I bet Hilary will now think twice before she assumes that someone isn't obsessed with her, you never know, they may be gay and love your dance music!

another rumored rift

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 17 2007 in Los Angeles, Ca. When Hilary Duff was posing for this promotional shoot for her new album Dignity back in February, I don't think she had any idea how much gossip some of the lyrics would stir up in the press! Wearing two pairs of Davis by Ruthie Davis black and white patent leather pumps (Davis' Frame T Chrome Chic Patent Heel is a similar shoe from the designer) as well as two versions of the same detailed mini-dress (Zoa's Sheer Dot Halter is a flirty halter version of Hil's dress that comes in both black and white), Hilary definitely looked very grown up. When asked to talk about her new single, "Stranger", numerous people continued to think the song talked about her ex Joel Madden's relationship with Nicole Richie, even after Hil already confirmed that her song "Gypsy Woman" wasn't about Nicole. Now Hilary is saying, yet again, that she "made it seem like this was a relationship that I was in, but it's actually about my parents and about their relationship. But I didn't want people to know that." I can totally understand that, a parent's divorce is a really sensitive subject to put out in the public eye. Now that we know Hil has no ill-will towards Nicole, it seems the media needed to make someone else Hilary's arch nemesis, and looks like they chose faux-punk Avril Lavigne! Allegedly, at Maxim's Hot 100 Party, an "all night drama-fest" occurred due to how the feuding girls could not stand to be there at the same time, with Maxim sources saying that Avril kept "threatening to take off and was driving everyone crazy." Ugh, despite the fact that Avril totally gets on my nerves, I think this story falls perfectly into the category "don't believe everything you read"!

get it out of your system, girl!

Hilary Duff seen on Feb 10 2007 in West Hollywood, Ca. Ever since revealing to Ryan Seacrest that she now loves "dating like a guy", squeaky clean pop princess Hilary Duff has totally been hittin' the town and playin' the field! When she broke up with Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden (who is now joined at the hip with Nicole Richie), I'm sure there was a lot of chocolate eating and Kleenex purchasing. But now she's over it and is one lean mean dating machine! Hil says that "dating is fun. I kind of feel like a guy! It's, like, I can do it now. But I feel kind of wrong at the same time. I've never gotten to date before, so it's kind of exciting. I've always just had a boyfriend, you know? I'm young!" Young you are little Miss Duff, in fact, too young to be allowed into LA hotspot Area on February 10! However, this didn't stop the Duffster, as she went out in an ensemble that is, how should I say this, a little more "Britney appropriate". In a raggedy red mini, fishnets, leather boots and (the saving graces of the outfit) a v-neck sweater with skull earrings and gold bracelets, Hilary looked like we've never seen her before, cute but a little provocative! And to top it all off.. the gold Razr? Eesh!

While Hilary says that she and Joel are still on speaking terms, they have each also moved on. She explains, "I had a really great relationship with him, and we still have a great relationship, which is really good and unusual. He's a good person, and I will always care about him." Such maturity from such a young girl!

a glimpse of the real hilary!

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 25 2007 in Hollywood, Ca. One word: Yikes! Who knew little Lizzie McGuire had this in her? You know if this was a blind item everyone would go "Duh, no brainer.. obviously Lindsay!" But Lohan it 'aint, it's actually Hilary Duff goin' all sorts of crazy! Hil was spotted in the Valley over the weekend having lunch with sis Haylie, looking cozy and comfortable in medium wash jeans tucked into black Uggs and a gray v-neck sweater; this low-key lunch was most likely recuperation time from Thursday night!

The gossip swirling around this young, innocent starlet is saying that the Grey Goose definitely had Hil feelin' loose as she stopped by eternal hotspot Hyde on January 25. Seen making out with an older man, dancing on tabletops with Paris and lashing out at girls in the bathroom, who knew Hilary was such a party animal? Sources say Hil "was pretty drunk and staggering around the bathroom, bumping into people and shrieking", when the other girls in the bathroom told Hil that her gay male friend had to get out. Both Hil and Haylie partied steadily the rest of the night at their VIP table, leaving the club at the wee hours of the morning. If this is true, Hilary might be following Lohan's footsteps.. right into rehab!

She's Not Over It

Hilary Duff seen on Jan 03 2007 in Miami, Fl. Like any 19 year old would be, Hilary Duff is still pretty broken up over her break up with longtime boyfriend, rocker Joel Madden, who has quickly moved on to Nicole Richie. So, to get out of her breakup funk, Hil headed down to Miami with sis Haylie Duff in hopes that she could party her cares away, Britney style. Well, maybe not Britney style, that might be a little too extreme, but she did set out to do anything except for think about Joel. On January 3, Hilary went out to the clubs looking very grown up wearing jet black J Brands with a Chanel top, an oversized red ring and a cute clutch. And of course, to top off this woman-in-black outfit, black nailpolish!

In Miami, Page Six is reporting that, while club-hopping with Haylie, Hilary rejected every guy who tried approaching her, including Nicky Hilton's now single ex, "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly. Kevin tried chit-chatting with Hil, who, according to sources, looked really bored. I guess getting over Joel is going to take a little more time than she thought; I guess tattooed (fake) rockers really leave their mark.

'Mo Money, 'Mo Problems

Hilary Duff seen on Oct 13 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. Life as a teen star isn't as carefree as everyone might think! Little Lizzie McGuire herself, Hilary Duff, has been dealing with a stalker who claims that he wants to kill the teeny Duffster! So now, wherever Hil goes, she travels with her big burly bodyguard to protect her every move. But seriously, how would anyone ever be able to kill one of these It Girls, there's constantly paparazzi following them every second, even when they go on fast food runs (um hi Paris at McDonalds every day), so if some idiot tried to kill them it would all be captured on film! I think it's so funny what stars people become freakishly obsessed with, you just know her creepy stalker dances around in his bedroom at night to "What Dreams are Made Of"!

For Hilary's glitzy look here, grab her tried and true pair of J Brand 10 Inch Ankle Jeans in Ink and don't forget a hot bag, like our Aaneta Medium Martina Bag in Black. Now, be careful Hil!

Being original? So yesterday!

Hilary Duff seen on Sep 01 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. Ashlee? Mary Kate? Mischa? Nope! It's Hilary Duff actually, although it certainly is hard to tell these days! Hil was seen in Los Angeles on September 1 toting around her chihuahua Lola, looking cute but wearing a belt from five years ago. Let's focus on the two best parts of Hilary's outfit: her jeans and her shades. Since the skinny jean trend shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon, Hil chose some cute tapered capris in a medium wash, like our Joe's Jeans Cigarette Ankle Jeans in Ella, which are perfect to wear casually with flip flops, as Hilary does. Next, Miss Duff chose a big black pair of aviators, with center accents, like our Tom Ford Ryan Sunglasses with Shiny Black Frames, which, although they are big, are a fun fit for Hil's face. I think it's time for Hilary to go back to blonde, it seems like everyone's a brunette these days!

Shop 'Till She Drops

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 21 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. Looks like someone had a shopping spree at Planet Funk and Macy's! With Hilary's career in the slow lane, what with the absolute bomb of her movie Material Girls with sister Haylie, seems like Hil needs a little bit of a career makeover. Maybe she should shy away from movies aimed at the demographic of middle school aged girls, and start going for more adult parts. I know, I know.. her fan base is young. Well, everyone has to grow up sometime! Hil is sportin' the skintight J Brand 10 Inch Ankle Jeans in Ink, along with an empire cami, like our Gold Hawk Lace Applique Relaxed Cami in Peaches. Looks like Hilary is simply shopping her blues away, just like many of us have done on many occasions!

The year of the ankle

Hilary Duff seen on Aug 04 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. A recent convert to the J Brand school of denim, Hilary Duff steps out in her 10 Inch Ankle Jeans in Ink for undoubtedly a fabulous night on the town. With her new movie Material Girls, which she co-stars in with sis Haylie Duff, being released this Friday, there is no doubt that Hil is preparing to go into PR overdrive! Pair these super chic ankle length skinny jeans with a flirty Ella Moss top, like Hilary does, and you've got the ideal look for a night out with girlfriends. Let's just hope your fame hungry older sister doesn't try and go out with you, and hang on for dear life!

Black is the new black

Hilary Duff seen on Jul 24 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. There have definitely been a serious of blackouts in Hollywood lately, and no I'm not talking about power outages, but celebs who are adopting the basic look of wearing a black tee and skintight jeans to go out at night! First Angelina Jolie (who has made black her trademark for years) to Jessica Simpson, now it seems that the young Hilary Duff is going back to black as well! Hil is definitely gracing some red room somewhere with her presence, wearing her fave J Brand 12 Inc Pencil Leg Jeans in Black with a basic puff-sleeved tee like our Three Dots Supima Cap Tee in Black. The standout of this outfit though is definitely Hilary's exotic necklace, similar to our Castaway Jewelry Natural Horn Pendant Necklace with Stones, so pair this hot necklace with basic black and you'll be all set for a night on the town.

Do they ever go anywhere separate?

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 25 2006 in Los Angeles, Ca. Are Haylie and Hilary Duff joined at the hip? We get it girls, you're sisters.. but even Paris and Nicky and Ashley and MK attend certain events without their sister. At an event for Equinox Gym, Hilary Duff remained at the forefront of fashion in June in her Joe's Jeans Cigarette Jeans in Slash, before the whole skinny look really took off. A longtime fan of skinny jeans, I wouldn't be surprised if Hil made her own line of skinnies for her Stuff by Hilary Duff collection!

Leggings Just Don’t Seem to Be Going Away!

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 20 2006 in Hollywood, Ca. Well now that it has been established that the curse of the 80’s leggings is definitely back and does not seem to be going anywhere, leave it to the good old Duffster to epitomize the trend. At an event in Hollywood, Hil paired her leggings with a cute jersey dress, similar to our Karen ZAMBOS Jersey Mini Dress in Black, adorable heels and funky bracelets, like our Jenna White Jewelry Ice Cream Bracelet. When Hilary first dyed her hair darker, I thought it was appalling. But now, it’s actually kind of growing on me. Get down with your dark self, Hil!

Hilary in J Brand Skinny Jeans

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 03 2006 in Los Angeles, CA. 2006 Kid's Choice Awards

Hilary Duff on Jay Leno

Hilary Duff seen on Jun 13 2005 in Los Angeles, CA. Knowing that the "safari look" has been all the rage lately, Hil wears a flowing dress with a tribal print to a filming of the "Jay Leno Show". These muted earthtones with the contrasting red stripe work well for Hilary, going well with her natural sandy blonde hair.

Hilary in Joe's Jeans

Hilary Duff seen on Apr 23 2005 in Los Angeles. Little Lizzie McGuire has grown up to be quite the stunning, and fashionable young woman. Hilary paired these sleek Cigarette Jeans from Joe's with a neutral tank and embellished bronze vest. She is casual yet polished, the perfect ensemble for a dinner date in Hollywood.
