Hilary Duff Designed Femme With Essentials in Mind

Hilary Duff Femme for DKNYHilary Duff‘s new fashion line is full of wardrobe essentials.

The actress-turned-designer - whose label Femme for DKNY Jeans launched in autumn - says she drew inspiration from her own fashion must-haves when she was sketching her styles.

“I designed clothing that I feel are staples for my closet. Every girl needs a great leather jacket, and every girl needs a skinny pair of black jeans.”

While she loves her job, Hilary admits she finds it strange she is no longer able to visit shopping malls without being hounded by fans and photographers: “I walked into a mall one day and was mobbed by people. And I just remember feeling really different than everyone else. I felt really loved. But it was weird at the same time.”

The actress recently appeared on the hit show Gossip Girl, where she portrayed movie starlet Olivia Burke. The 22-year-old beauty was unsure whether to accept the part at first, fearing she would be too similar to her on-screen persona.

“I was a little hesitant. It was kind of close to home… then I realized, I would never say something that Olivia says like, ‘Oh, this is just for the cameras.’”
