Hilary Duff is the new face of DKNY Jeans

Earlier this month, it was announced that Hilary Duff would be joining the cast of fashion-centred teen drama Gossip Girl this autumn. The show, set in New York, follows the lives of ‘Manhattan’s elite’ – the rich, stylish and beautiful of America’s fashion capital.

Hilary Duff seems to be getting herself well-prepared for her new role as a famous film star looking for a ‘normal’ college experience in Gossip Girl. Photographs of her modelling a DKNY fashion line that she partially designed have been released today, and have received much acclaim from media reps.

“There is truly something in this line for every girl whose styles change every day, like mine does,” Hilary told “Sometimes I want to wear tight leather leggings with a big plaid shirt, or other days I want to wear a floral-print dress but make it look edgy. Some days I like to be a bit more punk rock, but in a girly way. I love wearing layers and scarves, and I love that this line can be mixed and matched just the way you want it to. I think it’s the perfect line for young girls who can’t afford to buy a lot of clothes these days.”

The line is called ‘Femme For DKNY’ and is aimed at fashion conscious twenty-somethings. It launches in the autumn – at the same time the Gossip Girl episodes starring Duff will air in the USA.
