Hilary Duff spoke with Channel Guide magazine about her new movie ‘Beauty & the Briefcase’, which premieres April 18th on ABC Family, which sees the newly engaged singer/actress playing a woman who goes undercover in the business world and find true love. Being into fashion herself, was she excited to get into her role as a fashion writer for Cosmopolitan in the film?
I feel really lucky in that I probably wouldn’t have the same tastes that I have now [if not for my job]. I’ve gotten to meet lots of people and work with great people. I think I know what looks good on me and what I’m drawn to. They let me have a really big part of her style. When I met with the producers … just talking about the project, each time I walked in they’re like, “Yeah, this is the character. This is exactly how we see her. Just like your style.” It was really flattering to me, and fun that I got to be part of that side of it. Instead of just showing up as an actor, I got to create her all the way around, including her wardrobe. It was fun because it wasn’t exactly how I dress. I don’t wear little business suits, and I don’t wear that much color, but I got to have big-time say, which was fun.
