Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. Jaimie Hilfiger
Fri, 24 Feb 2012 11:33:51
We don't just interview artists and musicians in the space of the Take Aim column. We probe people who are in the midst of pop culture and who have a cool take or perspective on fashion, as well. That's why when given the opp to go mano y mano, at least in the verbal sense, with the lovely and fashion-minded Jaimie Hilfiger (yes, of those Hilfigers), we had to. Not only is Jaimie Hilfiger lovely, she has a great sense of style and she was generous with her information and style points.
She had us eating out of the palm of her hand after she submitted, gracefully, to our Take Aim Q+A. You don't need to read Seventeen or Allure when you can absorb a Take Aim like this one.
If you were not involved in fashion, what would you be?
I'd definitely be a dermatologist! I have always been fascinated with beauty rituals and skin care techniques I think it would be so interesting to learn more. I would love to be educated in this field to always find out about the newest and latest products and procedures.
Can you share your role/gig/title with us?
People refer to me as an American heiress, socialite, fashionista, model, actress and TV personality all rolled into one.
What trends or styles do you think will be most prominent in 2012?
This spring we are going to see a lot of cheerful color blocking. After a long winter this will certainly bring out the spring in everyone. Pastel shades such as sea-foam green, coral and cream will add a lady-like touch to your wardrobe. Wear these colors in pleated piece or peplum skirt and you have mastered this spring trend!
For fall 2012, metallic pieces will be seen from wardrobe basics to going-out gear. There will be a lot of textures and an overload of elegance in eveningwear. For a more daytime look, a woman who knows how to pull off a sexy military, hunting, and outdoorsy look will fit right in during the colder months.
One trend that will be consistent throughout both seasons is luxe, rich prints. The prints that I have been seeing are very Versace and Cavalli influenced. The key is just to know which print you want and how you want to wear it, because you can't wear them all.
Can you talk a little about how you think runway fashions and Hollywood influence one another?
Runway fashion and Hollywood style go hand and hand. There is no doubt that they both pull inspirations from each other. Many top designers will design their entire collection off a Hollywood film or a hit television series. In return, most red carpet looks are the toned down versions of the couture designs seen on the runway.
Do you have any skills or hobbies that are little known?
Like I mentioned earlier I have a huge beauty guru. I am obsessed with makeup, pampering procedures and face and body products. I am very skilled in applying makeup and at-home facials. If I could, I would have a full service spa in my house with the newest and latest treatment machines.
