Alexandria Hilfiger

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

Within minutes of walking through Alexandria’s door, I was quickly immersed in her exuberance as she draped herself in her recent Peruvian purchases of tassles and bells that the Alpaca wear. Her ecstasy over indigenous cultures and their eclectic and colorful aesthetic is palpable and I get it, 100 percent. Even their animals have better accessory options than we do in Manhattan.

Earthy and glamorous, free-spirited and driven, Ally, who sometimes refers to herself as Alexandria, is charming and real. During our shoot, the Joni Mitchell in her danced in her living room to Edward Sharpe while wearing a Bess chiffon hippie dress with Converse sneakers and a tee, proudly talking about how she only breaks the rules if she won’t get in trouble (like wearing this outfit to a fancy event.) Later, her inner Katharine Hepburn emerged in a pair of baggy, pleated high-waist trousers, chunky YSL heels and a button-up shirt tied at the waist, a look that spoke to her serious side and slamming work ethic.

The bike that she rides all over the city – I imagine her in the Annie Hall-ish floppy straw hat, over the knee socks, boyfriend cardigan, and jean cutoffs – is as much a fixture in her apartment as the paintbrushes displayed in a jar and curtains made of fabric from Afghanistan. Every tiny detail is important in getting it right, she says. Whether it’s something from the Gap or Salvation Army, it’s just a matter of whether the sleeves are rolled up or down and whether you have eyeliner on. Ally has known the virtues of what’s tried and true from a young age, she wore a pair of Chinese slippers given to her by her dad when she was a toddler until they didn’t fit anymore.

You won’t find drugs in the pouch that she wears around her neck – she doesn’t even smoke or drink. Rather, she carries a vial of a oil that maintains balance and an amethyst for containing her psychic energy, both of which she has a lot of. Wise beyond her years, Ally is launching her first clothing line in February and stepping into her own fuzzy, authentic slippers.

    I love her jewelry, shoes, and that brown dress! Can’t really say I’m a fan of her style, but she rocks it. I did like her “serious” outfit though!

    I use to watch her show on MTV, always loved her realistic point of view, style, and eyebrows ! Can’t wait to see he line. Very happy to see she is so grounded and doesn’t flash labels around like the show on MTV tried to do. Great girl, we’d get along very well haha!

    I appreciate people who are emotionally connected with every article clothing they have. It seems as though each piece has a story, and when she showed her old shoes that she had a child, I wanted to cry (it could be PMS lol). She seems extremely genuine regardless of her fame and famous parents. It’s nice to know people like Ally do exist :)

    What a refreshing interview…I have secretly carried crystals and spiritual oils with me for a long time now– I love how she shared them proudly. She seems incredibly centered and curious about the world around her. I can completely identify with her bohemian spirit. Love her.

    i remember this girl from a reality show on MTV called “RICH GIRLS”. her and her bestie were followed around and showed themselves to be complete morons. not sure what dadddy did to get that show from ever being re-played because luckily for miss hilfiger it hasn’t seen the light of day since that one season. sorry, but no amount of good PR now will ever change the face of vapidness that she extoled. she’s the poster girl for the spoiled rich. now we can add culture vulture to that title.

    the proof is in the pudding:
