Inside the issue she is seen in a L’Wren Scott jacket, Kain Label tank, Stella McCartney bra and Current/Elliot jeans, as well as a Giles dress, Shery Shabani for Fragments necklace, Swarovski bangle, Janis by Janis Scott bracelet and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Check out the full photo spread here. The issue is available on the Glamour app (iPhone, iPad and iTouch), the new B&N Nook Color and newsstands nationwide Tuesday, Dec. 7. Here’s a peak at her interview inside this issue:

On how getting older makes her feel sexier…

“I think as a woman, you get older, you feel more confident in your sexuality. You’re not as intimidated by it, not as embarrassed by it. Sexuality and femininity is an accumulation of age and wisdom and comfort in your own skin. I feel better—so much better now than I ever did in my twenties. I am calmer; I know who I am. And as a result, I feel much sexier.”

On women in Hollywood…

“There’s always going to be somebody younger or sexier. That’s why I like to say, and it’s become my famous line, ‘Funny doesn’t sag.’”

On having more kids…

“I would love to have more kids. Kids are the best part of my day. I don’t wake up to make movies. I wake up to hang out with my family.”

On how her goals have changed since making Legally Blonde

“My ambition has sort of broadened. I’m more interested in literature, art, public policy. And I’m really interested in doing more philanthropic endeavors.”

On her life…

“I’m really, really lucky. I’ve got a lot of love in my life. I’ve got great friends. I have two great kids whom I make pancakes for every Sunday. I’m very blessed.”

On making romantic comedies…

“I love romantic comedies. I watch them all the time. I love all my fellow female romantic comedy queens, like Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner and Katie Heigl. I also think that the questions romantic comedies ask about men and women are universal.”

Stylelikeu Spotlight: Alexandria Hilfiger

7 Dec

VIDEO: Alexandria Hilfiger from Stylelikeu.com from Stylelikeu on Vimeo.

Sharing an awesome insider’s look into Alexandria Hilfiger’s closet. Here’s a repost from my friends at Stylelikeu!

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.
