When Hilary Duff first stepped foot into Hollywood, the former Disney Channel star was an early 2000s fashion icon! Now that she’s all grown up, her style has completely evolved.

“She was so tapped into what her generation was really digging,” Lizzie McGuire costume designer, Cathryn Wagner, told NYLON in January 2021. “I met Hilary when she was 11, and you could see there was something there in terms of how she approached fashion and what she thought of it. I was open to giving her a lot of tools and letting her play with them, and seeing what made sense to her.”

With the ability to create her onscreen persona, it’s no surprise that Hilary’s early red carpet days reflected that of Lizzie’s daily school outfits. When Lizzie McGuire came to an end, her signature bangs and jeans stayed on Hilary for a few more years before she came into herself and started wearing more glam red carpet looks. While her style has definitely changed over the years, one thing that’s stayed constant for Hilary is her love of all things beauty.

“I’m super busy, but I love makeup,” the A Cinderella Story star told Allure in September 2019 while talking about her Nudestix collaboration. “I’m constantly getting my makeup done, but using my fingers is really what I like to do.”

Whether she’s on set or not, Hilary always does her makeup. At the time, she revealed that there was one beauty trend that she was unable to get on board with.

“I like to take risks and do different things with my makeup, but I don’t know that I’m ever going to lean in to the neon phase,” she shared. While neon makeup might not be her thing, the Gossip Girl alum is down for changing up her hair color.

“I’m not planning on any more candy tones, but who knows?” Hilary told Stylecaster in July 2016 of her ever-changing hairdo. “Sometimes I just get an itch. But it’s been purple and pink and green — I don’t know what else I could choose.”

Whether it’s her style or her beauty looks, Hilary has definitely grown and changed a lot throughout her time in the spotlight. And one thing’s for sure, she’s definitely not a Disney Channel darling anymore! Click through our gallery for a full breakdown of Hilary’s red carpet evolution in photos from 2001 until now!
