I respect Hilary Duff. While her contemporaries were out there getting drunk and going nuts, Hilary managed to keep a good head on her shoulders – at least from outward appearances. I don’t know what she’s like behind the scenes, but she seems so normal. I love the girl, even if I don’t really hear a whole lot about her anymore. Still, every now and then, pictures like these (taken in LA) surface and I’m reminded that Hilary’s still the cutie she was all those years ago. I love her casual, relaxed style and the fact that she doesn’t really seem to let anything bother her. She proves that it is possible to go from pop princess to regular girl without any of the messy drama in between. Love her.
