She won our hearts back in 2001 with her hit Disney show Lizzie McGuire and we sing “Why Not” every time we think of her. Our #WomanCrushWednesday this week is Hilary Duff!
This blonde beauty has always been a positive role model for teen girls everywhere. With a smile and attitude as bright as hers, this former Disney actress might just be the nicest star around. Having just released her comeback single, “Chasing The Sun,” there’s really no one better to call our #WCW than the “So Yesterday” singer.
Here’s why I love her:
While she has a great smile, it’s really her positivity that shines through. Having been in the spotlight since she was 13, she hasn’t let life’s difficult challenges deter her sunny attitude.
If you were as obsessed with the Disney Channel as I was, Lizzie McGuire was where you turned to for life advice. Whether you were dealing with friendships, family issues or dating (remember Ethan Craft?!), Lizzie McGuire wasn’t afraid to talk about it. Maybe it’s silly to say we learned so much from a TV show, but it felt nice to have Lizzie/Hilary tell us that it’s okay to be ourselves.
Oh, remember when Isabella Parigi, a.k.a. Lizzie’s Italian pop star look-a-like, helped Lizzie McGuire fight her stage fright in the Lizzie McGuire Movie?
I am personally a HUGE fan. I get excited every time I watch a show or movie that features Hilary.
Outside of her work with Disney, A Cinderella Story has to be one of my favourite Hilary Duff films.
And an honourary mention goes to the crazy family of 14, Cheaper By The Dozen.
Hilary Duff is at the top of Disney Moms list (yes, I have a list). Duff and her now-separated husband Mike Comrie have an adorable two-year-old son together.
Say hi to Luca Comrie.
Just check out how cute they are as Luca dances to his moms new single, “Chasing The Sun”!
She’s like us
Hilary and I are very similar in many ways.
When we’re feeling good/happy about ourselves, we take selfies:
