CelebrityHilary Duff for Elle Canada December 2014

Hilary Duff is back, ladies and gents, and looking more fabulous than ever. She’s got a new album on the horizon, a TV show in the works, and she’s pretty much mother of the year! The former Disney star, our beloved Lizzie McGuire, opened up about motherhood (her son is just too cute), marriage, and that awkward Aaron Carter statement in the December issue of Elle Canada, and we were so taken by her maturity and honesty. Wearing furs and sequins, too-die-for thigh-high boots, and that fabulously-feathered hat, Duff is demure and stunning. If you didn’t love her before, well, you definitely do now.
