Tommy Hilfiger to Style American Idol Contestants

For years, American Idol has had iconic singers come on the show to be mentors to the signers. Now contestants are about to get an image mentor/style advice from world-renowned fashion designer Hilfiger. For pop stardom, image can be just as important as voice. So, Hilfiger should be a welcome addition.

"I am honored to be joining Ryan, Steven, Jennifer, Randy and Jimmy for the 11th season of American Idol,” says Hilfiger in a statement. “My own experiences at the beginning of my career inspired my commitment to mentor young people who are dedicated to pursuing their dreams. Musicians can bring such a unique vision and personality to the stage. I admire risk takers who share my belief in the power of fashion to transform and influence, and I look forward to working with the artists to guide them in defining their performance style and identity.”

Of course, Hilfiger has always had a rock star connection. Hilfiger’s designs have been worn by legends including the Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, Britney Spears, David Bowie, Taylor Swift and Beyonce, among others.
