Who We Met: Hanging With Hilary Duff in the Hamptons
Who: Sharon Clott, Fashion News Editor, InStyle.com 
Star: Disney star-turned-new mom Hilary Duff
When We Met: July 20, 2013 at the FIJI Water Pool Party in Sag Harbor, NY
Sharon Says: “It’s no surprise Hilary Duff has 848,257 fans on Instagram and 3,357,374 Twitter followers — she is so friendly! I had been following her feeds for a while (they are so cheerful and optimistic), so it was nice to get some face time when I met her at the pool party she hosted in the Hamptons for FIJI Water. We had plenty of time to girl talk at the intimate bash, and we hit all the topics you would cover with your closest BFF — fashion, beauty, boys and babies (her son Luca is almost 18 months old). Two things we had in common: A love for blue summer dresses (hers by Jen Kao, mine by H&M) and an obsession with chunky wedges (she’s 5’2” and I’m 5’0”). I was definitely taking notes on where she nabs her favorite petite finds!”

Behind-the-Scenes: Testing Adidas New Springblade Sneakers

“It was so much fun playing guinea pig last week when I tested Adidas’s Springblade sneakers (available on adidas.com starting August 1). The company sent me a pair in neon pink so I could try out the shoe’s new “blade technology,” which uses 16 blades on the soles to spring your movement forward. Together with InStyle.com’s photographer Alex Reside, we went to Rockefeller Center to pound the pavement for a Friday afternoon impromptu photo shoot. Alex made me run in circles around him for 30 minutes just to get the right shot. But it was worth it! By the end, we amassed a mini crowd (so I showed off my new kicks to a bunch of New York tourists) and he took some fun action shots. As for the shoes? They felt as cool as they looked.”
