Music Issue Special: Hillary Scott

When the multi-platinum-selling country group Lady Antebellum started, lead singer Hillary Scott’s go-to ensemble was a sundress and cowboy boots. Since then, her look, like the group’s music, has matured. Tailored and sleek, she still hangs onto elements of her down-to-earth, Nashville style. “I can’t escape my country roots and I don’t want to. I remember Reba [McEntire] rocking these embellished blazers and pants, which I do now.”

Offstage, Scott opts for chic comfort, living in Chanel ballet flats, James Perse tees and JBrand jeans. “I love being comfy and put together but with a little bit of glitz. I’m not myself when I’m not.”

What’s your favorite accessory?

"My favorite accessory is my grandfather’s watch. He passed away in November and was like a second dad to me. It’s his and that’s what it makes it cool and special. It's a gold and black watch and it's my favorite. I wear it all the time but I don’t wear it on stage because I don’t want to sweat in it."


How would you describe your personal style?

"I definitely think that my style’s gotten a lot more tailored. Earlier on, I was a dress and boots girl but it’s gotten a lot more tailored. I’ve always loved blazers and a tailored look. It’s become my stage look: a good fitted blazer with a sequined top and my high-waisted Joseph pants. It’s always super flattering from any angle. When there’s a big huge screen behind you and cameras, you want everything to be flattering."


Who are your style icons?

"I absolutely love Beyonce—I love that she has shape and she looks like a woman and really rocks her curves. I admire that a lot, being a real woman with curves. I like pushing the envelope and being eclectic, too, so I like to see what Sienna Miller is wearing. She has a cool, quirky style that I really admire. And Emma Stone has been wearing some really amazing things lately."


What's one of your go-to pieces?

"I have a pair of these Gucci sandals that I actually bought for a wedding. I wore them out–they’re really cool. They’re thong sandals with Swarovski crystals on the strap. You can dress them up with a fancy dress, but they’re great with jeans, too."
