Hollywood is hot for Tommy Hilfiger, as evidenced Sunday night at his Spring 2012 womenswear runway show at Lincoln Center. A bevy of babes sat front row, including actresses Abbie Cornish, Malin Ackerman, and Melissa George and British songstress Corinne Bailey Rae.
Cornish was talking up her new film, “The Girl,” to be released next year. Shot this summer in and around Oaxaca, Mexico, and Austin, Texas, the film stars Cornish as a young Texas mother who loses her child to foster care and begins smuggling Mexicans across the border. “And that’s just the beginning,” she says, smiling.
Rae confessed she was in the midst of working on her new album, but was taking time out to attend the Hilfiger show. In other words…playing hooky.
“I guess I am,” she said, laughing. “But actually, I think it’s good to get out to a place like this and mix and mingle with all kinds of creative people. It all helps with the music.”
