Most Stylish New Yorkers 2012: Megan Hilty
Name: Megan Hilty
Occupation: Actress; singer
Playing It Safe: When it comes to style, the star of NBC's Smash (season two premieres in 2013) tells Us Weekly, "I'm classic. I don't take too many risks. I wouldn't do anything without a waist otherwise I feel like I'm in a potato sack. I like a nice, open neckline because I have a big bust." Favorite designers include Roberto Cavalli, Alice + Olivia, Trina Turk and Maggie London.
Sole Sister: "I'm a huge, huge shoe whore. The higher they are, the better," says the Bellevue, Washington native, who moved to Manhattan in 2004. "I display my shoes like trophies in my closet. My favorite pair is a peep toe Christian Louboutin. I've had them for years and wear them all the time. And I'm obsessed with Jean-Michel Cazabat. I have a brown and cream pair that are amazing!"
Savvy Shopper: "I live right by a TJ Maxx so I'm always in there looking for the new shipments. I just picked up some Alice + Olivia sweaters that I can't wait to wear," says Hilty, who recently bought three Zac Posen dresses from Gilt.com. For more spendy excursions, she'll hit Bergdorf-Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Intermix. Recent acquisitions: "I got a Vivienne Westwood jacket in London and I can't wait to wear it this fall. I also love Mackage jackets."
Famous Favorites: Which stars have the best style? "Scarlett Johansson, definitely," says Hilty, 31. "She's always nailing it! She's always put together without feeling forced. She always looks beautiful without trying too hard. And Kim Kardashian is always super put-together."
Quote: "In New York City, we have seasons and there is room for layering. I'm a big fan of scarves and jackets and hats. I love being able to change my look up every season."
