Cassie's hair is SO BLOND now! That's the first thing we noticed when we caught up with the 24-year-old singer last night during Fashion's Night Out — the second annual night to celebrate shopping — where she was stationed at the Nicole Miller boutique in Manhattan. Cassie had just attended the designer's fashion show earlier that day with her half-shaved haircut, so when we caught up with Cassie at the store, we just had to know her hair and makeup tips, favorite designers, and her style icon (someone she said she wants to be when she "grows up"). Can you guess who it is? Read on to find out.
It's Fashion Week! What shows do you plan to attend?
Cassie: "I just went to Nicole Miller's show and it was amazing. I will definitely be wearing a few of her items next spring. It was so feminine and crisp. Very exciting! I'm not sure what other shows I'll be at, I still have to look through the schedule."
Who are your favorite designers?
"I'm really into the big designers. I love the over-the-top designers who sort of have the big over-the- top fashion shows. I love Alexander Wang, and who doesn't love Marc Jacobs! Gucci makes great looks that I can wear at performances or even at a cool party. But if you mean greatest designers of all time, I'd have to go with Versace and Alexander McQueen. I mean there is ALWAYS a Versace or McQueen item that I love. They are my go-to designers."
Who is your style icon?
"There is only one Kate Moss, she is just the ultimate. I hope to be as stylish as her when I grow up. Ha! I just really admire everything about her. She can throw on a T-shirt and jeans and it just looks chic. She just really gets fashion. She's also my favorite model, I just really admire her."
How would you describe your personal style?
"You know people think I'm very high-end, very trendy. But to be honest, I think I'm pretty easy and casual. I think you're the most fashionable when you can just get up and go. Style should be easy and casual, it shouldn't be so fussy. I love when designers mix in a few casual looks, that's what drew me to Nicole Miller."
What are your top hair and makeup tips?
"It's whatever you feel comfortable with; I've changed my look so many times. Some people like it, some don't. But I like the blond and I'm happy with it. Trends go in waves, so you have to figure out what works best for you."
Will you be hitting the Sean John Fashion Night Out party with your friend Diddy after this?
"Not tonight, this is it for me! I'm turning in!"
