Tommy Hilfiger Joins ‘Idol’
Next week, “American Idol” will welcome a new cast member — Tommy Hilfiger, who joins the country’s top-rated show in the newly created post of “image adviser.” After Hilfiger is introduced on air next week, he will meet with each contestant in his design studio, which will be full of clothes and accessories.
“I thought it would be exciting and challenging and different, a place where I could use all of my experience in fashion and music,” said Hilfiger, who spoke exclusively with WWD on Tuesday at the CBS Studios soundstage where “Idol” is taped. The designer was sequestered in a dressing room during rehearsals because his addition to the show had not yet been revealed to contestants.

Marc Jacobs for Dior Rumors Are Back
Whispers on the Miu Miu front row yesterday afternoon suggest that – after all the back-and-forth – Marc Jacobs could be set to announced as the Christian Dior creative director in the very foreseeable future. Jacobs was watching the show front row.
Though there are still rumors floating around that Raf Simons or Stefano Pilati could be taking the title, Jacobs has been the longest standing name in the competition. Oh, what will Louis Vuitton do without him?!
