A chat with Keri Hilson

As SheKnows was backstage at the Zac Posen fashion show during Fashion Week, it was easy to see singer Keri Hilson was ready for her very first runway experience.

A chat with Keri Hilson

The place? It was the MAC backstage lounge in Bryant Park. The purpose? Fashion Week, silly. Timbaland protege Keri Hilson was ready for fashion and SheKnows.

The way she is

Even though her name may not be a household one just yet, no worries, rest assured it will be.

Hilson has written music for Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, Ciara, Usher, Diddy, Ludacris, Jennifer Lopez, Lloyd Banks, The Pussycat Dolls , Danity Kane and Timbaland, to name a few. Her debut solo album In A Perfect World will be released this fall. The album's first single is entitled Energy and is already generating buzz.

Hilson dishes, "It's definitely a dream come true but I did appreciate people who gave me credits so I appreciate when someone walks up to me and tell me what a song meant to them. But now that I'm a vessel from which they hear it I feel they can understand and feel the words a little more."

As for her fashion faves? "I like to mix masculine and feminine. I like styles which give women a tailored look where she's strong. That's pretty much my style."
