Simon Cowell’s new reality music competition” The X Factor” is finding today’s hottest new talent and the music mogul had to look no further than our very own background. Chicago native Chrissy Feliciano was recently featured on the show as millions tuned in to hear her soulful voice in action.
Also a contestant on “American Idol“, CHI-lebrity caught up with this rising star to get her style and beauty scoop.
Describe your personal fashion philosophy.
Be sexy, comfortable, and confident. Step out of yourself and try new things. I like to walk into a room and know that I can approach anyone, spark up a great conversation, and leave with a new friend. Confidence is the best accessory any woman can have. If you believe in yourself, other people will believe in you too!
Where do you go in the city to find the latest and greatest in fashion & beauty?
Everywhere! Chicago is so underestimated when it comes to the public’s perception of fashion. People in this city are on top of all the latest trends and in my personal opinion; we have the upper hand because of all the diversity in this wonderful city. You have the Wicker Park indie crowd, The Gold Coast socialites, the Lincoln Park prep style, and so much more! Everywhere you look you will find young professionals with great style.
Beauty and style wise, how do you get ready to be on a reality show like The X Factor? Do you do anything special to prepare?
I just tried to stay true to who I was and what my personal style was. People can get overwhelmed and lost if they try to be something that they are not. In the end, I want people to remember me for my talent, message, and style. I am who I am and I believe that everyone is beautiful in their own way. Just be happy with who you are because that is what beauty is all about!
