Hayden Panettiere is Just Like Us! Except for the Whole Celebrity Thing.

I recently interviewed Hayden Panettiere, who was in town to celebrate the opening of Belk at the Galleria. I was unsure of what to expect.

There were some quirky pieces–tanks as long as dresses, for example–but I would have worn most of it myself. The same could be said for Jim’s […]
