Tommy Hilfiger won't just be the father of the bride when his daughter Ally Hilfiger ties the knot with fiancé Steve Hash – the fashion legend will also hold the title of the wedding gown designer! Ally opened up to HELLO! on Thursday at the FIJI Water x Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards about planning her nuptials and collaborating with her famous dad on her dream dress.

When asked whether her dad – who was honored with the Fashion Visionary of the Year award – would be creating her bridal gown, the 31-year-old told HELLO!: “Of course!” But it looks like Ally's father isn't alone in undertaking the task. She admitted, “He and I are collaborating a lot.”


Working on the gown has been a special project for the father-daughter duo. “Oh it’s fun!” the bride-to-be said. “He has a really great eye and [knows] what looks good on a woman – and I have a clear vision of what I want, so I think that combining those will make for a beautiful dress.”

As for the look of the gown, Ally confessed, “I’m a bit of a bohemian, gypsy kind of chick,” so the dress will reflect that type of aesthetic. While a date hasn’t been set, the designer’s daughter is thinking of possibly “the summer around the beach somewhere.” The Bite Me author added, “[That] would be nice.”


Ally and her longtime love, who share daughter Harley together, got engaged in July after nearly six years of dating. Steve popped the question during a trip to Paris with a ring that he designed himself.

Following news of the engagement, the mom-of-one told People magazine, "I was so surprised and overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."
