Demi Lovato on Her Style Evolution, Project Runway Debut, and the New Fabletics Collab
It’s time for round two! Today Demi Lovato released her second collab with Kate Hudson’s athletic-wear brand, Fabletics, which she co-designed in addition to starring in the campaign. We check in with the singer about the collection and her go-to workouts, upcoming album, and Project Runway debut.
What’s new about the fall collection?
You can expect new patterns, textures, and colors. There’s some really cool silhouettes. I’m pretty excited about it! I had already done one, so this time I was a little more experienced.
What’s your relationship with Kate Hudson like?
She’s fantastic—we met in the gym, ironically. She was working out and we said hi to each other. She was like, “Do you want to work out with me?” So we started doing an arm workout. She’s in incredible shape, so it was really cool to work out with her.
Do you still work out together?
We haven’t, but I would love to!
What was shooting the campaign like?
I got to shoot in a boxing ring, which was pretty cool.
Do you box?
I love boxing. I’m really into MMA, so a mixture of things—muay thai, jiu jitsu, kickboxing. I also love to hike and surf.
How do you keep in shape when you’re on tour?
I bring a trainer on the road!
Do you ever attend NYFW?
I’ve never been to Fashion Week. I would love to go, though.
How has your sense of style evolved over the years?
It’s become more sophisticated and a bit more chic.
What can we expect from your new album?
More soulful music. It’s more R&B than pop.
Do you listen to your music when you work out?
Only if it comes on in the gym and I have no choice!
What are your go-to jams when you work out?
Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar.
You’re a judge this coming season of Project Runway—what kind of judge are you?
I got to judge an episode, which was pretty cool. I would say that I’m pretty honest and speak my mind, but for the most part, I’m a polite judge!
Do you have a favorite season of the show?
To be honest, I’ve never really watched Project Runway, but it was cool to be on it.
What’s your mantra when it comes to the gym?
Whenever I feel like I can’t do anymore, I always think of a bible verse: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” It’s in Philippians 4:13.
