First of all, kudos to Hailee Steinfeld for acting her age. For once, a young celebrity who isn't trying to overdo it or act older than she is - and let's face it, there aren't many women her age who are doing just that. She has emerged as one of the ladies to watch for on the red carpet - and has continued to make the best dressed list throughout this awards season.
Here's a picture of Hailee from last week's Oscars. She is wearing a Marchesa dress (that she helped design), Fred Leighton jewels, and Ferragamo clutch and heels. Now if anyone older than Hailee wore this dress they would look a fool; however, this is perfect for a 14 year old girl. It's sophisticated without screaming prom and the color looks gorgeous with her fair skin.
For the Golden Globes Hailee opted for the last gown she tried on - this Prabal Gurung cream gown with Tiffany Jewels and Ferragamo shoes. Now even though I'm sure this leading lady has stylists giving her countless opinions and choices, I am so impressed with how confident she is when making her fashion decisions. Since she isn't very curvy right now, I love how this look frames her gorgeous shoulders. The simplicity of the hair really shows off the dress and the pop of the turquoise clutch makes it fun. It's a mature look that she makes her own - and her fresh faced make-up definitely ensures that you won't be confusing her with some of the other women in her category.
My favorite thing about Hailee? Her effortless style and desire to remain a young fashionista reflects in her every day life. You can find her sporting skinny jeans, Tory Burch flats, and casual tops while walking the streets of LA. Who knew that I would ever want to raid the closet of a 14 year old? Well, I do and I'm not afraid to say it. Hailee has definitely influenced the opinions of Hollywood elite and it's not just for her acting chops - this girls knows what's up when it comes to fashion.
So Bravo, Hailee! Here's hoping that you have continued success in your career.
