Wearer of latest-season Prabal Gurung and least pretentious fashion plate ever, Hailee Steinfeld, just keeps on legitimizing our obsession with her. In addition to her Spring 2014 tour de force on the Romeo and Juliet red carpet last night, she’s also scored herself the cover of ASOS magazine’s November 2013 issue. Wearing an amazing color-block coat and shiny ankle boots, she proves her ability to style-shame her seniors knows no seasonal bounds.
Inside the young actress makes us increasingly embarrassed of our own teenage years by delivering meaningful quotes without a hint of grandiose. Of the exponential rise of her fashion icon status:
“Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in…I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards…It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything. Now it’s become a huge part of my life.”
She then switches to adorably gushy 16-year-old mode to praise Emma Watson’s style and discusses her love for dresses with eyeballs on them. See the video and exclusive images below.
