Hailee Steinfeld is one of the coolest 14-year-olds we (don’t actually) know. Not only does she have ridiculous acting chops, she’s also become an A-list celebrity with seriously enviable style. Miuccia Prada certainly agrees, as she’s just named Steinfeld the new face of Miu Miu.
Miu Miu is considered Prada‘s younger sister, but we don’t know many middle schoolers who don the brand’s luxe duds on the regular. Of course, Steinfeld certainly isn’t your average teenybopper. You know, because she was nominated for an Oscar and all that.
We first noticed the actress’s predilection for high fashion when she wowed us in striped Prada and made our SAG Awards best dressed list. She then made our best dressed list once again just a couple of weeks later, due to her chic Miu Miu look at the BAFTA Awards. Sensing a pattern? Sure, she’s worn great looks from Alberta Ferretti, Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, and Marchesa, but Miuccia has outfitted her in her finest. Steinfeld even posed with a striped Prada stole for Vogue!
The star’s stylist Karla Welch told the Daily Beast that Steinfeld has already taken photos for the campaign: “Miu Miu is such a perfect fit for her. Throughout awards season, they were the dresses she wanted to wear.” Not surprisingly, she also attended the label’s fall show in Paris this past March.
For the record, when we were 14, we wore a whole lot of Abercrombie, considered going to the movies a profoundly cultural activity, and had just learned about the joys of Prada backpacks.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
