Hailee Steinfeld In Erdem -  The Breast Cancer Research Foundation 2014 Hot Pink Party

Hailee Steinfeld attended The Breast Cancer Foundation’s 2014 Hot Pink Party at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Monday (April 28) in New York City alongside Liz Hurley and Sara Bareilles.

Opting not to go the pretty pink dress route, the young starlet flouted the rules, wearing an Erdem Fall 2014 black velvet dress with a draped back and asymmetrical-detailed ivory high neck construction.

I’m sure she just met the criteria of the pink dress code by adding a hot-pink Valentino satin clutch and matching pink lip; but dress code aside, this look feels too fall-like, not only for the event but also for the season.

Misgivings on the season appropriateness aside, I do feel like she pulled off this tricky look, but I would remove the pink clutch, which feels so out of place.

Black Bionda Castana scalloped-edge heels and a neat ponytail completed her look.
