Hailee Steinfeld In Prabal Gurung – 2014 Met Gala

Hailee Steinfeld In Prabal Gurung - 2014 Met Gala

Hailee Steinfeld was positively beaming at the 2014 Met Gala, themed ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City today (May 5).

Of course, the young starlet and burgeoning trendsetter had every reason to smile at one of New York fashion’s biggest nights.

Outfitted in Prabal Gurung, she followed the glamorous dress code of the evening in a masterfully sculpted creation—a riff on the high-low trend, complete with a sweeping train—also wearing black and white like co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker.

Smartly extravagant in its shapely, molded ball-gown shape, the design also received a dose of modern edge via the monochromatic, colour-blocked palette and racer-back silhouette.

A low, centre-parted bun and sparkling Van Cleef & Arpels floral earrings brought the classic elegance right back into play, though.

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

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.

Hailee Steinfeld In Valentino – ‘Begin Again’ Tribeca Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld In Valentino - ‘Begin Again’ Tribeca Film Festival Closing Night Gala Premiere

Hailee Steinfeld attended the ‘Begin Again’ closing night premiere during the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival held at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Saturday (April 26) in New York City alongside Keira Knightley.

The young actress showcased some 60s style by wearing an A-line Valentino Fall 2014 leather patchwork dress inspired by Italian pop art.

This fun piece with plenty of personality and pizzazz was styled with a black bandeau (to counter the deep plunge), and simple accessories including a black clutch and ankle strap pumps.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and sleek straight tresses completed her look.

I am delighted she kept the styling simple, as the dress needed to be the main attraction.

Hailee Steinfeld In Miu Miu – Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition -’Spark & Light’ Screening

Hailee Steinfeld In Miu Miu - Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition -’Spark & Light’ Screening

Hailee Steinfeld attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales 7th Edition screening of ‘Spark & Light’ held at Diamond Horseshoe on Tuesday (February 11) in New York City.

The actress worked a 60s-inspired look from Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 collection.

Like Lea Seydoux, Hailee’s look had two red carpet moments.

Her pink printed coat, which could also pass off as a dress, was styled with light-pink knee-high lace-up boots and a pink shoulder bag.
Upon removing her coat, look 2 – a pretty pink blouse and colour-block skirt combo – was revealed.

While the boots might not work for everyone, I love everything about this charming, typically feminine, nod to the sixties.

Tory Burch Rodeo Drive Flagship Opening

Tory Burch Rodeo Drive Flagship Opening

Tory Burch hosted a party on Tuesday (January 14) to celebrate her newly opened boutique on Rodeo Drive, which is her first flagship on the West Coast.

Celebrities came to check out the new store – of course, dressed in Tory Burch pieces, mostly from the Spring 2014 collection, which will banish your winter blues.

Kiernan Shipka: The ‘Mad Men’ actress was by far my favourite at this event. She’s only 14, but I’m always inspired by her red carpet looks. On this occasion she donned a pretty floral embroidered Tory Burch Spring 2014 tunic-style top with matching pants styled with a mirrored Tory Burch minaudiere to round out her uber-chic look, which wouldn’t look out of place on the French Riviera.

Hailee Steinfeld: While I love Hailee’s Tory Burch Spring 2014 ‘Emily’ A-line embellished dress, I wish she’d opted to go sans tights, especially considering she styled the look perfectly, giving it an edge with Tory Burch mirrored ‘Sadie’ slingbacks and a ladylike top-handle bag. The beehive ‘do was a great finishing touch to her ’60s-inspired frock.

Jessica Alba: I often see Jessica wearing Tory Burch pieces in her everyday life, so I was not surprised to see her show her support. Keeping the metallic theme going, she wore a striped cropped top from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection styled with a green freckled-print single pleat skirt from the Spring 2014 collection with the celeb-favourite white pumps.

Hailee Steinfeld In Andrew Gn – InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Hailee Streinfeld In Andrew Gn - InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes Awards Party

Looking more sophisticated than ever, Hailee Steinfeld oozed elegance as she attended the InStyle and Warner Brothers Golden Globes post-party held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 12).

The young star opted for a beautiful Andrew Gn Spring 2014 gown with sheer train and bronzed metallic adornment.

Hailee never fails to amaze with her red carpet choices and here once again she shimmers with natural beauty.

What I think works so well here is the fact she has worn a dress which suits her young style. While it’s certainly red carpet worthy, it’s also not overly formal or grown-up for such a young style star.

The embellishment brings out the shimmering nail polish, and a retro back-combed ‘do teamed with sultry cat eye make this red carpet look suitably both fun and graceful – just like Hailee.
