Guess what just arrived? Hailee Steinfeld‘s campaign for Miu Miu – and it completely rocked my expectation’s boats. The first look completely aligns with the represented Fall/Winter 2011 collection, and Bruce Weber‘s film-esque lens is a welcome change from the over-processed campaigns that Miu Miu have been edging away from. It is love.
14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld could easily make women twice…thrice…her age green with envy. The beautiful teen was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar thanks to her performance in True Grit. Then, she shows up at events like the SAG Awards and Golden Globes wearing prime candidates for best dressed lists (Prada and Prabal Gurung, respectively). To follow, she gets front row seats to the best of Fashion Week. Now? She has just been announced as the face of Prada’s younger line, Miu Miu.
To Hailee’s stylist, Karla Welch –
JOB WELL DONE. I can’t wait for this.
This morning, I spent a total of six hours tweeting you every fashionable and entertaining moment of the Oscars – from red carpet to Best Picture. Though my brain is now mush, the Academy Awards had such an exceptional fashion showing that I had to share my best dressed list with you in time for the Western timezones’ morning blog check! Prominent trends were nude colouring, sparkles, burgundies and lilacs: see below. View Post
Awards season fashion deserves a standing ovation this year. The 2011 SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) Awards are usually a hotpot of missteps – a tradition stylist-ly avoided this year! One of my favourites? January Jones. This ornate number by Carolina Herrera has the most incredible cut and detail. WORK, Betty Draper.
After her Black Swan co-star Natalie Portman wore this exact palette on her Viktor & Rolf gown at the Golden Globes, we have Mila Kunis‘ version a la Alexander McQueen‘s 2011 resort collection. Cartier bracelet to top it off. Imagine a black carpet to see it at it’s best.
15-year-old True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld deserves a round of applause for picking the ugliest dress from Prada’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, lengthening it, and killing it. How does she do it? The hot pink nails, Solange Azagury-Partridge lips ring and matching lipstick certainly help.
Dexter’s Julia Stiles looked the best I have ever seen her last night. Her Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2011 navy and white ombre gown was the perfect level of eye-catching and was perfectly accessorized via vintage jewels and Jimmy Choo‘s “Mini Tube” clutch.
Because I love Tina Fey, I try to avoid looking at her red carpet ensembles. My theory is that she either a) gets drunk before dressing or b) has the world’s most hateful stylist. Things have finally changed – just look at her in this brilliant red column gown by Oscar de la Renta. Smashing.
