Hailee Steinfeld's Miu Miu Deal 'Feels Appropriate'
Hailee Steinfeld proved she was confident with her place in the fashion world when she inked a deal as the new face of Miu Miu, and though she’s only 14 years old, the actress, who has been known to wear a slew of top designers on the red carpet, says her work with the brand suits her (and the Miu Miu audience) quite well. “Honestly I think the best part about this collection and the campaign is the fact that it’s so sophisticated — it’s timeless,” she recently told Fashionista.com. “And I think for younger girls like me it works. It feels appropriate.” And as for how she felt about transitioning from actress to model for the campaign? It was a breeze for the True Grit star! “It’s kind of funny because when I was younger I did a lot of print and then I went more into acting so I had a little déjà vu when I went back to it, doing the whole modeling thing again,” she said. “I had such an amazing time filming, especially working with Bruce Weber.” Steinfeld joins a crop of young new stars who are also lending their fashionable faces to designer campaigns, like 13-year-old Elle Fanning, who was recently announced as the new face of Marc by Marc Jacobs. –Kim Peiffer
