Hailee Steinfeld: Fashion 'Has Become a Big Part of My Life'

She’s all of 14 years old, but Hailee Steinfeld is already more fashion-forward than many of her peers, thanks to her latest gig as the face of Miu Miu.

“Just going from about a year-and-a-half ago, when I was doing the press for True Grit and the awards circuit and learning about the different designers and getting to wear them, and having Miu Miu be one of my favorites — then having something like [the campaign] come along was really huge for me,” Steinfeld tells Fashionista.com. “It’s been an honor.”

The Oscar nominee — who designed her own dress for the big ceremony — did some print modeling in her younger days, and felt right at home behind the camera when working with photographer Bruce Weber. “It has been so much fun,” she says. “I have had such a blast getting to know everyone that works with the brand.”

Because her red carpet experience has exposed her to so many designers, clothes, shoes and accessories, Steinfeld says fashion “has become a big part of my life.” So much, in fact, that she may write about it one day. When asked if she’d ever consider blogging, the actress says, “I’d start with something to do with fashion and then I’d go into a bajillion different things. But yeah, fashion seems like a really great thing to write about.”
