Runway Rundown: Hailee Steinfeld Starring in Miu Miu Ads!


While we’re not seeing Hailee Steinfeld on the runways of Paris or Milan, we are seeing her take runway looks straight from a photo shoot into the laps of fashion magazine readers everywhere!  The Academy Award nominee has been named the new spokesmodel for the latest campaign by designer Miu Miu.  Here we can see the ads, starring the fourteen-year-old actress as very serious, sultry, vintage, & downright beautiful!  After recently catching her breakout role as Mattie Ross in True Grit, I was blown away b/c I knew how gorgeously she debuted on the red carpet during last year’s awards season. She’s following in the footsteps of Katie Holmes, Vanessa Paradis, & Kirsten Dunst who have each previously modeled for the brand.

I usually don’t say how much I love muted colors like brown & navy, but I can see how a young girl like her can make these pieces work in her everyday professional life.  Of course, Miu Miu is an expensive brand name, but we can translate the idea of pairing these colors of silhouettes together & confidently stand as Style Darlings! Also, for those of you who don’t know, Miu Miu is a brand derived from the house of Prada.  It’s also a nickname to designer Miuccia Prada.

When I hear Prada, I can’t help but think of young Hailee b/c she has been seen so frequently sporting looks by the designer. She’s such a perfect fit, exuding youth, sophistication, & a modern sensibility when it comes to fashion.  I wish I was so lucky at that age!

First Hailee is wearing a long sleeved shift dress by Miu Miu at the brand’s fashion show.  Next, she sports the swan trend (yes, there is one!) at the 61st Berlin Festival celebrating the premiere of True Grit.  She went for edgy stripes in Prada for the 17th Annual Screen Actor’s Guild Awards (the same dress that Amanda Seyfried wore on the cover of Elle).  Last, she wears a dazzling sequined outfit with a tea-length skirt, & satin pumps to the Orange British Academy Film Awards.  So you see that she is already a trend setter at such a young age.  Keep an eye out for the actress who appears next in a remake of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, as none other than Juliet! To check out more looks from the designer, head to Net-A-Porter, Shop Style, & Neiman Marcus.

Luxury Look-Alikes for Less: Butterfly Rings!


Instead of posting a Darling of the Day, I’m going to take a break from celebrity styling (especially after the fashionably insane SAG coverage I just posted).  I’m so happy to present to you a little shopping fun with a luxury item & its much more affordable look-alike.  And yes, I’ve been groaning about the weather, now that I’m iced-in due to freezing temps, I have the whole internet to myself & a world of style to blog about.  Today’s items came to mind when I learned of Hailee Steinfeld‘s adorable hot pink lips ring by Solange Azagury-Partridge at the recent ceremony.  The actress is nominated for her supporting role in True Grit & critics in the fashion world are even pegging her as the next it-girl as the face of style, picking up where Emma Watson left off since shedding her Harry Potter image. Pack some punch with a bejeweled butterfly ring.  While one is a Couture Candy items for $225, another is $68.00 @Nordstrom, GUESS created one for $28.00 @Macy’s, & the least expensive is just as stylish for $6.80 @Forever21.  Click around to see which is which.  All are definitely fun cocktail rings, but sometimes a Style Darling on a budget can’t always splurge on the big item.  Any of these are perfect for a lunch out with the girls with a crochet cardigan & cuffed jeans, or can be worn with an LBD & hoop earrings for a special occasion!  Happy Styling!
