Love It or Hate It? Hailee Steinfeld at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week
Hailee Steinfeld pulled out all the fashion stops at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! What do you think of her look? Weigh in here!
Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is currently in full swing, and my goodness, the fashion! It is marvelous!… and sometimes confusing. But that’s the fun of haute couture, is it not? The runway models aren’t the only ones who have been pulling out all the stops, though; celebrities have been flocking from far and wide to the City of Light, too, and they’ve gotten all dolled up for the occasion while they’re at it.
Take Hailee Steinfeld, for instance. The True Grit star, looking all sophisticated and worldly, donned this ensemble for the Chanel show held at the Grand Palais on Tuesday. What do you think, Bettys? Love it or hate it?
I’ve got to say, I’m… not wild about it, mostly because it’s just so BUSY. Between the leather pencil skirt, the plaid coat, the neon yellow clutch, and the rakish hat, there’s just a little bit too much going on here. Remember Dania Ramirez’s everything-but-the-kitchen-sink look from the Wreck-It Ralph premiere? It’s kind of like that: Trend overload. Hailee’s mixture of plaid and neon is also making me go cross-eyed.
That said, though, I love her beauty look—the dramatic smoky eye draws attention to her exotic eye shape, while everything else stays simple enough to let her fresh-faced youth shine through (she IS only 16, after all). And hey, if you’re going to be a cutting-edge fashionista, you’ve got to be willing to take risks. Not all of them will pay off—this one, for example—but points for trying. Generally Hailee makes stunning fashion choices, so we’ll let her off the hook for this one.
