Hailee Seinfeld has been making her rounds at the shows this season and one of the first shows she was spotted at was Peter Som's S/S13 show. For the occasion the actress opted for this green lace dress and black heels.
While the look isn't particularly bad, I can't help but feel disappointed. Steinfeld's outfits on the red carpet have always been so spot on so it's a shame to see her hit a dull note at fashion week, especially as I'm sure that many brands are watching her with the idea of bagging her for a campaign.
Hailee Steinfeld is amongst a handful of young actresses in Hollywood that manage to tread the delicate line of embracing key pieces from the big brands whilst also looking age appropriate and this look is a case in point.
To attend the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards the 14 year-old chose this white and gold look from Prabal Gurung's Fall 2012 collection. The gold floral detailing of the top perfectly counteracts the more mature look of the trousers.
Britain's Advertising Standards Agency has been on a roll recently. Last year Miu Miu's Hailee Steinfeld campaign was criticised for being irresponsible and the 'Oh Lola!' Marc Jacobs campaign starring Dakota Fanning was also subject to attack. Today, L'Oreal are the latest company to be under fire by the organisation.
The Revitalift Repair 10 campaign starring Rachel Weisz has been banished after Liberal Democratic politician Jo Swinson made a complaint arguing that the ads misrepresented the effects of the product, making it appear more effective than it actually is. According to the ASA, the ads had “been altered in a way that substantially changed her complexion to make it appear smoother and more even.
Just when we thought we had seen all that the Spring/Summer 12 campaigns had to offer, today Miu Miu released these images starring Mia Wasikowska. While the casting might surprise you, we had a suspicion that the Australian actress could be working with the brand after she was seated front row at their Spring/Summer 11 show next to Hailee Steinfeld who, of course, became the face of the campaign for that season. While I like Miu Miu for always choosing interesting campaign subjects, this is one of my least favourite campaigns from them.
The big award shows are where style stars are born - fact. 2011 marked the first time that we seriously stood up and paid attention to Jennifer Lawrence. That navy Louis Vuitton gown she wore to the Golden Globes was unconventional but worked, the hot pink Oscar de la Renta dress she wore to the SAG awards definitely made a statement and of course, nobody can forget the red Calvin Klein creation that she wore to the Oscars. Having got it right at all three big awards ceremonies, Lawrence seemed to explode this year and the same is true of Hailee Steinfeld.
With that said, all eyes are on Rooney Mara, Elizabeth Olsen and Felicity Jones for the coming awards. All three got it right in one way or another in 2011 but none have had a big red carpet moment. While Olsen should be the front runner simply because, well, she's an Olsen, my money is on Mara. Her recent choices for the promotional tour of 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' have worked perfectly and her slightly dark and brooding aesthetic makes me think that she'll be brave and do something interesting and different this award season. In the last few weeks she's worn Givenchy twice and something makes me think that Tisci will be the designer of choice for her big Oscar moment and the partnership would make sense. The Tisci for Givenchy woman is always sexy but in a dark romantic way and that's Mara all over.
The UK's Advertising Standards Agency is really going on in on fashion campaigns this month. A fortnight ago they pulled Dakota Fanning's campaign for Marc Jacobs' fragrance, Oh Lola!, and now Miu Miu are in the hot seat for this shot of Hailee Steinfeld sitting on the train track.
The ASA have criticised the brand as "“irresponsible because it depicted a child in an unsafe location,” according to the Telegraph. Prada have since released a statement arguing that the concerns are unwarranted because she “could have easily moved from where she was sitting because she was not restrained in any way.”
We always love Alexa Chung's ad campaigns for Madwell and this latest installment was no different. The first two images from the campaign have dropped showing Chung in soft knitwear, blouses and denim shorts.
Shot in Austin, Texas, the campaign has the same vintage feel as the latest Miu Miu campaign starring Hailee Steinfeld and was inspired by Chung's love of road trip inspired all things "girls in bands".
We have a Monday treat for you. Today the Mulleavy sisters dropped the look book for Rodarte's second collection for Opening Ceremony that is set for an October release. As you would expect, the sisters failed to disappoint. Citing Scandinavia as their inspiration, the duo served up a selection of floaty feminine silhouettes in nudes and pastels,as well as frilly tops teamed with high waisted printed trousers.
The collecion had a feeling of youth about it. Think Love cover stars Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld and you're nearly there. But that's not it. For those of you like me who are fans of all things black, the sisters presented a selection of strong black dressed with sheer panneling for good effect.
