One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
This is a new look for Hailee Steinfeld, and it definitely suits her!
The 16-year-old is featured on the August issue of Company magazine, and not only does she look like a fashion-forward beauty in her yellow leather jacket, she also dishes on her fabulous fashionable life.
On meeting Karl Lagerfeld:
"Oh my god, so cool. He was so, so sweet. It was one of those moments where there were a lot of people around him and it was backstage. I was like, ‘I really want to meet him but if it’s not the right time, it’s okay,’ and I was going back and forth with myself; ‘Am I ready [to meet him]? I don’t think I’m ready’. Then it just happened and he was so sweet and so softly spoken and just really cool. It was a great moment."
On her favorite red carpet look:
On her favorite Met Gala outfit:
"I have to say the dress that I wore to the Met Ball this last year – Donna Karan Atelier – was so much fun. Watching that dress come together was a really cool experience. It’s such a nerve-wracking experience. I have no idea how designers and stylists do it. It’s just crazy. The day of the Met Ball we see the dress for the first time and they’re sewing you into it as you walk out the door."
On her personal style:
"I really love to just play around. I don’t really have a specific style. It depends on the day for me and that’s what I so love about fashion because it’s really a way of expressing yourself or how you feel on that particular day or in that moment."
Awwww all this fashion insight makes us love her even more!
What a darling. Anxiously waiting for the full spread to surface!!
