Hailee Steinfeld has plenty of reason to be happy — she was handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld as one of his favorite starlets and asked to appear in Marie Claire's November issue decked out in Chanel!
What a life!
And she's only 16! Which you already knew, but we just wanted to rub it in some more!
Hailee wears beautiful Chanel pieces in the shoot, including a $900 maillot and a striped emerald green dress with mesh overlay, and she also talks about some of her personal experiences with the brand.
Recalling her first ever Chanel piece, she said:
"I wore a pair of black patent leather, steel-toe boots to a Chanel dinner in L.A. last October, and I actually got to keep them. They are a prized possession."
The lucky teen also got to visit Coco Chanel's apartment just like Rihanna and Kristen Stewart before her!
"I visited her apartment a few months ago when I was filming Three Days to Kill [out February 14] in Paris. She had two of everything, and it was all so perfectly placed. I came home and redid my room with memories of that in my mind."
Taking inspiration from one of the greatest of all time!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the shoot in the gallery (below)!
