The breakout star from the Coen Brothers film True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld, is the new face for Prada’s sister line Miu Miu. If the first image seen above is any indication she’s a natural and will be a perfect fit for the label. It’s a long way from her Kmart days let me tell you!
The 14-year-old is seen wearing a printed tea dress with stylish ankle boots. The photo was taken by Bruce Weber and the whole look really pieces together well. From the aforementioned dress and boots to the retro shades and No Trespassing sign we’re given the feeling of a scene from sometime in America’s more fashionable past. The gravel and the train tracks in the background seem to indicate, just like Hailee’s Oscar nominated performance of Mattie Ross, that she is headed somewhere and we should follow just to see what happens.
Hailee’s next role is in another remake, this time it’s Romeo and Juliet with Steinfeld to play the latter while Douglas Booth is cast for the former. Holly Hunter is also set to appear, should be a good one.
