Shining Star Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld

Of all the Oscar buzz (stay tuned for the AVENUEinsider’s take on all the gossip, glitz & glam), one of our fave people of the night was True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld.


At the ripe age of 14, Hailee was not only nominated for an Oscar, but she helped design her dress! Steinfeld knew what she wanted to wear: The beaded, full skirt, cream, AH-MAZING Marchesa gown was made based a sketch she drew after she found out she would be attending.


And how age appropriate! At the Vanity Fair party, she even rocked the frock with a pair of red high-top Chuck Taylor’s. Perfect!


Steinfield didn’t end up winning an Oscar, but she certainly won on the red carpet. Talk about a teenage dream…
