And The Best Dressed Goes To…
Hailee Steinfeld! The young starlet was exquisitely fresh, fun and feminine in a gown from Prada’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection.
In a look that many would have found difficult to wear – vibrant pink, orange and black horizontal stripes – Steinfeld pulled it off in a spectacular fashion. André Leon Talley, of Vogue US, agreed declaring Steinfeld as his best dressed of the night. Of her look he said: “What made it so right for the teenager was the just-out-of-bed tousled hair (the style of the evening) looking so natural on her, deft makeup, and no bling. She didn’t try too hard.”
