Hailee Steinfeld Gives Us Print Envy In ‘ASOS’ Magazine

Hailee Steinfeld stays steady killing it with her style, so seeing her on the cover of ASOS magazine was a total DUH moment. “Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in,” she told the mag. “I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards … It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything. Now it’s become a huge part of my life.” OMG, SAMESIES! I didn’t get into fashion until I was flown out to Paris for MY first show either! JK I have never been “flown” anywhere, unless you count my parents paying for half my flight home for Christmas.

At 16, the former face of Miu Miu makes high fashion look easy. She’s forever rocking the biggest names in the biz and has a keen eye for quirky details. Needless to say, if I can’t pay my rent next month, it’s because I purchased EVERYTHING she’s modeling. On the November cover of the U.K. retailer’s monthly mag, Hailee appears to have stumbled up on a super-sweet rope swing while frolicking in the woods, as you do in your Chelsea ankle boots. Wearing head-to-toe ASOS goods, I suddenly find myself in desperate need of an over-sized color block coat and leopard print pants: two things I would have never paired together on my own, but suddenly makes all the sense in the world.

Inside the magazine, OMG ADORABLE happens. Hailee poses with a puppy, and I am officially dead, dying, bury me in the ground. I mean, I would have bought that red leopard sweater and those textured black printed pants anyways, but now, I might have to buy two of each because the level of cuteness achieved in that photo is rapidly burning a hot, hot fire through my pocket and the only cure is more cowbell outfits. Or … brocade? TBH, I’ve never really gravitated toward that print, much less felt compelled to mix brocades, but now I want ALL THE BROCADE. In teal. Which is a very difficult color to pull off but never mind the details because it looks RULL cute on Hailee.

That’s our Hailee! Taking style risks first so we don’t have to (thus giving us false hope that we can also wear teal). The Romeo and Juliet starlet told ASOS in some behind-the-scenes footage that she really admires Emma Watson’s “classic” and “elegant” fashion choices, but that she considers her own sense of style a chameleonic reflection of her emotions. “I feel like my style’s sort of always changing,” she says. “I love that fashion is such a way of expressing yourself. Getting ready for me is sort of a fun thing. Just putting what I feel into that outfit.”

You can peep the rest of Hailee’s looks and read a full interview with the star when the magazine hits stands at the end of this month—but in the meantime, check out some behind the scenes footage from her ASOS photoshoot in the video below!
