The world was introduced to Hailee Steinfeld in the Coen Brother’s adaptation of True Grit. She was only 14-years-old at the time. Hailee held her own against acting heavyweight, Jeff Bridges. For that, the Academy rewarded her with her first nomination. As prairie girl, Mattie Ross, Hailee wore braids and collared shirts.

But more recently as Hailee Steinfeld, she wore a metallic trench dress to the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.

And while she can pull any of these looks off flawlessly, we have to admit this trench dress definitely wowed.

Stunning! We love the head-to-toe, metallic number. It’s candy for our eyes! We can hardly believe this super chic goddess once played a gun-toting, horse-riding tag along.

On second thought, Hailee’s outfit is sorta making us nostalgic.

What for?  The good ‘ole days of Carmen Sandiego! Especially since we need to know where in the world she got that look.

Get a load of the similarities. A belted waist! A fitted silhouette! Long, cuffed sleeves! All she’s missing is Carmen’s fabulous hat and gloves.

The similarities extend beyond the look itself. Hailee has lustrous brown hair, and so does Carmen. Hailee has traveled the world for film shoots, film premieres and musical performances while Carmen has traveled the world so that young children could learn about geography.

The two are basically twins.


Hailee shares the same stylists as Lily Collins, another brown-haired, crazy-talented ingénue. Their styling duo, Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, made The Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Most Powerful Stylist list. On Oscar night, the duo put Jessica Biel in a metallic KaufmanFranco and a Tiffany & Co. necklace worth nearly $2 million dollars.

At the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, Hailee Steinfeld, Kelsea Ballerini and Sofia Carson performed a medley of Britney Spears songs in honor of Britney’s first ever Icon Award. They performed “Oops… I Did It Again,” “Til The World Ends,” “…Baby One More Time,” and others.

Wow, Hailee can act, sing, and dance like a total pro. Is there anything she can’t do? We continue to be amazed by her, and can’t wait to see what surprises she has in store for us next.
