Hailee Steinfeld says being named as the face of Miu Miu was “really huge”. The 14-year-old actress was recruited by the Italian fashion house in May and admits that only then did she learn about fashion.
She said: “I went from doing press for True Grit and the awards circuit to learning about the different designers and getting to wear them. Miu Miu was one of my favourites – then having the campaign come along was really huge for me. It has been so much fun.”
She admits that she’s enjoying working in the industry so much that she is even considering a career in the future as a fashion blogger. She added in an interview with Fashionista.com: “Fashion has become a big part of my life. I’d like to start blogging about something to do with fashion and then I’d go into a bajillion different things. But yeah, fashion seems like a really great thing to write about.”
Reigning teen blogger Tavi Gevinson should watch out – Hailee may prove to be stiff competition in the blogosphere.
