Hailee Steinfeld in Miu Miu

Oh, MISS HAILEE. No, sweetie.

Hailee Steinfeld at Miu Miu Spring 2012 Show

There are those who say we’re nasty bitches for ragging on a 15-year-old’s fashion choices, but to them we say, “Your point?” Besides, she’s a 15-year-old in a very expensive dress that was lent to her by the designer whose fashion show she’s attending in Paris and which is also not coincidentally the designer for which she signed a no-doubt lucrative contract to model their wares. Any comparisons to you at your sophomore dance are simply not valid in our nasty, bitch eyes. She’s still the cutest little thing you ever did see, but we’re sorry; this dress is kind of ugly. And when it’s not ugly, it turns twee. Even a 15-year-old can’t rock a bow that big. And the faux bustier front is clumsy-looking. And then there’s the Silly Putty shoes. Plus the fact that it doesn’t seem to fit her that well. She’s adorable and sweet and all those complimentary things you’re supposed to say about pretty 15-year-olds when you’re ragging on their dress, but we simply can’t support this look in any way. But hey, the purse is really cute.

Go ahead. Tell us how horrible we are.

      I don’t think you’re horrible.  I do think you’re wrong.  I think she looks cute, and I like the wrapped bustier in the front.  I do agree that the bow should have been scaled WAY down.

        My thoughts exactly! You aren’t horrible guys, just wrong, lol! I agree the bow should be smaller, but other than that she looks adorable.

              I agree too! She looks adorable but, yeah, the bow could use some scaling down. You were right about the bag, TLo. That is a very cute bag in a great color!

        I think it’s a cute dress in theory, but the execution, especially that cheap-looking and stiff fabric ruins it.  If the bustier were better fitted and the ivory part was in a floatier fabric, maybe a floral print, but definitely something that doesn’t look like hospital issue bed sheets, the dress might have been really adorable, especially on Hailee, but it isn’t. And that bow made me literally laugh out loud.

        I can understand why she wanted to wear it, but someone should have noticed how cheap it looked and gone with something else.

      TLo don’t feel bad.  She is not the one to blame.  Miu Miu is the one to blame.   What a silly dress for such a cute, smart, talented girl.

        Yes, Miu Miu is to blame.  Giant bows are fine for toddlers, but even that’s pushing it.

      She is adorable. But that bow is scary and if she or her stylist (I hope she has one) doesn’t know better, the designer certainly should have. Also the material seems to wrinkle really easily.  I am ever so happy you didn’t rag on the cute purse. I was ready to leap in and defend that from the first picture. Oh, btw, my prom dress when I was fifteen was way cuter than this.

      She’s cute but that dress is just awful.  Looks like it was designed by my 5 year old granddaughter.  That big-ass bow looks like it was made out of crepe paper.

    • Anonymous

      I think this dress is really cute, except that it looks like it’s made out of bedsheets, which kind of ruins the look.  So whenever PR has their next bedsheet challenge and MK or Nina calls a look “runway-ready” or something, picture this and know they’re lying.

      She looks great and I love her bag. I like the big bow. I think the bow would look better if the bodice on the dress was longer though. I do hate the shoes. Overall, a big IN. And yes I know this is not an In or Out. But I want to say IN and you can’t stop me so there. Nyah.

      Disagree. I think the dress is cute on her. Yea the fabric is a little weird and she could have worn better shoes, but overall I give it a 7/10.

        Me too.  I was scrolling down thinking “what don’t they like … her hair and make up are good, dress is cute and not too old for her, they probably don’t like the silly putty shoes…”  Then I got to the bow and totally get the “no sweetie”.  That bow is clown proportions.  She is still adorable.

        If this was a movie that bow would turn into wings and Hailee would fly away.

      The bow, the shoes and the bodice color are all wrong, but a few tweaks would make this dress really cute. My 15 y/o would wear it IF it were black with an electric blue bodice and the shoes were hot pink (that’s what she said).

      looks like she threw on her tube top after leaving the house in her school uniform so mom doesnt know, poor kid.  however it is age appropriate and not skanky like many teenage girls her age and younger lean towards…. so kudos for that!

    • Anonymous

      Fifteen is certainly old enough; there’s no mercy as far as I’m concerned. The color combination works together very well, but the dress is invisible besides the big sash/bow. It might have looked okay if it was another color besides a cream and if it the reddish pink was picked up somewhere in the hem or collar. It’s like the only thing she is wearing is a giant ribbon around her chest and a purse. Her makeup looks nice & fresh though.

      The proportions on the dress are weird. I love a high waist, but for some reason the high waist just isn’t cutting it for me.

    • http://twitter.com/Kerry_McC Kerry McCombs

      It seems a little too short to me and might be better in a different fabric. I’m definitely not loving it.

      • Anonymous

        I think it may look too short because she’s wearing the wrong shoes — too-high-heeled pumps (in nude yet!). It’s really a pretty modest length, not cootchy — and if a 15-year-old can’t wear short, who can? She’s long-legged and high waisted as well, which makes the dress appear shorter. It’s a nice silhouette for her, but I really don’t like the fabric or color thing either.

    • Jessica Goldstein

      I blame the designer for making this ugly dress. Then the stylist for putting it on Hailee–rumply, ill fitting and all—and matching it with silly putty shoes. I leave Hailee herself out of it; she’s the victim. Thus, you can say all you want with impunity.

      • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.parker Sara Parker

        Completely agree.  Shame on whoever put her in this dress– surely some employee of Miu Miu who was thinking “If an adorable 15 year old can’t wear this dress, no one can!” Of course, the answer is that no one can.

      Not to mention she’s wearing Ma Ingalls’ hair…

      I actually love that dress, but I think the red part on the front looks heavy with how it’s placed, as though it’s dragging her boobs towards her waist.

      First impression: I don’t totally hate it. I think “Alice in Wonderland” when I see it, especially with that Alice blue purse, and that seems fun for a moment. But the longer I consider the bodice, the bow and the shoes, the more I do a WTF head tilt at the screen. I think you got it right, TLo.

      How does one say this delicately?… If she were a little more blossomed up top the dress would probably fit and look much better. Faux bustier on no “bustier” doesn’t work. Bad hair and shoes…. cute girl and purse. 

    • Anonymous

      You guys are horrible.  No, just kidding!  I think the thing that kills the dress for me is the color combo.  It’s so PLAIN with all that white, and that red/pink/wtf is kind of nauseating.  In different colors–maybe a print somewhere, too–and fitting a little better, this would be really cute.

    • Sara__B

      Don’t forget the sister-wife hair and the eyeliner, which are somehow combining to make her look even chubbier-cheeked and younger than she already is. Add the humongous bow (so twee), the bustier and heels (too aging), and it’s a very confusing stew of mixed messages. She  is indeed a cutie, and this dress is not worthy. (Great bag, though.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Heather-Waddell/10401341 Heather Waddell

      The silhouette is really cute on her, and she tends to favor the high neckline/wide straps/full skirt look because it works well on her. And I like the *idea* of the bustier and the oversized bow, but the bodice needed to be fitted better, and the bow is WAY too big. Also, if she was going to go for match shoes she should’ve done something only a young starlet could do and  gone with the orange color. She’s too young and fun to wear such bland colors all the time. The bag, however, is a step in the right direction.

      Even little fashionista’s in training can make mistakes.  But this is more her handlers’ mistake, not hers.

      She’s 15, and sometimes 15 yr olds can’t decide if they should look “twee” or “hooker in training” (what with the orange bustier).

      But her make-up’s good.

      Since she’s made maybe one other slight stumble, I’d cut her a little slack here.

    • Mary McClelland

      No, it’s really horrible. The colors are awkward, it’s made in the style of toddler dresses, but it the weird bustier thing just doesn’t work. It’s wrinkled and ill-fitting as if she decided to wear it last minute and it came straight out of the dress bag. Or it could just be taffeta which is pretty much always a wrinkled mess. The hair is 1885 school marm. And the shoes don’t go on any level. The wrong color, the wrong style, the wrong everything! Poor thing – it’s not her fault.

      Oh T and LO, I am one of those “nasty bitches” who think you should just leave the 15 yr old alone. In particular I don’t like the idea of giving her and IN or an OUT. At her age, even with all her success, kids are just cruel. Perhaps because of her success, even more so.

      Now if she were 22 and walked out in that I’d feel differently. But the little kitten is practically an unborn fawn. (yes of course she is both at once!)

      That being said, in completely contradictory manner I am for some reason comfortable with, I like your critique. Perhaps because you were so gentle and uncle-like. 

      But just remember that her envious enemies eat your critiques and post evil things on their facebook pages that hurt tender 15yr olds no matter how famous. That’s all, princes-of-all-things-fabulous! Be kind to the little young ones in your kingdom.

      • http://www.tomandorenzo.com Tom and Lorenzo

        You need to re-read the post. The only people we called “nasty bitches” were ourselves. And we will continue to not subscribe to any thinking that compares her life with that of the average 15 year old. If she has evil and envious “enemies” ready to tear her down, a post criticizing her dress is hardly going to provide the fodder they need.

          Gotcha Tlo! 
          I should clarify. I’m not saying her life is the same as any average 15 yr old, but that she feels the same as any 15 yr old. Hard time of life emotionally. 
          That being said, I thought your critique was well made. It’s more the idea of everyone commenting on how a 15 yr old girl LOOKS that I don’t care for. Hard at any age, possibly crushing to a 15 yr old. Not everyone is as articulate, balanced and uncle-like as you.

      Her dress is the color of fermenting oatmeal, so I don’t find it all that appealing.  I’m very curious if she has any say in what she wears.  Anyways, she’s 15, not 5, who thought that bow would be a good idea?  It’s one thing if she wore an ugly dress with a ridiculous bow to be ironic, but this is clearly not what is going on here.  Someone thought this look was precious.  Someone was very wrong.

      I actually love the dress, I think the bow makes it JUST this side of appropriate, considering it’s so short. I might prefer a different color, but I like it. I’d hate it if she weren’t 15, but 15 is about right.

      Yes, TLo, you are 100% right, this is awful.  Humongo bow!  Wrinkled dress!  Colors of accessories that don’t match!  Ugh.  Her hair is nice.

      This, my friends, is what an *invisible* zipper looks like. Kind of like a rare bird.

      AHEM… No woman, not even a 15 year old one, ought to wear a bow wider than her @$$.

      Yeah, Hailee, no.

      I think she looks adorable! I agree that the bow should be smaller and I hate the shoes but overall, I think this is super cute.

      I’ll take the purse, thank you. The rest is pure fug. What is with that damned Minnie Mouse bow? Cutest face ever, though.

    • http://profiles.google.com/spandexalii Ali King

      Aw, I don’t think it’s that bad. The bow is a little silly, sure. But it doesn’t bother me. She still looks cute, appropriate, and put together.

      It’s a silly dress, but at least it’s silly in an age-appropriate way.  I really wish she would go back to being 15.  There’s no reason for a girl that age to be at runway shows, or for grown women to take fashion cues from her.

        This is what I was thinking.  Unless you’re Tavi Gevinson, if you’re 15, why are you acting as a designer’s clothes hanger, going to fashion shows, and…well, what jeeplibby said?  Is it just about the money, or what? Why aren’t you hanging out with your friends or riding horses or doing your homework?

        Which sort of answers the question of whether it’s OK for TLo to do the judging thing.  And I think if you put yourself out there and collect a paycheck for it, you’re fair game.

        Which allows me to say that she looks ridiculous in this dress. The bow the size of Idaho, and the ill-fitting bustier.

      yeah, i think you two boys are wrong; she looks adorable, age appropriate, interesting… it’s not boring like the crap the fanning girls mostly come out in (SNORE)

      I don’t really like the dress either, but she looks lovely, and I love the bag, and the contrast of the bag to the orange in the dress.

      I totally agree, both with the bow and the bustier.

      I don’t hate the front, but that bow.  It’s over done.  How cute it could have been with a correct proportion, but that just looks ridiculous. I still give her props, she could look like Taylor Momsen…

    • Anonymous

      But they gave her the dress. OK it’s pretty silly but wasn’t it polite to accept it? And wear it proudly? I’m sure she’s very polite, And her makeup looks wonderful. IN!

      • http://www.tomandorenzo.com Tom and Lorenzo

        Politeness has nothing to do with it. She’s probably contractually obligated to wear it.

      I like it. I’d wear it and probably look ridiculous but… I really like it.  IN

      She’s so cute. I think it’s a great dress for her or anyone else in her age range.And its Miu-Miu like Miu Miu kitty, how cute is that?

    • grouchywif

      Never noticed it before, but she looks like Phoebe Cates (circa FTRH).

    • Anonymous

      I think it would be cute w/o the bustier and bow.  With different shoes.  The bustier looks odd on this.  But at least she’s not trying to look 15 years older than she is.

      OK, I was going to tell you how horrible you are until I saw that bow. As usual, you are right again.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      I think she’s adorable, original and quite apropriated for her age. The dress is fun! In!

    • margaret meyers

      It’s the kind of bright, contrasty, obvious dress that attracts young women.

      I was fine with the dress until I saw the bow.  Love her little purse, though.

      I think there isn’t a single thing right about this look except that she’s an adorable girl, and the purse is okay.  Other than that, it’s about as out as you can get without getting into Paz territory.

      I continue to be incredibly impressed that this 15 year old is not dressing like a hooker.

      So I was iffy on the dress until I saw the bow and now my eyes have exploded

        Yeah, that was my reaction–saw the bow and truly went uhhh and my whole body deflated 3 inches. Do have to agree with Audrey’sMom, however–at least she isn’t dressed like a hooker.

      I might be wrong here, but I think some of the perception of how she looks might be tied to the fact that the kid has gained weight. She certainly looks like she has more pounds than previous times when you have praised her.

      If that is the case, you might want to feel a little guilty.

      • http://www.tomandorenzo.com Tom and Lorenzo

        Yes, we definitely feel guilty because of your imaginary accusation.

        • Anonymous

          I’m sorry but I tried to make a specific point not to accuse.

          • http://www.tomandorenzo.com Tom and Lorenzo

            Then you probably shouldn’t have ended it with “You might want to feel a little guilty.” The fact of the matter is, we said not one word about her body and we don’t even see this supposed weight gain that you (and only you) have brought up.

            • Anonymous

              Ah, I’m sorry. You had said “Go ahead. Tell us how horrible we are.” so I guess I was trying to write my post in that context but when I stated “IF that is the case”, I was trying to emphasize that you, of course, shouldn’t guilty. I wasn’t trying to imply that it WAS the case.

              I apologize for not being clearer. I obviously don’t write for a living.

    • sweetlilvoice

      Horrible but honest! :) And no one should have a bow that big. I wonder how smushed it got when she sat down.

    • Christina Brennan

      I like this dress, too.  It’s a bit wrinkled but otherwise cute and fun.  I also like the pop of color of the handbag.  

    • Anonymous

      The bow is the worst! But from the front, I think she’s darling. Even though the silly putty shoes should take a hike.

      I’m going to be really really mean and confess that I’m getting tired of her already.  Will now go look her up on IMDB and see what she’s up to. 

    • Julie Clark

      i think the hair is the biggest problem here. too matronly.

    • Addicted2Glamour

      LOVE her handbag. And I actually liked the dress until she turned around. From the back it’s very Disney Park Employee uniform.

    • http://twitter.com/karenrubyleo Karen

      I think she looks great, I would the bow right off of it but other than that i think its fab. But you’re right about that bag, its yummy.

    • Anonymous

      What happened?? She always looks so great!
      This dress is just a wrinkled mess. plus it’s ugly. If you’re going to wear an ugly dress, get it steamed so at least it doesn’t look like a schmatta.
      Nothing against the girl; I happen to think she’s a beautiful young lady, but that dress? Oy vey.

    • Anonymous

      Anyone who is old enough to sign a modelling contract is, by definition, old enough to endure criticism of their paid clothing choices. The dress is ugly. And everything else about the look is nearly as bad — purse excepted.

    • Anonymous

      Not horrible at all.  In fact, I agree with you.  She normally looks flawless and age-approriate, but this is just a wrinkled, ill-fitting mess.  The Uber Bow is perhaps a fun wink, wink in theory, but in practice it’s not working. Do like the purse, tho.

    • Anonymous

      The dress looks like a lady giant who wears a lot of lipstick smacked little Hailee on the front with the world’s largest kiss. Which might not be a bad thing, except in this case… Is. And the Nanny McPhee hair doesn’t help the awkward lipstick dress with a butt bow worthy of a 1980s bridesmaid dress.

    • http://twitter.com/hpenfield Hannah Penfield

      I agree, she’s fair game. That being said, I think you’re crazy. I absolutely ADORE everything about this dress, other than the fact that it’s a little wrinkled and needs a good steam.

    • Anonymous

      And it’s wrinkled and pulling all over the place.  She usually gets it right for her age, though, and at least it doesn’t show too much skin.

      I actually didn’t mind the bow, though it could be smaller. I don’t like how the bustier int he front fits. But still, overall she still looks good.

      I wouldn’t have a problem with it if I agreed about it being hiddy. But I don’t agree. If this were an In or Out post, she’d get a full-on IN from me.

      I actually like it! Sorry I think you’re wrong! I love everything except that dumb little loose hair and the rhinestones on her bag.

      Real bustier + no bow = A+

      As is, it’s a D. Sorry hon, but you’re too cute to wear such a fugly dress.

      She gets full marks for looking sweet and happy to be there. 

      However.

      I do not like the beige, the bow, the bag, or the bodice. 
      How’s that for alliteration?

      The dress design is very cute, but bad fabric and execution. Looks like something thrown together on PR.

      I don’t think you’re horrible. The girl inside may be adorable, but the dress she’s wearing is ugly, even clumsy looking. The combination of that cosplay-worthy bow and her sophisticated hair is mind boggling, too.

      as soon as i saw it i loved the dress but then i saw the shoes which are ……frankly horrible and that gigantic bow uhrrrr
      but other than that LOVE the dress
