WERQ: Hailee Steinfeld in Chanel

Posted on October 31, 2011

Because we like to think of ourselves as Every Starlet’s Kindly Gay Uncles, we just want to reiterate what we’ve long said about Hailee here – and by extension, every other gal under 16 getting free designer clothing thrown at them: now is the time to have fun. Yes, we get that some of you might want to look sexy or grownup or even virginal and pure, but we’re telling you, if you don’t wear goofy shit now, you’re going to regret it when you’re old enough that the wearing of goofy shit can get you diagnosed with dementia.

So with that in mind…

 

Hailee Steinfeld in ChanelHailee Steinfeld attends Chanel Intimate Dinner in LA in head-to-toe Chanel.

You WERQ that goofy cossack mini-dress with hugely puffy sleeves shit, girl! You’re a fabulous little toy soldier! You should wear a hat!

But as your pretend gay uncles, we have to say whatever a “Chanel Intimate Dinner” is, you’re too young for it.

      Oh god, she’s adorable. I want her shoes so badly… This is what happens when goofy shit is done RIGHT.

      How is she attending a ‘Chanel Intimate Dinner’ or repping Miu Miu or anything else for that matter?

      Fashion’s obsession with youth is so odd.

      • http://twitter.com/wednesdaydreams Natalie

        she’s no longer repping Miu Miu anymore though

          I’m aware. That anyone thought it was a good idea to begin with is weird.

      Hee hee!  I dislike this whole look, but your post made me laugh!  So go on girl - WERQ!

      I’m a sucker for poufy sleeves. WERQ it! 

      BTW, I’m still agonizing over your earlier condemnation of Mary Janes, as they are my favorite shoe style. I rock my retro magenta Mary Janes and get tons of compliments on them. We may have a problem, you and I.

        Ditto the Mary Janes angst. I have a high instep that makes my foot literally pop out of practically any pumps without a Mary Jane strap (with very few exceptions). They’re the only heels I can wear for work that let me walk around without mincing around worried they’re about to fall off.

          I have that same problem with foot popping out..may have to try some Mary Janes

          • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

            Oh yes, more high-in-steppers. I’m with you on the MJ’s. I have many and they are my go too unless…and I gotta’ go with TLo on this…it is a dressy occasion. Even my patent leather MJ’s don’t cut it with a low-cut BCBG-Max Azria. Try sling-backs gals – also the best friend of the high-arch.

            • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

              Plus, sling-backs are sexy as hell.

              I love Mary Janes. They’re sexy and cute at the same time. I agree, though, that they don’t work for a dressy occasion. Sometimes they’re best left in the closet.

      • MilaXX

        My sister loves MJ’s too. I hate them I think they make everyone’s legs look thick and heavy.

        I have Mary Janes in black (at least 3 different pairs), gray, brown, white, slate blue, burgundy, red, and I’m probably forgetting about some. I am holding on to them TO THE DEATH!!!

        i too love my mary janes.  sometimes we just have to ignore such comments :)

        I am on the Mary Jane train, as well. When you have narrow heels, dress shoes tend to slip off like a kid wearing her mother’s shoes, so I need the strap for the shoe to stay on. Oh, AND I LOVE THEM. Oh well, I figured I wasn’t as fashionable as I thought.

        I love the MJ too but have grown to really love the retro T-Strap.  They are soo versatile.  You can do some crazy things with T-Straps.

      Wow, she really looks great.  WERQ!

    • Judy_J

      She looks adorable!  Very, very cute look for her and totally age-appropriate.

      I don’t like her eyes heavily ringed with liner, but she’s still a major cutie.

      I don’t like this dress, but this girl can wear anything and make it look good.  She always looks pretty, poised and relaxed and the outfits benefit from her attitude.

      Hate the shoes and really hate the sleeves but the rest of her is awesome so I give it a pass.

      lets just be glad that a chanel intimate dinner probably does not contain the type of videotaped “moments” anya thought best paired w/ the word “intimate.”

      other than that, this dress reminds me incredibly of one i really loved when i was about the exact same age as the abovenoted.

      Goofy shit, but age appropriate goofy shit. 

    • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

      You know what makes her so precious?  It’s the fact that she’s obviously having a ton of fun wearing what she’s wearing and being who she is…a freakin’ TEENAGER!  She isn’t stuck in trout-pout smiles and slutty clothing.  BRAVO!!!

      Cutie-patootie. Also, love that she has a braid woven in her hair, like the 15-year-olds I see at the mall.

    • Anonymous

      I actually like this. :)  I always like that soldier-y bib thing (someone tell me if it has an actual name, m’kay?), and the sleeves are cute for someone her age.  The hem is really goofy…this looks like one of those weird “clearance at Mood” fabrics, because it’s obviously more floaty than it first appears.  I don’t like the hem being so uneven–hikes in front of her thighs and makes it look like a long romper or something.

      LOVE the clutch.

      So many elements potentially to dislike, but somehow it all works. Now that’s fashion! I love her in this. What a cutie.

    • MilaXX

      I like it and think s she looks cute.

      too much eye-makeup.

      Goofy indeed.  When I saw the thumbnail, based on the color and that buttoned placket thing, I thought it was going to be a stiff military type of jacket.  Surprise!  It’s made out of chiffon or something equally wispy.

      I do like her hair and silver nails though.

      I do love this dress, though the collar makes her neck look a little short.  I nitpick – it’s still a WERQ.  But I *hate* that a fourteen-year-old is the face of a fashion brand.  Hate it.

      NEW FORMAT, PLEASE. just switch it up once in a while. ahhhhh! i still love your posts, but i just want to read something new at the bottom of a werq post!

      She looks adorable but I am with you guys on wondering why exactly it is that her Mama feels that she should be attending the Chanel Intimate Dinner. That doesn’t even SOUND like a good idea.

      the second picture is the definition of adorable.

      I agree, big WERQ. But I cannot imagine my 16-year-old daughter going anywhere near that get-up.

      Shouldn’t she be guarding the Wicked Witch of the West’s Castle with the rest of the Winkies?

      They’re going to be pissed she shortened the uniform.

      I wish I’d worn crazy stuff when I was her age.  I tried so hard to look sophisticated that I missed a lot of embarrassing fun!   If you’re in your late 20s, is it too old to recapture your slutty goth phase?

      She is too adorable for words, but that is not her dress. Not at all. I can see Kate Moss in it, maybe 10 years or so ago.

      It would look better if she wore longer boots. And a big, fur Cossack hat would have really made it fun!

       I’m so jealous that she looks so good in that dress. I want her to be wearing a fascinator top hat, because that would really make the outfit. Gaga would understand.

      “Chanel Intimate Dinner” sounds like a euphemism for a pedophile shopping for potential sex slaves over dinner.
