Hailee Steinfeld attends the 2017 Billboard Music Awards and ELLE Present Women in Music at YouTube Space LA in Los Angeles, California.
Okay, this is another instance of us having such a kneejerk negative reaction to her red carpetry after documenting so many execrable instances of it over the years, that we feel we can’t trust our judgment on this one.
The thing is, this is all very Hailee in a very Balmain kind of way…
But we … don’t actually hate it? Are we over-compensating here; just trying to be nice to send more positive energy out into the universe? Or because we’re tired and want to go watch American Gods screeners and/or Twin Peaks episodes? Or has she worn us down? Are we nuts, or is this, all things considered (like Hailee and Balmain, for starters) coming off sort of not as terrible as it could be
We hate the asymmetry – especially the weird collar/boob detail, but we think the black and the impeccable head styling are doing a lot to tone down the more cray aspects of it. We can’t say we love it, but we don’t feel like yelling at it. Has she won, darlings? Let us know.
