Grammys 2018 Style File: Hailee Steinfeld Tones it Down in Elie Saab and Alexandre Vauthier

Posted on January 30, 2018

Miss Hailee, who never displayed the best style instincts in the world, let alone any sense of restraint, dove headlong into Grammys weekend by … going simple. It was a bit of a shock to us, especially since she managed a breezy sort of elegance with both looks while still serving up the hotness and the attention-seeking that Grammys red carpets tend to value.

Shall we assess? Rhetorical question, of course.

Okay, so. We kinda hate this. The shape of the bodice is awful and none of the (three, so far as we can tell) reds match each other. But the overall style is appealingly simple/sexy in a Studio 54 kind of way. If nothing else, that’s a great skirt for her and would be a perfect starting point for a better ensemble than this one.

But she really made our jaws drop when she showed up for the main event:

She somehow managed a minimalist take that still wound up being a lot of look. We don’t mind it, though. In another instance, we’d opine that sleek white gowns don’t really call for knee-high boots, let alone purple metallic ones. But it’s a rock-and-roll weekend for this gal, who is both a pop singer and a an actress of some acclaim. She threaded the needle perfectly on both roles. If we have any minor disappointment to register, it’s that the look is simply a duplicate of the runway look.
