Hailee Steinfeld

We're used to fashion icons being of a certain age, but Hailee Steinfeld has already shown she has excellent fashion sense, and she's only 14-years-old. Steinfeld is that phenomenal actress who has compiled a variety of nominations and awards for her performance as Mattie Ross in "True Grit." On February 27, the young actress will learn if she is the winner of Actress in a Supporting Role at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

"Fashion is something I've gotten into these past couple months," said Steinfeld. What will Steinfeld wear to the Oscars? You can bet that her Oscar fashion will surely make the best dressed list based on Steinfeld's past looks.

Berlin Film Festival Premiere of "True Grit"

Hailee wore Miu Miu at the Berlin Film Festival Premiere of "True Grit." The dress is from the Spring/Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection in black, white and green silk with a swan print on the chest. The dress is age appropriate for the teen, but the length adds a touch of sophistication. Hailee paired the dress with black pumps and swept her hair up to reveal more of her fabulous smile.

Santa Barbara Film Festival

Once again, the new Hollywood starlet stole the spotlight in a gorgeous Albert Ferretti cocktail dress in white at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. She wore her hair swept up, and instead of playing it safe with white or black shoes, Hailee made the dress pop with red swede heels and a red clutch bag. Hailee showed off her shapely legs with the outfit, but the young actress has not fallen into the trap of trying to look older than she is or too sexy for her age.

Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon

Another cute dress for Hailee at the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon. The actress wore a black Moschino Cheap and Chic cocktail dress pared with black Aldo shoes. It was more than just a little black dress for Hailee, because the back of the dress included tuxedo detail. Hailee understands that less is more and kept it simple with only a silver bracelet for her jewelry.

BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea

Hailee looked super cute in a Marc Jacobs Scalloped Organza Dress at the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea. Hailee wore the dress in black as opposed to cocoa and wore her long hair in a braided ponytail.

BAFTA Awards

The young ingenue, nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role, went all glamour at the 2011 BAFTA Awards in London. Although the length of the skirt fell just above the ankles and she wore her hair pulled back, the look did not age the actress. Her black Miu Miu black dress included a crystal embroidered bodice with peplum waist. Instead of resorting to a black clutch, Steinfeld carried a lavender one.

The Golden Globes Awards

Steinfeld wore a Parbal Gurung cream gown that put her on Vogue's best dressed list at the Golden Globes. The actress also wore Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. She presented a Golden Globe next to Justin Beiber, but it was Steinfeld who you noticed for her height, style, beauty and sophistication.

SAG Awards

Steinfeld, nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, brought the fun into otherwise typical award show fashion at the SAG Awards. She wore a unique black, orange and pink striped dress with a flounced hem from the Spring 2011 Prada collection. The beautiful brunette's hair down fell in soft waves and she wore pink nail polish. Once again, the actress lets her dress and style speak for itself without a lot of jewelry, other than a fun Solange Azagury-Partridge Hot Lips ring. It was another look for the best dressed list.
