Fug, then Fab: Hailee Steinfeld


The little old granny bursting at the seams of my soul REALLY can’t handle a girl Hailee’s age wearing anything even REMOTELY transparent.

I shouldn’t be able to see undergarments, I shouldn’t be wondering what percentage of this thing is lined, and I really shouldn’t be grimacing at what’s happening to her pelvis because my eyes should not BE on her pelvis because she is a fetus. Her pelvis is nobody’s business at this age. Don’t make me do illegal things just by virtue of having eyes, kid. Also, not for nothing: That is not a good jumpsuit. It’s like she’s been seized by creeping vines.

Fortunately, at a different event on the same night, she managed to be interesting in a better way:

I am no good at mixing patterns — I just don’t have the confidence when it comes to my own wardrobe –but this is bright and young and interesting, with cute shoes, and I’m SO much happier with it than with the Lace Scourge up above. This is Young Girl Looks Fun and Polished, rather than Young Girl Is Trussed Up In Jumpsuit That Wishes Gwyneth Paltrow Had Returned Its Calls.

    Hailee Steinfeld, you march yourself back upstairs missy and change into something proper and lined right this minute! I mean it!

      Right? I would never have let her out of the house in that.

        I can see a nude bra and a black short under the lace jumpsuit, which isn’t that bad! Honestly, I got away with showing a lot more than that at her age because my parents let me wear whatever I wanted, but I wasn’t being photographed for the world to see!

          WOW am I grateful for my own parents right now. If they were still alive I would call them and say so.

    I LOVE this skirt!! I think I love the shoes too. I also would have never had the guts to wear the shirt but I’m sure I could have found many, many lovely shirts to wear with it that wouldn’t make me question my sanity all day.

      Tigers & Turquoise! Who knew they would be so good together? I love them too!

    How people decide what is and is not fashionable is a peculiar thing. With that said, I want to know who decided that lace jumpsuits we a “thing”? Has anyone ever looked good in a lace jumpsuit, not to mention a jumpsuit with puffy sleeves? I only have two examples that I can think of (KStew’s and then this monstrosity), but both are pretty horrible.

    I’d say she is too big for her britches but she isn’t – literally that is.

    To my eye, the top and skirt don’t work together, but it’s certainly a Fab by COMPARISON.

    Oh, dear. I’m afraid the pockets in that viney jumpsuit are the thickest lining the dang thing has. The sweater/top in ensemble #2 has writing on it, KEN something, X, Z, and either a kitty or an alien on it. Ahem. I’ll save you some room beside me in my rocker, Granny Heather.

    She looks like a Russian doll in the second outfit. In a good way.

    Nah… don’t like either. I don’t think the mixed patterns work here – something very 80s in a bad way… but the shoes are cute!

    I don’t like either of these but I love her and I am 100% on board with her Romeo and Juliet and also Chuck Bass at Tybalt. So I can forgive these outfits.

    That jumpsuit is just not right for Hailee, but those copper shoes are TO DIE FOR! Come to me!!! The 2nd outfit is cute… I love the skirt and the shoes, especially! She’s so cute!

    I love the first outfit, but it ages her terribly…

    Love the jumpsuit. Think it works. Doesn’t look weird or bad and doesn’t make me feel pervy; it seems to be lined. Second outfit is gives a little vertigo, but I respect it.

    I don’t actually hate the jumpsuit… at all… I guess I should go ahead and come out of the closet as a one-piece lover. Jumpsuits… Rompers… I love ‘em! CANNOT HIDE IT ANY LONGER!

    I actually like the first outfit better, she doesn’t have the fashion cojones to pull off the second one.

    There’s that darned stretch lace again. Will it ever die?

    Are those mirrored gold shoes? Because I need those. I would be willing to wear her entire outfit just to get those shoes.

    More of that tacky stretch lace.
