Oscars Fug or Fab: Hailee Steinfeld


Real talk: I would be giving this this full Fug treatment if I didn’t think she was so delightful and cute:

Because this is basically what happens when Pilgrims go bad. Actually, I would watch that movie, now that I think about it. Talk to your people, Hailee.

What do you think?

    Make it knee length and different lipstick and I think it would be age appropriate and cool.

  2. jerkygirl

    Whoa. Goth Pilgrim is NOT the look. I would like the bib a lot though, if it wasn’t attached to that dress and WAS on an actual baby.

  3. Lynne

    Trying to find something positive to say and all I can come up with is… she seems very sweet. Bad dress. Bad styling. Time to fire your stylist, girl, and hire whomever is dressing Chloe Moretz.

  4. BrownEyedBetty

    uh. no. In fact, may this inspire a new FUG category: “what was she thinking?”

  5. Esme

    Hilarious; looks exactly like a Pilgrim biker chick.

  6. qwertygirl

    This is…bad. There’s no other word for it.

  7. rebecca

    Love it on her! Might style her a little differently but it is age appropriate without being to sweet. And she tries stuff!

  8. Callie

    I think the top half is quite cool.

  9. Hannah

    I don’t mind it on her, really. It’s obviously not the best she’s ever looked, but I can understand that for a young girl attending the Oscars, it must be pretty daunting, and you can tell she was going for an older look without trying to slut it up (which I hugely appreciate).

    What is up with all the 70′s long dresses with sheer sleeves? First Zoey, then poor Sally Fields, and now Hailee. I am having prom flashbacks. To my older sister’s prom. In 1976.

    When bad dresses happen to good people……………….

  12. chris

    Princess Leia totally going over to the dark/darth side.

  13. Cat

    This is terrible. Hailee is totally adorable, but this dress (and her hair) is awful. If it were a shorter, more fitted skirt I might be more on board. But this Pilgrim biker chic and unlike Kruger (or Blanchett or Swinton), she’s not able to pull this off.

  14. Tiffany

    It looks soooo heavy! And I think the dark raccoon eyes are a bit much for so much black leather. I think if she would have contrasted the dress with lighter/feminine make-up, it would look better. Also, I agree with others that said it might be a bit cuter if it were short.

    Are they remaking The Craft?

  15. mwk

    Probably wasn’t designed to, but it makes me think of a rubber penguin costume.

  16. Charlotte

    Nope. Way too Little Sex Dungeon On The Prairie. (A show I would watch, but probably wouldn’t want Hailee to star in.)

    • Elfrieda

      I totally thought “Little House on the BDSM Prairie” when I saw this. And I would watch, too, but with people who are OLD ENOUGH to be on a show like that.

  17. house mouse

    Lose the bib OR the sleeves OR some of the length, and I might be on board. But this is way too much, and it’s definitely wearing her instead of being worn.

  18. Elle

    An obvious escapee from the House of the Damned. She should be easy for the vampire hunters to spot.

  19. lindsay

    from the chin up: yes

    everything else: HELL NO!

  20. Melly

    Nooooooooooo… Please don’t let her go off track.

  21. Carol

    Yeah this is all kinds of awful.

  22. Sandra

    They’re making The Witch of Blackbird Pond into a movie? Cool!

    • Janice

      They’re going to call it The Witch of the Alberta Oil Tailings Pond.

  23. Cassandra

    This is so ridiculously awful that I love it. I can’t help it.

  24. Ghanimatrix

    How did that conversation with her stylist go exactly? “I’m looking for a bondage-themed tuxedo french maid dress, except somehow overly modest and at least three sizes too big, and can you throw some sheer panels in there too?”

  25. Amy

    It’s not a very nice dress. But she does look lovely in spite of that, what with being so smiley and un-self-conscious for the cameras and all. I think you should probably have an 18 cut off for being mean about people (and maybe more like, um, 35 or something…)

  26. Kate

    The dress is a big fat NO. However, I like how she’s growing into her face = ) I’d love to see more of her hair out of it… But I think she’s playing with fashion, so whatever. This ain’t great, or really even good, but she’s young and blameless, haha.

    Again though, her face (subtract the hanging hair), looks pretty great. She’s going to be quite lovely a a adult too.

  27. fritanga

    Vanessa Hudgens forced her to wear this, just as she forced AnnE H. to wear that heinous Prada. It wasn’t their fault, the pilgrim bib and the nipple darts. HUDGENS made them do it!

  28. Nina

    No way. This looks like it came out of Stevie Nicks’ closet. Far too dramatic and old for Hailee.

  29. Guerra

    Yeah. This is horrible..

  30. Tamburlaine

    If the bib was a different colour – say, bright pink – and the tulle sleeves were removed, I think this might work. She looks lovely, though, despite the dress.

  31. TonyG

    The title of this post should have been “Fuglee Fugfeld.”

  32. Sajorina

    Oh, Honey, NO!

  33. witjunkie

    WHAT – NO

    Replace the white eyelet bib with the same sheer as the sleeves, for a start, and get the faux-suede gussets out of the skirt, making the leather the highlight. Maybe, maybe not.
