When I saw this on the live-feed on Monday night — where Hailee said she thought Avril Lavigne was her favorite punk artist and Teen Vogue’s Andrew Bevan almost choked on his own tongue laughing at her (in a sweet, older-brotherly way) and yelping that AVRIL IS NOT PUNK — I was all, “cute, Hailee. You’re adorbs. Moving on.” And then I took a closer look:
The dress is leather; the star-bursts are made of tiny safety pins. This is adorable, age-appropriate, event-appropriate, and — best of all — smart. Avril wishes.
