Hailee Steinfeld is an Academy Award-nominated actor, pop singer — and next, she'll add host with the most to her already accomplished resume. Hailee Steinfeld will host and perform the 2016 Billboard Women In Music Awards on Dec. 9, according to Billboard.
The 19-year-old is truly the perfect choice to take on this gig. Currently, she stars in the critically-acclaimed teen comedy The Edge of Seventeen, has hit songs like "Starving" and "Love Myself" on the charts, and let's not forget how she earned an Oscar nod at age 13. Her success across multiple industries makes her the perfect candidate to host an event about the contributions of women in entertainment.
The wunderkind hit teen stardom success when she acted alongside Jeff Bridges in the 2010 film True Grit. Her role was a deeply emotional one — not something most young teens could pull off — but Steinfeld managed to not only do so, but also garnered an Oscar nomination for her performance.
She's continued to be prove herself by becoming somewhat of a pop sensation with hits like a popular cover of Pitch Perfect 2's "Spotlight" and her own single "Starving" which recently hit No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Starving (Live From Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve 2017) Song available on the EP Haiz
Hailee Steinfeld totally blew us away with her performance of ‘Starving’ at this year’s ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest.’ The girl was definitely on fire as she helped us all ring in 2017 right.
The flawless Hailee Steinfeld, 20, graced us with her presence at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Dec. 31 as we all prepared to bring on the New Year. And her performance of “Starving” was absolutely amazing! But we had no doubt it would be anything but epic, as Hailee is one of our absolute fave singers and a great choice for the night!
Hailee Steinfeld was an absolute vision during Sunday night's Oscars. The 20-year-old actress stepped onto the red carpet in a seemingly sheer Ralph & Russo couture gown, featuring metallic floral designs, a high neck, a surprise trail of 3-D flowers on the back, and...one minor wardrobe malfunction. Yup. Although it was hard to tell without zooming in, close-up shots make it clear that a seam in the delicate fabric split slightly, creating a rip about an inch long. And despite the minor mishap, the The Edge of Seventeen star took full ownership of it and posed for some seriously fabulous red carpet pictures with a broad smile. Now that's how you handle a fashion mishap.
We're also pretty obsessed with everything else about Hailee's Oscar look. She paired the dress with an updo that looked classic in the front but actually was consisted of two swirly buns on the back of her head. She accessorized her look with diamond stud earrings, a diamond bracelet, a diamond ring, and fierce metallic pink nails. Her makeup was unbelievably on point as well—she boasted strong brows and a light pink lip. Check out her look, including a small rip, below.
