The Fug Girls Survey the Many Looks of True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld, Future Fashion Icon

You can't Google True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld without finding a hundred bloggers — including we two tar-hearted crones — who are sincerely captivated by how darling she is. Even though the 14-year-old Hailee has only been in the spotlight since September, the young Oscar nominee has trod miles of red carpet, always sporting the same cheerful expression and a preternatural stylishness that has eluded a lot of her more seasoned Hollywood colleagues. We can't wait to see what the sophisticated Steinfeld wears at Sunday's Academy Awards — but because we have to, we're whetting our appetites with this slideshow of her wardrobe to date. It's proof that when you have true personal style, even your missteps are going to be interesting. And that a smile is your best accessory.
