BEST DRESSED

Hailee Steinfeld Is All Violet

The actress-turned-singer selects a deep purple Vionnet dress (the musical puns are limitless) for the SESAC Pop Music Awards.


Who: Hailee Steinfeld.

When: Monday, April 18.

Where: The SESAC Pop Music Awards in New York City.

What: A violet Vionnet Fall 2016 crêpe de Chine gown.

Why: Though it’s missing the luxurious fur collar that adorned it on the Vionnet runway, Steinfeld’s look is still full of flash. In bright purple, and adorned with images of metronomes, grand pianos, and harps, it doesn’t need much embellishment to demand attention (or to make it perfectly suited to a music awards ceremony — it’s almost too on point). And in light of Prince’s death Thursday, the vivid color feels the perfect homage to the Prince of Pop himself.
