Sixteen-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld is featured on the cover of the March 2013 issue of Canadian magazine, 'Fashion'.

Hailee on the conversations she had with fellow cast mates of True Grit: “The conversations I had with Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and Jeff Bridges on set totally changed my life… they changed the way I approach acting. It was an incredible education. I kept a journal on set that carried through the first month. We took over 4,000 pictures – I was looking through them last night and I got chills.”

Hailee on the dress she wore to the 2011 Academy Awards: “My Oscar [outfit] started as a wedding dress with a 20-foot train. That was changed. Karla and I looked at it and had drawn a picture of what I had in mind for Marchesa. They worked on it so much and dyed it more than 10 times in different shades of pink until it was the colour I wanted. We ended up literally pinning on the [sheer panel] because my mom didn’t want me to wear strapless. So we built up a dress that was very Audrey Hepburn-esque as I was literally walking out the door. It was nerve-racking but fun.”

Hailee on the future of women in film: “There’s a new generation of women writing great roles and directing. It’s all coming up at once and I just want to be part of it.”
