Hailee Steinfeld Goes Goth at Met Gala in Vera Wang Dress and Platform Boots

When we think of Hailee Steinfeld, we don’t typically think “gothic.” In fact, we usually think “chic,” “feminine” or “sophisticated.” However, the singer and actress surprised us by taking a different approach to this year’s Met Gala honoring Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo.

Though Hailee’s look wasn’t as avant-garde as Kawakubo’s collections, her black micro shorts and long off-the-shoulder, military-inspired jacket did capture the designer’s signature style in a subtle way. The Vera Wang creation, straight from the runway of her Fall 2017 collection, was an ideal tribute to Rei’s aesthetic.
