C California Style Magazine is a nationally circulated lifestyle magazine based in Santa Monica, California, which showcases California's refined way of life through a wide range of lenses, from fashion and fine art to home design and travel. Mixing unrivaled expert service information about shops, restaurants and exhibits with in-depth feature profiles of California's most influential figures and lavish homes, each issue of C takes the reader on a lush insider’s tour of the Golden State. Hailee Steinfeld appeared in C California Style Magazine in September 2014.
The performance earned Steinfeld an Oscar nod, and was the creative turning point directly responsible for her hefty upcoming slate: She stars alongside Brit Marling in The Keeping Room, an indie thriller, which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival in September, followed by Pitch Perfect II scheduled for a May release. Then there is the coming-of-age drama Ten Thousand Saints with Ethan Hawke, the action-adventure-comedy Barely Lethal with Jessica Alba, the action thriller Term Life with Vince Vaughn, and the American Western drama The Homesman with Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. Given Steinfeld’s workload, it’s not surprising that she’s gasping for air.
“The world went on without me,” she says. “I need my friends to fill in the gaps, my dad to take me on bike rides and my mom to steal my shoes!” The innocent, devoutly normal wish list has an ever-so-slightly jarring effect, and not just because starlets of Steinfeld’s age tend to be grouped into black-and-white categories—the ones falling out of limos and marked for off-the-rails watch, and the ones who aren’t. Her groundedness is noteworthy for its extra-wholesome quality. This is a girl who loves to clock some “me” time in her bedroom (which she characterizes as the color of Neapolitan ice cream), whose current to-do list contains items such as “investigate YogaGlo” and “work on Pinterest mood board”—the latter of which is filled with decidedly timeless and upstanding muses: Kate Middleton, Jackie O. and Grace Kelly. “I love how fashion history repeats itself,” she says. “How the same styles re-emerge in different incarnations.”
