Hailee Steinfeld: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

If we were still in our teenage years, we would definitely want to be best friends with actress Hailee Steinfeld. She captured everyone’s attention with her performance in "True Grit" -- which earned her an Academy Award and BAFTA Award nomination -- but it's the Los Angeles native's red carpet style that's really made us notice.

It’s tricky to dress a teenager in age-appropriate yet fashionable ensembles, but Steinfeld has managed to pull it off every time. The former face of Miu Miu who's worn ruffly frocks, striped mermaid dresses and a swan screen-printed number has made all the best-dressed lists this year.

See more of Steinfeld’s looks in the gallery below as the starlet celebrates her 15th birthday this Sunday.
