Stunning from head to toe, Hailee Steinfeld wore one of my favorite looks from the Oscars red carpet. I’m certain that the reason I like her overall look is because I am enamored by looks that epitomize an ethereal and edgy aesthetic. Taken alone, this Ralph and Russo dress, which features folds of translucent fabric covered in hand painted flowers, is gorgeous. I love that her styling team opted to leave the dress sheer, rather than line it. The sheerness keeps the dress from being too saccharine, in my opinion. In addition to the sheerness of the dress, a smoky eye and an almost sculptural updo gives the overall look a bit more edge. The result is an ethereal vibe that doesn’t risk resembling a fairy princess costume. Nothing short of styling alchemy.
