Hailee Steinfeld: 'Prada and Miu Miu are family'

Hailee Steinfeld is going to focus on comfort over high fashion for her upcoming series of concerts.

Actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld cannot thank the brains behind designer brands Prada and Miu Miu enough for introducing her to the world of fashion.

The True Grit star was asked to be the face of a Miu Miu campaign when she was just 14, and five years on, she still has a close relationship with the firm and CEO-and-founder Miuccia Prada.

"It all started when I was invited to their fashion show in Paris," she explained to WWD. "I remember my appreciation for fashion, designers, models and everyone behind a brand, became so much higher knowing how much work goes into a show that lasts for less than five minutes.

"I really feel like the whole Prada and Miu Miu team is family. They introduced me to the real world of fashion, and I’m so appreciative of that."

Despite her love of high fashion, Hailee, 19, will be channelling a different vibe during her upcoming tour to promote her album, Haiz.

"Being on stage, there’s so much you can play around with that you can’t necessarily get away with on a red carpet," she said. "But I’m really going to try to go comfortable because at the end of the day that’s what really matters, and I tend to forget that when I’m wearing really high, high heels."

Haiz is Hailee's first EP and the teen still can't believe how well it's been received by the public.

"It’s been very overwhelming how positive everything has been," she smiled. "My fans have been so genuinely supportive having been with me since my movies and crossing over with me to music. Music has always been a passion and it’s always been a part of the plan to record it and put it out into the world, but I never could have planned the way it’s gone. It’s been so seamless and surreal."

Hailee will be hitting the road in North America this summer (16) for a tour with Meghan Trainor.
