Hailee Steinfeld has been announced as the winner of MaxMara's Face of the Future award.
The 16-year-old actress was announced as the recipient of the brand's annual Women in Film prize last night.
This morning Hailee sat front row at the designer label's Fall/Winter 13 show in Milan to mark the occasion.
The award recognises a star who has achieved outstanding performances in the acting profession while also maintaining stand-out style.
"[A star who is] experiencing a turning point in her career, [coupled with] an embodiment of style and grace," the official award criteria states.
Hailee will be presented with the title at the 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards on June 12.
The young fashionista follows previous recipients of the award that include Katie Holmes and Emily Blunt.
Hailee rose to fame in 2010 after starring alongside Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges in the modern remake of True Grit.
Her 2013 projects include a remake of Romeo and Juliet starring alongside Douglas Booth and adventure film Ender's Game.
Her fashion credentials include wearing a Louis Vuitton dress to her 16th birthday party at the Rolling Stone Restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard.
Hailee graced the cover of the March 2013 edition of FASHION and in the accompanying interview she spoke about another designer who had caught her eye.
“I love Prabal Gurung, so he’s always an option,” Hailee revealed. “I remember sitting in the front row to watch his show at fashion week and the music came on and all these gorgeous clothes had such a message. All these strong-willed women- holding their own - walking down his runway looked as gorgeous as ever. I walked away feeling like that’s what I’d feel like when I would put his clothes on.”
