Hailee Steinfeld Is The New Face Of Miu Miu

Fourteen-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld, who frequently wore Miu Miu and Prada on the red carpet during the awards season just ended, has been named the new face of Prada's (slightly) lower-priced line. Steinfeld is to our knowledge the youngest person ever to be featured in the brand's ads; model Lindsay Wixson was the face of the house when she was 15. Past celebrity faces have included Katie Holmes, Kirsten Dunst, Lindsay Lohan. Steinfeld's ads will first appear in August. [TDB, Telegraph]

Hailee Steinfeld Is The New Face Of Miu MiuMondo Guerra has a jewelry line! Everything's priced at $35-$40, and the pieces are made of plexiglass. They're not heavy. "The earrings won't give you saggy lobe," he says. And if you order anything, chances are good it will have been touched by the hands of Mondo himself: "I still live in Denver in my 500-square-foot apartment with my partner, and my studio is probably less than 200 square feet. So it's easier for me to produce this stuff, and everything that I do right now is handled by two other people and me." [The Cut]
Hailee Steinfeld Is The New Face Of Miu MiuTom Hanks and Julia Roberts are on the new cover of W. Hanks tells the magazine, "I told my agents that I wasn't going to play pussies anymore. I was tired of playing, ‘Oh, boo-hoo–I was in love, but oh, boo-hoo-hoo.' There comes an age when you can't do that any more. I wanted to play men instead of boys." Roberts says she too seeks out different roles now. "I think it's called growing up. Light and funny has a more compelling quality when you're younger. But I haven't abandoned the genre: I love falling down; I love Lucille Ball. It's just that a lot of those stories revolve around problems that I can't convincingly portray at this age." [Daily Mail]
  • Puma has done something unusual: it has released an "environmental profit and loss" statement for 2010. The company contracted Price Waterhouse Coopers and the U.K. environmental group Trucost to help it prepare the report, the first stage of which was just released. It calculates Puma's global impact on greenhouse gases and water consumption at a cost of $133 million. That's how much Puma owes mother earth, apparently. The biggest impact came from water-and chemical-intensive cotton and leather production. [WWD]

"At the moment we're casting for twelve aspiring designers," she says, "and basically the show is a behind the scenes look at what it takes to get a brand in the stores. Everyone likes to shop, so it's tapped into the American psyche in that sense, but it's really about what is creatively involved in getting a brand to market." [Racked]

[WWD]
  • Kate Moss went to her hometown — the South London suburb of Croydon — to shoot a Rimmel ad on the roof of a local shopping center. She arrived and left by helicopter, which may be part of the concept of the ad? It's hard to tell. In any case, you really want the Daily Mail's take on this: "she shot the commercial on the roof of Croydon's famous Whitgift shopping centre. The catwalk queen was seen striding across the roof of the Whitgift Centre's multi-storey car park and jumping into a slick black chopper before being lifted over the concrete jungle that is Croydon town centre." Multi-storey. Concrete jungle. Famous shopping center. [Daily Mail]

At $39.95/month, if all of those subscribers paid every month, the company would realize revenues of over $120 million. But you don't have to pay in a given month if you don't like or don't want that month's selection of shoes, so the company's actual revenue is probably a lot lower than that. [TBI]
