Finding the perfect dress for the Golden Globes isn’t an easy task. Just ask True Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld. “I honestly tried on probably a countless amount of dresses,” the 14-year-old actress told us at the Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles, where she wore a peach one-shoulder mini by Marchesa. “The one I picked [for the Globes] was the last dress I tried on. After you’ve tried on a number of dresses, you don’t even want to put on anymore and you’re so upset by the fact that you haven’t found one. Then I put this one on and I fell in love with the way it fit.” The one that stole her heart? A cream gown by Prabal Gurung (shown), which she accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. “Fashion is something I’ve gotten into these past couple months,” Steinfeld told us. “When I see something that I really like, I just go for it.”
