Issue nº23 / HAILEE STEINFELD X BIL DONOVAN
Academy Award nominee and multi-platinum recording artist Hailee Steinfeld has been on an upward career trajectory since she came to prominence in the Coen brother’s 2010 film True Grit when she was just thirteen. Steinfeld has since gone on to star in numerous film and television projects, and blockbuster franchises, and established herself as a musical artist with her finger on the pulse. For our issue 23 Cover Collaboration we teamed up Hailee with photographer Tatijana Shoan and artist Bil Donovan to create dreamy and inspiring works of art. As part of our collaborative mission, we sought to capture the essence of Hailee Steinfeld, known for her grace, youthfulness, femininity, strength, and undeniable star power. Donovan aimed to encapsulate these qualities through vibrant colors, whimsical shapes, and soft textures. Shoan’s images became the foundation for Donovan's creative journey. The result is a stunning portfolio that represents the culmination of our collaborative efforts—a testament to the artistry and dedication poured into this project.

Photographed by Miranda Penn Turin, Nielsen is as striking today as she was during her heyday, and the beauty opens up about her tumultuous years in Hollywood, how she got her signature look and more.
