All Hail Hailee

Name: Hailee Steinfeld

Age: 16

Hometown: Los Angeles

How you know her: At 14 years old, she was Oscar nominated for her role as Mattie Ross in Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit (2010), and she portrays Juliet in Carlo Carlei's Romeo & Juliet, in theaters now.

Upcoming projects: She will play outcast Petra Arkanian (one of the few girls at the Battle School military academy) in Gavin Hood's sci-fi Ender's Game, out November 1.

First Chanel piece: "I wore a pair of black patent leather, steel-toe boots to a Chanel dinner in L.A. last October, and I actually got to keep them. They are a prized possession."

On Coco Chanel's apartment: "I visited her apartment a few months ago when I was filming Three Days to Kill [out February 14] in Paris. She had two of everything, and it was all so perfectly placed. I came home and redid my room with memories of that in my mind."

On prepping for Ender's Game: "We went to a military boot camp and a space camp in Alabama. It was the most physical training I have ever done to prepare for a role. We would have competitions between me and the guys."
