Last week, the first image from the Hailee Steinfeld Miu Miu campaign hit the interwebs and was a massive hit. This week, two more images from the ads have leaked and they do not disappoint! The ads, which feature the 14-year-old Academy Award nominee, have a simplistic elegance to them that epitomizes the brand’s values. Shot by the brilliant Bruce Weber and styled by Joe McKenna, the ads have a 1940s ‘Film Noir’ motif and the photos were shot in a backwoods, natural open-air setting.

According to Miuccia, Steinfeld was chosen as the face of the campaign for her "unconventional elegance and her ability to carry off the grown-up and elegant silhouettes with a whiff of forties that made up the fall collection."

Implications - The consumer world is experiencing a retro revolution, and companies are capitalizing on the "everything old is new again" motto. Artists, photographers and interior designers are inspired by styles from a variety of decades and consumers are eager to explore these iconic designs.
