een Vogue traditionally celebrates Younge
Hollywood in our October issue, and this
year (our tenth!) photographer Daniel
Jackson and stylist Tony Irvine had the
brilliant idea of riffing on famous horror flicks
in our portfolio of rising talent. We had so much
fun culling classic movie references, ranging
from the terrorized Hitchcock heroines of The
Birds ands Psycho to the adorably freaky goths of
Beetlejuice ande The Addams Family. I hope the
resulting photos inspire you to explore the
Steinfeld—Oscar nominee, majorly chic
clotheshorse, and all-around awesome person—
is fronting this issue (“Haileewood,” page 118).
If anyone can claim to represent the future of
Hollywood, it’s Hailee, who has leading roles this
year in both the long-awaited Ender’s Game ande
the eternally reimagined Romeo & Juliet. She’s
got serious acting chops (Netflix 2010’s True Grit
for proof!) and serious style.
She’s our kind of star.

Each year more than 1,000 college

Get the lowdown on Teen Vogue’s
cover shoot with Hailee Steinfeld.
n a scorching May day in the Mojave Desert, 240 miles from
Tinseltown, Hailee Steinfeld was ready to rock her first-
ever Teen Vogue cover shoot. Even inclement weather
(sandstorm and all!) couldn’t keep the actress from dancing and
singing on set to her favorite album, Bruno Mars’s Unorthodox
Jukebox, or from being remarkably sweet to our crew. “I’ve dreamt
of being on the cover of Teen Vogue forever,” Hailee gushed. “My
very first photo shoot was for Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood
portfolio [in October 2010, left], and to be on the cover three years
later is unreal.” Supernova photographer Sebastian Kim and stylist
Havana Laffitte created the feeling of a glamorous starlet on a
movie set—a perfect fit for our annual Young Hollywood issue
and its giddy graduate.
SKY’S THE LIMIT

Armani dress. Janis by Janis Savitt

he desert is typically not a
girl’s best friend when it
comes to beauty. But as this
month’s unstoppable cover
star knows, in showbiz, the shoot
must go on. And Hailee’s beauty
team prepared accordingly.
“I went through at least one full
can of hairspray,” says hairstylist Chi
Wong of the tempestuous condi-
tions. “I was literally standing right
beside her during each shot to keep
her hair down!” Luckily for Wong,
Hailee’s mane was easy to tame. “She
has such lovely long hair,” he says.
“She does an olive oil treatment once
a week, so it’s supershiny.” But even
the healthiest hair needs a little help,
so Wong spritzed Bumble and
Bumble Prep spray before adding
eight pumps of the brand’s thicken-
ing mousse for Hailee’s blow-dry.
Makeup pro Yumi went for a
soft look with a pinch of cream
blush. “I wanted to keep things really
hydrated to go with her dewy
complexion,” she says. It was a fresh
take on Old Hollywood beauty. As
Wong points out about our young
cover girl, “Hailee has that timeless
quality.” It’s a good thing, too: We
have a feeling she’s here to stay.

This month we took a trip to the dark side.
Of cinema, that is. With thirteen of the most
talented and talked-about new actors and
actresses on our hands, we wanted to do
something a little bit out there—and totally
transformative—for our Young Hollywood
portfolio. We drew inspiration from timeless
horror flicks and shot the fearless budding stars
in two equally terrifying locations: Los Angeles’s
deserted Linda Vista Community Hospital and
the Psycho house on the Universal Studios
back lot. The result? A shriek-inducing fourteen-
page story that’s guaranteed to keep you on the
edge of your seat, much like the beloved
movies that influenced it. Turn to page 104 to

This month, British fashion photographer Daniel Jackson
made his way to Los Angeles to capture Tinseltown’s most
impressive new stars for “Fright Night,” our Young Holly-
wood portfolio. “We had amazing locations for this story,” he
says. “I especially loved shooting at Universal Studios.” The
longtime Teen Vogue lensman says that finding success ine
the industry wasn’t about catching one big break. Instead,
he explains, “there were lots of little breaks along the
way”—from assisting renowned fashion photographer
David Sims to shooting campaigns for Hugo Boss, H&M,
and Helmut Lang.
It’s clear that by now
Daniel is a seasoned
vet when it comes to
getting the shot. So
what’s his expert
advice for blossom-
It’s simple: “Shoot as
much as you can.”

model turned actress Agyness Deyn to be the
face of her quirky yet polished fall 2013 Dr.
Martens line—a dream first job. “I wanted
someone who embodied the fun and youthful
spirit of the collection,” explains Agyness, who
reveled in being behind the scenes after twelve
years of being in front of the camera. “Grace is
full of life—and a bit crazy. She reminded me of
a Tim Burton character!”
It seems like a preordained match,
considering Grace and her entire family have
their own legacy with the English heritage
brand. “My auntie owns about 25 pairs of
Docs, and my dad wore them on his wedding
day,” says Grace, who, coincidentally, had an
almost-encounter with Agyness as a tween.
“I saw her in Selfridges department store with
my sister!” she says. “We were a little bit
starstruck and pondered asking for a picture.”
Now, not only has she got her picture—
and a hefty head start in the fashion biz—but
Grace, who spends her spare time cooking
and baking (“Sometimes it doesn’t go down
so well,” she says with a laugh), has the
ultimate modeling mentor. “Agyness has given
me tips, and a few weeks after the shoot she
sent me cupcakes!” she exclaims. So what
does the veteran predict for her apprentice?
“She’s a natural, and I think she’s going to do
really great,” Agyness declares. A pretty
sweet stamp of approval.

In the sixties, Jackie Kennedy stepped out in Marime-

recently, the house collaborated with sneaker giant
Converse. Marimekko is a national institution in
Helsinki, where the company was founded.

raindrops, and umbrellas are bedecked with flowers.
My first order of business is visiting the Marimekko
headquarters. The airy, open space houses the designers
as well as the machines on which the textiles are created.
It’s a virtual eruption of color—here a stripe, there a
geometric block party. After a quick tour and lunch at the
Marimekko cafeteria (where everything from the dishes
to the tablecloths is stamped in a delicious array of the
house’s prints), we set out to Senate Square, Helsinki
Central Station, Market Square, and other local sites.
Despite the dreary weather, Emmi is the picture
of sunshine (not to mention graceful athleticism). In
fact, standing beside her in my tailored trench coat and
black leggings—heretofore classic staples in my
wardrobe—I feel rather dreary
and wrong. If fashion can act
as a mood enhancer, Marime-
kko may just be its Prozac. The
following day, when the house
stages its fashion show in
Esplanade Park, the clouds lift
and the sun shines through. In
23 years of holding the show, I
am told, it has rained only once.
No wonder the tens of thousands
who attend—myself included—

all-American denim label with
a famed French textile mill
known for its coutureworthy fabrics?
Your new go-to jeans are born. In
distinctive metallic hues, the four-piece
collection from 7 For All Mankind and
Malhia Kent takes your basic blues to the
next level. To test-drive the collabora-
tion, we enlisted fourteen-year-old Arrow

photographer Autumn de Wilde, to play
model for a day. Luckily, the dress-up
game comes second nature to the quirky
teen. Growing up, she hit the babysitter
jackpot with Kate and Laura Mulleavy (the
sister design duo behind Rodarte). “They
would bring me vintage dresses for tea
parties and take me to buy stickers and
milk shakes,” says Arrow. “They made
everything seem so magical!” Now she’s
taken one of her favorite pastimes online
with her blog thesundaysisters.com, for
which she and her friend Emma sport
themed outfits and post their photos.
Although the denim collection was a
departure from Arrow’s typical wardrobe
of breezy dresses, she was, as always,
game to try a new look. “Playing pretend
is more fun than sticking to one style!”
she says. And when a dress-up option
happens to be a superchic collab? Well,

he last time I saw Katy Perry, it was raining glitter. She was onstage during her
California Dreams tour, and I was swimming in a sea of teens in full-on, arms-in-
air, dance-party mode. Katy seemed almost superhuman up there: the sparkly
Candy Land–inspired set, the over-the-top costumes, the rainbow-colored hair,
and, of course, that powerhouse voice.
But when we meet in person, I find her remarkably ... normal. It’s just four
hours before the global launch event for Katy’s third fragrance, Killer Queen, and I’ve
been whisked into an airy suite in Manhattan’s The Mark hotel, where the Moschino-
clad superstar awaits. Like a bubbly girlfriend you haven’t seen in a while, she greets
me with a warm embrace and even compliments my outfit. “I love this whole bit!”
Katy says sassily, wagging her finger in a figure eight. She is at once charming and
sincere, kind and strong, bewitchingly beautiful and Cali-girl cool—an unusual mix
of traits for a star of her caliber.
or the “Roar” singer, who grew up as the middle
child in a conservative Christian household in
Santa Barbara, California, attention-grabbing
fashion and beauty looks have always been her way
of standing out. Katy’s fragrance obsession, on the
other hand? That runs in the family.
“I got my love for fragrance from my father. He is the
king of cologne! It’s the only thing he ever wanted for
Christmas,” she recalls with a smile. “When we were
growing up we didn’t have a lot, so we would all pitch
in for one bottle of cologne that would last all year.”
Eight multiplatinum hits later, she says, “When he
turned 65, I got him a basketful of 65 fragrances.”
As for her own growing collection of signature
scents, “I try to make things that are special,” she says,
lifting up her latest creation, a ruby red, jewel-shaped
bottle. While the notion of celebrity scents isn’t exactly
novel, it’s clear that for Katy, this project was particularly
personal. “I was painfully, excruciatingly involved,” she
remarks on creating the warm blend of wild berries and
“So what exactly is a killer queen?”s
I ask. “A powerful, beautiful womanA —that
was kind of the woman I wanted to be
when I was fifteen and heard the song,”
she responds thoughtfully, referencing

Queen that inspired the fragrance’s name.

am now.” —ELAINEWELTEROTH

he main thing you need to know about Hailee
Steinfeld is that she’s just like you. No, really.
You might actually be disappointed by the lack
of pretension and diva tantrums you’d expect
from a Hollywood starlet who went from
landing a Kmart commercial at twelve to landing an
Oscar nomination for her first film, True Grit (beating out
a mere 15,000 girls for the part), and becoming the face of
Miu Miu two years later. You might expect a Veruca Salt
antic or two from someone who jets around the world,
has designers champing at the bit to dress her, and has
Taylor Swift on speed dial. Because, let’s face it, you
never know what to expect when the meteoric rise of a
child star blasts her into the surreal life before she’s even
able to drive herself to the mall. This is not the case for
Maybe I’m just jaded or even primed to believe
it’s inevitable for an actress with burgeoning
fame to evolve, or perhaps more likely
unravel, into a Tinseltown terror as her
limelight wattage increases. So when I
show up at The Peninsula hotel in New
York City to rendezvous with my old pal
(disclaimer: I’ve known the actress for years), I
wonder, Could this be the time when our girl
next door takes a turn for the worse?
Hailee greets me with an immediate,
giant grin and a family-style hug. Clad in
J Brand skinny jeans, a crisp white button-
down, and a Rag Bone tweed jacket,
she ushers me into her suite, kicking off
her Chanel ballet flats as if they’re
Chuck Taylors and practically
jumping onto the sitting area’s
oversize couch. She makes the
midtown living room feel as
casual as your parents’ basement.
My fears are instantly put to rest.

erhaps it’s because Hailee, who compares her
acting career to her friends going to soccer
practice, has never seemed like a child star to
begin with. And if you were to put her in that
category, she evokes more of a young Natalie
Portman, Diane Lane, or Jodie Foster than a teen tabloid
fixture. “Whether I’m a bit of an old soul or not, I am who I
am, and that doesn’t change, whether I’m with adults or
with my friends,” she declares in a sturdy, self-assured
manner that exhibits just how easily she can go up against
such silver-screen veterans as Keira Knightley in Can a
Song Save Your Life? (“She is so sweet and humble—the
same person you see in
public. I really look up to
that,” Hailee says of the
established actress) and
Jeff Bridges in True Grit.
“When I’m in this adult
world, I get to play
dress-up and be a big girl
and meet older people,”
says the star, who, on the
other hand, likes to let
loose with her friends on
shopping trips, during
impromptu Bruno Mars
dance parties, and while
cheering on her profes-
brother, Griffin Steinfeld,
nineteen. “It’s the best of
That couldn’t be
a more appropriate
sentiment for today, as
Hailee devilishly suggests
ordering our own
buffet of French fries and
chocolate cupcakes just a
few hours before she’s due to present at the CFDA Fashion
Awards in a stunning two-piece Suno outfit, which hangs
on a picture frame in the hotel room and watches over us
like some sort of sartorial chaperone. “I get nervous for
pretty much everything I do,” she says about tonight’s
event. And then quickly: “That makes me sound like a
poodle!” She laughs, completely self-aware.
Those jitters were so masterfully hidden in her
natural, whip smart, star-is-born performance as Mattie
Ross in 2010’s True Grit that people are still talking about it
to this day. The worldwide acclaim led to an Oscar nod,
pitting Hailee against such esteemed drama queens as
Helena Bonham Carter and Amy Adams, something she
confesses “was too exciting and overwhelming to even
think about.” Hailee may not have walked away with the
trophy, but she did solidify herself as a Hollywood
heavyweight, setting a pretty high bar for her then-
When the flashbulbs and camera snaps tapered,
she avoided a slew of offers that weren’t right, resisting
the typical temptation to take advantage of her own early
success. Instead, she waited patiently for the perfect
project. “I had about a year off,” she remembers. “It was
weird—I would wake up and say, ‘What do I do with
myself?’” But finally the right thing did come along: the
Romeo Juliet, helmed by Downton Abbey creator
Julian Fellowes. And if it
could possibly get better
than landing the dream

Helsinki, she also had

recalls as she bites into a

chance to get to know
him before shooting the
iconic love story, which
includes an on-screen
kiss (“It was definitely
weird to have an audi-
ence that included my
mom,” she giggles),
made things surprisingly easier. “It was one of the best
elements of our film. The whole story happens over the
course of just a few days, and we played along with that.
It was very truthful,” she reveals.
Hailee also earned major extra-credit points while
shooting. “I was actually reading the play in school at the
same time,” she says. It’s a bizarre, only-in-the-movies kind
of crossroads—both her megastar and regular selves
converging over, of all things, homework. “The dialogue
was a huge challenge,” says the diligent student. “It’s
basically learning another language. I really wanted to
make Juliet more than just a damsel in distress.”

Once a junkie’s drug, heroin has taken
hold in schools across the country,
offering teens a hard-core high for the
cost of $10—and sometimes their lives.
Teen Vogue investigates.
Now popular in
capsule form, heroin
is more appealing to
teens than ever.
More than 100 years after
its creation, the drug
continues to wreak havoc.

justthat wewere getting calls about heroin—we were get-
tingcalls about heroinand teens speciﬁcally,” he says. “It
became clear that this was a problem in some of the best
highschools in the area. Public, private, mostof them.”
By 2010, the year Andrew died, the number of calls about
heroin had exploded. “The thing that was most startling was
the average age of the deathsfrom heroinoverdoses,” says
St. Louis County police chief Tim Fitch. “Historically the age
for most heroin deaths has been in the 40-to-45 range. But
now the average age is between eighteen and 25.”
For some, heroin abuse starts even earlier. At fourteen,
Emily*was a highschool freshmanwho had justmadethe
varsity cheerleading squad. By ﬁfteen, she was a regular
heroin user. Despite her habit, Emily was able to maintain
a facade at school, getting good grades and staying out of
trouble. “It was like I was leading a double life,”she says. “I
thought, Maybe this is my little secret, and it’s not as bad as
everyone says it is.”
At ﬁrst, she did it only on weekends with a friend of a
friend’s older brother. He would provide the drug for free
but quickly began pressuring her to have sex with him.
Eventually she caved. “I slept with him because I felt like he
was giving something to me, so I had to give something to

She doesn’t sound dangerous, especially when everyone from Miley to Madonna
seems to drop casual references in songs and in concerts. It may be part of the
reason teens are so willing to trust the popular new drug with a girl-next-door name.
Molly, short for “molecule,” is a powdered form of MDMA. It’s known as “a purer
form of Ecstasy,” says seventeen-year-old Virginia native Amanda* of the substance’s
appeal among her friends. “It’s supposed to be a clean, happy feeling.” And clearly
Amanda’s friends aren’t alone. According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use
and Health,12.4 percent of Americans between the ages of eighteen and 25 had
experimented with MDMA, and that number is believed to be rising all the time.
But the drug’s “clean” reputation is stained with messy consequences. Casey*,
seventeen, from Texas, recalls a friend having “delusional thoughts on Molly. She
felt like she had rats climbing all over her body and called herself an ambulance.”
Nineteen-year-old Samantha* of California remembers the ﬁrst time her friends
experimented, having purchased Molly from “kind of a sketchy person. Everyone
who took it was throwing up all night.” These girls are three of thousands who have
seen the damage Molly can do: Between 2004 and 2009 the Drug Abuse Warning
Network tracked a shocking 123 percent increase in the number of emergency
room visits involving MDMA.
A triple-digit boost means the drug is becoming more widely and easily
available. “It’s pretty standard at Coachella,” Samantha says of Molly’s prevalence
in concert culture. “Everyone wants to try it.” Just a month before press time, that’s
exactly what attendees at the Paradiso Festival near Seattle did—and dozens of them
were hospitalized, many for suspected overdoses.
Why is the drug so dangerous? It’s partly because Molly isn’t always so pure.
When a 2011 police raid in Syracuse, New York, turned up more than $500,000 worth
of the drug, none of it contained MDMA. And in 2012, when Miami police examined
337 samples, more than 80 percent tested positive for a chemical commonly found
in the drug bath salts. Anyone who consumed those samples would have discovered
that such chemical cocktails—which you never know if you’re going to get—could
lead to a slew of scary outcomes, like multiple-organ failure and death.
“My friends think they can’t have fun unless they’re on Molly,” says Tamara, 21,
from New York. “The problem is, you can only guess who made it or what it’s made
from.” And when it comes to life or death, guessing just doesn’t cut it. —JULIE BOGEN
