“Hailee looked wonderful Sunday night, and the Disc Clutch was a great complement to her Stella McCartney jumpsuit. The Disc Clutch’s clean look went well with the lines of the rest of her outfit.”

Steinfeld was styled for Sunday’s televised event by celebrity stylist Karla Welch, according to a previous report via the Business Wire. She previously wore Jill Milan to Vanity Fair‘s Oscar party earlier this year.

Hailee Steinfeld is best known for her role of Mattie Ross in the 2010 film True Grit. But now, she’s becoming known for her sexy new single, “Love Myself.” Fans have wondered if Hailee’s song is a self-pleasuring album. With lyrics like “I’m gonna touch the pain away,” and “The beautiful, it comes with you.”

The actress has been coy about what the song really means. During her interview with PopJustice, Steinfeld says that the sexually suggestive lyrics have more than one meaning. Call it a double entendre, if you will.

“Well, the lyrics are subject to the listener so it ‘s up to their interpretation. But for me it’s an empowerment record and it’s ultimately about taking care of yourself and indulging yourself, whether that be emotionally or physically or with material things. It just shows how much power there is in being able to provide for yourself.”

Hailee also released a new music video to accompany the single. The video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, shows Hailee wearing sexy clothes as she dances on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles. She also dances with some of her fans in the busy side streets. Davis explained to E! News the message behind Hailee’s music video and sex-powered anthem.

“The rest of the video is a social message, so to speak, of this really cool mirrored cube that we’re placing in different locations all around the city. On the sides of the box, it says #LoveMyself in different cool fonts and it’s kind of like a really cool social experiment… it’s fun to get different reactions, how they react when they read the words ‘love myself.’ “
