We have a few highlights from Hailee's interview below. For more, check out Fashion magazine!

On fashion designer Prabal Gurung:
"I love Prabal Gurung, so he’s always an option. I remember sitting in the front row to watch his show at fashion week and the music came on and all these gorgeous clothes had such a message. All these strong-willed women—holding their own—walking down his runway looked as gorgeous as ever. I walked away feeling like that’s what I’d feel like when I would put his clothes on."

On working with Keira on "Can a Song Save Your Life":
"It was my first time filming on the streets of New York. It was very overwhelming – the paparazzi were surrounding us everywhere because the crew caught so much attention. I didn’t know how to handle it so I looked at Keira for help. She was just so graceful, so calm and collected."

On staying grounded:
"I think the second I get wrapped up in how to be a role-model, that’s when things may go wrong, At the end of the day after I finish work or school, I go home and I do everything that a normal teenager has to do. I’m really no different."
