Hailee Steinfeld pays homage to Michael Jackson’s style at TV event

Hailee Steinfeld paid homage to Michael Jackson’s style at a Lip Sync Battle event on Thursday night (18Jan18).

The actress and singer stepped out at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for a special live taping of the show, which was held to celebrate the music and legacy of the late popstar.

Hailee rocked up to the event in a black suit from Balmain that was studded with hundreds of crystals, matching the look with a black bodysuit and pointed patent leather Christian Louboutin heels.


She kept her make-up natural, simply opting for a slick of nude lipstick, but styled her hair with a few loose tendrils down the side of her face, like the King of Pop often did.

Taraji P. Henson arrived on the black carpet in shiny black trousers and a sparkly top from Cushnie et Ochs, which she accessorised with simple black sandals, while Orange Is the New Black actress Laverne Cox made a splash in a flowing black gown with hood and sheer skirt, choosing to top off the outfit with a plaited ponytail and one black leather glove.

LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen co-hosted the star-studded bash, with the hip-hop star opting for a classic black suit and white shirt, and pregnant model Chrissy showing off her growing baby bump in a black wrap dress from Redemption that featured a thigh-high split. She complemented her glamorous ensemble with Saint Laurent sandals and jewellery from Bauble Bar.

During the taping, Hailee hit the stage for several performances and sported a sequinned suit with white socks and black shoes for her take on Michael’s hit The Way You Make Me Feel.

While Laverne gave a rendition of Dirty Diana, wowing with some energetic dance moves, and Taraji dazzled the crowd with her take on Beat It.

Neil Patrick Harris performed Smooth Criminal, with the celebrities also joining forces for a group performance of Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.
