If you’re looking for the next fashion icon in training, there’s no better place than the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party, the perfect venue for fresh-faced young things to debut some definitive style sense. And while plenty of the attendee’s at this year’s event looked very dashing indeed, there was just one young lady who showed the early glimmers of a true Style Superstar. Who’s the girl we’re pinpointing as a sure-to-be Next Big Thing in red-carpet fashion? And whose look still has some growing up to do? Check it!
This week’s Style Superstar is none other than “Mad Men”’s Kiernan Shipka, who plays the wayward, risk-taking tween daughter of the recently divorced Drapers. Kiernan got lots of positive feedback for her shimmery look at the Emmys on Sunday, but we think it’s this cobalt blue dress with a geometric-print bodice, peter pan collar and pleated skirt—and the daring punch of color from her turquoise pumps and bright yellow purse—that show she’s got the spirit of a true fashionista. So many teenage actresses struggle to strike the right balance with their red-carpet looks, but Kiernan’s ability to go bold and have fun hits all the right notes and looks effortless to boot.
Also in attendance at the Young Hollywood affair: Aimee Teegarden, a proud member of the acting new class, who went for a black-and-navy look featuring a wide belt and a big ruffled neckline—when she probably should’ve picked one or the other. The heavy belt and structured dress create a look that’s way top-heavy on the petite Aimee, and the palette is downright drab. Here’s hoping she lets herself shine a little brighter next time.
