Hmmm. We had hopes that this one was going to be a budding Tilda or Cate, but it doesn’t quite seem to be working out that way.

But that’s horribly unfair of us, of course. No teenager should be expected to have a style sense as advanced and well-presented as those of two of the most stylish women of a generation several decades older than her. She definitely seems to have a nascent interest in fashion and presenting herself well, a la Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, and Kiernan Shipka. And like those other girls, a lot of her efforts have been impressive and memorable. But she seems to be developing a tendency toward fussiness in her looks; a sense that everything’s being overthought. That dress could be quite cute on her, but the makeup, hair, and especially the shoes are all fighting with it. Hard. The result is a little on the frumpy side. A clean face, blown out hair and simpler shoes, lighter in color, would have pulled this together nicely.
But she’s still a teenager, so she’s figuring it out, like most of us did. We lay the blame on her stylist’s feet here.
