We’ve been looking at some dicey and questionable celebu-fashion all day, so please don’t take it the wrong way when we say we just need to see a pretty girl in a pretty dress right now.
“Mad Men” star Kiernan Shipka at the Variety’s 2013 Power of Youth Event in Universal City, California in a RED Valentino sleeveless dress.

There. That’s better. After a day of looking at bad shoes and bad skirts and weird choices, it’s just so damn refreshing to look at someone getting it exactly right. That she’s thirteen years old is a fairly damning indictment of the state of celebu-style, we have to say. Then again, it’s because she’s thirteen that she can wear this look and not have it come off boring. Let’s face it; if she was fifteen years older, we’d have to resist the urge to tell her to sport a pop of color or more jewelry or something like that. No, this works so well because it’s perfectly suited for her age and style. That’s what makes her a budding fashionista (although we think we’re well past “budding” at this point): her tendency to dress absolutely perfectly for her age. And if you look back over the last few years, you’ll see that she’s slowly aging up her looks as she gets older, without ever going past what’s acceptable for whatever age she’s at. Not to rush her or anything, but she’s going to be a style knockout by the time she turns eighteen.
