Kiernan Shipka is not your typical 12-year-old. She had her first TV role at five months old in the form of a guest appearance in the medical drama ER and she has appeared in over 200 print advertisements, as well as a range of commercials. But it was her role as Sally Draper in the AMC show Mad Men that brought her the Scene Stealer Award at this year’s Young Hollywood Awards 2012, which honors young talent for its accomplishments in the entertainment industry.
Besides acting and ballet, Shipka is very passionate about fashion. She served as a guest fashion blogger for Lucky Magazine and also proved her sense of style at the Young Hollywood Awards with a stunning Miu Miu dress and a classic bun as her preferred hairstyle for the glamorous evening. And Shipka knows definitely what she wants. “Sometimes I’m in sweatpants and a T-shirt because that’s what I find most comfortable, but overall I think I have the same style for pretty much everything,” she tells RCT reporter, Carly Steel. She describes her style as “fun, classic with a little bit of edge and a little bit of modern twist.” For the event she paired her Miu Miu dress with a mix of light pink and sparkle OPI nail polish.
Her ultimate style tip? “I think a really good lip gloss or lip color can always make the outfit that much more special.” She says “I’ve been obsessed with all the colors made by Stila this recent season. I think she has some really fun colors this summer.”
