Five things you can learn from Kiernan Shipka
If you don’t watch Mad Men, then you may have absolutely no idea who Kiernan Shipka is. Well, then allow me to introduce you to the gorgeous 13-year-old who plays Don and Betty’s daughter, Sally. You’ll want to remember that face and name, because her celebrity status is bound to rise as the years pass.
Anyway, I saw a picture of the pretty tween from the SAG awards and was floored by her. Not just her hair and make-up, but her entire get-up and how elegantly beautiful she looked. And not just for a teenager, but for a woman of any age.
So whether you’re young, old, or somewhere in between, here are some things you can learn from the rising star:
#1: Bushy brows are cool
How often do you freak out if your brows are out of place? Or break out into a cold sweat if you forgot to pluck them before you left home. Don’t fret, because brows that are a little imperfect are totally okay.
#2: You can have your hemline sit below your knee without looking dowdy
I’ll admit it, I’m guilty of the ‘if-it’s-longer-than-my-knee-but-not-floorlength-it-doesn’t-look-good’ excuse, but Kiernan shows that if done right, a mid-calf length frock can look absolutely ladylike and elegant.
#3: Don’t be afraid of a retro-glam hairstyle
You know what they say, fashion goes in circles and it looks like old Hollywood glam hairstyles are getting bigger and bigger. Kiernan’s sleek, shiny do has just the right amount of defined curl to give the style some oomph.
#4: Rosy cheeks and pink lips are a great team
The combination of perfectly flushed cheeks and soft candy pink lips works just as well for a day in the office as it does on a night out. It’s cute, it’s feminine, and it’ll give you the freedom to play around with your eye look.
#5: Choose your centerpiece carefully
Young as Kiernan may be, it looks like she understands that concept of a statement piece. In this case, it’s her embellished dress. See how her accessories are simple (read: just sparkly studs)? And how low-key her make-up is? Don’t do too much all at once when you’re looking to make a statement – otherwise you may be sending the wrong message.
