I must admit my eyes did fill up a little bit when I saw Kiernan Shipka take to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards, so her dear mother must have been in floods of tears to see her beautiful daughter looking so pretty and grown up in her Zac Posen dress.

Zac Posen, king of the red-carpet mermaid gowns, created a demure party dress for the young ‘Mad Men’ actress.

Her blue duchess satin dress, with brooch-detailed shoulders, was styled with David Webb jewels, silver Jimmy Choo ‘Smooth’ sandals and a vintage Swarovski silver crystal ‘Harlow’ evening bag.

A simple bun and light makeup completed her look.
