Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Kiernan Shipka joined many talented stars on the red carpet at the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards, held at the Hollywood Athletic Club, in LA yesterday evening where she picked up the much deserved, ‘Female Scene Stealer ‘Award.

The 12-year-old ‘Mad Men’ star wore a Miu Miu dress.

Her utterly adorable age-appropriate pink dress features floral macramé embroidery, white floral appliqués and Swarovski crystals.

Dark magenta Miu Miu bow accented peep-toes provide a nice contrast.

I would imagine being a makeup artist for a young actress is a difficult job, as your challenge is always to ensure the star looks her age.

Elle Leary, makeup artist to ‘Mad Men’ actress Kiernan Shipka, shares how she gives the young actress a flawless glow.

“When we sit down with Kiernan and her mom to figure out her look for an event it is a process that takes into account her amazing fashion sense and individual flair. With her makeup it is a fine line to keep her looking age-appropriate but still honor her sense of style.

I make sure to keep her skin dewy, glowing, and youthful by moisturizing with Arbonne oil-absorbing lotion. This is a vegan, organic, paraban-free product. I try to use these types of products on her since she is so young.

I use a full-coverage foundation but sheer it out a little with moisturizer so we can see her beautiful snow-white complexion.

I love to draw attention to her amazing cheeks by swirling a little Harvana by Benefit on the apples. Perfect blend of pinks, peaches and a highlighter.

Sweep a variety of eye-shadows on her lids of taupes, browns, coppers, pinks, and mauves. I stay away from eye-liner and just finish off with two coats of mascara. I apply mascara with a medal eye-lash comb to give her the most natural and separated lashes.

Lastly we love to play up her lips; Kiernan loves pinks and nudes.

Most of the time I stick with a tint or stain to let her natural colour come through, but other times when we are trying to pump it up a little, I use a creamy lip pencil to colour in the whole lip.

I often use Peche by Chanel with a little gloss in Mica just in the centre of her lip.

Finish with a little dusting of a translucent powder in the T-zone and you are done.”

Joining her older co-stars, twelve-year-old Kiernan Shipka walked the red carpet for the Season 5 premiere of ‘Mad Men’ in Hollywood on Wednesday night.

The actress, who portrays Sally Draper on the show, wore a Miu Miu dress with a silver floral brocade and a pink taffeta bodice.

Kiernan matched her shoes to her dress, wearing nude vernice Miu Miu pumps, which revealed large crystals hidden in the low heels when she turned to the side.

I can’t think of a more charming look for the young actress.

So well put together and polished, but still youthful and girly.

Teen stars appear to be ruling the red carpet this week.

‘Mad Men’ star Kiernan Shipka joined January Jones at PaleyFest in Beverly Hills, California, yesterday.

She looked super cute wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 floral-print party dress from the childrenswear department, which debuts this month.

Her floral-burst dress was teamed with simple nude pumps, wavy hair and glossy lips.

What a great way to show off your first Oscar dress. She’ll be a fan for life now.

The Spring/Summer 2012 Childrenswear Collection will be available on Thursday, March 22.

Kiernan Shipka was the other young fashionable star on the red carpet at the “Glee The 3D Concert Movie” LA Premiere yesterday.

The talented ‘Mad Men’ actress who plays ‘Sally Draper’ wore a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2011 dress.

Her white halter bow dress with a gold wheat and dragonfly print was paired with age appropriate beige kitten heels.

The youngster looks absolutely adorable.

After spending the early days on my blog writing about stars like Miley Cyrus who was desperate to look 25 at 14, it’s refreshing to see young stars like Kiernan, Hailee Steinfeld and Elle Fanning looking their age whilst still wearing runway looks.
