Not every 14-year-old gets to spend an evening with Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively, Emma Stone and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. But that’s how Chloë Moretz spent her Tuesday night — albeit with her mother in tow.

“Mom’s a pretty good date,” the actress told PEOPLE before Tuesday’s star-studded tribute to director Pedro Almodóvar. “We look exactly alike and she’s beautiful.”

Moretz’s ensemble was also beautiful: the rising star wore a sparkly black-and-blush Chanel number and black heels. But the outfit came with a couple of complications. “I had to be sewn into it,” Moretz admitted. “There are no clips in the back and these aren’t real buttons.”

The Kick-Ass star has had her fair share of sartorial milestones since hitting the scene: she’s been dressed by just about every big-name designer, and even won an award for her fashion sense at last week’s Hollywood Style Awards. But a major highlight for the teen was trying on Hick costar Blake Lively‘s Christian Louboutins.

“We were [on set] in North Carolina,” Moretz recalled, “and she brought like 40 pairs with her. And she said, ‘This is like one-third of my collection.'” What was her impression of the designer shoes? “They’re tall,” she said. “Really tall.”

Mom Teri Moretz admitted to being “a little less glamorous” at her daughter’s age. “I was climbing trees and playing hide-and-seek,” she told PEOPLE. But she’s enjoyed watching her daughter’s rise to fame — and reaping some benefits, too. “Having tea in Martin Scorsese’s living room,” she said of her biggest ‘pinch-me’ moment thus far. “That was amazing!”
