Being 14 and walking red carpets requires a bit of balance: for actress Chloë Moretz, it means making fashion-forward choices while still looking fresh and demure. So the Hick star turns to three trusted authorities — her stylist, her mom and her brother — every time she leaves the house for an event.

“It’s all up to my stylist, Nell Kalonji,” Moretz recently told PEOPLE. “I owe it to her for everything she pulls for me and puts together for me. [I] have to be very age appropriate, but at the same time flirty and chic and young.”

Luckily, that’s not an issue for the star. “I definitely keep it safe because I’m not that kind of girl,” she explained. “I’m not risqué — I’m very normal and grounded. So I definitely don’t want to get older when I have a lot of time to do that.”

So far, she’s kept it youthful on the red carpet, making stylish statements in dresses by the likes of Versace, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney and Kenzo. And she’s learned the art of fashion moderation, too. As she mused, “A little bit of Dolce goes a long way.”
