Kiernan Shipka's Stylish Evolution: See Her Fashion Change On Screen and Off!
SEASON 1 (2007)
Cute-as-a-button Kiernan, then 6, mostly appeared in cameos in scenes at the tense Draper home, but soon earned more screen time thanks to her precocious talent. “She was six when I met her and is 15 now. What she could do at that age and what she can do at this age is so impressive to all of us,” series creater Matt Weiner told PEOPLE. “She’s kind of a prodigy … [TV parents] Jon [Hamm] and January [Jones] always treated her like an actress.”
2008 (SEASON 2)
Both onscreen and off, Kiernan was still sporting super-girlie looks appropriate for a 7-year-old – though she clearly was mastering her pose game early on.
SEASON 3 (2009)
Adorable headbands, ribbon-belted frocks and cute flats: Before hitting double-digits, Kiernan and Sally still shared a wardrobe sensibility.
SEASON 4 (2010)
Sally was totally feeling the ’60s in her mod dresses and headbands, while Kiernan’s red carpet style remained prim and polished (dig those perfectly-matched, rosette-adorned shoes).
SEASON 5 (2012)
Sally has her first big “all grown up” moment in a pair of white go-go boots that costume designer Janie Bryant envisioned as a gift from the character’s cool stepmother Megan. “[Sally’s] costumes really shifted then and have continued to shift,” Bryant told Elle. Similarly, Shipka started becoming a fashionista in her own right – revealing in a tour of her closet that she kept one of the pairs of boots for herself.
SEASON 6 (2013)
A transfer to boarding school found Sally looking a lot more sophisticated, in notice-me minis and preppy headbands. Even more to die for than Sally’s closet, though? Kiernan’s own, which now is starting to incorporate huge designers like Oscar de la Renta, Miu Miu and RED Valentino (pictured here).
SEASON 7, PART 1 (2014)
As a rebellious teen, Sally’s wardrobe gets much bolder (and starts to mirror her mother’s, in many ways). Kiernan stays as ladylike as ever, but with a few more grown-up elements than before. “When it comes to clothes, I always look for something that s fun and represents me, she told PEOPLE. My style is modern and elegant with a little more of a twist.”
SEASON 7, PART 2 (2015)
Judging by this preview photo of Sally’s puff-sleeved mini and hairsprayed do, the show has now entered the ’70s (and Sally’s more of a high-maintenance teen than ever). Kiernan’s totally current, though, thanks to her messy pony, killer brows (so 2015) and perpetually on-point style. There’s a reason she was one of PEOPLE’s best dressed stars in 2014: The kid’s a 15-year-old fashion wunderkind.
