Kiernan Shipka who plays Sally Draper in Mad Men may still be a tween, yet she has already been featured in fashion shoots, and appears to have a scarily 'old beyond her years' approach to fashion. The actress designs her own clothes, when not clad in 50s replica dresses. We sense a designer collaboration hovering on the horizon.
According to fashionista.com, Kiernan revealed the secrets behind her designs, 'This dress is actually an original design of mine. I love the color and the fabric, which is a raw silk taffeta. I spent days going through all the fabric shops in downtown LA to find this fabric… I made many changes to the dress along the way. It took about a year to finish. It turned out great!' Jesus Christ, just keep repeating to yourself, 'this girl is 11' while reading.
She continued, 'I organize things by clothing type and by season. My dresses are together, as well as my skirts, hats, jackets, tops, scarfs, sweaters, and shoes! I hate a messy closet. I totally freak out when my closet is messy and I can’t find anything…I split my clothes into two closets according to seasons. Though I have to go to the guest room to pull my fall and winter items, it’s still much easier than cramming all my clothes together in my one closet. I love 'space' in between hanging clothes.'
We suddenly feel scarily old yet immature in one fell swoop...
