I chatted up both Willow and Kiernan Shipka at Fashion Week, within about half an hour of each other. And while both fourteen-year olds are totally on the same page in terms of poise and attitude and having great parents, they tend to be polar opposites when it comes to style. And it’s fun.
I mean, maybe I’m nuts, but I totally think she’s pulling this off, and I think it’s HUGELY fun that she is even trying. She looks completely stoked to be there, she’s in a quirky patterned suit, her hair looks fab… this child is clearly having a great time, and frankly, she looks cooler than at least half the other people who RSVP’d. If Kiernan Shipka is, say, Junior Allison Williams, then this one is Junior Diane Kruger. There is room in my heart for both.
