11-Year-Old Actress Kiernan Shipka Wants To Tell You Who She’s Wearing

Well, it was bound to happen. We recently brought you this video of “Mad Men” actress Kiernan Shipka playing the role of a child psychiatrist for Funny or Die, and now, she’s parlaying that non-Draper turn into the fashion world, blogging at Lucky magazine in a series called “eight days, eight outfits.” In it, she posts photos of herself and tells readers what she’s wearing. I.e. “the jeans are J Brand and I wear them all the time!”

Of Shipka, the magazine writes: “The 11-year-old Mad Men actress/emerging fashion star reveals eight days of her personal style. Hint: she takes cues from Tavi.”

So, look — all that might be true. Shipka might be an “emerging fashion star.” She might be a fucking prodigy. And she is totally adorable, and she really does have some cute outfits on in the spread.

But she’s eleven. And Lucky is for grown-ass women. Shipka should blog as much as she wants, and exercise that fashion muscle of hers, but the editors at Lucky are perhaps a bit misguided here. After all, I don’t know about you, but I’m not that into taking fashion cues from fifth graders.

    American Apparel skirt looks cute on her (because she’s small?).

    She should get out of women’s magazines and put her fashions on a blog where the Sartorialist can dump on her and then try to act like he didn’t. That’s our way.

    I simply adore this “little girl” and wish her the best be it in fashion, acting or wherever her heart takes her, BUT the idea that she should be telling adult women how to dress is just the teeniest bit out of balance.

    Go Kiernan go, but wait until you graduate high school before advising women on fashion.
