Kiernan Shipka might be the most poised, stylish, well-spoken 12 1/2 year old out there. The Mad Men actress invited Harper's Bazaar editor Laura Brown into her home for a new episode of Brown's web series The Look, and their subsequent interview is pretty adorable.
Shipka's current sartorial fascinations include Chucks ("I'm so obsessed with Converse. I'm wearing them all the time with everything") and American Rag ("They sell Toms there now"). She describes her outfit—which, mind you, is amazing—to Brown, and we kind of lost it when she mentions that she likes to pair her printed Little Marc blouse with a sweater so you see the Peter Pan collar peeking out. She also makes her own dresses. Who is this kid?
