Watch: Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka Talk Fashion


(YouTube)We gushed over Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka on this week's episode of "The Look," Harper Bazaar's webisode series. The 12-and-a-half-year-old actress was totally lovable the entire six minutes of the interview—she couldn't have been more poised, articulate, or adorable.

When it came time to get down to business, Kiernan's responses to editor Laura Brown's fashion-related questions were so intelligent we instantly felt ashamed of our middle school Abercrombie and Fitch obsession.

For the interview, the young actress wore a Little Marc printed peter-pan collar tee, tailored shorts, and silver cap-toed Chanel booties that her grandparents gifted her (can we borrow them please?).

The highlight of the video is the tour of her two closets, which hold goodies from the likes of  Oscar de la Renta's children's line and Chloe Kids. She even designs and sews some of her own dresses too!

Kiernan also spoke about her favorite stores—like American Rag.

"I love that they have awesome petticoats," she said. "I find they have the most selection of kind of more the 70s/80s, where the rest of the stores have kind of 60s/50s."

She also told Brown how much she admires stars who take risks on the red carpet.

"I most admire people who aren't afraid of what people are going to think and really just rock it—even if it's really crazy," Kiernan said. "I kind of tend to respect that more than someone who plays it safe."

"For instance, I would look like such a clown in Willow Smith's clothes, but I think she looks amazing. She rocks it so much."

For more from this fashionable preteen, you must, repeat must, watch the entire video (below). She's just too endearing not too!
