She’s a swan! Kiernan Shipka hit her final Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet for Mad Men on Saturday, January 30, and has grown up so much since she first attended the star-studded show as a kid back in 2009.
The 16-year-old beauty — who memorably played Sally Draper on the series — classed it up outside of L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium in a strapless purple floral gown by Erdem.
“It’s fun and it’s sometimes stressful,” she said of getting ready for big awards shows. “And you just sometimes have to roll with it. I think I’m all about having fun.”
Just 9 years old at her first SAG appearance in January 2009, Shipka dressed adorably for her first photo op in a short-sleeve black frock embellished with a ribbon at her waist. She accessorized the cute dress with a ribboned headband and black Mary Jane shoes.
Last October, Shipka opened up to Us Weekly and other reporters about how her taste has evolved. “[My] personal style is always changing,” she said at Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood party. “Right now, I think I’m getting so inspired by all these [Fashion Week] shows. They’re so good. For me, my personal style in my everyday life — I’ve been running around a lot the past few months. So, it’s, like, toss on the overalls, toss on the boyfriend jeans and the T-shirt I wear all the time. I’m a big sneaker person. So, kind of casual [and] fun.”
Since Mad Men ended, Shipka has been “taking classes and looking for new projects,” she said.
She also posed with her onscreen half brother, Bobby Draper, on the SAGs carpet. (Little Bobby, who was played by a eight different actors over the years, was last portrayed by actor Mason Vale Cotton.)
