Through the Lens: Kiernan Shipka

...And the Mad Men love continues, this time with a focus on Kiernan Shipka. It's startling to think she was only 6 years old when she started playing Sally Draper. Offscreen, Kiernan has blossomed into well-spoken and extremely stylish 15 year-old. I like that in most editorials I've seen her in, she's wearing something that is classic and inspired by a different time -- much like Mad Men itself.

She recalls the last day on the set and her daily style in the April 2015 issue of Marie Claire:
On her last day on the set of Mad Men: "It was very bittersweet — a really good time, but very sad. Lots of tears."
On her Mad Men character: "Sally is very strong and independent. Very perceptive, too. I don't think she'd want to be friends with me, but I'd to be friends with her!"
On her interest in fashion:
"Since I started Mad Men when I was 6, a lot of my interest in fashion sparked while I was on the show; Janie Bryant, the costume designer, is so brilliant, and I've been surrounded by all this great vintage clothing."
On daily style: "Fun and simple. Right now, I’m wearing overalls, a white shirt, a gray cardigan, and some sneakers."
