Kiernan Shipka, who plays a troubled 12-year-old on the hit show “Mad Men,” looks like trouble in a new Lolita-like photo spread for the U.K magazine Grazia. She wears heavy makeup and Versace.
Shipka, 12, wears a studded Versace dress and Christian Louboutin shoes, not exactly something your average 12-year-old would wear to junior high school.
The child actress looks remarkably older and sexualized in contrast to her “Mad Men” character and photos without makeup.

Kiernan says he parents won’t even let her watch the show, which is about the sexually charged atmosphere at a 1960s era advertising agency.
On the show, her character, Sally, is caught in the throes of a divorce and is undergoing therapy. Her mother Betty, played by January Jones, slapped her during a confrontation last season.
“I’m not allowed to watch the show, apart from my own scenes,” she told the magazine. “I’ll start watching it when I’m older. I’ll have a lot of DVD marathons.”
While the show has been on hiatus–it returns for a fifth season later this month–Kiernan has been making the rounds in fashion circles, and already has a wardrobe twice the size of most grown women. She’s also blogged about fashion for Lucky magazine.
“My style is constantly changing. At the moment I look preppy, but with an edge,” she says. “I am a huge fashion fan. It’s a really cool way to express yourself. I’m always excited to get to set and see what I’m wearing.”
Kiernan says Grace Kelly is her ultimate style icon but Zooey Deschanel epitomizes modern fashion. Check out her photos.
