Millie Bobby Brown, 13, brought her classic edgy style to the SAG Awards on Sunday night when she chose an untraditional type of footwear.


The Stranger Things star wore a pink sequined Calvin Klein dress with a cape trail, and put her hair into two buns reminiscent of Princess Leia’s iconic hairdo. She added pink lipstick and shiny eye shadow, plus metallic pink fingernails and various fashionable rings. The look was typical for a red carpet affair until getting down to her feet: she rocked a fresh pair of white canvas converse low-tops for the event.

When asked about the shoe choice, Brown told People that she just loves to dance. “You got to go for Converse. You gotta dance the night away, win or lose!” she explained. “You know you gotta keep it stylish,” she added to E!. “It’s fun to go to the parties. I love to dance that’s why I brought these.”

The teenaged cast of the hit Netflix show tends to look flawless at award show events, and the SAG Awards were no exception. The actress briefly documented parts of the evening on social media.

Brown’s Stranger Things co-star David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, has said recently that he hopes to protect the actress as she matures in Hollywood. “I’m hopeful she’ll get to grow up in a place where they’ll tell her stories more,” the actor said. He won the Best Supporting Actor award at the Critics’ Choice Awards earlier in January, and was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series at the SAG Awards as well. “That’s where our power lies, in the stories that we tell.”

Brown was up for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, but lost to Claire Foy for The Crown.
