When I was thirteen years old, I didn’t even have a mobile phone and was still mourning the loss of Santa Claus whilst wearing some questionable FCUK merchandise. Whereas, at the same age, Millie Bobby Brown is not only an ass-kicking actress, she's taking selfies as the darling of the fashion world AND has the wardrobe many adults would, well, kick ass for!
I was sat next to my former BFF (who is now married with two kids and no longer in touch) at thirteen years old whereas Millie Bobby Brown is sat next to A$AP Rocky at the Calvin Klein show. Sat in most teenager’s dream location of a make-shift popcorn factory, Millie couldn’t deal with the fact she was as FROWing with the rap star. MBB sneakily took to her Instagram stories to record the fan girling moment - mid show. Watch the video below. CUTE. MUCH? Oh and sorry Drake, it seems Millie has a new BFF.

A$AP rocky may be too cool to not loose his sh*t over perching next to THE teenage actress on the planet, but Karlie Kloss couldn’t keep it together. The model posted a snap of her with Millie entitled, “when you meet your girl crush, IRL.” Don’t worry Karlie, hun, you are all of is in that situation!
As the youngest face ever of Calvin Klein, the key to Millie Bobby Brown’s successful style is that despite having most designers, namely Raf Simons, on speed dial she maintains a playful stance on apparel. Her look at Calvin Klein was a deep blue velvet varsity dress we ALL wish we could still wear, accessorized with a sprinkling of glitter eye shadow. Again, we wish we could still get away with that, too.
Millie isn’t the only Stranger Things star making wardrobe waves on the front row at New York Fashion Week. Lucas AKA Caleb McLaughlin made his fashion week debut at the 3.1 Phillip Lim show, exclaiming, “I thought people would be like, ‘who is this kid?’” The opposite was the case. Photographers lost it and fellow FROWers, Zosia Mamet and singer Kehlani could barely handle the fact the sixteen year old was in their presence.
The young actor has been stepping out with considerable fashion prowess in recent months. From the 3.1 Phillip Lim bomber we can’t stop thinking about buying to his penchant for jazzy evening jackets for red carpet appearances, Millie isn’t the only style star in the making.
So join us in mourning over the harsh reality that we are nowhere near as cool as a teenager. Where did we go so wrong?
