But what really made her outfit? Her two best accessories: her Apple Watch, because why NOT look at your step count on the red carpet? And her braces. Because every self-respecting 13-year-old should have their favorite electronic on them at all times and a commitment to orthodonture is commendable.

Winner, winner!
