At 16 years old, Kiernan Shipka is already a red carpet pro, and her enviable style has landed her on many a best dressed list. But when it came to posing, the Mad Men star found that she needed a few tips—and who better to deliver than on-screen mom January Jones?

The star looked stunning in a purple printed Erdem gown with bustier detailing at the 2016 SAG Awards, where she put her former Mad Men co-star's “very useful” advice into action. When dealing with red carpet photographers, Shipka​ just keeps moving. “You’ve got to start on one end and then go all of the way down,” the actress said.

Shipka shared that in order to "avoid looking like a crazy person,” Jones advised her to calmly move down the carpet and not let the flashing cameras and beckoning shutterbugs distract her.

Shipka said that she’s used the tip on every red carpet since, and it has definitely paid off—this actress knows how to work the camera.
