1.7 million Instagram followers. A lead role in one of the most-viewed TV shows in Netflix history. And everyone from fashion designers, musicians and…er, Liverpool FC falling for you. A dream-like existence for some – but a reality for Millie Bobby Brown, aka ‘Eleven’ in hit sci-fi series Stranger Things.

The 12-year old British actress (yes, she was raised in Bournemouth folks!) has had such a pervasive impact on pop culture that her signature ST pink dress was one of the most searched Halloween costumes this year.

But it’s the pre-teen’s personal style off-screen that's got everyone talking, just as much as her burgeoning acting (and possible singing) career. She sat front-row at Coach’s SS17 show in New York – beside her co-star, ‘good friend’ and ‘90s style icon Winona Ryder. There’s a yet-to-be-announced project with Louis Vuitton in the pipeline. And she even landed her first ever solo magazine cover for So It Goes last month…

Do not underestimate the power of Eleven.

Yes, the pint-sized star was born in 2004, but she may have been inspired by ‘80s Americana fashion by the looks of her quirky sartorial choices of late – from her statement pixie-cropped ‘do to an array of pretty punk dresses.

To mark Millie Bobby Brown’s huge breakout year, take a look back at 11 style hits from the mini-fashionista you need to be following RN…

1. Pink in Paris

After the kids from Stranger Things headed to the French capital recently to hang with Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, we were left wondering what their ‘secret project’ is and where to buy a carbon-copy of Brown’s pink winter coat.

2. The Bridesmaid dress

Millie Bobby Brown’s playful sense of fashion is both chic and age-appropriate, like her cute cream dress she wore to the Stranger Things premiere with casual vans – before slipping into a pair of light up sneakers. Remember those?!

The rising-star looks unrecognisable for Interview magazine. Time to invest in a heavy eye-liner pen and some hair gel, stat.

4. The Fresh Prince look

White tee and '90s dungarees combo? Always a winner.

5. Graphic tee-time

A SS17 staple, we might add.

7. Emmy magic

On par with her spectacular Uptown Funk performance to open this year’s Emmy Awards, her embroidered tulle gown from Red Valentino should get a shout out too.

8. Pretty pastels
