Millie Bobby Brown has fans doing a double take after rocking an extremely grown-up look on the 2020 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards red carpet.

The Stranger Things star looked incredible in a custom high-low dress and pants ensemble by Louis Vuitton, but the chic look had some fans wondering what had happened to the young teen that won hearts as Eleven on the hit Netflix series.

“Millie Bobby Brown is growing up before our very eyes and I am so proud look at her SHINE yes sweetie you’re doing great,” one fan praised the 15-year-old actress, who also appeared on the awards stage alongside Jharrel Jerome.

“I wish I dressed as well as Millie Bobbie Brown at 15,” another person tweeted.

A few fans however wondered why the young star had opted for such a mature look, something she has often been criticised for over the years.

“Forever wondering why Millie Bobby Brown is obsessed with looking 30,” one fan asked?

Millie has been growing up in front of the world since she first made her acting debut in 2013, as a guest star in the ABC series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

She then catapulted to global stardom after season one of Stranger Things, becoming one of the youngest nominees in Emmy history at just 13.

Late last year, Millie made headlines with a very grown-up makeup look, when she channeled Dirty Dancing’s Frances “Baby” Houseman.

The actress posted two photos showcasing a cobalt blue smokey eye and curly hair inspired by Jennifer Grey in 1987 film.

Some fans were torn about the teen’s appearance as she’s not even 16 years old, portraying a character who was played by Jennifer Grey when she was 27.

“I’m so torn. You’re a glorious strong growing lady but also 15 and underage,” one person wrote.

“I feel uncomfortable seeing this..she is a beautiful young lady only in her teens..why make her look older?” another questioned.
