The weather may be showing few signs of spring this week, but at least we can rely on celebrity fashion to remind us that is, in fact, late March. Kiernan Shipka did exactly that when she wore a cheery floral Rosie Assoulin dress to a Wednesday screening of "The Blackcoat's Daughter" in New York City. And because this is not the kind of look that needs further embellishment — there's a lot going on, with the brightly colored flowers, mesh overlay, bold yellow straps and flouncy skirt — Shipka's choice to forgo accessories and jewelry made it all the more impactful.

The dress comes from the designer's Fall 2017 collection, and though Shipka's styling made it apt eveningwear, at the designer's presentation, the look was styled much more casually, with a slouchy jacket and ankle boots, shown below.

As a complement to the all-around perfection of the dress itself, Shipka's beauty look — rosy pink lips and cheeks, a low ponytail and groomed, full brows — felt equally spring-y and fresh. Let's take a closer look at those enviable brows, shall we? Apparently that's what can happen when you're young enough to have grown up after the rest of us went tweezer-happy in the early aughts.

Well played, Sally Draper. Betty would no doubt be proud.
