After Yara Shahidi jump-started her career as a pre-teen in films like Butter and Imagine That, it wasn’t long until the actress solidified herself as a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. We’ve watched the Minneapolis native mature in front of our eyes; she was named one of the 30 Most Influential Teens of 2016 by TIME, taking on award-winning roles in the likes of Black-ish, Grown-ish, and Peter Pan & Wendy.

Throughout it all, including a degree from Harvard, Shahidi has consistently remained one of the most exciting red carpet dressers in Hollywood, evolving from child star to seasoned veteran. She has always gravitated toward color on the step-and-repeat but is well versed in pulling off a more minimal moment too. She has slipped into some of the biggest brands throughout her time in the spotlight—from Chanel to Dior, Prada to Bottega Veneta—and is always sure to be decked out in some form of blinding Cartier jewels. Below, a look back at Yara Shahidi’s best red carpet moments.
