Millie Bobby Brown Goes Mermaid in Sequin Cut-Out Dress for Her 18th Birthday
Since she landed her breakout role as Eleven on Stranger Things in 2016, Millie Bobby Brown has gone on to become one of the world's biggest stars. From founding her clean beauty brand, Florence by Mills, to producing and starring in multiple Netflix projects like Enola Holmes, she's proven to be a well-rounded talent. She's even dipped her toes in the fashion industry thanks to collaborations with Converse, Vogue Eyewear, and Pandora.
Ahead of her 18th birthday on February 19, Millie is proving there is nothing she can't do with a ton of new projects like Stranger Things 4 and Florence by Mills' latest Color in Wonderland collection. I caught up with Millie on a Zoom call, where we had a "bestie chat" all about the inspo behind Florence's latest drop, her favorite Olivia Rodrigo song, and of course, her reunion with the Enola Holmes cast.
In the past, Florence's product drops have honed in on the classic "no-makeup makeup" vibes, but Color in Wonderland introduces new lip products to inspire people to step out of their comfort zones. Through her funky outfits and super cute manis, Millie has been all about expressing herself through color, and that sentiment shines through with her brand's latest drop. "I've been so excited for this collection to come out [because] it represents color, boldness, and not being afraid to create looks to match with your moods and who you are as a person," Millie explained.
Millie also teased what fans can expect from the brand later this year. "We've always been focused on beauty and skincare, but we branched out to haircare, and now we're branching out to something else in late fall, which is so exciting and also ever-evolving."
Her beloved character, Enola Holmes, is also evolving into a "more mature, hectic, and loud" version of herself in the film's sequel, which is slated to release on Netflix this year. After filming the first movie and becoming fast friends with her co-stars Louis Partridge and Henry Cavill, Millie said that their reunion was incredible as they're super fun to work with. One of her favorite memories was bringing her pup, Winnie, and her bunny to set, where they'd run around and play with the cast and crew. "I would be in my Enola gowns, which are huge and seven layers of fabric, and I'd have my dog and my rabbit in my hands," Millie laughed. "I looked insane, but I was like, 'I'm a mum. Before anything, I'm an animal mum.'"
