Bindi Irwin Is All Grown Up (and Rocking a Smoky Eye)

“Wildlife expert” may be at the top of Bindi Irwin’s résumé, but the 15-year-old daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin has just proved she has some skills in the style department too.

At last night’s AACTA Awards in Sydney, the young star left khaki behind, instead choosing a fit-and-flare floral skater dress, black boots and a pretty wavy blowout. Her spot-on smoky eye also got our attention, since we’re used to seeing her fresh-faced and wrangling animals.

Last year, Irwin starred in Return to Nim’s Island, her first foray into the acting world. And we hope she continues, so we can follow her budding career.

“I would love to expand my acting career and take on more roles, even if they do not directly have to do with wildlife,” she told PEOPLE.

What do you think of Irwin’s look? Share your thoughts below!

“all grown up” is a juvenile term, like something a five year old would say about himself because he doesn’t need diapers. Why not just a headline “Bindi Irwin is 15. and wearing eye makeup”?

Sherrie on

She looks adorable! She is one very beautiful young girl. Grown up she isn’t!!!!! Come on People mag

anonymous on

Her father would be so proud!

maxine on

pretty girl. i am sure her father would be very proud.

Back when on

I wish her dad was here to see her.

guest on

Goodness all grown up and what a cutie. I’m getting old!

fifiwereking on

i love steve irwin’s pretty lookalike daughter, but that outfit is awful, and unflattering… better luck next time, bindi – i hope to see a lot more of you!

Seabot on

I’m actually not a fan of the smokey eye on her, I think she looks much prettier natural, the smokey eye shuts down her eye area. But the outfit is adorable.

Maddie on

I have that dress! It’s from Forever 21. Very adorable and affordable. She looks super cute!

isa on

Very appropriate dress for a young girl like her. She looks so much like her daddy. Cute girl!

hautemom on

She is just such a doll. A class act, and smart. Rare to find in girls her age these days.

Angie on

Actually…in 2010 she starred in Free Willy: Escape from Pirates Cove so this really wasn’t her “first foray into the acting world”. Perhaps you should check your facts, she has 5 acting credits to her name.

whatev on

so cute.

Arleen on

Her father would be so proud! Such a wonderful, beautiful young lady she has become! Stay sweet Bindi, don’t let the acting career and all of the glitz change you in any way, you are perfect just the way you are….

Linda on

I wish her dad Steve could see how beautiful his little girl is all grown up now…..she is a gorgeous young lady. I wish her all the luck in the world.

Sherron on

She’s adorable, looks a lot like her dad…

Jess on

She looks beautiful. I am sure her father would be much more impressed with who she has become rather than how pretty she is. It was a given that she would be beautiful but her heart and intelligence is what is truly impressive.

Jada on

Love her! However, I don’t think she needs all the makeup. She is a natural beauty.

Kimmy on

I never thought she was a particularly cute child, but she certainly has blossomed into a lovely young woman.

Mrs Wise on

Yep – very funny how they try to make 15 year olds grown ups (case in point – Kardashian girls). Just say here’s a pretty teen. Geesh!

LA on

She looks so nice. Dressed like a respectful young lady.

She needs to show this example to the young little girls growing up out there.

THIS, Miss Bindi Irwin, is how you want to keep yourself….young girls out there…take note. Enough of the Miley Cyrus example out there !!!

MrsG on

She looks darling!

Carson on

Absolutely stunning!!!!

Chihuahua Mom on

Her dad wold be so proud of the woman she’s become. This is a strong, beautiful and level-headed young woman. She’s a role model for all young girls. Good job!

Dawn S on

Her mom’s done a wonderful job of raising a bright, intelligent, self-possessed and confident young lady! Here’s a girl for little girls to look to!

Elaine Garner on

Her daddy would be so proud of her..

Lauren on

She’s a beauty!

Rhonda on

She’s an adorable young lady. I wish her all the best in life.

Cindy on

What an amazing kid she has turned out to be! And as others have said, her father would be so proud of her. Terri has done a great job handling everything since his tragic death. I can’t even imagine what she has been through. Best wishes to she and her family!

Barbara on

Wow! She is starting to look like a young woman now. Bindi defiantly looks like her father. I know if he were still alive he would be one beaming dad. Keep up the good work Bindi Irwin!!

Jscott1216 on

She is turning into a very pretty and very respectable young lady. Very classy!

Amelia on

She is beautiful and her father would be so proud:)

greeneyezzz on

She is a gorgeous young women. Her Dad would be so proud of her. I hope all her ambitions and dreams come true. I am sure her Mom is proud and happy she raised such a great young lady.

aly on

Stay real Bindi! Your father would be so proud!

Elisha on

my lord i feel old. I remember seeing her mom waddling around with her in her belly. And I was in junior high/high school. I feel soo old! But Steve would be proud. She’s beautiful.

amy on

She’s lovely and seems to be a very smart, grounded girl. I have to say though, calling a 15 year-old “grown up”is ridiculous . She is still a kid.

gloria on

Very lovely girl! I still get so sad thinking about her Dad.

suzy diamond on

She’s growing into a beautiful woman. Still so sad that her father Steve is not around. Still miss him.

Dont eat your friends on

A few years ago, on the “Ellen” show, she said she ate all the beef jerky in the green room. Well, if I lived at a zoo, and made a career out of caring for animals, I certainly wouldn’t eat them!

Marie on

Damn it, now I feel old. I remember seeing her on Steve’s show and she had to be a toddler.

Gretchen on

“Don’t eat your friends”. if you lived at a zoo and took care of animals, you would better understand the circle of life, and the nature of animals eating animals, etc. You don’t get to tell others what to eat; if I told you what to eat, it would be, “Eat an Angus burger!”! Sheesh, so tired of self-righteous vegetarians and vegans. Your comment was one too many for me this week. Don’t believe in eating meat, don’t eat it, but don’t be all up in everyone else’s face about what they eat…PLEASE..especially someone like Bindi!

dp on

she looks lovely…such a fun time in life…15

Lacey on

Steve would be so proud.

Carmen Robles on

I think she looks great! Her dad would be proud of her,!

valerie on

Beautiful young lady!

Jules on

She is a beautiful young girl and I’m surprised at some of the critical comments. She’s only 15 for crying out loud!

chris on

wow…she looks beautiful. Her dad would be so proud of her.

lorene villarreal on

Beautiful young lady. Her mom has done an amazing job raising her well.

Carrow on

She’s gotten so beautiful. I wish she had her dad during her teen years. They are important influences on young girls.

Aria on

Beautiful girl.

Susan on

She’s grown into a very lovely young lady.

John Taylor on

Not all grown up. Only 15. However, she has made rewmarkable progress. A far cry from her early childhood on TV. What’s mom look like these days?

John on

DADDY would be ever so proud of her.

Jul on

She’s going to be fighting weight b/c the older she gets, the more hippy and leggy she’s going to get………especially after she has a child. Then, it’s going to be wide load.

Jul on

She’s not ” all grown up now ” She’s in the process of becoming a young lady. It’ll take 3 or 4 more years…..

Mary on

I’m sorry, but fifteen is NOT “all grown up.”

doug on

Bindi is beautiful, like her mother. Probably as talented as her father and mother. Miss Steve and his show.

aleighcat on

I think she grew up to be a stunning young lady, and I’m sure her Daddy is looking down, swelled with pride. She’s just like any other teenager experimenting with makeup, but I personally think she’s more beautiful without it. She’s just lovely.

Valliene on

Her father would probably be holding a shotgun, waiting for her first date to show up

tootieq1057 on

We really miss Steve Irwin and his family being on our tv every week. His passing was just tragic and unexpected. He was so proud of his wife and kids and they are all just kind and genuine people. Bindi is just like her father, very gentle and caring and loveable and smart. I hope she stays in the public eye in one way or another. We enjoy seeing her and knowing what’s going on in her life. She grew up into a lovely young lady! Best wishes to you Bindi…

Mamagirl31 on

She’s gorgeous. Her father would be so proud…
