Jul 20 2014 - 7:00am

Sure, we can look at photos of icons like Jennifer Aniston [1] and Beyoncé all day and enjoy ourselves completely. But every once in a while, there's a new face who comes onto the scene who makes us do a collective double-take. There is a whole new crop of standout ladies who are on the brink of full-blown beauty stardom. See the 16 girls we'll be able to say we loved before they were huge. Ready to get in on the action?

Sophie Turner

Who she is: Sophie Turner

How you know her: The young actress plays Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

Why we love her: That long red hair is something we can't help but envy. Of all the Game of Thrones characters, she rocks our favorite braided hairstyles [2]. And it doesn't hurt that she knows how to wear a red lip, too.

Debby Ryan

Who she is: Debby Ryan

How you know her: She's the singing and acting powerhouse behind the hit Disney show Jessie.

Why we love her: Debby never met a hair color she didn't love. She's almost caught up to Demi Lovato [3] in the amount of shades she's tried. Most recently, Debby rocked a blond and purple ombré look [4].

Elle Fanning

Who she is: Elle Fanning

How you know her: She's Dakota Fanning [5]'s little sister, who recently played alongside Angelina Jolie [6] in Maleficent.

Why we love her: Elle plays up her alabaster complexion and blond hair to a T. She is the epitome of innocent beauty, yet you can always spot her in the front row during Fashion Week. This 16-year-old is about two years away from becoming a fashion and beauty muse.

Zendaya Coleman

Who she is: Zendaya Coleman

How you know her: She starred alongside Bella Thorne in Disney's Shake It Up!, then launched her singing career with the hit dance groove "Replay." You can also spot her in a recent Coca-Cola commercial.

Why we love her: Rihanna [7] better watch out because Zendaya is a triple threat (singer, dancer, and fashion darling). She represents the resurgence of '90s beauty for a new generation, sporting everything from awesome nail art to cornrows on the red carpet.

Jennette McCurdy

Who she is: Jennette McCurdy

How you know her: She's a Nickelodeon star headlining shows like iCarly and Sam and Cat.

Why we love her: Jennette is more than a pretty face and stellar voice; she has actually taken time out to write articles [8] for The Wall Street Journal. But while some stars are going over the top to get noticed, she keeps her girl-next-door beauty look intact.

Victoria Justice

Who she is: Victoria Justice

How you know her: She showcased her singing and acting talents on Nickelodeon's Victorious and recently released her first single, "Gold."

Why we love her: All the bright lips! From bubblegum pink to candy-apple red, Victoria doesn't stray from trying out neon makeup hues.

Suki Waterhouse

Who she is: Suki Waterhouse

How you know her: She's a model who recently starred in the latest fragrance ad for Burberry [9]. Oh, and she just so happens to be dating Bradley Cooper [10].

Why we love her: Step aside, Cara Delevingne. Suki's got brows we go crazy for, and her red carpet looks have been increasingly elegant.

Hailee Steinfeld

Who she is: Hailee Steinfeld

How you know her: She portrays Juliet in the latest incarnation of Romeo and Juliet and scooped up a best supporting actress nomination for her role in True Grit.

Why we love her: Hailee isn't afraid to take a risk, whether it's sporting bold-colored eye shadow or pop-art nails at Comic Con [11]. And if there's one thing we love, it's a beauty risk-taker.

Kiernan Shipka

Who she is: Kiernan Shipka

How you know her: You've watched her grow up as Sally Draper on Mad Men.

Why we love her: Kiernan always looks immaculate on the red carpet, sometimes outshining her much-older costars. If only we'd had a coif and brows that fabulous [12] at 14 years old . . .

Ariana Grande

Who she is: Ariana Grande

How you know her: Ariana is slowly winning the hearts of tweens across America, with songs like "Put Your Hearts Up" and "Problem." She also starred in her own Nickelodeon show, Sam and Cat.

Why we love her: Ariana's got some attitude on the red carpet, and she loves to play with colors. Remember those fluorescent blue nails [13] she rocked while performing at the VMAs?

Bella Thorne

Who she is: Bella Thorne

How you know her: She had her breakout roll in Wizards of Waverly Place alongside Selena Gomez [14]. She also snagged a skincare contract [15] with Neutrogena.

Why we love her: Nail art, nail art, and more nail art. Bella Thorne is always on her manicure A-game, whether it's cute cats [16], adorable polka dots [17], or an oversize bow [18].

Lupita Nyong'o

Who she is: Lupita Nyong'o

How you know her: She stars in the critically acclaimed 12 Years a Slave and won an Oscar for the role. She also recently signed with Lancome [19].

Why we love her: We've never seen Lupita mess up on the red carpet, but you should expect guts like that from a girl who confidently rocks a shaved hairstyle [20].

Bella Heathcote

Who she is: Bella Heathcote

How you know her: She starred with Johnny Depp [21] in Dark Shadows.

Why we love her: Her hair and makeup is always flawless on the red carpet, whether she's showing us how to play up our fringe or pairing red lipstick and eye shadow perfectly.

Saoirse Ronan

Who she is: Saoirse Ronan

How you know her: She portrayed the young Briony Tallis in Atonement and is starring in the upcoming Grand Budapest Hotel.

Why we love her: Saoirse always, always exudes poise and elegance on the red carpet. She brings to mind the aesthetic of classic beauty icons Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelley to all her premieres.

Holland Roden

Who she is: Holland Roden

How you know her: As Lydia Martin on Teen Wolf.

Why we love her: Holland is the boho best friend we always wish we had. Her braids are incredible, her curls are better, and her looks always garner a double-take from us.

Chloë Moretz

Who she is: Chloë Moretz

How you know her: She most recently starred as the titular role in the remake of Carrie, but we fell in love with her as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's little sister in (500) Days of Summer.
