Bindi Irwin, the 15-year-old daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter wowed onlookers on the red carpet at the AACTA Awards in Sydney this week. Steve Irwin would be incredibly proud–not just of how beautiful his daughter has grown up to be, but of her poise, too.

The AACTA Awards celebrate the very best in Australian films and television. Bindi Irwin starred in Return to Nim’s Island in 2013.

Bindi wore a very stylish black floral dress to the awards show. What was so refreshing about her attire–as compared to how some American teen celebrities dress (think Kylie and Kendall Jenner of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family) was that while it was incredibly haute couture and just a tiny bit sexy (did you see those motorcycle boots?), it was completely appropriate for a 15-year-old girl. She wore a hint of makeup, too, and even that was perfect for a teenager. Mom Terri Irwin has no doubt done a very good job raising Bindi (and her little brother Bob) on her own since Steve’s death in 2006.

Bindi Irwin is definitely following in her famous dad’s footsteps, carrying on Steve Irwin’s love of and education about animals.

Bindi recently shared this tweet with her followers.

Are you shocked to see Bindi Irwin all grown up and walking a red carpet at an awards show? It seems like just yesterday she was that little girl trailing her dad around while he taught her all about animals. How wonderful that Bindi is sharing the Crocodile Hunter’s legacy with the world. And how wonderful that she has grown up to be such a self-confident, personable and respectful young woman. Steve Irwin would, indeed, be proud.

    I know that Bindi is maturing and she looks very gorgeous and I'm sure that her dad would be proud of her: but I sort of miss the more down to earth Bindi. May GOD Bless her whatever she does.
