Young Jenna From "13 Going On 30" Re-Created Her Iconic Look, And She Really Is Thriving
She's (almost) 30 and flirty and thriving.
One of the more delightful things I discovered during quarantine is that Christa B. Allen, who played Young Jenna Rink in
13 Going on 30, has an excellent TikTok account where she regularly makes content about the movie.
So about a month ago, when Christa fully re-created Young Jenna's iconic birthday look, I was overwhelmed with nostalgia.
And so was everyone else — the TikTok has 9.9 million views and rising!
Let's break it down. For starters, "Crazy for You" by Madonna? Check! The white lace leggings and green flats? Check and check!

Scrunchie? You bet!
Makeup and star-shaped earrings? Yep!
Blue off-the-shoulder top with a white belt? Check!

She absolutely, 100% nailed it!
And now that the original video has gone mega viral, Christa just followed up with a brand-new video showing us all how we can be Young Jenna for Halloween this year!
Thank you for both making my day and for making my Halloween plans this year, Christa!
No joke, this is me dressed as 30-year-old Jenna last year, and I'm seriously considering going as Young Jenna now to complete the cycle.
