Is that you, Bindi Irwin?!

The daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin stepped out Thursday, Jan. 30 to attend the 3rd Annual AACTA Awards in Sydney where she looked nothing like the little girl we grew up watching on TV.

Shedding her signature khaki attire she's often seen sporting at the Australia Zoo, the blond beauty opted for a pretty monochromatic floral dress which she paired with black motorcycle boots.

The 15-year-old beauty wore her long locks down, adding a touch of subtle (and age-appropriate) makeup to her look for the evening while enjoying a laugh on the carpet as she beamed from ear to ear and posed for pics.

Bindi—who's dad died in September 2006 at the age of 44 after he was pierced in the chest by a sting ray—has matured into an impressive young woman in recent years as she continues her to carry on her father's mission of wildlife conservation.

"With dad, he was the ultimate wildlife warrior and we admired him more than anything," she told E! News November. "Dad honestly was incredible. We never got nervous about him with animals, but I do remember he gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me forever. He said, 'You have to treat animals the way you wish to be treated.' Which is so true. And I think that applies to all animals."

"He was the greatest dad on the planet," she continued. "He was our inspiration, who we looked up to the most and, for us, we wanna carry on his legacy. We wanna make sure that his message of wildlife and conservation continues, because he was the world's greatest conservationist and so we never want that message to die."

Irwin, who has spent her entire life living in a zoo, most recently Instagrammed an adorable photo with a koala from the The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital.
