Storm Reid & Rowan Blanchard Speak On Stage At 'Teen Vogue' Summit

Storm Reid and Rowan Blanchard share the stage while attending the Teen Vogue Summit LA on Saturday (December 2) in Playa Vista, Calif.

The young co-stars were joined by their A Wrinkle In Time director Ava DuVernay, as well as their co-star Reese Witherspoon‘s daughter Ava Phillippe.

Also in attendance were Yara Shahidi, Aly & AJ, Lilly Singh, Chloe x Halle, and Hillary Clinton.

Yara also interviewed Hillary during a keynote conversation at the event.

“I’m glad that I’m here at 14 saying that it’s not right to inspire other young girls to say ‘it’s not right’ too,” Storm said at the event. “If it’s happening to you, speak up, don’t be afraid. There’s nothing they can do, even if they say they’re going to do something, there’s nothing they can do. You need to speak up, you need to speak out, not only for yourself, but for other young women that feel threatened, not only in this industry, but in other industries.”

FYI: Rowan is wearing Repossi jewelry. Storm is wearing a Ji Oh outfit and Rebecca Minkoff boots. Yara is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim top and pants, Jimmy Choo shoes, Young Frankk earrings, and an Eriness necklace and rings. Ava is wearing a L’Agence dress, Malone Souliers shoes, and Lady Grey earrings. Chloe and Halle are wearing Missoni.
