Impending Winter Storm Nemo did not deter the tweens who descended upon Aéropostale’s Times Square outpost for a dual celebration on Thursday night: Chloë Grace Moretz’s Sweet 16 birthday bash and Teen Vogue’s 10th-anniversary party (the actress is on the magazine’s March cover and an Aéropostale brand ambassador). The store’s upper level had been transformed into a teenybopper paradise filled with helium balloons, a photo booth, lollipops, cakes, virgin cocktails and Venetian masquerade masks.

Julianne Moore, Victoria Justice, Jake T. Austin, Harley Viera-Newton, Atlanta de Cadenet and Irish pop duo John and Edward Grimes, also known as Jedward, turned out for the party, which featured musical performances by Swedish synth-pop artists Icona Pop and “America’s Most Talented Kids” winner and singer Tori Kelly. The crowd, comprised mostly of teenage girls and fans of Moretz, could be found taking self-portraits on their iPhones at any given moment.

The actress, clad in Chanel and an Aéropostale leather jacket, revealed that her real birthday falls on Feb. 10.

“But I got my presents today,” she said, motioning toward her wrist. “It’s a silver diamond bracelet with my letter, ‘C.’ And I got this ring, it’s Victorian and it’s opal.”

The biggest perk of the milestone birthday, however, will be the ability to drive.

“I have literally just applied for my permit,” she said. “My mom is teaching me. I know how to drive stick. My mom is like, ‘I don’t wanna buy you a new car. I’m gonna give you my car and I’m gonna get a new car.’ And I’m like, ‘Ugh! Teri! Why are you doing this to me?’”

“Modern Family” actress Sarah Hyland, now 22, reflected on her own sweet 16 party.

“I was doing ‘Grey Gardens’ on Broadway,” she said. “My 16th birthday was on a Saturday — which you’d think would be awesome — but we had a five-show weekend, so I had two shows that day. And I went to Olive Garden. I went…to Olive Garden. Unlimited breadsticks on my birthday.”
