Gen Z was out in full force at at Time 100 Next: Meet the most influential young people in the world

Watch out, boomers: Gen Z has arrived.

Among the famous faces at the Time 100 Next event Thursday night were a handful of ultra-influential teenagers who have taken the world by storm. Robert Irwin, the 15-year-old son of late nature enthusiast Steve Irwin, looked dapper in a blue suit, and 18-year-old social media star Emma Chamberlain arrived in an all-black ensemble.

Some of the year's buzziest young Time honorees, Billie Eilish, 17, and Lil Nas X, who turned 20 this year, were unable to make it, but there was plenty of remaining star power on the red carpet. Keke Palmer, who recently joined the "Good Morning America" co-hosting crew, looked glam as ever in a champagne mini, while Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman rocked a demure one-shoulder number.

Never one to shy away from color, singer Camila Cabello jokingly flashed goofy faces at the paparazzi in her tuxedo-style mini with bold pink puff sleeves. Meanwhile, "Riverdale" actress Lili Reinhart was a lovely holiday present come to life in an ivory gown with allover black velvet bows.

Time 100 Next is an expansion of the magazine's existing Time 100 franchise, and the list "spotlights 100 rising stars who are shaping the future of business, entertainment, sports, politics, science, health and more." The youngest individual on this year's list is 14-year-old figure skater Alysa Liu, the first U.S. female to ever land a quadruple Lutz in a competition.

Also landing on the list were "When They See Us" actor Jharrel Jerome, presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, Olympian Dutee Chand, and Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi, who created the organization Stand to End Rape and was honored as an Obama Foundation emerging leader.
