Bindi Irwin isn't exactly stepping out of her late father's shoes, but she's walking a path of her own.

The daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin showed off her stunning looks in a black-and-white Instagram post earlier this month, showing her in a different light.

"I'll always feel most comfortable in khaki surrounded by animals, but it is really fun to try different styles," Bindi, 16, told Us Weekly. "I'm kind of stepping away from khaki."

Her new mature look doesn't disappoint. Her Instagram photo went viral after she posted the selfie. "To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others," she wrote on that snap. "You need to accept yourself. 'What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful."

Her change in wardrobe and expanded color wheel has nothing to do with her heart -- the wildlife conservationist is still committed to her dad's legacy and still incredibly committed to wildlife. Bindi, along with her mother, Terri, and her little brother, Robert, still help run the Queensland's Australia Zoo, which her late father took over in the 1990s, before being killed in 2006 in a stingray attack.

Aside from her work with the zoo, the teen beauty also works with her parents' Wildlife Warriors organization, and has a Netflix show, "Bindi's Boot Camp."

"I hope he'd be proud," she said, of her father. "That's my end goal. He was like our living, breathing superhero. He was so passionate and clever."
