, younger sister to Dakota Fanning, has definitely grown up in the spotlight. Walking the red carpets as a very young child, and having an older sister who found fame as a child, Elle has managed to skip the awkward, uncomfortable stage of being a teenager, and skipped straight to being a self-possessed young woman with impeccable style.
Elle has become know for taking fashion risks, and has certainly become the muse of many high fashion designers from Rodarte to Valentino. Today we're sharing some of our favorite and most memorable looks worn by Elle on the red carpet.
Elle perfectly embodied a princess at the premiere of Malificent. With an off-the-shoulder Elie Saab gown in a beautiful baby blue, her entire look from head-to-toe read demure and regal. We also love her deep side part and delicate silver accessories. Showing that she can also rock a playful take on high fashion, Elle wore this gold Rodarte mini dress to a film premiere.
Elle wore this stunning Marc Jacobs baby blue mini dress to the premiere of her film Somewhere at the Venice Film Festival. This is definitely a girl who does minimalist styling right, and how perfect are those gold mary janes? It's pretty incredible when you think about the fact that this is a 16 year old young woman! At 16 it's safe to say that we were nowhere near this pulled together.
For the Met Gala last year, Elle broke the tradition of wearing primarily black by choosing this colorful Rodarte dress with playful eye makeup and simple styling. We also love this cream-colored dress with delicate beading and sheer sleeves. Seriously, is there anything this fashion powerhouse can't wear?
Fanning wore this chic vintage 1930's dress in 2012 at the New York Film Festival and we are loving the way she kept it looking young and fresh with the addition of simple makeup and gold metallic shoes.
One thing is certain, if this is what Elle Fanning has been bringing to the table for her 16 years of age, we can't wait to see what's in store! We want to hear from you! What's your favorite Fanning look? Tell us below in the comments.
