work it girl: elle fanning

October 19, 2012

that’s right, flip that hair.

i’ve always maintained that elle fanning is one starlet to keep an eye on. ever since her she emerged onto the scene as a 13 year old, she has kept us on her toes by making interesting, unpredictable sartorial choices. she might not always succeed, but kudos to her for taking risks at such a young age and making them work – mostly. i guess the fact that she is 11 feet tall with a gorgeous face helps.

recently, elle has been doing the rounds to promote her new film ginger and rosa . let’s take a look at two of my favorite looks.

:: nyff premiere ::

 for the premiere of the film at the new york film festival, elle wears a vintage printed chiffon gown with a pussybow tie and cuffed sleeves. the color palette of this dress screams autumn. i love it. the dress is the perfect balance between sophisticated and fun – thanks to the print. she wears gold marni wedges (which you cannot really see). slightly wavy hair and a fresh face complete the look. i would have loved to see a major bun or ponytail with this look, but i think the loose hair is part of the appeal.

:: london film festival ::

elle looked ah-mazing at the london film festival wearing a resort 2013 rochas gown with a sheer yoke and a lace neckline. i am all about the big, poufy dresses. the dress is very feminine but doesn’t look princess-y due to the retro floral print. she wears the dress with a mint cardigan thrown over her shoulders, i would have preferred that she left that at home but i do like the confident vibe it is adding to her look.  isn’t there something so vintage/victorian about that lace neckline. i think i would have hated this on anyone else but elle is somehow working it – again, she has the height and the look to take such risks.

    Elle Fanning didn’t emerge on the scene at age 13. She started acting at around age 3 and I believe that was also they age she had her first movie premiere. Also she’s 5″7 almost 5″8. All this info is available on IMDB.

      You realize that I don’t actually think that she is 11 feet tall right??
