Darlings, let’s all start the day off with some fresh-faced pretty. And you don’t get much more fresh-faced than Elle Fanning. We, along with some of our Bitter Kittens, have been mostly critical of how she’s been dressed for her public appearances, but leave it to Teen Vogue to get it just right: a combination of sweet and sophisticated, with clean lines and bright colors. You won’t see any of the pale ballerina dresses she tends to wear herself. Elle darling, take a hint from Teen Vogue. You really can’t do much better than them in terms of stylishly dressing an under-18.
Granted, in terms of real-world dressing, we do think the styling here borders on juvenile a couple of times, but mostly she looks pretty and chic without looking any more or less her age.
