In or Out: Elle Fanning in Louis Vuitton

Posted on December 13, 2011

We would like nothing more than to spare Miss Elle the horrors of having the public vote on her outfit, but action simply must be taken, kittens.

Elle Fanning in Louis Vuitton

First things first: Girl, you aren’t woman enough for that shoe. Come back in a couple or 3 years.

Now. Let’s admit something. We’re not that crazy about the Louis Vuitton spring collection when we see it on (for lack of a better term) “real” people, i.e., non-models. That dress is kind of floaty and princess-y and interesting on the model, but on poor Elle, it’s just a big mess. One could put forth the hypothesis that perhaps Elle isn’t old enough or sophisticated enough to pull off this dress and under normal circumstances, we might agree, but Cate Blanchett herself could not make a very similar dress from the same collection work on her, so we’re prepared to say that these dresses are for the pros to wear.

Also, while there’s some value to a pale, washed-out girl wearing pale, washed-out clothing, Miss Elle defaults to it way, WAY too much. Yes, you’re a little baby starlet, and that’s adorable. But hitting the red carpet like it’s your First Holy Communion is getting just a tad old, girl. Colors are okay. No one will think you’re a strumpet if you wear something red.

We think this look is a disaster, frankly. Minions, as always, have their say:

 

Vote Now!


IN! Floaty and pretty!


OUT! Dress by Kleenex!

 

In other bitchery news, Rose McGowan’s hot glue gun dress got an OUT vote, while Evan Rachel Wood’s prim little outfit got an IN.

      Pleeeease do something with your hair.

        I like her hair because she’s young and it frames her pretty face.

        The dress is a mess. It doesn’t fit or suit her and the hem is just weird.

          I just think even a simple ponytail or something might have helped, so you could see the neckline and shoulders of the dress.

            She’s also way too young to have so much dark root…it hurts me.

              She’s much to FAMOUS to have so much dark root. You have a stylist and a personal army of groomers, girlfriend. No excuses.

        Yes!  I was quite confused! I thought part of the requirements of wearing the dress meant that you had to spend the entire evening with your arms pinioned to your sides.  Madness!  Definitely out!

      This could be cute, if it didn’t look 3 sizes too big for her. The shoes are totally wrong.

        I’m with you. The problem is, it looks huge on the model too. I’m not sure this is a dress that fits anyone in a tailored way, much less a flattering one.
        For shame, Marc Jacobs, for shame. While you’re gallivanting about showing off your sexy body, you’ve made your most body-obscuring collection for women ever. SHAME.

    • vmcdanie

      Out just because I don’t like the dress and the shoes, while fabulous, are too old for her. But she looks so sweet in that picture and seems to be genuinely having a good time so it makes me feel like a bitter old grinch to even type this.

      (not relevant to the judging I know, but she also was brilliant in Super 8)

      I want to give it an IN, but – those shoes are awful. And the dress hangs awkwardly – perhaps a belt of some type? I don’t mind the pale, ethereal look on her, given her age. I’m not sick of it yet.

      I WANT to like the LV collection, but after seeing it on real people, it’s just not working for me. It looks sloppy and unfinished. So, even though I didn’t want to, because I think Elle is adorable, I have to give her an OUT.

      Those shoes are incredibly ugly. The dress is very much in the Elle Fanning mold, so to expect something different from her is hard. I do not think the dress is terrible, but I am leaning slightly toward OUT on this one.

      I like it better on her than the model. You are right on about the shoes, though. I’ll give her an in.

      I actually think Elle is too old for it. This dress might work if you were 10 years old and it had a pale pink satin sash to break up that huge tablecloth in the middle.  Or, if you are a very grown up woman who needs to look totally infantile. Otherwise, forget it.

      The shoes look just plain ridiculous on that little waif. Those are a Woman’s shoes. I don’t care how often they trot her out on the red carpet and slap designer duds on her, she is not a Woman. But she has a gorgeous, young girl smile.

    • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

      OUT – The dress is horrid, the hair is blah, the make-up… okay, I get it, she’s 12 or something, but she needs more than brown mascara and clear lip gloss from the corner drug store. The only thing pretty in that picture is her smile, and that’s not enough for the RC.

      She’s way too young to wear those shoes.  And I don’t like the dress, on her or on the runway model.  Tough love, Miss Fanning….OUT.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.blogspot.com Vivi N

      Um…I think she’s a ‘IN’. The dress is really cute and it looks great on her. The only thing I’ll do is make the dress a bit shorter. Hitting at the knee just so. Also, even though the sandals have a bit of interest to them, not really feeling it. 

      If she likes neutral colors, I say she should go for it. Females know what color works best on them. For Elle, she knows that  pale/neutral is her go to colors. Nothing wrong with that. Just because she wears those colors majority of the time doesn’t mean she’s looking like she’s taking her 1st Holy Communion. Not to ME anyway. The key is that each outfit she wears in that color scheme do not look the same. Not the same silhouette. Not the same cut. Each are different. I’m sure one of these days she’ll bust out in some color. But for right now, I don’t see a problem with it.

      Sadly, an OUT from me too.  I hate to do it to a sweet kid like this, but it’s better that she gets all these bad impulses out of the way while she’s young. I’m sure the idea was that this dress was appropriate for someone her age, but it’s also overworked and too big and too long and just…ugh.  The shoes are torture devices and fug to boot.  I know that she went home and put her feet into a tub of hot water with epsom salts.  And she’s a KID!!!  Poor thing.

      She needs to take your advice, TLo.  Especially about not looking like a strumpet if you wear red.  :)

    • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

      Why did she have to style it exactly like they did on the runway?

      Not that I would have liked this dress on her even if she hadn’t worn the totally age-inappropriate shoes. The material just looks…cheap. Even all the fancy runway lighting barely manages to make it look ethereal. In the real world…no, just no. OUT.

      OUT.  There is just no effort here.  The hair is blah and plain, and she is getting old enough to start doing a little more with it, don’t you think?  Let’s not even start on the dress.  What the designer was smoking to think that was a good idea off the runway, I don’t even want to know.

      Sorry baby, but it’s awful. It makes her look much wider than she is. The color washes her out and those shoes look like she’s wearing a little boy’s rocket toys. (I think they’re hideous – for anyone of any age.)

      On her, the dress looks like window sheers and a table runner sewn together at the 11th hour by a PR contestant in a “use the furnishings of this room to make a dress” challenge.  And those are indeed lady shoes, not girl shoes.  OUT

    • Now I am The Bee

      Oh my sweet Lord NO!  She really looks like she’ playing dress up with her mom’s clothes.  The dress, while it’s interesting, is way too big for her!  I don’t mind the white blonde ethereal look, but she’s just swimming in this thing.  And yes–the shoes are way wrong.  I get the thinking–fierce pointy shoes to keep the sweet dress from looking too twee–but these are just ugly–they need a heel!

      Judging from the other comments, I’m in the decided minority, but I’ll give it a tiny “in.”  I hate the shoes on her, and I don’t really understand the dress (Are those pockets?  Does she need some kindly soul to help her get her arms out of some sort of trap?), but I like the idea of this type of dress on her, and her smile in that first picture is incredibly engaging, so I can’t really reject it outright.

      Ironically, I think the dress needs a more womanly body. A hip upon which one might place a hand that is otherwise not allowed to be seen by the overlay on the skirt. The dress also needs a woman with far more melanin that either Fanning or the model will ever be blessed to rock. I wonder what JLo or Eva Mendez might do with this.

      Out. And on top of that I’d be lying if I didn’t say it really REALLY creeps me out seeing her in the spotlight all the time, now that I have nieces her age (who dress nothing like this by the way and who would be utterly unable to handle the massive nit-picking over their looks). I wish her parents would stop, or at least slow it down, exercise a little restraint for crying out loud.

      She’s so cute but the dress and the shoes are horrible.

      A cut paper antimacassar on organdy curtains paired with super edgy shoes. They don’t go together, and don’t suit this lovely young girl. Her clothes are OUT (but that big old grin is IN).

      You need Lady Gaga styling and attitude for that dress and those shoes.

      OUT!  Just because the model has her arms tucked behind the skirt so as not to hide the dress, that doesn’t mean Elle needs to adopt the same pose.  If she had put her arms in front of the dress, it may have looked better.  MAY… probably not.
      And yes, the shoes are too old for her.  It’s a shame that a girl her age already has foot trauma from wearing shoes (witness the injury on her outside right heel.  Poor thing!

      I WANT THESE SHOES! On the model they look fierce. On Elle as if she’s playing dress up. Ah yes, the dress looks also ridiculous one her. OUT.

      an adorable in.  she looks like the sugarplum fairy.  if only she wore toe shoes (capezios) she would get an IN. those judy jetson shoes are making the model’s ankles look awful- at least i hope it’s the shoes.

      I’m going to have to say OUT, particularly for the disheveled hair and the team-owner’s-wife shoes.

      As I said in the Blanchett post…I like the IDEA of this dress (and, apparently, the whole line)–but they take a good idea and screw it up with too much floaty, bag-like frippery.

      She looks like a child playing dress-up. Send her back to the children’s section. OUT.

      I think the dress looks sweet. IN! However the shoes are very, very horrible They would be horrible on an old wrinkled lady of 25 but they are much more horrible on her.

    • foodycat

      I’m giving it an IN because she is too young for me to OUT. The fact that she can stand up in public puts her so far ahead of where I was at her age that I give her a pass. But I do wonder if she was contractually obliged to stand like that in order to show the sheer saddlebags.

    • Anonymous

      OUT.  And basically, we aren’t giving a sweet young girl an out here but rather some paid stylist and the staff at LV so I don’t feel bad at all.  That dress is a very tall, very thin WOMANs dress who has killa posing and walking abilities.  Find her….

      Oh girl, nooooo. Enough with the white or flesh colored frocks. As best I can remember the last time I saw her in a color was pale pink. Enough already. And trust T and Lo when they tell say you aren’t woman enough for those shoes. True. But I’ll give her some credit for steering clear of super skimpy looks.

      OUT.

      Eh, I agree that she wears way too much washed-out stuff, but this is still pretty cute. I think pretty much only tall 14-year-olds can wear the Louis Vuitton spring collection.

      I hate this dress. There I said it & I feel better for having done so. Honestly, I know this may sound horrific, but I wasn’t in love with the Louis Collection this time around. Some of the dresses I was like… no. This dress on Elle is just all kinds of wrong.

      it’s almost a beautiful dress. the problem is that it isnt fully realized–a strange problem for someone whose been working as long as has marc jacobs. this whole collection has so many gorgeous elements that just dont work well on real people. works on the model cos of all the energy that must have been put into structuring & lighting & styling & photographing it just perfectly. but a person, no matter who she or he is, is simply not able to put that much dress-concentration into every moment of being alive. & being alive, w/ all its inconvenient movements, really does damage to the way the dress presents. not the fault of its wearer in any way.

      edited to add:
      but the shoes, the shoes are terrible all around. they look like shiny pointed bullets about to trip or fall off the feet of the inappropriate person who put them on.

      Out. But ACTUALLY I thought the dress immature on the model. It looks like a younger girls dress, but the fit kills it and no thought into the hair – a chignon, a fitting,  a pink lip and some sweet shoes would have been awesome.

      Out.  Elle is still a kid and I bet she is still a junior size so I don’t think she has enough width to carry this dress.  My daughter is in her teens and a lot of women’s clothing still just doesn’t hang right on her.  She’s still just too narrow, even in small women’s sizes.
      TLo, you are so right about those shoes!  Elle doesn’t have to wear mary janes but she should leave those for the big girls.
