    Too full on “Heidi” for me. 

    • siriuslover

      right, and not the one on PR.

  • Sobaika

    I can not with the hair and someone needs to powder her nose.

    All else is adorable 🙂

    • I agree, that headband is fab and deserves better hair. Her smile is the cutest 🙂

  • schadenfreudelicious

    holy swiss miss, that’s not a good hairdo missy!

  • charlotte

    Gretel got a new church outfit and is PUMPED.

    • Liz

      Gretel better give me her shoes.

  • halleygee

    That must be a T for Terrible….

  • Almost feel like asking her where the lonely goat herder is….the blouse and skirt are nice, but too old for her.  Don’t get me started on the shoes…beige crocheted lace??  Ugh….

    • kschwarting

      I can actually handle everything else, but the shoes are a total fail.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like the shoe with this, but I like that she still manages to look her age. Even the shiny face is somehow adorable.

    • kschwarting

      I agree.  As a pink-cheeked blonde myself, I’m happy to see her embracing her natural face.  She’s still just a kid.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Aw, Cindy Brady grew up to be a truck stop waitress.

  • Cute pieces individually, even the shoes. All together, with the hair? Too much Swiss Miss. 

  • I really like her style.  This looks really put together and is totally her, but I don’t love it, not sure what it is.

  • BrooklynBomber

    I’m frightened.

  • i cant get over how fabulous those shoes are!
    overall a good look, i think.

  • Kate4queen

    I swear to god I had something like that in blue from Laura Ashley in the 80’s…

  • VeryClaire

    No one is young and fresh enough to pull off this Swiss Miss look, not even Elle.  Without the hair, cute, but who can see past the hair?

  • Oh honey no. 

  • Annabelle Archer

    Sweet Heidi Hell!

  • Oh, HEIDI, no.

  • ralish

    This is a weird outfit, but if I were an adorable pre-teen with tons of free designer clothes, I’d want to play dress up sometimes too! Pretty dresses can wait another few years– bring on the costume!

    • In_Stitches

       Exactly!  She’s not playing the game, she’s just having fun.  Why shouldn’t she? 

    • Except she’s not a pre-teen…she’s 14 1/2 years old.

      • Though not a pre-teen, she’s still a kid. I’d rather see a girl her age wear something like this than another trashy “I am fuckable now…right?” dress. 

      •  She is pretty much exactly my daughter’s age.   My fingers are in my ears….SHE’S STILL A BABY.    Uh, you, too, Malia Obama.   STOP REMINDING ME THAT MY DAUGHTER IS GROWING UP.      /old lady

      • Ali

         I wore my hair like this a few times at 14 – although with those butterfly hair clips that were so popular in the 90s, rather than Elle’s flowers. At 14, you’re still finding yourself and experimenting with what you like. It’s natural to be all over the map. I think this is adorable on her.

  • It’s cute, but she needs to brush her hair.

  • DeborahJozayt

    You are not Julie Andrews on the Muppet Show. Stop it this instant.

  • Kathy_Marlow

    first impression: MY EYES!!! 

  • thecitysleeps

    I’ll take everything except the shoes.  

  • Karen Belgrad

    High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
    Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

  • Honey, take this outfit and give it to Marion Cotillard….she needs to change out of the spider web raincoat she’s wearing.  Marion would look SUPER in this D&G!

  • Judy_J

    Ginger, indeed!  She looks like Ginger Rogers in “The Major and the Minor”.

    • PeaceBang

      I so love you forever for referencing that movie.

      • Judy_J

        It’s one of my faves.  And I’m a huge fan of Ginger Rogers.

  • kikisayshi

    Umm… The skirt’s cute.

  • AuntieAnonny

    I don’t think I’ve ever liked and hated the same pair of shoes so much before.

  • frannyprof

    I would love to hear the TLo take on miss milkmaid secretary here.

  • She looks like an overgrown seven year old with her scrubbed face and beauty pageant smile.  She scares me.

  • TheLaurenJean


  • LesYeuxHiboux

    It’s like she’s a stewardess for Hansel unt Gretel Air! I wish the hair wasn’t so straggly ans the blouse were less severe: shorter sleeves and a more crisp fabric, perhaps in a rich green to pull out the leaves in the headband and bring some color to her face. She’s adorable, all the same. 

  • granddelusion

    What the hell?

  • A B

    “May I recommend the Hasenpfeffer, ja?”

  • Deedles

    Awwww… c’mon gentlemen! You should have also included the photo of Elle with Christina Hendricks in her dog-collar dress! That could have been your first post for “A Study in Contrasts!” Oh, and GIMME A “T!” is all I can think of when I look at this blouse and poodle skirt without the poodle.

  • I would cheerfully cut you all for those shoes, but the blouse is taking me straight to Sesame Street:  http://youtu.be/ABaWlQgzh90

  • A


  • briecee

    Did she do something to offend the letter T?  It’s large and dark and angry and about to eat her alive.

    Otherwise, acceptable, but only because she’s young enough for her quirks to be cute instead of mistakes.

  • sweetlilvoice

    Adorable, it’s nice to see someone on the red carpet looking happy.

  • alyce1213

    It’s a bit Eva Braun-ish for me, if you know what I mean.

    • l_c_ann

      Ja, wir wissen.

  • A

    I like this outfit enough, but I would loooooveeee it on Marion Cotillard! I like the shoes too for some reason I don’t quite yet understand. Most importantly, Elle has got to do something about her hair color! It’s a very ugly and brassy yellow, this works for no one!!!

  • greymain

    shiny face MUST go…

  • Headband is for a 7-yo.

  • l_c_ann

    Inger Stephens, the war years when there was no face powder.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I wish the skirt was shorter.

  • Weird hair.
    WHY IS SHE ALWAYS SO SHINY!!?! this is a recurrent issue with her.

  • Is it possible for something to be TOO cutesy for a 14-year-old?

  • MaryanneGirl

    Yes, yes. Her aesthetic. Maybe I”m just crabby, but this whole outfit irritates me. 

  • marilyn

    Horrible.  This is couture?  It looks like high school square dancing attire.  How did she go from the sophisticated look yesterday to this?  She can be excused because she is young.  However, her stylist should know better.

  • CT14

    Just no.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    “Our Miss Brooks…The Early Years.”

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Serving up Mary Bell realness.

  • nannypoo

    Poor kid. She shouldn’t have to go out looking like this. Every element is bad, with the hair and that silly headband at the top of the list. She’s a cute girl, but no one is cute enough to get away with an outfit like this.

  • RedRaven617

    I really  thought this was a joke when I first saw the photo. Sorry, but ugh!

  • Michael Owens

    The worst—from head to toe.

  • Zippypie

    Wow, she dressed as a pilgrim for Halloween.  How sweet.

  • JauntyJohn

    As a wise old queen once told me, “Sometimes when you leave the house you’re wearing clothes.  Sometimes you’re wearing an outfit.  And sometimes… sometimes you’re wearing a costume.”
    THAT is a costume. I like the silhouette (thanks, Spellcheck!) and in the Big Smile pic I think she looks adorable.
    But those Fanning girls in general read a bit tightly wound to me. 

  • altalinda

    Well, that was good for a laugh.

  • Anathema_Device

    She looks so damned happy in that getup that I can’t hate it. Well, yes, I guess I can hate it b/c I kind of do, but she is really selling the shit out of it.

  • everest19

    Oh, hunny….

  • SophieCollier

    Something kind of Aryan about this look.  

  • mia

    I didn’t realize my local high school was going to put on a production of His Girl Friday

  • Rebecca Jay

    Yodelayheeeehoooohahahahahaaa.  This is a joke, right?

  • poohbah1

    A young Eva Braun fifteen minutes before she meets Adolf.

  • Edelweiss,edelweiss, every morning you greet me…..! la la la la

  • MightyMarshal

    Well she looks stupid.

  • SewingSiren

    Awesome. I think this kid has a great stylish edge about her. 

  • guest2visits

    I think what she’s doing with her hair is cute; but other than her pretty face, this is just not working at all.
    Not a flattering blouse – especially with the heavy cross-like bow.   (I thought Christina Hendricks when I saw this).
    It’s just hanging off her, and the shoes are terrible; very cheap and old looking. 
    She looks like she’s working the dining room at the Bavarian Inn.

  • LambeeBaby

    Dah? May I fill your schtein vis my some of my Oktoberfesht beir?

  • Mazenderan

    She’s 14, seems happy and comfortable in the outfit, and isn’t plastered in make-up.  All fine by me.

  • PeaceBang

    A very bad case of the cutes. Look away.

  • PeaceBang

    When I saw the whiteboard image I could just envision a deranged stage mother in the wings shouting, “SMILE, BABY, SMILE!”

  • joancarol

    She looks like a mental patient here.

  • quiltrx

    “How do you solve a problem like Elle-Fan-ning?”


  • crash1212

    Heidi goes to prom.

  • Trisha26

    Amish Heidi.

  • MK03


  • They hired her to wait tables?

  • julnyes

    Is it that they want her to look “dewy” because that connotes youth and are adding dewiness to her already young face, but it just turns into shiny in the glare of the lights? 

  • Qitkat

    I dislike the blouse, a lot. She has beautiful skin, but it’s a bit too pink and shiny. Hair is cute, for a little girl. She is still so very young, and occasionally missteps, like here. But it’s going to be interesting to see how her looks and style changes as she matures, in 5 to 10 years she will still be lovely, and able to pull off edgier. However, I’m not even going to consider how my looks and style will change in the next 5 to 10 years. Yikes. LOL.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    “Swiss Miss Instant Cocoa with Mini-Marsh-Malloooooows!”  Anyone remember that little jingle?

    • boweryboy


  • boweryboy

    Why, oh why is her face so oily and shiny all the time?  A little powder compact with a mirror would do her wonders.

  • Ginger Rogers, more like.

  • Emily Wilson

    I adore the shoes, but she looks like like a nun-in-training from Austria

  • The hair is horrible. Just horrible. The rest is okay.

  • MzzPants


  • librarygrrl64

    On anyone else, I would hate this. But except for the shoes and the messy hair, she looks adorable.
