Elle Fanning for 7Hollywood Magazine

Posted on November 14, 2013

For your Pretty of the Day, here’s pretty little Elle playing dressup for 7Hollywood. Because bless her heart, no matter what she wears or how hard she works that camera, she still comes across like a little girl in her big sister’s closet. Very cute pics.

 

 

Elle Fanning covers the 7Hollywood Magazine ‘Fantasy’ issue in a Chanel couture dress photographed by Alix Malka.

But let’s face it, posting these pics of Miss Elle is really just an excuse for us to post the trailer for Maleficent, where she has the unenviable task of playing the ultimate good girl, Princess Aurora, against what looks to be a deliciously evil Angelina as the title character:

A thousand drag queens spontaneously wept. That looks fun.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Angelina was born to play that role. If only Jennifer Aniston played Aurora, it would be so perfect.

      • lillyvonschtupp

        Jennifer couldn’t play a mushroom in a first-grade play.

        • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

          And she would never accept a role in which she’s not required to show off her body.

          • Mismarker

            Not true. The Good Girl.

            • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ Terri Smith

              I tell people who don’t like Jennifer Aniston that they have to watch her in ‘The Good Girl.’ Not because it will automatically force people to love her, but it at least shows her range more than her blockbuster movies.

            • Mismarker

              Exactly. I’m not a big fan but if you haven’t seen her in that movie you aren’t allowed to judge what she can and can’t do. It’s a shame she isn’t doing (or being offered?) more roles like that.

            • Shawn EH

              Horrible Bosses. She’s good at evil, too, she should be a different angry Disney queen.

            • NYCGlamourpuss

              You’re right, I do have to give her credit for “Horrible Bosses”.

            • Danielle

              Yes!! LOVED her in that role. Probably because it was so outside of her wheelhouse.

            • Shawn EH

              But maybe it should really BE her wheelhouse. I mean, if you think back, Rachel was kind of a spoiled brat when Friends began, and sometimes later on with Ross, too.

            • ana170

              I hear people bring up “The Good Girl” a lot as an example of her range. The problem is that, while she was fine in the role, she didn’t really own it. I can think of a lot of other actresses who could play that role and do it just as well or better and that’s the problem: I’m not supposed to wonder who else would be good in it. For example, as much as I can’t stand Gwyneth, I’ve never found myself mentally recasting her movie roles (after having seen them) because she owns every role she’s in.

            • Mismarker

              You’re right about Jennifer not owning a role but, in truth, very few actresses have the ability to make a role completely theirs. When I think of actresses truly owning a role I think of the great performances of Cate Blanchett in “Elizabeth”, Tilda Swinton in “Orlando”, or Helen Mirren in “The Queen”. Not Gwyneth Paltrow in, say, “Country Strong”.

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

              She was also unexpectedly good in We are the Millers. Actually, everything about that movie was better than I expected.

        • Rand Ortega

          F.T.W!

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Heeeee! I love you!

        • d4divine

          Lol

        • Brown

          you just won TLo’s forums for the day

    • Inês Martins

      the cover is giving me a bit of kate bosworth.

      • ampg

        I thought young Anna Faris.

    • Mismarker

      She’s got a gorgeous face and great presence.

    • gabbilevy

      The cover isn’t setting me on fire, but the second and third images are really, really good.

      • kimmeister

        Meanwhile, I am more struck by the cover. Maybe because it somehow reminds of a more polished Madonna from the 80’s.

        • mshesterp

          I think the cover is absolutely arresting. I think she could develop some great modeling chops.

    • lillyvonschtupp

      That Giambattista is beautiful. When will Kenley reproduce it?

      • SophiaPehawkins

        Leave Kenley alone! No matter how weird and crazy and plagiaristic she is/was, I’ll try and defend her.

        How could you not love, “I wasn’t going for elegant, Heidi.”

        • sojourneryouth

          Oh, it’s pretty easy not to love cluelessness, I think.

          • SophiaPehawkins

            It was bratty and obnoxious, but it was entertaining, at least to me, how painfully unaware she was about herself.

    • PinkySlinky

      miss angie givin’ so much FACE!

    • sojourneryouth

      I’m unexpectedly impressed! Yeah, she looks young, but at least she doesn’t look vacant, bored, or pissy in her photos like some younger actresses. I wish I couldn’t see the effort involved in her working it so much, but she looks pretty amazing in these shots.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      “Sleeping Beauty” was always my favorite Disney princess movie. I loved Prince Philip, but, as I got older, I noticed that he and Maleficent had a surprisingly provocative bondage-dominance thing going on in it.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I loved that movie,too-Malificent was scary as hell, Aurora was lovely and I adored Prince Phillip.

      • kimmeister

        Prince Philip is one of the few (or only?) princes who actually had to fight for his love. Love him! Also love the score of that movie.

        • Derek_anny

          kind of hard to mess up the score when it’s written by Tchaikovsky. Ok, it’s adapted from Tchaikovsky, but my point remains.

      • fursa_saida

        Maleficent was my favorite growing up. I used to pretend to be her all the time.

        • ellisd123

          One of my very first adult Halloween costumes was Maleficent, which I painstakingly sewed, stitched, and glued in my college dorm room. I am SO there!

      • demidaemon

        I think that is the reason Maleficent was tapped to be the leader of the Disney Villains Council of Evil in the crossover monstrosity videogame that is the Kingdom Hearts saga. She is on the same level of villainry as Lex Luthor and Dr. Doom.

    • boweryboy

      She doesn’t have the gravitas to pull off any of those looks.

      • Trickytrisha

        Uh, you expect a 15 year old to have gravitas?

        • Sabin

          Mine does. But she’s got Asperger’s, so it sort of comes with the territory.

        • boweryboy

          Good point. Clearly the stylist does.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        I disagree, I think she’s got the model chops. (Notice to all, see how I used my words there, like a big girl? I didn’t just down vote and scurry off to study hall.)

        • Rand Ortega

          I adore you.

          • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

            Back at ya.

            • NYCGlamourpuss

              I agree with you, and adore both of you, you non-down voting, verbalizing bitches!

      • StellaZafella

        I think Angelina pulls this look off VERY well… THIS Old, Retired Drag Queen wept…..

        oh, you mean Elle.

        um…

        • Ginny Ellsworth

          I love you. Today and always.

    • Evan

      Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite Disney movie because Maleficent is the best Disney villain. She’s so evil and beautiful at the same time. Plus, I think it’s the best illustrated of all the hand drawn Disney movies. Jolie was perfect casting because of her cheek bones.

      • http://skreened.com/bkcentral Sarah

        I also think Sleeping Beauty is the most beautifully drawn. And I happen to love the soundtrack. It remains my favorite of All Time.

        • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

          The animation is GORGEOUS. Have you seen the making-of featurette on the DVD? It’s fantastic.

          • http://skreened.com/bkcentral Sarah

            Alas, I don’t own the DVD. I had it on VHS, and it went the way of all my others when I got rid of the VCR a few years back. *Laments*

        • Mismarker

          And now I’m humming “Once Upon a Dream”. Thanks!

      • SinisterKid

        I hate to be contrary… but Yzma and Ursula are villains extraordanaire. Maybe it’s a purple lady fetish. Dunno.

        • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

          This. This this this. Malificent was the most beautiful, but Ursula was the most fun. I find myself humming “Poor Unfortunate Souls” at least once a week.

          • fursa_saida

            For me, Maleficent and Ursula are tied, followed by the evil queen from Snow White solely for the scene where she puts on her crone look.

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            I love Ursula for Disney’s take on the octopus evening dress bottom as their take on a mermaid fishtail, and for “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” But Maleficent will always have my heart for the the speech where, after she captures Prince Phillip, she taunts him about his future with Aurora:

            “Oh come now Prince Phillip! Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you – you, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true. Behold – King Stefan’s castle. And in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the Princess Aurora. But see the gracious whim of fate – why, ’tis the self-same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday! She is indeed, most wondrous fair. Gold of sunshine in her hair, lips that shame the red, red rose. In ageless sleep, she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart, are but a day! And now, the gates of a dungeon part, and our prince is free to go his way. Off he rides, on his noble steed, a valiant figure, straight and tall! To wake his love, with love’s first kiss. And prove that ‘true love’ conquers all!”

            The absolute venom with the way she spits out “true love conquers all” at the end still just give me chills – Eleanor Audley, who voiced her, was brilliant. And the animation that goes a long with it is wonderful – that sad, pathetic image of a now elderly Prince Phillip leaving the gates of the castle on his old, aged horse, both of them slowly loping out with their heads down – just so sad, and so magnificent at the same time. For my money, Disney can’t top themselves on that one, it’s always been my favorite.

            • mshesterp

              God, now I have to go track down and rewatch that movie. I always loved the three fairies–specifically Merryweather. Tres adorables.

            • Anna_Cecilia

              OMG, you just made my life this morning. Maleficent is my favourite Disney villainess and Sleeping Beauty my favourite Disney movie (mostly because of her). Eleanor Audley was also fantastic as Lady Tremaine in Cinderella.

              CANNOT wait for this movie.

            • Ginny Ellsworth

              Brownie points if you did this from memory.

            • NYCGlamourpuss

              Oh, no honey, thank you for even thinking that I did! I remembered some of it, but I wanted to make sure it was perfect, so I IMDB’d it from their quotes section. Although, I do have to give BIG props to them that IMDB included such an awesome speech for what is thought by many to be just a childrens’ movie. Of course, we BKs know that it’s so much more!

            • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

              That is a damn fine speech. I just went to find it on youtube and you’re right, Eleanor Audley injected an impressive amount of venom without making it seem too melodramatic or campy.

            • NYCGlamourpuss

              It’s the part when they show him as an old man on his old horse loping out of the castle in defeat where she’s REALLY winding up (“Off he rides, on his noble steed, a valiant figure, straight and tall!”) that’s just so particularly cruel, because at that point, her voice is rising as she taunts him – you can tell she’s totally getting into it, and really enjoying herself. For a kids’ movie, by Disney, in the 50s, it’s really quite amazing. I just absolutely get chills at that moment, and my heart just breaks during that scene.

            • Derek_anny

              Dear NYCGlamourpuss,
              I love you.

        • StellaZafella

          Ms. Kitt was born to be Yzma and Pat Caroll did a great job voicing Ursula…but Google Raven from Drag Race from this Halloween and you’ll see the living embodiment of the “octo-witch”.

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            Oh, Raven looked AMAZING as Ursula! And Ivy Winters goes around in Maleficent drag all the time, too!

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I completely agree, it’s always been my favorite. The illustrations are stunning, and Maleficent is gorgeous. You can kind of see what they were aiming for with the Wicked Queen in “Snow White”, but Maleficent is done much better for evil glamour. And Angelina is perfect for this!

      • ellisd123

        Yes to ALL of this!

    • LeelaST

      Love the necklace in the first shot. The black & white leopard shot is stunning.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I LOVE the top half of the first dress on her!!! She should NOT be wearing the Jean Paul Gaultier dress, it is NOT right for her.

    • MilaXX

      The movie looks like fun and that’s saying a lot considering I am not an Angie fan. The photo shot is creepy because she is so clearly a child dressed up in adult clothing.

    • http://skreened.com/bkcentral Sarah

      I like that necklace in the first shot, but the…hat? fascinator? in the last looks like a giant bug is sucking on her scalp. It creeps me out.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      I’d love her to star in the Jocelyn Wilderstein Story as the before and Sharon Needles as the after.

    • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

      Not wowed by the trailer, and I love Maleficent as a character. Looks too CGI-ish, like that Oz movie they just made.

      • Evan

        I agree. Even though I’m not an Angie fan, I think she was perfect casting for the role, but there’s way too much CGI and it looks really fake and cartoonish.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Am I wrong in wanting Malificent to totally kick ass in this movie? My bad.

      • http://skreened.com/bkcentral Sarah

        She’s the title character, and played by a huge star, so it stands to reason that we might get a little deeper exploration of her character, at least, don’t it? Maybe?

    • alyce1213

      The movie looks like it night be fun, but I object to the affectatious Hollywood-British accents. Is that supposed to give the movie extra dignity? It annoys me.
      I like her in the first and last outfits. The Gaultier is just wrong. The spikey fake lashes are cheap looking. But what a face!

      • Alloy Jane

        I second this objection. They do know we all know they’re both American, right? Why can’t they just talk normally? Plus, the Brothers Grimm were German. Wtf shitty British accent?

        • Derek_anny

          And Perrault was French.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      I once took an online quiz, Which Disney Villain Are You? I answered with 100% honesty and got Maleficent, I was riding high for the rest of the day. Also, elf came out with Villains inspired cosmetics line and it’s pretty fab.
      I love the shots of Elle, I liked the trailer. Y’all know that is Vivienne as young Aurora, yes? I am super excited for this movie!

      • StellaZafella

        I just always wanted Maleficent’s staff and horned cowl…oh, and the ability to turn my enemies to ash.

      • Lori

        I loved the fact that they cast Vivienne because she was the only little kid they could find who didn’t run screaming from Angelina in full make-up.

    • nannypoo

      She’s a great model and she wears makeup really well. But she looks like Adele in the first picture and Carey Mulligan in the second.

    • YoungSally

      Angie’s outfit looks like it came out of the basement of AHS- Coven.

    • Alaska Snob

      Am I the only one who thinks the cover looks just like Kelly Osborne in her younger days?

    • Veronica1022

      In the cover shot she reminds me of Aimee Mann in the “Voices Carry” video. I do think Elle is beautiful but styled too adult in some of the pics.

      • quiltrx

        Looking like Aimee in that video is always a good thing!

    • CommentsByKatie

      It seems as though the new trend in magazines is to pick the worst picture of the bunch for the cover. 2 and 3 are stunning, the cover is okay.

    • guest2visits

      The first look is too cold. The second is too hot. The 3rd is just right. Like porridge, comfy chairs and wooden beds. Oops. Different story….. really, she has such a beautiful face. And the first pics are like a little girl playing dress-up.
      Angelina will be a wonderful villainess.

    • FeminineLipstique

      Hailee Steinfeld’s English accent > Elle Fanning’s English accent

      Angelina’s cheekbones could slice paper.

    • Big Bear

      They chose some pretty clothes. Bless her, she almost pulls it off.

    • quiltrx

      WANT that necklace in the first pic!
      The third pic is by far the best.

    • amber.

      That Gaultier killed the man. She looks amazing.

    • appliquer

      She looks better in black & white than in color photos.

    • Joey Melliza

      She could play a mushroom wearing a short bath towel in second grade though

    • Mona_Visa

      Sleeping who?

    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      The third picture is really great!

    • decormaven

      Eye makeup is stunning.

    • MrsAtaxxia

      Here’s hoping this movie means that we get a really fierce Angie run in the mags, and maybe even a deviation from the sack dress red carpet! A girl can dream right? CHANNEL THE CHARACTER ANGE.

      • ellisd123

        A Maleficent-inspired Angie run would be TO DIE!

    • Lani A. George

      The score is Tchaikovsky, and Disney hired operatically trained singers to voice the title parts.

    • Sunraya

      She IS a little girl in woman’s clothing. Especially in the second picture. Seems silly to put her in these clothes.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.com/ Vivi N

      The 5th photo, though? Amazing. She can definitely work a camera.

      • Lilak

        (Had to laugh at myself: For the splittiest of split seconds, I saw La Lohan in that one — eeek, I know!)

    • Rebecca Clifford

      She is lovely-looking. She reminds me of a young Angela Lansbury.

    • fumemore

      Elle Fanning, Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Chloe Moretz. They all look the same to me.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      Anyone see the Spell Block Tango by Todrick Hall on YouTube? It has Disney villains singing the Cell Block Tango from Chicago. I’m in love.

      • crystal76

        I love that video! It’s got some good guests spots.

    • mrspotts66

      how old is she?

      she seems very young, but i think there’s a lot of potential there.
      her last pic (white dress/blue flowers) – there’s something about it that i really like.

    • siriuslover

      I’ve never been a fan of Angelina’s, but boy that trailer is good. I think this movie may be a turning point for me.

    • martha

      Who made the necklace she is wearing on the front cover?
