Elle Fanning in Christopher Kane at the Comic-Con 2014: “The Boxtrolls” Panel

Posted on July 28, 2014

We are ever so thrilled that the formerly ghost-like Elle has learned to embrace color. Now we need to work on teaching her which colors she’s supposed to be embracing.

We’re not entirely in love with the salmon-y orange-pink of the dress against her skin, but we do love the multicolored flowers at the neckline, as well as the colorful pops of jewelry and the super-fun nails. And sure, the eye color’s crazy, but she’s young and it’s Comic-Con. We can’t hate on it.

It’s really the footwear that has us cringing. For one, the pointy-toed pump is too serious and mature-looking for her and for this dress. For another, there’s the not-quite-matchy color, which is giving us both splitting tension headaches. A less pointy pump picking up one of the other colors of the dress would’ve made us much happier. And we just know Elle lives for making the two of us happy.

But it’s a cute look all around, despite our nitpicking.
