Elle Fanning in Oscar de la Renta

Posted on December 11, 2012

Little Miss Elle has gone into full-on princess mode; a development to which we can only add applause and Bravas. Because come on, who else currently on the celebrity landscape is more suited for the princess look than her?


Elle Fanning attends the Moët British Independent Film Awards 2012 in Oscar de la Renta gown.

It’s a gorgeous gown. She continues her preference for tones that wash her out, but we don’t actually mind in this case. Nor do we mind her preference for a bare (or seemingly bare) face, since she is, after all, quite young. You won’t hear us advising a barely post-tween to slap on the warpaint. You will, though, hear us advise Elle – beg her, really – to consider some form of powder to tone down her overwhelming shininess in pictures. We also think she should go for a more youthful hairstyle. That one’s more suited for, say, Naomi Watts or someone up around that age. It’s sophisticated, but Elle doesn’t need to worry about looking sophisticated. She should stick with “fresh” and “youthful.” so a curly little blowout would have suited us just fine here. In that vein, we also don’t mind the lack of jewelry here. The gown is enough and she’s young enough to not need diamonds to finish off the look.

Let us not discuss the shoes.
