Elle Fanning attends the amfAR’s 2016 Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

 

We’re about to ask you what you think of this look, but first, you should take a moment to prepare yourself. Maybe you could do some deep breathing exercises or Tai Chi or something. However you get there, find your center, darlings. Because you’re going to need it.

Yeah.

It’s a lot.

Let’s start with the bottom and work our way up, shall we? Because that skirt is a total stunner. It almost – almost – makes the look. Unfortunately, it’s starts getting worse and worse as you work your way up. The bodice – and we use the term very loosely here – is almost the exact same color of her skin, except it’s wrinkly and hangs off her. Not a good look. In fact, it’s a vaguely nauseating one. She looks like she’s shedding her boob skin. The body chain doesn’t do anything for us either way. It’s not awful, but it’s not, to our eyes, the best way to balance out the visual aspects of the skirt. And then there’s the makeup situation. Sorry, pale gals, but you should probably go light on the shimmer. It doesn’t so much make you look disco-fabulous as it makes you look clammy and feverish. Again: so not a good look. And the face paint is making her look a little deranged. In fact, the more we look at this whole thing, the more annoyed we get. That dress might have worked with some very good styling and makeup choices, but someone took a pretty little blonde teenage ingenue and made her look like The Joker.
