This all seems to be in order. It checks off all her “fantasy/princess” style boxes and makes her recognizable at a glance. For someone so young, she does a remarkable job of hewing very closely to a fairly limited style archetype, to the point that it almost serves as a costume or logo. Elle Fanning: modern romantic fantasy princess. As a branding exercise, it’s very well executed.

From a style perspective, this isn’t lighting our pants on fire or anything. The only thing that distinguishes it from dozens of other semi-sheer beaded gowns is the heavy, armor-like quality of the work here, giving it an almost medieval feel to it. We wish the hair and makeup worked better with the dress, but again, this is part of a very tightly controlled look that tends to set her slightly apart from her cohorts. She wouldn’t be putting the “modern” in “modern romantic fantasy princess” if she went around with literal Cinderella hair and makeup.
