Awards Circuit Style File: “Eighth Grade” Star Elsie Fisher Plants Her Flag

Posted on January 09, 2019

A salute, darlings. To our newest style hero.

Miss Elsie rightly wowed the critics in her debut film Eighth Grade, and like a good 15-year-old fashionista would, she’s taking this moment to have herself a good ol’ time on every red carpet made available to her. We cannot attagirl this power move enough.

And while we could do the Gay Uncle bit and be all about how she and her stylist are perfectly threading the needle on being fashion-forward but teenager-appropriate at the same time (mainly by keeping her fashion very much in the Fun Zone, which is something Millie Bobby Brown’s team did not always manage for her), we’re more interested in lauding her for always making such bold and off-the-beaten-track choices.

The pressure for any 15-year-old girl to conform is nearly crushing at times, but it’s nearly unfathomable for someone that age in the entertainment industry. We LOVE that these looks are fun, comfortable, loaded with personality (and a bit of humor), unexpected, and not remotely interested in the male gaze.

The effect is strong, declarative, and confident. A style statement that says she knows herself and knows how she wants people to see her. Huzzah, girl. Brava. Keep going for the things you want to wear. Keep shooting for boldness. Keep trying things out. Just to see.
