Elle Fanning in Valentino Couture at the Cannes Film Festival

Posted on May 16, 2019

Once again, Princess Elle has stepped off her throne to wish all of us peasants the happiest of mornings in the manner she knows best: by serving sickening fairy princess realness.




As we’ve often said with her, some times good style is simply a matter of leaning into what nature gave you. The fairy princess drag has a short shelf life, but she might as well indulge it for as long as she can make it work. When you’re name’s Elle and you look like a Disney animator drew you some time around 1950, you’d be silly not to maximize that. The fact that she’s literally a Disney princess helps tremendously, of course. We might think it odd if someone like… we don’t know, Miley Cyrus, let’s say – stepped out in a look like this. It’s extremely Elle-specific.


There’s too much volume, top and bottom. Keep the big skirt but scale back on the massive sleeves. We’re well aware we sound like a broken record on this point but the wide plunging neckline was not needed.
