Elle Fanning In Valentino – Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 2nd Annual Governors Awards

Elle Fanning joined Natalie Portman and Hilary Swank on the red carpet at the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 2nd Annual Governors Awards in LA this weekend.

The teen star has been walking the red carpet since 2007, but this year she’s really come into her own wearing big name designers.

On this occasion she wore a strapless Valentino Resort 2011 dress.

The model never really sold this dress to me, but I love it on Elle.

Her dress which is covered in floral appliqués is so cute. I love the bow at the waist and the flared skirt.

Unlike many teen stars before her Elle continues to be fashionable and age appropriate at all times.

    This is age appropriate and she looks really sweet in it.

    Good choice by her stylist. Kudos. I would have been tempted to put my hair back, but down looks alright too.

    Awesome. Perfect choice, age appropriate and very pretty and classy.

    Totally cute! Like her sister Dakota, she’s on the right way of fashion. Gorgeous :)

    A very cute look for a cute girl

    I prefer her to Dakota

      Me too!

      Me, three! I like her better, though as far as celebrity sisters go, the Fannings are the best! Truly talented. I think it says a lot about the parents, too.

    She’s so beautiful and graceful. Love this dress on her.

  7. Anna November 15, 2010 at 17:12 #

    She looks amazing!

  8. Alexandra November 15, 2010 at 17:14 #

    perfect pick for her. it seems fashion sense in Fanning family is highly developed from the young age ;)

    Do we think that Elle and Dakota share a stylist? They often wear the same designers (Valentino, Marchesa, Marc Jacobs) and similar princess-y styles too. ho ever works with them both is doing a great job, I love their cute, fashion forward but not too old look :)

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they did

    Cute.

    I ador ethis dress on her, I feel that on the model, and anyone of a certain age would ahve made it look juvenile also. the only small hiccup in her outfit, IMO, is the shoes, I would prefer if she wore lighter shoes, basically ntot black, but not necessarily heels, although this is a completely minor fault.
    She also has really, really nice hands. I know that is really random, but in my POV, underrated!
    Her hair is to die for.

  12. Laura November 15, 2010 at 19:46 #

    Age appropriate and beautiful. The bust is better on her than the model.

  13. sara November 15, 2010 at 19:59 #

    with dresses like this valentino must be regretting having retired!!!!!!!!!!!!that dress does not deserve to bear his name!…it’s a cute dress, yes, but not for a brand like valentino!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Amber November 15, 2010 at 20:26 #

    another hit for Elle!

  15. Leila November 15, 2010 at 21:05 #

    She looks so beautiful!!!! You should’ve put the pic from the nutcracker premiere, she looked amazing with her Azzaro dress

  16. karen November 15, 2010 at 21:41 #

    Elle looks really cute and adorable in this dress. Perfect for her age.

  17. pam November 16, 2010 at 01:10 #

    The Fanning girls always get it right. The model looks like a girl wearing her mom’s slip and shoes.

  18. mochababe73 November 16, 2010 at 01:10 #

    She looks adorable and age appropriate. The styling is perfect. I am so glad that the Fanning girls have such wonderful parents. Strict guidance makes sure that they looks their age instead of like Taylor Momsen.

  19. gossip_bangkok November 16, 2010 at 02:48 #

    Adorable and very age appropriate! :)

  20. Sharon November 16, 2010 at 04:12 #

    Absolutely perfect from head to toe. What a beautiful young girl she is. Can’t wait to see what fashions her future holds.

  21. Giuseppi Giraffe November 16, 2010 at 21:33 #

    She has really given good face on the red carpet! She owns this dress and looks very confident. This is BDOTW worty for me.

  22. Kristy November 2, 2011 at 06:55 #

    This dress looks amazing on her! Just like the white Marchesa one! I so want to get this! But it’s out of season right?
