Elle Fanning In Rodarte – “Somewhere” New York Screening

It feels so strange to have a “Girl Crush” on a teen actress, but I’m loving Elle Fanning’s style at the moment.

She’s gone from cutesy princesses’ dresses, to adorable Marc Jacob dresses, to Valentino Couture, to edgy Rodarte in a very short space of time.

With each look she’s not trying to be anyone she’s not, and she’s not trying to look older than her 12 years.

I love her how angelic Elle manages to look in her Rodarte tan suede and gold leather embossed dress.

I wouldn’t advise stars to steer too far away from the Rodarte runway styling, so I’m not surprised to see Elle stick to the same white see-through socks, and Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte metallic gold embossed wedge heels which we saw on the runway.

      I’m going pick it up. Thanks for the info

    i can’t say i like the shoes on elle — the ‘edgy’ look feels far too contrived on her, but she is totally adorable in that dress

  4. Suz December 13, 2010 at 15:24 #

    I think Elle Fanning (or whoever is dressing her) already has a cool sense of style. I can’t believe she’s only 12!

  5. jules December 13, 2010 at 15:25 #

    honestly i think a child in couture looks really strange and unnatural…

  6. amber December 13, 2010 at 15:32 #

    loving her at the moment too. she’s got great style for such a young girl.

    I don’t like this as much as her Valentino look (which was amaaazing), but I’m liking all her looks a million times more than I’ve ever liked Dakota’s looks. Maybe it’s the fact that she mixes it up with her hair?

    I agree with your advice to not steer too far from the runway styling when it comes to Rodarte, and I think Ellie looks fab here.

  9. noo December 13, 2010 at 15:55 #

    please please please add her to you bdotw poll 😀 she is so cute i love her sooooooooooo much 😀

  10. Duck December 13, 2010 at 15:59 #

    Wow I think she looks wonderful. It’s a very age-appropriate dress, very girly and cute.

  11. Victor December 13, 2010 at 16:10 #

    She is so adorable! I love those heels!

  12. Ant December 13, 2010 at 16:12 #

    Great dress choice but there’s something ever so slightly creepy about a pre-teen in huge heels like those. Too literal for my tastes.

    • Ethne Blist December 13, 2010 at 19:19 #

      I don’t like it when they take looks straight off the runway. It’s too stylist-like.

      • Ant December 13, 2010 at 20:01 #

        If anything, I’d say it’s less stylist-like. A great stylist will mix and match looks, this is just lazy – they basically logged onto to style.com, clicked around and then went ‘that one’.

        And those shoes are still creeping me out, she may look older but THIS GIRL IS 12! Somewhere out there in the big old internets, there are guys who love this photo for totally different reasons.

        I’ll get off my high horse now, promise.

    • KateS December 14, 2010 at 00:31 #

      I agree, and there’s something particularly creepy about a pre-teen all dolled up but also wearing little girls’ white socks. The dress works surprisingly well, but I think the look would have benefited overall from a hand from a good stylist with an eye for age-appropriateness.

  13. justme December 13, 2010 at 16:12 #

    I love it. BDOTW contender, please.

  14. Kelly December 13, 2010 at 16:16 #

    I think I was shopping at the Limited Too when I was 12 LOL! She really is one of the most stylish teenagers out there.

  15. Hisadora December 13, 2010 at 16:17 #

    This girl is really becoming a favorite!! I love everything about this look, and the shoes are to die for, they’re amazing :)

  16. Moxie December 13, 2010 at 17:17 #

    She looks fab. I hope she makes your BDOTW poll.

  17. T. December 13, 2010 at 17:19 #

    I totally agree with FC, she is still surprising me! Style icon in the shell or in fact she is already.

  18. Em December 13, 2010 at 17:26 #

    i love her ballerina stances when she poses for the red carpet. great posture, elle!

  19. Hannah December 13, 2010 at 19:20 #

    Please PLEASE consider ehr for best dressed teen of the year FC. I LOVE HER. She dresses well, not try hard, not growing up too fast and so talented (my memory of babel). I love this look, she is very brave, and looks beautiful!

    • Moxie December 13, 2010 at 20:25 #

      I second the recommendation. I’m looking forward to FC’s best (and worst) of the year posts.

    • Alina December 14, 2010 at 18:51 #

      I agree. She looks beautiful and stylish.

  20. Marvel December 13, 2010 at 19:39 #

    A great look for her but I must ask, are socks built in the shoes or is it detachable

  21. V December 13, 2010 at 21:41 #

    a 12 year old’s dress should never be that short and her heels never that high.

  22. Leo December 13, 2010 at 23:24 #

    I don’t like the runway styling for her, it makes her look older in a bad way with those shoes. It could work with nude or gold pumps.

  23. mochababe73 December 13, 2010 at 23:58 #

    I can’t believe that she’s wearing Rodarte and is giving it a cute, girly feel. I love it, and she has a great stylist.

  24. Martin December 14, 2010 at 00:11 #

    First Keira and now Elle, the red carpet is rocking with Rodarte Spring/Summer 2011. She wears this better than the model in my opinion – with a sense of youthful exuberance and chic casualness. Love. It.

  25. gossip_bangkok December 14, 2010 at 12:25 #

    Very cute!

  26. SarahV December 14, 2010 at 16:18 #

    Wow… she’s 12?? I thought she was 14 or something!
    I didn’t look like that at 12 (sadly…)

  27. rebecca December 21, 2010 at 05:19 #

    FC, how can you not put her as best dressed teen of the year/ one to watch in 2011???? SHE HAS SO MUCH POTENTIALL!!!! we are begging you hahah:)
