Elle Fanning opted for a quirkier look at the 2011 Met Gala in New York City last night.

She trumped her big sister by wearing a Valentino Fall 2010 ensemble.

I think she pulls of this white long sleeve top with black bolero and skirt with great aplomb.

How is one so young so confident and poised?

She was one of my favourites on the night.

I love the runway inspired top knot and the Valentino bow front heels.
