It was two school nights out in a row for young Elle Fanning, who joined Blake Lively, Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung on the red carpet last night for the Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in New York City yesterday evening.

She wore a black velvet dress with a grey collar from the Chanel Fall 2012 Couture collection.

I’m sure you are as surprised as I am that this is considered Couture.

The button-down look is too costumey for me and that isn’t because of the inclusion of the hat.

In fact the hat is the best part of this look.

A side-swept braid, rosy cheeks and a pink lip colour provided the finishing touches.
