Elle Fanning In Oscar de la Renta – British Independent Film Awards 2012

The British Independent Film Awards took place at Old Billingsgate Market in London yesterday evening and were attended by Britain’s talented up-and-coming stars, plus a cute teen American actress called Elle Fanning.

I love Elle, because you never quite know what’s coming next: she can go from indie to edgy to preppy to princess-like with equal aplomb.

Last night, it was princess-like, wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 gown.

The light-pink silk organza embroidered gown with a fitted bodice and bell-shaped skirt does an amazing job of not washing her out nor overwhelming her petite figure.

Keeping the styling super-simple and ensuring all eyes were on her fabulous dress, she opted for no makeup, nude Oscar de la Renta pumps and a slicked-back bun.

    Don’t like the shoes nor the hair. I think some gorgeous waves would’ve worked much better with the gown.

    Stunning, stunning gown on the tanner-skinned model!! A little too washed out on Elle I think. A shoe change and some lipstick could have worked wonders however!

    I think you need dark hair for this look.

    Yea! I’m a little disappointed in the shoe color, but the gown is sensational. This is a princess look that I can appreciate.

    She looks very stiff to me. I don’t like the hair, it makes her head look disproportionately small because she’s (relatively) sturdily built. And the dress does wash her out too. But she is still a child and has more than enough room for misses. She’s worn some amazing things and there’s still lots of time down the road. I know she’ll blossom into an impeccable lady.

    Wow, this a wonderful dress and she wears it well.

    STUNNING! Love everything about this look.

  8. Yeliz December 10, 2012 at 16:11 #

    Absolutely love this gown and it doesn’t wash her out. I also love that her hair was up, but I don’t like her shoes and wished that she applied at least a lipstick.

    This dress is gorgeous and the sort of style I would DREAM of wearing–glad that she didn’t overdo the makeup. This is BDOTW-worthy. I much prefer Princess Elle to Quirky Elle.

    The dress should have been a little darker. This color is washing her out. A little lipstick might have helped with that, but as is… too pale.

  11. serapart December 10, 2012 at 15:47 #

    she is way too pale for this dress, especially with the hair, so its a no from me 🙁

  12. Christine December 10, 2012 at 15:14 #

    Wish she had some color to her lips but this is gorgeous.

  13. Odette December 10, 2012 at 15:06 #

    Love that she put her hair up and the dress but the shoes don’t work. Silver pointy pumps would’ve complemented the dress better.

    • Rebecca Z December 10, 2012 at 16:19 #

      I agree–the dress works for me but the shoes are too heavy and dull for this look.

  14. kane December 10, 2012 at 14:16 #

    I like the dress, but I feel she’s too young for it.

  15. Anne December 10, 2012 at 13:07 #

    Love this dress on her, but can someone PLEASE get both Fanning girls a makeup artist, and STAT? They always look washed out, shiny and lifeless. And hundreds of flashbulbs are not forgiving.

    • Emmeline December 10, 2012 at 19:07 #

      I wholeheartedly agree.

  16. Noemi (WBiS) December 10, 2012 at 12:55 #

    The dress is a dream, I’m not crazy about the shoes… but she looks lovely.

    • Mia December 10, 2012 at 16:15 #

      I agree.

  17. katie December 10, 2012 at 12:49 #

    I think the colour totally drains her and does not suit her colouring at all

  18. lu December 10, 2012 at 12:16 #

    Love it! very fresh and young. Maybe I just love the princess look!

  19. Mandy December 10, 2012 at 11:44 #

    I just wish it was a shade or two darker. Im not liking the paleness of the look, so monotone.

    • dee December 10, 2012 at 13:38 #

      I agree.

  20. Charlotte December 10, 2012 at 11:30 #

    I don’t like the hair and the make up !

  21. robbie December 10, 2012 at 11:24 #

    yet another snoozefest from one half of the fanning sisters.

  22. Ramsay December 10, 2012 at 11:23 #

    Quite simply amazing – It’s her second clever choice from Oscar De La Renta whose clothes can, contrary to popular belief, look quite young

  23. Henrique December 10, 2012 at 11:20 #

    Love it. Elle can do no wrong in my eyes.

    • noo December 10, 2012 at 11:40 #


  24. lola December 10, 2012 at 11:18 #

    She looks totally washed out.This look is way too constructed for her…

    • Nat39 December 10, 2012 at 19:27 #

      She does look totally washed out to me too, her shoes aren’t working for me either.

      • Francois Bresmal December 10, 2012 at 21:47 #

        +2 she’s drowning in the pale hues, I want to throw some red painting. Is it me or does she have larger shoulders than the model?

  25. Lyvm December 10, 2012 at 11:03 #

    Love the choice. Makeup is as usual minimal and fresh on Elle which is great for her age and the skirt keeps this look from being too southern belle.
