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.

    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.

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

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

        +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?

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

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

    yet another snoozefest from one half of the fanning sisters.

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

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

  7. 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.

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

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

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

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

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

  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. Christine December 10, 2012 at 15:14 #

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

  15. 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 :(

  16. Moxie December 10, 2012 at 15:53 #

    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.

  17. EmmaWoodhouse December 10, 2012 at 16:11 #

    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.

  18. 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.

  19. Jones19 December 10, 2012 at 18:22 #

    STUNNING! Love everything about this look.

  20. TeaAtTwo December 10, 2012 at 19:37 #

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

  21. Kathy December 10, 2012 at 21:14 #

    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.

  22. Dhppy December 10, 2012 at 22:30 #

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

  23. Zissou December 10, 2012 at 22:38 #

    I think you need dark hair for this look.

  24. CC December 11, 2012 at 05:51 #

    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!

  25. gabis December 11, 2012 at 12:58 #

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