Elle Fanning In Versace – Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Elle Fanning In Versace - Marie Claire Celebrates May Cover Stars

Elle Fanning joined Kate Mara and Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet for Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces Party to celebrate her cover, held at Soho House on Tuesday (April 8) in West Hollywood, California.

Looking all grown up, the young actress wore a Versace Fall 2014 elegant deep-red cocktail dress with bronze straps and an asymmetrical hemline.

Grown up but not too sexy, the look was styled with no makeup, bronze-metallic Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, plus a complementary Brian Atwood bronze ‘Ottavia’ clutch and a single cuff.

Does anyone think this is a touch too sexy for Elle?

        Agreed, the top half is okay but everything else is making me cringe.

    I like the dress.

    I find Lupita’s dress too twee and Elle’s dress a bit too mature. Perhaps if Lupita and Elle’s could switch dress?

    looks like nightie

    I think she looks very good. The dress isn’t in any degree near a piece of art but the colour is very nice to her skin tone and the accessories are perfect. She is making it work.

      I agree. She looks like a rose garden–her colouring in this dress is so pretty

    She looks gorgeous!

  7. E April 9, 2014 at 13:12 #

    Simple and elegant. I think she pulls it off well.

    I’m torn by this look. On one hand it’s a great one. The accessories are great and the colour is gorgeous. But on the other hand it reminds me of a nightgown and it is too mature for her.

      I agree.

  9. Yeliz April 9, 2014 at 14:07 #

    Actually I like the dress and the accessories are great, but I don’t think that this is an age appropriate look.

    • Rebecca Z April 9, 2014 at 15:44 #

      I’m with you. This would be fine for her in 10 years.

    • Alina April 9, 2014 at 15:47 #

      I agree.

      • Camille April 9, 2014 at 23:54 #

        I also agree

    Seems like some people here has forgotten that she’s only 16. It looks like a dress a 40 year old should wear. She probably could’ve styled it younger, but she didn’t. Can’t she go back to her fun days?

    It is a lovely slip dress, if perhaps a tad mature for Elle. Nevertheless, she looks great in red.

    I do find this dress a bit too ‘sexy’ for her yet at the same time it’s SO much better than the garb she usually wears that I can’t 100% dislike it.

  13. DC April 9, 2014 at 16:24 #

    My first thought was she looks super pretty – I love a good 90s slip dress
    But it does feel a bit sexy for her age

    I’m not interested in seeing a 16 y-o in a red negligee. People have criticized the likes of Chloé Moretz for far less -_-

    My main issue remains her hair though. She needs to stop dyeing it this shade of blonde, her roots are jarring.

    • Godiva April 9, 2014 at 20:55 #

      The hair color needs to go. It looks dated, the same one-tone color. She is far too young to for this hair choice. WOuld love to see more of a golden blond with some layers.

    At first I was going to say that the neckline is a tad too much but that she still gets a pass, but then I noticed on IMDB that today’s Elle’s 16th birthday. Wow. Way, WAY too sexy for a fresh 16 year old.

    The dress looks like a nightgown to begin with. An expensive one and of nice deep color and I can imagine someone older could make it work by styling with a sharp oversized blazer or a coat. But for a 16-year old with a baby face like Elle’s this just doesn’t work

  17. justine April 10, 2014 at 08:46 #

    I think I might like this dress on someone else. Elle just looks like a little girl playing dress up. On top of that, her styling is not so good.
