Elle Fanning In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘Maleficent’ Private Reception

Elle Fanning In Georges Hobeika Couture - 'Maleficent' London PremiereA day after attending the ‘Maleficent’ Paris photo call, Elle Fanning was at a private reception on Wednesday (May 8), where costumes and props from the Disney movie were exhibited at Kensington Palace in London, England in support of the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

No doubt paying homage to the fantasy of the film, the young starlet wore a strapless Georges Hobeika Fall 2013 Couture confection with beautifully beaded embellishment and a pleated ball skirt.

The fairy tale continued with her crown of mini flowers that tied into long ribbons down her back, while the rest of the styling was kept purposefully simple with no jewels and rose-hued makeup.

Enchanted or not?

    Given the nature of the movie and her character, I really like the flowers in her hair and the dress. I think she looks lovely.

    I love that she is dressing in relation to her character. This gown is lovely but she should have stopped there. The flowers are overkill for me. Still a nice look.

    She was on the right track that the dress needed something to elevate it to quite a different level. But the hair is just okay (and the make up a real shame). I would have opted a) for the belt and b) at least gloves–I quite like how the light falls onto the model’s arms. Even the eccentric collar on the runway works for me.

    It’s growing on me, particularly after having seen Angelina’s look. They are clearly dressing in character. My biggest complaint is that the dress is too long.

    I think the look is well-executed, suits the occasion, and she carries it confidently. Glad nothing else was added – flowers enhance the look, playing up the fairy tale vibe, while suiting her youth. I wouldn’t change anything.

      My thoughts exactly!
      I really like this!

    • Alina May 9, 2014 at 05:17 #

      Totally agree with Nat.
      She looks stunning.

    • Jones19 May 9, 2014 at 10:53 #

      Completely agree. The styling is perfection. I wouldn’t change a thing.

      She looks ravishing.

    She’s young, it’s never too much on her. Love the dress. Love, love the fair-like makeup.

  7. Joy May 8, 2014 at 20:55 #

    What in the world is up with the makeup? Is she in costume? Is she on a runway? Maybe without the makeup the dress would have washed her out. Oh I think I just figured it out! Lovely look!

  8. Yeliz May 8, 2014 at 20:58 #

    I don’t think that I’ve liked a look of hers this much before. She looks absolutely gorgeous, the flower crown is a very nice addition given the occasion.

    She looks lovely and ethereal.

  11. H May 8, 2014 at 21:07 #

    Well, something tells me she will knock it out with this promo tour, she looks great here, I love the drama.

  12. Noemi May 8, 2014 at 21:38 #

    100% enchanted. She looks lovely and that dress is gorgeous.

  13. Britta May 8, 2014 at 21:49 #

    She looks exactly how I imagine her character Princess Aurora in the movie! Stunning! And very age appropriate and event appropriate!

  14. AnderBoBo May 8, 2014 at 21:56 #

    I really like this, especially how in contrast it is to Angelina’s look at this event, which makes perfect sense considering their roles in the film.

  15. Silvia May 8, 2014 at 23:55 #

    What a gorgeous dress!

  16. jimmy May 9, 2014 at 00:00 #

    She looks enchanting. I love this so much and I am not usually a fan of her style. Perfect for this event.

  17. KC May 9, 2014 at 00:19 #

    She looks like a ghost.

    • Dean May 9, 2014 at 14:25 #

      +1 I think it’s the makeup and the pose, but she still looks great!

  18. Mandy May 9, 2014 at 00:23 #

    The only thing that I would change is the crown, its a little overkill imo. I wonder if they’ll both keep dressing as their characters all through the tour, it will make for some interesting looks im sure.

  19. Christine May 9, 2014 at 00:29 #

    She looks ethereal! So gorgeous.

  20. Quinn May 9, 2014 at 01:05 #

    She looks gorgeous. She’s just a teenager so I don’t mind the flower on her hair. Love the makeup as well! definitely enchanted :)

  21. Pedro May 9, 2014 at 03:24 #

    She looks gorgeous!

  22. Marty May 9, 2014 at 06:30 #

      *and. oups!

  24. Danielle May 9, 2014 at 13:41 #

    Elle looks lovely.

  25. Kathy May 9, 2014 at 14:55 #

    I’m on the fence about this. The dress is fine, but I’m not sure how to feel about her hair & makeup. Since the dress is strapless, she could’ve left her hair down without covering anything. The makeup is a little bit harsh, especially around the eyes.

  26. marie May 9, 2014 at 16:00 #

    Lovely dress, totally her colour.
    I could go with the headpeace – but please with open hair, maybe some curls, the straight hair seems to… straight considering the film and her role and everything.
    The makeup is finally too much, the color seems out of place.

  27. Joana May 9, 2014 at 16:55 #

    So gorgeous and so Elle.

  28. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork May 9, 2014 at 18:48 #

    She’s adorable, but I can’t get behind the rose-colored eye make-up. Maybe it’s because I work in a hospital and see people who look like that when they’re ill. Maybe it reminds me a bit too much of a zombie. Whatever it is, I don’t think it’s flattering on any skin tone or eye color.

  29. Bailey November 16, 2014 at 00:05 #

    Too bad her hair and makeup are awful because this is the first dress she has ever worn that I actually don’t mind
