Elle Fanning’s Summer Style

Elle Fanning's Summer Style
With the range of autumnal style that has oddly pervaded the recent spring and summer months, it always comes as a breath of fresh air when breezy, warm-weather dressing is duly embraced.

No better example than Elle Fanning who has lately been a breath of fresh air with her off-duty summer style that has been nothing short of a revelation with its simultaneous nod to both sweet youthfulness and uncompromising sophistication.

Look 1: While out shopping in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (July 12), the starlet took a lovely turn in a BCBG Max Azria striped tunic top and wrapped skirt. I love the relaxed structure of the look in combination with the pretty pastel hues to which she added the fun zing of metallic blue pumps.

Look 2: Adorably chic, she was at a nail salon in Studio City, California on Wednesday (July 8) in an Elle Sasson denim frock, which she accessorized with a casual pair of Soludos x Jason Polan ‘Burger and Fries’ espadrille flats and the polished pop of a bold orange Gucci shoulder bag.

Look 3: Although she was spotted leaving a store in West Hollywood, California on Monday (July 6), she could have just as easily been on vacation in the French Riviera in a lace NBD ‘For Your Love’ skirt effortlessly paired with a carefree, tie-front white blouse. The Miu Miu floral brocade wedges added an appropriate amount of girly quirk here, with a Louis Vuitton ‘Speedy’ bag completing the charming look on a classic note.

Elle Fanning In Prada – The Opening Night Gala Of ‘Tig’

Elle Fanning In Prada - The Opening Night Gala Of 'Tig'

Elle Fanning attended the opening night gala of ‘Tig’ during the 2015 Outfest LGBT Film Festival at Orpheum Theatre on Thursday (July 9) in Los Angeles, California.

I was delighted to see her wearing a look from the Prada Fall 2015 collection as I think many of the dresses, especially this dainty aqua blue frock with bow accents, was made for her.

Her look was styled with silver Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps that complemented the crystal bows on her frock plus a hint of pink lip colour.

With starlets such as Hailee Steinfeld in a huge rush to break away from her sweet girl image, I’m glad Elle continues to know what works best for her.

Charlotte Olympia Dinner

Charlotte Olympia Dinner

Charlotte Olympia Dellal and Liz Goldwyn co-hosted an intimate dinner at The Sunset Tower Hotel on Tuesday (May 12) in West Hollywood, California, where the accessories were definitely the life of the party.

Charlotte Olympia: The designer and host stood out for all the right reasons in a bright and summery Dolce & Gabbana floral-print frock worn with a pink sweater, Charlotte Olympia ‘Pomeline’ pom-pom sandals, and a Charlotte Olympia ‘Shocking Vanina’ red clutch. The feminine and flirty retro flair of her look was made complete with pin curls and red lip.

Elle Fanning: In light of Charlotte’s radiant ensemble, I was rather indifferent to Elle’s navy Ralph Lauren collared dress. While the Charlotte Olympia ‘Head To Toe’ gold sandals and Charlotte Olympia ‘Anette’ clutch, not to mention the red mani-pedi, attempted to bring more youthful zing to the look, the starlet could have easily had more fun.

Dita von Teese: Dita was the epitome of Dita here in a signature sexy hourglass silhouette, this one a more casual rendition with a white plunge blouse and high-waist black pants. I love that she injected some kitschy spirit into the sophisticated sizzle of the look with Charlotte Olympia ‘Desert Night Meredith’ wedges and Charlotte Olympia ‘Cactus’ clutch. Naturally, the red lip made an appearance, too.

Elle Fanning In Valentino – 8th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Elle Fanning In Valentino - 8th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Elle Fanning attended the 8th annual Women In Film pre-Oscar cocktail party held at HYDE Sunset: Kitchen + Cocktails on Friday (February 20) in West Hollywood, California.

Confidently displaying an air of whimsical spirit, I not only love her Valentino Spring 2015 dress for its summery quintuple-toned colour palette and also for the fairytale finish courtesy of the lighter-than-air ruffles.

Delicate jewels and Bionda Castana lemon pumps rounded out this gorgeous look.

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning In Rodarte - Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning attended the Rodarte x Superga dinner held at the Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 23) in Los Angeles, California.

When it comes to the young starlet’s style, she often serves up looks ranging from princess gowns of the Elie Saab variety to girlie fun pieces with an edge by Carven.

On this occasion she wore directional basics from Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection.

The look, which consisted of a grey long-sleeve turtleneck and mauve trousers with a paperbag waist, is perhaps one of my favourite looks from Elle for its laidback ease and simplicity.

Which Was Your Favourite Elle Fanning ‘Maleficent’ Promo Tour Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Elle Fanning ‘Maleficent’ Promo Tour Look

While I find myself constantly exasperated by Dakota Fanning’s red carpet style, the same doesn’t apply to her younger sister Elle.

The young actress had an incredible run promoting ‘Maleficent’ this summer wearing an array of looks, starting with Valentino in Paris.

Due to the nature of the movie, we expected a few princess gowns and she didn’t let us down on that front, serving up two epic embellished designs from Georges Hobeika Couture and the red carpet king Elie Saab in London and Hollywood respectively, with the Japan premiere seeing her wearing an Edwardian-style Alexander McQueen gown which didn’t go down too well, but showed that she’s not averse to trying something new.

Of the photocall looks, her Ellery two-piece was perhaps my favourite for its flamenco flair, with the Lanvin being my least favourite for being a bit bland and lifeless.
