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.

Elle Fanning In Marchesa – ‘Lowdown’ LA Premiere

Elle Fanning In Marchesa - 'Lowdown' LA Premiere

Elle Fanning attended the premiere of ‘Lowdown’ held at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday (October 23) in Hollywood, California.

The young brunette star wore one of the heroine pieces from Marchesa’s Spring 2015 collection with Forevermark Diamonds.

The nude tulle off-the-shoulder mermaid gown enriched with trickling floral embroidery, a draped bodice and blouson sleeves was the one I was dying to see on the red carpet.

Did it live up to my expectations?

Yes, I have to say.

This romantic modern-gypsy offering is very much Elle’s red carpet M.O.: pretty, delicate and oozing with plenty of charm and grace.

The expectation would’ve been that this gown would wash her out, but I believe the all-over embroidery and rosy glow prevent that.

Elle Fanning In Jenny Packham & Creatures of the Wind – ‘Young Ones’ New York Promo Tour

Elle Fanning - 'Young Ones' New York Promo Tour

It was a very busy day for young Elle Fanning who sported three looks in one day while promoting her latest movie, ‘Young Ones’.

‘Letterman’ arrival: Elle arrived for her guest appearance on ‘Letterman’ wearing an uncompromisingly feminine knee-length nude Jenny Packham Resort 2015 dress with delicate gold embellishments beautifully accented with a black bow and waistband.

‘Letterman': For Elle’s second look, the mood changed from sweet to more mature. I love how her dress has been flawlessly crafted, with the gathering at the front creating soft volume through the skirt punctuated by beautiful cascading floral embroidery. Some might deem this age-inappropriate, but I think she rocks the look with elegance and maturity – plus, those fuchsia satin pumps are making me go weak at the knees.

‘Young Ones’ New York Premiere: Elle’s final look of the day consisted of yet another bold-hued shoe, but methinks that’s not the first place many will look. I think this Creatures of the Wind Spring 2014 featuring a colourful bralet is perfectly balanced with a high-waisted black skirt. Somehow, once again, I don’t think the majority will agree.

Here we have one predictable look and two that are slightly out of the box for Elle. It has been said that you like stars like SJP and Cate Blanchett for taking risks with fashion, so are you going to be embracing these two new looks from Elle?

Elle Fanning In Rochas – ‘Low Down’ Mill Valley Film Festival Screening

Elle Fanning In Rochas - 'Low Down' Mill Valley Film Festival Screening

Elle Fanning attended the 37th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival screening of ‘Low Down’ held at the Rafael Film Center on Saturday (October 4) in San Rafael, California.

The actress wore a Rochas strapless taffeta gown which I simply adore.

Whilst nudes and beiges in such a large volume can drown out some skin tones, I feel like Elle’s milky complexion set against the nude hue and her new auburn hair colour work perfectly on this occasion.

What also helps this look work is that her gown is so simple with its strapless cut and cinched in waist.

Accessorized with some 70s inspired Neil Lane and Cathy Waterman wooden bangles and Aquazzura shoes opting for smokey eyes to round out her look.

Elle Fanning In Oscar de la Renta – ‘The Boxtrolls’ LA Premiere

Elle Fanning In Oscar de la Renta - 'The Boxtrolls' LA Premiere

Elle Fanning attended the premiere for ‘The Boxtrolls’ held at Universal CityWalk on Sunday (September 21) in Universal City, California.

The actress gave us new hair and a new look, sporting a darker brunette hue in place of her golden blonde and a more tailored look from Oscar de la Renta in place of her favoured princess dresses.

For me this is a case of too much change. While I love the new hair colour, which made me not even recognise the actress at first, I’m less enthused with the outfit.

I am not a fan of the style, the trousers are too long plus all round its feels too sombre for an animated feature.

Love the new direction, or are you nitpicking the look like I am?

Elle Fanning In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet

Elle Fanning In Vivienne Westwood Gold Label - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet

Elle Fanning attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (August 14) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label dress featuring the designer’s iconic squiggle-print reworked.

This signature corseted frock with a darted hem – which helps to create that inimitable silhouette we are all very familiar with – gives the young star a more grown-up look, amped up with a red lip colour.

The last time Elle wore a Westwood dress there was much debate about the suitability of the brand for the young star. Has your opinion changed or stayed the same?

Me? I love this look from her head right down to her sparkling Louboutins.
