Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Elle Fanning In Rochas - 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuoso Award Ceremony

Elle Fanning joined Eddie Redmayne at the 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuoso Award Ceremony held at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California yesterday.

The teen star wore a Rochas Spring 2013 white brocade belted dress which featured slanted pockets.

Ripping the runway look, Elle also donned the white leather boxing boots but opted out of wearing the sunnies and silk headband.

Many of you went on record to say that Elle has the most undesirable footwear collection to hit the red carpet, so I’m sure you will agree that she’s worn much worse than these leather lace-up boots.

I wanna say I dislike them on principle, but I think they keep the look interesting.

White pumps or those Prada platforms she loves so much would’ve been too predictable.

Elle Fanning In Chanel - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsElle Fanning is somewhat of a fashion prodigy, and she showed us why at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted last night at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

This up-and-coming starlet and Best Dressed Teen of 2012 selected head-to-toe Chanel Spring 2013 for her big night, where she was nominated for Best Young Actress in ‘Ginger & Rosa.’

She didn’t win the evening’s trophy, but she continued her style winning streak with the strapless column gown that featured quirky floral appliqués that only she could pull off. Likewise, her crazy and clunky silver platform clogs would normally be a no-go for anyone else, but they worked for her.

Good thing she left the overly dramatic collar choker necklace on the runway, though.

She even had us swooning over her playful pink eyeliner. Of course, her beaming, youthful grin is this girl’s best accoutrement.

Elle always leaves us in awe; we can’t wait to see what she puts on next.

Elle Fanning In Opening Ceremony & Dakota Fanning In Nina Ricci

Elle and Dakota Fanning attended a promotional event for the 2013 J.Estina SS presentation at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul, South Korea earlier today.

It’s rare for us to see the sisters on the red carpet together, so I had no idea that Elle towered over her older sister Dakota, who has reverted back to her natural blonde hue.

Dressed in cute mini dresses, Elle wore a pretty floral Opening Ceremony Resort 2013 frock with a stand-out blue python embellished clutch and a nude pair of Miu Miu platform bow-front peep-toes.

Elle’s choice of footwear could which could explain why she’s that much taller than Dakota as she wore metallic silver Miu Miu loafers with her ethereal white lace Nina Ricci Resort 2011 sleeveless dress.

Like Elle, Dakota carried a contrasting clutch which stood out against her simple look.

Both look cute, fresh and youthful, but I’m captivated by that gorgeous floral print on Elle’s dress and her soft subtle wavy tresses.

Elle Fanning, your Best Dressed Teen for 2012, made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last Friday.

The young actress told the TV host that she’s taking Biology, French and Geometry classes, plus she was on the show to promote her latest flick, ‘Ginger and Rosa’, sharing that she had her first on-screen kiss shooting this movie – at which point she burst into fits of uncontrollable laughter.

Opting for an angelic look, she wore a Chanel Resort 2013 dress with puffy sleeves which she accessorized with lavender Chanel sandals and a pear-accented choker.

A half-up, half-down hairstyle completed her look.

Love, or does the civil-war-era vibe of this look put you off?

Elle Fanning has virtually stolen the spotlight from her older sister, Dakota—and from a host of other burgeoning starlets.

Not only did this precocious 14-year-old actress land a role in the upcoming Sleeping Beauty movie, Maleficent, with Angelina Jolie, she also was just nominated for a 2013 Critics’ Choice Award for her part in Ginger & Rosa.

She is no shrinking violet on the style scene either. So it’s no surprise Elle was elected the Best Dressed Teen of 2012, continuing her winning streak from last year.

A radiant presence with her alabaster skin, her deep gaze and those angelic blonde locks, Elle makes a strong impression whether she’s a girly goddess on the red carpet, a fairy tale fashionista at a film premiere, the girl-next-door for Teen Vogue or an artsy rocker chick covering the latest issue of Bullett magazine.

She achieves such grace by mixing cute with couture and princess with punk, all with a young and fun flair. And she’s not afraid to take risks. Remember, Elle was the one who colored outside the lines and dared to wear a sunny piece from Rodarte’s Van Gogh-inspired Spring 2012 collection at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards.

In fact, this PYT often leans towards high-concept looks plucked straight from the runway, favoring bold names like Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Prada and Rochas.

One of her most memorable ensembles of the year was actually an ode to androgyny: the print-happy Miu Miu Fall 2012 trouser suit she wore for the Ginger & Rosa premiere at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.

It’s not hard to see why Elle has captivated the attention of film directors and fashion designers, carving out a glowing role in the movie biz and in the style world with more panache than starlets two or three times her age.
