Best Dressed Teen of the Year – Elle Fanning

Kiernan Shipka long dominated the Best Dressed Teen category, winning the honour for three years in a row.

But, 19-year-old Elle Fanning has swooped in to take up the torch now, just in the nick of time in her last year as a teenager.

And, the status is quite well-deserved.

Elle not only has a directional, forward-thinking sense of style, she also possesses a sweet-chic aesthetic that adds girly romance and ethereality to moderate her edgier, quirky looks.

She can effortlessly debut a Temperley London sky-blue, prairie-girl frock just as easily as a Naeem Khan gunmetal gown, and a floral, fairy-tale confection by Christian Dior Couture—a personal favourite of mine.

Talk about the right kind of balance for a teen trendsetter.

    She killed it this year. Her Cannes run was major. However Yara Shahidi is my crush

    Yup, Elle makes more sense as “Most Consistent”.

    I loved maximum of her looks but Yara was amazing this year. Elle imo deserves the Most Consistent Award.

      Agree. Yara was robbed. This award is the one I disagree with the most. Yara showed far more range and in my opinion more consistency. If I see one more pale princess gown on Ellen Fanning, it will be too soon.

    Yara got my vote because IMO Yara dresses more like a teenager. She does casual looks so incredibly well, and always looking hip and carefree. I do like Elle but her style is so much more mature and polished she doesn’t feel like a teen to me.

    I can see. Some choices she made this year was stunning. But Yara is my girl.

  6. Mimi December 23, 2017 at 10:30 pm #

    Yessss! Her Gucci dress from Cannes was one of my BDOTW

    • Mimi December 23, 2017 at 10:30 pm #

      Whoops, I mean BDOTY

    Elle had a stunning year–CANNES!!!–but I did vote for Yara in this category. Both strong contenders.

    Totally deserved! Very talented girl as well

  9. JHH December 23, 2017 at 3:57 pm #

    I voted for Yara but I can totally get what Elle won.

  10. Katie December 23, 2017 at 3:37 pm #

    Well deserved. She’s consistently well dressed. Always feminine and bold and never try hard or too mature.

  11. Caroline December 23, 2017 at 3:33 pm #

    I voted for Yara as my vote for Elle went as Most consistent of 2017, however she delivered at Cannes three looks that I included in my best dressed list and she did not get it wrong, not even once. Love her.

  12. Schoolbea December 23, 2017 at 3:00 pm #

    I voted for Yara, but this was a close second, and revisiting her Cannes looks I am reminded of the fantastic fashion moments she have us.

      It seems that people who make “the commenters” in this site think completely different from people who make ” the non-commenters”. It would be nice if they occasionally drop a line as a signal of acknowledgement of the nice work of the editor and contributors.

      • Schoolbea December 23, 2017 at 3:58 pm #

        Well, I was a follower for years before I ever posted a comment, so I think it would be nice, yes, but I can also see it from their point of view. Being a non-native English speaker was a factor, as well as lack of time and countless other reasons. I myself find I can’t comment for days on end lately.

        I’m sure they appreciate their work.

        • Leandra December 23, 2017 at 5:13 pm #

          I never commented on the old version, before the closure. I agree about the time factor and I would add to that the fear of the perpetually offended.

  13. Leandra December 23, 2017 at 1:07 pm #

    I loved Elle’s outings but Yara was the true revelation for me as well.

    Yara for me.

  16. Alina December 23, 2017 at 11:19 am #

    Love Elle, but this was Yara’s year for me.

  17. Iva December 23, 2017 at 11:18 am #

    Yara for me.

  18. Susie December 23, 2017 at 11:15 am #

    Well-deserved! Elle had one of the best runs at Cannes of any actresses in recent years. Yara Shahidi was a very, very close second for me, but ultimately went with Elle because that Dior gown was my BDOTY.

    She’s absolutely stunning and I love all her outfits, still I’m upset Millie Bobby Brown didn’t get the title

    • Catherine Kallon December 23, 2017 at 11:26 am #

      She got best newcomer

      • miszel December 23, 2017 at 11:34 am #

        Oh that’s great!
