“If people say something is sort of weird, I’m like, Oh, that’s a great compliment!”- Elle Fanning
I adore Elle. I imagine her youth and willingness to try anything style wise, make her a stylists dream subject. Her natural star power easy to capture through any lens you point at her. She looks good in all clothes and, unlike other stars her age, isn't trying to look or act older than she really is (maybe with the exception of that red lacy dress they chose for the cover). "'I’d much rather look like a two-year-old than a 21-year-old," she told TV.
She is the 13 year old (8th grade!) sister of Dakota Fanning, but her resume would be impressive for a 33 year old. She has appeared in multiple feature length films and covered magazines such a W, Jalouse, and Love, and is the current face of Marc by Marc Jacobs.
When asked about Elle's role in the family, Dakota says "'Elle knows every single model, every single collection, every single piece from every single collection. [she is clearly more talented then me and much much prettier]" She reminds me of myself when I was 13 (or now, actually...)
My absolute favorite quotes from the article? "Some people do piano lessons after school; I do movies."
All right Elle. Yeah, Ok.
doesn't the one in the red dress remind you of Emma Stone in Vogue's steal of the month a few issues ago?
