Elle Fanning: Like a Lady

Once upon a time there was a little girl who happened to be Dakota Fanning’s baby sister. This girl grew up awfully fast and, with only 13 years old, she attended to Paris Fashion Week for the Chanel Couture Extravaganza runway show at the grand palais. Enough? Never, that same year (2011) WMagazine had her photographed along with her sister for a special article called: “Sister Act”. Ever since then, she has only continued climbing the ladder of success, participating in several audiovisual productions and, on top of all, becoming a true fashionista. Who am I talking about? Elle Fanning, of course.

She’s pretty amazing, isn’t she? With only 14 years old she dresses up as many of us would like to. Today, we’re going to analyze Elle’s look when attending the screening of Ginger & Rosa at L.A., which awarded her a place into VOGUE UK best dressed celebrities from November 5, 2012 to November 9, 2012. Here’s the link! (http://www.vogue.co.uk/spy/celebrity-photos/2012/11/5/best-dressed—09/11/12/gallery/11).

So much for an introduction, don’t you think so? Let’s get started!

What is she wearing?

Elle is covered in Dolce & Gabbana, from the tip of her toes to the top of her head.

The shoes don’t show very well (boomer), but thanks to JUST JARED (http://www.justjared.com/photo-gallery/2754170/elle-fanning-ginger-rosa-screening-with-christina-hendricks-10/), here’s another picture where we can actually look at them: Beautiful pointy white lace shoes! Perfect for the classical look. Why are these a good option? Because they pump up every look. You could be wearing blue skinny jeans, a plain random color t-shirt and a little jacket and voilà! Add the shoes and you’re extra chic.

The skirt is perfect for her because, well, she’s still a child. It’s very formal and, see how it goes right under the knees? That’s alright if you’re her height (1.70). Never use one of this without high heels, never! It accentuates the waist and makes it look smaller due to the falling of the fabric, which sort of opens at the end.

The chemise is pretty basic: white, in what appears to be silk, baggy sleeves, smaller collar details: perfect. The master stroke? The ribbon. What a ribbon! It’s “T” shaped and falls beautifully on her chest, giving an unusual taste to the whole thing. It invades “all that white”, which makes our brains believe she’s thinner, like all there is is the ribbon, or the white that remains uncovered.

Final detail: the headband. WHAT A HEADBAND! A beaded accessory that completes any outfit.

How to copy?

High cut skirts (up to the waist) that open op all the way to the end. Wear it with a chemise and remember, no patterns! Just plain colors. Match wisely, here’s a page where you can actually see if they match or not: http://colorschemedesigner.com

Pumps with pointy or round ends are perfect for the outfit. Remember, if your skirt goes right under your knees, high heels are mandatory.

Instead of the ribbon (which can be easily imitated), you can also wear a brooch, preferably one that contains a big jewel and it’s metal platform, nothing else.

The beaded headband can be found at any mall, really. Wear them with your hair down, a pony tail, a braided bun (or just the bun)… there’s a world of possibilities, try them all and see what favors you the most!

And that’s pretty much it, crazy diamonds! Easy, huh? Remember to shine all over and dream on! (Though I do know I shouldn’t tell you to do so because you do it anyway). Take care. Lotta love. Ciao!
