Hey Little Sister

Elle Fanning for Interview Magazine
Photography by Steven Pan

Remember when Dakota Fanning grew up and became a fashion plate? Little sister Elle is only 12, but considering the age of most models, she doesn't look one bit out of place here in Alberta Ferretti and Chanel. In fact, she reminds me a little of Gemma Ward.

I'm getting awfully excited to see Elle in Somewhere later this month. I think this will be the role that takes her from childhood to adolescence, just as Hounddog did for Dakota. (Go add it to your Netflix list now if you don't know what I'm talking about!) I love seeing the talented wee ones grow up.

More photos after the jump...


  1. She looks a lot older than that!!!
    I love that braid, it's a little weird with the Lolita reference I think they might be making? But I think I might try to rock it on a non-hair-washing day :)

  2. That second photo is absolutely incredible. I love it so much.

  3. Oh my goodness! She is absolutely gorgeous and most definitely does not look like she is 12! That first picture is my favorite- her eyes are so captivating and that dress is adorable on her <3


  4. They're such a talented family the Fannings! Both girls are so cute and this one is just gorgeous! I can't believe she's 12 and yes, she also reminds me of Gemma W too.

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment hun!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  5. Wow shes stunning! I had no idea how much older she got! Hunnie thanks so much for leaving me that link! I'm most definitely going to send over my work tonight! So sweet of you to think of me!!! Sorry I've been MIA lately, things are so crazy this time of year! I'm sure your in the same boat! xoxoxo M

  6. Wow, she's so pretty if young looking. She's going to be incredible!

  8. Wow! Dakota has transitioned so well, but I don't know much about her younger sister. What a beautiful child she is!

  9. Seriously, 12 years old? So not fair. I love her braids....but me thinks I am officially too old to rock those? Will attempt soon, perhaps with a "how-to" post following if there is a positive outcome.

  10. She kind of reminds me of Twiggy. I don't know why...she has that high fashion, swinging London look about her, I think. :) These photos are beautiful. She looks waaay older than 12 though. Lol.

    I recently saw the preview for her new movie and it looks fab!

  11. She is so adorable..Look at her amazing eyes and I so love her braids:) Hugs and kisses, darling

    Ps: I am hosting a charming scarf GIVEAWAY today, just in time for cozy Christmas!

  13. this is crazy, and the funny thing is she doesn't look like a kid playing dress up, she looks totally at home in all of these designer outfits!


  14. what a beautiful child... that face look like porcelain!

  15. Elle is adorable! I think she's going to be quite the stunner when she grows up. I hope she takes after Dakota, and steers clear of the Lindsey Lohan track! This is such a beautiful set of b&w portraits, too!

  16. I saw her on Jay Leno and her interview made me love her even more.. so down to earth.

  17. Amazing! Its actually amazing piece of writing, I have got much clear idea regarding from this post.
