I love her style, the camel pant, the hat, the lomo around her neck, her shoes and her top (the whole outfit actually)

And also, in the same post, post #657, there is a photo by a paparazzi where she's being photographed by another paparazzi (?) and they're being photographed by the woman accompanying her (?).
I found that hilarious .

she looks lovely in the candids from Paris! I remember seeing an interview from a few months ago in which Elle said she's obsessed with Paris, but she's never been there. She must be having a great time

Cannot unsee her shoes at Chanel now. Horrifying. And the jacket too.

But the dress on it's own is super cute on her.

Adorable article about attending the Chanel show.

Quote:
You never forget your first time. Especially if it’s your first visit to Paris, and your first runway show, and that show happens to be the Chanel couture extravaganza at the Grand Palais. “It’s like a dream!” enthused thirteen-year-old actress Elle Fanning when reached by phone the day after the show, which took place at 10:00 p.m. as the summer night sky, visible from the Palais’s dome, finally darkened. “They said it was the latest—or one of the latest—times a show ever started!” she relayed breathlessly. “The theme was 'midnight in Paris,' with shiny stars over the Place Vendôme. They re-created it, but with Coco on top of the column—everyone knew it was her. It was amazing.”

And the clothes, Elle? “A lot of them were very sparkly. And there was one look that was black with puffy sleeves that went straight down, it was tight and corset-like, and where her hips started, it poufed out. And those boots that were see-through black material showed the leg! And there was one colored suit, it was bright pinky-purple, with bright pinky-purple boots to match!” What else impressed her? “The hats! They were worn on the back of the head, and one of the special hats had feathers that looked like the model’s hair in the back.”

So, if she could have ONLY one couture frock to take back to middle school in Southern California, what would she pick? “That black dress. But I wouldn’t wear the gloves—instead I would wear a lot of rings, cameos, and stuff. Those boots were pretty cool, but maybe I would wear chunky shoes. I love chunky shoes, even with a frilly dress. And I don’t know if I would wear the hat.” On second thought: “There was another dress that Freja—she’s sort of the Chanel girl now, in a funny way—was wearing. It was long with like a tank top and it poufed out at the hip. And when she turned her back, it was cut-out. My favorite part is seeing the clothes from the back. I can’t see that when I look shows up on the Internet!”

Does Fanning long for that iconic Chanel ensemble, the suit? “They’re so classic. But I think I would want to wait until I get older—and then it will be like, ‘I’m finally getting to wear the suit!’ ’’ What about the famous quilted handbag? “I don’t have one! But Dakota just graduated from high school and we gave her the Chanel bag she’s been wanting forever—the black one with the chain. We got the chain in silver; it’s younger than gold. Hopefully I’ll get one when I graduate.”

Fanning’s grandmother, who accompanied her, along with her dad, to the couture show, was sporting a Chanel bag for the occasion, while Fanning herself was dressed in a short Chanel dress that she says she is pretty sure is couture from 2009. “It was off-white and strapless and over it there was a little short shirt like an overlay, cut on an angle—very cute! Then I wore these chunky shoes—they were white platforms with silver. They let me keep the shoes!”

It has been a Chanel-centric adventure for Fanning in the City of Light. “The day before the show I went to Coco’s apartment over the store. They gave me a tour; you have to be invited. She loved Asian culture—the screens were so neat! And all these lion statues. I remember Karl did a show with lions, and I think he gets a lot of inspiration from her.”

After the couture show, she went backstage, “to say hey to Karl, and we took pictures,” she said. “It’s so weird to be in front of him—the cuffs, the rings. He is so recognizable; he is probably the most recognizable person ever! At the end of the show they had this really, really old lady backstage who does things by hand; they pointed her out because she does all the braiding for all the jackets. No one else knows how to do it!” [Note to reader: When you are thirteen, “really, really old” is an intensely relative concept.]

The rest of the audience may have been off to a midnight supper or a round of glamorous carousing, but for Fanning it was back to her hotel room, to call up her mother and sister and discuss the events of the day. “Dakota was so jealous! She’s never been to a couture show so I have one on her.”

hmm, well when I was thirteen, really, really old was about 80/90+, and I know most of my friends thought that too, so this kind of annoyed me - but that's very fussy and irrelevant, I know

Surprised Dakota's never been to a couture show, then again she doesn't have the same style, charm and sweetness as Elle.

She has long surpassed being just my favorite Fanning sister. That outfit in Paris (the candid one erasing the Chanel show one from my memory) has cemented her as my style icon. her style so much. And she's perfect for pretty much any campaign (except Chanel, Elle please stay far away from Chanel), Marc Jacobs, Rodarte. With her height and figure, pretty much anything.

hah.. when I was thirteen, 17 was old, 25 was old adult, the rest were really really old people, when someone around 36 would die and people said he was too young to die, in my mind I was thinking 'hmm, maybe he's lived a good [LONG] life'.. definitely don't miss those years .

I hadn't noticed her nose, I agree it's super cute.

The second to last picture in the MJ campaign has got to be my favorite.. and I love her quote at the end of the article 'Dakota was so jealous!' , she always brings up her sister so casually and seems completely untouched by the competence created by fans and the media, I love that.. they're both lovely girls with individual careers and taste.
