I love this candid photo of It Girl Elle Fanning, the Super 8 scene stealer, heading home from Fashion Week in New York. She’s really displaying a strong sense of style these days, especially for someone so young.
She’s becoming known for her statement glasses.
I love the ones she’s wearing in this photo, by French eyewear designer Francis Klein.

What do you think? Is this a hit or miss?

    Loveee granny chic! she rocks it so well. I definitely had a bit of granny chic going on today, I don’t care if people stared at the bobbles on my jumper! xo

  2. Krissy says:

    I absolutely adore her! I think she’s so sweet and charming and I’m continually impressed (and envious of) her style. Expect great things from her.

  3. Kacie says:

    I think she’s just gorgeous and I like her style! So much better than some of her peers!


  4. Luli says:

    Umhhhhh I think it’s a hit if you are hanging out at home, but a miss in public. Sorry, I’m old school. I like sleek, clean and chic…{please don’t throw tomatoes at me}

  5. Susan says:

    I’m with Luli. lol

  6. Elizabeth says:

    Elegant indeed!
    I’m an English ex-pat in New York and love your take on English style.
    So glad to have discovered you.

  7. I think she’s just darling! I wish I looked as stylish as her in little jammies.

  8. She looks awesome and those glasses are so cute!

  9. She can wear the glasses and they are flattering for her age. Don’t know about them for someone over 18 yrs.?

  10. Beatrice says:

    I think she would benefit from more contrast such as a pair of jeans or a jean jacket. She is a blonde, a darker color whether with denim or in the glasses frame would liven her hair and fair complexion more…

  11. Tina says:

    maybe she was just getting on the plane for a long flight back to LA?

  12. Tina says:

    I have a confession: I have these glasses in red and I love them!!

  13. Diana says:

    In red? I want these in red! The glasses are, in my opinion, the best bit of the ensemble.

    SHe is so lovely. Such a lady. Nice to see that fashion can still be ladylike to the younger generation. I forget who said, ” a dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, and loose enough to show you’re a lady.” I think Diane Keaton is a hit. A BIG HIT for me. I have admired her for many years.

  15. She is lovely and can pull off this look. She stole the movie Super 8.

  16. Liss says:

    gosh I love this girl!!! was watching old criminal minds last night and she is in it as a little girl. cutest kid ever.

    also, I like your sidebar plugin that has your tumblr, is that a widget? gosh wordpress seems to have so much more function

  17. Luli says:

    That’s possible. But kids these days…I personally like to look uber chic when I’m traveling, but oh how times are a changing (lol, I’m just kidding. I’m only in my 30s). Her glasses are really beautiful though.

  18. Tina says:

    Yes, it’s a WordPress plug in! I love it…

  19. Mary Beth says:

    Oh, I adore Elle Fanning! She took my breath away in Super 8. I think she can pull this off at her age. She looks great!

  20. Eri says:

    I reckon its a total success! She is a babe and has the nicest fashion. Get post. x

  21. Hausfrau says:

    It’s a hit for me, absolutely! She’s so stylish, and I thought she was fantastic in Super 8.

  22. Tina says:

    Thank you! xo

  23. monkey says:

  24. chloe says:

    she’s by far one of the prettiest girls i have ever seen. really cute and so beautiful. i wish she would be more successful- like say justin bieber successful, coz i would love to see her pictures in almost every magazine. elle fanning in every front cover of teen magazines, that’d be the dream. she’s only 13, so it could happen.. she had better get on it. haha.
