Elle Fanning’s Rodarte gown at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards fit her personality perfectly — playful and light, yet totally glam. I chatted with the Super 8 actress about her love of fashion and her growing reputation as a style icon. “I’ve always loved clothes ever since I was little,” she told me, adding that she’s “really close” with Rodarte designers Laura and Kate Mulleavey. Elle, who was nominated for Best Young Actor/Actress, was giddy when discussing her status. “I look up to so many people in fashion,” she said, “so it’s funny for people to say that I’m a fashion icon.”
Elle’s big sister, Dakota, has outed her as a serious Robert Pattinson fan, so I had to ask her about maybe one day working with the Twilight star. “I would love that!” said Elle. “My sister said he was so nice, and I got to meet him at the premiere. That would be fun!” she said with a smile. Let’s make it happen, Hollywood!
