elegant elle

Monday, July 04, 2011
What’s not to love about newcomer, Elle Fanning? The 13 year old sibling of the famous Dakota, has already made her debut in the pages of Teen Vogue and through the eyes of Juergen Teller’s camera for Marc Jacobs. Before she was so recognised, she was simply labelled as Dakota’s ‘little sister’ but now she is being shown in a completely different light. Her acting career has kick-started with We Bought a Zoo, the comedy featuring Matt Damon and D&G beauty Scarlett Johansson (from the delicious perfume advertisement, Rose the One) and the covert thriller film produced by Steven Spielberg, Super 8. (Totally referenced that last sentence from Teen Vogue June/July!)
I also came across this fabulous editorial (not sure where, any suggestions?). Elle is dressed so much like an elegant lady with the exquisite detail of the clothing and her pretty make-up. I have a feeling this actress/model/muse will surprise everyone with her talent, style and the assets that set her apart from her lovely sister, Dakota... (wait, she already has!) 

Well, bloggers, it has been a while! Three days feels like a century! Yesterday we celebrated my Grandpa's birthday with a chocolate layer cake that made me feel twice my size after I ate it, but it was still amazing! Anyway, my Internet has been painfully slow, so I couldn't upload pictures OR posts, so I resorted to leaving my blog for a while. This is my explanation for not replying to comments (rather rude of me!) and I apologise to all of you lovely commenter's who are yet to receive a reply. 
I hope you all have a marvellous week, and happy July!

thanks for the lovely comment you left me yesterday. I was very touched. I'm chuffed you entered my giveaway, as I think the brooch would really suit your style. I hope to do another giveaway if I reach 100 from the same store because I just love their stuff!

Take care for now.

Oh my, I'm so surprised at everyone growing up so fast, especially celebrities. And I thought Dakota herself was already looking like a young woman...

Congrats on your grandpa's birthday and oh yum, a chocolate cake sounds heavenly right now. :)

I love Elle Fanning, it's amazing how someone so young can take the fashion industry by storm! She is such a classic beauty. xoxo, Veena <3

Even though they are sisters, Elle has such a different look than Dakota. Both of them are so sweet and refreshing, too.

Congratulations to your Grandpa!!! Mmm sinful chocolate cake sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. xxx

The photoshoot is gorgeous, although it sort of bugs me how grown up they've dressed her considering how young she really is! xx
