Elle Fanning For Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011

By Butterboom Writers  /  July 29, 2011

Dakota’s 13 year-old sister is the new face for Marc by Marc Jacob’s.

Hot on the heels of Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu, 13 year-old actress Elle Fanning steps into the spotlight for Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 campaign.

Shot by Jacobs’ favourite photographer, Juergen Teller, these images have the feel of little girl playing dress-up, with Fanning modelling oversized sunglasses, full-length fur coats, granny socks and vintage-inspired dresses for the photos.

The moody 70s look marks a departure from Fanning’s usual angelic red carpet style and, sweet as she looks (those big baby blue eyes!), not everyone will be convinced that this is a fitting look for a young girl.

Big sister and fellow teen actress Dakota Fanning has also modelled for Jacobs and sparked controversy for doing so. But do grown-up fashion-buyers want to see teenagers modelling clothes supposedly aimed at them? Can we imagine ourselves looking great in clothes worn by a 13 year old? Let us know what you think!
