First, Hailee Steinfeld landed Miu Miu, and now Elle Fanning is the Fall 2011 face of Marc by Marc Jacobs. Though she’s only 13 years old, Elle is no stranger to the fashion world. Earlier this year she starred in a promotional film for Rodarte and like Hailee Steinfeld, she’s been praised for red carpet style that is both fashion-forward and age-appropriate. Now, both young actresses are starring in ad campaigns for the diffusion lines of hugely influential designers like Miuccia Prada and Marc Jacobs.
As with Hailee’s Miu Miu campaign, forum members are happy to see Elle representing Marc by Marc Jacobs. “I just adore the result of this campaign,” wrote Frws. “I get a very nostalgic and vintage vibe from it and Elle really knows how to sell clothes!! Can't wait for the rest!”
For agee, there was a little something lacking, but it had nothing to do with Elle. “I like the pose, the hair, the setting and the vibe,” she wrote, “but I don't like the dress and for that reason, it is an almost for me.” Four out of five ain't so bad.
