7 times Elle Fanning literally dressed like a princess

If jersey is your worst nightmare, your sneakers have never been to the motherland (aka the gym) and the word hoodie makes you break into a nervous sweat, pay homage to your fearless occasionwear torchbearer, Elle Fanning, making a case for getting dressed up every time you head out. Sequins, tufty marabou feathers and dainty satin bows — here are seven times Elle resembled a modern-day princess…

All that glitters

Be still our beating hearts, because this sweet mini dress just took things from zero to 100 real quick. The sugared-almond shade and fish-scale sequins tip a hat to the '60s, but the encrusted dip neckline gives off "don't mess" armor vibes. And yes, it comes with a cape, matching sandals and a headband.

Let them eat cake

That time Elle literally looked like a cross between a frosted cupcake and a flower. The Beguiled actress revamped the dreaded 2000s sweetheart neckline with a tulle gown in the prettiest shade of lilac and added pearls for max girlie vibes.

Ruffle some feathers

And you thought only Barbie could rock marabou feathers for that fancy dinner... Well, Elle has proven that it’s all about color palettes to soften a statement. A mint-green bandeau dress paired with nude satin mules and topped off with a pink clutch? Bellissimo. And that's without even mentioning the perfect finishing touch: baby-blue liner.

No place like home

No Toto in sight, but this Dorothy-inspired look has us in love with everywhere-for-SS17 broderie anglaise. The midi cornflower-blue dress — with bow-neck and tiered skirt — channels Little House on the Prairie, but the update on the ruby slippers (badass caging clashed with sleek satin) are no frolicking matter.

Flower girl

Who said less was more? The teen queen demonstrated exactly what going gung-ho on feminine 'fits looks like with this pale-green sheer dress, featuring a 3D flower hem and embellished vine detailing. The reason it works? OTT is balanced out with minimal makeup and nada accessories.

Paint by numbers

Nothing says princess vibes like a hand-painted unicorn on the meringue trail of your red carpet gown, right? Think of this Vivienne Westwood custom-made couture dress as a souped-up version of the graffiti/customization trend that’s still going large for summer. Love.

Bouquet babe

Florals don’t have to be basic. Case in point? This oh-so-pretty corset dress with layers of appliqué buds and barely there '90s spaghetti straps. Elle kept all eyes on the dress with minimal add-ons, save some rock’n’roll winged liner.
