Little Elle Fanning, younger sister to Dakota, fashion fairy and acclaimed actress of Somewhere and Super8 fame has launched her Instagram account @missellefanning with a selection of sugary sweet shots from her Sweet Sixteen birthday party. While she actually doesn’t turn 16 until 9th April this year, she did a good job of celebrating the milestone in her signature turbo girly style.

From a 5-tiered sugar rose cake to her pink princess dress and tiara, her party was the antithesis of the raunched up teen parties we’ve become accustomed to seeing.
Dakota also posted an Instagram shot of her sister’s soiree captioning her shot to say she ‘..looked like a princess.’ The other shots from her party show her posing in a photobooth, clearing away mountains of dusty pink roses and cuddling up to her BFFs.

Soon to be seen starring as in Disney’s blockbuster Maleficent, Elle’s career is going from strength to strength. As is her fashion CV. Elle’s innocent aesthetic has made her one of industry’s most in-demand faces, with campaigns for brands including Marc by Marc Jacobs (aged 13) and Miu Miu (for Spring/Summer 2014) already under her belt. Elle’s red carpet style is equally girlish with pastels, blown up skirts, a demure modesty and an off-kilter sweetness defining her look. She’s known for selecting leftfield labels from Carven to Rodarte – a brand she’s had a long relationship with – and experimental hair and make-up.
