When dressing for public appearances, teen stars have to walk a fine line between playful/mature, interesting/appropriate and aspirational/relevant. It's a delicate balance that Elle Fanning, age 17, always seems get right even as she comes into her own as a young adult. 

A dinner hosted by Charlotte Olympia Dellal and Liz Goldwyn at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday was no exception. Fanning dressed up a classic day dress — knee-length and navy, notable for its white collar and sheer ruched sleeves — with gold accessories worthy of a dinner party. The platform Charlotte Olympia pumps are certainly glamorous, but the peep-toe gives makes them more accessible. By accessorizing with a hammered gold box clutch by the same designer and bright red nail polish and lipstick, Fanning plays off of the demure '50s vibe of her dress while still remaining age-appropriate. Just another fashion win for the younger Fanning.
