Elle Fanning Stars in Marc by Marc Jacobs' Fall 2011 Campaign
Our love for Elle Fanning knows no bounds. So we're obviously thrilled that she's starring in the Marc by Marc Jacobs' Fall 2011 campaign, following in her sister's footsteps. Is it weird that we want to be friends with a 13-year-old?
We hate to pit a 15-year-old against a 13-year-old but it's hard not to draw comparisons between Hailee Steinfeld's Bruce Weber-shot fall campaign for Miu Miu and Elle Fanning's for Marc by Marc Jacobs (9 more of the Juergen Teller-shot images have just emerged on Fashion Gone Rogue). Both are lovely, talented actresses in their early teens who have a sophistication and a fashion sense that is beyond their years. We love both girls and both campaigns equally--we're not picking favorites. But, it's hard not to noticed the stylistic similarities between the two, especially in these shots--in which both girls are wearing longish dresses, dark sunglasses, ankle boots, holding brown clutches and standing outside next to tree trunks.

Only three celebrities will have the honor of gracing Marc Jacobs' exclusive front row this NYFW, we hear from two separate sources: Sofia Coppola, Elle Fanning and her sister Dakota.
For the past few seasons, Marc has been especially selective in deciding which celebrities, if any, receive invites to his runway shows. He told Style.com last February: "I'm not into the celebrity thing like we used to. That's boring . . . We're not going to have celebrities. We used to have all the celebrities and people there, and I think that at that moment in time, that's what people loved. It generated so much press and at a certain point it was like, 'Did anybody actually watch the show?'"
Of course, the presence of Leighton Meester, Vanessa Hudgens, Woopi Goldberg and Martha Stewart at last season's show seemed like a departure from that, but only one or two celebrities attended the seasons preceding that one, up until Spring 2009, to which every celebrity you can think of--from Jay-Z to J.Lo to Wynona Ryder--showed up.
If this rumor is true, we like this season's tightly-edited guest list.
This week, our girl Elle Fanning made magic in Marc Jacobs, Karen Elson wowed in Valentino, Diane Kruger glowed in Alessandra Rich with Joshua Jackson at her side, and Rose Byrne let her hair down in Christian Cota.
