When we were taking a look at this week's standout moments from the red carpet, everything was well, coming up Fanning. But as both Dakota and Elle Fanning have various projects to promote — and share the same excellent stylist, Samantha McMillen — it's no surprise each sister had a dynamite week, sartorially speaking.

Dakota is currently on the premiere circuit for her new film "American Pastoral" (in which she stars alongside fellow red-carpet style goddess, Jennifer Connolly), and sported looks by various designers including David Koma, Dolce & Gabbana and Prabal Gurung this past week. Meanwhile, her younger sister, Elle, opted for pieces by Elie Saab, Rodarte and Prada while promoting her current movie, "20th Century Women." (This week also served up another standout Elle moment, featuring the actress sans shoes at LAX.) 

And while Bryanboy might have recently confused the two, carelessly asking, "Which Fanning is this?" in a video posted to Twitter (it was Elle), we think Dakota and Elle fully exhibit their own unique personalities and tastes when it comes to style. But if you're also confused, take notes on the below gallery.
