Believe it or not, Elle Fanning — who's been firmly on fashion's radar since she starred in "Somewhere," Sofia Coppola's love letter to Los Angeles, back in 2009 — has yet to land herself a Vogue cover. That is, until now: The Rodarte muse, former Marc Jacobs campaign star, current face of both Miu Miu and Tiffany & Co., and lead actress in the chilling exploration of the modeling industry "The Neon Demon" is featured on the cover of the glossy's June 2017 issue, shot by Annie Leibovitz and styled by Grace Coddington. Talk about a dream team!

The accompanying editorial is romance at its finest, with Fanning posing inside the sprawling, historical mansions and oak trees of New Orleans, where she lived while filming her upcoming gothic movie, Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled." Her cover shot features a baby pink Valentino Haute Couture gown with a matching crown of roses, and the fashion only gets more heavenly from there: Fanning climbs a tree in Gucci, lounges on an antique chaise in Alexander McQueen, and gives a rope swing a whirl in pink, polka-dotted Loewe. It's youthful and completely magical, and as a former New Orleans resident, the shoot captures the soul and charm of the lush city perfectly.

You can check out the full shoot right now on Vogue.com, and be on the lookout for the issue when it hits newsstands on May 23.
