When it comes to the wardrobe of Elle Fanning (designer loans or otherwise), she is severely underrated. The cult actress who recently starred in the captivating true-crime drama The Girl From Plainville, stepped out in Los Angeles this week for an FYC screening ahead of awards season for the hit period comedy, The Great.
The daytime event required a certain level of sophistication and in balmy California, head-to-toe Celine by Hedi Slimane was most appropriate. Reaching full-French girl mode, Fanning was dressed in a feminine iteration of the leather jacket, paired on top of embroidered frill collar blouse, high-waisted, wide-legged jeans in a charcoal wash, classic leather belt and lastly, patent leather pumps.
Leaning into the effortless Parisian chic look, Fanning’s hair was left undone with a subtle smoky eye.
Fanning has been praised for her recent appearance and uncanny transformation in The Girl From Plainville. She stars as Michelle Carter who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter of the suicide of her then-boyfriend, Conrad Henri Roy III when he was encouraged to take his own life in 2014. The chilling series is based on the HBO two-part documentary, I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth v. Michelle Carter from 2019.
GRAZIA contributor Melissa Mason recently reviewed the series, penning, “The Girl From Plainville surprised me. I was expecting a series that bordered on exploitation, but there is much to explore in the wider issues at play, and that’s where the writing and performances excel.”
Prior to the new role she was also seen in two season of Hulu series, The Great, alongside Nicholas Hoult where she portrays a young Catherine the Great. Other roles include in Maleficent and Teen Spirit.
