Elle Fanning may be only 16, but she’s already hit a ton of incredibly cool milestones on her life checklist. Her latest movie Maleficent dominated the box office this weekend, she’s been a face of Miu Miu and Marc by Marc Jacobs and — as she proves in her Teen Vogue June cover story, she’s got the right idea about being true to her style.

Style Highlights from the Maleficent World Premiere (Including Angelina Jolie's 'Rubberized' Gown and Elle Fanning's Choker)

May/29/2014 at 11:44 AM ET

Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning have been turning it out in the style department for the Maleficent promotional tour, and Wednesday’s world premiere in Hollywood marked their most fashion-forward appearances so far. The co-stars continued to select red carpet ensembles that nod to their on-screen characters — Jolie as Maleficent, the evil fairy, and Fanning as Princess Aurora (aka Sleeping Beauty). Plus, their accessories were so major (or killer, in Jolie’s case), we have to talk about them. See both actresses’ head-turning looks — from all angles — below. Read More

We love that Elle Fanning takes fashion risks. (Remember this tie-dye gown or her “flatform” kick?) And of course, when you’re 15, anything goes. The actress proved that Wednesday at The Hollywood Reporter‘s 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon in one of the most unique designs we’ve seen in a long time: a silk Wes Gordon sheath dress featuring a band of tulle around the stomach and on the skirt. Basically, she wore a high-fashion bikini, and we’re fascinated by this new style development.

Now how exactly does one classify this look? It’s definitely a cousin to the crop top. (Somewhere, a Kardashian is reading and having this dress shipped overnight.) And since midriff-baring is a huge trend, we’re curious to see if stars follow suit with see-through stomach styles.

Fanning supported her stylist Samantha McMillen (who also styles Evan Rachel Wood and Johnny Depp) at the annual luncheon. The young star has definitely become someone to watch on the fashion scene, between her front row seats at designer shows in Paris and glamorous ad campaigns. Catch some photos below, and tell us: What do you think of Fanning’s look?

Miu Miu's Latest Ads Star Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen - and Lupita Nyong'o In Her First-Ever Fashion Campaign!

Jan/10/2014 at 12:32 PM ET

Clearly we weren’t the only ones to sit up and take notice of Lupita Nyong’o’s style when she burst onto the scene last fall. The 12 Years a Slave actress has made a meteoric rise in the fashion world — first landing a stunning editorial photo in Vogue, and now landing a spot in Miu Miu’s spring/summer ad campaign.

The actress joins other emerging young actresses including Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote (not pictured) for the fun, retro-feeling ads shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. It’s fun to see Nyong’o in a totally unexpected outfit — while she’s most likely to wear sleek, streamlined sheaths and matching delicate shoes on the red carpet, in her ad, she’s decked out in a beaded bustier top, pink tights and some serious platform sandals. And we’re not surprised she wears it so well; after all, one of the first dresses she wore that caught our eye was a lovely bird print Miu Miu dress.

Fanning (above) appears to be more in her comfort zone in the ads, wearing a high-neck tulip print frock, textured yellow tights and red ankle-strap heels. The youngest Fanning sister hams it up, allowing plenty of her silly disposition to shine through — after all, she is only 15.

And Olsen, 24, channels her inner ’70s diva for her ad, showing off pin-straight strands, lace-up boots over red socks, a covetable handbag and a palapable sense of ennui. “The actresses’ poses, full of personality, convey their diverse points of view, effortlessly translating the new spirit of the Miu Miu woman,” the company says in a statement.

Q: What’s super-adorable, takes almost no effort and can cost as little as zero dollars?
A: Adding a headband to your hair, as seen on these stars.

We love an elaborate braid as much as the next girl, but sometimes you want to get a “done” look in under a minute. That’s why we’re digging these four very different looks.

Prices of these headpieces range from $498 (Elle Fanning’s Jennifer Behr “Delicate Vine” circlet) to “free if you just got a present” (Kirsten Dunst‘s black satin ribbon).

And we also love how uniquely each star has styled her look, from Fanning’s tiara-like crown, to Kelly Osbourne’s studded headband to give her updo a little more edge, to Katy Perry‘s traditional placement or her floral number, to Dunst weaving hers right behind her bangs for a schoolgirl style.

But the best part of all: This look works with nearly any hair length or texture, meaning there’s no excuse for you not to give it a shot tomorrow. Tell us: Which headband are you most likely to wear?
