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?

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.
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?
Hollywood's Hippy Chicks: Michelle Williams, Dianna Agron and More Dare to Wear Exaggerated-Hip Dresses

There’s been a lot of volume on the red carpet lately — and we’re not talking about hair. Some of Hollywood’s most stylish are bringing their fashion A-game (and taking a major risk) with sculptural-hip dresses.
Sophia Bush and Michelle Williams both recently stepped out in frocks by Katie Ermilio with sharp definition at the hips. Dianna Agron’s belted, red structured Louis Vuitton dress is both feminine and fashion-forward — we’d love to borrow it for an upcoming bridal shower.
Elle Fanning combined her ethereal looks with her style-setting instincts in a whimsical Lanvin gown with a voluminous skirt and black sash. And Emma Roberts styled her bell-shaped Honor skirt with a white blouse from the N.Y.C. based label.

“For a long time, I refused to wear jeans. I liked high-waisted pants, but jeans made me feel like I wasn’t being unique,” Fanning says in the latest issue of New York Magazine.
The 14-year-old has since lifted her ban on denim — though skinnies still have no place in her closet. “Even now, I won’t wear the skinny-jeans style, because most people wear those. They have to be baggier, boyfriend-looking, or sort of like a mom jean.”
And just like with her style, Fanning likes to experiment in the beauty department, too. Inspired by Chanel’s recent resort show, she gave pink eyeshadow a shot. (What, like you didn’t base your makeup off the Chanel runway when you were in eighth grade?)
“The models had on different pastel wigs, and I wanted to do my take on a ’60s eye, but with pink,” she explains. Watch out Kiernan Shipka, Fanning is gunning for your Most Precocious Tween title.
