If at the beginning of the year you told me that Elle Fanning was going to be raking up positions on my best dressed lists I would have looked at you lopsided. This year Elle really shined. She stepped out of her sisters shadow and slayed the red carpet. Mostly wearing soft pastels from designers like Gucci, Elie Saab, Dolce & Gabbana, and Prada It was amazing look after amazing look. I can even say that her hair and makeup were always on point, often a point of contention for many of her previous looks. My favorite look from Elle this year, and the look that seemed to signal her turn of grace, was the nude Zuhair Murad Spring 2016 Couture strapless gown embellished with pink and green flowers that she wore to the Cannes Film Festival premiere of The Neon Demon. After this year I am really excited to see what 2017 will have in store for Elle. With her film 20th Century Women nominated for a Golden Globe Award I would love to see Elle hit the awards season circuit.
