For years, Dakota Fanning has been known as one of Hollywood’s most reliable and likable child stars but as she graduates high school and heads off to college, younger sister Elle Fanning is ready to step into Dakota’s shoes and become the next go-to young actress.

Elle has showed promise in small roles in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Deja Vu, but she proved she can carry a film in last year’s critically-acclaimed Somewhere. Now, she is taking the next step toward stardom as a budding fashion icon and as one of the leads of the new summer blockbuster Super 8.
