Love the Look: Elle Fanning's Summery White Chanel Dress

Elle Fanning in Chanel

There's no doubt about it: Elle Fanning is the fashion world's favorite tween star!

The Super 8 actress turned heads at her very first Paris fashion show when she attended the Chanel Haute Couture presentation on Tuesday, July 5. The 13-year-old actress looked glamorous in a white Chanel Haute Couture dress from the fashion house's Spring 2009 collection and chunky white Chanel sandals.

While not all young girls can afford to wear Chanel haute Couture, the look is easy to replicate at home. White dresses are perfect for summer and opting for a dress with a fitted waist like Elle's will make a simple white frock look more elegant.

The young star has a reputation for loving high-fashion clothes while most girls her age prefer shopping at Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. Fashion also runs in the actress' family – Elle's older sister, Dakota Fanning, has appeared in ad campaigns for Marc Jacobs and is currently the face of his new perfume, Oh, Lola! Elle was recently named the face of the designer's Marc by Marc Jacobs line, which appeals to a younger clientele.

    I don't blame her though. I blame the people in her camp. Having a lot of light on you ALWAYS makes your skin appear lighter. If they had Elle get a bit of a tan (take her to the beach for some fun!), or given her some bronzing lotion she would appear less ghostly.

    Somebody PLEASE give this child some bronzer, or some sun. She looks like a ghost.
