Many tween stars (we're looking at you, Miley) are loathe to dress their age, strapping on tight dresses and high heels despite their mere 14 or 15 years.
Then there are stars like Elle Fanning, who say: I am 13 years old so I'm going to dress like a 13-year-old.
On Monday night Elle dressed her age... if she lived in a Swiss fairytale. The young actress attended the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala wearing a blush-colored, doily-print dress with a long skirt and high neck.
She also wore her blonde hair wrapped around her head in a giant braid that reminded us suspiciously of challah bread (and made us hungry).
The dress and the braid combo pushed the look into the super-cutesy realm... but then again, who better to look super-cutesy than the super cute Miss Fanning?
Check out Elle's red carpet snaps below... what do you think of the fashion-goes-fairytale look?
