Elle Fanning: My Clothes Are Too Weird For Dakota (PHOTOS)
In case you've been living under a rock for the past year, you know just how much of a style star Elle Fanning has become. Not only has she sat front row at shows and hobnobbed with designers, she's also developed an encyclopedic knowledge of fashion.
As older sis Dakota told Teen Vogue, "Elle knows every single model, every single collection, every single piece from every single collection. She has a real passion, and it's not at all in a materialistic way. She genuinely appreciates the workmanship and creativity."
Elle also appreciates wearing cute clothes, meaning she often steals away to her sister's closet and nabs a dress or seven. But in a new interview with ASOS magazine, Elle says that the clothes-sharing is a one-way street:
Do you borrow Dakota's clothes?
Yeah, even though we have different styles, it's one of the biggest fights we get into. She doesn't like it when I sneak into her closet and steal bits and pieces. She doesn't take any of my clothes though. Mine are a bit too weird for her.
But seriously, Dakota should try it out. Elle's offbeat style sense is working for her. She even manages, she says, to funk up her school uniform. She told Asos:
I've just got some '80s men's khaki pants -- super big, but I put a belt around them. And we have a plaid skirt. I keep mine below the knee and it looks really schoolgirlie with a puffy sleeve shirt and socks. And I've just got some Saddle Oxfords [black and white '50s brogues] to wear too.
In other words, chicest middle-schooler ever.
