Elle Fanning looked utterly stylish in Santa Monica, Calif., as she attended American Cinemathique’s tribute to her career this weekend.
The ‘Girl from Plainville’ star arrived at the organization’s Aero Theater on Friday for a Q&A between screenings of two of her projects: an episode of the Hulu drama series ‘The Great’ and the musical drama of 2018 “Teen Spirit”. For the occasion, Fanning wore a floaty black Khaite dress with long balloon sleeves and a flowing skirt. Fanning’s ensemble was cinched with a studded leather belt and completed with delicate gold bracelets.
“Thank you @am_cinematheque for this retrospective. A big word for a 24 year old, but it means a lot!” Fanning captioned a post from the occasion on instagram. “I absolutely loved being able to answer questions tonight and share a TV series and movie that both mark significant moments in my career so far.”
Fanning’s ensemble was completed with square-toed shoes with black leather uppers. The pair gained an extra edge with the studded inserts at the top of their toes, also creating a complementary moment alongside Fanning’s dress and belt. Although the heels of the shoes weren’t fully visible, the pair added an edge to the actress’ outfit while remaining sleek and contemporary.
That’s not Fanning’s only bold moment in recent weeks. The actress recently posed for Gucci as she attended the brand’s ‘Cosmologinie’ 2023 fashion show in Puglia, wearing leather and metal platform boots.
Fanning has her favorite shoe rotation for red carpets and appearances. Platform sandals and pointy-toe pumps are the ‘Maleficent’ star’s usual pairings, hailing from brands including Miu Miu, Christian Louboutin and Marc Jacobs. In recent months, her feminine style has also acquired a more elegant touch and amplified glamor thanks to towering platform pumps and artistic heels from Cristahlea, Loewe and Mach & Mach.
