Elle Fanning is too cute for words and behaves exactly how a thirteen-year-old should behave. The We Bought A Zoo star posed for a Teen Vogue photoshoot at a home overlooking Los Angeles, where oversized letters spelled out her name on the pool deck. This backdrop served as the perfect set for Fanning’s first Teen Vogue cover (she’s their February gal), who is quite the budding fashionista.
“She’s the go-to fashion person in the family,” Dakota Fanning told the magazine. “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. It’s funny, ’cause when you’re an older sister, you try to be the leader and example, and I’ve recently had to accept that we’re equals. The day has come when I actually need her help. I’ve had to admit that to myself and break down and be like, ‘Little sister, does this look good?’”
Fanning keepers herself grounded by having sleepovers with friends, maintaining a no-boyfriend policy (no time and no freedom from lurking parents) and attending school with normal kids. She does, however, email back and forth with Zoo co-star Scarlett Johansson, who nicknamed the teen “Elbow.”
