Young starlets are everywhere these days. Hailee Steinfeld, 15, and Elle Fanning, 13, are heading up some major campaigns this year, and all I can think (besides coveting every Marc Jacobs piece and the Miu Miu shoes) is wow! They are so young. This is not a new trend, Brooke Shields was shocking people in her Calvins at 14, and more recently Dakota Fanning posed in mini versions of Marc by Marc Jacob’s garments in 2006.
Elle Fanning is a self-proclaimed fashion addict, so it seems fitting that she is the newest face of Marc Jacobs. Her shy/serious poses make her seem a little more mature, and I don’t know about you, but I am loving the coat and the deer print dress.
Do you remember these Dakota Fanning ads? Fall 2007 Marc for Marc Jacobs.
Thoughts on these young actresses as the faces of our beloved designers? I think they are pretty stunning, and so I am not too perturbed. The only thing that frustrates me is when I am trying on clothes and I am convinced that they will only look good on rail thin figures, but this is nothing new and I’m not attributing it to these recent campaigns. Tell me your thought, loves.
