Elle Fanning might have had a penchant for princess-worthy gowns throughout the promo tour of her most recent blockbuster flick, Maleficent, but her latest ensemble was way more womanly, as these stunning shots prove.
We clocked the 16-year-old actress as she arrived at the 2014 Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet in LA rocking an uncharacteristically sexy dress.
Modelled in a tomato red tone, Elle's printed Vivienne Westwood frock is undoubtedly her most grown-up look to date. Gorgeously form-fitting, the bustier style of the dress showed off Elle's toned physique perfectly, transforming her from a giggling girl to a strong young woman in a flash.
The bright hue of the dress offset her porcelain skin a dream and, in true Elle form, she kept her long blonde tresses impossibly sleek and her make-up understated and natural.
With this much fashion savvy in her teens, we can only imagine the style maven she'll blossom into in years to come. After all; we didn't look nearly this good when we were sixteen...
