Hollywood loves a good sister act. Mary-Kate and Ashley, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, Paris and Nickie, and now Dakota and Elle can be enlisted into that sisterhood.
Not only do these goldie-locked beauties have legit thespian skills, they have serious style cred as well. Dakota, the elder Fanning, paved the way starring in blockbuster hits such as War of the Worlds and most recently Twilight (was she not the CREEPIEST child vampire since Kirsten Dunst?). She also starred in my favorite rocker chick flick, The Runaways, where I feel she still keeps that rocker attitude with tough boots, sleek jackets and some killer pink ombre hair with a girlish chic flair.
And as any common little sister does, Elle Fanning followed her big sister’s footsteps right into acting. She starred in the J.J Abrams alien movie Super 8 and recently We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon. Acting may run in this family, but it is certainly not the #1 passion for all of them. “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.” says Dakota to Teen Vogue.
Elle’s passion for fashion shows with her quirky sense of style that is quickly being copied by teen ingenue wannabes everywhere. You can see Elle regularly wearing a granny/librarian chic outfit during the day and then magically transform into a fairy princess on the red carpet.
One thing is for sure, you will never see these girls wear the same outfit. “It’s one of the biggest fights we get into. She [Dakota] 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,” Elle admits to the Huffington Post.
What I love about them is they seem to be the real McCoy, genuine even in who they are as people, actors and burgeoning style queen bees. Let’s just hope sibling rivalry doesn’t get the best of them when it comes to their closets anymore!
