THE PREMIER ONLINE RESOURCE FOR ACTRESS ELLE FANNING, ESTABLISHED IN 2003
Home & UpdatesElle FanningPhoto GalleryMediaOnline & Site

Elle attended the 3rd Annual InStyle Awards last night! She wore a Versace dress with Marilyn Monroe’s face all over it, and was awarded the Breakthrough Style Star. Her acceptance speech included a high school story, in which she was made fun of for being authentic, and, thanks to InStyle, you can read it below.

“We had these things called Free Dress Fridays at our school, ‘cause we went to a school that had uniforms,” she told the A-list crowd. “I remember picking out, laying out my clothes down to, like, the right color socks that you would never see, but I knew they were there.”

So what outfit has she never forgotten?

“I bought this Opening Ceremony top that was light pink and it had Big Bird on it, like little Big Birds all over the top, and I was like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna wear this with these bell-bottom jeans and these platform shoes,” she continued.

“I went to school and I was brutally made fun of,” she said, explaining that she considered changing her style after her classmates didn’t approve. The results? She said changing her look didn’t make her feel like herself, so she hasn’t since, crediting the evening’s Versace number as a risk-taking dress.

“I pushed it. We’re going for it! Thank you for that,” she said. “Now, thanks to Big Bird and to Samantha and to InStyle and my mom…[this] is dedicated to all those high school kids.”
