Elle Fanning appears as the new face of Marc by Marc Jacobs
Last month we revealed that Dakota Fanning was the new face of Marc Jacobs’ brand new fragrance, Oh Lola, and now it seems that the actress’ younger sister Elle is keen to follow in her footsteps.
At just 13 years old Elle Fanning has already starred in a handful of Hollywood movies including The Curious case of Benjamin Button and Super 8, and now feels it is time for her career to branch out in a modelling direction.
The pint-sized actress is appearing in the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 advertising campaign, shot by photographer Juergen Teller. The campaign also features quirky actress Helena Bonham Carter who has just finished a ten year stint as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter franchise.
It is thought that Elle didn’t land the job thanks to her older sister Dakota, but was infact picked for the position after starring in ‘Somewhere’ in 2010 which was directed by Marc Jacob’s good friend Sophia Coppola. The film was also sponsored by Louis Vuitton of which Jacobs has been the creative director for since 1997.
Elle can be seen wearing the designer’s range of eclectic and bold prints complete with quirky accessories and heavy layering for Autumn/Winter 2011.
