In fashion, there are some women just about everyone cites as inspiration: Jane Birkin, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn. The icons, well, they'll always be just that—iconic—but that doesn't mean there isn't room for a new era of fashionable females. In our minds, the women on the rise deserve equal time in the spotlight, which is why we're currently turning the focus on one of our favorite up-and-comers, Elle Fanning.
Though she's still only 18 years old, the starlet has proved she has some major fashion chops, both on the red carpet and out in real life. Let's just say the amount of Gucci in her wardrobe is pretty darn impressive. Below, we rounded up a few of her latest and greatest looks, including the stunning red carpet gowns from her latest junket for The Neon Demon. If you're not already crushing on Fanning, we have a feeling you'll have a new style icon after reading this!
