So, Elle Fanning, Does the Runway Have a Better View Than the Front Row?

Welcome to Runway Matters, where we're delivering notes straight from the runway so you can quickly digest the most important trends and noteworthy moments from the F/W 18 shows. 

Miuccia Prada has a knack for making me nostalgic for eras I never knew. Okay, so I missed the '50s and the '80s (just barely), but when I watched her runway show for Miu Miu's F/W 18 collection, I got a strange inkling that bouffants and drop-shoulder jackets are still cool, despite the fact that I've never had those thoughts before. The show reminded me once again that Miuccia always has fun with fashion, and that the rest of us should too. Sure, none of us need lavish satin and crystal-embellished heels, but thanks to her we want them anyway. 

Also worth noting this season is the fact that longtime brand muse Elle Fanning finally made her runway debut. The 19-year-old has starred in campaigns going all the way back to 2014, but this marks the start of a new era for Fanning. 

Below, find Fanning's two runway looks along with a handful of details I found particularly inspiring this season. As always, Miu Miu is guaranteed to put you in a good mood, so why not check it out?
