Many teenage girls find themselves embroiled in battles with their parents about what they can go out of the house dressed in.
But that certainly doesn’t seem to be a problem for Elle Fanning, who attended a fashion show on Monday evening in what many would consider to be an unsuitable outfit for a teenage girl.
The 15-year-old opted for a very risqué dress, which featured a cut-out keyhole detail in the chest area and a sheer skirt.
Dressed in a style more suited to an older actress the younger sister of Dakota wore the floor length dress, which revealed her legs beneath.
It was however the top section which raised eyebrows, as although she has the career of a woman double her age under her belt, she is in fact still just a teenage girl.
Completing her look she opted to keep her make-up relatively simple, just accentuating her eyes with a touch of eyeliner.
Her long blonde fell loose around her shoulders creating a very sophisticated look that any older actress would aspire to achieve.
The daring appearance comes after the actress was spotted leaving a nail salon in Los Angeles on Sunday after getting a pedicure, clearly aware of what is expected of her in terms of her appearance.
But her post-pedi footwear of flip flops and tissue stuffed toes kind of killed the rocky look she had been channeling on arrival to the salon.
Carrying the Doc Martin boots she had been wearing before her treatment she instead opted for open toe flip flops to prevent her newly varnished nails from smudging.
Despite her youth she is already known for her great sense of style and wore a black jersey dress under a black cropped leather biker jacket for instant cool.
Her platinum blonde hair with dark roots creeping in and ghostly pale sin complimented the look beautifully.
The Super 8 star still looked pretty despite staying practical with her footwear as she walked down a Los Angeles street wearing a pair of attractive specs.
Elle is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning and mainly known for her starring roles in Phoebe in Wonderland, Somewhere, and We Bought a Zoo.
The sisters were last seen together when attending Paris Fashion Week, where they made sure no one mixed them up.
Dakota appeared mysterious and edgy in a long, black lace dress, as Elle was angelic and fun in a white, floral-embroidered number.
While the talented teen has already earned her acting credentials, her star is set to keep on rising and she has four films scheduled for release next year.
She will star as Princess Aurora in the hotly anticipated Disney movie Maleficent, opposite Angelina Jolie as the titular villain.
Elle also appears as Joe Albany's daughter in a biopic about the pianist titled Low Down, in sci fi film Young Ones with Nicholas Hoult, and voices a character in animated movie The Boxtrolls.
