"With a ballet-dancer frame perfect for Rodarte and Valentino, the 12-year-old star of Sofia Coppola’s new film, Somewhere, has emerged as a fashion-world darling. See pictures of Elle Fanning’s sartorial evolution." - the opening line of a piece of steaming bullshit nonsense written by Isabel Wilknison at The Daily Beast. It continues, "Though she’s still missing five teeth, Elle has shot up to 5-foot-6, and dresses look good on her ballet-dancer frame. 'More designers are going to want to dress her because she’s tall—it’s sounds crazy to say someone has a good figure at 12—but she captures a youthful spirit,' says Interview’s entertainment director, Lauren Tabach-Bank. 'She’s not oversexed, but she can wear clothing well.'" Oh, she's not oversexed? AT TWELVE AND WITHOUT FIVE TEETH? What a miracle! Great work, Isabel. I love when bloggers evaluate the "perfect" "ballet dancer" body of a pubescent girl. If you want to remind Ms. Wilkinson that this is dangerous, idiotic crap, you can find her on Twitter. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
