From La La Land to Paris, actress and ingenue Elle Fanning made her runway debut at Miu Miu today. The 19-year-old starlet has been a long-time friend and muse of the brand, often sitting front row with her sister Dakota Fanning and donning custom looks for the red carpet—but now she’s officially added runway model to her resume.
Not only did the littlest Fanning open today’s show, a spot usually reserved to amplify the career of newer faces, but she also closed the show, also an important spot in the runway lineup.
Fanning has had a long history with Miu Miu, making her first front row appearance in 2014 at their fall show. Three years later, she was cast in Miu Miu’s Spring 2017 ad campaign—starring alongside top faces like Carolyn Murphy, Lara Stone, Birgit Kos, Ellen Rosa and Mayowa Nicholas.

Miu Miu clearly can’t get enough of Fanning, because she was then cast again for their resort 2018 campaign and their current Spring 2018 campaign imagery.
The Beguiled star also helped the brand celebrate their recent Women’s Tales No. 15 short film during London Fashion Week. The event drew a chic It Brit crowd including Naomi Campbell, Adwoah Aboa and Jourdan Dunn.

Miuccia Prada was one of many designers this season inspired by the ’80s trend—infusing it with a touch of rockabilly and a dose of British punk. Bouffant half-up hair, thickly-lined eyes and oversized coats came in droves, along with acid-washed denim and well-layered looks in bold colors. As for Fanning’s looks, her closing coat–herringbone with leather trimming in a very oversized, menswear-inspired shape–felt like the nighttime version of her opening one, a low-key peacoat in a rich camel. It’s clear that for Fall, Miuccia Prada is inspired by It Brits, a rebellious attitude and her tried-and-true muses.
