Elle UK: On Phobias, Friends And What Love Feels Like


Quick-fire questions with February cover star Elle Fanning

According to IMDB Elle Fanning has taken on 55 different roles (with a further seven films coming) since her first acting gig, aged two, in I Am Sam, alongside her older sister, actress Dakota. Needless to say she’s pretty busy. Which is why ELLE’s February cover star Elle likes a quick-fire round of questions.

Here she reveals her karaoke song, what’s always in her fridge, and why she ALWAYS takes the stairs.

Favourite ever film?
Harold and Maud, it’s my favourite ever love story.

On your speed dial?
My sister – we talk a lot.

Music you play on repeat?
I LOVE Dolly Parton, she recently had a concert in New Orleans while I was there filming and I missed it but she’s the coolest.

Favourite food?
I love mac and cheese – crispy on top, creamy underneath. Mmmmm.

Best teacher?
My science teacher at school. I was actually quite good at science and he had snakes and all this cool stuff.

Feminist icon?
Sofia Coppola – she’s a woman in power and a mom and the classiest lady. And Annette Bening.

Karaoke song of choice?
No One by Alicia Keys – you can really scream it.

What does love feel like?
Love is overwhelming. In a good way, but it can overpower everything. You think about it all the time and days go by staring at your phone.

Always in your fridge?
Dr Pepper – I love it. I don’t drink much coffee so it’s my go to.

Most overused word?
I say LIKE all the time, it’s the Cali girl in me. And I say neat a lot.

Worst habit?
I used to bite my nails.

Item in wardrobe you want to keep forever?
I have these really soft red boxer shorts with a Dr Zeus pattern.

Biggest Phobia?
Elevators – I always take the stairs. I got trapped in one once.

Favourite website?
I don’t do online shopping really as I like to try the stuff on. So I guess Netflix now – I’m on it a lot. I’ve just got hooked on Making A Murderer.

Designer you’d wear forever?
I love Rodarte. I’ve known them since I was young and they’re so classy.

Dream dinner party guest?
David Blaine – I am OBSESSED. In his new documentary he catches a bullet in his teeth – and it’s insane. I don’t understand how he’s not dead!

The actress you’d love to work with?
My sister. We’d love to not play sisters but everyone says we look so alike – we don’t see it – so maybe it’d be hard.

Tiffany & Co. Cast Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning in First Celeb Campaign

Grace Coddington, who joined as the brand’s creative partner in April, also cast Christy Turlington and Natalie Westling.

For one of Grace Coddington’s first gigs as a creative partner of Tiffany & Co. — a position she took on in April after stepping down from her role as creative director of American Vogue — the fashion icon handpicked Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning and models Christy Turlington and Natalie Westling to star in the new “Legendary Style” campaign.

Not only did the women receive the honor of being plucked by the fashion legend herself, but they also make history as the first celebrities to star in a Tiffany campaign.

Though she’s been known to express disinterest in celebrity, Coddington told Business of Fashion that the goal in casting the ads was to “find people who are beyond the average celebrity” and who “have to have more to them,” rather than cast any old Kardashian/Jenner.

The portraits, shot by David Sims against a backdrop of the brand’s signature robins egg blue, are juxtaposed with black-and-white close-ups of the jewelry on the body instead of still-lifes, as is Tiffany tradition. Coddington notes that these small changes help give the 179-year-old jeweler an edge.

Proud to share my @tiffanyandco collaboration for the #legendarystyle campaign with creative partner @therealgracecoddington
