Fifteen-year-old Child Star Elle Fanning has been selected as the IT Girl for Miu Miu’s spring ’14 campaign. Last year the label featured fellow child star and fashionista Hailee Steinfeld in it’s advertising campaign.
In the photo series, Fanning poses for Inez and Vinoodh with a messy updo wearing a 70’s inspired print dress paired with mustard and cranberry tights and cranberry platforms.
Fanning has amassed quite a modeling portfolio for a 15 year old having all ready worked for Rodarte, J.Estina, Marc by Marc Jacobs.
But not everyone approves of children working in this industry as illustrated in this recent article by Tansy Hoskins in which she reports:
“The current campaign for fashion label Miu Miu features 15-year-old child star Elle Fanning, images which advertising-revenue dependent magazines are unlikely to reject. In 2012 Marc Jacobs mistook exploitation for verve when he deliberately flouted Council of Fashion Designers of America(CFDA) guidelines by featuring two 14-year-old girls as catwalk models. Every time a high-profile brand shuns child protection initiatives it makes abuse easier to occur outside of the spotlight.”
Elle is represented by WME theatrically, UTA commercially and her management team is Echo Lake Management.
