(Getty Images)more pics » Elle Fanning for Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs is fully enamored by the Fanning sisters. After featuring a young Dakota Fanning in an ad in 2007 and following it with a suggestive Lola perfume ad in 2011, the designer has picked her younger sister Elle Fanning to star in the new fall campaign for his diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs.
The moody ad shows Elle in a printed red dress paired with patent boots and a red leather tote. She stands against a gray brick wall with the wind blowing her hair across her face.
This ad is the second one for the season that features a much buzzed-about Hollywood teen. Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld stars in Miu Miu's equally moody fall ads. When Hailee's ads were released, we questioned the appropriateness of using a teen to market a women's clothing line. But with Elle's ads for Marc by Marc, we don't have the same qualms. Elle's are more appropriate than Hailee's, since Marc by Marc is targeted at a younger audience with more affordable price points. Miu Miu on the other hand has a luxury price range and is designed for a more mature woman.
