Look who was shooting around with a Lomography baby—the lovely Elle Fanning with her Diana Mini Wonderland!
Thirteen-year-old Elle Fanning has been catching the eyes of many not only as a promising young actress, but also as a budding fashion icon. Now, the Lomographic world has its eyes on the young star for going analogue!
Elle, who recently starred in the Steven Spielberg sci-fi movie Super8, was spotted in Paris carrying and shooting with a Diana Mini with Flash Wonderland Edition during the Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011/2012, and also while touring the beautiful city! Interestingly, aside from portraying a girl named Alice in Super8, Elle’s first lead role in a feature film was in the 2009 independent film Phoebe in Wonderland, where she starred as a young girl with Tourette syndrome who signed up for a role in her school’s Alice in Wonderland play.
Her visit to Paris was without a doubt memorable for two reasons Elle herself shared with WWD: “This is my first-ever fashion show and it’s the first time I’ve been to Paris, so I think this night will be pretty special.”
Here are some nice snapshots of Elle with her equally pretty analogue companion out and about in the French capital:
