Elle Fanning, the 16-year-old sister of actress Dakota Fanning, looked like she was skipping her teenybopper phase and leaping right into adulthood at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association dinner last night (Aug. 14). She was ultra sexy in red.

Fanning wore a structured red Vivienne Westwood strapless dress that probably would get her kicked out of her High School prom.

But she looked liked she belonged among the Hollywood sirens who attended the event. She even made bombshell Sofia Vergara look drab in her more conservative red dress.

Elle capped off her Jessica Rabbit look with her long blonde hair. She wore it straight and pulled to one side.

In the past, Elle has pretty much dressed her age in princess gowns and young teen outfits.

But it’s a sad fact that young starlets are growing up fast in Hollywood. Elle is far from alone in dressing years beyond her age.

Most of her contemporaries from Bella Thorne to Odeya Rush, who just scored a breakout role in “The Giver,” dress the same at red carpet events.

There’s no question Elle looked stunning; she was even photographed on the arm of an older man! Elle posed on the red carpet with “Twilight” hunk Robert Pattinson.

Rob didn’t seem to mind a bit. In fact, they made an interesting couple. (rumor, rumor!)

Elle, who already has a lengthy film resume as a child actress, has four pictures out this year, including Disney’s highly anticipated “Maleficent,” with Angelina Jolie.

She’s also appearing in “Low Down,” “Young Ones” and “The Boxtrolls.” Two of the three are dramas. “The Boxtrolls” is a 3D stop motion adventure-comedy.

So Elle is already starting to transition to more mature roles.
