Elle Fanning: Darling at Dinner in Beverly Hills

Posted Friday February 28, 2014 5:18 PM GMT

Making the most of her evening, Elle Fanning dined at Mr. Chow on Thursday night (February 27) with her dad Stephen.

The “Maleficent” actress looked far more mature than her 15 years as she headed inside while wearing a vintage Victoriana-style cream lace minidress with black leather boots.

And while she’s still in high school, Elle loves to dabble in fashion once her studies are done for the day.

She confessed, “At night, after homework, I check out what’s going on in the fashion world. I was inspired by the Chanel resort show, where the models had on different pastel wigs, and I wanted to do my take on a sixties eye, but with pink.”

“For a long time I refused to wear jeans. I liked high-waisted pants, but jeans made me feel like I wasn’t being unique. Even now, I won’t wear the skinny-jeans style, because most people wear those - they have to be baggier, boyfriend-looking, or sort of like a mom jean. I’m real funny that way.”
