Elle Fanning's Stylist Samantha McMillen Calls Her a Fashionable "Unicorn"
"I think of her as a mythical creature. She just moves in such a graceful way and there’s really — all due respect to everyone out there — there’s just no one like her," McMillen told THR.
For actress Elle Fanning, fashion is much more than wearing designer gowns to red carpets around the world — it’s a way for her to express who she really is.
“Fashion is such a creative outlet for me, it always has been,” she told The Hollywood Reporter for its 2018 Power Stylist issue. “I definitely was one of those kids at school that kind of put on some crazy outfits. I was made fun [of] for it, but it made me feel empowered.”
Fanning’s stylist Samantha McMillen tells THR that working with the actress is a magical experience, calling her a “unicorn” when it comes to fashion.
“I think of her as a mythical creature. She just moves in such a graceful way and there’s really — all due respect to everyone out there — there’s just no one like her,” she told THR. “She’s a unicorn. She doesn’t want to be like anyone else and I just try to offer those options that I feel like are her, knowing her so well.”
What makes the fashion choices that Fanning wears so special is the energy she brings to the look. Talking about their all-time favorite looks she’s worn, McMillen said, “They come alive when she is on the red carpet and she makes it even more than it was originally.”
