Never one to submit to the siren call of a transformative contouring job, Fanning joined the festival’s 70th-anniversary gala with trademark fresh skin that was finished with just a wash of peony blush and a soft lip stain.

But a standout Cannes moment is nothing if about the right hair. Woven into the simplest of braids as though it had been quickly crafted on her way to the event, her look took a winning turn with the help of one scene-stealing accessory: a slim silk ribbon in—what else?—millennial pink. Who knew a game-changing hair trick was just a bow away? – Vogue

Unlike her big sister Dakota, Elle Fanning says she has no plans of heading off to college anytime soon. She recently turned 18 and told Entertainment Tonight that she wants to focus on work instead of school — this semester, at least.

“For this year, I’m not going at the moment because I’m starting a film and I don’t think it would be fair… I wouldn’t really be there,” Elle said. “If I went, I would want to kind of have the college experience.”

She recently wrapped Ben Affleck’s new project, Live By Night, a film set in the 1920s about a police captain’s son who becomes a rum-running bootlegger.

“It’s insane because he wrote it and directed it and he’s starring in the movie…so you’re acting with the director. It’s crazy!” she explained. “I would love to direct one day, so for me, seeing that I mean, he’s thinking like a mile-a-minute about everything. It’s pretty insane. So that was really, really cool to see.”

Going to college is a huge decision, and sounds like Elle is making the right choice, for now. So, we’re pretty sure there’s no class on “how to write, direct, and star in a major motion picture” at NYU, where Dakota went.
