You know that feeling of nostalgia we got when we saw Hailee Steinfeld’s campaign for Miu Miu – the reminiscence of being young but wishing we were grown ups, playing dress ups in clothes too sophisticated for our years? Here it is again.

Well here it is again, almost. Because 13 year old Elle Fanning actually does pull off these Marc by Marc Jacobs outfits with an unprecedented level of maturity. Youthful, yes, but childlike? No. About to be snowballed by an avalanche of other campaigns and shoots in the not too distant future? We expect so.

Seems the parallels between E.T and Super 8 aren’t just thematic; Elle Fanning has somehow inherited Drew Barrymore’s ability to appear sweetly innocent and adultly knowing at the same time.

Also starring Lowell Tautchin, the campaign is for the Marc by Marc Jacobs fall 2011 / 2012 campaign.
