Elle Fanning’s New York Shoot Looks Good Enough To Eat
Candy and clothing will forever be two of our favorite things, and for New York magazine’s Spring 2013 Fashion Issue, artist Will Cotton played to our not-so-guilty pleasures in a spread starring Hollywood’s sweetheart Elle Fanning.
In the behind-the-scenes video, Cotton explains that they gathered licorice, petit fours, cupcakes, candy flowers, candy tiaras (so going to be our next craft project), and 750 ice cream cones for the shoot, creating a veritable Candy Land for Fanning to inhabit. In one image, the actress wears a rainbow striped Dior dress while plopped into a pile of oversized hard candies, while in another she takes a bite out of a Fendi purse covered in candy dots.
As if she hadn’t already won our hearts, The Cut reports that the 14-year-old sent Cotton a handwritten note at the end of the shoot thanking the artist for “a sweet weekend,” with the all-too-true signoff: “Desserts conquer all.” Now excuse us while we go track down some macarons.
