Kristen Stewart and company weren’t the only ones turning heads at the glam-fest that was Los Angeles’s Twilight: Eclipse premiere in June. That’s where we first started to take notice of the tiny person who accompanied Dakota Fanning — her younger sister, Elle! HOLD UP. This girl is 12? No stranger to the big screen herself (she’s been in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and is cast in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming flick, Somewhere), Elle knows how to melt hearts on a red carpet by dressing in pretty party dresses and funky tops. Let’s take a closer look.

Last March, she wore a satin dress to the Beverly Hills premiere of Phoebe in Wonderland. She kept the look simple and sweet with little black Mary-Janes. We can see that her style got less little-girlish later that year, when she attended the The Twilight Saga: New Moon premiere in a black bubble-hemmed dress and electric blue tights. She’s playing with her style, as everyone should, and she totally nails this funkier look. When she attended this year’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse premiere in June, she’d gotten much more sophisticated — we love how she didn’t try to upstage any of the stars by wearing a fancy-schmancy dress, but the lace top is so cool and feminine, and the black boots punk it up a little bit.

Elle, we’re watching you with our style eyes! We bet we’ll being seeing much more of her sweet style for years to come. And there has to be a Teen Vogue cover in her future. We’re betting on it.
