Despite her baby face and sweet demeanor Elle Fanning is not your average teenage girl—a fact made abundantly clear by her Interview magazine cover story. For one, the interview was conducted by Scarlett Johansson (Elle’s friend and We Bought a Zoo co-star, NBD), and the two swap stories about Paris and what it was like growing up in the Hollywood spotlight—y’know, the stuff you and your friends chat about at brunch. Also, the chat is accompanied by a photo editorial chock full of vintage looks (we’re having MAJOR Virgin Suicides flashbacks), only with a hint of edginess, thanks to the addition of swimsuit tops. If you thought those bad boys could only be worn with coverups off the beach, think again. Check out the eight ways to style a bikini top, as taught by Elle Fanning:

1. Under a fur coat.
