Elle Fanning Goes Dark in Sheer Cutout Gown and Sky-High Heels at LACMA Art + Film Gala

Elle Fanning stunned in a daring new look for the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles.

The “Neon Demon” star stepped out in an edgy ensemble that was a far cry from her usual feminine style. The actress posed in a long-sleeved gown crafted from sheer black fabric, featuring front and sleeve cutouts, thigh-high slits and a flowing train. It also included a sharp backless cutout, adding to the look’s sleekness. The daring piece was layered over black briefs and a straplesss bralette. Fanning accessorized with a cluster of black silk flowers in her hair, as well as diamond rings and a large sequined red flower pin.

When it came to shoes, Fanning. The “All The Bright Places” actress continued her slick streak with a pair of black leather platform pumps. The heels included thin slingback and T-straps, as well as a close-toed silhouette with small front cutouts. Their sharpest statement came from thick platform soles and soaring heels that totaled at least 5 inches in height, creating a surprisingly sultry moment for Fanning.
