Elle Fanning attended the premiere of Trumbo at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, Calif., Tuesday in a fairytale-inspired ensemble.

Elle Fanning’s ‘Trumbo’ Premiere Look

Fanning, 17, wore a romantic dress from the Gucci Spring 2016 collection for the movie premiere. The blush, floral-printed number featured dramatic embroidery of two birds on the bodice, purple and pink flowers on the straps and a tiered skirt with lace detailing. Fanning completed her look with pale pink Gucci ‘Sylvia’ sandals.

Fanning recently opened up about her personal red carpet style and how she approaches picking out looks for the photo ops.

“It’s fun to create those memories and have that, and just kind of do what you want on a red carpet ‘cause you want to feel comfortable and feel confident,” Fanning told InStyle, adding of on-trend looks, “I definitely experiment with them and I always try them even if they’re wacky, even if it’s like socks and sandals, like I’ll dive right in and I’ll go for it. In the next five years I’m definitely going to go through a lot of different kind of ranges and even if I look back on it and I’m like, ‘Oh my god! That was hideous. That was terrible!’”

“The red carpet’s always really exciting to me,” Fanning went on. “I like that feeling—it’s kind of like no other when you step out and you’re there and it’s happening. But it always goes so fast, but each one is very exiting for me, so they’re fun.”

On the Trumbo premiere red carpet earlier this week, Fanning was joined by co-stars Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, Michael Stuhlbarg and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. 

In Trumbo, Fanning plays Nikola Trumbo, the youngest daughter of screenwriter and novelist Dalton Trumbo, played by Cranston. The film follows Trumbo as he ends up blacklisted for refusing to testify about Communist influences in the motion picture industry before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947. During his blacklisted period, Trumbo won two Academy Awards and wrote blockbusters Exodus and Spartacus, as well as the romantic comedy Roman Holliday. 

Trumbo is set to hit theaters Nov. 6.
