Looking for your next leading lady of legendary style? Look no further. Twenty-one-year-old actress Elle Fanning epitomized the visage of royalty long before her first portrayal of Princess Aurora in 2014's Maleficent, but when it comes to style—both on and off of the red carpet—2019 was the year this young Hollywood star truly stole the crown.

From her off-duty but on-trend street style outfits to her jaw-dropping red carpet looks as a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival, Fanning has truly come into her own. In 2018, longtime stylist Samantha McMillen told The Hollywood Reporter that Fanning was a "fashion unicorn," explaining, "I think of her as a mythical creature. She just moves in such a graceful way and there’s really—all due respect to everyone out there—there’s just no one like her." We couldn't agree more.

Whether you think of Elle Fanning as a Disney princess incarnate, a fashion unicorn, or the reigning queen of young Hollywood, we can all agree that no matter what she's wearing, Fanning looks like she is always having a ball. Keep scrolling for 28 of her best looks of 2019, including our favorite photo in which she is playing air guitar with director Alejandro González Iñárritu while wearing a gorgeous Reem Acra gown. Trust us; this playful style roundup will leave you smiling from ear to ear.
