There's a lot to be excited about. As she's grown seven inches in the past two years (at 5'6", she beats her 17-year-old sister, Dakota, by roughly two inches), her star is rising in more ways than one.

Fanning has been acting for years, but a stirring turn in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere last spring marked her arrival as a leading lady on film and the red carpet. The young actress/ballerina's willowy figure, elfin features, and innate sense of style have attracted everyone from Rodarte's notoriously discriminating Laura and Kate Mulleavy to Marc Jacobs — in whose ads the elder Fanning frequently stars.
