Elle Fanning wears Valentino Fall 2010 Couture to the 2011 Critic’s Choice Movie Awards.

While Eva Mendes wore Valentino Fall 2009 Couture to the 2011 Critic’s Choice Movie Awards, Elle Fanning wore a dress from the label’s Fall 2010 Couture collection. This wasn’t one of my favorite Valentino collections, but I do believe the dresses are perfect, and age appropriate for a young actress like Elle. What I’m decidedly not a fan of though, are the slicked down, greasy ponytails the models wore to walk the runway.

I know I recently said it’s almost impossible to go wrong with a head-to-toe runway look, but I didn’t necessarily mean the runway hairstyles, too. And if there ever was a case for an actress to skip out on a runway hairstyle, this was it. Elle’s gelled down pony, is an almost exact replica of the model’s hairstyle, and it’s distracting enough to practically ruin Elle’s look.

If she wanted a pony, I think she should have gone with a high one, or better yet, Elle could have stuck with her usual go to hairstyle, of wearing her long locks all down.
