Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst celebrate Rodarte

Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst attended an exclusive dinner for Rodarte last night.

Both actresses are loyal fans of the luxury fashion brand with Elle most recently wearing one of their designs at the Critics' Choice Awards. The 13-year-old was also spotted gracing the front row at the label's spring/summer 2012 New York Fashion Week show.

Last night's glamorous dinner was organised by the two founders of the brand, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy and held at legendary Hollywood A-List hangout Chateau Marmont.

Both Elle and Kirsten looked stunning in Rodarte demi-couture creations. Elle looked pretty in a linen and silk drop-waist peasant dress which included an interesting colour palette of yellow, blue and cream.

Kristen dazzled in a bright yellow blazer with a white buttoned up shirt. She teamed the look with patterned yellow trousers and peep-toe shoes.

The actress took along her mother Inez to the candle-lit meal, while Elle no doubt spent time catching up with director Sofia Coppola at the event.

The Oscar winning filmmaker directed the teen star in Somewhere, which coincidentally was set at the exclusive hotel.

The Mulleavy sisters certainly had a lot to toast to.

Their collection of Italian Renaissance-inspired gowns are currently on display at the L.A. County Museum of Art as part of the Fra Angelico Collection.

It has also been revealed that the duo will be designing the costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic's upcoming production of Don Giovanni.
