Elle Fanning: I love princess style

Elle Fanning has always related to Sleeping Beauty's Princess Aurora because they both have blonde hair.

The young starlet is currently starring in Disney's Maleficent, alongside Angelina Jolie and Sam Riley. The film is set to hit cinema screens later this month and tells the story of Sleeping Beauty from villainous Maleficent's point of view.

"I was [a little girl who grew up on Disney]. Especially Sleeping Beauty!" Elle gushed to Cover Media.

"She was my favourite always, I felt like I related to her the most, you know each princess has different colour hair, different dress. She had blonde hair and the pink dress and that was what I related to the most."

Elle, 16, kept up the princess theme when she attended a special Maleficent event held in London last night, in support of the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Stepping on to the blue carpet at the capital's prestigious Kensington Palace, Elle looked like she had just walked out of a fairytale in a Georges Hobeika gown and Christian Louboutin shoes.

"It's very princessey, and it has pockets which is nice," she laughed about why she had chosen the dress.

"I think so," she said when quizzed on whether she thought pockets were a necessity for an evening dress. "It's also really cool on a ball gown!"

The blonde star wore her hair up and accessorised it with a garland of flowers.

Angelina also stunned crowds at the event in a floor length black beaded Atelier Versace gown. The open back showed off her numerous tattoos, and her brunette hair was swept off of her face. Her make-up was kept minimal, and she looked radiant as she posed next to her fiancé Brad Pit for photographers.
