Elle Fanning thrilled to don McQueen

Elle Fanning has gushed about the fantastic Alexander McQueen dresses she sported for the Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

The 14-year-old American actress features in Vanity Fair's 2013 Hollywood Issue alongside stars including Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Kerry Washington and Tom Hanks.

Famed fashion photographer Bruce Weber shot the stars and in a behind-the-scenes video on the publication's website Elle explained more about the theme of her editorial spread.

"I got to shoot with my sister [actress Dakota Fanning]. I was excited about what we got to wear, we had these huge Alexander McQueen dresses and these really big jewelled chokers and Dakota had a branch in her hair with birds on it," Elle gushed. "And there we were lying on this couch in these huge hooped skirts. It was amazing and so cool."

Actress Kerry Washington described her shoot with Bruce, for which she used her on screen talents to portray a glamorous character from the past.

"There is a jazz singer motif going on which I love, I'm really into that," Kerry explained. "I play a very lucky actress who is dressed in a Gucci gown."

Legendary screen icon Tom Hanks also commented on his styling for the legendary edition of the magazine.

"They put me in a fabulous, and I mean fabulous, double breasted wool suit that made me instantly wish it was Fall... and in 1952," Tom joked. "[Did I imagine it would suit a Pairs scene?] Well, I would take New York, but Paris would be good too."
