Fanning sisters inspire Galliano line

Elle and Dakota Fanning inspired Bill Gaytten's latest resort collection for John Galliano, it has been reported.

Fashion website WWD writes that the creative director of the label openly credited the stylish actress sisters for influencing the designs of the 2013 Resort offering and it has been noted by industry insiders that a "pale and blonde model" who featured in the catwalk presentation bore a striking resemblance to the teenage stars.

The famous siblings have been earning style kudos with their sophisticated and brave - but age-appropriate - red carpet choices.

Gaytten's take on Galliano Resort fashion for next year is a contemporary mix of drop-waist frocks, vertical-stripe separates and casual-cool shirt dresses, set against a creamy pastel, white, and black palette.

While some fashion commentators seem baffled by the British high fashion designer's admission, it has been noted that the garments are a perfect fit for the fresh, cool image of the two Hollywood starlets.

"As much as we (and the fashion industry as a whole) love the Fannings, they're not who we'd expect a designer to specify as his or her inspiration," writes. "That being said, we can definitely see the sisters Fanning in these clothes and we can also see people buying them."
