Red carpet beauty!

Elle Fanning seems to be taking her role as a young Sleeping Beauty (aka Princess Aurora) in Maleficent to heart. The blonde actress, 16, channeled the iconic cartoon Disney princess for the Los Angeles premiere on May 28.

The powder blue Elie Saab Couture gown featured dropped shoulders and a belted waist. The full-length skirt was slightly transparent allowing the embroidered petals to stand out.

"It's really intense," Fanning told Us Weekly of the premiere on the red carpet. "I probably have never experienced anything like this. I'm still sweating and people are screaming."

The younger sister to Dakota Fanning has been dressing in theme for her worldwide promotional appearances for the live-action fairy tale fantasy movie. In London on May 7, Fanning wore another princess style gown with the yellow Georges Hobeika Couture gown. Then on May 9 for a photocall in London, she went more casual in a white two-piece ensemble with a ruffled skirt.
