Elle Fanning is 13, and that means she can cover Teen Vogue, and so she is going to. The youthful starlet will be featured on the front of the February 2012 issue, and she looks adorable as ever. She’s also very charming in the behind-the-scenes video. She doesn’t take herself too seriously — which is probably difficult to achieve when you’re famous at the age of 13 — and she’s remarkably self-posessed. My 13-year-old self would probably not know how to relate.
