elle fanning, real-life disney princess

here’s proof.

by liza darwin

From the very first time we spotted her on the red carpet over a decade ago to the time last week we saw her on the street, we've always suspected that Elle Fanning isn't actually your average 16-year-old movie star--she's really a Disney princess.

She might play Aurora, a new version of Sleeping Beauty, in her new movie Maleficent, but turns out the actress has multiple royal Disney dopplegangers. Want proof? Click through the gallery to see just how much Jasmine, Belle, Cinderella, and more have rubbed off on Fanning's fashion sense...and fingers crossed some of their sparkly magic rubs off on us, too.
