Even though Elle Fanning has some big shoes to fill as Rodarte muse (Kirsten Dunst held the title in the past), the 12-year-old seems to be holding her own. Proof: Today the pint-size actress, who stars in Somewhere, debuted a short film, "The Curve of Forgotten Things" created by Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy and director/photographer Todd Cole. The short follows Elle through the empty rooms of a house, as her outfits (all from Rodarte's Spring 2011 RTW collection) change by themselves (we wish!) from room to room.

Check out the video and take a peek at all of the looks from the film below...

YELLOW FEVER: Elle looks like an intergalactic schoolgirl in a yellow skirt and button-up blouse, which is paired with wide-strapped stacked heels and sheer socks.

PRETTY IN PLAID: Blue plaid high-waisted high-waters with a matching plaid top look nerdy-cool on Elle.

TIER DROP: This grown-up ensemble gets a hint of kid-quirkiness courtesy of the white skirts off-centered slit tiers.
