Instagram Newbie: Elle Fanning posts her first selfie to her new public Instagram account on Monday Morning
Like her sister before her, Elle still finds time for her studies whenever she’s not filming her next block-buster or covering the latest Teen Vogue issue.
The young Maleficent star proudly donned her uniform shirt in the photo, showing off her blonde locks in what must have been a very early morning.
The selfie comes just two days after her 18th birthday celebration, in which she gifted herself a public Instagram account after having recently sworn off the social networking site, citing Hollywood-legend Marilyn Monroe’s mystery as her personal inspiration.

‘Can you imagine Marilyn [Monroe] on Instagram? Would she still be this figure if we knew all this information about her?’ Elle said in a recent red-carpet interview.
At her birthday party on Saturday, she gave in to the online fun by snapping a photo of herself beside a pink and gold birthday cake with the words ‘Elle 18’ em-blazed under a bow.
‘I decided to give myself a birthday present… a public Instagram..SURPRISE!’ she posted to the account that now holds over 131,000 followers.
The birthday girl appeared fresh faced and make-up free, despite the silly pose.
In 2011, older sister Dakota graduated from the same private high school that Elle now attends, after famously winning the title of Homecoming Queen during her senior year.

The busy-actress returns to classes after a very busy couple of months of press. Earlier this year, the starlet covered Vogue Australia in a stunning spread wearing Chanel. She opened up about her growing maturity and upcoming 18th birthday.
‘Everyone’s saying I’m adult now… [but] I’m not grown up, I want to be a girl forever!’ the blonde beauty joked in her interview with the Australian magazine.
Having graced the cover of Teen VOGUE three times, Elle made her VOGUE debut in couture, sporting a smokey-eye and elbow-high laced gloves on the cover. Casting her in a much different light than her usual girly style.

Testing her range again, she’ll star in Nicholas Winding’s thriller The Neon Demon, playing a wide-eyed model who’s devoured by the cut-throat world of the fashion-industry.
