Stephen attended the New York screening of “Somewhere” at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on December 12, 2010. He looked dashing as always in a suit from Tom Ford while co-star Elle Fanning looked stunning in a dress by Rodarte. I have added 36 images from the event to the gallery.

“I have one problem with Elle,” admitted Stephen Dorff of his “Somewhere” co-star, 12-year-old burgeoning “it” girl Elle Fanning.
“She’s nearly perfect, but she’s just growing too tall. I’m not the tallest guy, and she’s like 6 feet tall in heels, so it feels like the time I went out with a supermodel (Milla Jovovich) years ago,” said Dorff, who was wearing Tom Ford. “I feel like Mini-Me sometimes on the red carpet with her.”
Of course, at last night’s screening of Sofia Coppola’s film at the Tribeca Grand, Fanning’s 5-inch Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte wedges probably didn’t help her cause with Dorff.
“I was asking Elle, ‘How are you losing your baby teeth now? You’re already so tall?‘” Dorff continued. “She said, ‘I know, but I can’t slow down!’”
Fanning (whose sister, Dakota, 16, is another young starlet) is taking it in stride. While others might get a big head about joining the ranks of Coppola’s other leading ladies like Scarlett Johansson or Kirsten Dunst (who was at the screening), Fanning’s charming youthfulness is winning her rave reviews across the board.
Like her sister before her, the fashion world has embraced the younger Fanning; her ensemble for the screening was custom-created by Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy. “They made this for me, which was just incredible!” raved Fanning of her gold minidress.
