Young actresses are a hot product these days. They are taking over the fashion world and subsidizing models on the covers, in the editorials and now also in the campaigns. A 20 – year old Harry Potter alum Emma Watson is a face of Lancome, Blake Lively has become an ambassador to Chanel’s Mademoiselle bags collection and Keira Knightley has yet again reprised her role as Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume icon.

Though now when you think about it, it seems that being 20 and over is too much. In the recent years some of the most exciting roles were reprised by teenaged girls. 13, 15 – year – old are the new hot names in Hollywood

Let’s just look at Elle Fanning. The younger sister to Dakota has started to make her own name in the show business. After an engaging role in “Somewhere”, a film by Sofia Coppola, a 13-year-old actress has progressed to “Super 8” and now she stars in another Coppola production, only this time Coppola Senior – “Twixt”.

A 15-year-old Hailee Steinfeld got nominated this year for an Oscar for her amazing role as Mattie Ross in Cohen bothers’ “True Grit”. She was so good, I thought she deserved an award! She’s already a Miu Miu face and will star in a new “Romeo and Juliet” production.

Chloe Moretz is a 15-year-old actress, who’s got great reviews for her two 2010 movies. She was a Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass (where she literally kicked ass) and a little vampire in a dark “Let Me In” movie. We’ll be able to see her in several movies in the next year or so and I’m sure we’ll hear more about Chloe soon.

What all those actresses have in common is that first of all they are young, they’ve already succeeded massively in the film world and I’m sure they are going to do even more. They are all gracing covers of the new "Love" magazine for Fall/Winter 2011_2012 issue. They all look beautiful, have such an amazing sense of style but they still have this sense of innocence about them. I really hope they would be able to keep it for a long time!
