The 10-episode series received critical acclaim, with Elle Fanning earning a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in Television Series Musical or Comedy.

In season two, a pregnant Catherine finally takes over the Russian throne from her husband Peter III, played by Nicholas Hoult. Hulu said of the second season, “Catherine becomes both a mother to Russia and a child.”

On Saturday, Elle Fanning commanded attention in a sheer black gown as she arrived at the 2021 LACMA Art + Film Gala.

Known for her delicate and feminine red-carpet looks, the 23-year-old actress switched up her style and channeled her inner goth, wearing a Gucci gown cut from see-through sheer fabric.

She showed plenty of flesh in the revealing number that features an open back design, diamond cutouts on the sleeves and waist, a ruffled high neck, and long fabric ribbons attached to the sleeves, which she dragged along the carpet like a cape.

The sultry gown beautifully flowed into a completely see-through skirt that has a dramatic train and a risky thigh-high slit.

Underneath her black dress, the Maleficent actress wore a strapless black bra and high-waisted black briefs to protect her modesty.

Styled by Samantha McMillen, Dakota Fanning’s younger sister added shimmer to the look with diamond rings and a large purple and red sequined boutonniere on her left collarbone.

Hairstylist Jenda Alcorn pulled her tresses up into a slicked-back tight bun secured with black silk flower clips, while makeup artist Kate Synnott applied winged eyeliner and wine-colored lipstick to complete Elle’s gothic glam look.

The All the Bright Places star teetered on a pair of sky-high platform sandals, also from Gucci.

She chose the “Angel” leather pumps that boast thin ankle straps and t-straps, tiny cutouts on the closed toes, thick platforms, and about 5-inch towering heels.
