This is a very safe look, but for good reason — it's classic. The dress is simple in nature, but the texture of it adds interest that you wouldn't get from a flatter fabric. Nude pumps are always a good, leg-lengthening look with a little black dress. I would love to see Ellie with a more glamorous, adult hairstyle. Her bangs are cute and so is she, but parted down the middle they look a little cheesy, like your cousin from New Jersey.
