I always figured that Dakota Fanning would somehow manage to eschew adulthood entirely and instead veer off into some weird, unchartered child-person territory. Alas, not so! The “Night Moves” actress was snapped during a portrait session for the Venice International Film Festival, and here she is looking grown-up, gorgeous, and, indeed, significantly more mature than her 19 years. Let’s not talk about how Dakota is also sporting the kind of center-parted, perfectly face-framing long bob that deludes me into thinking that I, too, could pull off this haircut for Perfect Faces Only. This has proven to be strictly a delusion. I won’t let you fool me this time, LOB.

Dakota Fanning is looking super, super cute in this crop top and shimmery embroidered miniskirt combo straight outta the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2013 collection — this is one of my favorite looks of hers in a while. But I just want to call some attention to the fact that Dakota went sleeveless, belly-baring, and fancy-free at Sundance, where temperatures are maxing out at 35 degrees and most of the attendees have been photographed in Uggs and earmuffs. Props! I say this from New York City, which weather reports have currently classified as “frigid.”

It’s kind of crazy that Dakota Fanning is only 18; the girl has been around forever. The Fannings obviously don’t waste any time getting into the biz, but what I like about Dakota and her sister, Elle, is that they both seem incredibly smart and well-adjusted for the amount of fame they’ve experienced at such young ages. I definitely don’t foresee any Lohan-ing in either of their futures. (And yes, they’re both fashion wunderkinds who are lucky enough to be outfitted by some of the most revered designers out there.)

It’s a rare 18-year-old who can wear Chanel and look at once totally arresting and also completely age-appropriate, but I guess if anyone’s going to be able to pull it off, it’s Dakota. InStyle UK’s December issue features the actress as its cover star in, oh, just the most gorgeous Chanel frock ever plucked right from the Resort 2013 collection, with elaborate tonal embroidery and touches of pink, purple, and blue. This further reinforces my conviction that international versions of fashion mags get way better covers than we do. I’m just sayin’. More pics (one featuring the prettiest pair of cat ears for humans you’ll ever see), after the jump! [Celebitchy via InStyle UK]

Dress Off: Dakota Fanning Vs. Elle Fanning

Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning — they’re young, they’re talented and they’re so, so pretty. Both sisters have incredible careers and great style (and are at least three years away from the legal drinking limit). Both of them make me feel like I haven’t accomplished squat with my life. Thanks Fannings, I’m depressed now.

But! Anyway! We’ve picked some of the Fanning’s best looks, and picked our favorites. Agree or disagree with our choices? Let us know in the comments!

I was all about Hot Topic and graphic Ts when I was Elle Fanning’s age, which is plenty embarrassing enough without someone like Elle running around looking consistently on point. Her sartorial sense is impressive at any age, but the fact that she’s so well-dressed at 14 is frankly kind of mind-blowing. Yes, I would do terrible things to push my way into her closet (and, ohmygod, all the better if she shares one with Dakota), but I’d still think twice before I went for this maxi dress. The shape and silhouette are undoubtedly gorgeous, but the effect of the polka dots and vintage-y floral print together is, shall we say, A Lot Of Look. I love the ’70s Michelle Phillips vibe, and Elle’s mermaid hair and fresh-faced makeup are perfect — I think she definitely made the best of this slightly busy look, but do you love it?

American Apparel has made a pretty penny on the backs of its risque marketing campaigns, which feature barely clad “real” models in all sorts of sexy poses and situations. But the British Advertising Standards Authority (BASA) isn’t having any of it, and has warned Dov Charney’s company that they need to tone it down or face censure.

Her Best Looks: Dakota Fanning

This week, Dakota Fanning turned all of 18 years old. Remarkably, so is Courtney Stodden — just some food for thought, if you will, because age is the only thing the two have in common. Dakota’s fresh, preternatural approach to style may have fallen to the back burner since her younger sister’s debut, but I’m bringing back Dakota. This Fashion Week fixture has an easy grace and a look that’s wise beyond her years. Here are her best fashion moments…

Dakota Fanning's Cosmopolitan cover

Dakota Fanning’s Cosmopolitan cover raised some eyebrows because the “Twilight” actress is 17-years-old and we all know your hymen magically becomes open for business at midnight on your 18th birthday. Presumably, Cosmo‘s ad sales department knew this fact, which is why it sent out a sample mock-up cover to advertisers scrubbed of all the naughty stuff. The sample mock-up cover (at left) received by the NY Observer newspaper promises articles on “Spring Clothes, Hair, Nails” and how to “Feel Close After A Fight.” The actual cover (at right)? Sex! Vaginas! More sex! I guess the articled entitled “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” wasn’t deemed advertiser-friendly. I can’t imagine why. [New York Observer] Keep reading »

Is Dakota Fanning Too Young For Cosmo?

That’s the question some may ask upon discovering that 17-year-old Dakota Fanning is on the cover of the sort of raunchy women’s magazine next to headlines like “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” and “His Best Sex Ever.” The actress — who turns 18 next month — is introduced inside the mag with the headline, “Welcome To Your Cosmo Years, Dakota,” which I guess means she’s on the precipice of adding words like “manhood” to her everyday vernacular, using her thong as a hair tie during oral sex, and taking terrible sex advice? Ugh, growing up sucks. [NY Mag]
