Dakota Fanning wears a long black coat over her dress while attending the Proenza Schouler fashion show held during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 on Wednesday (February 12) in New York City.

The 19-year-old actress went for a much more daring look the day before while sitting in the front row at Rodarte‘s fashion show, showing her cleavage in a revealing dress.



Whoa there!
Dakota Fanning flashed some serious cleavage during the Rodarte spring 2014 show at New York Fashion Week.

The 19-year-old donned a low-cut, nude-colored dress to the presentation—complete with a knit cardigan and beaded necklace.

The sexy ensemble is a major departure for the young actress.

Fanning usually sticks to conservative (yet fashion-forward) attire, especially during the frigid temperatures in the Big Apple. But once everyone got an eyeful of Fanning’s ample décolletage, the attention went straight downward…to her shoes.

The adorable blonde rocked a pair of black-and-white mismatched high heels for the big event.


Gerardo Naranjo’s untitled English-language debut, starring Dakota Fanning, has been fully financed and starts production in late March in Nevada.
“Harry Potter” actor Frank Dillane, Jeremy Allen White (“Shameless”) and “X-Men: First Class” thesps Zoe Kravitz and Caleb Landry Jones are also starring in the film, with Naranjo (“Miss Bala”) directing from his own script. Hunter Gray and Alex Orlovsky of Verisimilitude and Chris Ramirez of Lola Pictures will produce.

Fanning will portray a roadie on a journey of self-discovery while on tour with a punk band in the 1980s.

Dakota was last seen in the final “Twilight” film. She recently wrapped “Effie Gray,” “Every Secret Thing” and “Franny.”

Side Note: The film is a co-production of Verisimilitude and Lola Pictures, which is also financing. CAA arranged the financing, and Preferred Content negotiated the deal on behalf of the financiers. Domestic distribution rights will be represented by CAA and Preferred Content.

Dakota Hates Dating
Feb, 4 Posted by Vicki

Dakota Fanning shies away from dating because she “cannot be bothered” with romance until she finds the man she plans to marry.

The 18-year-old, who found fame as a child star with her performance in 2001’s I Am Sam, reveals her parents Steven and Heather were childhood sweethearts who married when they finished college – and she wants her relationship to emulate theirs.

As a result, Fanning admits she doesn’t want to waste her time dating – she just wants to find her future husband.

She tells Glamour magazine, “I don’t really date. I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college. I’ve always thought that’s what it’s supposed to be like, and if it’s not, then I don’t want to waste my time on it. Even when I was 14, I was like, ‘I’m not gonna marry this person. What’s the point of doing it?’

“It’s not me being naive. I just know what it’s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered.”

Dakota Fanning, who has bared all in a sex scene with Boyd Holbrook in her new film ‘Very Good Girls,’ has defended going nude by calling it a part of life.

She told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival that she had never done that before and she was newly allowed to do that, ABC News reported.

“I was newly 18, so yeah, it was, it’s kind of a sensitive thing, but it’s a part of life,” she said.

The film follows Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen on their quest to lose their virginity but their friendship is tested when they fall for the same guy

London: `Twilight` actress Dakota Fanning has defended her controversial Marc Jacobs fragrance ad.

She 19-year-old actress said that those who complained about the photo used for the campaign – in which she posed with a bottle of Jacob`s Oh, Lola! perfume between her legs – were reading too much into the image, reported Digital Spy online.

“If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it`s also like, `Why are you making it about that, you creep?`” she said.

The advertisement was banned in the UK by the Advertising Standards Authority over two years ago, after it was deemed “sexually provocative” and “irresponsible”.

Four complainants added that the image of Fanning – then aged 17 – “could be seen to sexualize a child” as she “looked under the age of 16”.

“I love Marc and trust him. We just laughed about it,” Fanning added.

Dakota Fanning, who portrayed Jane of the Volturi in the Twilight Saga, and her sister Elle Fanning have now joined Twitter to raise awareness for the Dec. 15 Day of Giving.

The two have begun to develop a web campaign called GivingSisters.org which asks followers to submit photographs of themselves giving back to their local communities along with the hashtag #BGiv.

According to Dakota, she and Elle are planning to pitch in with “a day out somewhere in US, helping the homeless, give them food and clothes etc.”

You can follow them now at @DakotaFanning and @ElleFanning to participate!

The Fanning sisters received a warm welcome from at least one member of their Volturi family yesterday, Cameron Bright, who tweeted, “Hey friends – my “sis” @DakotaFanning joined Twitter. Support#TeamVolturi” and “You should go follow @ElleFanning – cause we’re practically family.”

Elle Fanning, who’s hit most of the Twilight premieres, had a little Twilight-related fun with her first day on Twitter, too, writing “I’m still #TeamEdward though………….. @dakotafanning @cameronbright #ShouldITellThisToTheVolturiSiblings????”

UPDATE: While Twitter has “verified” both accounts, according to several sources, the two accounts have now been said to be illegitimate.
