Style Icon Of The Month: Dakota Fanning


Since the age of five, Dakota Fanning has been taking Hollywood by storm, wowing critics with her performances in films like I Am Sam and The Secret Life of Bees, but it's not just her stellar acting ability that made industry insiders turn their heads. Dakota's had a daring fashion sense ever since she arrived on the scene, and Marc Jacobs handpicked her to star in his ad campaign when she was just twelve years old. With an eye for daring details, Dakota can be seen sporting jean shorts, Doc Martens, and lose tanks running to and from school and her L.A. sets. But she steps it up a notch on the red carpet, choosing simple accessories and bold-hued minis with exaggerated accents when hitting Tinsletown fĂȘtes. To achieve Dakota's style at home, pair an electric-colored mini with a streamlined tee and throw on your favorite pair of patterned platforms—the mix of laid-back wardrobe staples coupled with eclectic extras is what keeps Dakota's look fresh and age-appropriate.



Pulling off thick, black mod eyeliner can be challenging for the fair-skinned, but Dakota Fanning shows us that the key is lining only on top, while keeping the rest of the eye—and face—subdued. The star of The Runaways sports some serious rock 'n' roll raccoon eyes in the film, but her preferred red carpet look is a little more elegant and unaffected. A felt-tipped liquid eyeliner pen will help you keep a cleaner line than the paintbrush variety, and a tube-technology mascara like Blinc ensures your lashes last. Accentuate those assets with a brightening shampoo by John Frieda and sheer mineral powder makeup by Dior that lets freckles poke
through. Finish it off with a mauve blush, and you've got a look that's youthful and bright-eyed.
