Dakota Fanning attended the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City last night.

The young actress made an attempt – that’s all we can ask – of giving us a new hairstyle whilst wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Her ivory and Swarovski embroidered gown with a sheer yoke looks familiar, no?

That’s because Diane Kruger wore a modified version of this gown during Venice Film Festival last year.

It was stunning on Diane, but yet another gown in the nude/blush/ivory/beige/neutral family from Dakota Fanning.

Sorry, but I’m so over her sticking to this colour palette, even if the gown is Elie Saab. Doesn’t she realise that these neutral colours wash her out?

With regards to the hair, can we really call this a new hairstyle, considering all she did was pin one side of her hair?


A gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch completed her look.
