Dakota Fanning did opt for a big gown for the 2012 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this evening.

The young actress selected a Louis Vuitton lavender organza gown.

Her tulle and organza gown embroidered with floral ribbons was teamed with satin sandals and a silk lavender minaudière.

I like that she did something different with her hair, but I wish she had more height to carry this look off.

It also makes her look a bit boxy. I don’t find this flattering at all.
