Dakota Fanning had not one, but two dapper dates in New York City on Monday night for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards.

Walking the red carpet alongside Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Dakota wore a long-sleeved kimono-inspired dress from the brand’s Fall 2012 collection.

The brocade origami-esque mini is an edgy new look for the young actress.

However, more importantly, Dakota has finally heard our pleas, as she wore her hair pulled back on the red carpet.

Thank goodness – centre-parted straight locks would have brought down the entire look, and possibly driven me over the edge.

Heavy Proenza Schoulder Resort 2013 black wedges and a metallic clutch accessorize the look.

What do you think of the new hairdo?
