Dakota Fanning In Gucci – 40th AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Shirley MacLaine

It looks like Dakota Fanning’s bun at the CFDA Fashion Awards was just a teaser, as the talented actress was back to sporting a familiar hairstyle on the red carpet for the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award honoring Shirley MacLaine, held at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California yesterday evening.

The actress looked beautiful wearing a Gucci Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

This coral silk georgette v-neck pleated gown thankfully isn’t within her usual nude colour palette, but some of you may argue that it’s not too far away.

Her bi-colour gown was styled with interesting black Gucci accessories, which included a leather studded belt, a suede studded clutch and strappy sandals.

You can buy Dakota’s Gucci clutch from Saks.com

    Same boring hair, but she looks amazing here.

      She does. I love the dress to the coloring down to the accessories.

    Although her hair is back on its usually style, I still really like this look. Much better than her CFDA Awards disaster.

    The hair is same old, same old but she looks divine, the colour is amazing.

    She looks gorgeous. I love the dress, the color, the accessories, the barely there makeup. So flawless and effortless.

    I love this look . Her hair is perfect for this dress , no complaint here .

  6. Alina June 8, 2012 at 13:36 #

    I think this is one of her best looks ever.

    Hair, makeup and glasses aside, I love the look on her. The gown is gorgeous.

    What an improvement! This is her signature style and it works. Remember her CDFA Proenza disaster? Exactly.

    This is fantastic from the neck down. The dress is beautiful on her and the accessories are perfect. Maybe some day she’ll learn to experiment more with her hair and makeup.

    How come an 18 year-old girl not enjoy the pleasures and fun of putting make-up on? Not that I don’t appreciate natural beauty but she looks so pale and ghost-like. It’s sad…

    • Shaina June 8, 2012 at 16:24 #

      What? She’s 18?! Here I am thinking “that deep v is a little inappropriate for a 14 year old”.
      Anyway I agree with you, it would be nice to see more of an effort in the beauty department from her.

      i think she looks beautiful au naturel. her pale creamy complexion makes her glow. simply gorgeous

    Does anyone know who makes the glasses she’s wearing here?

  12. Mol June 8, 2012 at 16:37 #

    This has got to be the best I’ve ever seen her, I can’t complain about the hair this time as everything seems effortless and pretty. Very well executed I think.

  13. Jen June 8, 2012 at 16:41 #

    Yay, a color! And a color she looks great in — very pretty! The hair is the same as always, but it also kind of works with the laid-back ’70s vibe of the whole outfit. And LOVE the glasses!

  14. Nat June 8, 2012 at 18:13 #

    Nothing much to add, I agree with the previous commentators: even if she’s sporting the old same hairstyle, she looks amazing here. The gown is so pretty and suits her well without feeling too dejavu.

  15. kane June 8, 2012 at 18:20 #

    The, let’s say, “understated” hair feels like part of the look–works for me in here!

  16. vicky June 8, 2012 at 18:44 #

    I love this, it’s the best she’s looked in ages.

  17. EmmaWoodhouse June 8, 2012 at 19:48 #

    I wish that the neckline was not so revealing. I don’t think it’s appropriate. If it were a more modest v-neck or a scoop-neck, I would really like this looks and say it was one of her best ever! The color is nice on her, I like the black touches, and her hair has a bit more body than usual. The hair actually works for me here.

    I find the accessories too heavy for this light gown.

  19. Dhppy June 9, 2012 at 00:43 #

    This is the best she’s looked in some time. The color is stunning on her skin! Her makeup looks wonderful, and the hair down works well. Lovely.

  20. Parvati June 9, 2012 at 02:27 #

    She hasn’t done anything different here, but I don’t mind, because she looks pretty and this colour is great!

  21. Dan Oliver June 9, 2012 at 15:22 #

    Love this look on her she looks fresh even if she is very pale but at least she’s comfortable in her own skin not to be orange like so many in hollywood

  22. Jess2 July 8, 2012 at 06:49 #

    She looks lovely, one of her better looks!
