Dakota Fanning In Vionnet – 2013 Americans For The Arts

Dakota Fanning In Vionnet - 2013 Americans For The Arts

Dakota Fanning attended the 2013 Americans For The Arts held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress, who has always had a penchant for blush gowns – despite the washing-out effect – selected a powder-pink sleeveless crêpe-de-chine pleated gown with a deep V-neck from Vionnet’s Spring 2014 collection.

I will say that I don’t believe this look totally washes her out on this occasion, but the harsh light isn’t helping her cause.

Dakota styled her pretty, ethereal gown with a Smythson envelope clutch, barely there makeup and a hairstyle we are all too familiar with.

Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Spring 2014

Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 2

Celebrities took to the front row to see Marc Jacobs’ last collection for Louis Vuitton this morning during Paris Fashion Week.

Sofia Coppola: The director, who often wears Louis Vuitton, kept it simple, casual yet chic, as always, wearing an LV Resort 2014 tweed jacket with black slacks while carrying her Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton tote. Never one to opt for too many trinkets, she added two cuffs here, much to my surprise.

Elle Fanning: Teal-blue sandals added a pop of colour to her white Louis Vuitton Resort 2014 embroidered ensemble.

Haley Bennett: The actress, who has worn LV a few times for her red carpet looks, selected a layered sleeveless LV black-and-teal patterned dress styled with blue glitter Louboutin sandals and a black oversized clutch.

Dakota Fanning: Now this is what we like to see: a different hairstyle from Dakota. The actress selected an LV Resort 2014 sheer lace layered frock styled with the teal-blue sandals – apparently the colour-theme of this front row – and a black monogrammed LV clutch.

Hailee Steinfeld: Seemingly not getting the teal-blue memo, the actress showed off her fresh-cut bangs wearing a cute LV black-and-white printed frock styled with knee-high socks, glitter pumps and a white clutch. The styling of her last look let her down, but it looks like she had a lot of fun putting this together.

Sofia Coppola & Louis Vuitton Celebrate The New SC Bag Launch

Sofia Coppola & Louis Vuitton Celebrate The New SC Bag Launch

Celebs gathered to celebrate the new SC bag launch for Le Bon Marche and Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week yesterday evening.

Dakota Fanning: The actress wore an LV Fall 2013 champagne-coloured slip dress with a lace hem, which she tried to prevent from looking like a nightie by adding a long brown coat to her look. It didn’t work. Louis Vuitton ‘Dramatic’ sandals and a SC for Louis Vuitton clutch.

Elle Fanning: Dakota’s younger sister had more success with her plaid LV Fall 2013 spaghetti-strap dress with an embellished hem. Beach waves and LV sandals completed her look.

Miranda Kerr: Carrying her new favourite bag, the LV ‘Capucines’ tote, the model wore a black LV dress which looks like it was returned from the ‘Mad Men’ costume department. While I do like the 60s secretary dress and the necklace, bag and pumps, I find the hairstyle ages her somewhat.

Sofia Coppola: The lady of the hour styled her all-white LV look with her SC for Louis Vuitton clutch, cuffs and tri-colour sandals. Effortless and chic as always.

Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Night Move’ Rio International Film Festival Premiere

Datoka Fanning In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Night Move’ Rio International Film Festival Premiere

After attending the ‘Night Moves’ photocall on Saturday morning, Dakota Fanning graced the red carpet for the 2013 Rio International Film Festival in Rio de Janeiro later that same evening.

With her hair swept up into a chic chignon, the young actress wore an Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture wine-coloured draped chiffon gown with a fitted bodice, a flowing skirt, and a draped detail falling from the shoulder.

Looking more grown up than I have seen her in a while, Dakota accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a gold bracelet.

This rich autumnal colour works wonders against her pale skin, especially when matched with that dark-red lip colour.

Dakota Fanning In A.L.C. – ‘Night Move’ Rio International Film Festival Photocall

Dakota Fanning In ALC - ‘Night Move’ Rio International Film Festival Photocall

Dakota Fanning attended the 2013 Rio International Film Festival photocall for her latest movie, ‘Night Move’, held at Armazem da Utopia on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro.

The actress donned a white A.L.C. ‘Petra’ ribbed dress with body-contouring panels from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection with tonal mesh cut-outs on the bodice and an A-line skirt which enhances the feminine silhouette.

Striking patent-leather Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ red pumps and a Cathy Waterman ring accessorized her look, with her familiar sleek straight centre-parted ‘do and pink lips providing the finishing touches.

The shoes should’ve really helped add some excitement to the look, but with that hairstyle everything always feels flat when it comes to Dakota.

You can buy Dakota’s A.L.C. ‘Petra’ dress from Barneys.com or in black from Shopbop.com.
