Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Dakota Fanning joined Ashley Greene on the red carpet last night for the New York screening of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’.

The actress wore a Valentino Spring 2012 midnight-blue gown with an A-line silhouette.

Her gown with a camisole-style bodice featuring open lattice details throughout was styled with a transparent Valentino minaudière with stud hardware and a gold Graziela ring.

I only like this look from the neck down.

Her makeup is too heavy and her just-got-out-of-bed hair doesn’t work for me either.

After wowing us on the red carpet at the ‘Twilight’ LA premiere on Monday night, Dakota Fanning was in New York City yesterday evening for the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, held at Center 548.

On this occasion she wore a look from the Jason Wu Spring 2013 collection.

Her strapless pink lace dress with a peplum waist was styled with a studded black leather belt from the same collection, black Prada pumps and a Jason Wu star-embellished ‘Karlie’ box clutch.

Dakota styled her newly-dyed brunette tresses in a low ponytail, with a few tendrils framing her face.

Two nights, two colourful looks and two different hairstyles, Dakota is really stepping out of her comfort zone these days.

I did not see this coming.

I was in shock when I saw Dakota Fanning on the red carpet for ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ premiere, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California on Monday evening.

The shock was two-fold. Firstly, the hair colour. What a transformation.

We beg her every time she steps out to do something different with her never-changing hairstyle, so she went one better by changing the hair colour.

Secondly, she wearing colour… yay.

Her Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture teal gown is most definitely not in the nude, blush, beige, cream family she usually favours.

Dakota’s draped gown, with a slit plus lace embroidery on the side, is accented with a teal leather belt and styled with a gold clutch.

Rings by Graziela, J/Hadley and Rona Pfeiffer, plus a rouge lip colour, completed the look.

Do you like Dakota’s new look or was it too much change in one go?

I have to say I love it. The element of surprise has me bowled over with glee.

Dakota Fanning hit the red carpet at the The Curzon in Mayfair, London, yesterday evening for the premiere of her latest movie ‘Now Is Good’.

The young actress wore a beautiful Stella McCartney nude sequined body-hugging gown.

I love the gown, but it’s so not right for Dakota. I wish she’d opted for something younger and more whimsical; this feels too grown up for her.

Save this for the Eva Mendes and Mariah Careys of this world.

Dakota styled her look with metallic Jimmy Choo ‘Zambia’ sandals, a J/Hadley pink ring and a Lanvin envelope clutch.

The other thing I’m not loving about this look is that her hair and makeup are, as always, exactly the same.

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.

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?
