Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Dakota Fanning graced the red carpet for the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held on Saturday at the Washington Hilton.

Despite an all-too-familiar hairdo, the actress was much improved, wearing a Prada gown which was surprisingly not nude, cream, beige or clutch.

The actress wore a gorgeous embellished baby-blue gown with long sleeves, a plunging neckline and a keyhole detail which was embellished with silver floral embroidery.

She complemented her look with a silver Prada metallic box clutch, a selection of silver Cartier bangles and silver bow-accented Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Beauty and hair wise, it was business as usual for Datoka.

Dakota Fanning attended the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City last night.

The young actress made an attempt – that’s all we can ask – of giving us a new hairstyle whilst wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Her ivory and Swarovski embroidered gown with a sheer yoke looks familiar, no?

That’s because Diane Kruger wore a modified version of this gown during Venice Film Festival last year.

It was stunning on Diane, but yet another gown in the nude/blush/ivory/beige/neutral family from Dakota Fanning.

Sorry, but I’m so over her sticking to this colour palette, even if the gown is Elie Saab. Doesn’t she realise that these neutral colours wash her out?

With regards to the hair, can we really call this a new hairstyle, considering all she did was pin one side of her hair?

*Sighs*

A gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch completed her look.

Dakota Fanning hit the red carpet for the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival Vanity Fair Party in New York City to celebrate the opening of the festival which runs from April 18 through to April 29.

The young actress wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her vibrant fuchsia pink frock is pretty, fun and youthful, but her tan Lanvin pumps are a tad conservative for the look.

Also I don’t get what’s going on north of her eyebrows. What is that thing on her head?

We asked her to do something new with her hair, not her head.

A gold clutch and copper eyeshadow completed her look.

Whilst I like this look, I’m baffled by the shoe choice and the headband, plus I think I miss the belt.

Dakota Fanning joined Emily Blunt at the Crown in New York City last night, for the private dinner party honouring Mr Elie Saab.

The young actress also opted of a very sophisticated Elie Saab look.

Her Pre-Fall 2012 peplum dress with a lace panel was teamed with interesting accessories.

Prada jewel-toe ‘Flame’ sandals and a Prada red poppy clutch completed the look.

One day Dakota is going to wear her hair in a ponytail or an updo and it will become breaking news…stay tuned…but please don’t hold your breath.

Dakota Fanning stepped out at the 2012 GLAAD Media Awards, which were held on Saturday night in New York City.

The young star wore a vintage Halston cream wrap v-neck halter dress with gold beaded embroidery.

Dakota teamed her stylish dress with Fred Leighton jewels, a Ferragamo gold box clutch and Manolo Blahnik metallic-gold criss-cross sandals.

Her signature simple, straight hairstyle and natural looking makeup completed the look.

Whilst her dress was refreshing and mature, the hair and makeup are all too familiar.

I would love her to shake things up just once.
