Dakota Fanning attended the 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Monday (November 3) in New York City, where she presented Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez with the 2014 ‘Designer of the Year’ ACE Award.
Going for a whole new look, which sadly didn’t include cutting, colouring or even putting up her hair into a simple ponytail, the actress wore a Proenza Schouler cobalt and metal crochet dress revealing a black bralet and panties, which she styled with a black and white fringed Proenza Schouler clutch, plus Proenza Schouler navy and black leather sandals, all of which hail from the Spring 2015 collection.
I’m so used to seeing Dakota in a succession of samey dresses that I almost don’t know what to make of this.
It’s a bold approach to shaking up one’s style, even if it is for one night only, but is it a risk which paid off?
To some degree I would say yes. The only thing really throwing me off is her pose. I wish she’d thrown back her shoulders and really owned this look.
