Our older readers will remember Dakota Fanning’s impressive performance in I am Sam, and our younger ones will know her as a Watcher in the action flick Push (or a Volturi in The Twilight Saga or Cherrie Currie in The Runaways, depends on what movies you like).
Besides being a good actress, Dakota Fanning is also turning heads in the style department. Both her streets style as well as effortlessly chic get-ups on the red carpet is putting her on the list of fashionable “it” girls.
Elle Fanning, albeit with a slightly different wardrobe style, is also on the sartorial list. The younger fanning has starred in Coppola’s Somewhere and Disney’s Maleficient, and might just be the more fashionable of the two, as Dakota .
If you’re into a sweeter, vintage or even whimsical look, take a peek at Elle’s quirky sense of style. Fans of a darker colour palette and who appreciate a more wearable wardrobe (because let’s face it, most times we will never be able to pull off what these celebs wear) will like Dakota casual outfits.
Let’s see how different, but equally stylish, they can be:
Prints and cropped tops come out to play in the summer heat — even for Dakota, who seems to really like her share of darker hues. Elle has a vintage-esque look; check out the oval sunglasses and 70s denim halter.
Girl, do you even layer?
Layering is fashion’s top formula; know how to layer and your drab wardrobe will look amazing. Elle is your go-to guide when you’re trying to figure out how to mix and match colours, be it cotton candy blues and pinks or a bright moss green. Dakota’s city girl vibe comes through here, and we love her all-black ensemble which she completed with a red lip.
On the red carpet and events…
Both Elle and Dakota have made bold choices on red carpets (I mean, look at Dakota’s sparkly blue Miu Miu number and Elle’s eclectic Marc Jacobs dress!) though we’d say Elle tends to dress in florals and funky designs. Dakota, on the other hand, opts for sleeker silhouettes.
