Dakota Fanning lands the March cover of Glamour Magazine. The almost 19-year-old actress continues to try and shed her little-girl imagine, although if you’re wearing a Mickey Mouse sweater, it is rather confusing.
In the article, Dakota opens up about her Marc Jacobs “Oh Lola” perfume advertisement that was banned in the UK for being “sexually provocative”, and how Dakota thinks if you see something wrong with it – then the problem lies with you. (You can see the controversial ad here)
On fame & fashion: “It’s really fun when you’re getting dressed for something. It’s not when you’re in the rain with an umbrella and trying to carry a case of water. Yep, that’s me, alone, coming from Duane Reade. I’m not wearing a bra. Deal with it.”
Being surprised about her Marc Jacobs ad? “Yeah, I was! If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it’s also like, Why are you making it about that, you creep? I love Marc and trust him, and we just laughed about it.”
Could she ever be a fashion designer? “I don’t think so. I mean, I won’t rule it out, because then one day I’ll be like, ‘I said that in Glamour in 2013, and here I am now [with my own line].’ But when you know designers and see the work that they put into making their collection, and how much passion they have for that–I think that’s so amazing. And I don’t have the passion to design clothes. It’s nice to be able to grow up and know what you want to do…. I’m reminded of that every time I make a film.”
On her little sister, Elle: “She’s very uninhibited and will try pretty much anything. Even the way she dresses– she dresses totally for herself. She risks being made fun of…by me, which I sometimes do, because I’m an older sister! But I totally admire her and think she’s very cool.”
I like Dakota, I think she’s very talented. Her younger sister, Elle, is pretty cute as well. I thought these pictures were really pretty. I do think it’s hard to see her as a woman. I think it’s crazy that she’s still just 18… given all she’s done already, it seems like she should be 25 or something!
