Dakota Fanning covers the March issue of Glamour Magazine, talks about her Marc Jacobs controversy!

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!

Dakota Fanning goes Pink!

 

After debuting dip-dyed ends last week, Dakota Fanning took her new look to lunch in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

“You can’t worry about what other people think,” the 17-year-old NYU freshman recently told Elle UK. “Especially if you’re a known person, or sometimes you won’t be able to get out of bed.”

Dakota Fanning’s gorgeous Elle cover!

Dakota Fanning has landed the February 2012 cover of Elle UK, and she looks absolutely gorgeous!

On her youthful age of 17-years-old:
“I feel like I’ve lived a long time, but then I realize, ‘Oh, I’m actually only 17.’ I don’t think there should be an age limit on an interest, do you know what I mean?”

On not wanting attention outside of her acting:
“I just want to be an actress. I don’t really do anything attention-grabbing. Famous just sounds so pretentious. Who am I to call myself that word?”

On not letting talk about her physical appearance affect her:
“People are always talking about this person who looks great and that person who doesn’t. It’s there, if you let it in. I let it in to an extent. I just don’t let it affect the choices I make.”

On her younger sister Elle:
“She is incredibly free-spirited and totally wears her heart on her sleeve, you know exactly what she is thinking by taking one look at her. She’s just incredibly… I don’t know, I wish I could be more like her sometimes.”

On not comparing herself with her sister:
“We see ourselves as to completely different entities. I mean, we don’t even look alike.”
