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.”

Trend: ’60s-Inspired Cat-Eyes

Pumped-up fringe and a generous coating of black eyeliner made peepers pop at shows like Louis Vuitton (shown here), Jonathan Saunders, and Dolce & Gabbana.

Trend: Red Lipstick

Christian Dior’s orange-red pucker (shown here) is a spring standby. But, as designers Donna Karan and Anthony Vaccarello demonstrated, brownish and purplish reds are fair game too.

Trend: Bangs

Faux blunt-bangs stole the spotlight at Hermès (shown here) and John Galliano; at Miu Miu, models’ own strands were molded and pinned over the forehead for a similar appearance.

Trend: Silvery Eyes

Etro’s brow-high dusting (shown here), Gianfranco Ferré’s circular shape, and Phillip Lim’s defined creases are proof that—no matter how you wear it—silver eye shadow is still trendy for spring.

Amanda Seyfried told she needs to do Botox!

Can you believe that!? She’s stunning!

Amanda Seyfried is on the April cover of Elle Magazine, and in and interview with the magazine, she opens up about her breakup from boyfriend Dominic Cooper (the couple dated for a year after they starred together in ‘Mamma Mia!’), her current love life, her best on-screen kisses, and being inspired by Meryl Streep.

On being told she needed to get botox: “I was like, Damn you! But we’re in Hollywood. I’m on a huge screen. With these new digital cameras, you can see the peach fuzz on my face.”

On her best on-screen kisses: “I can’t lie. It didn’t suck making out with Channing [Tatum] and Justin [Timberlake]. “

On who she would like to be paired up with next: “I’d really love to make out with Michael Fassbender. Put me in a movie with that guy. I’m serious. Wow.”

On falling in love on set: “[It is] one of the easiest things in the world. You’re both open. You’re put in a situation where you have to make out with each other. It’s easy for things to get carried away.”

On how she thought her recent ex Dominic Cooper was breaking up with his longtime girlfriend to be with her: “I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren’t really as involved as I thought. So I got my heart broken pretty hard.”

On eventually getting back together with Cooper: “…and then it took a long time for us to break up again. After that, it’s really hard to open myself up to a new person. Really hard.”

On her rumored romance with Ryan Phillippe: “Um, yeah. I’ve been ‘seen’ with him.”

On Alexander Skarsgård: “We dated. He’s superfunny, but I was too involved with Dom.”

On being inspired by Meryl Streep’s famously down-to-earth attitude: “Meryl, she makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.”
