I’m really excited about Teen Vogue’s December 2009 issue with Dakota Fanning! I haven’t seen her on many magazine covers (her last appearance in Teen Vogue was when she was twelve!) – so its great to see her grace the pages of a fashion magazine again.
Taking on her latest role as a vampire in Twilight’s New Moon – Dakota captures the sinister vampire Jane whose angelic looks are merely a distraction from her evil. She has said that her character in New Moon was a “fantastic” role, and I’m really looking forward to see how well she portrays Jane!
The 15 year-old was recently crowned as Homecoming Princess at her High School – she is also a Varsity cheerleader – which I think is pretty cool. Not only is she a young Hollywood star – but she also cheers for her High School football team on the side. In her interview with Teen Vogue, Dakota states, “I enjoy having a normal life.” In reality, she’s just your average teenager… who is also the youngest person ever to be nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award. Touche.
Yes, she is normal – with perks – and an adoring personality.
I love her photo spread for Teen Vogue – with the different prints and patterns – it carries an Old-Hollywood, vintage look. I am obsessed with the platform shoes and high-waisted ruffle skirts – very playfully, yet chic. She looks so adorable and, dare I say – grown up.
New Moon is coming out in . . . 11 days (November 20), and the media frenzy has already begun . . .
