Dakota Fanning covers the March 2013 issue of Glamour magazine photographed by Ellen von Unwerth and styled by Anne Christensen.
On what her little sister Elle has taught her: “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.”
On if she’s having fun with the “fashion icon moment” she and sister Elle are having now: “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.”
On if she was surprised when her Marc Jacobs perfume ad was banned in the U.K. in 2011 for being “sexually provocative.” [In the ad Fanning sits on the floor with a large perfume bottle between her legs.]: “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.”

Y’know, if this was anyone else, we’d say it was a bit Hollywood-standard, but she so needs something bright and colorful layered over her that it really works for her. She looks great. “Hollywood glamour” is about as done as a style concept can get, but sometimes, a gal really just needs to slap on the war paint, blow out the hair, and wear something shimmery.
