All right, Dakota! Now THIS is what we’re talking about!
Dakota Fanning covers the April/May 2012 issue of Wonderland magazine photographed by Cedric Buchet in Emporio Armani.
We bitch at her sometimes for making some rather odd style choices now and then. And while we wouldn’t suggest she doll herself up like a shopgirl in 1910 and shove a rat in her hair, there’s something so adorable here, so “can’t take your eyes off her” that we kinda wish she’d take a page from Helena Bonham Carter’s book. Try to cultivate a look a little off the beaten path of normal starlet looks, ‘koty. You can go from bland to unique with just a little effort.
We never noticed it before, but she’s really made for this sort of period look. She’s got the huge round eyes and tiny lips that Ur-Hollywood found so devastating in actresses like Mary Pickford and the Gishes.
Dakota, you’ve got money. If you had half a brain you’d option a Gish sister biopic pronto. We’re just sayin’, is all. It’s not like you ever listen to your gay uncles when they have excellent advice for you or anything.
