Dakota Fanning in Beverly Hills

Posted on August 28, 2013

Believe it or not, our issue here is with the accessorizing.


Dakota Fanning out and about in Beverly Hills, CA.

No, really.

We actually kinda dig the idea of daytime-slumming it in white clamdiggers and an over-sized t-shirt. Put on a sassy belt and do an artful half-tuck and you’ve got the start of something you could sell, with the right attitude. But those look like gardening shoes and the bag looks downright business-like. And since they’re the only real colors in the outfit, your eyes go right to them.

    *sigh.* The saddest part for me is that she’s 19 years old and those garden shoes and that business bag probably cost more than my entire wardrobe….

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Amen! I’d kill for those shoes alone.

      • MilaXX

        I have them in gold.

    • kimmeister

      The footwear I just put on to work on my vegetable garden are cuter than those. And mine cost like $4 on clearance at Target.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t hate the shoes quite as much, but just like Diana Argon, the bag is a big needle scratch. That bag just has no business being paired with such a casual look. In real life she would either not be carrying a bag at all or have a canvas bag or backpack.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “needle scratch” hee hee — haven’t heard that in a long time.

  • Imasewsure

    The right pair of kick ass sandals could have raised this up a lot. Her hair makes me twitch but it’s a look. Love the shoes but not with this outfit

  • Randy Noak

    She looks like she just got her belt back after they let her out of her 51/50 stay at the local psych ward.

  • Jacquelyn

    Her hair bothers me a lot in these pics. Stylishly slumming it is one thing, but her hair needs something! The outfit isn’t wholly bad except the bag seems out of place.

    • 3boysful

      Something? Like conditioner for a start. And a comb.

    • mlle

      A casually tousled ponytail would be a step up. This looks like she just rolled out of bed.

  • hughman

    Hermés, sweetie. The look says “slumming it”, the belt says “I could buy you.”

    • kimmeister

      But the Hermès belt buckle sets off the fluorescent bracelet so masterfully.

    • decormaven

      Truly. The belt is a prominent sign of Having It All. But why pair it with those shoes? I’m mystified.

  • neonseattle

    i like all the pieces here, but not together. yes, even the leather espadrilles.

  • From the thumbnail, I thought this was a slimmed-down Debbie Rowe. That’s not a compliment to Dakota, but Debbie might like it.

  • She looks like she’s having a bad day or she’s rebelling or something. She rolled out of bed and grabbed some clothes that were hanging over the back of the chair and the treadmill.

  • Laurie Landry

    She looks about how I feel.

  • Betsy

    Question: Are starlets (or even fully-fledged stars) NEVER allowed out of their doors without looking fully put-together and fabulous? If not, then I’m DAMNED glad I’m not one!!

    People, this is not a pole-dance. This is not an awards show. She is not selling ANYTHING. She’s just a 19-year-old, walking down a street. Granted, that street is in Beverly Hills, but B.H. is her ‘hood. So, can we PLEASE cut some slack? Sometime? Anytime? Please??

    • Levedi

      I’m 99% on board with you on this one. Except the mommy in me wants to hand her a hairbrush, not because she’s a celeb but because I’m middle aged.

  • Honestly, it reads walk of shame (or, you know, victory lap) to me.

  • rkdgal

    I actually have red slip-on crocs (don’t hate me, they wash off!) for gardening that look very much like that.

  • bellafigura1

    LOVE, except for the bag which needed bigger, boho-ier. I think she looks adorable, in yes, a walk of shame kinda way.

  • LauraAgain

    Well, if the tee shirt wasn’t so … gray … I’d like it much better. I’m fine with the shoes, but the bag is way too fussy for an afternoon of errands. Even in BH.

  • disqus_Qg6IfcD68J

    As much as I love slagging off rich people and their unfortunate style choices as the next person, I feel sorry for Dakota here. I can’t imagine being constantly followed by middle-aged men shoving cameras in my faces, at 19 years old.

  • How about accessorizing with a bra? Or a hairbrush?

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I wish I could go out in a t-shirt like that and no bra. Ah, youth!

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        Yeah, I used to love to go out bra-less in my youth. I miss that, (sigh)

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          I know. I miss being 20.

  • joything

    The shoes look comfy. Where can I get them?

  • nannypoo

    I like the shoes, hate the bag, cannot believe the hair.

  • moxie_lady

    You’d think that I’d find something to covet, even in the quotidian attire of a 19-year old millionaire movie star, but the only things I envy here (besides the bank account), are (*ahem*) perky, bouncy, and seemingly unsupported under that ratty grey t-shirt.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    God I hate those shoes, but they do look comfortable.

  • ballerinawithagun

    How did they even know it was Dakota Fanning???

  • Minus the purse, I’m fully fine with this. Carry on, young lady.

  • I want her sunnies. Clamdiggers and espadrilles are my summer staple. Leathery/rubbery espadrilles seems wrong though. Sweaty top of the foot.

  • DamH

    She looks like she is homeless.

  • shorty j

    I think I would forgive all of this if she put on some big, shiny-ass earrings.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I really like the shoes and I like them with the look, also.

  • Lesley

    i think she’s been hanging with kstew too much or idolizing an olsen, can’t decide.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Look, I get that it’s her day off, but she looks like seven miles of unpaved road. Which I know, I suck for saying it, because again, she can have a day off and look frumpy if she wants to. But then we get to judge her!

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Switching all your stuff from one purse to another is a total PITA so the structured purse with a casual outfit doesn’t bother me at all. That type of style seems more alined with her “I’m a normal teenager who just happens to be an actress.” schtick to me than having a different purse for every look. The shoes on the other hand should be burned. It’s like Gilligan does Hermes.

  • Poeta Paz

    My eyes go to her messy hair and fluorescent bracelet, both very bad.

  • EdithP

    I have an issue with her hair – brush it!

  • Darren Nesbitt

    My grandma wears this outfit when we go to Home Depot for more mulch and gravel. 🙂

  • Tracy_Flick

    The low waist and hem length of the pants are really throwing off the proportions. She looks like she has a super-long torso and super-short legs.

  • schmoollala

    Can I just ask why a lot of celebrities have their mouths open while being photographed walking down the streets/entering their car?

  • why does she have a piece of chartreuse bias tape tied around her wrist?
