Dakota Fanning in Miu Miu in New York City

Posted on August 06, 2014

Okay, so this was almost certainly a contractually obligated outfit and the photographers were almost certainly tipped off as to where she’d be – and please accept our apologies now for the shrieking that is about to follow, but…

Let’s all agree to make Starbuck’s runs in thousands of dollars worth of clothing, darlings. Let’s make the world a more beautiful place together. Do it for Dakota.

But unlike Dakota, let’s all agree to brush our hair before heading out.

    LOVE the shoes.

    • SugarSnap108

      Those shoes are giving me palpitations.

      • Thomas

        Only $872! You should buy 3 pairs! Haha

  • TM

    Ugh, I would wear every single piece of that exactly that way every single day if I could.

  • ♠♥zee♣♦

    Cute but it’s a bit tooooooooo on point. Especially those shoes. It’s cute though.

    • kimmeister

      Yes, she’s like Pale Barbie.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    That’s another empty bag isn’t it? At least she’s carrying it in the way that a real person would carry a bag though. Ms Swift – please take note.

    She appears to have swiped Joe’s frappuccino too. Poor Joe.

    • BayTampaBay

      I don’t get the empty bag trend…..could someone please “splain it”, very slowly, for me? Pretty Please!!!!!

      • Aurora Meyer

        Rich and famous people got reasons to carry expensive purses, but not always stuff to put in them, I’m guessing. Sometimes you might have a deal with a fashion house to carry their bags around. Or maybe you feel the need to pair your expensive outfits with big fancy bags. I’m no expert in celebrity purse code though.

      • Constant Reader

        My take on it is that it’s proof she’s not out actually doing anything and it’s all staged. Joe, her handler, picked up the frappuccino and put it in her hands moments before the shot was taken, then she got back into the waiting SUV and went home. The bag is empty because it’s a prop.

  • LipstickForPigs

    Agree on all counts, in fact when I get dressed in my sassy Target clearance rack best I will simper “For Dakota…” And then I’ll put on a better bra.

    • I don’t think she’s wearing one at all, unless cups are now square.

      • Boulderista

        I think she’s wearing a strapless bra that slid down almost to her waist and pulled the girls along for a ride. (Can’t believe I just spent several moments staring at Dakota’s boobs.

        • LipstickForPigs

          I would expect nothing less from a poster named Boulderista. 😀

        • BayTampaBay

          Am I the only person who owns and wears a racer-back bra with these type of shirts.

          • Constant Reader

            I have bras with convertible straps that are handy for tops just like this.

          • Rebekah B

            No, you’re not alone, and I wonder the same.

  • tpalgal

    Absolutely adorable outfit, head to toe, but a better bra would be so much nicer. Amirite?

  • kim bunchalastnames

    o. LOVE.

  • Boulderista

    Adorable! But wish she’d worn a more supportive bra and the handlers/stylists would at least shove some crumpled up paper in the empty handbag so it would have some shape.

  • Ellen R.

    Why does her coffee cup say Joe? Is Joe her assistant? Or boyfriend, let’s start rumors.

    • Thomas

      She probably doesn’t want people to know who she is, or her assistant got it for her like you said.

      • Imasewsure

        And that is why she dressed in $2000 worth of clothes and dragged the Paps to Starbucks….. “no one will recognize me here… I’ll totally blend in as Joe.” I like the earlier theory that she just walked off with poor Joe’s $4 (600 calorie) drink

      • cocohall

        I have several friends who have Starbuck names that they use because their own names are nearly always misspelled and it just seems easier to say “Sue” rather than deal with spelling S-R-I-P-R-Y-A. And then listen to the barista mangle the misspelling of your name when they announce your double soy latte is ready. “Dakota” is still a lot of name for a coffee cup. Whether you are famous or not.

    • Violentcello

      Well, it is a cuppa joe.

      I’m sorry, I’ll leave now.

  • KT

    Extremely cute. Suits her perfectly. That skirt is having quite a day, isn’t it?

  • Dany

    Meanwhile Taylor Swift is hissing in the corner with her army of cats ready to strike…

    • alyce1213

      And Reese is seething cross country that Dakota’s sleeveless blouse and skirt and shoes are so much more chic than hers.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    I aggressively dislike that straw yellow shade of blonde the Fanning sisters seem to favour….

    • Thomas

      I think it looks better on Dakota though. I think it looks atrocious on Elle. It just washes her out and her roots are always showing.

    • smallgirlsaretrouble

      Agreed – that was where my eyes went first in top photo (and it wasn’t good)

  • Janet B

    So cute, except for her hair and the lack of support.

  • Crazy cute. I wish I could afford clothes like that to teach in.

  • quiltrx

    That is an absolutely adorable outfit. (similar in *idea* to Chloe’s–she should have worn this instead!)
    But…EMPTY BAG. Come on girls.

  • Peri7473

    this skirt is so similar to the one that Chloe is wearing. was there a memo?

  • hughman

    Ugliest. iPhone cover. Ever.

    • Thomas

      I noticed that too. I don’t know why anyone would ever pay for that. I’ll just take a white sharpie and write it on their black plastic cover.

      • Sarah

        I kind of thought she did write it herself…

        • Thomas

          I think it’s made to look like a chalkboard.

          • Sarah

            I am now going to buy a boatload of crappy iPhone covers, write on them with chalk and lotsa punctuation marks!!, seal them with fixative, and sell them to celebrities. Oh shit – somebody obviously beat me to it.

          • MilaXX

            Just buy perma markers. I’m sure they’re on sale with back to school supplies.

        • decormaven

          Or her publicist. Perfect little accoutrement for her pap stroll.

  • James

    The empty bag makes me nauseous. I am so tired of these staged photo ops that I don’t care if she looks cute.


  • Mothra

    She looks great although I will readily admit to not loving these high waisted skirts and the blouse tucked in. But those sparkles on the collar is so nice! But the lack of anything in her purse is a mortal sin.

  • MilaXX

    Best she has looked in a very long time. She just needs to stuff a few pairs of socks in that empty bag she’s carrying.

  • ChelseaNH

    It’s cute, but I’m ready for the high-waisted skirt thing to be over.

  • alyce1213

    I just love this. I can’t imagine, though, why she wore a strapless bra, given there’s no reason to. Nonetheless, adorbs.

    • snarkykitten

      maybe the back is weird?

      • This has me imagining bizarre back configurations that would necessitate a strapless bra, but still work with it. Symmetrical shoulder-blade cutouts? A big upper-back window from pit-to-pit, so a racerback is out?

  • Anni

    I want to know who Joe is.

  • Yoshio

    I NEED those shoes.

  • Zeee

    I love it all except the obviously empty bag. Really cute glasses..

  • crash1212

    SO cute. That’s how cute. About the hair…if NY is anything like SF, the wind will do that in 5 minutes.

    • Pennymac

      The California winds turn hair Banana Rama Yellow?

      • crash1212

        No, more like a luscious brunette rats nest.

  • Tracy_Flick

    That is some LiLo hair.

  • TinyDynamo

    Maybe she had on a different outfit that worked with the strapless bra (sundress?) & was having a regular girl day, but had to do this for contractual reasons? That’s my guess. Bc she looks like a normal girl wearing expensive clothes, not A Famous Star Wearing Expensive Clothes Casually.

  • ctopine

    Why is no one mentioning her Crayon yellow – colored hair? My god that’s awful. The rest of her is adorable, but that hair hurts my eyes, not to mention my feeelings.

  • That shade of blonde is so not her color, and sooooo banana yellow it’s a little painful. It’s worse than the grown-out roots.

    Love the outfit, especially the collar. I wonder if Chloe Grace-Moretz is seething that Dakota here got the cuter version of her skirt, with a better top to boot.

    But back to the hair thing – I really wish she’d dye it brown or black just to shake her style image, which has always been a little ala Kirsten Dunst circa Virgin Suicides (of course, that’s sort of the Fanning modus operandi – cf. her sister). Its shelf-life must be expiring soon. Plus, that yellow dye job isn’t really holding that image up the way it should.

  • nannypoo

    Before we brush our hair we must first dye it a tolerable color. Then we’ll add a bra and put some stuff in that purse to make it look useful.

  • SewingSiren

    It’s alright Dakota. My bra is making my boobs look weird today too.

    • Gatto Nero

      She’s drooping below the darts in the blouse. Needs to hoik those girls up.

      • SewingSiren

        Me too:(.

  • frannyprof

    ANOTHER EMPTY BAG. make it stop.

  • Anique Ashraf

    As someone with a name most baristas fuck up, I understand, Joe. DakotaJoe.

  • Martha Anderson

    I cannot imagine sitting in that skirt

    I have enough dimples on my butt

  • evave2

    This is how you wear a blouse inside a skirt (ALL IN). I love the baubles on the collar. And the shoes, god bless her shoes.

  • boweryboy

    So, she’s one of those Starbucks customers who grab the first drink placed on the bar because of course it’s hers. Never mind all the other people waiting long before her. Either that or she changed her name to Joe.

    The outfit is cute, but it looks hot.

    • Martha Anderson

      do you really think she would go in and order her own drink?

    • FibonacciSequins

      If I were her, I’d never give my real name at Starbucks.

      • kassy

        I never give my real name because they can’t be bothered to spell or pronounce it correctly even though I’m handing them my starbucks card with my name on it. I use the name Joe a lot at starbucks.

        • FibonacciSequins

          I don’t go there often enough to have a fake name at the ready, so always give my real name. I’m going to remember this and use Joe next time!

          • boweryboy

            Just think cuppa joe.

  • marlie

    The outfit is ADORABLE. But the obviously empty purse irks me.

    Also, the name on her beverage is “Joe.” That sort of cracks me up.

  • Wink

    She and Elle should pool their money and get a good colorist.

    • LambeeBaby

      Good Lord, with all the money they make, you would think it would be a priority. I could do a better job with a box of Clairol

      • Leah Elzinga

        I could do a better job with a bottle of peroxide and a shower cap.

  • Lisalady161

    And put something in our purse to make it look like it’s something we actually use!

  • FibonacciSequins

    So very, very cute. I want it. The collar embellishments! She should have put something in that bag, though.

    This has to be an arranged photo op. She papped walking around NYC on a regular basis and never looks this groomed and styled.

  • Kara Keenan

    Chloe Moretz- this is how you wear a skirt.

    • Myra Amler

      I was thinking that Chloe Moretz would look adorable in this outfit. It certainly would have looked better with her hair!

  • SoAnnaPropriate

    Very impressive. I can’t carry an iced coffee and my phone in the same hand.

    • Qitkat

      Last time I tried to pick up a frappuccino with all five of my fingers (and no phone) I dropped the whole thing all over the floor in the Seattle airport, she’s lucky she didn’t have my careless barista who didn’t put the lid on right. Now that would be a photo-op.

      • SoAnnaPropriate

        I read that as “braless carista”. I need more coffee.

        • Qitkat

          I think you’ve invented a phrase that needs more exploration… ;-p

          “Project Runway contestants, this week you will be designing new uniforms for braless caristas, who deliver coffee and pastries in skimpy uniforms to commuters, right to their cars. Skip the drive-thru, we’ll meet you at the corner of your choosing along your route to the office. It’s the latest thing to hit the NYC streets.”

  • Joey Melliza

    shampoo + brush….

  • livesarah

    She needs a wig. Something to hide that godawful hair. And she would look better braless than to allow that bra to keep mangling her boobs. But yes, cute outfit.

  • David Kresner

    Okay. Agreed, except for the Starbucks part. Yuck.

  • Lisa

    Love it!! Especially the skirt..

  • ktr33

    And put something in our purse. I swear, that one still has tags on it.

  • sunflower

    I want every piece!

  • MoHub

    Buy yourself a bra, girl! Droopy boobs are not attractive.

    • surfergirl70

      It looks like she’s wearing a strapless bra, but it’s too big in the band and pulling everything down. Either way – droopy boobs are not attractive!!

  • decormaven

    A hairbrush would be the best accessory here.

  • I do not understand stars and the empty bag syndrome. Why is it they have nothing to carry when my bags are always stuffed to the brim, so much so that I force myself to carry smaller bags for the sake of my back? Is it because they have minions to carry their stuff? That said, it’s an adorable outfit, but like the rest, I wish she’d brushed her hair and found a good bra.

  • M. H. Leader

    Well…in defense of her hair…if she has very fine hair, the slightest breeze will kick it around just like is shown in the photos. And she could use a bra here. But that outfit is ADORABLE!! Love it! Just what I’d put on to go for Starbucks. If I drank coffee, which I don’t. And if I lived in NYC, which I don’t. And if I could afford several thousand dollars in clothes, which I can’t. And if I were 20-something, which I’m not.

    Huh. Okay, maybe this is NOT what I would put on to go for Starbucks or anything else. But it’s cute as all get-out on her!

  • Sophie

    I hate the hair, and I’m not sure brushing it would have helped – the colour looks bad. The rest is great. And her cup reads “Joe”.

  • Bonnie Blue

    I think this is a really cute outfit and I agree with some others that this is a better deployment than a similar skirt by Chloe Moretz. Dakota’s outfit seems to have better proportions to me. I can give her a pass on the hair flyaways if it was windy, but it looks like it also needs a good brushing. But she looks very cute.

  • halleygee

    I wasn’t sure if that was going to be a good shriek or a bad shriek – glad it was good bc think she looks so cute. I don’t even mind the messy hair, makes it look more genuine, even if it’s not. She looks like she really is in a hurry, maybe she is rushing to find the stuff that belongs in her purse, which is obviously empty.

  • CJ Guziewicz

    To be so young and have boobs so low….

    • MarissaLG

      The clear work of a poorly-fit strapless bra.

  • NinjaCate

    She looks great! This should be her style! Everything works except that hair.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    My entire closet does not cost as much as that outfit. I have got to get some more fabulous in my wardrobe.

  • NBG

    What stylist worth his/her salt puts a client into an expensive contractually obligated outfit without making sure the star has a good bra on underneath it? For shame.

    And ugh, the hair. Don’t even.

  • bayusc

    I like that she used the name “Joe” for her Starbucks. “I’m not a celeb! It’s just little ol’ me – Joe!”

  • OMG LOVE!!!

  • Trishington

    Very cute indeed. But too bad the top doesn’t fit properly.

  • Skippymom1

    Or visit our colorist.

  • Danielle West

    She really needs a bra fitting. That bust is sad.

  • Jecca2244

    i love this!!! and i could actually wear this.

  • kategs

    It’s a cup of Joe which I think is clever as all get out.

  • musi_

    this is glorious and i’d wear all of it.

  • SophieCollier

    Pretty freaking cute, to answer your shriek.

  • in a pickle

    brush hair and put on a bra

  • ktr33

    I sort of didn’t expect positive shrieking, actually. The top does not fit her right — pulling badly around arm pits and boobs. And is the collar s’posed to be all askew? BAG IS EMPTY. Again. Of course.

    I kinda think she looks like a mess! Am I alone? And why did she steal that iced coffee from some poor shlub named Joe?

  • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

    What are you guys talking about? The darts on the blouse have gone all wonky and make her chest look like her boobs are sinking, the skirt is a bedazzled piece of navy blue nothing, and her bag is obviously empty… You guys are on crack today.

  • MM4321

    Love the outfit. The Fanning sisters need to go get a 2-for-1 special at the salon, though . . . over processed, brassy blond doesn’t work well on either of them.

  • RutGot

    I agree that she looks really cute but I’m little put off by the idea of a, what 16 year old? 15 year old?, wearing slingbacks. They seem like such a mature shoe. They’re busting heads and making deals kind of shoes, not a teen year wandering around in the summer shoes.

  • Love it!

  • Judy_J

    Maybe it’s because my purse is always jammed to the max, but that bag looks totally empty.
