Miss Dakota went and made a couple of liars out of us and we couldn’t be more pleased about it. See, last week, we gave her a rather back-handed assessment, stating that her rather limited style was never going to be the colorful, shiny thing we wanted it to be and that we were pretty much okay with her doing her Dakota thing and that we’ve given up on expecting anything further from her on the style front than “rocker chick lite.”

Well, shut our mouths:

How cute is this look? More importantly (to us, anyway), how stylish is this look? The answer to both questions is “very.” We’re pretty well over the “forced whimsy” craze in fashion this past year, but if Mis Dakota needed a magic wand to talk her into this very cute and colorful ’40s-inspired dress, we’re all for it. We’ll even give a pass to the super-matchy shoes. The dress has a great shape (love the collar and sleeves), the color looks amazing on her, and she’s polished and put-together in a way we rarely see from her. This look is not only a winner, it’s one of the best things we’ve ever seen her wear.

LOVE. Serving up pure “movie star,” which is not something one gets to say about Dakota Fanning’s style choices. Of course, she had to go and Fanning things up by sporting a too-shiny face and yoga hair, but we suppose she can only be so polished for so long before she starts to rebel a little. A dress like this pretty much requires a more done-up head than that, but we’re just happy to see her picking a dress like this in the first place.
