The wonderful Dakota Fanning turns 19 today, and being that she is one of our favorite kid stars-turned-beautiful starlets, like ever, we thought we’d celebrate with her most fashion goddess-like outfits!
It’s been more than a decade (WTF!) since we first fell in love with an adorable 7-year-old Dakota in 2001’s I Am Sam, and since then she’s more than made a name for herself while sharing the big screen with big name actors like Denzel Washington, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tom Cruise and Robert De Niro (just to name a FEW). What can we expect, though? The girl’s got more talent in her pinky toe than we do in our body! Talent aside, Ms. Dakota Fanning has blossomed into a beautiful young lady, fully equipped with a fashion sense that makes us look at our closet with shame. Don’t believe us? Well, in honor of her birthday, we’ve put together a gallery of Dakota’s 19 most fashion goddess-like looks. Let’s just say she’s leaps and bounds away from the cute little frilly dress and pigtails she wore as Sally in Cat in the Hat! Check ‘em out above!
