You've Never Seen Dakota Fanning Like This Before

At 22, not many actresses can sport a resume similar to that of Dakota Fanning. The uber-talented star has made a name for herself onscreen alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. But offscreen, her youthful-cool style is what captures our attention. Along with her sister Elle, the actress is one to watch. In her latest feature with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, Dakota offers up a side we haven’t seen before, embracing dark romance in the shoot, and opening up about what life is really like for her in Hollywood. 

She comments on her relationship with her sister, “The assumption that we’re really competitive, that people even ask that, is horrible. It’s implied our family [is] torn apart by jealousy. It shows people don’t pay attention to who we are…” Dakota also discussed her fierce independence, and about learning to stand up for herself, noting, “Being empowered to say no is pretty cool.” In both work and style, Dakota’s confidence in her own autonomy is what sets her apart.
