Little Dakota Fanning All Grown Up

We all remember Dakota Fanning. Not only one of the cutest little kid stars, but also one of the most well-spoken kid stars. She’s been in many movies since the beginning of her young career. One of the most memorable Dakota movies is “Man on Fire” with Denzel Washington.  She has also worked with Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds, Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama, appeared in Stephen Spielberg’s movie Taken and has also appeared in the Twilight movies, New Moon and Eclipse.

Her first appearance was on a Tide commercial. She has done so many more movies and has grown to be a young woman since then. We can no longer mistake her for a child. She may only be  17, but she’s doing more than some grown women can tackle at one time. Dakota just graduated from high school with the class of 2011 and will be transitioning into college in the fall. A movie star going to college? She doesn’t need the money, that’s for sure. But Dakota’s family is all about education. Even her middle school actor sister will be attending college when her times comes.

While in high school though, Dakota was a part of the cheerleading squad, won homecoming queen and made tons of movies all before the age of 18. She has been seen touring NYU, so I’m sure she will grace New York with her upcoming college knowledge. As though she’s not busy enough, she is also the face of Marc Jacob’s new perfume, Oh Lola! She poses for the Oh, Lola! photo shoot in a light pink polka dot dress with a bottle of the perfume between her legs.

With her recent high school graduation and as a soon-to-be college student, Dakota is sure to be hitting the books soon wearing her glasses. Dakota is known to rock a pair of round, black-rimmed glasses. And as a model/actress, her style is one to copy. Get this well spoken, smarty pants’ look with some round reading glasses.
