Dakota Fanning Shares the 1 Dress That Holds a Special Place in Her Heart

You may remember Dakota Fanning as the adorable child star in movies like I am Sam (for which she became the youngest SAG Awards nominee in history at just 8 years old) or the feel-good rom-com Uptown Girls. But over the years Dakota has also become a permanent fixture in the fashion world, from gracing the red carpet in eye-catching gowns to starring in a Marc Jacobs campaign and now, Jimmy Choo.

The fashion house tapped the actress for its SS ’17 collection and in an interview, Dakota divulged her first red-carpet memory. The moment was just as fashion-forward as you’d expect from the star.

“My first red carpet memory is the I am Sam premiere. It was my first film, therefore my first premiere. I wore a satin champagne colored dress with capped sleeves. I had a purse that was black patent and shaped like a present, which I thought was very chic,” she said. “I am sure I still have it somewhere. I do not really look back and cringe too much, definitely more of a warm nostalgia.”

Dakota’s style has come a long way from that first premiere dress, though she still favors practicality in most of her outfits. Don’t expect her to see stomping around the concrete jungle aka NYC in a pair of stiletto heels. Unless, of course, they’re chunky platforms. “I am more a flats girl when I am in New York because there is so much walking involved when you live in the city,” she said. “But with that being said, I love heels of all kinds. Chunky platforms in particular.”

So, it should come as no surprise that her favorite pair of shoes from the Spring collection is a pair of pristine white sneakers. Check out the ethereal images from the campaign, along with some behind-the-scene shots, below.
