Dakota Fanning's Teen Style Transformation

Shirley Temple, she's not. The perfect balance of naughty and nice, cover girl Dakota Fanning keeps the world guessing. Panty flashes plague young stars. But Dakota Fanning's red-carpet choices — a couture Elie Saab at The Runaways premiere, an embellished Emilio Pucci at SXSW — are more age-appropriate than indecent. Not that the 16-year-old shies away from a daring ensemble. Arriving at our photoshoot in combat boots and skinny jeans, Fanning felt right at home in the edgy looks assembled by the MC fashion team. Schoolgirl skirts gone wild and mixed-media blazers complemented Fanning's old soul/hot starlet persona. Whether or not her teacher, who accompanied her on set, approved is another story.
