Fugger: Dakota Fanning

Fug or Fab: Dakota Fanning in Dolce & Gabbana at TIFF

I really like the front of this dress, but the styling sort of makes Dakota look like she’s arrived late for a final audition for a period piece after realizing whilst on the Stairmaster that she was actually scheduled to be at Warner Brothers at 2pm, not 4pm and she’ll never get there in time, run RUN!!!!!

2016 Toronto International Film Festival - 'Brimstone' Premiere

Ye Olde Gym Hair works sometimes — even I, Cranky Old Person, can admit that — but this is, in my opinion, not one of those times. I get wanting to dress down this outfit, but I wonder if a braid would have accomplished the same thing without giving the feeling that she just flew like a bat out of hell out of Equinox.

The back of the dress is pretty, though:

I feel like you could arguably wear this dress backwards, too. Like two D&Gs in one! Don’t ever say they never gave you a bargain.



Well Played: The American Pastoral Cast at the Toronto Film Festival

This is one really good-looking cast. And whoever is responsible for styling them for TIFF is making the most of everyone’s genetic blessings. They look, to an actor, fab.


Cheerfully Played: Dakota Fanning at the Venice Film Festival

The Fanning sisters have taken a VERY dark cinematic turn lately. First, Elle was in the astonishingly vile Neon Demon, and now Dakota stars in the horror-Western Brimstone, in which she plays a mute wife and mother who bumps up against a rotten priest played by Guy Pearce. Dakota herself may have felt her Bleak Detector buzz, because she stormed Venice in some stuff that’s the exact OPPOSITE of depressing.

Also, the Fanning Parents must secretly be wishing for a Mean Girls or Easy A to roll across their desks just for some levity. I really, really hope neither one of them saw Neon Demon. Because what they don’t know cannot haunt them.

Fug or Fab: Dakota Fanning in Monique Lhuillier

In truth, I think the dress itself here is adorable.

'The Neon Demon' Los Angeles Premiere

But it needs a hoiking, a bracelet-ing, and a scrubbing — the latter, of her face, because I think having EVERY SINGLE THING be shiny is way too much. Even magpies sometimes need to sit down because their wings are tired, you know?

The Secret Life of Fugs: Dakota Fanning in Valentino

Listen, Dakota, I’m going to miss Downton Abbey terribly, too.

But our angst does not give us leave to wander out of the house in one of Lady Mary’s re-purposed dressing gowns! YOU HAVE TO GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF.
