Stunning: Elle & Dakota Fanning

I think 13 year old Elle and 17 year old Dakato Fanning are stunning in the W Magazine photo shoot. I love that they are grounded and both are brilliant actresses mature beyond their ages. It was interesting as these two practically grew up before our eyes starting out as little tots. Especially the younger Elle who towers over Dakota. She hardly looks 13 here, but at least they look ethereal and not dressed up to look sexually provocative like I’ve seen with some other young stars. I should qualify that I mean in this photo shoot, because recently Dakota Fanning’s latest perfume ad for Marc Jacobs has raised controversy about being sexually provocative and I have to agree that it is crossing the line. Please, children should be off limits and Dakota was just 17 at the time. I blame the people who managed the ad and not the young girl of course. It was banned in the UK.

    I agree that they do look beautiful in the picture. I didn’t see the perfume add, so I’ll take your word for it that it was controversial. I wish little girls could just be (innocent) little girls longer.

      I like that at least in this photoshoot they still look like lil girls playing dress up with mum’s clothes. In the UK ad they made Dakota place a perfume bottle between her legs. It was definitely not right.

    I saw the Dakota Fanning ad outside Tangs in Orchard the other day actually! To be honest I don’t see anything wrong with it.
