Dakota Fanning, who just turned 24 in February, was in good spirits at Dolce and Gabbana's latest affair this weekend kicking off the brand's Alta Moda women’s couture event at the New York Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center. The actress looked all grown up and stole the show in a long-sleeved pink dress adorned with glimmering faux jewels that caught the eye of everyone in attendance. Dakota was out and about in order to promote her TV series, "The Alienist", which co-stars Luke Evans.
Sources say that Dakota recently gave an interview for The One Show in London and mainly talked about her goal to work with her younger sister, Elle Fanning, 20. "I would love to work with my sister Elle," Dakota said. "It’s something we’ve always wanted to do, but it’s about finding the right thing. We don’t want to be sisters in whatever we do as it would be expected, we want to do something different."
This makes sense. The sisters share a strong resemblance, so casting directors would likely want the actresses to play the role of sisters. It is completely understandable though that playing the roles of unrelated characters is something that the real-life sisters desire. They would still be able to work together, enjoying their chosen craft as adult actresses, rather than having the feeling of being cast together simply because of their common DNA.
Dakota and Elle have worked together before, but mostly as children with Elle playing the younger version of Dakota's character in flashback scenes. Being able to work together in a different capacity would be interesting to watch as many people have enjoyed watching Dakota grow up before their eyes on movies that propelled her to stardom such as I Am Sam, Uptown Girls, and Man on Fire. Elle Fanning started to make a name for herself with TV roles on popular shows such as CSI: Miami, until landing a part in 2005 release Because of Winn Dixie with the role of Sweetie Pie Thomas.
We like that Dakota went full pink, head to toe, for this Dolce and Gabbana event. Pink eyeshadow, pink dress, pink strappy heels. Go pink or go home, Dakota!
