Dakota Fanning sits front row at Rodarte with Vogue EIC Anna Wintour, reminding us she was the first Fanning Fashionista.


Sure little sis Elle Fanning might currently be one of the faces of Miu Miu’s Spring ad campaign, and sure it wasn’t Elle’s first time at the designer campaign rodeo, but…

Let us not forget that it was eldest sister Dakota Fanning who first fronted a designer ad campaign at the ripe old age of 12 when she served as muse for the Marc Jacobs Spring 2007 campaign.

And don’t forget it was Dakota Fanning who took part in Fashion’s Night Out wearing a fab little patent leather dress from Prada.

And…proving she’s willing to be adventurous when it comes to fashion and her look, it was Dakota who boldly dyed her hair pink.

All this to say: Don’t sleep on the eldest Fanning sister when it comes to fashion.

Dakota is, after all, the sister who’s sitting front row with Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour at the Rodarte Fall 2014 collection presentation, looking quite chummy I might add.

Both Fanning sisters have worn Rodarte on the red carpet, so it was no surprise to see Dakota on hand to support the designing sisters behind the brand, Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

Decked out in her Rodarte finest, Dakota wore a Fall 2013 look from the label, that included a dipped hem skirt with contrast lining and beaded detailing, a nude tank top, and black and white contrast stripe pumps.

It’s a more adult look than what we’re used to seeing from Elle, one that says, “Hey I’m a 19 year old college student at NYU.

We hear you Dakota. We hear you.
