    She looks beautiful! A tur role model for young people.

  • Spicylily,bkk Thailand

    She is growing and glowing…..
    Nice young lady……..and sure will be pretty.
    She is also talented but I hope she will not getting spoiled like………
    Lindsay Lohan.

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    wtf kinda name is Lewellen? That was Josh Brolin’s name in No Country For Old Men, so it’s a southern guy/girl name?

  • Renesmee

    “A tur role model for young people” Have you heard what her role is in that movie? They had to go back and re-film more than half of that movie to clean it up.

  • girl

    I think she’s adorable. She actually knows how to dress unlike all the other teen actresses her age.

  • Just Jared Staff

    Hahah, i know i love Dakota (:

  • tr

    fourteen? no way jose. she’s growing up so gorgeous

  • Elena

    Lovely :)


    She kinda looks like Amanda Seyfried and Hayden Panettiere
    she should play her little sis on Heroes…

  • brandy

    this girl beats them ALL out in hollywood. she is the true definition of CLASS. she’ll never change, always classy, never trashy ;)

  • brandy

    and i really, really love how she is dressed appropriate for this type of event. and let’s not forget she’s not even wearing too much makeup, unlike some youngsters out there who are trying to grow up way too quickly ………*cough* (taylor momsen)

  • selena

    I like her! She seems like a normal girl.
    Just look at her.. that’s the way a 14 year old should look like.. Dina! Take a look at her! Your daughter looks like 40 although they are almost same age.. tragic.

  • anno

    She’s absolutely stunning. I saw Hounddog, the “scandal” of the rape thing was blown SO out of proportion. You only see her face, she’s old enough to know about and understand rape. and she’s a good actress.

    She is a great role model, and it’s so refreshing to see at the moment what with all the disney stars getting slutty and taylor momsen turning into a crack whore. Nuff said.

  • anno

    Oh and, I love her necklace.

  • dkj

    she’s pretty

  • omgsh

    wow, she’s so pretty ! I really really like Dakota :) . No scandals and she’s on TOP ! I like her shirt, but don’t like her shoes. I think she should wear mary-jane shoes, not high heels.

  • Anna

    She is so naturally pretty, she’s 14 and has like just a eyeliner & mascara,she’s outfit is so cute. she wonderfull!!

  • Bella

    She reminds me of a young Jodi Foster.
    I could not stand her before, but I think she is growing to a very talented actress, who choses her roles well.


    I really love her. She’s a young talented actress.

  • Helena

    I detest leggings and it doesn’t help when Dakota Fanning wears them!

  • mahmuda

    Is that seriously Dakota Fanning!
    She has grow so much!!!
    The last movie i ever saw of her when she was young was: The Day After Tomorrow.
    Dakota’s fourteen!
    I thought she would be at least 12.
    I remember her in the film The Cat in the Hat. She looked so adorable!

  • Anon

    Dakota Fanning is going to be a really pretty girl in a Kate Winslet kind of way. I think she will grow up just fine. She’s really smart and grounded and i think her parents have done a good job. I think she will probably go to college like Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, Emmy Rossum, and Ann Hathaway did. Dakota is A-list classy, not like those publicity whores who call the media to make sure they get photographed clubbing all night.

  • anno

    lol dakota wasnt in The Day After Tomorrow!!

  • katie

    she deffinitely deserves everything she has gotten!
    she is one of the best child actors.

    fuck these disney stars.

  • tazy

    thank you but dakota she’s realey amazing ..I expect to be an example of fame is carefully stars in the sky Hollywood .. I do not expect it will be like (Donny Smith ) & ( Makulai ) .. Because successful films this year and no one can come to look like Dakota

  • Athena

    She looks really beautiful and I’m happy she’s dressing her age. She’s going to have a much longer and successful career. I hope Hollywood continues to treat her right.

  • naty

    I really like this girl she is a true role model

  • sillyme

    I love this girl! I’ve always wondered what kind of actress she’d be as she got older, or whether she’d still be working at this age. But, she seems to be growing up beautifully and still doing well as an actress. I can see her being kind of a Laura Linney/Diane Lane type as an adult.

  • serena

    she’s growing up to be a beautiful young lady…very pretty and glowing…

  • Creature from the Black Lagoon

    What a cute and talented young actress. Fanning and Summer Bishil are the stars of tomorrow.

    Does anyone else think she looks like Lauren Conrad’s little sister in these pics?

  • (:

    she looks very beautiful ;P this is the way a 14 year old should look like! she is just 3 months younger than ali lohan! and omg! there is a big diffrence… ali lohan looks like she is at least 25.

  • Rere

    And too think shes 14…
    And Miley is 15

  • elle

    she has a bad teeth though, with all the money she has why cant she get them fix or something.

  • CelebrityFanChat Raph

    she’s very pretty

  • common sense

    Dakota Fanning and Ali Lohan are the same age. Can you imagine?

  • evie

    How nice to see a fourteen year looking their age. So natural and pretty, other Hollywood skanks should take note. She looks adorable.

  • Non

    She Sooo Talented !! She The Best Young Actress Going !!

  • annie

    Dakota has always been a real talented actress,
    Unlike those Disney kids that just hop and dance and think they are the biggest thing that ever happened to Hollywood.
    Can you imagine she is only 1 year younger than Slutty Cyrus?!
    Wow dont see this girl dating a 19 yr old!

    lol dakota wasnt in The Day After Tomorrow!!

    Maybe the poster meant war of the worlds…

  • Grams

    Now THIS is how a 14 year old is SUPPOSE to look. This girl has great parents. Much unlike Ali Lohan whose parents are pimping her out to look like a sex starved 18 year old.
    Good job, Mr. & Mrs. Fanning for bringing up your daughter the RIGHT way !

  • mz Sass

    Her parents seem to be doing a fantastic job. I like the top and the shoes.
    I have to admit though they should have her teeth fixed properly. She used to make between 5 & 10 MILLION dollars per picture so they can afford to have her teeth corrected.
    She’s a breath of fresh air in terms of teen “stars” and has actual talent.

  • dakota fan

    Dakota is truly lovely. She will be the most beautiful actress of her generation.

  • becca

    she looks like a 14-year old girl… not too grown up but VERY beautiful.
    i bet her family is very proud of her.

  • mandee

    i think she is simply GORGEOUS now ! i never really thought she was very cute or pretty as a child, but she is sure growing into her looks !!! and about her teeth, i think its great that they arent FORCING her to have braces yet. i am sure when shes ready, she will fix her teeth herself. but until then, who cares? let her be a kid a little longer :)

  • Ilaria

    She’s beautiful, but she should fix up her theeth………

  • Ilaria

    she should fix up her theeth….

  • ****

    Is she pregnant?

  • lulu

    god she is gorgeous. im just stunned. classy,beautiful and talented!
    I love this girl.
