Dakota Fanning - Met Ball 2012

Dakota Fanning - Met Ball 2012

Dakota Fanning strikes a pose on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 18-year-old actress took a break from her finals week at New York University to attend the annual gala.

Dakota wore a lavender organza gown from Louis Vuitton – the jupon is made of tulle and covered with organza, embroidered with flowers made of hand stitched organza ribbons and took over 250 hours of work. She finished off her look with Fred Leighton jewelry and LV accessories – satin sandals and a silk lavender minaudière with old metal finishing.

This year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit – celebrating the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition – is co-chaired by Carey Mulligan, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada.

    This is what happens when you let a designer dress you without your say! I swear they’ll just send you anything and you have to wear it. But anyones lucky to wear a custom designer dress. I don’t like this dress.

  • Lennie

    So so.

  • Alia san

    her face looks so cute but the dress =X

  • Peaches

    I love Dakota but she’s 18 now. She needs to stop dressing like a 13 year old.

  • Mimi

    Lee byung hun?

  • Amy

    I like the dress but not on her though. I agree with Peaches, it probably could look better on like Elle Fanning.

  • Manu

    Its a célébration for prada and she comes in Louis Vuitoon … –”

    @Mimi: Yeahhh, that’s him behind !


    I think the dress is little to big on her I think a gown-less dress would probably suit her better but you gotta admit this girl is as pretty as any flower in the month of may. Kudos : )
