Dakota Fanning and Leelee Sobieski Dazzle At Tribeca Film Festival

As red caret looks go, they’re worlds apart, but Dakota Fanning and Leelee Sobieski both killed it with their respective ensembles at a Vanity Fair party in New York last night. The bash kick started the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, and only show stopping looks will do for a magazine whose annual Oscar parties are legendary!

Dakota, who never fails to nail an age-appropriate red carpet style, picked a hot pink Lanvin cocktail frock, accessorising with gold trim heels, clutch and chain hairband. Leelee opted for the most directional floorsweeper we’ve ever seen – a full skirted white shirt dress from cool catwalk minimalist Jil Sander. Sticking with the theme, the only accessory needed was a slick of red lipstick. With Hollywood’s elite set to descend on NYC for the next ten days of Tribeca events, you’re in for a real red carpet treat. The A-list ladies are going to have to seriously up their game! GG
