Dakota Fanning – The Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Queen


Dakota Fanning may be just 19, but she stole the show from Hollywood heavyweights including Cate Blanchett at the 70th Venice International Film Festival this weekend.

The blonde starlet slipped into a show-stopping navy embellished Elie Saab gown with a plunging neckline and sides, to walk the sun-soaked red carpet in the Italian city. Dakota made sure to flaunt the frock from every angle, giving us a good look at the gorgeous train and intricate embroidery, and let it do the talking by opting for minimal make-up and her signature straight, side-parted tresses.

The actress is at the festival to promote her new flick Night Moves
, in which she dyes her platinum locks brown to play Dena Brauer, a wealthy eco-terrorist who finances a plan to blow up a damn
along with The Social Network’s
Jesse Eisenberg and Peter Sarsgaard. 

We don’t know how the film fared, but Dakota definitely gets our Venice Film Festival Best Dressed award.
