Dakota Fanning was back in black on Sunday, showing off a more mature style than fans are used to seeing on the former child star.
The 22-year-old actress sat front row at Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show alongside showbiz pals Shailene Woodley and Diane Kruger, looking sophisticated in a chic mid-calf length black lace gown that gathered elegantly at the waist, lending the dress an A-Line silhouette. Fanning’s sheer look retained her modesty, as she paired the barely-there piece with full-coverage undergarments.
The Bell Jar actress complemented the gothic glamor of her ensemble with a studded clutch and a pair of strappy black stilettos. She pinned the front right portion of her platinum locks back, leaving the rest draping over her shoulders in a style that mimicked an edgy side cut.
