Originally I was going to make Dakota Fanning’s NYFW look at the Rodarte show a “love or loathe” but upon closer inspection, there was simply no way I could even pretend that her ensemble was anything other than a fashion travesty. Observe:
I know, darlings, the shoes. The purposely mismatching shoes. Is she a rapper from the 90s? Even if the rest of her look had been flawless, the footwear situation still would’ve qualified her as a hot mess. But clearly, that wasn’t the case; her look is terrible from the unflattering color of the dress against her pale winter skin, to her “I bought this on the beach in Jamaica” necklace, to her old lady shawl.
Overall, this outfit needs to be buried underneath the blizzard ASAP. I spotted Dakota sitting front row next to Anna Wintour, who hopefully gave her a serious scolding. But tell me minions, is any part of this look working on poor misguided DF? Or does some wise fashionista need to take Dakota under her well-dressed wing?
