Another day, another stunning appearance on the Toronto International Film Festival red carpet. While we've seen celebrities like Kate Hudson, Natalie Portman, Brie Larson, and Amy Adams – to name a few – hit the red carpet earlier this week and last, it was young actress Dakota Fanning's turn to take the spotlight over the last few days.
She's youthful and fairy-tale-like one day, sultry and dishevelled the next, then dark and sophisticated, proving that Dakota Fanning can adopt just about any look she pleases! Since we're so inspired by her ability to take on a versatile number of looks, we're taking a closer look at Dakota's best looks from the TIFF 2016 red carpet so far.
DAKOTA FANNING AT TIFF 2016: HER BEST LOOKS
A FAIRYTALE PRINCESS
On September 9th, Dakota attended the premiere of American Pastoral at Toronto's Princess of Wales Theatre looking like well, a fairy-tale princess. The young actress wore a bright green Princess-cut gown adorned with shimmery accents, a bejewelled belt and a matching silver brooch at her bust. We love the way the green gown complimented her pale skin tone and warm, rosy makeup look.
Speaking of makeup, Dakota opted for a simple, yet standout look that warmed up her complexion and gave nod to this season's red makeup trend. While her lips were coated with a reddish-brown shade of matte lipstick, her cheeks were flushed with pink blush, and her blue eyes were enhanced with the help of light orange shadow and a touch of mascara. If you have a pale skin tone, try warming it up with shades of orange, red, and brown on your lips, eyes, and cheeks!
SULTRY AND DISHEVELLED
For her red carpet appearance at the TIFF/InStyle/HFPA party held on September 10th, Dakota transformed from youthful, fairy-tale princess to sophisticated adult. She swapped her bejewelled green gown for a more fitted, vibrant red number that showed off her figure, and wore her hair messy and dishevelled at her shoulders.
She kicked up the glam factor with a glittering gold eye shadow to accompany her glossy rose coloured lips and flushed cheeks. To achieve her messy and dishevelled hair 'do try L'Oreal's matt & messy spray, then scrunch the product through your damp hair using your fingers. Let it dry naturally and voila! A hot mess!
DARK AND SOPHISTICATED
For her most recent appearance on the TIFF red carpet, Dakota went with a darker and more sophisticated look at the September 12th premiere of Brimstone. She wore a plum velvet Dolce & Gabbana gown with a regal floral embellishment at the waist and shoulders. She matched the dark colour with plum nail polish and a plum pout that gave her a more sophisticated look.
Her gorgeous blonde locks were tied up into a high ponytail on top of her head, and worn dishevelled and messy.
