Dakota Fanning covers Glamour March 2013 in a Marc Jacobs shirt, Jonathan Saunders skirt, and Chanel bracelets. All of which, incidentally, fits neatly into my purse. Inside the issue, she talks about her Marc Jacobs perfume ad being banned in the UK for sexualising someone who looked so young at the time.
- On her banned ad: ‘If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can… But it’s also like, ‘Why are you making it about that, you creep?’ I love Marc and trust him. I just laughed about it.’
- On her everyday fashion: ‘It’s really fun when you’re getting dressed for something. It’s not when you’re in the rain with an umbrella and trying to carry a case of water. Yep, that’s me, alone, coming from Duane Reade [the drug store]. I’m not wearing a bra. Deal with it.’
- On sister, Elle Fanning: ‘She’s very uninhibited and will try pretty much anything. Even the way she dresses… she dresses totally for herself. She risks being made fun of…by me, which I sometimes do, because I’m an older sister! But I totally admire her and think she’s very cool.’
- On not dating: ‘I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college. I’ve always thought that’s what it’s supposed to be like, and if it’s not, then I don’t want to waste my time on it. Even when I was 14, I was like, ‘I’m not gonna marry this person. What’s the point of doing it?’ It’s not me being naive. I just know what it’s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered.’
