Dakota Fanning is soon turning 21, but says she prefers knitting to partying.

“Pretty much every director I’ve ever worked for I’ve knit a scarf for,” the “Twilight” star said.

Fanning, whose birthday is in February, has no plans to hit the clubs.
She said,

“I have no idea what to do. It’s been such a talked-about thing for so long, like, what are you gonna do for your birthday, that I think by the time it rolls around I’m just going to stay home with five friends and call it a day.”

Dakota Fanning may as well just add “model” to her CV at this point.

The 19-year-old has just been tapped by shoe brand Attilio Giusti Leombruni to front its Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. “She takes us back to basics, where we naturally belong,” the three Giusti sisters said in a statement, adding that Dakota perfectly embodies the brand’s “minimalist aesthetics, compatibility with urban life and a sense of couture.”

And how. Dakota has been a fixture in the fashion world from a very young age, hitting red carpets in trendy ready-to-wear dresses and landing a coveted Marc Jacobs modeling gig when she was still high school age. Plus, she and little sis Elle, 15, have become a package deal, fronting the campaign for J.Estina together and setting trends in their own right.

So congrats, Dakota. You’ve officially made quite the case for sparkly shoes…

Fanning was set to be the subject of a Spotlight program and Q&A after the film screening; She won’t be appearing at the festival this year as a result of the cancellation.

Effie Gray, a film about the “curiously brief marriage and abrupt annulment of famed art critic John Ruskin and his ethereal child bride – played by actress Dakota Fanning – has canceled its world premiere screening Saturday at the 36th Mill Valley Film Festival, with its producer Donald Rosenfeld citing “unforeseen circumstance.”

Fanning was set to be the subject of a Spotlight program and Q&A after the screening at the Rafael Film Center in San Rafael. She won’t be appearing at the festival this year as a result of the cancellation.

No specific reason was given for the cancellation, though the film, the screenplay of which was written by famed actress Emma Thompson, has been the subject of a legal fight with Gregory Murphy, a “playwright who alleges that the Oscar-winning actress drew inspiration for her screenplay from his play, The Countess, which was performed in the West End in 2005,” according to the The Telegraph newspaper.

Murphy told the paper last month that Thompson and her legal team had until November to reply to an appeal Murphy filed after he lost an earlier legal battle over the film.

Effie Gray had originally been planned to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
