Dakota Fanning copied Britney Spears’ look as a child.
The 17-year-old actress looked up to music icons as a youngster and emulated their signature style. Dakota has enjoyed experimenting with different trends throughout her childhood.
“As a girl, Britney Spears was my idol, so I played around with some of her looks,” she explained in the January issue of Marie Claire.
“The most adventurous I’ve been with make-up was on the film The Runaways. One of the looks was like silver spray paint over my eyes which I still try to emulate, in a modified way.”
Dakota is a big fan of beauty products. The pretty star insists nail care is paramount when it comes to completing her look.
“I am obsessed with nail art – I’m desperate to try the thing where they literally put toys on your nails,” she quipped. “I collect Chanel nail polishes and have nearly all of them displayed in my bathroom – the minute one comes out, I’m all over it.”
Dakota’s younger sister Elle is following in her footsteps and has stepped into the film industry spotlight. Dakota is protective of her 13-year-old sibling, and wants her to dress appropriately for her age.
“If I were to give my younger sister beauty advice, I’d say that although it’s fun to go crazy with make-up, I don’t like seeing young girls trying to be someone they’re not,” she explained.
“I think we should keep youthful for as long as possible.”
