Two of Hollywood foremost young actresses and sisters, Dakota and Elle Fanning are the epitome of divine in the December cover preview of W magazine!
17 year old Dakota Fanning sparked controversy recently because of the Jurgen Teller photographed image of Marc Jacobs Oh Lola! fragrance banned in the UK. The UK Advertising Standards Agency have deemed the pictures ‘too suggestive’ and have ordered it be pulled forthwith.
According to the regulatory body the “length of her dress, her leg and the position of the perfume bottle drew attention to her sexuality. Because of that, along with her appearance, we considered the ad could be seen to sexualise a child.” You may view the campaign image, here.
Her 13 year old sister, Elle, gaining quite a positive buzz this year with her role in JJ Abrams‘s Super 8 and the campaign slot for Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2011. Elle Fanning also featured on the gorgeous cover of LOVE magazine this year.
