Seeing as how only 5 days ago I posted images of Dakota Fanning
from UK's Instyle magazine looking like THIS
, something very, very different from how she looked on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 2
. Not only does she look way younger when there isn't a Photoshop genie around, she doesn't even look like the same person from the layout in that periodical. I was never a huge Dakota Fanning as a child actress fan, finding her to be a tad more precocious that I prefer (Freddie Highmore rubbed me the wrong way as well), but I really liked the fact that she took a little bit of time off from being that big paycheck and went to high school like a normal(ish) teen. Now I'm curious to see if she can continue to be more grown up, as she started to prove with her performance as Cherie Curry in THE RUNAWAYS. Still... I don't like the brown hair. Too flat, too plain. I'm sure it's filming well on whatever project she dyed it for, but eh. I don't like it.
