Dakota Fanning Admits She Was Too Young for First Marc Jacobs Gig
Dakota Fanning for Marc Jacobs Spring 2007.
Dakota Fanning has played muse to fashion designer Marc Jacobs for years now, landing her first modeling campaign for his brand in 2006.
Fanning, who covers the latest issue of W magazine with her younger sister Elle, explained of the experience, "I was 12. I was always into fashion because my mom has always been interested in fashion. She majored in fashion merchandising in college, and it's always been something we have in common. When I did that first campaign for Marc Jacobs, I wasn't really old enough to wear the clothes. He made all the clothes from the runway in my size."
An interesting admission indeed from a woman whose campaigns still prove controversial. Earlier this month, the British Advertising Standards Authority chose to ban Fanning's ad for Marc Jacobs' new perfume Oh, Lola! over the suggestiveness of her pose (with a gigantic flower bottle balanced between her thighs).
But Fanning's Spring/Summer 2007 campaign for Marc Jacobs was far tamer fare—she just looked like a little girl wandering around in her mother's clothes. Which sells, apparently.
