Hollywod Actress Dakota Fanning Wears Lace to Tennis

Teenage actress Dakota Fanning is finally slowing down her hectic schedule and taking time out to relax at the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

The rest is much needed because at the tender age of 17, Dakota has starred in no less than 20 films. Her first major role was aged 7 when she starred alongside Hollywood legends Sean Penn and Michelle Pfeiffer in I Am Sam.

But younger film fans will know her for her part in the Twilight vampire movies where she plays the evil Jane, part of the dangerous Volturi family.

It’s for that reason Dakota is in the UK and she’s due to stay until the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II on 7 July.

We can’t wait to see what she’ll choose to wear for the premiere because she’s getting good at putting together an outfit. The lace dress teamed with the cream jacket that she wore to Wimbledon is simple but stunning.

But Very can exclusively reveal Dakota needs to make the most of her break as it’s straight back to work after the Twilight premiere.

She’s landed a part in a new thriller called Mississippi Wild with Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and the hell-raiser Mickey Rourke.

Dakota plays the girlfriend of a teenager that goes on thr run after selling diamonds that belong to a local gangster.

Dakota’s clearly got a thing for playing complicate characters, which is a big contrast to the sweet and innocent image she portrayed at Wimbledon.

If you’d like to copy her cute summer outfit then check out the French Connection fantail dress

If you like lace and you like a bargain then the Love Label pleated lace dress was £39 but is now just £23

Or for something to help you stand out at an event that’s incredibly flattering to your figure try the South open knit ladder stitch tunic. It’s great for apple type body shapes as it’s not too clingy and then allows you to show off your legs

The Coleen ruched sleeve jacket is similar to Dakota’s and would look lovely unbuttoned over any of those dresses above

Finish with some strappy sandals like the Love Label Scarlett ankle tie sandals, which you can tie up any way you like.

Remember, the Twilight premiere is 7 July. We can’t wait!
