Dakota Fanning is a wonderful actress and extremely pretty to boot. She and her sister Elle have the world of couture at their feet and usually have effortless chic down to a fine art. However, this photo of Dakota in ripped jeans doesn't past muster for me, I'm afraid. Dakota Fanning is of course, not the first nor the only star who can appear less than chic while out on occasion.
In the glam world of The Hollywood of yesteryear, the stars then would never be seen out in public dressed in any way other than immaculate. Why the urge nowadays to be 'casual'? Is it in an effort to appear more approachable to the public, more in tune with today's young or are they just 'off' days? I have no doubt that some people, who can afford to dress better, dress in ragged clothing to appear somehow nonchalant about their wealth. But being in the public eye demands that you maintain high standards, or so I thought.
