'Finally 19!!!' an excited Dakota Fanning told her Instagram followers today. Yes, the blonde actress is celebrating her 19th birthday and in celebration, she shared a snap of herself looking simply divine wearing a white lace dress and pink clutch with a cluster of flowers adorning her lap.
Dakota is certainly blooming into a style icon Grazia Daily adores. Since starting her career at the tender age of seven, the star has evolved from the adorable cutie who popped up on red carpets in frothy dresses to a top-notch actress who can call on some of the world's biggest designers. We've seen her develop a fondess for all things Valentino and is often turning to the dramatic delights of Marchesa. She's also become a FROW regular at New York Fashion Week and rocked up at the 2013 CFDA Awards arm in arm with designer Jason Wu.
And let's not forget she makes up half of a most excellent styling sibling duo with her little sister Elle. The pair have admitted to raiding each others' wardrobes and were recently spotted in South Korea wearing matching kitten ear hats - and as the Middletons will tell you, there's nothing better than sisterly style.
Dakota challenged her good girl image when Marc Jacobs cast her as the face of his perfume, Oh Lola. The campaign saw the 17-year-old blonde posed in a rather, err, suggestive position leading it to be quickly banned. Ooops. Her next film role sees her starring alongside Elizabeth Olsen in Very Good Girl about two girls who make a pact to lose their virginity on their first summer out of high school and if rumours are to be believed, she goes totally starkers.
Yes, the Georgia-born gal who won our hearts playing Sean Penn's precocious daughter in 2001's I Am Sam is all grown-up. See her evolving style in the gallery below...
