Dakota Fanning Hasn’t Screwed It Up (Yet)

In the wake of Lindsay Lohan’s sentence, Miley’s slootish wardrobe and Vanessa’s nudie pics, one would almost assume that once you hit sixteen you fall apart at the seams.  It hasn’t been the case for Dakota Fanning, Marie Claire’s August cover girl.  The magazine was even clever enough to post pics and styles from her shoot (technology heyyyyyyyy).  No pressure, but the world is waiting for Fanning to screw up.  Luckily, she seems headed in the right direction (and probably has normal parents, since I’ve rarely heard anything about them).  Ain’t no doubt about it.  The sister has talent.

Fanning attends Campbell Hall in North Hollywood, the same private school where the Olsen twins matriculated.  She’s already a well-established actress at sixteen, most recently appearing as freakish child-vampire Jane in both The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Eclipse.   Fanning is composed, pretty, stylish, smart and will continue to make me feel bad about my underachieving ass.

Boo, you whore.

I’m just kidding.  Please don’t look at me with those red eyes.
