Hot or Not? Dakota Fanning Goes from Blonde to Brunette
Dakota Fanning debuted new brunette locks over the weekend. Love it or hate, Bettys?
Though both Dakota Fanning and her younger sister, Elle, are known for their shiny blonde locks, Dakota is no stranger to switching up her hair color—and hey, look! She’s gone brunette!
Dakota debuted her new shade on Instagram a few days ago along with the message, “Well, look who turned into a brunette!” Since she’s currently a student at NYU, we can probably assume that the pic was snapped somewhere in New York City.
This isn’t the first time we’ve ever seen her with a chestnut-colored man; she went way, way dark for the 2005 thriller Hide and Seek. She was about 11 years old at the time, though, so this is the first time we’ve seen the look on her as an adult.
So: What do you think, Bettys? Do you love Dakota’s new hair color, or should she stick to blonde? I’m not wild about it, but I love the whole classic college student vibe she has going on here with the big comfy scarf (it’s been getting cold here lately) and the specs perched on her head. Hoorah for higher education!
Dakota, by the way, doesn’t have a Twitter account; she mentioned back in April that “it’s just not for me.” As she put it, “I really don’t need to let people know where I am and what I’m doing. I feel like a lot of people want their privacy but yet they tell people where they are…. I don’t have a Facebook or Twitter and I won’t ever. There’s plenty of imposters out there. There’s enough Dakota Fannings on Twitter for all of us.” Good to know that we can add her to our list of awesome celeb Instagram users, though!
Tell us: Love Dakota’s new look or hate it?
