Dakota Will See You Now...

It is no secret that I am not a fan of celebrities covering fashion magazines.
But for Dakota, and for her sister Elle, I will make an exception.
There is something so appealing about them, and I do actually like reading about what new films they are working on and what designers they are wearing.
Usually celebrities are styled and photographed (and photoshopped) in the same red carpet gowns, in the same poses, every single time. I love how Dakota and Elle's photos are not the same old 'celebrity' photographs, and how stylists can take some major fashion risks on the girls, like by putting them in more high fashion runway looks and edgier styles. I also love how mature and talented they are, and how they are true actors in their films, which is incredibly refreshing.
I know the girls have quite a few films coming out this year, so may this be the first of many covers in this new year.
I am dying for Vogue US to do Dakota, which could potentially be one of Vogue US's greatest. But we will just wait and see, xx
