Dakota Fanning in Louis Vuitton | 2012 MET Gala

Dakota Fanning in Louis Vuitton | 2012 MET GalaPhotos: Dakota Fanning Fan
While last year she was joined by her younger sister, Dakota Fanning rolled up to the red carpet solo tonight for the 2012 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing a custom Louis Vuitton gown.

The “Now Is Good” actress looked lovely in a lavender organza gown; the tulle jupon was covered in organza and embroidered with flowers made of hand stitched organza ribbons.

Fun Fact: Dakota’s dress took over 250 hours to create!

With purple metallic lacquered nails, Dakota accessorized accordingly with matching sandals and a silk lavender minaudière with old metal finishing.

She wore jewelry by Fred Leighton — which included Art Nouveau enamel flowers pinned in her hair! I was so glad to see that she did something different with her straight tresses — even if it was a minor adjustment.

Tell me what you thought about Dakota’s look tonight in the comments below!
