Former child star Dakota Fanning is starting her freshman year at NYU, but don’t expect her to dress like a typical sloppy student.
“If you ever catch me in sweatpants in class, that’s not good,” the 17-year-old actress joked to People during NYC's Fashion Week. “I’ve tried not to dress like that.”
Well, she is a movie star.
Dakota recently relocated from Los Angeles to the Big Apple for college, and she’s enjoying the freedom.
“Going to college is a bit different than going back to high school,” she shared. “You can kind of wear whatever you want, and I had a uniform in high school.”
We imagine designer pal Marc Jacobs may help out in the wardrobe department; Fanning is the face of his brand’s new fragrance, Oh, Lola!
