Dakota Fanning Lands ELLE UK February 2012

The New Year is looking bright for Dakota Fanning, especially since she’s ELLE UK's February 2012 cover girl.

The “I Am Sam” hottie looks fabulous as she posed for photographer David Slijper while clad in a Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 dress (subscriber edition) and a baby blue Prada ensemble (newsstand edition) on the front of the magazine.

In a recent interview, Dakota confessed that her sister Elle was the more stylish of the two of them. “She’s the go-to fashion person in the family. Elle knows every single model, every single collection, every single piece from every single collection. She has a real passion, and it’s not at all in a materialistic way. She genuinely appreciates the workmanship and creativity.”

And it seems Dakota and Elle have different expectations on sisterly sharing of clothes. “As far as I’m concerned, there’s a no-closet-sharing policy, but as far as Elle is concerned…I’ll go in my room, and there will be clothes on the floor, clothes missing, clothes that are now in her closet. Last summer, I was in London working on a film, and I was looking online and these pictures came up on my homepage. She was in my hat, my dress, my shoes. I called her up and was like, ‘I caught you! They photographed you wearing all my stuff. Put it back!’”
