Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen on the set of ‘Very Good Girls’ in New York City

‘Very Good Girls’ is written and directed by Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s mom, Naomi Foner. Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen play NYC best friends who make a pact to lose their virginity the summer after they graduate high school.

Of course the friends fall for the same boy, played by Boyd Holbrook (Hollywood’s upcoming star, he’s already signed on to star in several movies).

The girls were caught filming on the streets of NYC this week, riding bicycles and eating candy. Dakota, 18, and Elizabeth, 23, will also be joined by Demi Moore in the film.

Can’t wait!

Dakota Fanning tackles a dying 17-year-old in her new film, ‘Now is Good’

Dakota Fanning is no stranger to playing darker, deeper roles. Now the 18-year-old actress is taking on a even more serious role than normal, that of a dying 17-year-old girl.

In ‘Now is Good’, Dakota plays a dying cancer patient and sports an English accent. The film, based on the 2007 YA novel Before I Die, Fanning’s a 17-year-old leukemia patient who decides to waive treatment as her condition gets worse in order to live life to the fullest.

War Horse’s Jeremy Irvine co-stars as the boy Fanning falls in love with.

Film is due later this year.

Here are some new pictures of Dakota Fanning arriving at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, NY.

Are Marc Jacob’s new Lola ads featuring Dakota Fanning too provocative?

17-year-old Dakota Fanning is the new face of Marc Jacob’s fragrance Lola. (Lola is my absolute FAVORITE fragrance!)

She is completely clothed, but the ad is making many people upset. Could it have something to do with the flower resting on her lady bits?

At just 17, Dakota Fanning is still a year under the legal age of consent in her home state of California, but this trifling fact doesn’t seem to concern Marc Jacobs. The 48-year-old designer chose to place the teenager in a provocative pose – in homage to a 1950s novel about sex with an under age girl – to sell his new perfume, Oh, Lola!

Jacobs’ long-term collaborator Juergen Teller shot the Twilight star in Los Angeles wearing a girlish, pink scalloped polka dot dress. The background, is similarly juvenile – it’s monotone pastel pink compounding the innocence of the composition. But then a large bottle of the scent, featuring it’s signature rose-top has been placed provocatively in between the young starlet’s legs. The teenager clutches it as she tilts back lasciviously and stares intently into the camera.

New Yorker Jacobs admits that his intention was to portray the young woman as a re-boot of the tragic character in Vladimir Nabokov’s 1955 novel, Lolita, which tells the story of young girl’s sexual relationship with a much older man, who becomes her step-father.

He told Women’s Wear Daily: ‘When we were speaking about who to use in the ads, I had recently seen The Runaways…I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet.’

The iconic novel tells the story of sexual predator Humbert Humbert and his exploitation of his ‘Lolita’ from the age of 12.

Ironically, this is the age at which Dakota first posed for the successful designer.

The pull of Jacobs is so strong that Fanning admitted she was: ‘humbled by the offer and said yes immediately.’ Dakota recently graduated from high school and joined her peers to receive her diploma. She attended classes at the $30,000 a year private school in North Hollywood and last year was crowned Homecoming Queen. But despite her Hollywood career Dakota insists that she is a down-to-earth normal teenager.

She said: ‘I have such a normal life when I’m not working… It’s just nice to be around people you care about and who know you best.’

What do you think? Are they inappropriate?
