Dakota Fanning Just Slayed the Venice Film Fest Carpet in a Dress That Was Fit for a Mermaid
While celebs like Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne were rocking rainbow styles at Burning Man, Dakota Fanning (who has been giving us serious style inspo as of late with her rose gold sunnies) was busy slaying the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in a sequined Miu Miu number that was fit for a mermaid.
On hand to promote her new film, Brimstone, all eyes were on the starlet as she swept down the carpet in the light blue holographic sequined gown, and we can’t say we blame them!
The dress was so gorgeous, in fact, that Dakota herself couldn’t keep her hands off it.
In an Instagram video we can’t quite seem to quit, she runs her hand over the gown’s iridescent scales, captivating us with their shining light. “Strokin’ the tail,” she wrote, along with a nod to her seriously gorge @neillanejewelry rings.
By the end of the night, it was clear the she had adapted to her new under-the-sea-themed life (cell phone included): “I became one with the dress. #mermaid.”
Shine on, Dakota. Shine on.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
