Dakota Fanning is Marie Claire Cute

Dakota Fanning shimmers in a 3.1 Phillip Lim top as her hair goes wild in this new shot from the August 2010 issue of Marie Claire magazine.

The 16-year-old actress opened up about be watched carefully by Hollywood, changing her baby blues and even hear what BFF Kristen Stewart thought of her. Check it:

Kristen on how impressed with Dakota she initially was: “Dakota is so unfaultingly steady. In most cases, I feel like she’s older than me. It’s only when she starts talking about boys that I remember how young she is.

On her crystal clear eyes going to blood red: “It’s something that’s always been there for me, that I have huge blue eyes — it’s been something that people have always talked about. But I enjoyed the red. You’re automatically transformed into a creature when you put those red eyes in.”

On growing up in front of Hollywood’s eyes: “When you start out young, people get really attached to who you are at 6 years old. I hope that The Runaways was kind of a moment to be like, ‘You know, I’m not that young little girl anymore, but I’m still not all grown up, either.’”

FYI: Dakota also graces the cover of Flare magazine.

The August 2010 issue of Marie Claire hits stands NEXT Tuesday, July 13th.

    i never thought she was anything special but this chick has grown on me! she seems very… real. very mature and intelligent, but there is still some modesty there. she doesn’t try hard like many other teen actresses

    Oh my gosh, HER HAIR! It looks like it’s fully electrically charged, like she’s standing right next to a Van de Graaff generator. Could that be her style in observation of Nikola Tesla’s birthday this Saturday? Gee, Google could almost use that picture of Dakota for its logo celebrating Tesla on that day.

    Could her head be that packed with energy, that her hair stands out like that? Just what have they been filling her head with at school?

    No kidding, Dakota, you look so great! Luv u
