    My guess is that she didn’t style herself for the shoot and probably didn’t have much choice in what she wore. And she’s probably still under contract with Marc Jacobs and thus doesn’t want to harm her image. AND she’s been a child actor for so long she’s used to listening to and deferring to adults.

    I think it’s kind of nice that she’s willing to admit, in a hypersexualized society, to being not interested in dating right now (or even not seeing the point of dating in general). Not everyone is looking for love or sex at age 19 (or ever, really), and that’s okay.

      I think it’s fine that she doesn’t want to date now. I just feel weird when a magazine thrusts the ass of someone who has probably not made it to second base with anyone yet in my face.

    I love Dakota Fanning’s blank stare. I have her blank stare. People criticize me all the fucking time about my blank stare. Well guess what! Not everyone needs to show facial emotion to be what society considers “real.” No, I’m not saying I take offense to this article at all, in fact I love the articles of The Gloss. I just feel like defending the whole blank stare issue. In school I was constantly told “Oh my god you’re like SO emo. You like NEV-VAR smi-ullll!” And well, frankly, the girls who told me this were intrigued by their own reflection more than anything else. So keep doing your thing, Dakota Fanning! (Well actually, it’s MY thing, and how dare she take it away from me!)

      You are not an actress, though!

    Wow. She is SO photoshopped in that pic.

    I find none of these sexualized. You can’t even see the curve of a butt… Am i not looking hard enough?

    She looks beautiful, and plenty of grown ups wear Mickey Mouse tshirts. It is so non-sexual, this article is trying to hard to make a stink.

    You have hit the nail on the head.

    I think your point about the weirdness of sexualizing someone who, by her own admission, has not yet achieved her own sexual agency, is a great point, and one that ought to be made more often about media images that sexualize the young. The Marc Jacobs ad seems more predatory in light of that, doesn’t it?

    And I agree with you that she seems to use the sexy child angle. How could she possibly be unaware of it? She would have to be shuttered from advertising at large.
