Despite the chilly New York weather, Dakota Fanning turned up the heat while walking to her apartment in the Big Apple on Sunday.

The 19-year-old wore a three quarter-length grey coat, a thick blue scarf, leather pants and black ankle boots -- but all that didn't seem to warm up The Runaways star in the freezing temps.

Wearing no makeup, Dakota pulled her blonde hair back in a ponytail and opted to shield her eyes from the sun with oversized sunglasses.

The California native is living in NYC while she attends New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, which gives students the opportunity to design their own curriculum.

Despite being the tender age of 19 -- the former child star has a been dating 32-year-old British model Jamie Strachan.

Despite the age difference, things are apparently serious with the couple. Last March, Dakota talked about her view on relationships and dating with Glamour magazine, saying, "I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college."

'I've always thought that's what it's supposed to be like, and if it's not, then I don't want to waste my time on it," added the Twilight Saga star.

"Even when I was 14, I was like, 'I'm not gonna marry this person. What's the point of doing it?' It's not me being naive. I just know what it's supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered."

Could the teen actress be ready for marriage already? Guess we will see!

We still think of her as the adorable little girl from I Am Sam, so it's weird seeing her acting like such a bad girl!

Dakota Fanning is tapping into her edgy side with her role in the upcoming movie Every Secret Thing, and if we didn't already know she was on-set filming, we would have assumed the teenage actress is channeling her good friend and onetime co-star Kristen Stewart with the grungy outfit and nasty smoking habit!

The flick follows the story of two 11-year-old girls who are convicted of murdering a baby and are incarcerated until they turn 18. Upon their release, children start to go missing, prompting a reopened investigation into the original murders that landed them in jail.

We can't wait to see Miss Fanning break out from her good girl image!

Dakota Fanning starred in Twilight and The Runaways with Kristen Stewart and in the process developed a close friendship with the actress, so she didn't hesitate to defend her pal in the newest InStyle magazine when the cheating scandal was brought up.

    "Everyone thinks they have the right to, you know, publicize the struggles and sadness and heartbreak and all of that. It's like, 'Why do you think you are the authority to judge people's experiences?' she explained.

When it comes to her own relationships, the award-winning star's approach is to keep her personal life private. The blonde covergirl confesses she's only had one boyfriend in her life and is currently single.

    "You know, I'm not the kind of girl or person who really wants boyfriends in my life. I'm also the kind of person... I'm very black and white in what I feel and I don't wanna be with someone that I don't foresee spending a long time with," she adds.

It's refreshing to see a child star mature in the limelight and avoid the usual pitfalls of fame!

Sister Act Dakota And Elle Fanning Cover W Mag

Nov 13, 2011 10:30 AM


Dakota Fanning, 17, and sis Elle, 13, are two of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood today but in their interviews with W magazine, they appear to be normal teenage girls who love reality TV and fashion.

fanningwcover1_230.jpgDakota recently posed for a provocative Marc Jacobs perfume ad that got plenty of criticism from conservatives and which was even pulled from British publications, but she keeps an open mind about sexuality. The college freshman, just enrolled at NYU, tells the mag she remembers her first on-screen kiss in Sweet Home Alabama when she was 7 years old, saying she wasn't nervous at all to shoot the scene. Neither was she nervous shooting the sexy fragrance campaign with celebrated photographer Terry Richardson and neither was she weirded out by starring opposite Sean Penn in her first film. The girl has nerves of steal!

And an interesting fact about her sister Elle? She still takes ballet five days a week! Elle also talks about her first trip to Paris, when she was invited to the Chanel show during Fashion Week. She said it was a dream come true and that her dream job would be shooting a film in the City of Lights.

Uh, yeah ... us too! And being a Fanning girl wouldn't be so bad either!
