I can never tell – are hipsters a regional thing? We had them in certain parts of Atlanta, and there are definitely as many of them as you could ever want in New York, and even my little college town had a fair number because it had a big music scene. But out there, away from the vegan restaurants and the American Apparel franchises, are hipsters a thing that you see, or just that you hear about in vague terms? I can’t tell. If you’ve never examined a hipster up close and personal, though, take a look at Dakota Fanning and you’ll see all you need to see.
Dakota is young, rich and interested in fashion, so she could have gone one of two ways – the tragic Lindsay Lohan route or the quasi-Olsen Twin route, and so far, it looks like she’s trying to take the Olsen path towards success. The tough thing about that path, though, is that it has so many potential fashion disasters along the way for people who aren’t as stylistically intuitive. I like Dakota’s white Celine Luggage Tote, of course, and her Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Keepall isn’t bad, but…everything else going on with that outfit has to go. All of it.
