It feels like it was just yesterday when Dakota Fanning starred in I Am Sam. The young actress is now all grown-up, and her always prim and proper look seemed to have changed as well.
On Monday, the 20-year-old actress surprised many when she walked the black carpet at the 18th Annual Accessories Council Excellence (ACE) Awards in a crochet net dress that left little to the imagination. A removable sheer organza lining is actually included in the purchase of the dress, but Dakota chose to go without it and instead revealed her black bralet and ’60s pinup underwear. She styled the outfit with a black-and-white fringed clutch and black strappy sandals. The entire ensemble was from Proenza Schouler’s spring 2015 collection.

Fortunately, Dakota didn’t appear vulgar despite the revealing dress, thanks to her minimal makeup and blond locks that were simply styled in a straight do.
She completed her ensemble with a pair of Proenza Schouler sandals that feature triple wide straps across the uppers, ankle straps, open toes, cobalt blue soles, and block heels that measure about 4.3 inches.
These shoes are not yet available online, though. You’re lucky if you were able to pre-order them at Moda Operandi.
