Dakota Fanning can be seen on the cover of ELLE Canada for November 2016 and now also Town & Country. On the which was shot by Victor Demarchelier, Dakora is wearing a yellow & white CHANEL RESORT 2017 sequin dress. On this occasion, I can't say that I am loving the eye make-up and you may remember that Lily-Rose Depp wore this same dress in September 2016. In the issue, she talks how she was raised, her new film, people's perception of her and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview and to see her fashion spread.

DRESS BY DIOR.
I was raised by very traditional Southern parents with Southern manners. You don't air your dirty laundry to people that aren't your family or your friends. Why would I ever want to portray myself as anything other than together?
On still sleeping in her childhood bedroom:
I had wallpaper in my room my whole life. And my mom called me, because there was a leak in the wall. She was very distressed, like, 'So, we are going to probably have to take the wallpaper down from your room. Are you okay with that?' I liked the wallpaper just fine, but, you know, I didn't have an emotional collapse because the wallpaper is going to be removed. I was like, 'Mom, just paint it.
On her new film 'American Pastoral':
I think it's really about expectation versus reality—of what you think your life is going to be and what you think other people's lives are going to be. I think it's really about breaking the idea of what people think is true.
On people's exceptions of her being perfect:
Which is fine. It is. I'm a very private person. I've been thinking lately about how much do I care what other people's preconceived notions of me are. They definitely exist. They always will, to an extent, because I've been acting for 16 years already and I'm 22.
