Dakota Fanning has grown up in the public eye since she was a baby and unlike many child actors, she’s managed to live a semi-normal life. She graces the March cover of Glamour magazine, and dishes about being single, her banned Marc Jacobs perfume ad, a potential future in fashion, and her sister Elle.

The cover and editorial, shot by Ellen von Unwerth, is very retro, with a seventies feel that we’re loving, particularly the volumnious curls that remind us of Julianne Moore in Boogie Nights.  She wears some awesome clothes we’re coveting from designers like Jonathan Sanders, Chanel, Nina Ricci, Maloles, Roberto Cavalli, Jill Stuart, Burberry, Charlotte Olympia, Christian Louboutin, Koture and Sophie Webster.  The issue hits newsstands February 5th.

On if she’s having fun with the “fashion icon moment” she and sister Elle are having now…

“It’s really fun when you’re getting dressed for something. It’s not when you’re in the rain with an umbrella and trying to carry a case of water. Yep, that’s me, alone, coming from Duane Reade. I’m not wearing a bra. Deal with it.”

On if she was surprised when her Marc Jacobs perfume ad was banned in the U.K. in 2011 for being “sexually provocative.” [In the ad Fanning sits on the floor with a large perfume bottle between her legs.]

“Yeah, I was! If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it’s also like, Why are you making it about that, you creep? I love Marc and trust him, and we just laughed about it.”

On if she’d ever turn her love of clothes into a career a fashion designer…

“I don’t think so. I mean, I won ’t rule it out, because then one day I’ll be like, “I said that in Glamour in 2013, and here I am now [with my own line].” But when you know designers and see the work that they put into making their collection, and how much passion they have for that—I think that’s so amazing. And I don’t have the passion to design clothes. It’s nice to be able to grow up and know what you want to do…. I’m reminded of that every time I make a film.”

On what little sister Elle has taught her…

“She’s very uninhibited and will try pretty much anything. Even the way she dresses— she dresses totally for herself. She risks being made fun of…by me, which I sometimes do, because I’m an older sister! But I totally admire her and think she’s very cool.”

On boys and her single status…

“Yeah. I don’t really date. 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. 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.”
