Dakota Fanning, who recently confessed that she and 13-year-old sister Elle are “fashion equals,” strikes a seductive pose on the February cover of
Elle UK
— just don’t call her out for it.

“You can’t worry about what other people think, especially if you’re a known person, or sometimes you won’t be able to get out of bed,” she tells the mag. Case in point: her very first day at NYU, where she is a freshman, the 17-year-old selected a pleated skirt, velvet Marni shoes, black knee socks and an asymmetrical Alexander Wang sweater.

And while studying may take precedence over red carpet preening these days, Dakota doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight with her little sis (though she does mind sharing closets). “Usually it’s her sitting in pajamas waving goodbye as I go off someplace,” she says. “But this last year it’s been me home by myself in sweatpants, saying ‘Bye Elle’ as she goes off somewhere all dressed up.”
