Dakota Fanning Visits NYC, Lands New Fragrance Gig

Posted Monday June 13, 2011 6:56 PM GMT

Freshly graduated from high school studies, Dakota Fanning has opted to kick off the summer with a trip to New York City.

The "Eclipse" actress was spotted trying to hail down a taxi cab as she and her former pro tennis player mom, Joy, headed out to to enjoy an evening on the town in the Big Apple.

Meanwhile, Miss Fanning has landed herself another new gig - with the latest endeavor seeing Dakota named as the face of designer Marc Jacobs' new fragrance Oh, Lola.

Saying that he picked Fanning because she's "seductive and sweet" like his perfume, Jacobs added, "I've been a big fan of Dakota since the first time I saw her in a movie. When we were speaking about who to use in the Oh, Lola fragrance ads - I had recently seen The Runaways. Dakota was in it, and I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet."

Happy about the offer, a humbled Dakota told WWD, "Every time one of Marc's fragrances comes out I run to the store to buy it. The moment I was asked to be a part of the Oh, Lola campaign, I was so humbled and said 'yes' immediately."
