Little Dakota Fanning is All Grown Up
By PopEater Staff Posted Feb 23rd 2010 07:24AM
In our hearts, Dakota Fanning is still that precocious youngster in a tutu, prancing around with Brittany Murphy in 'Uptown Girls.' But we guess it's time to admit our little girl is all grown up. The actress turns sixteen today, with a classy dinner party to show for it. Fanning celebrated the big event at Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills, but lest you think she's too sophisticated for her own good, PEOPLE reports that the guest list included Fanning's cheerleading squad.
"Dakota looked adorable in a white blouse with a sequined, silver skirt and high heels," an eyewitness told the magazine. "She seemed very excited and touched about celebrating her special day with her family and friends."
In attendance was Cherie Currie, lead vocalist of The Runaways -- and the character Fanning portrays in an upcoming movie of the same name. The singer gave Fanning a guitar sculpture, which she carved from a solid piece of wood.
"She looked like she was having fun and was really cool," an onlooker told E! News. "She was talking to her friends and laughing all night."
