Actress Dakota fanning turns 18 years old today, February 23rd. Happy birthday, Dakota! The Now is Good actress was most recently spotted in New York City, where she attends New York University.
According to a report from Just Jared, Dakota looked very trendy in a pink wool coat, black leggings and black ankle-high boots, as she made her way through the city. With her big black sunglasses on, she easily blended in with other NYU students and NYC passersby. But that's how Dakota has always rolled.
Never one to expect special treatment, Dakota even returned home to her own high school for prom and graduation last June before heading to New York to start college. She has always tried to be a 'normal' teenager despite the notoriety she has achieved as an actress. She has starred in the Twilight films and with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart in Runaways.
Dakota Fanning was also seen recently at the Proenza Schouler Fall 2012 fashion show last week, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. While there she sported a neoprene leaf dress and wedge slingback sandals designed by Proenza Schouler.

Do you love how Dakota just blends in with any situation she finds herself in? Whether she's acting on set, shopping in New York City or running to get to class on time on the NYU campus, she just wants to be treated like any other 18-year-old girl.
While it's uncertain exactly what Dakota is doing to celebrate her 18th birthday, hopefully she's surrounded by close friends and family members. And it probably won't be some kind of lavish, celebrity-type ordeal.
