Dakota Fanning is home for the holidays!
The Runaways star displayed a makeup-free (and a noticeably fuller) face, as she touched down in LA Thursday night, looking a bit tired after her six-hour flight.
Not only is Fanning currently enrolled in her first year at NYU, she also has FOUR movie coming out next year!
The 17-year-old will appear in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, Effie with Emma Thompson, The Motel Life, and Now Is Good.
Looks like 2012 will be Dakota's year to shine!
Fanning was recently embroiled in a bit of controversy, after her Marc Jacobs perfume advertisement for the fragrance "Lola" was banned in the UK for 'sexualising a child.'
