Dakota Fanning amped it up for the world premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 — trading in her blonde locks for a new ravenous brunette ‘do.

The 18-year-old actress — who plays a vampire by the name of Jane in the Twilight series — opted for a vintage look as she graced the red carpet in a retro-inspired, silk teal gown, with her chocolate brown tresses pinned to the side.

Fanning joined co-stars such as Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Jackson Rathbone, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, and Nikki Reed, to host the release of the final installment of Stephenie Meyer’s ever-successful series at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday.

To support her, Fanning’s younger sis Elle, 14, joined her for the big night, along with fans across the globe who came out for the star-studded event.
