Dakota Fanning, Cosmopolitan

Dakota Fanning, CosmopolitanDakota Fanning, Cosmopolitan, Puhleeze! Can the prudes who are in a tizzy over almost 18-year-old Dakota Fanning appearing on the February cover of American Cosmopolitan please get their knickers out of a knot?

Cosmopolitan is, by far, the largest women’s magazine in the entire world. I can assure you that millions of 17-year-old women read it without incident. I know this as both the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan and as a mother of a 21-year-old daughter.

Dakota, with her stellar acting career and great attitude, definitely qualifies as the magazine’s “Fun, Fearless Female of the Year!”

But out-of-touch critics are attacking the magazine for putting Dakota on the cover because she doesn’t turn 18 until Feb. 23rd. Their beef is that while they admit Dakota is actually in a very demure evening gown on the cover, she is surrounded by Cosmo’s typically sxy cover lines.

“Cosmopolitan is going overboard by putting an underage girl on its cover surrounded by such article titles,” so-called media expert Rachelle Friberg groused to FOX411′s Pop Tarts column. “It is one thing to educate young women about sex and their bodies, but putting a young, underage girl on the cover of a magazine that had long been known to push the limits is sending “the wrong message.”
