There are things, like the hair colour, not matching how I saw it when I was reading the book, but like you the eye makeup is a bit much. Dakota is a pretty girl, but that makeup she has on so doesn't work for the character.

IMO, the movie needs to find someone else in the H&M department. There's only so much a person can take.
Exactly.

I know some people think the black-lined eyes are supposed to make Dakota look more evil, but I think the red contacts do a pretty good job of that on their own. Too much extraneous stuff is overkill.

I agree about the H&M team. Especially after Jackson's horrible wig in NM. Yuck.
I shudder at the thought of what they're going to put on Kristen, since she'll need a wig for Eclipse. It better look damn good.

I can't get over that they left her hair blonde! We aren't THAT dumb! What do they think we won't notice?

^^ That's funny, because she's clearly described as having light brown hair.

Yes, I'm aware of that... but just because the author says a character looks a certain way doesn't mean our imaginations work the same. I guess they describe her as chid-like so often and I must subconsciously correlate blonde with innocence/child? Who knows :)

I think Dakota looks great as Jane. She has the seriousness to pull of the role i think. Whenever i read the books before Twilight even turned into a movie I always imagined Dakota as Jane anyway...

I always imagened Jane as a blonde and looking very much like Dakota Fanning.
I normally don't like celebs being casted for roles like this, but she lies so close to what I pictured I'm very curious about it.

I think she'll do a good job. She's one of my favorite child actresses. And her ending line in the 3rd NM trailer is delivered really good, IMO.

Dakota is a fantastic actress! She is so incredibly talented (my fave child star in Hollywood)... She'll be great as Jane! She looks so creepy on the pics and in the trailers (and yet so pretty)! I so can't wait to see her! :)
