She’s been busy filming director Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Los Angeles of late.

But it seems Dakota Fanning has had a change of venue.

The 24-year-old actress was spotted laughing her head off as she and a pal pulled an empty hotel luggage cart across a parking lot in New York City on Thursday.

Beating the heat: Dakota Fanning wore a slinky negligee style slip dress in New York City on Thursday

The Alienist star went bra-free on the hot day and wore a  simple cream slip dress that reached to below her knees with flip-flops on her feet.

Dakota left her long blonde hair to cascade over one shoulder and she protected her eyes from the bright sunlight with a pair of pink-rimmed, cat-eye shades.

Her gal pal, who pushed the trolley from behind,wore a cute blue summer dress with a bell-shaped short sleeves.

She smoothed her long brunette tresses back into a ponytail and wore flip-flops like Dakota.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, also starring Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, Damian Lewis, Margot Robbie and Luke Perry, is due out on July 26.

The film’s storyline, set against the backdrop of the Manson Family murders, casts Leo and Brad as Hollywood has-beens looking for a way back on top in the 1960s.

The two actors respectively play a ‘former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double,’ Deadline quoted Quentin as saying.

‘Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But [Leo’s character] Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor… Sharon Tate.’

Dakota is playing Manson Family member Squeaky Fromme.

Meanwhile, she will reunite with her Alienist co-stars Daniel Bruhl and Luke Evans for a sequel to the TNT series called The Angel of Darkness.
