Dakota Johnson skyrocketed onto the scene thanks to her role in the hotly anticipated, boundaries-pushing ‘50 Shades of Grey’ film.
Early on, the starlet’s style captured my attention. While some perhaps found her monochromatic palette during the ‘Grey’ promo tour rather uninspiring, I couldn’t have been more intrigued by the striking, minimalistic appeal that always bloomed with a touch of the romantic.
The chic streak continued after her movie duties, and she duly coloured outside the lines, pushing her once-black-and-white ensembles into even more vibrant territory.
She’s worn a veritable alphabet of designers—Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Chanel, Christian Dior, all the way to Gucci, Michael Kors, Saint Laurent, and more—and she’s donned everything from elegant long gowns, glitzy disco-ball frocks, and a notable goldenrod, bow-accented dress that only she could wear with such panache.
While some may have only seen a gray area with Dakota’s style, she was the dark horse of the red carpet, quietly captivating in an eclectic mashup of looks that proved she’s no one-trick pony.
