Most Underrated 2015 – Dakota Johnson

Most Underrated 2015 – Dakota Johnson2

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.

Christian Dior Cruise 2016 Front Row

Christian Dior Cruise 2016 Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2016 was held on Monday (May 11) at ‘Palais Bulle – Bubble Palace,’ which overlooks the water in the French Riviera, France. A group of Dior-donning darlings were in attendance to take in the latest collection from designer Raf Simons.

Marion Cotillard: The face of Lady Dior wore a Dior Haute Couture printed black and white wool coat, accessorized with fun Dior platform shoes, a ‘Diorama’ blue handbag, and Dior sunglasses. While the structured coat itself was a more sophisticated and demure piece, the styling added a sassy spirit especially given the leggy silhouette, her messy pompadour updo, and coral-pink lip. I do like the modern direction in which she was going, even if the execution wasn’t perfect at every angle.

Dakota Fanning
: Dressed in a Dior Fall 2015 grey silk leather satin dress with Dior black pumps, the starlet stepped out in a girly, feminine look that had a distinctly youthful party flair.

Dakota Fanning In Versace – ‘Every Secret Thing’ New York Film Critic Series Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Versace - 'Every Secret Thing' New York Film Critic Series Premiere

Dakota Fanning attended the New York Film Critic Series premiere of ‘Every Secret Thing’ at AMC Empire 25 theatre, on Monday (April 27,) in New York City.

Switching up her hairstyle on this rare occasion, the actress wore a Versace Spring 2015 ’60s inspired look with a relaxed fit, which gives the dress a playful feel.

Even with the pop of colour, I feel totally unmoved by this look, which could be in part due to the heavy Guiseppe Zanotti pumps. I would’ve been considerably more excited about this look with the runway heels.

Dakota Fanning In Zac Posen – ‘Franny’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Zac Posen - 'Franny' Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning attended the premiere of ‘Franny’ during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival at BMCC Tribeca PAC on Friday (April 17) in New York City.

Channeling a more girly silhouette, the starlet wore a Zac Posen Spring 2015 ballet-pink frock that was reminiscent of a shrunken, princess ballgown.

The dress was nearly too precious for my taste, but the quirkier metallic-gold platform shoes and bright beet-red lip cut through the super-sweet flavour for a charming-cool finish.

Dakota Fanning In Theory – IWC Schaffhausen’s ‘For the Love of Cinema’ Dinner

Dakota Fanning In Theory - IWC Schaffhausen's 'For the Love of Cinema' Dinner

Dakota Fanning attended the IWC Schaffhausen third annual ‘For the Love of Cinema’ dinner, during Tribeca Film Festival at Spring Studios, on Thursday (April 16) in New York City.

Carving out quiet sophistication with refined poise, the actress wore a Theory ‘Lilita’ blue suede pinafore dress from the Spring 2015 collection.

Plain yet striking in its criss-cross open-back design, I love how this look was imbued with a hint of cool-girl charm via her patent leather blue Proenza Schouler clutch, metallic silver sandals and feline eyes.

Dakota Fanning In Wes Gordon – ‘Effie Gray’ New York Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Wes Gordon - 'Effie Gray' New York Premiere

Dakota Fanning attended the premiere of her film ‘Effie Gray’ at The Paris Theatre in New York City yesterday (March 30).

Looking very Dakota-esque, the star wore a simple, lilac-colored Wes Gordon slip dress accented with a few well-placed Tiffany & Co. diamond bangles.

Dakota knows the art of understated elegance, and embodies that perfectly with this look.

I would be remiss not to mention that although ever-so-slight, Dakota has mixed things up a bit with her hair. Gone are her ever-present dark roots, and by parting it slightly to the side and blow-drying with the ends curled under and some body in the crown, those baby-blonde locks are more elegant and demure than ever.

Glowing skin, shimmery shadow underneath her eyes and watermelon-stained lips finish a lovely look.
