Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent – 2015 Oscars

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent - 2015 Oscars

Dakota Johnson captured many a stare on the red carpet of the 2015 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 22) in Hollywood, California.

Finally breaking her black and white sartorial streak, the ’50 Shades of Grey’ starlet couldn’t have picked a more ravishing way to do so.

Her Saint Laurent embellished red column gown was a revelation that was still in keeping with her simple, unpretentious style, just taken up a few notches.

In addition to the bold colour, the power of the dress was in the asymmetric shoulder embellishment, structural bodice, and a thigh-high slit at the side to fulfill her characteristic, subtle sultry appeal.

Without a hint of try-hard, she balanced the jeweled detail of the dress with a Forevermark diamonds cuff on the opposing wrist, finishing the look with a simple ponytail and matching red lipstick.

Dakota Johnson In Oscar de la Renta – Late Show With David Letterman

Dakota Johnson In Oscar de la Renta - Late Show With David Letterman

Dakota Johnson stopped by the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ on Tuesday (February 17) in New York City, where she could have easily stopped traffic in her striking ensemble.

The ’50 Shades of Grey’ actress stayed true to her black and white streak, combining the two colours here to impactful effect.

The eye-catching nature of her Oscar de la Renta Spring 2015 gingham ensemble is undeniable, and I love the graphic impact of the exploded chequerboard patterning, which ironically fades to grey throughout.

Because the look was so strong, she kept her accessories to a minimum with strappy black sandals and a simple wrist cuff.

With the classic coat and knee-length skirt paired with a sultry black corset, the ultimate effect is one of prim sexiness and a perfect representation for her—and her film. Would you agree?

Julianne Moore & Dakota Johnson In BOSS – BOSS Fall 2015 Front Row

Julianne Moore & Dakota Johnson In BOSS - BOSS Fall 2015 Front Row

While the front row at Michael Kors was full of colour and print, things were very different at the BOSS Fall 2015 show, which was presented during New York Fashion Week on Wednesday (February 18) in New York City.

Julianne Moore: Staking her claim as the reigning queen of all things black, the actress selected a luxe wool overcoat I want to own right now, with a simple black dress oozing the elegance and simplicity of a BOSS woman. Her accessories really helped cap off a stellar look. This is perhaps one of my favourite looks this fashion week.

Dakota Johnson: The actress, whose promo tour has consisted of only black and white, kept that theme going, adding a touch of grey to her look via a BOSS wool coat. Like Julianne, the look was also chic but in a much more relaxed manner. If Julianne’s look was to be labelled Editor-in-Chief, Dakota would be Deputy editor.

Dakota Johnson In Sonia Rykiel – SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

Dakota Johnson In Sonia Rykiel - SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ had the biggest Presidents’ Day box-office opening in history, so Dakota Johnson was in great spirits attending the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration held at Rockefeller Plaza on Sunday (February 15) in New York City.

Having stuck to a strict black or white colour palette during her promo tour, on this occasion she opted for festive silver sparkles, wearing a striped sequin Sonia Rykiel frock styled with silver Gianvito Rossi sandals, which sees her not shying away from the spotlight.

I know some of you aren’t that impressed with her style, calling it stale and boring, while other will say it’s has been elegant and classic, but I love how on this occasion she appears to be having more fun.

My only irritation is the coat. Had I not seen other pictures of her sans furry coat I would’ve assumed that it was attached to her dress.

With so many gowns on this red carpet, I love the party pizzazz and high-fashion glamour she brought to the table.

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent – ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ London Premiere

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent - 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' London Premiere
Dakota Johnson swept onto the scene at the London premiere of ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ at Odeon Leicester Square today (February 12) in England.

She continued her black and white streak, this time selecting a Saint Laurent plunge-front gown with a hint of delicate embellishment at the bodice and a slight flowing train for added impact.

While the gown is simple in spirit, nodding to a languid and lovely Grecian silhouette, it does radiate a soft and innocent smolder as we would expect.

Sidney Garber jewels and a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch quietly complete the minimalistic statement, with a bold magenta lip adding the bolder punch of the look.

Here she maintains her sleek and graceful edge with an unforced sultry appeal—would you agree?
