Dakota Johnson In The Vampire’s Wife – Intimissimi New York Grand Opening

Dakota Johnson attended the grand opening of Intimissimi in New York on Wednesday (October 18).

As we all know Dakota loves all things Gucci, however, her second favourite brand appears to be The Vampire’s Wife, along with a host of celebrities including Sienna Miller.

The actress wore their signature ‘Cate’ dress possessing a fun, youthful feel which extended to her fur and feather festooned bag and Chloe Gosselin sandals.

I love how the iridescent fabric is so radiant in under the lights and how the ruffles contour the frock for a truly feminine flourish.

You haven’t been that taken by some of The Vampire’s Wife’s outings so far, so do you rate this look?

Dakota Johnson In Proenza Schouler – ‘Call Me by Your Name’ New York Film Festival Screening

Dakota Johnson attended the screening of ‘Call Me by Your Name’ during the 55th New York Film Festival on Tuesday (October 3), which saw her not wear Gucci for the first time since May 2017.

She is a great ambassador for Alessandro Michele, however, this was the first time in a while (perhaps this year) that I’ve felt truly excited by Dakota on the red carpet.

Perhaps it’s the unpredictability of this Proenza Schouler Spring 2018 dress oozing plenty of flare with its cascading ruffled and sensual bustier layer or the freshness of it all.

Simple styling which included the Proenza Schouler ‘Curl’ clutch, Manolo Blahnik sandals and Mizuki earrings plus a red pout provided the finishing touches.

Dakota Johnson In Gucci – Green Carpet Fashion Awards

Dakota Johnson joined Zoe Saldana for the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia on Sunday (September 24) in Milan, Italy.

I loved her last Gucci look, so I was delighted to see her wearing the label again here—albeit, in a completely different capacity.

While we’ve lately been associating the Italian design house with head-spinning prints, none of those punchy patterns had a place in this semi-sheer tulle gown that had an air of elegant fantasy about it.

The starburst bra cups were the one element that gave me pause, but I couldn’t help but love the inky, mesmerizing layers of the gown that drifted about her—with the faint twinkle of embellishment throughout.

I did feel like something was missing—and then I remembered it was her bangs, which she brushed back in favour of a more formal look, perhaps.

Front Row @ Gucci Spring 2018

As we might expect, the front row at the Gucci Spring 2018 show on Wednesday (September 20) during Milan Fashion Week was awash in a head-turning mix of bold prints and bright patterns from the label.

Dakota Johnson:
Starting the front row off with a bang, Dakota easily had one of my favoured looks in this colourful, pleated dress. I love the retro-forward, geometric print and the alluringly artsy mix of hues. The dragon-embroidered bag wouldn’t have been my first choice, though, for this look as it seemed so disparate from the mod mood.

Salma Hayek: Salma’s dress stood out for its prominent lack of pattern. But, it still charmed with the modern-Victorian lace detail and girlie bow at the waist that was very much in keeping with the star’s style.

Li Yuchun/Chris Lee: Never one to do fashion by halves, the entertainer presented a full-on fashion experience here. The cape may have been ‘Blind for Love,’ but I for one, don’t know where to look first between the Gucci signature print T-shirt, intricately patterned skirt, knee socks, and booties—not to mention the ear muffs. This was a performance piece, if nothing else.

Gucci Cruise 2018 Front Row

The front row at the Gucci Cruise 2018 fashion show which took lace a the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy yesterday (May 29) was filled with famous faces, and some incredibly fashion-forward outfits.

Kirsten Dunst: Fresh from her successful Cannes adventure, the actress was still in the mood to embrace colour wearing a Gucci Spring 2017 two-piece, with the skirt being the standout feature. We don’t often see Kirsten rock bold patterns, so this added a fun element to her look.

Donald Glover: The ‘Atlanta’ star is a man of many talents; now he can add snappy dresser to the list too. You couldn’t help but notice him as his outfit was the perfect combination of comfort and style. There is nothing better than a bold floral shirt on a fella, especially when tempered with a cool navy shorts and white leather Gucci ‘Ace’ sneakers. However, it’s that wide-brimmed hat that really sells this look.

Dakota Johnson: Proving that she is definitely ready for spring, Datoka’s black halterneck Gucci Fall 2017 dress with bright pink patterns was the epitome of laid-back but chic. I love how the accessories brightened the look further.
