Dakota Johnson In Gucci – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Dakota Johnson certainly didn’t shy away from fashion risks last night, and wore a Gucci gown and Gucci clutch for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

While her ceremony look had major 80s throwback elements, this gown also speaks to the big bows and bold accoutrements of the decade.

However, while her unique ceremony look won me over with its editorial prowess, I just can’t get on board this time around.

That peach bow is just so prominent. And seemingly frozen in place to look like it has movement.

I just can’t. Can you?

Dakota Johnson In Alexander McQueen – ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ London Premiere

Following the ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Madrid premiere, Dakota Johnson’s next stop was London this evening (February 9).

The actress wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 21017 gown which was equal parts romantic and equal parts moody.

Usually a lined gown loses some of its appeal, however, in this case the feeling is quite the opposite; as it provides a canvas in which the sea creatures design really comes alive.

One again the nonchalant elegance is really working for me here as she appears so effortless.

Dakota Johnson In Gucci – ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Madrid Premiere

Dakota Johnson attended ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ (Cincuenta Sombras Mas Oscuras) premiere at the Kinepolis cinema on Wednesday (February 8, 2017) in Madrid, Spain.

We knew a Gucci gown would make an appearance during this promo tour, but did you expect this ruffled soft-rose Pre-Fall 2017 gown?

Perhaps yes, as Alessandro Michele’s Gucci girl is all about retro glam which this look possesses in abundance.

My first thought was, “why didn’t she wear her hair up?”, but the slightly tousled, unkempt natural look perfectly embodies the relaxed vibe she was going for.

I think a updo would’ve been unnecessarily fussy here.

Dakota Johnson In Saint Laurent – ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Hamburg Premiere

Dakota Johnson continues to promote her highly anticipated ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ film, attending the premiere in Hamburg, Germany on Tuesday (February 7).

While the actress donned a black sequin gown by Saint Laurent, the dark look still shone rather brightly due to the light-catching, all-over glitz.

And while the silhouette may have appeared demure at first glance, a thigh-high slit at the side as well as a cutout in the back assured that the dress still oozed with sultriness.

A red lip rounded out the glam look that was just asking for a sleeker ’do. But her messier bun did contribute a bedhead allure.

Dakota Johnson In Rosetta Getty – American Society Of Cinematographers Awards

Dakota Johnson attended the American Society Of Cinematographers Awards on Saturday (February 4) in Hollywood.

I’m still in love with her Valentino gown from the ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ premiere, but even the afterglow from that moment couldn’t heighten my affection for this look.

The Rosetta Getty Pre-Fall 2017 two-piece ensemble was clearly meant to be viewed from the back, but even so there was no covering up its resemblance to a smock.

The rather clumsy, backwards tone continued with the styling, most particularly her hair that seemed just as much of an afterthought.

Get The Look: Dakota Johnson’s ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ Fifty Shades Darker Braid

Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend created Dakota Johnson’s amazing hairstyle at for the LA premiere of ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ last night.

He said, “For the Fifty Shades Darker premiere, we really wanted the focus to be on Dakota’s gorgeous dress. We decided to keep her hair out of her face by doing a long, textured braid in the back.”

“I started by spraying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray to her damp roots and then blew her hair out with my mixed bristle round brush.”

“Once her hair was dry, I set the top mohawk section with duck bill clips to create volume. I then sprayed my paddle brush with Dove Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo and vigorously brushed all of her hair in the back for volume and texture.

“Once her hair had the perfect texture, I went in and twisted uneven sections of her locks into braids and twists. As I went along, I used dark bobby pins to keep the loose bits secured.”

“When I was happy with the plait, I secured it with a few Blax elastics. I then released the mohawk section from the duck bill clips and used a bit of Dove Absolute Curls Crème Serum to get a bit of shine on the front.”

“I topped this look off by pulling her front pieces back and securing it with dark scunci bobby pins. The result is a perfectly imperfect play on a plaited textured look.”

Dakota Johnson In Valentino – ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ LA Premiere

Even though Rita Ora took to the red carpet wearing a go-big Giambattista Valli Couture gown, Dakota Johnson held her own for the LA premiere of ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ on Thursday (February 2).

I’m so enamoured with the powdery, nude-pink hue of this floor-grazing gown from Valentino.

Elegant yet sultry, this look ticks all the sartorial boxes.
