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.
