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.

Most Worn Brand 2015 – Valentino

Most Worn Brand 2015 – Valentino

It may seem that fashion powerhouses such as Christian Dior or last year’s most worn brand, Louis Vuitton, were easy winners for 2015’s most popularly donned brand. But no matter how many times Jennifer Lawrence and Natalie Portman wore Dior, the classic charms of Valentino proved victorious.

Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli created nothing short of sartorial magic for a range of celebrities this past year.

The constellation of Valentino-clad stars including Jane Fonda, Kate Mara, and Zoe Kravitz (debuting a lovely softer side in an ethereal white gown) shows the sheer versatility of the label to cross the red carpet, style, and age spectrum.

From intricately beautiful floral embroideries to out-of-this-world planetary patterns and goddess gowns, the sense of artful sophistication is strong, all amidst a sweetly whimsical background.

Clearly, such a fusion makes for quite the winning combination.
