Dakota Johnson In Gucci – 2017 Met Gala

Dakota Johnson went for the drama on the blue carpet of the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a dramatic Gucci gown with cut-out detailing and ruffle rosettes galore.

This one took me a minute, you guys. My first reaction was rather ‘meh’, but this one really grew on me. The double strap around the waist and chest is very viscerally appealing, and from a design standpoint, it’s really cool that the same straps are working to hold together the bodice and serve as sleeves.

And now those rosettes. While they are almost heavy-handed at certain angles, they’re also completely striking from others.

Her rosy cheeks and matte mauve lips (a huge makeup trend for the night) are fresh and lovely.

So weigh in: What do you think of this look?

    I’m surprised by how much I love this. It’s Gucci, not my cup of tea but it’s on theme and good enough.

    It’s on theme, it is grand enough for the occasion and has plenty of drama. I love it, one of the best of the night.

    I like the closeup, so that makes me think that I’m not a fan of the bottom part of the dress.

    visceral – I do not think that word means what you think it means

    Getting closer to theme and I like it for that reason. Its alot but she works it well. I wish her hair was slicked back more but thats nit-picking. I find this intriguing.

    At first glance I did not like this but it has grown on me.

    Meh?? My instant reaction Wow! Even though it’s black, this is creative, interesting, dramatic, works for the gala. Glad she didn’t try to do anything super thematic with the hair/makeup, it would’ve taken the look ott, the gown is doing enough. She looks beautiful and interesting and exciting enough for the gala.

    JustJared described this as a really deep green. I am actually not bored, as Gucci can be boring in its oversaturation and repetitive styles.

    I like this: it isn’t boring and it is on-theme.
