50 Shades of Dakota Johnson

It has been the most anticipated movie in years, and over the past weekend ’50 Shades of Grey’ has been breaking box office records all over the country. I must admit to being one of the few people who have no interest in seeing the film:- I hated the book and can’t really see how the film will be any better. I am interested, however, in the wardrobe of the film’s leading lady, the gorgeous Dakota Johnson. Dakota is not only breathing life into the seriously annoying Anastasia Steele, she is also lighting up red carpets everywhere with her fabulous wardrobe.

This is a lady who knows exactly how to make a statement on the red carpet, opting for fuss free looks that she accessorises with a statement lip and very little else. On the 50 Shades trail we have seen a series of black and white outfits that have been impressive in their diversity, from fluffy jumpers to elegant full length looks. My favourite is the Saint Laurent silver edged gown with the plunging neckline that she kept fresh and youthful with minimal accessories. For the Berlin film festival she opted for another plunge front gown, this time a black Dior long-sleeved dress in silk wool – again accessorised minimally, again a total hit.

Of course, Dakota is the daughter of Hollywood royalty, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and so wowing on the red carpet is already in her blood. I’m really excited to see what other looks Dakota wears as the 50 Shades bandwagon rolls on.

Get the Dakota look.

Golden Globes Great Gowns

Awards season started properly last night with the Golden Globes, which saw all the beautiful people out in force on the red carpet. The Golden Globes is always a seriously glamorous night, second only to the Oscars in terms of importance and star power, so, as to be expected, there were some seriously glamorous looks to be seen on the red carpet, with some colour and texture trends pointing the way to what we may see at the Oscars and Bafta’s.

It has to be said, there were some underwhelming looks. I hated the 1970s bridesmaid dress worn by the usually wonderful Kiera Knightley (I’m blaming pregnancy hormones for that one.), whilst Lena Dunham did her usual trick of picking a great colour, but a bad dress. I was really disappointed with Rosamund Pike’s Vera Wang dress, which seemed to want to let everything hang out, whilst I think that Amy Adams needs a much stronger colour to really stand out on the red carpet.

But there were also looks to love and swoon over. Jessica Chastain channelled Marilyn and Rita Hayworth in Versace, whilst my favourite yellow was a triumph, especially when teamed with green a la Leslie Mann. I also adored the metallic silver trend, most noticeably when worn by rising star Dakota Johnson, and award winner Julianne Moore.

Did you have a favourite dress from the night?
