Fugger: Dakota Johnson

Met Gala Fugs and Fabs: Metallics

Anne Hathaway just might be the Droid I’m looking for, except I don’t want to end that sentence on the preposition, so I’m still typing.

Oscars Well Played: Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent

For those who’ve been impatient with Dakota leaving her hair down on all the red carpets, this may please you:

The entire ensemble pleases me. It’s very Naomi Watts to me, actually — really sexy but really simple, with the confidence of knowing its little touches are just enough. And while I doubt she actually wants people to FORGET about Fifty Shades, given the glowing reviews for her performance in it, the gown also underlines that she’s more than just an eight-hundred-sexual-trick pony. In other words, she certainly ought to be a bona fide movie star, and the Oscars are a good place to dress like one.

SNL40 Fug or Fab: Dakota Johnson in Sonia Rykiel

Point one in Dakota’s favor is that I think her hair looks a little shinier and bouncier than on the various Fifty Shades red carpets.

Point two is that I never fail to stop and stare at sparkles. I actually think this is fun and perfectly befitting of a 25-year old who just had her big Movie Star moment, and got all the good reviews, and can exhale that she’s coming out of this thing with her trajectory still on the rise. I’m just struggling with whether she should have exhaled in something even about two inches longer. Or with slightly sexier nighttime styling. SOMETHING. It’s got a lot of nice elements, but it’s not quite an all-star.

Fug the Cover: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan on Glamour March 2015

All jokes and rumors aside, I don’t necessarily get the vibe that these two dislike each other. I DO get the vibe that they are like old war buddies who can’t see each other without having flashbacks to grisly things they never want to experience again. (The movie also apparently required reshoots of many of these sex scenes that probably were awkward enough to do the first go-round.) Which, I mean, it’s not like the source material was a mystery when they both signed on for the project, but I also sympathize, because it happens all the time that something you think will be no big deal turns out to be HORRIBLE.

Anyway, as such, the chemistry in photos is not merely absent, but in fact hanging out with Punxsutawney Phil and giving thanks for six more weeks of winter. His face in EVERY PHOTO bespeaks the inner anguish of the damned.
