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.
