Dakota Johnson may be on your radar thanks to her role in next year’s hotly anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey film, but here at Look we’re far more concerned with her recent sartorial turns. We spotted the actress cementing her style kudos at the super-fancy Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New Jersey at the weekend, mingling with the starry likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Julianne Moore, Karen Elson and Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
Dakota’s monochrome sundress was similar to Lupita’s Alexander McQueen frock, proving that stylish minds do dress alike, but it’s her swoon-worthy accessories that really caught our eye. Adding a straw boater, Saint Laurent ‘Betty’ bag and Tabitha Simmons pumps, Dakota rocked the perfect mix of polo smarts and casual cool, which prompted us to examine her other stylish outings and led to our official decision to name her our new summer style icon!
From ditzy floral dresses and loafers (for lunch with Benedict Cumberbatch, no less!) to Jason Wu floorsweepers and Gucci gowns, we heart Dakota’s effortless sense of pretty, and have decided to solve all daily wardrobe dilemmas with a ‘What Would Dakota Do?’ mantra. Cute sundress + statement accessories = our summer style, nailed. We can hardly wait to see what she wears for that
