Dakota Johnson doesn’t normally give much away about her private life, but this all changed when she stepped out looking smitten with Drowners bandman Matthew Hitt yesterday.
The 25-year-old Fifty Shades Of Grey actress looked proud as punch to be parading her hot rocker man out and about in New York as she walked to the set of her new movie, How To Be Single.
Linking arms with the American guitarist (who has also modelled for Gucci and All Saints), Dakota made sure to match her beau’s style in a fitted black mini dress, a black denim jacket and tortoishell sunnies, while Matt kept it cool in matching black denim jeans and a leather jacket.
A pair of cheetah-print calf boots added a ’60s mod edge to Dakota’s all-black ensemble, while her new polished chesnut bob looked swishier than ever. Looking good, lady!
So who’s her latest accessory? Well, Dakota and Matthew actually dated back in 2014 for six months, but were thought to have split due to the actress’ fame skyrocketing after her saucy role as Ana Steele.
‘[Dakota] has been way too busy to focus any attention to her relationship and Matthew totally shut her out of his life because of that,’ a source told Hollywood Life at the time.
‘He hated that she took the film, and he hated all the talk and rumors that she was in a relationship with Jamie [Dornan] but that was obviously all in his head.’
Still, it looks like American-Welsh indie rocker has changed his mind about his A-list lady, as the pair really couldn’t take their eyes off each other during their early morning stroll.
The couple were also spotted walking her pet pooch Zeppelin together last week, so we suspect their rekindled romance has been going down in private for a while…
It looks like Dakota and Matthew are going to give Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter a run for their money in the matchy matchy style stakes – even last year when they were dating, they never failed to work co-ordinating rock chic outfits (in black, obv).
Here’s to many more stylish snaps of the new coolest couple in town.
