Dakota Johnson Makes a Cliché Spring Trend Feel Fresh

Dakota Johnson is never one to follow the trends. Opting for classic staples mixed in with fashion-forward pieces that break the mold, the actress dances to the beat of her own sartorial drum. So it comes as no surprise that Johnson is able to rework an otherwise stylistic cliché to be a fresh, exciting fashion statement.

Over the weekend, Johnson demonstrated her unwavering love for Gucci at Elton John's 70th birthday party at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont. Her latest look from the Italian fashion house might be a "predictable" spring ensemble on paper—a floral maxi dress—yet nothing about the Pre-Fall piece was played out. For starters, the garment's ornate pattern, comprising of oversize flowers in an array of bold colors, was a detailed brocade upon sheer black silk—a moody departure from typical spring florals. The silhouette balanced a plunging neckline with sheer long sleeves that boasted a bit of volume. Johnson paired the look with a timeless pair of black peep-toe platforms and a minimal evening clutch.
