Have you finally stopped fanning yourself after finding out who would be playing Christian Grey in the upcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey? (If so, maybe don’t click this link to see a photo of Jamie Dornan in his underwear before you finish reading this article.) Well, now that they’ve found the perfect guy for Grey’s silk ties, the film can go full steam ahead — as evidenced by Dakota Johnson’s new do.
The actress, who will be playing naive college senior Anastasia Steele who falls for Grey’s, er, charms, went shopping with a pal at West Hollywood’s The Grove shopping center, debuting her brand-new, allover brunette do. She’s been darkening up from her naturally blonde locks (she is Melanie Griffith’s daughter, after all) for a few months now, but this is the first time she’s shown off much darker hair since the role was announced.
Last we saw Johnson, at the LACMA gala in early November, she didn’t appear to have the blunt, choppy bangs she’s wearing in this photo — meaning that she may be immersing herself completely in this role, starting from the hair down. We think Christian Grey would be proud.
What do you think of the new look? Can you picture her as Ana now? And can we talk about how hot Jamie Dornan is now that you’ve made it through this post?
