Johnson selected a white, plunging Saint Laurent design featuring rhinestone embellishment on the neckline and at the waist. She teamed the look with a Roger Vivier clutch and deep wine-colored pout. (Hat tip to her stylist Kate Young for the great pick.)
This is the second low-cut gown the 25-year-old star has worn to promote the film, first stepping out in a long-sleeve, black Dior design at the Berlin premiere Wednesday. She also has a go-to hairstyle — textured strands and slightly-messy bangs.

If you’ve been paying close attention to her bangs, you probably noticed they look different. That’s because she cut them herself.
“I was up extra early to do her hair for The Today Show and when she showed up she had cut her own bangs,” Johnson’s hairstylist Mark Townsend told W magazine. “I don’t advise cutting one’s own bangs, but they looked great. A little choppier than I usually do them, but it’s what she wanted. So, if you watch her segment, bangs cut by Dakota.”
Townsend added that he likes to keep Johnson’s hair very natural and undone looking. (And as well all know, perfecting that perfect undone texture isn’t always easy)
“When I’m styling her, I think a lot about Jane Birkin — that effortless, breezy hair — but the other nice thing about fringe is it’s a hairstyle all on its own,” he said. “You can do what you want with the rest of your hair — a messy bun, a ponytail, natural waves — as long as you spend the time on the bangs.”
