Hedi Slimane's debut collection for Celine could have polarized the fashion community, but that does not stop actress Dakota Johnson from planting a flag on the red carpet to support the newly appointed designer. After Lady Gaga and CL made fun of Slimane's new bags on Instagram, Johnson became the first celebrity to wear Celine de Slimane on the red carpet last night, choosing a red sequined minidress from her first collection for the premiere of Los Angeles. Suspiria. This is not the first time that Johnson has gravitated towards Slimane's designs. She was a fanatic when he was in charge of Saint Laurent. For the London premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey In 2015, Johnson launched into one of Saint Laurent's popular laceless dresses: he wore a red version for the Oscars just two weeks later.
The flared sleeve dress is in keeping with the Slimane design firms: short, shiny, V-neckline and vixenish neckline for an added touch of 80's glamor. What makes Johnson's dress stand out, at least inside of Slimane's work, it's his color. In the middle of the Slimane show, mostly minis and black suits, there were only six colorful dresses, and only one in red. It is also appropriate for the star to choose the bold tone, since it also turns out to be a leitmotiv in the film directed by Luca Guadagnino. The actress kept her simple accessories, choosing the romantic drop earrings Sophie Buhai and sandals Giuseppe Zanotti.
