The "It" Girl of the moment is, without question, Dakota Johnson. The Fifty Shades of Grey leading lady is everywhere lately, thanks to the stunning box office success of the sexy flick. And everywhere she is, she's sporting brunette locks and bangs a la Anastasia Steele -- except on the cover of Cosmopolitan Australia's April issue. Jaws are droppping over the star's bang-free, blond locks in the shot.

Not that we don't love the brunette bangs Dakota is currently rocking, but this these sultry golden waves make her look like a total glamazon.

The actress, who has a serious star pedigree thanks to mom Melanie Griffith, dad Don Johnson, and grandma Tippi Hendren, has already been asked what she'll do if everyone continues to see her as Ana well after the franchise wraps. But ... just look at her! There's no way that's going to hold her back from going onto be a major star. The fluid, effortless seeming transitions between Ana's 'do and this Hollywood siren look proves she'll easily steer clear of being pigeonholed as Anastasia for the rest of her career.

'Course the cover shot is bound to fuel the neverending debate over whether we should keep or leave bangs. The bottom-line is that it depends on your face! And personal style. But this Cosmo cover puts any debate about Dakota to rest: Being the lucky "It" Girl that she is, the Fifty Shades star can pull off any look she wants -- flawlessly.
