Dakota Johnson may not have been all Fifty Shades of Grey fans' first choice to play Anastasia Steele. Okay, to be completely blunt, even though the flick is in the can, many of us are still struggling to see her in the role. But that may be all about to change!
While the glimpses of her from the set -- and even in magazines, posing in and out of character -- felt kinda humdrum (see left), her new magazine cover for Elle South Africa is actually OMG-worthy. I promise.
Check it out ...
What'd I tell ya?! What a difference from the one of her on set, right?! That cover shot has to be the absolute sexiest she's looked since busting onto the scene as Ana. And the hair! It actually looks like she's owning the darker hue now. Love, love, love. So glam.
Maybe it wasn't the intention of the stylist or Elle or even Dakota to do this, but she looks like the more sophisticated Ana we get to know in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Maybe this is a sneak peek of what we can expect in those sequels (if/when they're made)? Hot!
What do you think about Dakota's look here? Is it close to how you visualized Ana in the second and third books?
