Dakota Johnson is our Anastasia Steele and she plays the role to perfection. But there was a time when she was just known as Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson's daughter. These pics of Dakota before Fifty Shades of Grey came along really show how much she's transformed. Because of her famous parents, Dakota has been in the public eye since she was a kid ... and had blonde hair. It's inspiring to see her transformation, mostly because this girl has been stylish since birth.
