On the eve of her 28th birthday, Dakota Johnson was at the New York Film Festival for a screening of the film Call Me By Your Name. Our Anastasia Steele was there to support the film's director Luca Guadagnino, who you may recall as being the director of two films Dakota worked on -- A Bigger Splash and Suspiria. While there, Dakota got a lovely surprise from her friend Selena Gomez, who seemed to appear out of nowhere to give her a great big birthday hug.

  • It's all hugs and smiles.

    By the looks of this hug, these two ladies really have love for each other. And there also seems to be a surprise element to this embrace. Did Dakota know Selena was going to be there? Maybe she didn't expect her at this exact moment. Either way, the joy seen here between two women we didn't realize were such great friends is so evident.

    It's clear that Selena really does give awesome hugs -- she's all in, with so much love on her face. This older pic of Selena hugging longtime pal Taylor Swift is proof. And now it's also all coming together -- both Selena and Dakota are part of Taylor's squad. Of course!

  • They shared the love with fans, too.

    After the two embraced, they also took the time to take pics with fans who were very lucky to be nearby. They also happily posed for selfies.

  • It's not their first red carpet event together.

    Back in 2015, at the InStyle Awards, Dakota and Selena posed for some red carpet pics together. Plus (and here's a fun tidbit), these two also have the same stylist, Kate Young. Kate has also styled Michelle Williams and Margot Robbie and is therefore partially responsible for the looks we have loved on some of our faves.
