While on the jury at the Marrakech International Film Festival in Morocco, Dakota Johnson didn't disappoint when it came to fashion. Not that anyone thought she would. Dakota's Gucci gown was a silky pale blue, cut in a similar deep-v style to the one she wore to the Fifty Shades Darker premiere in Los Angeles last year. This gown, however, may have had a classic look in the front, but it was the detailing in the back that showed off a bit of Dakota's whimsical personality and truly wowed. 

  • The front was pure Hollywood with a gorgeous plunging neckline.

    The length was super long and it draped perfectly. The black sash was a beautiful contrast.

  • But the back was outer-worldly gorgeous, with some calling it a Cupid dress.

    Elle magazine called the dress "Cupid-worthy" and though we are a little early for Valentine's Day, we do know things are heating up between Dakota and boyfriend Chris Martin. (They spent Thanksgiving with Chris's kids and his ex wife, Gwyneth Paltrow. If that doesn't say serious ...) 

    The arrow details on this gown are absolutely incredible, but it's that sweet heart right in the center of the lower back that is swoon-worthy, adding just the right amount of fun without taking away from its elegance. 

  • The detailing is playful with a bit of shimmer but not too much.

    We'd guess when Gucci designers described this gown, it could have sounded a bit garish. But taking one look it at, it's clear it's perfection. And perfect for Dakota, who has been wearing Gucci for the entire film festival. 

    Not only is Dakota's street style always on point but her dress-up style as well.

  • Dakota also used her platform to speak out.

    Of course, Dakota being Dakota, she wasn't about to just dazzle with her wardrobe. At the opening of the festival, the Suspira actress said, "[I was] under the impression that there were almost as many women involved in cinema behind the camera, in front of the camera, behind film festivals and in film festivals. This jury happens to have more women and perhaps there might be an avenue for this to occur more often in the future, and I think that’s awesome."  

    Awesome for so many reasons.
