Dakota Johnson Just Wore a Wedding Dress With Mules

Dakota Johnson is in her elegant era, and her latest look affirmed that she has polished dressing down to a T. Attending a screening for her latest film, Daddio, Johnson wore an outfit that, had I not known otherwise, I would have assumed she found in a bridal store.

Selecting a gauzy dress from French fashion house Chloé, whose A/W 24 show was heralded as one of the best of the season, Johnson’s dress didn’t feel bridal just because it was white. Falling elegantly to the ankle, the dress is made from a very delicate chiffon crêpe material—one that many brides choose to wear on their big day. Not only that, but the ethereal design also boasts a romantic cape detail over the shoulders, which just so happens to be a key bridal trend this year, too.

Making her red carpet ensemble feel all the more ceremonial, the actor accessorized with drop earrings and an ivory hair bow. Indeed, from head to toe, Johnson’s bridal-inspired look could have been plucked straight from a (very chic) Pinterest wedding board. However, what came next is also worth highlighting.

Instead of slipping into a pair of ivory heels, which would have been an obvious choice, she reached for tall black mules with a bright-gold heel. Nodding to her style-icon status, Johnson tapped into a growing summer shoe trend in the most unexpected way. Skirting the block-color mules that are everywhere right now, Johnson’s black-and-gold pair offers more coverage on the foot with a subtle peep-toe detail. Contrasting the angelic feel of her flowing white dress, her shoe choice added a directional twist to her outfit and stopped it from looking too sweet.
