Dakota Johnson brought surrealist style to the red carpet at the 2021 Gotham Awards.

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” star hit the red carpet in a black Schiaparelli dress, hailing from the brand’s spring 2022 collection. The number featured a midi length, as well as subtle front stitching. Its’ quirkiest element came from its halter-neck silhouette, composed of a gold lip-shaped accent attached to gold chains. Johnson’s dress was minimally accessorized with curved gold Ana Khouri rings.

When it came to shoes, the “Ben and Kate” star wore a pair of puffy Gianvito Rossi sandals. The Bijoux style included black leather uppers, as well as sleek 4.3-inch stiletto heels. However, their boldest element came from curved toe and ankle straps, given added thickness from a padded texture. The accent gave the versatile style an added playfulness, coordinating smoothly with her surrealist dress. Johnson’s sandals can be pre-ordered for $925 from BergdorfGoodman.com.
