Well, it’s finally here! The much anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film has premiered! The initial world premiere was in Berlin on Wednesday, as part of the Berlin Film Festival, and on Thursday the stars arrived in London for the UK premiere. The evening started with a reception at Claridges Hotel, before Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, and the rest of the guests moved on to the main event at the Odeon in Leicester Square. They then wrapped up the night with an afterparty at Aqua London.
Two premieres in two nights – in two different countries! – must be a lot of work for anyone, but rising star Dakota Johnson still looked absolutely radiant when she appeared on the red carpet in London. She wore a simple but beautiful off-white St Laurent dress, with a deep V-neck and plunging back edged with silver. She kept the rest of her outfit understated, with a small silver clutch bag and strappy silver heels. Her hair was simple, just straight and highlighting her signature bangs, and she kept her makeup natural except for dramatic dark red lipstick. Her co-star Jamie Dornan looked every inch the millionaire businessman in an immaculate suit as he posed alongside her.
It looks like Dakota has found the look she likes – her black Christian Dior dress at the Berlin premiere was similarly plunging, with the extra sexy detail of a thigh-high split. She certainly looked stunning in her white dress at the UK premiere, but it didn’t look the most practical – she had to keep readjusting it to avoid any accidental wardrobe malfunctions! Later on in the evening, she opted to cover up a little with a black leather jacket, which made for a great edgy contrast with the ethereal white dress
There were plenty of other stars at the premiere, of course, not least Jamie’s wife Amelia Warner, who has been accompanying him on the promotional tour. Other guests at the Odeon included Ashley Roberts, Maria Menounos, Denise Van Outen, Kate Garraway, Jamelia, and Sadie Frost.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson was of course also present, looking glamorous in a black sparkling dress, and accompanied by her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Writer E.L. James, who first created the bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey was also present at the premiere, and posed alongside Dakota, Jamie and Sam.
Now that it’s open in Germany and the UK, the movie will be premiering in the US on Valentine’s Day.
What do you think of Dakota’s red carpet choices so far? Will you be going to see Fifty Shades of Grey over the weekend?
