For the event—which she attended in light of her movie "Daddio" being premiered there—the daughter of iconic actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith paired her ensemble with strappy black heels.

Opting for a minimalist feel, she accessorized with a long-string necklace with an emerald-colored stone and a black feather. She also wore a matching ring.

"Is it flattering? Does it look cool? Is it a designer that feels right for now?" Kate disclosed concerning their checklist. Dakota also marches to the beat of her own drum when it comes to her style, not fussing over trends. As Kate puts it, "She is never like, 'I need to wear this because I saw it on Instagram.'"

Eagle-eyed observers may have noticed that in the clip, Dakota was not wearing the gorgeous emerald diamond ring she was previously seen wearing at events last year (2023). This was the alleged ring with which her famous boyfriend, Chris Martin, reportedly proposed to her privately, as reported by a media outlet earlier this year (2024).

Someone deemed a source by the media outlet that reported on the news revealed that the couple "got engaged" some time ago and that they initially decided to keep the news under wraps.

The same source went on to explain that, previously, the duo, who have been enthralled with each other since they started dating, had been comfortable sharing the exciting news with their social circles.

Though they have the intent to get married, the source explained that Dakota and Chris are in no immediate rush to the altar as they are taking the time to bask in the glow of their engagement. When it comes to their shared life together, Dakota Johnson and Chris tend to prefer enjoying their romance away from the spotlight.

However, in a past interview, Dakota disclosed some personal details. She spoke about living a serene and intimate lifestyle in Malibu with Chris, and when she was asked about how she feels getting to see him perform, Dakota expressed having a deep admiration for his dedication to music.
