Two rebel forces meet.

On Wednesday night, Dakota Johnson became the first Hollywood star to wear Hedi Slimane’s new Celine collection on the red carpet. The siren red, draped sequin gown was look 40 in the spring 2019 runway collection that sparked a fiery debate inside the fashion industry when it was shown at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month

Some fashion critics and devout customers of the old Celine, designed by fierce female designer Phoebe Philo, took issue with Slimane’s decision to gut her legacy from the LVMH-owned house completely. For his first collection, he excised the accent from the Celine name, and showed a lineup true to his own rock n’ roll aesthetic, although this dress is among the more ladylike styles that were on offer, with billowy sleeves and a draped waist.

Fittingly, Johnson wore the devilish-red dress at the premiere for Suspiria, director Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the Dario Argento-helmed 1977 horror pic about a dance school run by witches. She stars along with Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth and Chloe Grace Moretz.
