Dakota Johnson looked awesome in a low-key Gucci at the Spirit Awards

2019 Independent Spirit Awards

The Independent Spirit Awards are usually a showcase for low-key fashion – very few people really get all dolled up, although that’s changing a bit too. I remember when people really did show up in jeans and sandals. Now most of the men just wear a suit and no ite, and more women just wear pretty cocktail dresses or trousers. Dakota Johnson reps Gucci, so of course she wore Gucci, but this was a nice low-key look. It’s actually a two-piece – flowy cropped Capris which look like a skirt and a strapless thing up top. The top actually doesn’t fit her properly, but whatever. She looks gorgeous.

2019 Independent Spirit Awards

Dakota and Tilda Swinton were there to represent Suspiria, which won the Robert Altman Award, which is sort of like the de facto ensemble award. Tilda wore Haider Ackermann and I’m obsessed with those trousers. SO GOOD.

2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Chloë Grace Moretz – who was also there for Suspiria – wore Loew. This feels a tad over-the-top, but whatever. It’s just kind of a bad dress in general.

Glenn Close in Sies Marjan, with her dog Pippen. Pippen came on stage with her when she won! This was Glenn’s first time at the Spirit Awards and I think she was surprised by them. She really thought that it was just going to be, like, a tent in Santa Monica and everyone would be wearing jeans. Pippen was happy that Glenn won too.

Shangela Laquifa Wadley wore Jovani on the red carpet, but of course she changed for her performance!

    Tilda’s jacket gives me life. It is incredible! I’m going to be old fashioned about the other clothes: if I don’t have anything nice to say—don’t say it at all.

    • FluffyPrincess says:

      Right? I love her outfit. She really has such great instincts for fashion and fashion forward pieces.

      Glenn Close looks like a baked potato in wrapped in foil.

      Chloe doesn’t seem to have good fashion sense. She seems to pick unusual clothes, but none of them are ever flattering.

  2. minx says:

    Glenn, why?!
    That side shot of Dakota, looks like her whole top is moving south.

    • Kaye says:

      It needs a hoik, as the FugGirls would say.

    • Nancy says:

      minx: Oh my, it does appear there could be a situation here. I love the capris, I wear them with boots. Her outfit is adorable, but it makes her bosoms fall so low, she looks like a grandma. Plus her bangs and hair are stringy. Nothing like having famous parents to get you in the door. They should pack up that outfit and mail it to me 😏 sidenote: Chloe looks dope. She is young and can get away with fads and outfits like this. I like it. Plus, she was in a movie we just watched and I was impressed.

    Tilda Swinton=WOW

  5. Marigold says:

    Her bangs and that top should run away together. The top clearly has a head start.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Stand aside for Pippen you peasants!!

  7. Khy says:

    Pippen’s fur looks like velvet.

  8. Erin says:

    I’m just here to say Glenn’s outfit is giving me life. She loves what she’s wearing and she doesn’t care.

    • Nancy says:

      You’re right. She is an older woman and it looks like she is having fun. I saw clips of the dog doing cute dog things on stage and Glenn was glowing. It’s her time to shine. Long overdue.

    (drunken, slurry voice) JOOOVAAANIIIII!!

    I love Dakota’s hair and make-up, she looks so happy and relaxed. The top looks like it’s sliding down, but the pattern is cute.

    • BchyYogi says:

      Dakota’s outfit cringes, does not fit, and F gucci, M’K??

    • StellainNH says:

      I don’t like Dakota’s hair. To me, it looks like it needs to be washed.

    • josephine says:

      If the top fit better I would love the outfit. And while I am not anti-bangs at all, I don’t think her particular bangs work. I wish there was more to them so they looked more 60s/mod.

  11. Chaine says:

    I know I shouldn’t at this stage in her career but when I look at her I still can’t not see young Don Johnson in a wig and lipstick.

    • Nancy says:

      Lol. She looks more like him than Melanie. Has she done anything other than those 50 shade movies. I don’t think she’s much of an actress. I do like her mom’s work. Working Girl obviously and Pacific Heights, I think it was, with Michael Keaton as the bad guy. With her, it was about that voice, and the bod didn’t hurt either!

      • ChillyWilly says:

        My favorite Melanie movie is Something Wild. Her best performance IMO. Plis, an adorable and sexy young Jeff Daniels!

      • Lucy2 says:

        I’m not terribly impressed with her as an actress yet, but she has done a lot of different movies and shows.

        I would love her outfit if the top wasn’t so low-cut, it’s practically had her waist and looks terrible.

  12. Insomniac says:

    Wow, Dakota really looks like her mom in a couple of those pics. And it’s nice to see Suspiria get some love.

  13. Lucy says:

    I need Dakota’s full look! And I’ve seen Tilda’s jacket on Timothee before.

  14. Heat says:

    Sir Pippin of Beanfield! Glenn has really stepped up her Insta game – he has his own account!

  15. Charfromdarock says:

    Pippen is gorgeous!

  16. ChillyWilly says:

    Glen looks like a gay baked potato! But that’s okay with me. She and Pippen can do no wrong in my eyes. 😍

  17. Becks says:

    I love Dakota’s look, but I am here for Pippen!!!

  18. LolaB says:

    Can I just say that it makes me so happy that Shangela got covered today?

  19. Poppy says:

    Tessa is definitely my girl crush of 2019 😍😍

  20. stormsmama says:

    I like the gucci look here but i thought we were boycotting gucci?!!!
    I cant afford gucci so it isn’t a thing for me regardless
    but i can not so easily forgive or forget that blackface dogwhistle sewatert they just made (and pulled)
    why has everyone else??

  21. Ann says:

    That Chole Grace chick’s dress is so freaking cheap looking and ugly. Ugly shoes too. Love Shangela but wish she wasn’t wearing tights. Dakota Johnson’s look works for me and I love the style of shoes she’s wearing but I get secondhand pain in my toes just looking at them. I’m jealous of women with dainty feet who can wear stilettos like that.

    • BchyYogi says:

      Chloe dress is amazing, just not for this particular body, as it’s too big and not the right color palette. Should be on the dragon tattoo person, where is she lately?

    Is glenn close wearing wrinkled tin foil?
